Let’s lift the insanity.

As people’s anger grows at the escalating crisis they see around the world, there is a call to action, a standing up and holding people, countries and industries accountable. We have run out of tolerance for big business ruining our environment and our sense of financial security and future health whilst they enjoy the riches of their industry. This is all very progressive and right, we SHOULD BE MAD!!

At the same time there are thick dividing lines in terms of politics, religion and beliefs in general. There are some people who believe the earth has only existed 6 thousand years even though we have PROOF it’s been here for hundreds of millions of years. Not only do they believe it, they will argue with you about it for as long as you can tolerate! I can tolerate about 1 minute. I don’t see any value in arguing this point; I don’t see how it’s helpful to humanity in any way right now.

I have had people blast me and turn their back on me ‘even though they love me’ for writing a song they viewed as occultist even though the song was about waking up and learning from our past mistakes, making the world a better place.

I even had someone blast me for not doing enough; they think I’m just making pretty pictures and songs. They really didn’t know I have lived a life of service to humanity and nature, they felt they knew everything about me from my facebook page. Well you know what? Even if I am just making pretty pictures and songs, what is the crime in that? Isn’t that better than sitting back and judging our fellow human beings? Isn’t it time we let go of judgement all together? Hasn’t judgement without knowledge been our single most fall from grace as a species?

We do need to hold people accountable for real travesties being created. In order to do that, we need to come together as a human race, not create deeper dividing lines based on perceived differences, or based on the ‘I’m better than you’ mindset. Let’s level the playing field and come up with some new game rules for the human race where everyone gets to play.

I think one thing is important to remember. Every single word on this planet, every religion, concept, border and barrier we have has been invented by people just like you. You can choose to follow or you can choose to lead. I think instinctually we know we are one, but sometimes our beliefs tell us we need to hate another person, so we do – without as much thought as what we’d have for dinner. Does that make sense to you?

If we did only one thing – let go of hate and judgement for our fellow human beings and our perceived differences, we would have the biggest quantum leap we’ve ever experienced. So much fog would be lifted we’d clearly see the real people doing real things to destroy our planet.

When we take love out of our world and replace it with hate, indifference, greed and judgement, we create the world we see today.
So now we know!

Let’s make it impossible for the real perpetrators to hide amongst all of this non value added hate and judgement.
Let’s lift the insanity.
Let’s try a new experiment, one based in knowledge, love and tolerance.

    You really have been getting a hard time! The thing that gets me about religious zealots is their picking and choosing what to emphasize. The Bible that is their guidepost is clear God is love. John 4:8. What could be more simple? If we are the creations of God, we should be loved for who we are, for what we are because we are God's creations. Religion should be inclusive, not only the humans but all creations should be embraced with love, the animal kingdom and planet earth as well.
