I can feel a rising awareness of the change that is swiftly moving towards me.
In order to meet this new reality, I have been deeper than I ever imagined; and still it continues downward. But I breathe, and remind myself that despite the darkness I feel suffocated by, I am filled with light.
Held within the light are my visions for the future. A future overflowing with love, prosperity, and the illusion of separation finally shattered.
I don’t know how to always remember the connection we collectively hold, but I do know it begins with recalling that everyone on this Earth is deserving of being treated with humanity. Those we so often deem unworthy of basic necessities, are the most resilient of us all.
They have made it through horrors too wild to fully imagine, and still they continue on. Living, laughing, and creating an existence where we thought it wasn’t possible. In a world abounding with resources, more than enough for each of us to live comfortably, they are consistently given close to nothing. Meanwhile, a small percentage hoard riches beyond belief.
I believe one of the most important factors for creating an abundant future is providing every single person with adequate housing. This includes housing that is affordable, clean, and safe; no matter the person’s race, class, gender, sexuality, or any other label you want to put on them. Nobody should wonder where they are sleeping that night. Adequate housing is the first step in creating a stable, secure foundation to build upon.
So where do we start?
