I very rarely say this about a film, but if you haven’t seen the new “Wonder Woman” movie yet, I highly suggest you make some time to do so. Not only is it action-packed with a great storyline, but how she saves the world at the end of the movie is a life lesson we should all consider.
I love facebook and believe it is an amazing communication tool. I get to see pictures of friends and family all across the globe that I rarely see in person, and it brings us closer together than ever before. My family that lives 800 miles away can all instantly see where we are on tour, and I can be a part of weddings or celebrations that I couldn’t fly in for. However lately, there has been a huge shift on facebook with many posts of hatred, much of the time towards politics and politicians.
Being a huge believer of the law of attraction, to me, these posts defeat the purpose of why they were posted. A lot of my friends say they are “fighting with love”, and yet still post negative and nasty words towards others they feel are being unfair or unjust. All this is doing is pouring energy into the thing that is “hated” in the first place. Have you noticed that the politicians who usually are the most disliked on social media are the ones who get elected over and over again? I believe that this is largely in part of a great deal of energy going into that person. Positive or negative, it’s still ENERGY, and things with more energy tend to grow.
So today, I encourage whoever might be reading to stop pouring energy into what you dislike, and instead focus hard on what you do want. Truly focus hard on love. If you are anti-war, don’t post about being anti-war… post about how you are pro-peace. If you don’t like something a politician is doing, don’t post about it and complain, instead find something that can help the situation and post about what you love about it.
I encourage each and every one of you to keep standing up for what you believe in, (and to appreciate the fact that if you live in America you CAN stand up for what you believe in because of our amazing freedom)! But instead of being anti-war…. be pro-peace. Instead of posting negative pictures and nasty things about politicians you don’t like, post about the good examples of the people and situations that are loving and making great things happen. Stop putting energy into hate, even if your intentions are pure.
At the end of the film, confused and disappointed in mankind, Diana (AKA Wonder Woman) has a choice. She is told from all angles that mankind “doesn’t deserve” her help. And she comes to the realization that it’s NOT about “deserve”…. It’s about what you believe. That’s when she chooses love over destruction, and (literally) saves the world.
Right now, take a deep breath, and a moment to find your inner happiness and love so that you can begin to share it. Think before you post and make sure you’re putting energy into what you want to be putting energy into. Every one of us has a small desire to be “Wonder Woman/Wonder Man”, and this is how to start.
