If there is such a thing as a ‘collective consciousness,’ I envision it as a river with each of us sitting on its banks.
We draw from the river of common thoughts, concerns, ideas and opinions, and we pour into it our own contributions.
I ask myself, “What am I putting in this river?”
Is my contribution wholesome and creative, or am I dumping toxic wastes of racism, anger, lust, unforgivenss and fear?
Just like all the chemicals we dump on our pristine suburban lawns, (toxins that then run-off into rivers and the water basin) we can poison the cosmic waterways with negativity. We can also change the world for good.
Our thoughts and words and prayers matter, and make a difference.
