We only have one life and that’s a fact. You can do whatever you want with yours, and no one’s going to stop you. If you want to do good in the world, you have to do something about it, and reading spiritual books, cutting your self out from the world and meditating for years is not going to work. We are seven billion in the world, and still counting. If everyone of us does a little something, like picking that piece of rubbish up from the sidewalk, the world could end up a much better place.
Don’t dwell on what’s in the news, it’s all junk. I’m amazed how there’s only bad news. I’m positive good stuff is happening all over the world as we speak, they just don’t talk about it because people don’t react to it. If the all the news companies joined forces and stopped reporting about the terrorist attacks in the world, the terrorist groups will suddenly have much less power. Because showing hate and anger is what they want us to do, and it’s working.
You could radically change your lifestyle and make it much better. It’s so simple we’re all missing out on it. Sleep when you’re tired. Go out for a walk every now and then. Turn that noisy TV off. Get away from your phone. Eat healthier. Say hello to the old lady living down the road. Write postcards to your parents when you’re on holidays, a few moments of your time means millions for them. Cut away the monotony of your life, go to the countryside for the weekend. Surround yourself with radiant people, let yourself be inspired. Do a little art now and then. Listen to new music. There are millions of things you could do for yourself, and I haven’t even listed a zillionth of it.
Strange as it may seem, our lives are based on a true story. You are the author. You have the choice to make it better, so go change it and make it how you want it.
