We Need To Wake Up – Now!

GrowthFrom time to time a song makes its way onto the airwaves and sparks the imagination of a generation. “What the world needs now is love” (1971)3, viagra 100mg written by Hal David and performed by Jackie De Shannon, captured the imagination and inspired millions to dream of a world free of war, hunger and injustice. The song gave hope when all seemed hopeless. Forty some years later, the message in this song is as relevant as ever. There are still wars being raged around the world, more hunger, more greed, more deceit, and less love than ever before.

It’s time for a reawakening of individual hearts, a personal call to action for peace, justice for all humanity, an end to war, greed, hunger, terrorism and a reversal of the damage that is being done to the environment. We each need to become a lightning rod for action, to fuel the outrage and disgust in our souls, and propel ourselves to positive action. There is no need to wait for the answers; they are already within and love is the guide. It’s time, to become visionaries, to blaze new trails.

Imagine if there was one such visionary on each continent, in each country, in each city, in every town, village, and in our own homes. We only need to look in the mirror to see that visionaries. Let’s call on our own leadership capabilities, draw on the wisdom of our elders and encourage the imaginative minds of our youth. We are all leaders, capable of renewing the collective spirit of humanity. When we take the bold step to live with love and leadership, we become those visionaries. And when we re-fuel our passions with a hunger that’s never been felt before, we effect positive change.

Change will only happen if we each do our small part. Like Anita Roddick said: “If you think you’re too small to make a difference, you’ve never been to bed with a mosquito.” Call on your role models to inspire and remind you that life is a journey of the heart and limited only by your imagination. What love, sweet love is needed in your part of the world? Ask yourself what one small step can you take today to make a difference? Then see how living from a base of love feeds the soul and makes a real difference in your life and in the lives of others.
