I am not an advocate against war…I am an advocate for peace.

I am not an advocate for tolerance…I am an advocate for acceptance.

I am not an advocate for the war on terror…I am an advocate for non-violence.

I am not an advocate for religion…I am an advocate for following your individual path.

I am not an advocate for punishment…I am an advocate for recognition and reward.

I am not an advocate for fighting disease…I am an advocate for promoting health.

I am not an advocate for hate or fear…I am an advocate for love.

Be who you are, not who someone else wants you to be. Shine your light so brightly that others cannot help but recognize who you are…you are LOVE. ~Ruth Soltman

There are so many things going on in our world today…we are constantly “fighting”. We have become a society of fighters. We fight the war on drugs…the war on terrorism…and we “tolerate” and try to change those we deem undesirable by our standards.  What a negative way to view the world.

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”  ~Norman Vincent Peale

Realizing that the energy that we put out there is the energy we get back…is it any wonder humanity is in the crisis situation that it is? Of course not. All of our focus is on the negative…so that is what comes back to us. What if we decided to see things from a different perspective… the “other” side? What if we decided to focus on the positive rather than the negative? Let’s think about what that would like. Instead of fighting the war on terror…what if we became an advocate for non-violence? Instead of fighting for cures for diseases…what if we became advocates of health? What if instead of fighting for “religious rights” we became advocates of everyone following their own individual path to their Higher Power? What if we stopped medicating our symptoms and actually got to the root cause of our emotional issue that is causing those symptoms? What if we started living every single moment from a place of love…total, unconditional love…for ourselves and others?

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.  ~Judy Garland

Why do we constantly feel the need to “convert” people to our negative ways of thinking and behaving? The time is NOW for people to stand up and claim their power. To stand up and claim their lives. The time is NOW for people to create change and make a difference in their lives and in this world. Each and every single one of us CAN make a difference. One of my favorite quotes is from Gandhi “Be the change that you want to see in the world”. It is NEVER too late to change!!! And just like that stone that is tossed into the ocean…there is a ripple effect that touches every single of drop of water in that ocean. We are ALL connected in that way. Eventually the energy that you put out there…touches everyone. So make sure you make a positive ripple in the ocean of humanity.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.  ~Dr. Seuss

Some people say that their negative ways were the way they were raised…or it’s all they ever knew…parental or societal conditioning or programing. Well that may be a good excuse if they were still children. However, as adults they are free to make their own decisions. You CAN change the way you think and the things that you think about! It is all up to you!

Don’t live down to expectations.  Go out there and do something remarkable.  ~Wendy Wasserstein

Where can you start? Educate YOURSELF!!! Do not leave this up to the media…or the doctors…or the religious leaders…for most serve their own agendas…search for your own answers to questions that puzzle you. Really, really think and analyze your thoughts. Get to the core of why you believe something. Is it because your parents believed it? Is it because you were taught it in school? Did you see it on the news? Consider the source. Use your inner guidance…it is there for a reason. And when you tap into it and listen to it…it will NEVER steer you wrong. It is there for guidance and to lead you to that which is ONLY for your highest good. When something doesn’t “feel” right…there is a reason for it…because it is NOT right. Brighten your love light, allow your inner glow to reveal itself to the world.  Go with your gut…your intuition is never wrong…you just have to learn to trust it.

Let the light of who you are shine so brightly that people cannot help but notice. You will truly be a very positive force in our world. ~Ruth Soltman

Shine your light for all to see. Give your thoughts to that which is positive and good. You truly are…The Light of the World.

    Love what you said about the excuse of being raised a certain way might be appropriate if they were still children – but adults are free to make their own decisions. Unfortunately, all decisions are drawn from the foundation of self love, and way too many people are laking self love.

    1. Ruth says:

      Thanks Gil! I totally agree that too many people are lacking self love. Once they learn to love themselves…the love they have for others will be felt on a much deeper level.

        If there be righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in character. If there be beauty in character, there will be harmony in the home. If there be harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. If there be order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.

    Great article. Yes, we are in a transformational time. The old ways won’t work any longer. It is the light from our heart, which will prevail giving us peace, love and compassion and to be truly authentic, living our soul purpose and helping others in the world to find the same. Thank you for what you do! God Bless You!

    Thank you for sharing! I enjoyed your words here, and couldn’t feel any more the same! I totally agree with you on all accounts. I personally do not watch the news because it is so negative, and I try not to advocate being “anti” anything if possible. Instead I send healing energy towards situations in ways that I can positively affect the outcome – rather than focus on advocating why it’s horrible.

    Great to connect with you.
