I am an Activist
I am convinced that almost all human beings are good human beings. Deep within all of us, our core-call it energy, consciousness, soul, atma or being-is an uncontaminated positive pure entity. If that be so, shouldn’t we be experiencing our living environments, our societies and our world as positive, joyful and collaborative communities?
You will agree that this is far from the truth today. As much as individually most of us have this conviction that we are good human beings collectively our experience of the world seems to be one filled with doubts ,lack of trust, envy, hate and conflicts. This indeed is a sad state that we all experience.
When I reflect deeply I recognize that almost all of us are “concerned” about the things going wrong in the world. About exploitation of nature, about poverty, discrimination, about the arms race, diverse political ideologies, about terrorism, about hunger….
Unfortunately, concern is an idea in the mind, which does not contribute the “action” required to overcome these challenges. True caring is when we choose to go beyond concern and care enough to act to do something to initiate a process of some kind or the other. It is in this action, that one becomes an activist for positive change and transformation.
Whenever I am concerned I act. I try to do something about it. You too can.
I choose to act in matters related to positive social transformation, a cleaner socio political system, building a more collaborative and positive world, living principle centered life as individuals and society, evolving education into wholesome man-making, giving balance and due attention to all elements and creations of nature-to live in a better universe.
Your action or initiative could be by sharing skills, time, money, resources, connections, technology, relationships or whatever one possesses or can mobilize and deploy. Even the smallest act of doing will be better than the biggest thought of being concerned.
The world requires you today. To care. To do. To act.
Welcome to the world of being an activist.
