“The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.” – Audrey Hepburn
I wanted to piggyback on a statement that I made on a earlier post, “Life Has No Meaning.”
As I still stand by my statement that events in life have no inherent meaning, I never said that events don’t matter to you.
If it matters into your life experience than I am sure that it is of importance to you, otherwise it wouldn’t matter. Now, what matters to you may not matter to me and vice versa.
Matter matters to each of us according to our beliefs, values, preferences and so on.
When something matters (materializes) into your life experience than it would be safe to say that it serves a purpose in your life, or else it wouldn’t matter (materialize).
Direct VS Indirect Materialization
Not everything that materializes in your life is your responsibility.
Since all of humanity is having a perceived separate but whole collective experience, we are not solely responsible for everything that happens outside of ourselves.
When a child is starving in a third world country, or your own country for that matter, it is not your materialization.
When an animal is being mistreated, neglected and abused, it is not your materialization.
But your hands are not tied to do something about it are they?
What humans tend to do is create laws to prevent such crimes from ever occurring ever.
Human laws are not laws because they are not absolute in their creation.
If you j-walk across the street it is unlawful, but if a policeman doesn’t see you, there is no real consequence.
Therefore they are rules that can be enforced, but not absolutely.
An example of a Universal law would be gravity. If we jump off a building, we fall to the ground.
Unless we are Mary Poppins of course.
Another example of a Universal Law is the law of attraction.
We attract to us exactly what is a match to our vibrational being.
Let’s look at world hunger.
I can tell you as I write these words that there is more than enough food to go around and feed everyone on the planet.
Seeds for planting are relatively cheap and once the ground has been tilled and fertilized there isn’t much work needed after that for the seed to germinate into edible food.
So what’s stopping us from feeding the hungry?
Nothing is stopping us except man-made rules and regulations that prevent people from getting access to food.
Do you realize how much food restaurants throw away at the end of every night?
Most charities are not in it to help people
I am not a big fan of sending money to charities even though I did send money every month for a year to Native American Charities back in 2003.
My problem with most charities are that they are money driven.
They solicit donations in the form of money, you send it, and God only knows how much if any of that money actually goes to help the people or cause it was intended for.
There has been major speculation lately if all the money that was sent to Haiti for relief was actually received by the Haitians.
The same could be said about other Countries that have experienced hardships.
Charities have salaries to pay, solicitation quotas, personal expense accounts, insurance premiums and so on.
From what I can distinguish about charities, they are another form of business.
In the end, they are bottom line profit based systems that someone created to give themselves a job.
I am not saying that all charities behave this way though.
I am just asking is there an alternative way to help others out without a large percentage of the money being parasitied away before it goes to helping those that need it the most?
So my question to you is, how would you go about helping out our less fortunate brothers and sisters in this world?
Does anyone give to a reputable charity? Would you ever consider creating a charity?
Philanthropy and giving is an area that I have always been passionate about. How about you?
A human being is part of the whole, called the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
The delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection to a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Every event in life is an opportunity for you to show the world who you really are. Be Authentic Be Yourself.
“What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now.
It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future.
The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past.” – Sai Baba
