Equality is a massive expression of Positivity.

What could be more positive than equality between people? No matter our differences in skin color, gender, religion, nationality or sexual orientation we all desire equality, and that is a positive thing.

We live in a universe of abundance. The problem we encounter is that those in power want to horde as much power to themselves as possible. That just does not work, because they miss that in empowering people they actually further empower themselves.

Power and empowerment are all-too-often confused. The people who most desire what they view as “power” really want to feel ultimately empowered. Then, to further that feeling and to emphasize it they proceed to dis-empower everyone else. For some reason they believe that empowerment is limited, but they are mistaken – it is not. Empowerment is something everyone deserves to feel.

Last week gay marriage in the United States became simply marriage. Though some would claim this is a sure sign of doom and gloom, in truth the empowerment of more people in no way lessens anyone else. Why do we seem to feel as if letting other people be empowered dis-empowers anyone else? It really does not.

Everyone is deserving of equal treatment. No one wants to be looked down upon or treated as a second-class citizen despite their job, skin color, religion or sexual orientation. And why should we treat anyone as less than ourselves? Our empowerment should not come at the price of the dis-empowerment of anyone else, so it goes to follow that equality is deserved by all.

That feeling of equality is hugely empowering, which in turn leads to tremendous positivity. When people feel that they have equality and thus empowerment they feel good, and when more people feel good we gain more positivity, and we can build even greater things for everyone from there.

The world needs more equality. No nationality is greater than any other, no gender is superior, no love is more right – all are equal. All are deserved and deserving, and all are empowering. We all deserve that empowerment, and we all deserve equality in all kinds of ways.

Finding positivity is not hard, it just requires action. Knowing that we are all equal and all deserving equality, we can enjoy the empowerment this brings. Having equality between people no matter what differences we may attach to, we manage to successfully empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
