Changed Course

Yesterday, I was so ready to join the fight against Monsanto whose products are killing us!

I copied and pasted a meme from one of the Facebook activists. I planned to show the videos by biochemist Zach Bush, M.D. who explains how RoundupReady and Roundup have caused drastic changes in the environment and increased dramatically the numbers affected by such diseases as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. I was so angry!

But last night I watched Celestine Prophecy again and was reminded that the ugliness we’re experiencing is an educational tool for the evolution of consciousness — just as Hitler was.

I was also reminded of how I’ve changed by participating in that ugliness recently by judging people with my constant mantra, “There are so many stupid people in the world!” That thought was driven mostly by drivers and pedestrians. It filled my mind every time I encountered people walking into traffic — in front of moving vehicles! — because they were so zoned out on their cell phones.  I uttered it every time some jerk driver would not let me join the traffic flow when the frontage road was ending, and my car was going the speed required to get on the highway.  Or when some race car wannabee was zipping in and out of traffic lanes, cutting it way too close for safety.

How does judging feel?  Crummy!

So crummy that I am now declaring “I will not participate in this madness anymore!”

Instead, as reminded by meditation this morning, I will focus on myself! I will train my mind to attend to the beauty in the world.  I will concentrate on my dreams and aspirations. I will no longer give my power away by judging others.  I will trust the process of life.  And I will replace the ugly mantra with this old one: “Thank you for everything! I have no complaints whatsoever!”

How about you?

    Well said! I’ll definitely watch my “judgement quota” from now on

    You are right! It is so much more important to see the universe in view of the solution rather than in view of the problem. It is important that we become one with nature rather than condemning man’s destruction.

    It is important to start looking at what we used to think of as “waste” and seeing it as building blocks of the future. We can make dark, rich compost from household and yard wastes. We can grow with nature rather than fight negative human tendencies.

    I watched Star Wars VIII yesterday. It wasn’t as good as the older ones, but it did have one important message and that was that it was more important that our greatest power is in our love not in destroying that which we hate.

    It is so easy to look at the negative, but for our own survival, we need to look within and find the good inside ourselves.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Cynet! Great comments!

  4. Hi Daphne. Thanks for stopping by. Watching my judgments is the hardest thing I’ve been trying to learn so far.

    I can so relate to this. All my significant others feel the need to project their main concerns to me so I am supposed to constantly worry about 100 “things” from my 45 year old aluminum cook wear to spraying the border of the garden with roundup to not keeping my cell phone in my front pocket causes it damages sperm. You get the idea.
