It’s much easier to look the other way, to not see the destruction or the evil, or the anger or the hatred. If we notice, we may feel called upon to do something. It’s much easier to stay in the protective darkness of the unconscious than move into consciousness and feel responsible for all you see around you. What you don’t know about, you don’t have to do anything about. Ignorance is bliss.
But it’s not.
We are responsible. Our thoughts create our reality!
Our world is created by our thoughts and our focus, so everything that’s happening, good and bad, is because we’re looking for it or looking at it or ignoring it. Our gaze creates our reality. What we focus on we get.
We must take responsibility for creating our own life, our own experiences, our own consequences. And if we don’t like what we see, we simply shift our gaze to focus on positive, inclusive, highest-good expectations.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed
We’ve become more internationally aware of all the plastic in the ocean, and it is daunting. I stand here with my one plastic bottle and cannot imagine my individual impact can be that great. But the world is me multiplied by billions. I can, I must and I do take responsibility for my own actions.
Every action you take impacts the whole world
You have great power. Every thought you think enters the collective consciousness and shifts it. Are you stepping forth to take responsibility and make the changes you need to make, or are you hiding in the shadows hoping it will all go away or miraculously heal itself?
Take personal responsibility for one thing
If you are personally responsible for one fish dying of refuse or open pollution, you have to take action and make sure that nothing you do is impacting our water. You may need to get active in your neighborhood, or your community or your state to help care for the well-being of the water.
Take as big a step as you are called upon to take, but do take a step.
For instance, I, being a vegan, somewhere along the line saved the life of a few cows. But I’m not the only vegan in the world. There are a lot of us who share this consciousness. I just have to make certain my link in the vegan chain is as steady and as strong as it needs to be to become the change I want to see in the world. It may be as simple as taking a great vegan dish to a potluck to introduce others to the possibilities.
Move out of the unseeing state of unconsciousness. Come out into the world of life-changing conscious awareness and get to work.
