Within the world right now, we are going through a serious crisis. There is a HUGE lack of respect for anyone. Sons and daughters disrespecting their parents and siblings. Parents disrespecting their children. Politicians disrespecting their constituents. Countries disrespecting other contries.
At the center of the turmoil in the world, lies something very important: the heart. See what people often don’t consider, is that offenses and problems stem from the heart. The heart provides us understanding and direction. Families will not do something unless their hearts are in it. Politicians seek power, prestige and money, because their hearts are in it. So the question is, where do place our hearts? Do we seek understanding? Then listen to your heart. Do we seek forgiveness? Then listen to your heart.
Turn off the TV. Yes, I said it. Turn it off. Let me tell you why: it distracts. The TV tells you to change your heart and seek after material things. Placing your heart in something else. Do you really want other people to guide and direct you? Do you really want other people to control you? Then give them your heart. Do you really want the world to tell you that the most important thing in your life should be sex and cheetohs? Seriously. You have dreams. You have desires and passions. They are dulled by you giving your heart away. By your refusing to understand and feel. When we dull our senses, we dull our understanding and we allow others to control us. It is time to wake up and understand. It is time to wake up and feel again. Open your hearts. Feel and live.
