It Is Time to Change the World

It is time to change the world.

The scientists have many answers, but the politicians and business people won’t listen, and won’t let the information be heard.

The businessmen won’t do it, because their main interest is profit, and they do not see the connection between profit and making the world a place for everyone to thrive.

The politicians won’t do it, because their interests lie only in getting re-elected, and they are tied to leaders whose only interest is power. Their love of power will destroy the world, because they do not understand that the only real power is the power of love.

Now, before you jump to the idea that love is just an airy-fairy, sentimental feeling, think again. Love as we use it now is some romantic notion, and the word has been so misused and abused that it means nothing. “Oooh! I love that green jacket!” “I love chocolate.” “Love ya!”

Real love is connection. The connection between atoms, which form molecules. The connection between mother and child. The connection between all humans. The connection between moons and planets, planets and stars. Love is the connective tissue that binds all things together, and when we ignore it, we ignore the fundamental principle that rules the Universe. When we ignore it, we do so at our own peril. Love connects us; hate divides us. But we are still all connected, despite the emotional turmoil of our times.

Everything is connected. People starving in one section of the planet means we are all going to suffer. Cutting down forests to profit the few means we destroy the lungs of the planet, which provide all of us with oxygen. Polluting our oceans means we pollute our future.

It is time to change the world. We are not meant to be a polluted, disease-ridden, oxygen- deprived species floating around on a ruined, decaying planet.

Having money will do nothing for you, if there is no food to eat, no air to breathe, and no water to drink. Having power over a destroyed world will bring you no profit or joy. Love – recognition of the connection of all living things – is the answer. I’m not a big Bible reader, but to those who revel in their money, their profit, their status, their power, and to those who support them, the question should be put to them:

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

It is time to change the world, to create answers and solutions. But they will come at a cost, and we must be willing to pay any price to make these changes. When you truly see the connection between all beings, you cannot hate, you cannot turn away when help is needed. You will want to work to correct the course humanity is on, and thus correct the course of planet Earth.

We are all from the same source – race, religion, culture, economic status – these should not divide us. They are just false constructs. We are all humans, and we should all be stewards for Planet Earth and its inhabitants. The inhabitants are us! We need to be caretakers of all of us. It’s time to change the world.

It is time to change the world. And yes, we can do it. It is a matter of standing up for what is right for all beings, and standing up for the Earth, which is our home.

Who wrote this? A human. One person among many. There is no need for one name, because people will instantly ask, “What does (s)he know? What makes him/her an authority?” The answer is that this idea is not unique to one human. Thousands, probably millions, know this. But in the onslaught of corruption in politics, finance, and various industries, their voices are not heard, and if they are heard, they are ignored. Not only humans, but almost all animals know this truth about love and connection. Among themselves they know this as surely as they know the sun brings light. This knowledge is straight-knowledge, within their cells, connected to the source of things. Humans have the ability to touch such truths, but have ignored it, in favor of power, monetary wealth and pleasures. But this is the Truth. It makes no difference if you believe it. The Truth is true.

    I’m not Biblical either, but the simplicity of the Golden Rule bubbles up for me in reading your words. And the words of the Judds’ “Love Can Build a Bridge”. The message is simple but the practice, lifelong in scope.

      Thanks, Joy. I know some people read the words “love can solve it” and think the writer/speaker is living in dreamland. But real, deep love is so powerful…

    Thank you for this Davina. I have been present at the dying and then the death of many people. I am there as families process the loss, and most spend the time comforting each other. In that sacred time, life crystalizes into the true importance of a life lived. It is love that fills the room. It is love that gives the tears. It is love the dead person gets to take with them. It is the only thing….

    • Davina says:

      Thank you, Nancy, for such a compassionate view. Your work is so imbued with love, and it spills out to all those who are in need of it. At the final hours, it is love that gives the dying and the living solace, and more, meaning for the beginning and the end of things.

    Davina, your thoughts resound in the young, like Greta Thunberg and her fellow world youth. How dare we ignore the beauties of our planet in favor of profit? How dare we cut down the trees that are our life-giving breath? How dare we pollute the ocean? As we do all this we are proverbially cutting off our noses to spite our faces!

    I’ve been studying – again – the energy centers of the etheric body and how, as we develop, the web between them burns away and we become more aware of who and what we really are. Perhaps these young, intent folk are analogous to that burning process, they are our enlighteners, if only we choose to be aware, to listen and to follow their instructions.

    • Davina says:

      I agree – it is the young people who are aware of the damage, because they will inherit it. Their outrage is actually a result of their love of truth, of integrity, of the beauty of life. I agree that this generation are like the burning process, burning away the lies, the greed and the unconsciousness that have brought us to this point. Humanity is so asleep, but those awake can see, but more, they are willing to DO something. I think the key is that we must listen, and they must listen to each other, and find the best solutions. Personality must be set aside in deference to vision and truth.

    Hi Davina —
    I’ve managed to lose your e-mail address; I hope it’s OK for me to use this. Liked your article very much! Please e-mail or call me — I need your help for a proposed memorial event for Phil.
