What the World Needs Now…

I’m hardly the first to say, or sing, or lecture, or prophesy (I’m only claiming to be saying it, it’s been repeated so often)… It’s been said so many ways, in so many languages, it’s enough to make your head spin if you let it!
Life, is about one thing, and one Thing only!! Love.

That’s it. It’s not hard, nor rocket science, it’s what makes it, it’s what helps it to grow, and it’s how/why we continue to exist! No Living thing survives without Love (That includes the Living Planet we occupy!) We as Human Beings, whether we’re looking from the bottom, up, or the top, down, are only special in that we think we are the only things capable of cognitive thought.
I propose we are the only ones complaining about it! Take a Good look around you!
If you are not seeing a wondrous view, of the Living organism that is the Glory of Life on this planet we cohabitate (poetic license), then you are missing the point of what it’s all about.
I’m not saying you “have” to be in the middle of a forest to see It, I’m saying we are failing to see it in all the ways It inhabits the world around us! Life is everywhere, there for us to admire, enjoy, stand in awe of for Its complexity and simultaneous simplistic pulchritude! What a wonder, what a joy to experience!!

Who knows the name of Helen KELLER‘s teacher? What a wonderful woman! Such Blesséd Insight/Inspiration! Can you imagine being able to care so much, that you gave your Life for the betterment of an other? That’s Love.
Putting someone else’s wants and needs before your own. That’s it! It isn’t hard (though at times, it’ll hurt!), It isn’t complicated, there it is in a nutshell. Why then, do we continue to over-complicate matters, make excuses about why we “…can’t do it”, and avoid discussing it directly?
…Maybe ’cause we’re afraid to do it!? Likely. It involves risk; a vulnerability, that few are honestly willing to admit to, or follow through with. And so then, we can pretend it isn’t there. Those feelings, those emotions, that we define as “being Human”, in today’s world is little more than myth.
Is there any wonder why teenage suicides (and suicide in general) are so much on the incline, and higher than ever before in our known history!? C’mmon , people!! Isn’t it obvious?? Our teenage years are some of the most emotionally charged throughout our Lives, because for the first time we are beginning to experience those emotions on a personal level. All those words are starting to paint a rainbow upon our hearts, and they make sense on a Spiritual level as well as Functional and Philosophical! We are then beginning to make sense of a world that we were at once dumb to, but now understand!

…And we’re pretending these things “…don’t exist. They’re just excuses for weakness!” And too, why bother expressing them if there isn’t an emoji for it?
We’re losing not only our comprehension of God/dess’s Greatest Gift unto us all, we are totally forsaking it, and saying it is our own to take away! Did you Make you? Is it then yours, to take away? Food for thought…
However, it’s difficult to say (for teenagers these days, in particular) that you are “wrong” to do so (taking your own Life), when you do not have a real understanding of what a Glorious Gift, It is! That guilt falls to the Parents who aren’t providing their Children with a viable example of what Love is! …Among other things, unconditional! We’ve long since (as a society) left behind the days of when Family mattered most, values and morals included! We’ve forgotten the Face of our Fathers and Mothers.

Love. Sweet Love! That, is what the World needs now! That is what Life, needs now! That, is what’s missing from our Lives, that is making us miserable. No Living thing on Earth, is an Island. We ALL need Love! Each, and every trillion(s) of us.

I am a Writer and Poet, Construction Worker with a Union, would be Organic Farmer, Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, and a few others. I would like to add a few more; Husband, father, .... the list will grow! I am currently working on personal growth, publishing my first book, becoming a Journeyman in the Carpenters Union, learning more of Gardening and Green things, and embracing Life as it comes! Life and Love are only as easy as we allow them to be, but are ever present, when we are ready to embrace them! Time is a tricky, devious thing, and Life is never easy. Nor should it be, the challenge is how we grow! While ever developing mentally and Spiritually over the last decade, The "obstacles to progress" are morphing into challenges to be met, and are ever changing. Such is the amazing Wonder that is Life, as we Learn, as we Grow! Too much structure is at the very heart of institutionalization, and not enough is the path to chaos. Learning that balance I believe is a Life-long challenge. One of many, as balance(s) is(are) ever changing too! All the while (and, as we ALL are...), I am, have been, and continue to be, so very Blessed!! Divine Providence, the "Finger of God", or even a reference to "Footprints"; all and more apply! The Energy of Life is all around us! Creating, Energizing, Healing, Invigorating! Life feeds the Energy of Life! Call It/Them how/by/what you will... Their presence and influence in and upon my Life has been amazing, and I could not, and would not, be who or where I am (NONE of us would/could be), without Them! Divine Providence, Creators/Masters of the multi-verse, the Spark of Life, the Energy that Nourishes, Higher Power, whatever/however you so choose to acknowledge our own smallness in the Universe! Without Their Love, Their Guidance, we are lost. We are sick, we are incomplete, when we lack the Faith to Heal and be Whole! I am growing, and Healing, and Learning, and am greatly in need thereof. But I AM growing, and Healing, and Learning! And so the Light "at the end of the tunnel" Shines ever bright! And Day by Day, I struggle, to be better than I was the day before, and to be prepared to be even better tomorrow! Hallelujah! Aloha! Namaste! As-Salàmu Àlaykum! Peace!
