Times are weird. Nationalistic and protectionism are the trending topics when it comes to governing countries. Somehow all the years of striving for one world theories, connectivity and innovation by working together is being zapped away by theories of scarcity and fear. A world that has so many resources within it's premises has a whole lot of humans claiming that within their borders what's theirs is theirs and no one can share. When you consistently implement this type of rhetoric and subsequent action, you have a world filled with violence, injustice and poverty. Poverty - whether in resources or of thinking (we like to call this a lack of love) is a big concern. Our modern times of mass transportation means that underserved, impoverished people can easily hit anyone with violence when they feel hate or jealousy in their heart. From our viewpoint, there has never been a more needed time for peacekeeping and sharing. All those concepts that your Kindergarten teacher so desperately tried instilling in you are needed more than ever.
Every human being matters. Every human being was born with a heart and a soul. Somehow as humans get older, we can choose (the power of free will) to step away from our collective soul that ties humanity together. Our hope is that we find this collectiveness again. We don't want to see more news headlines of people unjustly dying. We don't want to see political leaders living in their ego and creating noise for their own benefit. We don't want to see communities not have food to eat. None of this is needed. It was started by people and it can be stopped by people too. All you have to do is try a little bit harder to care about other people. It's time to feel other people's pain and make decisions and act on what is beneficial for all and not just yourself. It's time to create that art. It's time to create that socially conscious business that benefits society. It's time to step away from any one and any thing that is not in line with your values of collaborative and collective thinking and find those that inspire your heart and soul.
We are being asked to step it up as humans. We have reached a cusp of inhumanity and humanity will counter the history and present that is affecting us all so negatively. The great artist, Jimi Hendrix once said, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." Choose love. Choose peace. Change the course of the world. It all starts with you. What will you do today to make the world a more peaceful and loving place? #ArtistsWillChangeTheWorld
