We have a choice: to be active or passive, to believe in something or just go along, to create or to consume.
It's really that simple. The choice part anyway. Putting that choice into action is anything but simple. And if we choose the active path, well, we have to act. To change the world for the better, to the best of our abilities, in little or in big ways.
We all change the world anyway, every day willy-nilly, by our choices or our ignorance.
We can make it better with our labor and our intelligence. We can create beauty, help others, build a community. We can look around and try to see what needs to get done. Look around and see the sky, the ocean, the land and let what we see, hear, smell, feel sink in deep.
