The choice is ours

Life can be very depressing these days. The economy is accelerating into a downward spiral towards disaster; banks continue to invest in weapon companies, causing violent wars for many and 10% returns for a few; food is becoming more and more toxic and clean water a privilege of the rich. Rainforests are being destroyed in the name of progress, politicians keep lying and diversity is dying. Greed, fear and polluted minds. Dark times.

Is there light at the end of the tunnel? Well, it depends on what direction you are looking at... Despite all bad news – we are being given a real chance to create a better system, a better life. Something truly beautiful. There is a growing revolution of local and organic food; there are factories which run on renewable energy, businessmen who invest in trees and enemies who talk about peace. We can choose ethical banking, fair trade, alternative healing and holistic schools. We could be heroes, instead of fools.

I feel that the ongoing battle between light and darkness has entered the last round. And it’s us who will decide the outcome. Will we keep sleeping or will we wake up? Will we choose to trust in our own powers and the power of the good? Will we take on the responsibility to create a better world for us and those to come? The choice is ours. The time is now.

It’s so easy to lose hope,
To say ‘I don’t care’,
To let life turn into a nightmare.
But what if we gathered together?
Joining our forces, willing to share.
Holding on tight, to love, peace and light,
To keep the faith that, as Bob said,
Everything’s gonna be alright.
To wake up and follow the sun.
Becoming ONE.
