Music From The Heavens: Waiting on the World to change/John Mayer

worldI woke up yesterday with this song in my head… I think I have been feeling like I cannot make changes in certain things in my life, the things that really honestly I have no control over, other people, other relationships, the way life is. We cannot force a change in something we cannot control because in reality we can only control our self.

I also have noticed that get frustrated a lot about things that are just facts of life, the living day to day lessons that we all have to deal with. The frustration comes when I feel that I am wasting my time doing the same thing over and over again with no change, I want things to change now, so that I can keep moving.  So since the world outside is not going to change I can only change the way I handle it. The way my belief system, my perception, views it. If I believe that I am wasting my time then that equals me to get frustrated and angry. If I believe that I am learning lessons for my own growth, that equals power and I can effect change within myself where that is beneficial to me.

One belief system builds and the other weakens. Powerless vs. Powerful.

Time is our greatest asset next to love here on earth. Love is forever and Time is precious. I refuse to spend another minute on a belief system that burns up time with the emotion of frustration, so the very thing that I am upset about, wasting time, I am actually doing with all of my after emotional effect. If I would change my world instead of waiting on the world to change, I take back my own power which gives me more time to do things that I love..You can’t wait for the world to change, you change it with YOURSELF…..xoxo

Lyrics:

Me and all my friends
We’re all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing
And there’s no way we ever could

Now we see everything that’s going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don’t have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

It’s hard to beat the system
When we’re standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door

And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information
Oh, they can bend it all they want

That’s why we’re waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

It’s not that we don’t care
We just know that the fight ain’t fair
So we keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

And we’re still waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

No, we keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
(Waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change
Waiting on the world to change
