There is bad news everywhere

There is bad news everywhere.

Rarely do people look for good news, strangely.

I wonder how early humans coped without news, particularly bad news 24/7. Perhaps they simply enjoyed their lives and did not feel the need for drama.

Also, I have never been able in my life to change any news, including the bad. Accepting what is and realising it has already happened enables us to be at peace, even if we are not necessarily happy. Our dealing with situations is much better too when we do not label things good or bad, we accept them and deal with the situation.

Bad news will always be there if that’s what you need.

A wealth of…

It’s strange that we only look at wealth, and conversely poverty, in terms of money.

Why do we never measure or chase a wealth of love, a wealth of kindness, a wealth of joy, a wealth of peace, a wealth of consciousness? If you had a wealth of those things, then there would be no need to measure ourselves against each other, we’d realise we are all the same no matter what.

Why do we not reach out to people suffering from a poverty of kindness, love, joy, peace and so on? Why do we not fill our schools with learning about real wealth, instead of preparing people to earn money?

Funny how human society measures itself. The fact that we need to compare at all is strange.
