I’m going to change the world!

I’m going to change the world! Yeah you heard me, I am going to change the world. I am going to do so by changing my small part of it as I work to improve, rebuild, strengthen and live a better life, for by doing so I can and will inspire others to do so. My world affects theirs, thus change is a chain reaction.

Six degrees of separation, a theory that everyone in the entire world is connected through just six people you know. Imagine if you inspire just six people a day, that would be 180 people in a month. Now imagine that, for that same month, those six people did the same thing and each inspire six people they knew and then those six did the same and so on…just for one month. In ten days that is over ten million people, assuming we can keep the chain reaction going.

Voting and politics aren’t going to change the world. We’re too busy arguing who has the right platform.

Social and welfare programs aren’t going to change the world. We have lots of these already in place and yet the problems increase.

Taxes and money aren’t going to change the world. We’re too busy spending it wrong and it’s never enough for when we spend it right!

War and conquest aren’t going to change the world. Why do we think senseless killing of other nations is going to improve or change anything?

Religion isn’t going to change the world. We’re too busy arguing who’s is right.

We’ve been trying all these things for centuries and the result is the same, a world in turmoil. Nothing changes. True change is within you. Only when a person changes and inspires others to do the same, only then will we see the world change.

I vote for a better world. I will support a cause that truly helps someone better themselves. My money and resources will go to bettering my life and those around me when I can. I will fight against injustice and oppression. Humanity and kindness to others is my religion. It’s time for a chain reaction!

What if we’re it?

Let’s suppose for the moment that we, here on earth, are the only life in the universe. The question then remains are we the first to form or the remains of what once was?

In either case we are a poor example of what life there is currently. Wars, atrocities, serious injustices all because someone has chosen to live or believe different than ourselves.

If we are the beginning then we are off to a very bad start. Surely this isn’t the best we can offer the universe in the early stages of life? Dare we go out into the universe with all that we currently have to bring with us? We are not ready!

If we are the last of life here in the universe then we are a sad testament to what once was and I often wonder how bad it was if we are the example, the remains of what once was? Maybe we were shunned and banished form something far greater? Are we to go out in such a sad state, a dim light fading in the darkness? Surely we could’ve done better?

Regardless of which way this is going, surely we can do better? Let us put in one major effort to start or end this better! Stop for a moment and forget your divides, your prejudices, your short sighted assumptions of that which you don’t know, and see the world as it is for what it is and ask of ourselves “How can I do better?”.

Am I ready to go out there?

Life! How do you want it to begin? How do you want it to end?
