I will say this. The world has made some tremendous strides when it comes to judgement, but we have miles to go before the world accepts everyone. We look at people every day and make negative judgements based on skin colour, height, colour of hair, piercings or clothing. Sometimes we forget to look at the person and see them for who they are rather than how they look.
I am not a person who is oblivious to racism through out the world. I am not a target for it, but it blows my mind and angers me to see that people are still getting persecuted for their skin colour. How can it be 2017 and it be still socially acceptable for people to make comments against someone's colour or religion?
I am grateful to live in the country I do. Racism is not something that is blatantly obvious, but it does happen from time to time. When it does it makes my blood boil. This happened this past week and rather than letting my anger get the best of me and give this gentleman a piece of my mind, with a few choice words, I decided to make this a positive moment and hopefully it changes the world just a little. I decided to bring this to Cosmic Positivity and hopefully all of you guys will share it.
So here are a few tips that I am working on in order to make the world a bit better. They may only make a tiny difference, but a tiny difference is better than no difference at all. Plus Rome wasn't built in a day.
- Don't let your rage get the best of you. There is no point. I struggle with this one specifically. Unfortunately you're probably just going to add fuel to the fire. You may think that this is a passive approach, but honestly losing your mind on someone is probably not going to give you the positive outcome you're hoping for.
- Send positive vibes out into the universe. You may think that good thoughts and intentions will not change the world. Maybe you're right, but what if everyone in this world sent good thoughts out into the universe. That much power can create some awesome ripples. Why should we let negativity control us? Just some food for thought.
- Burn some sage. Sage is a beautiful tool to help clear the negative energy around you. You may not be able to sage the negativity out of someone else, but you can certainly do it to yourself. Remember you can only control yourself. Don't let negativity get you down.
- Teach people to be good people. We have the world at our fingertips. We have the ability to connect to thousands and even millions of people anytime we go on social media. We have younger and even older generations that need to be shown that there is a better way. Put your POSITIVE message out there and let it be carried out. Don't think that your voice is too small. If you can be a positive role model to even one person than that is one more person than you had the day before.
Racism, judgement, bullies and negativity do not have a place in this world. Let's all stand together and set an example. We can all do our part to change the world. What have you done lately to change the world?
