Helen Keller was a beautiful soul. A soul that knew the potential beauty of the world despite being blind and deaf.
She never gave up, she never stopped trying. No matter what obstacles presented themselves in her way.
She stated “When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door, that we do not see the one that has opened for us.”
Such profound words and yet so simple. We as humanity, have grown accustomed to coveting the next person’s “things” or “accomplishments”.. or something that we had, but think we lost.. not realizing that what we “lost,” may be the biggest blessing from God all along.
How do we rectify these things? How to we make the world a better place? How can one person, see an opportunity in the form of a door being opened in their life?
I have the most simple answer. We dont rectify. Or “fix” what has already been done. We change. We teach our next generation what we have learned from the last 100 years. In those short 100 years, we have managed to almost close a door on humanities existence.
How you may be thinking?? Look around you. Are we so cruel as to drive by humans each and every day that are hungry? That are without a soft spot to lay their head? That are in need.. of anything? As a collective group, we DO have the power to reverse and completely restore humanity. I have faith that my God is powerful and strong. The universe is a big place. I have faith, that in each and every human being we have the power to stand up and say enough is enough! But what next?
Do we argue with each other over small and subtle differences? Do we fight over huge differences because that difference makes us better? Or do we stop and realize that not only do we have the ability to see an open door for us that is open.. we have the power to open a door for someone else.
We don’t realize sometimes, how huge, but what we consider small and insignificant, our actions actually are… But think about it.. or better yet, try it. Open a door for someone else. Literally speaking OR figuratively. Smile and wave at your neighbor. Check on the elderly that live near you. Pick up that piece of trash as you walk by, or better yet, next time you think of throwing something out? Wait. Throw it away wherever your going, when you get there.
Remember, you have little people watching. And THAT is how we will change humanity. One person at a time. Think about it. A great future? Or a future of closed doors because we were too preoccupied to see what was right in front of us all along.
Love and Light to all
