Where is the education on making love? I mean literally and metaphorically...
Most children, nowadays, gain all their knowledge of sex through watching porn, from as young as 10 years old. All you have to do is Google "naked" and look and see what comes up! 92% of the songs on the radio are all to do with SEX! Kids no longer play on the streets, they play twerk videos... or who-can-shoot-each-other-in-the-head-the-fastest video games.
Kids are being taught what the government wants them to be taught, not what they need to be taught. They're being taught life lessons like “Don’t get that degree… it doesn't pay well enough” or "start a career that pays well so that you can have all the money in the world to buy all the things you want".
But what do we want?
Do we really want a 20 bedroom house, with three bathrooms, and a car that can reach 100 mph in 6 seconds? Or is that just clever advertising leading us to believe that this is what we want?
Depression is at an all-time high, with 1 in 5 people, in the UK, suffering from it. Why is this? That's 20% (nearly 13 million Brits!) It's because our culture is that of, we must have and possess more and more in order to be significant and looked up to by others. People buy what they can't afford just so that they can keep up with the Joneses.
These days, people rarely talk with one another. I mean just talk. No agenda. Just talking. Why is that? When was the last time you picked up the phone to talk to someone about their day and their lives? When was the last time you stopped and spoke to that checkout girl or guy, rather than just saying…
We're all in such a rush to get from A to B that we are missing life itself. Life is passing us by as we are all getting so caught up in the things we HAVE to do, as opposed to the things we WANT to do. We've all become Human Doings or Human-lingering-in-the-pasts… not HUMAN BEINGS…
People in our culture strive for 15 seconds of fame, rather than a lifetime of meaning and purpose. When did doing the popular thing become more important than doing the right thing? Ratings, on the TV, are more important than the truth itself. And it's no wonder... The average person watches 5 hours of TV…
As much as we don't like to think it, or maybe we all just ignore it, race is still an issue... and so is religion. "Your GOD is fake and doesn't exist!" Mine is "ALL LOVING" ... if you disagree... "I'LL KILL YOU", or even worse, argue and preach you to death.
Technology was supposed to make our lives easier and give us everything we could ever want... but in actuality, it's stolen everything we really need... We've forgotten what it means to talk to people, face to face. Not via a 3 second snap chat, not via a 6 second vine. REAL face to face communication in the outside world! What’s the rush?! Where is everyone going, to the point where they can’t stop for 1 second and say…
Technology has turned us into a nano-second culture where if an action isn’t performed in less than 1 second, it’s no good… or it’s forgotten about, within 3 seconds.
Pride is at an all-time high… with everyone taking “selfie’s” 6 times a day. Because, if the rest of the world doesn’t know what my face looks like in Subway, I think I might have a breakdown.
Humility is at an all-time low! We are now the most important people in the world, or rather “I” am the most important person in the world.
“If it doesn’t suit me and my needs, then it is not valid”.
“Your opinion doesn’t matter because I am right about everything and I know everything!”
The only reason we do good things, or good deeds, is if there is a decent enough profit margin, to make it worth our while.
The videos of the misfortunes of others go viral within seconds. We share them with our friends on-line to point and laugh at. In the history of the world, it has never been so easy to bully someone, in such a vastly public way, behind the curtain of the internet.
Companies invest millions of dollars in hiring people to make little girls feel like they need to wear make-up, in order to be perceived as being beautiful, permanently lowering their self-esteem, because no matter what they do, they will never meet the ridiculous standards of beauty, that the media portray to us. Beauty can only come from within, and no amount of makeup will ever really make you beautiful if, at your core, you’re a 1st class bitch.
From my view, all women are beautiful, no matter how they look! Woman can create new human beings! Women can do so much! And looks, has nothing to do with it. What you perceive as beautiful, may be “ugly” to your “neighbour”.
SO, what can we do in the face of all of this?
We can LOVE!
Not that fake love crap you see in movies…
Let’s wake up and start the day loving each other, and caring about each other, like everyone is our brothers and sisters.
How about we show each other more acts of random kindness? ‘Cause you know what? IT’S CONTAGEOUS! We can pay it forward, and for once, not expect something in return.
Drop those grudges we hold against our fathers, and sisters, and mothers. In 300 years, is it really going to matter?
We can stop trying to change others and start changing ourselves! CHANGE OUR HEARTS!
Instead of exhibiting these emotions: ANGER, HATRED & CRUELTY
Let’s replace them with these emotions: Sympathy, Compassion, and Kindness
LOVE is the most powerful weapon on the face of the earth!
We can each make small changes, in ourselves and our lives, to make the world a more loving place, filled with thoughts and acts of kindness and positivity.
So, yes… the world is coming to an end but…
The path towards a new beginning starts…
