World Change – Is There Hope for Humanity’s Future?

by: Mashubi Rochell

Have you noticed a lot of changes happening around you, some of them which seem to be not very good ones? With the major changes in weather patterns and the accelerated pace of world events, most people nowadays are aware that something is going on! The topic of world change is on the minds and in the hearts of many people who are witnessing what is happening and not sure how to respond in a positive way. World events appear to be spiraling towards more negativity and violence, and many beautiful and kind hearted souls who hope to change the world with positive actions are frustrated by the difficulties they encounter, or by the apparent lack of effect of their good works.

To understand the process of world change from the spiritual perspective, it is necessary to understand the current times we live in. Never before have human beings been more interconnected. The acceleration pace of communications technology has created what is truly a global community, where we are becoming increasingly aware of all of humanity. The spiritual teaching that we are all One is rapidly manifesting on the Earth, as the reality of our interdependence and interconnectedness reveals itself daily, and will reveal itself even more so in the times to come.

The extreme imbalances in our world are being revealed, and it is no longer possible for us to shut out the reality of the needs of the human family of which we are all a part. World change is greatly needed in a world where most people lack basic resources for survival, and where a relatively small number of people have an overabundance of resources.

As spiritual transformation on the Earth progresses, it will become apparent to more and more people that these imbalances, where one part of our human family suffers at the expense of another, are actually detrimental to everyone. This awakening of planetary consciousness has not yet happened, but it will. The present time of world change has been prophesied in many different cultures and religions, and each of us who are here today is an important and essential part of this evolution in human consciousness.

World change is happening at an ever accelerating rate, and each individual who opens their heart to God’s love and embraces the spiritual calling to awaken, adds their light and love and consciousness to the planetary collective consciousness. It is through many individuals awakening that world change will manifest and transform the current global situation, bringing into manifestation a new era for the family of humankind.

The Perfect Way To Watch Your Child Grow

by: Sophia Ton

Many people ponder the perfect way to raise a child. Here are some thoughts to consider and contemplate:

“It takes a village to raise a child.” – African proverb

“There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One is roots; the other, wings.” – Hodding Carter

“Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.” – Anne Frank

“Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.” – Rabbinical saying

“The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant — and let the air out of the tires.” – Dorothy Parker

“You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.” – John J. Plomp

“I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.” – Harry S Truman

“If you as parents cut corners, your children will too. If you lie, they will too. If you spend all your money on yourselves and tithe no portion of it for charities, colleges, churches, synagogues, and civic causes, your children won’t either. And if parents snicker at racial and gender jokes, another generation will pass on the poison adults still have not had the courage to snuff out.” – Marian Wright Edelman

“No matter how old a mother is, she watches her middle-aged children for signs of improvement.” – Florida Scott-Maxwell

“Too often we give our children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.” – Roger Lewin

“Becoming responsible adults is no longer a matter of whether children hang up there pajamas or put dirty towels in the hamper, but whether they care about themselves and others — and whether they see everyday chores as related to how we treat this planet.” – Eda LeShan

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

There is no perfect way to raise your child. Just provide the support and love they need to grow and prosper.
