Perceptions

Love this post.0

If we watch the news broadcasts regularly we may be inclined to see the world in a very negative light. It would appear there are not very many good people in the world; that there are only corrupt politicians. With a steady diet of this type of reporting indeed a negative image is formed in much of the world – of the world.

Think of the images that come to mind when thinking of places like the Middle East, Africa or parts of Asia. All of these are prejudiced by a received knowledge either through society or the media. Our perception is conditioned on this and the formation is learned not innate. There are times of course when there are incidents and these are accurate when properly reported with supporting information and a continued updated report that indicates the current reality. The problem with information reporting today is the constant need for “new” news so the older stories are not reviewed with an update. Have things remained the same? Is the war or famine over?

Just as these perceptions are learned so too hate and prejudice in general. It is up to each of us to confront these issues and to make changes. It begins with each of us. What we replace it with should be love and understanding. If we remove hate and fear we do not, should not, remain neutral but be more inclined to seek an answer before judging anything or anyone.

Love should reign in the world so long filled with rage and war. Love will triumph, but only if we let it.

The Silver Lining

Where and what is the silver lining? How do we get there and what possibly could it be? Many will wonder if there is any point after all because of what has been encountered in life up to this point. But wait…

We have work to do…

To provide the answers to these questions for people of our time we have to become beacons of truth, not just a subjective truth as so many seek, but lights for the Truth that is beyond all that the world could possibly offer. It will take a great deal of inspiration. It will mean strides in learning our faith so it can provide the understanding being sought. It will be a means of our own sanctification.

Motivation

Whatever motivates us, we need to (re)focus on so that we continue to do what is right and helpful in our world. We need the motivation so that we do not stop in the middle; we don’t give up. When we are motivated we have a better focus on the end goal. Be focussed and be motivated each day.
