SOUNDS OF SILENCE

And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth ..Revelations 21

"When I was a young man,

I wanted to change the world.
I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town.

I couldn’t change the town, so I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I know the only thing I can change is myself.

And suddenly I realize that if long ago,

if I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family.
My family and I could have made an impact on our town.

Their impact could have changed the nation and the whole nation could indeed have changed the world."

i think this realization is still vital for this time almost 1000 years later.

let us stop complaining about what is wrong and trying to break down the system that is.

let us instead change what we can, ourselves, and support the systems that are good instead.

if you take a look around you will see that the solutions are allready there.

people all over the world start to establish self sustaining and independant systems and

communities. even new currencies and trading systems are developed.

so stop reacting and start creating (;

when there is a will to go, the way shows itself....

and when there is no way, make a way yourself.

Thank you James:)

When I was a young girl I wanted to be loved,it was natural for me to give love,I tried giving love to my parents in order to receive love,but they were too busy chasing their dreams,

when I was a young lady I wanted to be loved ,I tried to give my husband love in order to receive love,but he was too busy chasing his demons,

when I was a young mother I wanted to be loved,I received love, but I was too busy trying to survive on my own with my 2 children to receive love,

Now I am an old lady still trying to get love,my grandchildren give me love, but I am too busy chasing my demons!

Time to stop trying to look for love and love myself!

Dear James Bloom,

What a beautiful and true statement.  How wonderful it will be when the young ones among us have that wisdom - before they even start to get "old!"  Thank you for sharing this wisdom.

May The Great Spirit gift you with many blessings, and may you always have the wisdom to recognize them.  Namaste!


With Love & Light, K. P. Kelly
