In my short experience on this planet, I have discovered that all humans seem to have two things in common.
1. We all want what we want.
2. We all don’t want what we don’t want.
Now, humans are complex creatures and what one individual wants and doesn’t want can vary infinitely from what another individual wants and doesn’t want.
We are all motivated by something… or many things. Which also varies from one person to the next. Not everyone is motivated by the same things.
Wouldn’t it be cool if we could acknowledge that we’re all different, yet despite our differences, we were still able to coexist peacefully while pursuing our own desires and letting others pursue their desires? Understanding that we don’t necessarily have to share the same likes and dislikes with others to get along with them.
The trouble seems to come when individual humans decide that everyone should have the same point of view as they do, and those who don’t share the same views are wrong and need to change.
Frankly, this is an insane way to coexist on a planet of infinite personalities and individual experiences. How can one person expect seven billion people to agree with their perspective, and then, when they don’t agree, get angry and throw a tantrum?
Everyone is different. It’s not a good thing or a bad thing. It’s just a fact. Why are people so quick to adopt an ‘us versus them’ mentality? So, instead of seeking compromises and wise solutions on how to live peacefully with others (like mature, rational beings) it seems that we’d rather raise our swords, voices, banners, facebook statuses, ect… and go to war. And in the name of ‘peace’, no less. Lol, it’s all insane!
And funny thing is… it’s all orchestrated and designed. Research: “How to control large populations of people”, and you will get an idea of why the world is as backwards as it is. The human mind is easily controlled and influenced if one does not make an effort to question themselves on a regular basis and become aware of why they do what they do and why they feel the way they feel. Fun stuff, being controlled… and without ever realizing it.
Ahh, tis a lovely gift to be able to see the Big Picture. Doesn’t make my life much easier, though. Actually, it may make it more difficult, lol. But whatever, I didn’t choose it… I just deal with it. And share it when I feel like it. 🙂
