The world is beautiful ... because of you ... yes you!

We are programmed to believe that we live in a cold and, sometimes, very cruel world - A world where I certainly didn't want to be any more. I didn't want to hear of another war. I didn't want to see another disaster. I certainly didn't want to be a volunteer anymore. I didn't want to see another person, on this planet, have to suffer because of the malicious, political, acts of a few.

The more violence, and suffering, we see, the more we either live in denial and shut off from it; refusing to see the truth or openly face it. Or, we only half listen so it can't affect us that badly. Or, we take it all on board and suffer and suffer and suffer until our minds shut down, in silence and escapism, and block out the rest of the world.

It's not that we don't care. On the contrary, we care so deeply it hurts us to the very core. It's because we don't know how to deal with it. If you're spiritual, we are all beings of pure light and love. If you are religious, we are all souls created in the image of God. If you are a Muslim, then we are all beings of Allah and if you are a Buddhist, we are all just human beings.

Whatever your belief is, we are all essentially the same ... we come from a Source we believe in. Just the fact that we all believe in something - even if it is different ... means we already have something in common.

If we have something in common, we have something to talk about ... not argue ... not fight ... not judge ... not silence ... not ignore ... We should all live by this famous phrase written by Voltaire: - "I may not agree with what you have to say but I shall defend, to the death, your right to say it."
Through talking, we understand each other and become friends. When we become friends our bond can only strengthen year after year after year.

The world is not cold. It is a beautiful place because there are very beautiful people in it - Like you - yes you reading this. If you are reading this, it is because you were meant to see this message and I guarantee you, you are a beautiful beautiful soul. It is because of you that this world will change and, one day, everyone will come to live in peace and harmony.

If we strip away everything that we think defines us - like our titles, our bank accounts, our clothes, our possessions and every one of our labels and then strip away the very flesh and bones that makes us, there is nothing left except your spirit and it is identical to that of everyone else. In fact, it looks the same as 99% of the rest of the world - like air! So, if we're all air, we all merge into one.
We might even call this air "Energy" because we know it's made up of atomic molecules.

A series of events that have taken place over the last 2 weeks has shown me that the true beauty in the world lies in people like you who help others to see their true beauty, attain their full potential and make their own happiness so that they may spread it along to others and, actually, be that change that you crave so much. I share your vision and thank you for being one more who is trying to do their best to bring about this change. May your Source always shine upon you.
