As I present to audiences across the world, in the UK, in Europe, in the US and currently in Malaysia, I notice variety, diversity, differences and similarities, and always magical happenings. Yet today I find myself asking “how, in our challenged world, do we each make the best choices using reasonable and unbiased observation?” To help us in uncertainty, let’s use a good deal of common-sense, simplicity and love-based principles to guide us.
The world is simultaneously horrified, fascinated, thrilled, aghast, scared and amazed by choices made; Trump, Brexit, women marching enmasse, refugees fleeing and endless wars raging- and always the human rights of potentially marginalized minority groups high on everyone’s agenda. And yet so much more is occurring at an unconscious and far reaching depth that is both good and cleansing of our old stuck ways. And it’s not all bad as so many think and fear. Of course, many don’t like uncertainty. IF we believe everything happens for a reason and nothing happens without connection to everything (as I do) then ‘hope springs eternal’ and we might accept that today ‘uncertainty is the root of all growth and possibilities’.
Change is always the current that flows and takes us forward. Time to be, to do, to think, to feel, to create differently and with compassion and understanding. The key to our future is, I believe, reasonable conversations, magical ones in deed. In these such conversations, we share our views without blame nor calling people undesirable names. We recognize that we may be diametrically opposed in our views but seek common ground that is inclusive of all needs and full of common sense as to which degree all needs can be met. Conversation, compassion and an intentional perseverance and wish to serve is essential. This forms a Magical Conversation
By listening to hear rather than knee jerk reactions to respond, we can more easily account for the many layers of difference – culture, generation, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and disability – to embrace a connected world rather than feeling caught up in every personal issue. Listen with smiles and compassion. We need to look beyond the ‘news reports’ and the media hype and where uncertain of opinion makers, be your own wisdom and share with care!
Men and women share this planet and the responsibility lies with us all. Let’s communicate from our heartfelt choices and common-sense heads, wise men and women alike, in true magical conversation style and allow the future to unfold without anger. Time to co-create this love-based, healthy happy world one day at a time….join me and my husband Jim and help our legacy to become a reality as we desire to “leave the world a better place for having been here”!
