How you can change the whole world

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere’s a very interesting concept. See if you can cope with this one.

Driving home from work this evening it came to me that we all see the world very differently depending on who we are, what we know and what we have experienced. We are after-all, all very different people.

We do not see the world as it is. The world is as we see it.

You may need to read that over a few times to have it make any sense to you.

We do not see the world as it is. The world is as we see it.

It does make perfect sense.

And then I threw this concept together with the other idea that I have been playing with in my head:

‘Do not spread any more hate into the world.’

That has to be one of the greatest things that I have ever heard:

‘Do not spread any more hate into the world.’

Think about it this way. We all understand the climate change arguments. We know that the climate is changing, we just don’t necessarily all agree how much of it is caused be human activity.

But I think that we can agree that the build up of carbon in the atmosphere is not good for the environment. Again I am not arguing about where that carbon is coming from and how much of it is contributing to the climate change, just that the carbon is affecting our environment.

We know that too much carbon will choke our environment, making the air that we breathe poisonous and the sun unbearable for us to live under.

So now imagine that the carbon is actually the hate that we are putting out there into the world everyday. Our ‘Hate Emissions’. We are polluting our environment with hateful thoughts, hateful words, intolerance, unfounded gossip and untruths.  That hate doesn’t just disappear, it builds and multiplies upon itself. It poisons the atmosphere choking it of life.

If we live in this toxic environment for long enough we will choke on our own hate and it will incinerate our flesh.

I hope that shocked you. It unnerved me a little.

But there is always good news.

The answer is right here:

We do not see the world as it is.

The world is as we see it, therefore you must have the power within you to change it. The whole world.

Look at the world through hateful eyes and through hateful deeds and you will see a hateful world that will choke and burn you.

Look at the world with compassion and happiness and you will see a world full of love and goodness.

Where a pessimist will see no hope, an optimist will see only hope.

So you can change the whole world. You have the power. You just need to change the way you look at it.

Please stop spreading more hate into the world, you are making it harder for the rest of us to breathe.

    Wouldnt this be great if you could take this a few steps further and take it to the UN to get every country agreeing to decrease their hate emissions by a even 20 per cent every year. Our world would be free of wars in 5 years time. Its a no brainer, so why then is it so hard??????
