We surround ourselves with walls built from the blocks of our anger, fear, ignorance and insecurity. Our intention is to protect ourselves. In reality, these carefully constructed walls become the obstacles that hold us back and prevent us from growing, being purposeful and reaching our true potential.
The word, potential, is rooted in the Latin word, posse, and literally means to have power. To be purposeful means to focus our energy with consciousness. If we are to be purposeful and reach our potential as a society, then we must first realize the true power of our intentions.
We are the artists and musicians, the poets and parents, the healers and writers of history. Each of us receives precious gifts from the Universe. They are our birthright. They are the talents and opportunities that come to us seemingly out of nowhere. We show our respect for life by developing our abilities and becoming the best of our highest thoughts.
Considering the ramifications of current world events, now is the time to take a moment in silent pause and ask ourselves, "What do we really want this world to look like?" Then each of us must accept our personal responsibility by taking a leap of faith and making a real effort to tear down the antiquated barriers that stand before us and between us.
By understanding the essence of our spiritual connection to all of humanity, we can create positive change. Each of us is made up of energy. At every moment in time, the totality of all our energy becomes the universe. Through our thoughts, words and actions, we have the power to decide what kind of world we want to live in. Make no mistake about it; we can take our image of a perfect planet and make that dream a reality.
In other words, if enough of us really want justice, peace and love to be the governing force of our civilization, then each of us must create justice, peace and love by being just, peaceful and loving each and every moment of our lives.
