“The only thing that divides is what you allow….” ~ Anonymous
Keep the above quote in mind as you read this.
The world as we know it is in a sad state these days. Whether it’s your own personal world or the entire world, everyone is turned upside down and inside out. Seems like everyone we meet these days is angry about something. So, what went wrong? I could list the reasons, but if I did, you’d be reading this all day.
I was scrolling thru my social media news feed, I stumbled upon this, “Let’s not focus on one particular situation, let’s focus on the world as we are one. The only thing that divides is what you allow. When did this all change? When has hatred become the only rule we have to follow?? Whatever happened to sending the much needed love to everyone?? When was the last time you smiled at a stranger or said good morning. My heart aches over the way the world has become and we as a society need to change this.” ~ Anonymous
These days, we are bombarded with information and misinformation 24/7. We find the majority of this stuff on the news, internet or social media. To often this information seems to be targeted to pit one person against another or at the very least make us angry. When then take that anger out into the world and infect others. We need to rise above all of this anger and hate. If we don’t…well I fear of where we’ll be 5, 10, 20 years from now. Practicing Spiritual Principles like acceptance, tolerance and patience can at least lower the temperature amongst us.
Thought for the day: Let’s start working together to make this a better world than when we found it.
