"If people understand it, and see the successes of it, then they'll do more." Bono, on Charlie Rose
Bono made that statement in an interview by Charlie Rose: "If people understand it, and see the success of it, then they'll do more." (Bless Bono and others for all they do to feed wellness in Africa and beyond.)
Caring for the planet is just tuning to another arena, & spreading relief. The principle is exactly the same as in "Hope for our World." (Thank you, Bono.) The more focus is given to what is working, the more what's working expands. Conversely, the more fear and anger and despair we rev up ... well, that's a quagmire now isn't it.
Esther Hicks shared with Hay House's Reid Tracy, a line she uses to stop and redirect herself whenever she notices her mind has veered off into streaming negative: "Well, that was unpleasant!" I so applaud Esther’s tactic. 'Disaster looming' IS unpleasant. I have come to believe it will not help the world one bit for me/for us to ‘go there.’
I love/I choose to use my precious life minutes focusing on all that is nurturing our planet’s wellness. Yay! Yay for Alex Lin of Rhode Island, for his example. Hurrahs go out for the many more growing up kids who are doing and caring for our planet. “I don’t see anything uncommon in it,” says Lin, a high school senior from Westerly, Rhode Island. “My friends and I have been doing this since fifth grade. It’s become part of our lifestyle.” http://www.takepart.com/article/2010/04/05/alex-lin-teenage-activist
This morning I’ve a burst of Abraham-Hicks line “wouldn’t it be fun ...” I would love to gift copies of “Hope for our World” as thank you to every kid and grown kid out there who is caring for our earth, putting pedal to the metal with alternate fuels. Before we know it, roadbed sub-layers will all be of recycled glass, _________, __________, __________. Fill in the blanks with the unlimited and marvelous ideas we humans come up with for living in harmony with our Earth. What a joy to be a part of such play!
Carry on then (I say). Hope abounds.
