Luckier Than Fox Mulder: From Wanting to Believe to Believing

The now iconic poster that graced Fox Mulder’s basement office for all ten seasons has meant a lot of things to a lot of people in an array of different circumstances.  Back in August 2008, I shared some thoughts of what it meant within the narrow context of alien life.  As I reread that post, I couldn’t help but think of a much important application of this mantra: to nurture hope.

There is a lot happening in the world that gives us reason to believe that humans are a horrible lot and that nothing can save us from self-extinction.  I can’t blame people for having this view—I don’t watch the news on television anymore because it’s just all too much.

But because I wanted to believe, I went looking for concrete signs of the possibility of a better life, one lead by our higher, spiritual nature, right here on earth.  And I have to say, I find signs of it everywhere.  Not just that—but there seems to have been a sharp increase of positive news and stories to share in recent years.  I’m not sure if it’s because there are more such stories to share in the first place, or because more and more people are doing the same thing as I am: choosing to be positive in the face of a world painted black by mainstream news outlets.

So yes, I want to believe—but more importantly, unlike Mulder, I have increasing and solid proof that the world can indeed become a better place, and that an increasing number of people are actively taking part in making it so.

{ Sahar’s Blog is all about being in a constant state of learning.  So it only made sense for me to go back to all my previous posts and see how my thoughts on certain topics have changed over the last nine years.  In this new, ongoing series of posts, I’ll be rereading some of my older posts and reflecting on the same topic in light of what I’ve learned since then.  It’s going to be very interesting to see how things have changed! }
