Everybody wants to rule the world. If we hold to the belief that humanity has already failed and try to slow down our view of the damage with a social vision we are surrendering to the belief that humanity is bad. When we stop believing in the possibilities we stop building the future.
Human goodness, kindness and tenderness exist
We do not recognize it or know it is even in the world when we act only on disappointment, anger, aggression, discord and discontent begun by deep feelings of hurt that harden into the former. The media is fostering a fear based on paranoia of terrorists and tyrants further fueling the havoc, further fueling suspicion and fear, further separating society from each other.
To say hello to someone is to acknowledge and respect their presence
Becoming more human in the material world is becoming more open and life long, appreciating the subtlety and sensitivity of the heart from which the universe flows, engendering respect. Creating an enlightened society based on our inherent goodness is understanding our community is the product of many generations of hands, minds and influences.
Global self-resurrection, chaos is good news
In other words there is a chance for something good to be born and to happen. It makes space, a gap for solution. When we are tired we need to rest, when we overeat we need to stop eating, the answer is in our basic goodness.
- Tenderheartedness, gentleness and kindness ride tandem not severe.
Survival of the good
Aggression works only to shrink the perspective out of fear and selfishness, we appear to make gains, until our aggression consumes us and we become rigid not flexible at all. At the crossroads of science, technology and nature is this chaos since the industrial revolution we have opposed nature fighting her and tearing her down as has become the habit.
Mother Nature has been very patient waiting for our deep psychic shift
Even a small change can change the long term behavior of a system. Instead of feeling defeated and deflated and know that the signs of progress in any situation are body, speech and mind become more gentle, and being able to hear difficulty without complaining which gives less power to destruct.
- Let kindness and gentleness shine.
The work of our forefathers gets passed onto us
It is a work in progress. We are to cultivate an environment for gentleness. Making room for the “relaxation response,” enough to trust we do not have to tell half-truths.
Feeling from the heart
When we keep pointing fingers the family is weakened. To strengthen is to find feeling in the heart again. These are qualities that can’t be hurried, learning to feel the heart. A culture of people feel kindness and gentleness are weak and futile, out of fear and habit. But by trusting the subtle energies, and trusting patience not anger, those forces have the power to bind us.
Those forces out of the subtlest, smallest change can create a world made of kindness and gentleness.
