Time to stand up for what we believe to be right
What our world needs right now is an awakening of our humanity .
If we are honest with ourselves we spend a large part of our waking lives half asleep, largely unconscious or unaware of reality as it really is, seeing only illusory fragments, narrowed-down perspectives through mind-sets clouded with fears, anxieties, distractions, judgements, habituations and ruminations. If we were to really perceive life through all of our brains, bodies, hearts and souls, we would be in love with this awesome experience and attend to our relationships (strangers, friends, lovers and more-than-human kinship) in quite different more enlivened ways. This in turn would influence how we relate with the world in general and how we perceive ‘others’ such as immigrants or different creeds. We would activate a shift in our attention: one of care rather than control, of empathy rather than envy, fear and competition.
To fall in love with our life experiences – whether it is the small things, the routine activities or the breath-taking inspirations – is to make our escape from a warped worldview: a matrix of perception ingrained into us at partly unconscious levels.
Our worldview is acculturated in us – a deluding neurosis with devastating ramifications for human society and the wider fabric of life on Earth. And, our ingrained approaches to education, economics and organisational management are, in the main, infected by this neurosis and so exacerbating the acculturation of our insanity – what Albert Hoffman called a ‘Western entelechy neurosis’ and what Albert Einstein called ‘an optical delusion of consciousness’.
Yet each of us have the natural capacity to see beyond this delusion, regardless of our bank balance, job, upbringing or age. Through the quality of our attention and our conscious intention, we can break free from the matrix of our own making. We are our own jail makers and jail breakers.

In these challenging yet pivotal times for humanity we need all the assistance we can muster to help inspire this shift in awareness. Positive News in the UK provides just this by sharing front-line stories of ordinary people transcending fear with courage and selfishness with service.
In a world littered with debasing, oppositional, fear-filled news and twisted misrepresentations, this type of honest, humane and constructive journalism is rare; a sad reflection of how inured we have become in the illusion, and take it as quite normal, no longer able to sense the insanity so anesthetized we have become.
Positive News is free from the insidious commercialisation and political motives plaguing our newspapers, journals and magazines today. It takes a stand for what is right.
Positive News needs you and me to help support its co-operative venture so that it can continue to shine a light on the inspiring, constructive stories of ordinary people doing courageous things to make change happen in society.
Here is how you can help contribute to this front line action
It’s time to stand up for what we know in our hearts is right and move away from what we inherently know is undermining our very humanity. It’s time to live up to who we truly are.
