Part Two -Our greatest need is …
To Be Valued And Loved!
The two do go together, having a value and being loved. Yet in a world filled with people, our greatest need goes unfulfilled. And unfortunately, around the planet, it is children and adults (in fact all life) who are unloved and found valueless that are suffering from starvation, disease, abuse, poverty and death.
It is the children and adults in the larger inner cities that go homeless and hungry, abused and mistreated because they believe themselves to be (and in many cases are shown to be) unloved and having no value.
It is the many working adults and their children struggling to make ends meet in our ever changing environment who undervalue themselves, feeling unloved and wondering how to make everything be okay … Just okay.
It is the condition of false complacency that underlies – allowing all of these things to continue.
Bottom line, without exception we ALL need Love and a sense of purpose because we matter, and many of us need to be told this and have it visibly demonstrated in order to really believe it. And that isn’t happening the way it should.
Money doesn’t matter, let me repeat this so it’s a little clearer … MONEY DOESN’T MATTER after the basics I mentioned are attended to. If civilization as a whole is feeling forgotten, unloved and of no value, it’s because money has achieved a greater importance than the loving arms of someone holding you with true affection, a firm handshake of fellowship and positive connections being made across the lines of those who think differently than we do.
Humanity cannot truly move forward as long as the accumulation of wealth and material items for its own sake (which begets greed, the need to control and of course war and subsequent human loss and casualties) is viewed as the primary goal to success.
Loving and caring more. Sharing more. Encouraging more. Realizing you do need a lot less material items in your life. Being there for family and friends. Reaching out. Making a positive difference. THAT’S WHAT IS ULTIMATELY GOING TO MOVE EARTH SOCIETY FORWARD.
Currently the biggest problems we are dealing with have to do with complacency, apathy, indifference, greed and laziness and of course the belief that all things have a predetermined shelf life, including us. These problems in turn have caused all the other problems we find so overwhelming and … as is most generally the case, we are the root cause.
Ironically, happiness is always found in the simple things in life, and those things turn out to be the most important!
Seek value in everyday things. Recapture worth by finding it within yourself and others. Love, reach out, share, care – be there for family and friends. In the process you’ll discover your own heart filling with love. A heart filled with love has no room for hate. A mind filled with thoughts of giving and sharing has no room for greed or complacency. And achieving purpose that is filled with making a positive difference, finds value and worth in all things and all life … as it should be.
Much love to you this day thank you for reading,

Values, in most parts of the world, values just don’t exist. Most didn’t kill someone, because either they didn’t get a chance or they are too scared to do so. They didn’t steal for the same reason, they didn’t rape for the same reason and the list goes on. They don’t do it because they can’t do it. However values are something when you choose the right thing even though you have a chance of going to the opposite side. Values are very rare. It’s the adults being abused and it’s some other adults abusing them. But let’s just hope, things turn around the way you described. Beautiful thoughts.
You are correct. And I hope also. I hope with all my heart. Thank you, Umair

What we really need …. to be valued and loved!!
Thanks Horty. I really believe we (the people) are the main reason things are so out of control right now. Darn it. I just want to go out right now and fix things! I know you do too. But small steps my friend, and never giving up. 🙂
Remind me once in a while …. as you so well do. I sometimes feel that I can’t!
hugs ….. 😎
Okey Dokey Horty. Anything is possible if you believe! Walt Disney felt that way and just look what he managed to do (when it came to creating joy and laughter for hundreds of millions of children.) 🙂
Of course. I miss my friends too and I don’t dare to meet them as often as before because they are working now and so do I.
It is difficult with the many responsibilities we all have today, Yoshiko. I agree with you.
