It is up to us to change the negative rhetoric and trajectory that has us on a frightening path. And how do we do it? By slowly changing the mindsets of our children who will be our future leaders. It will be their world one day and we can start by altering world viewpoints through them.
There are no quick fixes for decades or even centuries of wrong thinking but as purifying rusty water in a tainted glass, it can happen one drop at a time. We can add clean, healthy, soul-lifting thoughts one at a time and over time, the contents will look a lot different.
As those piercing drops clear the waters, we know that there will be drips at the bottom of the bucket. Yet, if we keep mending the holes and continually pour positive thoughts armored with virtuous deeds, the souls of our children will evolve as they become more altruistic and balanced adults.
They will be able to rationalize and make good, useful, and sound decisions. They will be able to push the ‘pause’ button when their guts tell them that something is not right. They will be able to think things through and follow the elders’ advice and sleep on it before moving forward.
Then, with each new dawn, our future leaders will know the best paths to take which will benefit all people. They will have confidence in themselves and know their own values and worth. Then, it will be quite easy for them to extend a helping hand to others in the strong spirit of agape love!
