A little less conversation...

Read the news. Read Facebook. Read Twitter. Read lips everywhere you go. People are complaining. The price of gas is too high, the traffic is too heavy, the kids are disrespectful, politicians are corrupt, cancer is killing too many, the poor stay poor, my boss is unfair, my wife is a nag, my husband is inconsiderate, the bullies are rampant, the quality of education sucks, there's discrimination of all sorts everywhere, and so goes the list of complaints. Voicing our opinion in order to bring about awareness of social, political and economic issues is important. But it stops being effective when we rant day in and day out about the same issues and don't offer solutions. It is even less effective when we complain to people who can't do anything about it. At that point, we spread negativity and misery.

We all want what is best for us and our loved ones. How about we complain less and share our creativity, our time, our resources and our hands to resolve some of the issues we complain about? Elvis sang "...a little less conversation, a little more action...all this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me..." Exactly. 

Today is a good day to put our money where our mouth is. This is the way to love–to share what we know, what we have and what we can do for our benefit and the benefit of others. Pick an issue, meditate on it and do something about it. An offer made with love will be matched with love. The right resources, information and people will converge. With a little less talk and a little more action the complaining will lessen and a positive difference will be made.
