“All you need is Love.”
“What the world needs now, is Love, Sweet Love.”

At first glance, these words might seem like corny song lyrics, but upon further exploration, you may also find an innate truth. A truth that is “up” for your and my assessment so that we can hear the deeper call of recent world events.

Albert Einstein told us long ago a wise truth: that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again all the while expecting a different result.

And yet that’s precisely what we often see time and again on the world stage. Hatred, anger, violence, and pain projected out in violent acts and events and with it a response of outrage, judgment, and blame.

So it begs the question: what would happen if instead of doing what we’ve always done (which we’ve already established is pure insanity), we, as a collective, hit a tipping point where more of us were choosing another option and living in a new way, free of the insanity that has been our reality for eons?

What if after all of this time, we chose to follow the wise counsel of the likes of Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and Jesus Christ?

Each of these wise men told us to love our “enemies,” and to let our anger move us forward into loving action that is love revolution.

So, imagine what would happen if instead of projecting our pain, anger, and hatred back at those carrying those very energies that we finally followed the guidance from these wise ones and put into action a love-centered way of living?

Are you game?!

If so, check out the following 5 ways that you can begin today to support a mass tipping point for a revolution – not of continued violence, war, and pain – but Love:

1. Commit to ending all intake of violent media, which advocates and perpetuates a vibration of violence.

When we watch crime dramas or violent films or play violent video games or sing along to violent, degrading lyrics in a song as a form of entertainment we are literally saying to the Universe and to film, TV, video game and music creators, “yes, I want more of this in my life and thus in this world.”

Let’s slow this down for a minute and think about it more fully. Why would we think that watching other people “pretend” to kill and harm one another was a form of entertainment? Sounds a little bit like the insanity that Einstein was talking about before, right?

Not to mention the message it sends to young boys and girls as well as adult males and females in this country and abroad about how to treat one’s fellow human. The “good versus evil” storyline is one that we and the entertainment industry have been focused on for a long time (you know, doing the same thing we’ve always done and then expecting that people won’t act out in violence – that’s insanity!). These distorted forms of “entertainment” keeps us in a perpetual cycle of war, violence, and hatred.

It’s time to send a strong message to all entertainment creators – unless it’s filled with peace and Love – we’re not having anything to do with it.

2. Get involved with an organization – in your local community, preferably – that promotes peace and love and empowerment.

I have a list of Peace, Love & Empowerments organizations listed on my blog here for inspiration:

Make it your commitment to 1-2 times a month be actively involved in joining forces with this organization to spread more peace and love to your and our planet.

3. Wear the love and peace message in every way you can.

Get clothing and/or jewelry and/or tattoos that carry messages of Love and peace, and wear it proudly whenever you’re out and about.

4. Speaking of when you’re out and about, smile at that person walking past you or in front of you, tip generously, compliment those you come into contact with.

If someone looks like they need a hug, ask them if you can give them one. Turn “random” acts of kindness into your daily experience. In addition, you can pray each day for peace and love in your part of the world and the entire world at large. Use everything you’ve got to create a vibration of love and peace for yourself and all those in the world.

5. Clean up the way you talk and think about yourself and those around you. Especially those that you perceive as “different” from you.

This is where a good therapist, healer, or mentor comes into play. The only way we get to a world with love as its primary operating system is if we have people in the world who are actively dedicated to living as love and peace while on this planet.

To do that, you have to clean up the violent ways you think about yourself and those around you. A trained, healing professional can support you in doing so. Why bring someone else on your team? Think of athletes or anyone who is a master at what they do. They have a team – sometimes filled with a vast entourage – of support people.

Why? Because they know there are things they can’t see about themselves that is tripping up their ability to be the master they know they were born to be. The same is true in life.

To be a master, you must begin to live as a master. Every master has an incredible team supporting him/her to embody his/her Destiny fully. A Love Revolution requires nothing less as well.

At this time in our world’s history, in the evolution of human beings, we are each presented with an incredible opportunity to break out of the collective insanity of blame, judgment, war, hatred, and violence.

But only if we will take consistent and focused action to bring more love into the world.

Let’s start right now!

I’ll go first:

I love you. And I want you to have the best life you can possibly can truly. And I want to do everything in my power to cheer you on so that you and I can each create this and therefore create space and inspiration for even more beings to do the same.

So, how can I support you in this? How can I support YOU in living your most Love-filled, peaceful, prosperous life?

Okay, now your turn…
