Has the world gone mad?
I ask this question very seriously. We are witnessing a pivotal time in human history. Mankind has been evolving for aeons, slowly loosening their comforting grasp on issues of old to allow in new and advanced ways of thinking.
The turn of the millennium has brought with it a shift beyond anything the world has ever seen. People are awakening to the truth within their hearts and casting aside the varied mental constructs that keep division and hatred alive.
People are choosing acceptance over exclusion. They are opening their hearts to the reality that we are all in this together.
The evidence is all around us. We are seeing a progressive shift towards love and life that seeks understanding; and the acceptance that comes with it.
For many of us the above statements are true and easily perceived. Yet for too many of us this shift is seen as a threat. Conservative and old-fashioned ways of thinking are trumping the advancements for far to many of us.
That is why I ask the question; “Has humanity gone mad?”.
I would think that all of humanity would be united in wanting the peace and progress that comes from understanding, instead of the divisiveness and stagnant bias that is breed through ignorance.
Yet I am wrong. Many have become so steeped in the ways of old that they are comforted by the very things that cause us harm. They welcome the abuser, they enable them, and their identities are inextricably intertwined.
The time is always now. We must do all we can to spread the truth as fast as we can, and dispel the lies spread by those who would damn the progress we have made thus far.
I do not think I need to specify an issue, we all see the fight raging before us.
There are things in our past that we should always hold dear and preserve to the best of our ability, but those things should only be what enriches and awakens the best aspects of our humanity. If it brings out the worst in us it has got to go, so that we can be the best we have to offer for ourselves and for those around us.
Be safe out there, and keep fighting the good fight. Remember to love one another and seek understanding instead of casting others aside. I guarantee you that if you simply seek to understand your enemy you will find a companion.
As usual, thanks for stopping bye.
