We have figured out how to build the biggest and tallest buildings. How to put a man in space. We want to figure out how to colonize Mars. We are trying harder and harder how to get further apart from one another. When what we need is to get closer together. We are on this planet for the long haul. We are all going to be here together. Whether you like or not.
What we need is to learn how to get closer together. I have people message me from across the globe and ask me questions about who I am and what I do. I thought about this the other day and it was interesting because I have never even met my neighbor.
We are constantly looking to go beyond where we are and yet we haven’t even figured out where we are now. We are messing up our food source, wars are constant anymore, killings are a normal occurrence on the news. We worship celebrities that have zero talent and give nothing and we think that’s OK. Happiness is found in the bottom of a $5,000 handbag. We will wait in line patiently for weeks to get the new iPhone. God forbid if a natural disaster occurred, we would kill each other for a sandwich that we would feel is owed to us by the government.
Politicians that we have elected to protect us and do what’s right for humanity are now business men and woman doing what’s right for their bank accounts. What do we do? Go to the streets and fight each other. The ones that we put in office to protect us, have us at each other’s throats. We are completely blind in the mire.
“If we have no Peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” Mother Teresa
We have learned nothing from each other. We still look at race, sex, culture and the way people live their own lives as something that is a personal attack on our well being. We are destroying where we live and getting further away from what really matters. Us. Humans. People. Instead of learning from it and growing from it. We fear it and seem to be running from it
What will we do if and when we get to Mars? We will destroy it just as fast if not faster than we destroyed Earth because we learned nothing.
We are not robots with nuts and bolts that can be adjusted to do and think. We are humans with hearts and souls that bleed and feel. You want the life for you and your family that everyone deserves for their life and their family. You are not special. You are not chosen. I don’t care about your status and your bank account. We are equal. We are one race that loves, works and walks this Earth for a short time. Every man, woman, and child deserve the best of it.
We’re here together folks and we need to learn to work side by side or it’s not going to get better. Right now it seems like it’s getting worse and it scares the hell out of me. What scares the hell out of me, even more, is that it doesn’t seem to be scaring anybody else.
