Today, I wish….


ImageToday, I wish to write about something that is really close to my heart, Our Children! 
Child neglect and abuse is a horrible, senseless act that just has to stop.  Our children ARE our future.  If we ever expect any kind of real change to occur for our world, then we must start by truly loving our children.  Be attentive to them.  Really listen to them.  Make absolutely certain that they KNOW beyond all doubts that you love them and would move heaven and earth for them if you could.
Beyond the obvious child abuse that we are all aware of, neglect is ever bit as harmful or fatal to a child. 
I know that as adults we get caught up in our day to day lives. I know that mistakes happen.  For this, I  truly do feel for these people who make these kinds of mistakes, but it’s not about them.  Not when the child’s life is put in jeopardy over a mistake that should have never been.
I don’t aim to judge anyone.  I know I would be devastated if anything like that were to ever happen to me. However, like I said, it’s not about me, or whomever made the mistake, it’s about that child, who had no other choice but to trust that they were being taken care of.
The fact is, as parents, teachers or guardians of any kind, when you have a child in your care, that child should ALWAYS be first and foremost in your mind, in everything you do.
I have read stories of children being left in vehicles in the dead heat of summer, being left on top of the car strapped in carseats. I have even read stories of children falling out of moving vehicles because the parent or guardian failed to make sure they were strapped in a seat belt and the child safety on the doors were locked.
Though these were mere accidents and obviously not intentional, our actions whether intentional or not, do have consequences.
This is one of the reasons I believe its vitally important for us to begin, NOW to live our lives consciously.  We simply must put aside our petty differences and begin focusing on our own lives.  We must begin to be conscious of our every action, word, thought, and feeling. When we do, these mere accidents that turn out to be life threatening will begin to fade out, the deliberate actions we do to harm others will fade out.  We won’t have time to intentionally hurt others if we are focusing on our own selves.
We simply must teach our children the value of truth, and true love and compassion for others.  We must teach them that we are all connected through our Creator and as such, we only treat others in the same manner that we expect to be treated ourselves. The Golden Rule- Do unto to others as you would have them do unto you.
Until these things are learned and practiced, we will never see anything change in this world that will amount to anything.  It all begins with our children and it will all end with our children and our children’s children. It’s a devastating cycle that we simply must jump out of and find a new current of energy to swim through. We don’t have to continue swimming against the currents, simply jump currents to one better suited to our true desires, then flow peacefully amongst that current.  No fighting, no despair.  When you fight against the currents, you are bound to lose the battle everytime. Only once in a blue moon will you survive that current.  But when you do, you learn not to fight against it anymore, to simply choose a different route and avoid it altogether.
Please for the sake of our children.  Above all teach them Love, Compassion, Honesty and Integrity. For the sake of our children, Practive Living Consciously and teach that to your children.  Only then, will you begin to truly see change in this world!
Thank you for listening
May you live consciously in love and peace,
Michelle
