In 1971 Marvin Gaye released the song, “What’s Going On” and here we are close to 50 years later, asking the same question.

It seems we may have missed the part where he says…

“You know we’ve got to find a way to bring some loving here today.
You know we’ve got to find a way to bring some understanding here today.”

(If it’s been a while since you’ve listened to it, here’s the song

These words ring true today and this is what we can ALL do, to bring about healing and peace.

With so many problems looming in our world right now you may be asking,

  • Where do I start?
  • How can just one person make any difference?

The answer is, everything begins with YOU (and me too, of course.) The place to begin is within.

Imagine if each one of us were to take on bringing more love and understanding into our own lives … what a wonderful world that will be!

No more pointing fingers at others about what they’re doing or not doing but instead focusing on what WE are doing or not doing.

  • Was I kind and understanding with my family today? (Or was I short-tempered, reactive rather than responsive.)
  • Did I view my news feed (on TV or social media feed) with love and understanding? Or, did I view some posts and judge those people as wrong? You may have even thought (or said), “What a bunch of idiots!”
  • When you went to the grocery store did you get angry with someone who (a) wasn’t wearing a mask or (b) was wearing a mask? Note this isn’t an article to debate about masks … it’s about observing where we can bring more love and understanding into each moment of our lives.

If we believe that “Only Love can conquer hate” (and I do), then my first and foremost responsibility and where my power lies is in …

Being The One to love more.

Being The One to seek to understand more (especially if I have a different opinion).

Being The One to spread the message that LOVE is the answer.

Thank you for Being The One!
