Embracing different

The closer we get to the opposite, to the different, to strangers, then the more we understand.

If we only experience our ‘bubble’ of life, then we lack the ability to truly understand and empathise with another.

Much of the violence both physical and mental is created from a lack of understanding as we stay within our echo-chambers and become fuelled with hate for anything different.

If we embrace differences we grow more together and become less disconnected and less fearful.

Wake up

20-30-40-50 years ago we might have had a house phone, a TV set, one car, one holiday a year, our ‘Sunday Best’ outfit.

We didn’t have a mobile phone (some have 2), a mini iPad, an iPad, a laptop, a home PC – that’s each. We didn’t have a car each, we didn’t have the internet, we didn’t have a TV in every room.

We have everything now, more than we can possibly use or value, we are connected to email, social media, the internet and the world 24/7 wherever we are. We have more devices, technology, connections and alerts than we’ve ever had.

Yet we are the most lonely, most disconnected, dissatisfied, inhumane, violent, hateful, distrusting and generally miserable humans to ever walk this planet. We are the most unconscious and mind-controlled ever.

If only we could wake up and see it. The reality of human’s insanity that we live on a daily basis is there for us all to see. Then it is a choice as to whether we want to stay awake or go back to the insanity of unconsciousness.
