What on Earth is going on? Where is the love? Are we happy? Why make Delight?
The serious side to Delight Making….
If we measured our wealth by the level of laughter in the world’s children, how rich would we be?
“Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted.” Albert Einstein.
The very fact that humans have created a world that needs the institution of an orphanage says everything about the state of the human heart today, about our values, about our sense of community. The fact that an orphanage is the best that some children could imagine and hope for is beyond comprehension.
Human trafficking, child abuse, three people dying every minute from either starvation or from preventable and curable diseases, economic slavery, environmental disaster and disconnection from nature – that is our creation. It is the result of our current level of consciousness and the choices that we have all made, and still make, from that consciousness.
Is this what we want to be creating and building in this world? Is it making us feel good?
Through the media, people have been bombarded with information about what is wrong in the world and how they should be different. This information is becoming over whelming, leaving many feeling inadequate, unsuccessful and despairing as the world’s problems appear to continue and increase.
There is rarely any news of people turning the problems around.
For many it seems that there is a growing sense of there being too much to overcome, with the apparent level of problems becoming so big that there is now a resulting reaction of apathy and resigned impotence, often accompanied by the belief or sentiment that “nothing I do will make a difference anyway”.
The old models of preaching and telling people to behave differently are not working. In fact, without empowering somebody with the knowledge and tools of how to take charge of the drivers behind their choices, the approach of preaching is torturous, and only compounds a greater sense of guilt and failure, facilitating further shut down.
We all know that we need to make changes. We often try to change, but more often than not we don’t really change. We may make a temporary gesture of good will, a donation, a kind act or resolution to be different, but we do not change at our core being. The reason that we don’t change at our core being is that, for the most part, we have not been shown how to, or have not been given the tools to change. They are missing from our education system. We have not been trained in the Art of Living.
How different would our world be if we made our decisions from an awakened and happy state of mind?
The message of the Delight Makers Foundation is that the awakening of humanity to a higher state of being is the event of our times. We are powerful enough to change. The tools exist and have been here for centuries….so let’s use them and get this new cycle of Delight Making started!
