I usually look at the big picture. When I think of my children and grandchildren, all nine of them, I like to imagine what the great grandchildren and great great children would be like. Then I try to imagine the world we will be leaving them. I must confess that I don’t feel as hopeful as I did in the sixties.
In the 60’s, we really wanted a peaceful world filled with love, kindness, compassion and equality. We didn’t achieve it. I hope history will show that we tried. I hope that we can leave the next generations a beautiful world where people think about each other and offer a helping hand. I hope that they will honor Mother Earth and save her. I hope that they all find a spiritual path, but understand that they should not war and fight over the various paths.
I hope that they believe trees and flowers are more important than money. I hope they will not be racist or judgemental. I hope they develop the ability to look at other human beings and see the similarities, not the differences. I hope they can see beyond what gratification they want and find their happiness in love of their fellow human beings.
What do you want for your future generations?
