The last couple of weeks there was lots going on in the world (and my life), and it was easy to get dragged into the pool of negativity.
Let’s talk oil waste in the Mexican Gulf. And how the focus lies on how much money the disaster costs BP. While the sea life pays a much higher price.
Let’s talk about the way animals are treated. Why are there still laboratory animals needed, I ask myself? I’ve read about Canadian researchers discovering that mice have the same facial expression when experiencing pain as we humans do. Heartbreaking.
Let’s talk slavery. Jason Mraz has taken it upon himself to travel to Africa, and reported that slavery still exists. It left me tongue-tied. See his blog: http://www.freshnessfactorfivethousand.blogspot.com/
Nature. Aminals. Humans. Earth. Universe. We must not neglect one and other, but embrace that we’re all connected. (And if we do f**k up, we must stand clear of the doors, let opportunities in and try to do something about it, if you ask me.) We are entwined by this universal ball of yarn. So, I won’t let the pool of negativity pull me down. Instead, I’m grateful.
I’m grateful for all the lessons I learn. I’m grateful for all the love I experience. And I’m trying to help in any way I can (even when it feels like just another drop in the ocean). By staying alert. By making changes in my life when necessary. By using my heart when my eyes get confused. By picking up signals. By sharing.
This is me sharing, and trying to help.
Today this was posted on Twitter. I already retweeted the link, and added it to Gratitudelog.
It’s like this. On the 4th of June this boy, Kyron Richard Horman, has gone missing.
If you’re reading this blog, please spread the word. I know it’s a long shot, but I wouldn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to help. Would you? The digital highway could turn out to be a universal helpdesk. Love will never be lost on me, is a favorite lyric of mine. Lets combine our love and try to help.
Don't do it for me, do it for Kyron.
