I woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed with sadness in my heart and started to cry. I am so upset to see nothing but sadness, pain and suffering across the world. I see tears of anger and sadness in people's eyes due to local and global events of destruction and mayhem. It has made people react in ways that is not normal behavior for themselves. People acting like rabid dogs, fighting over a bone, degrading others, violating, slaying , dying of terminal illnesses, hunger, poverty etc. Destroying each other by their hurtful words and actions. But then I realized that the sadness in the world isn't a quality of the world but rather the quality in which we perceive the world. Acknowledge the sadness in this world, but do what you can do to bring hope, joy and healing. Each one of us is called in a different way to change this world. Some of us may be doing it through our art, volunteering, gardening and so on and so on. The thing is not to try to change the world but be an expression of Joy so WE may be an inspiration onto others. By changing our focus of attention from sadness to joy we already started to change the world. How can you make a difference in the world?
