There is no doubt that we are where we are due to the efforts of past generations. I’m sure that if some of our ancestors were alive today they would be shocked at the way civilisation has changed.
We have much to thank previous generations for, after all millions died so that we could be ‘free’: but what about the next generation, will they have much to thank us for?
We don’t have to ‘suffer’ in order to contribute to the next generation, on the contrary we can contribute by being joyful, peaceful and loving.
There are lots of people who believe that they’re separate from the rest of humanity, living in ‘their own little world’ but the reality is that our thoughts and behaviours not only have an impact on us as individuals but they also have an impact on our partners, our friends, our family, and in turn their partners, friends and family and so on. Yes, like ripples in a pond, our thoughts and behaviours have an affect on the whole of our civilisation.
You may be sitting there feeling angry or resigned right now, thinking ‘I can’t change anything! but that isn’t true. It only takes one person talking to another (and so on) for word to spread and miracles to happen………just look at the internet!
So, are you gossiping about someone or are you , ‘loving your neighbour?’ you know, the person sitting next to you at work? Be honest, are you treating people the way you’d like to be treated? What would you like to think your children, and their childrens children will thank you for?
I was sent this film the other day and it really made me think about my part in shaping the future. See what you think and please do pass it on. Thank you.
