One of the laws of nature is that energy flows where focus dwells. Meaning that, the more we focus on something the more we give it the power it needs to expand. Our attention magnifies things, and we shouldn’t ignore that.
In my humble opinion, I believe it is time for us to focus on how we can create inclusion and acceptance for all, instead of the contrary. We should ask ourselves the following questions?
- How can we forgive those who have hurt us and move on?
- How can we heal from the wounds of our past, learn from our mistakes and disappointments, and then focus on the positives in our lives and the world in general?
- How can we forgive ourselves, let go of guilt and begin relating with each other with empathy, compassion and kindness?
- How can we learn to accept and love one another regardless of our differences?
- How best can we communicate to find common ground on the issues of racism and discrimination?
- What systems can we establish in schools and at home to educate our children about the benefits of loving and accepting others for who they are?
- How can we all be at our best behavior, look out for each other and treat each other with respect?
- How can we re-establish our faith in our police force and the law markers?
- How can we help our police serve us better?
- How can we individually take full responsibility of our actions and behaviors, and start healing ourselves to be better people?
- How can we understand without a reasonable doubt that our skin color is just a color, and that we are all human?
- How can we remember that blood is thicker than color, meaning that who we are underneath our skin colors and race, are our hearts which beat because of the same force, God?
- How can we unite as one big human family? How can we do it?
I believe there is one answer for all these questions. But I want to hear your views, because together we can brainstorm to create this urgently needed global change.
