Technology has created bridges among us, yes, and many find fascinating its power for closing gaps. But, what about the disconnection that has emerged from this new era of virtualization? Nowadays, ironically, people are even more disconnected, because they are fully connected to their devices. And here is when I have “4 Non-Blondes” yelling in my mind “What’s going on?”
What’s going on with humanity?
While the planet is reaching 8 billion people soon, according to Global Wash facts, an estimated of 1.8 billion people (25% of the world’s population) have no access to adequate water sanitation. The world hunger statistics establish that 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth and yet 1/3 of food is wasted. And statistics go on for access to education, electricity, dignified housing, rights, opportunities…
Is it normal that billions have no access to basic needs that we take for granted? Does injustice hurt? Heck yes! It does. And what are we really doing? What do we really want to do? For sure we cannot solve all of these issues right away, perhaps not with our own hands, but we can start by being aware of everything we are so fortunate to have and join the causes that are making a difference.
This awareness will make us reduce the fast speed consumption that we have nowadays.
Awareness increases empathy.
We live so much on our little bubble that we forget, we are too busy to see what really matters.
We believe there is a reason for all of that. For us, the reason behind this upside-down world is our disconnection as humanity. Yes, we are not able to feel other’s pain like our own, and we should know that whatever affects a child on the other side of the planet also affects us, you, me, everybody; because everything is about us as a big global family.
Here is the plan:
We need to reconnect with ourselves to reconnect as humanity. We need to understand that the change we want to see in the world will really start with our own life. How aware are we about our challenges, feelings, needs, deep beliefs, deep dreams?
This is an invitation to be the change in your life. Give yourself time for a self-discovery and a reconnection. Nothing important happens from one day to the other, but if you take the first step it will get real. It is the accumulation of different consistent actions that will generate momentum and traction because when we start the change, we inspire others to change, and the more we inspire others, the more others will inspire us.
Nobody said it was easy but we can make it happen, you and me. Are you ready to join the movement? Together can create the magic for making this a more compassionate and beautiful world!
Can we really reconnect as humanity? We believe we can do it! we just need to work more on our self-awareness. By the way, are we already connected? Follow us! We are always happy to connect with awesome human beings! 😉
Thank you for reading, and please, help us share the message. When people is empowered, they thrive in life and when they do so, they help to make the world a better place for all. Let’s make it happen!
