Imagine with me for a moment…….
It is pretty hard not to watch television these days and see that we live in a very different world than past generations. The parallels of past historical events are scary to the old and young alike, as we navigate a new world that is familiar to some and very unfamiliar to others. Think what it would be like if we lived in a world where love spread as quickly as hate and negativity.
Imagine with me for a moment that we lived in a world where wars where not a possibility. A world where the lust for power and greed is replaced by an innate desire to spread good and benefit for all those who populate our planet. A world where we see no color, race, gender, socioeconomic status or age. A place where each and every human has equal value and treat each other with mutual respect.
Let’s go a little further. Let’s imagine a world without poverty, famine, homelessness and plight. In this world, money is not used to garner more money, but rather to benefit mankind as a whole. The “have nots” no longer exist. Everyone has sustenance, security and the necessities to live a satisfying life.
Finally, lets imagine a world where love spreads across social media, news and the world as fast as hate and negativity does today. Where every story that we hear on the evening news isn’t about something bad that someone has done to someone else, but rather the goodness that continues to expand. A world where love for people and planet is of equal measure and we exist as a society and universe that promotes a sustainable future for everyone.
I am sure many of you have reached the point in this post where you just might think that I have lost my mind and that none of these things are possible. You believe that I am simply describing a utopian world that will never exist. The reality is that you may be right. However, the unfortunate thing is that everything exists today to make that world a reality, except the the desire and willingness to do so. Perhaps when we have finished destroying ourselves, a new society will emerge that learns how to use the tools available to make that world real. For now, we can all do our part to create just a little bit of that utopian world, if we are willing to put in the effort to do so.
For now, I will dream that that world is possible. If not in this lifetime, perhaps in future generations. I hope you will join me in making your little part of that utopian world a reality. Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
