This morning’s meditation session wasn’t so easy. Random people and thoughts were popping in my mind. I had maybe a good five minutes of brain rest out of twenty-five minutes of randomness. The main fixation was, “why is change so slow?” Then I started to think about all the people that I’ve come across in my life. Not one person has ever asked me to go to a march of any kind. Not one person has asked me to volunteer anywhere. I’m not including work functions because people go to volunteer functions for work. It’s not something they choose to do on their free time. Everything I’ve done on my own time, I’ve done solo. I occasionally force my son because I mean, how else do we show our children what the world is truly like outside their own bubble?
So, I am one person who has met hundreds of people throughout my life. It makes me question how many others have had a similar experience. If there are many of you saying, “yes, I know what you mean,” then my theory is correct. I’ll explain my theory a little later below.
You could say I am just around the wrong people. That is true. I need to find like-minded individuals. But the questioning is, why are there so many people not like-minded? Why do I come across so many people who want to just live their own lives without the desire to give or even have a cause they care about?
Jeff Bezos just popped in my mind. He had to ask the public what he should donate to. I thought to myself, you have gone your whole life without anything tugging at your heart? I’m not going to criticize him for it or anyone else who rides on the same boat. Why? Because I know we come into this life with an already made blueprint. We’re supposed to be on different paths. In the past, it used to frustrate me, but not anymore. Thanks to astrology 🙂
Why do we have more Jeff Bezos than Mother Teresa? I have no freaken clue. Why is change so slow? My theory…there’s just not enough Mother Teresa’s out there! Massive change takes a lot of power. Lots of people equal a lot of power. Money is huge too, I know.
Positive global change…so complex. Hell, local positive change is so complex.
Things are changing though. As a young girl, I was very aware of how horrible women were treated. I felt fear at a very young age. The #MeToo Movement was a catalyst for real change. It isn’t without flaws. People always find a way to take advantage of a good thing. Still, it shed a spotlight on how men see and treat women. This shit has been going on since the beginning of humankind, it seems like.
Look at the LGBTQ movement. Was I “out” in high school? Hell no. Now we have shows like The 100 with main bi/gay characters. I love that freaken show, by the way. LOL My favorite!
These changes took soooooooo looooong. And we’re still fighting! Racism, we’re still fighting! Clean water for EVERYONE for FREE…hasn’t happened yet. I can go on, but you all already know how unfair life has been for so many. Including animals!
Maybe there are millions of people out there with a little bit of Mother Teresa in their heart. Maybe they just need a little tugging to get them to want to help. But no online snarky comments. No blah blah stuff telling people what they should or shouldn’t do. I mean real help, real change. I think there are a lot of you out there in need of a tug. Really hoping this reaches you.
