Have you ever thought about how fascinating it all is... YOU and ME cohabitating on this amazing planet which is full of wonder and beauty, yet we feel so scared and angry over all the injustice and suffering?
Not knowing how we can stand in solidarity with others? Not knowing if the information we receive is true or false? Deluded by our political systems? Feeling discontent? Imagine a world where this just didn’t happen.
My name is Nicola and I am on a mission to build a more compassionate and creative planet where we begin to recognise and appreciate all its beauty. When I talk about beauty I am speaking about tapping into our authentic selves by connecting with our creative pursuits.
When I talk about compassion I am not talking about the absence of conflict, but more about the ability to cope with conflict and find solutions.
I have a personal connection with this from taking part in a social media campaign where I felt shamed, I had received a different awareness of the “challenge” and the overwhelm of negativity highlighted to me how quickly people are to shame others.
I watched how peoples opinion’s involved an insult, a belittling and a finger wagging. I see this behaviour repeated in our political systems, our news networks and filtered down into the school playground. Its like a frequency destined to crush our desires and silence us in our persuit of knowledge, understanding and ultimately our happiness.
I am currently leading a movement called On The Compassion Wagon.
This is specifically targeted at people who have a kindling in their belly to create a more balanced planet but feel a lack of connection to themselves and the world around them. But I am also looking for people like you who just bloody care about bringing more compassion into the planet.
