Imagine this for a second: What would the world be like if even 1% of the people on earth attempted to be as pure and genuine as they possibly could?
Now, imagine 25%.
It would literally become a utopia.
Unrealistic, you say? Impossible?
Well guess what: If you believe that, then you are right.
Each one of us has the ability to decide every day about whether we are going to act from our higher self or our lower self.
As long as you don’t believe that it’s possible, it won’t be. Because by not believing it, and acting accordingly, that belief and those actions become the reason why it is not possible.
It’s a chicken and egg game. We cannot expect the world to first become utopian before we begin to believe and act accordingly. That is backwards. It’s like believing a street will never be clean, because others will never stop littering, and littering yourself as a result out of apathy. Your litter and apathy are no less of an issue than any other person’s. As a matter of fact, they ARE the issue. Sadly, if we choose to think this way, we become the cause of the very thing we don’t want to see.
On the other hand, we can stop throwing trash on the ground. If we wanted to go a step further, we could grab a garbage bag, and begin cleaning up. If we wanted to go yet another step further, we could organize a volunteer crew of several dozen people to do shifts every week, to ensure it was always nearly 100% clean. And if we really-really-really wanted it to happen, we could sleep out on the street with a sign that said: “I will sleep here until everyone on this street stops littering.” We are far more capable than we give ourselves credit for.
Every day, we either lead the world closer to the ideal way we know the world should be, or we do things that push the world further away from it. We are either the problem or the solution. It’s not external. It’s the power we all ignore that prevents our collective greatness from shooting up like a surge of fireworks, lighting up the night sky.
