"Since recovering from a severe case of anorexia when I was 12, I am now very passionate as to why most of us suffer from self doubt or feel lonely. Most of the problems we face in today's world, I believe are based on us all feeling 'not quite good enough'. From this thought pattern people tend to want to prove their worth in ways that are not always healthy..." Follow the link to read more and comment...

"The lightside is an expression of the feeling from the most high power. We all produce, incarnate, create and manifest the light side. We are all made out of pure love and light but with manipulation from these figures who are running the world, We can feel disconnected. We must remember that we are all connected. Drop the ego and feed the soul. Clarity is key. Oneness is necessary. Lightside!" -Bronson, open minded lyricist.

I took this photo on #TPPANOWAY march day in auckland city. I think it portraits a very real message that once the secret deal is signed their is no turning back and our children can only standby and watch on as money and corporations take control over most aspects of our lives.

Humans for the future....

...not about tinting our perspective of the world with roses. The Idea is to create an optimistic community. Sharing around positive advice and inspiration. The more optimistic the world is the brighter the future will be! If everyone believes that the earth's future faces a downhill battle then this is what we face. If everyone believes in positive change and a sustainable future then this is the future we will steer toward.

 

The future is as bright as we all collectively imagine. I’m not saying it’s as simple as that. I'm saying that believing in things causes actions where as non belief does not. Follow this page and surround yourself with countless others that have the right idea and good advice. These are people from all walks of life. Let yourself be inspired!


Click photo and follow link to engage in dialogue, most people on here will see what you write and be happy to talk. Take what you want from this and roll with it. Form your own ideas and share with others. Look further into subjects that interest you. If something feels right...get involved!
