There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about. Margaret J. Wheatley

Trust the process of life. This is a statement we see thrown around a lot. What else can we do but trust the process of life, we rail against unfairness, and I rail against it more than I should.

Things shouldn’t be this way, people shouldn’t act like that, they don’t have the right, and it isn’t fair. Who says, and who is in control? If we don’t trust the process how can we live? When we see a cat with a mouse the process of life is at work, we might be happy if we are the cat, but what if we are the mouse?

Many of us in life feel we are the mouse. We aren’t in control of the big decisions; we don’t see life working out with our best interests in mind. We feel small in the big process of life, we feel our decisions hardly matter, and this is a dangerous way to feel. Some people feel if they looked different or came from somewhere else when they get to Canada they’d be treated differently.

We may have things at play we don’t understand, things we need to see are being brought out into the open and in the fullness of time what if the process of life works to make things better? That doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of suffering in the process, and if we are one of the ones that suffer we won’t like it, but as Shakespeare said, “We are all actors on the stage.”

Children being exploited are being brought to our attention and the Movie, “Sound of Freedom” is highlighting this.   What if this horrible situation has to come to our attention before it can be dealt with, what if it takes years, years, and years to get resolved? People have been exploited in the past, and we have righted some of those wrongs.

What if righting wrongs is one of the processes of life, but it is a messy part, and we can think the problem is too big to make a difference, but what if that is rarely true? What if making a difference is something we can all do in big and small ways? What if trusting the process is making where we are the best it can be and helping those in our circle of influence, and as our circle enlarges we help more and more, and what if even if our circle never enlarges what we do is still important?

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. R. Buckminster Fuller

What if instead of fighting about what someone else should do we concentrate on what we can do? What if pointing the finger at someone else often means we aren’t doing what is in front of us to do? Building a strong family means children are not easily exploited. I believe strong families build a strong country and where children are being exploited the family and society have broken down, and both need to be built back stronger and better.

It may seem selfish to some to concentrate on our own family, but if we are a strong family, building strong children who create strong families then we are not one of the problems society has to deal with. In a strong society, the breakdown of a family may not be a death sentence, but in a weak one, it might be.

Our beliefs don’t make us a better person our behavior does, and we show people who we are by what we do. We need to not give up on others or ourselves to build a better life, family, society, and world, but what does that look like?

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. Dale Carnegie

We cannot despair of humanity, since we ourselves are human beings. Albert Einstein

The most dangerous creation for any society is the man who has nothing to lose. James Baldwin
