A friend wrote to me the other day and simply asked, “Are we doomed?”
I asked him to elaborate on what he was asking and he replied, “It just seems hopeless right now. The world doesn’t seem to be moving in a positive direction. Are we going to blow ourselves up or ruin the planet beyond repair?”
The state of our planet is obviously of great concern to us as humans since this is where we live, so it’s natural to wonder if the planet will still be here, supporting life, in the next few decades.
It’s very easy to succumb to negative thoughts, especially when the media mostly reports on what’s going wrong on the planet. You’ve got your climate crises and natural disasters. You’ve got your politicians battling each other for control. The terrorists are doing their terror things. The bees are dying. People are sick, cancer still kills people, and the war on drugs has been a losing battle.
It’s seemingly doom and gloom everywhere you look.
I don’t believe we are doomed. Here’s why.
The majority of people in the world are kind, caring, compassionate humans who desire to live in harmony with each other. Most people just want to get through their work day, spend quality time with family, and have fun.
Kindness shapes the world every day, in small ways, in large ways, in ways unseen, and in ways people can see globally.
But, yes, there are a small number of people who want to destroy the planet. None of them have succeeded as yet. There are good people standing in their way.
Sure they might take a piece out of us sometimes, but that’s when humans come together to rebuild and show compassion to their fellow man.
Damage is repaired and we are knitted back together, stronger than before.
But what if someone does succeed in destroying the world?
Then all of our souls go back to the ether and we start again, either on another planet, another plane, or we find some other way to experience physicality.
You cannot control the actions of the outliers. There will always be those people who set an agenda that is not healthy for the majority of mankind. But it hasn’t happened yet, and I believe that the vibration of humanity as a whole will not allow it to manifest.
We must not focus on the negative, or succumb to fearful thinking. Put into the world more of what you want to see in the world. Put more joy, compassion, love and gratitude in the world and enjoy the beauty that exists around you.
See the bloom, not the gloom.
