For a while now I’ve been wanting to offer people a positive way of honoring humanity and inspiring. I thought about creating a Museum, perhaps an online version. A museum unlike any other that I’ve been to. It won’t tell the stories of the world’s greatest atrocities but instead exhibit stories of love, generosity and kindness. I think it’s actually irresponsible for us to have exhibits scaring and depressing the heck out of us. Bring us to our lowest emotions of fear, anger and hopelessness. Rather this museum inspires us on how we can change the world not by reminding ourselves of the terrible things that have happened…but instead by living from a higher perspective. Then, I believe, the world will change, from one person at a time becoming diligent, about who they are and who they want to be, as they go about their day. While at this point I have no idea how to get started, I’ll share a portion of a talk I delivered about this.
The Museum of Inspiration and Humanity will honor the human spirit and inspire us, as we learn of small and large, random and deliberate acts of generosity and kindness.
The museum will serve to educate and inspire us by telling stories of forgiveness, cooperation, compassion and love. We’ll learn of extraordinary behavior across the world. The exhibit will encourage feelings of hope and inspire us to take action to create positivity and change. We’ll be reminded that we’re all connected, and even the smallest action, is vitally important to the world. Our positive thoughts and actions benefit all of mankind.
As we experience the museum, we’ll open our hearts and see possibilities for each other and the world. We’re all already humanitarians, in small and large ways, every day. We’ll know that we can be transformed, either by receiving or performing an act of love. After we leave the exhibit our higher emotions may stay with us for quite some time. It’s in this state of living in our higher emotions, that we start to believe in possibilities, and realize we create possibilities.
We’re all worthy, and each of us can perform incredible acts of love, and move mankind forward. We will honor ourselves, by not only setting an intention, but also by acting on our intention, thereby honoring the light within ourselves, and being a light for others.
