Warning…Conscious Pricking!

2 Jul

“The power of willful ignorance cannot be overstated.”

As soon as I heard these words spoken, it was as if I got hit by a two by four. Clarity was undeniable.

Willful ignorance is damaging and empowers the mean!

It explains and defines so much in our society (Wars, Islamic Extremists. Bullies, Environmental Damage, Child-Abuse, Elderly-Abuse, Bigotry, Guns, Political-Abuse, Angry-People, etc…)

We all go about our day in a state of pretending with more excuses than Jiffy has peanut butter…

…it is none of our business

…it doesn’t involve me

…I don’t have time

…I can’t make a difference

…It doesn’t matter

…I hate to make waves

…I don’t want to get involved

How many times have you heard these songs play in your head? Does the melody comfort you?

It takes a tremendous amount of inner strength to stop numbing ourselves into willful ignorance.

Maybe for just one day… Just One Day……

 

We can CHANGE…

We can step outside our comfort zone and be BRAVE…

…To willful acts of strength in KINDNESS (to speak up, to take action) and do the right thing!

…To make a positive difference in someone’s life!

Today, you decide!
