You don’t need to have money to change something. You don’t need to be single and without kids to become free. These are the most complaints I heard when people tell me, they would love to change something, but they can’t. For me it’s easy. Because I am young, independent and kids-free. That might truly help, but is not an answer and result just to except and to do nothing.
If you really really want. And when you are ready. YOU CAN DO IT!
When we all do all small actions every day, we can change a lot as a union. Even scientists and economists realize that the situation in which we humans are right now, as a society, has come to a point where we need to change something.
We destroy our planet by industrial and economical contaminations, we listen and believe all the negative headlines and news in the media, politics are made by the big economic player and people are consciously tried to keep them busy. Busy from awakening, from seeing who we really are. For the big “economic gods” ( I call them gods because they are going to win more and more power on this earth and this is exactly what they want) we are just consumer or buyer. We have to earn more money to buy more stuff.
Is that what you are? Is that want you to want to be?
For me, the answer is definitely NO!
We can change if we want. We can do little steps each day, to become more conscious about our environment, about what we eat, what we buy, how we act and what we should believe and what not.
So here are just a few options listed, what you can do to get out of the system and even help to create this world to a big community that is connected again with our mother earth and all its beings:
1. Change food and nutrition
Stop eating what the media is telling you what’s good for you. Research where it comes from, explore what’s good for you.
Diet is not a diet to lose weight. It’s the choice to keep out things that are not good for us.
Some foods like refined sugar and wheat make not just fat, it has also almost no good nutrition inside and makes us addictive. You are just eating what people want that you eat. But would you eat is also when you were won up in another society or another age? Without media?
2. Try to spend and live with less money.
Money makes addictive. For the big economic gods. You are addicted to the system. The more you are able to live without it, the easier it will become for you to step out the system, because you are independent. But this means to let go of all your arrangements. If you need gadgets or tools, try to rent them or buy them used. There is already so much stuff on this planet. We live in a consumer world, in abundance. This means we are out of balance and should deal with the things that we already have. It should also protect us from all the trash we are producing. How can Mother Earth deal with all that trash? It’s already too much. It will affect us in a longterm way. We have all the contaminations already in our waters, foods, and air, that we need to survive. Do we want to kill ourselves?
3. Change your mind.
Meditate, practice Yoga or any other practice to reduce your full mind and thoughts to connect with your spirit and soul. It will automatically tell you why your here and where to go.
But you need to take it seriously and practice regularly to get out of the hamster wheel and see the difference of being just a small puppet in the theatre play or an individual that is connected to a bigger story – a whole society of beings that can live in peace and harmony. It’s still a lot of work to get there, but I see already a lot of positive developments in the last decades, and are optimistic can drive us to big actions. So let’s do it! 🙂
4. Exercise at least 30 minutes per day outside in nature
If possible outside in nature. Especially when you live in a city and spend most of your time on concrete walls. It helps you to free your mind, to keep your body active and strong and helps to build and spread serotonin in your body. That makes you happy and alive and improves your way of positive thinking, which is necessary to actively change something.
5. Do something good every day
Do something good for a person, organization or environment without excepting anything else in return. Rewarding will come later.
All good comes back. We are part of an equal system of interactions. In the Vedic, old Indian, philosophy its called “Karma”, the Andean indigenous people in Peru call it “Ayni”. You can spend money to an aid organization, volunteer for a social project, help a good friend or family member or even a person you don’t know but need the help. Or at least give somewhere a smile, who had a bad day. You will see after a while the return is tremendous and priceless.
By practicing awareness, consciousness, connection to your own true being, mother earth, and the spirit will help you to get out of a game which is already rigged.
