Light up the Darkness
The attached quote was stated by Bob Marley, before appearing on stage to perform at a peace rally; after being shot just two days prior to the peaceful event. It was also quoted in the movie “I am Legend” by main character Will Smith, as he recites it to the woman in the movie; in regards to the plaque that had killed most of humanity and turned the rest into creatures causing destruction throughout New York.
However, we can also take that quote from Bob Marley, to also start promoting what we love instead of promoting all the things we hate. If we focused more on all the things in this world that brings us joy and happiness, there would be no room in our lives for any hatred or negativity.
An eye for an eye only leaves everyone blind. Besides, why should we waste our time, our thoughts, our days and our energy focusing on things that would never be a part of our lives? Think about it, do you allow something you hate to be a part of your life? If you don’t like a certain food you don’t eat it; a certain color you don’t wear it, so, why allow any negativity into your life by allowing it a thought.
If we really want to start the New Year off correctly, why not only speak on the positive things in life which we are interested in. Instead of talking badly about other people, commenting on subjects you don’t agree with and just being negative in our daily actions, why not speak on, think on and comment on things that interest you that are going to make your and others life better.
You have to agree that when we spend our time focusing on the negative things in life, it only leads us closer to destruction toward our own hearts and others lives. Yet, if we devote our time and actions to living in a more positive manner, it not only helps us, but it will also help to become an inspiration to others around you within your circle and at home to be more positive as well.
I am sure we are all aware that life is short, so why waste the rest of your time here being negative and spreading the negativity among others around you. Instead let’s focus on making the life we have left here brighter by being a light in all the darkness.
