A little known thing about manifestation is that the issues that you came to experience most are always closest to you physically. This is important, and is the basis of Seth's comment.
It is important for each of us to fully experience our own physical "Now" moments. This is the base from which our thoughts and feelings radiate to influence the course of humanity and the planet Gaia. It is also the base from which we create new possibilities (for us and the world) and the base from which we select each and every "Now" moment.
So, it is vitally important to stay grounded in our personal reality and to own the fact that we chose this experience. Taste the coffee, smell the roses, love the moment exuberantly!
"Despite all appearances, conditions of an exterior nature do not cause wars, or poverty, or disease, or any of the unfortunate circumstances apparent in the world. Your beliefs form your reality. Your thoughts generate practical experience. When these change, conditions will change. To add your own energy, focus, and concentration to dire circumstances in other portions of the world does not help, but adds to such situations.
"To close your eyes to them in an ignorant fashion, to wash your hands of them, so to speak, is equally short-sighted. To pretend such situations do not exist, out of fear of them, will only bring the feared reality closer. It is far better to situate yourself firmly in your own reality, acknowledge it as your own, encourage your strength and creativity, and from that vantage point view those areas of the world or of your own society that need constructive help. Purposefully in your own life, in your daily dialogues with others, in your relationships through your groups or clubs, reinforce as well as you can the strength and abilities of others. That reinforcement will add to the personal power of all other individuals with whom those people come in contact."
