The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
We manifest/magnify what we focus on, be it the old we re-create when we fight it, or the new we create when we move on and direct our attention towards the exciting new things that help us all (food-shelter-clean energy-internet access for all), that make all humanity happy. :) goo.gl/gA4rGi
Some people are very negative and will remain so for decades, it's sometimes wiser to switch focus and help the truly selfless and open minded who can help humanity more, than to be stuck fighting old ideas, ideologies, movements, or narrow minded people who think "they know it all". :)
Some things are beyond our capacity to change this lifetime and will require many centuries of progress for the planet, and us working at it perhaps in other bodies too via reincarnation ►https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/1M1QWqtv8Xe
When we are deeply upset about some things, we can try to do some time travel in the future and see how the world will reach peace. :) Then, we can walk in more peace and focus on the tasks doable this incarnation. :) The truth is that by focusing on negative things, watching the news too much, we cannot create the positive news the world needs. :) By watching the negative news too much, we give our creative power away and we don't bring anything new. We become like sheep blown by the winds of the media.
Every thought we think, image we see, article we read, song we listen to creates the future. If we engage with negative content or fight it, we re-create it. This "re-creation by obsessively worrying about it" is very difficult to overcome sometimes, if one has done it for years.
It's just better to create something new or different (but positive), like a new tech, idea, way of life that you teach by living example, powerful thought current started by your meditative and aware new thought witnessing process, or a new philosophy, social movement that over years, centuries or decades will make obsolete the old we dislike, or will absorb, neutralize, melt the evil we want so much to end in certain regions of the world. What took over 1000 years to spread to many nations won't go away in 1 year usually. :)
Say we dislike coal: we can go on bashing coal all day or just focus on building up solar, create new inventions that make solar far cheaper than coal and effectively make coal obsolete. :)
Say we dislike violence: we can go on bashing violence and complaining about guns, armies, etc or just focus on becoming ultra peaceful ourselves and working on nonviolence/compassion education/courses promotion in schools, kindergartens, universities - things that over centuries would make violence unthinkable. :)
Say we dislike men abusing women: we can go on bashing gender inequality, or we can teach everyone past life recall or astral travel so they realize they were and will be different genders and karma pay back time comes for every violent act against women this life in the so called "honor killings" or "forced marriages" so typical in some areas.
If Universities scientifically prove reincarnation as University of Virginia did (https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/VjxsbrqYYJh
), schools may teach Reincarnation as they teach math or Physics or Philosophy or Ethics as part of Consciousness-Psychology or something of that sort. Everyone might be taught that we reincarnate in different genders, races, religions, belief systems, social classes, and pay for our abuses/violence, everyone may learn to be civil and control themselves. Then, we will be able to have much longer lifespans too, since science will be used for longevity instead of for weapons to kill and to wage wars eternally.
:) May Peace prevail on Earth. :)
