We're surrounded by space, yet people all over the world are subjected to overcrowded conditions. There's talk of population explosions and subsequent food and water shortages. These issues are being addressed here in America, perhaps inadvertently, by alternative birth control methods fueled by the unjust incarceration of millions of young men and women, who have committed relatively minor crimes. Then there's the millions of people dying at a very young age in Asia and Africa, because of their having been subjected to the lack of child labor laws. These situations are not being discussed because we are overly complacent when it comes to the well-being of others. After all, they don't seem to affect us, and they do offset the alleged problem of not enough room.
The truth of the matter is that there's plenty of room on this planet for all of us, and perhaps billions more. I've travelled for miles and miles, right here in California, and seen nothing but land. The same holds true for other parts of this country, and Europe and Africa as well. The word is that a lot of this land is uninhabitable and incapable of producing crops, but with all the available technology, and brilliant minds, I cannot believe that there's no means for housing and food production all over the world.
The trouble is that there's not enough of us cultivating our hearts. We are so focused on the so-called problems of our past, and the preconceived difficulties of our future, that we lose track of the fact that we're still here and thereby have an opportunity to make things work to the benefit of others. I'm so grateful to those who have already unlocked their hearts, and are attempting through their artistic and creative talents, to make us aware that there are unlimited possibilities available to each of us, to make life better for us all.
‘Each one teach one’ as the saying goes, and if we go through life with that intent we must be ever mindful that our efforts are not in vain. Of course it gets rough sometimes, and we occasionally think that we are not doing enough. Don't get discouraged. cause It always gets greater later. And whether you see it or not, please believe that if LOVE is your intent in the things that you do, simply because of having heard, read, or actually been in your presence, someone else's life has been enhanced.
And please, please, please…never forget that no matter how crowded it may seem to be, just be still for one moment, and you'll be able to see that because there's space in your heart for one more, collectively this vision will somewhere somehow…. make room for one more…all over the globe.
