Have any of you noticed just how violent, ego self-serving and vapid the programming is on television? Do you realize that just because you actively choose to not watch television that you are ignoring the fact that many of our youth are? What can we do about it? Throw our hands up in the air and acclimate ourselves to ‘the way it is’? Or can we join together in spreading positivity through each other into helping others to understand whom and what they were created to be?
Violence is a choice; ego self-serving is a choice; vapidity is a choice. Justbecause many make these choices each and every day doesn’t mean that we have to turn our backs on it. It means that we can proact a new paradigm that instills peace, fosters mutual understanding, creates inner joy and shares Divine love everlasting.
We can participate in making this world a wonderful place in which to live by stepping up to the plate and being whom and what we were created to be while helping others become whom and what they were created to be. How do we do this?
By downplaying the ongoing exposure to our youth with violence, ego self-serving and vapid behaviors. By positively instilling peace through listening to others and exposing them to their inner well being; by bringing them to a greater understanding of our shared reality through dynamic and effective education in the arts, history, philosophies and sciences; by showing them that we can livein joy by being ourselves; and by sharing Divine love with them through the active giving of our talents, skills and abilities in Divine service to others.
If we truly want peace, we must learn how to instill peace; if we truly want understanding, we must understand others; if we want to be joyous, we must choose to live in joy no matter what unfolds; if we want to share Divine love with all of creation, we must learn how to receive it and accept the grace of Divine love.
Until we proactively change the world by sharing Divine love instead of rearranging its circumstances to suit our egotistical whims and yearnings, we will be subjected to the ongoing onslaught of violence, ego self-serving and utter vapidity. It is up to us by the choices we make. We all must learn to choose wisely. Be ye therefore watchful and proactive! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
