I realised that I can't do it on my own.
I realised that it has to be a team effort. Where all the people on the planet join together as one big community and work together for the good of the whole rather than the individual or for financial gain.
This disillusioned me a bit (to say the least!) because I know that so many people are just looking after themselves. Financial and material wealth is all most people think about in order to survive..
Others think about keeping up with the neighbours and need 5 TVs and 4 cars.
I know that some people are blogging, writing books, walking, swimming or cycling (and many other things) to save the world. I first wanted to save the world when I was 8.
The weight of that task and responsibility has weighed me down ever since because I hadn't got a clue how to do it!
It wasn't until recently that I realised that I need to learn to trust life. To be positive about the journey that the human race is taking on this planet.
Where there is destruction, a kind of reparation usually follows. However sometimes it doesn't and it leaves us blocked in a destructive cycle.
Trusting life to unblock itself and not expecting so much from myself and the human race and accepting what "will be will be" is more real than expecting us all to work together in the harmony of one big team in my estimation.
Especially when we look around at all the different beliefs and cultures there are here on earth. Is it possible to believe we can all stop building on our beautiful green land or producing plastic bags that pollute the environment.
We can only do our best to look after this beautiful planet and trust that others will do the same. Are we arrogant to think that we can save the planet? Why not go with the flow instead?
What do you think? Should we be saving the earth from ourselves or trusting that after destruction there will be a new beginning?
