Too many people today are not living their dreams because they are living their fears.
The twenty-four hour news cycle is continuously filling our living rooms with negative news stories, often times blown up out of proportion and filled with half truths.
As a result, people are continuously living in fear of what may happen instead of accomplishing something positive in their lives.
People are in constant fear of what may or may not happen.
In many instances, the same kind of events we are see occurring around the world have been happening for hundreds of years. The only difference is, we hear about them instantly instead of as in the past, when we often never were informed of them because of the distances involved.
Years ago, if we lived on the east coast of the United States, we never heard about what was going on in California, unless it was a total disaster such as an earthquake, and then it may have been days before the news reached us.
Today, the news reaches us instantly and the main stream media does it’s best to politicize it. It is to their advantage to do this because it increases their ratings and sells advertising.
We need to start living our lives again, the politicians will fight it out and eventually devour themselves and those around them. In reality, besides writing our congressman, who may or may not even listen to us, the only way to effect change in our country is to make our voices heard at the ballot box.
We need to once in start living our dreams, in America, we are in control of our lives and our destiny, unlike most other places in the world.
We have lost the spiritual values that were instilled in our country at the beginning.
Study what the founders and heroes of the American Revolution faced. many times they faced death or serious injury, but they survived and as a result, created the greatest country the world has ever know.
Many times the only positive in their lives was their faith.
By controlling our destiny and life, we can create the kind of reality we all strive for.
By being responsible for our own life, being independent and as self sufficient as we can, not relying on government to run our life, we will create the type of country our founders had in mind.
We do create our future, and when we do, the negativity and distention in life has no one to latch onto and will disappear into the sunset.
Once we accomplish that, anything is possible.
Let us go forth, have faith in something larger than ourselves, by accomplishing this small feat, we can accomplish much.
What do you think?
By learning and remembering the Wisdom of Our Ancestors, we can accomplish much.
