I wrote the following for the 333rd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.
Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. You can find the option to subscribe at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).
With spring around the corner, I can’t help but think about our potential for transformation. I know it sounds cheesy, but this feels like a time in which we can realize our potential and, like the flowers that will soon blossom, change into something beautiful.
This might mean different things to different people. My ideal transformation involves dedicating more time and energy to making content that hopefully makes your day a little better. It also involves more outdoor activities, healthy eating, and of course, exercise.
Your transformation could be anything. Regardless, now feels like the time to go for it. Maybe I feel this way because spring is coming, and the warm weather is long overdue. Maybe it’s because spring has always felt like a time for renewal and a fresh chance to live.
Whatever the reason, now feels like the perfect time to chase those aspirations you assume are out of your reach. If you can find the time and you’re willing to be dedicated, then why not do what inspires you? Why not start now?
As easy as it may be to stay in your comfort zone, never pushing yourself to do the things you know deep down you’re worthy of doing; this feels like a time when we can no longer accept that. Now more than ever, we seem to be on the precipice of a new era.
I believe we are slowly entering a time when people are will no longer be apathetic. Fatigue will be a thing of the past, as for one reason or another, people will start to care about each other. No longer will we care solely about maintaining our own survival or comfort. Something will push us to work together for the common good.
Hopefully, it won’t be some tragedy that unites us. Something will need to happen to shake the masses free from the slumber we’ve so willingly accepted, but the last thing we need is more tragedy. We need a massive display of love and compassion. In my opinion, it’s inevitable.
Now seems like the best time to push for this personal and societal transformation. On a personal level, you can bring it about by incorporating wisdom into your life and striving to be your best self. Making it happen on a global scale is a bit more complicated.
Bringing about a global revolution of love and compassion will forever be a grassroots effort. We must start where we are with the tools available. For most of us, our tools are our words and actions.
We can spread the word while striving to be an example of love in action. We can use the internet and any other available outlet to share our truth and genuinely try to make life a little better for others. This is all we can do for now, but once it catches on, I believe it will spread like wildfire.
This may sound naïve, but I don’t think it’ll take much longer for the world to realize we don’t need war or hatred. I think that one day, we’ll all finally see how war has destroyed our species and our planet. We’ll see the dark road our blind hatred has taken us down.
Then, we’ll work to mend what we’ve broken.
In my ideal version of this future, no act of genocide, environmental catastrophe, or extinction-level-event will be the trigger for us to come together and stop acting so foolish. We need to band together before something awful happens.
I think we can avoid disaster (manmade at least) by embracing the energy of change that’s in the air and encouraging others to be compassionate. We can be agents of change in a world desperately in need of love if we embrace our potential and leave our comfort zone.
This is the best way to rebel against a society that rewards greed and apathy, so let’s embrace the changes in the air and build a new world together.
