Each one of us lives in our own reality and who is to say which one of us is right?
Take for example, our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau who believes in welcoming those that are fleeing persecution, terror & war while at the same time, in the United States, Donald Trump is closing his borders to those fleeing persecution, terror & war.
The refugee situation is the same, however, one believes in compassion and the other in instilling fear. There are thousands who support each of them. Depending on your own perception of reality, you agree with one or the other.
So what makes people believe one way or the other?
I believe, those that live in fear, believe in scarcity and usually tend to expect the worst.
It’s up to the compassionate ones, the grateful ones, the ones who believe we are all born equal, to do what they can in their own small way, whether it’s by protesting injustices around the world, sponsoring a refugee or giving money to a cause.
You can choose your own reality and begin to notice that if you choose to be fearful, you’ll draw more things to be fearful of into your life.
If you choose to be grateful, you’ll notice that you get more things to be grateful for…so my friends, change your perception and see your reality change.
