Changing the World

When we are young, we all want to change the world. We see the injustice, the anger, the hate. We see what is wrong, and we see it so clearly, so black and white. We have the energy and we have the drive. Some of us get out and protest. Some run for office. But most just complain.

As we get older, we lose the energy, and we lose the drive. We stop seeing things as black and white, and start seeing them more as shades of gray. We see how things are interrelated. Seeing this makes it harder to simply make one change and have everything else line up perfectly.

One thing Faith said in an article is that we live in a world of consequences. Every action has a corresponding reaction. But sometimes, as Newton pointed out, that action has an equal and opposite reaction. While we tend to fix one thing, we break something else. For instance, you can’t change fuel types overnight. If we introduced a new power source for cars, there would still be cars running on gasoline. There would still be people working in the oil industry. You can’t just eliminate one thing and replace it with another. It takes time.

And we no longer have the energy to get out and protest, or make the big things happen. But truly, unless you can get elected president, and have the congress behind you, you still can’t make big changes. But that is why we start small.

Big changes happen over time. But those big changes start small. They start with an idea. They grow to a hope, then a presence. Eventually, enough people hear the idea, have the hope, and feel the presence so that action is created, and changes are made. It goes back to the law of attraction.

The things that we put the most energy into are the things that we make happen. Any light worker knows this, but you don’t have to be a light worker to do this. It is just a matter of visualizing what we want, and continuing to visualize it, putting positive energy into it. Remember the bumper sticker that said “Visualize World Peace”? Well, do it. The hard thing is to keep positive, and not let negativity into it.

There was a very old episode of Doctor Who, back when Tom Baker starred in the part. The scene showed The Doctor under one of the consoles of the TARDIS (his space/time vehicle) attempting to fix something. He comments, “I think I’m going to stop asking… What else could go wrong?”, and at that moment his ship shakes, “Because when I do, something else goes wrong.” Using energy to make positive change is the same way. You have to stay positive, and keep the negative thoughts out of it.

How do you do that? Well, you notice when you are doing it, and stop yourself. This is true for anything you want to have happen. When Caring Palms was looking to move into its current home, there were a lot of bumps along the way. Every time we hit one, and started thinking negatively, we caught it, dispersed it, and said, “Yes, it will work.”

And while we do this energy work, we don’t need to have all the answers. We don’t need to have solutions. We simply need to put our energies into things being better, and let the energies sort out how this will best be accomplished. Maybe the energies will reach people that can come up with solutions that work. And their energies will reach other people, and those energies will reach others still. Eventually, great change will happen.

All you have to do is believe, and keep picturing it.
