“I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is love of truth, light and peace. When you are in that place, you and I are in that place in me. We are one.”
We are one. We are connected to each other by 7 other individuals. Every other day I meet someone whom I have a mutual friend with. And that mutual friend travels to another location on earth and connects with other people. My relatives in Chicago, Ohio, Minnesota and Spain have all connected with me and other individuals I will never meet in my life. And most of all my large family in the Philippines have connected to World War 2 veterans, farmers, Spanish elites, Japanese soldiers…Truth is, we are all responsible for each other. By how we choose our actions, we choose how society should act. By choosing ourselves in fullfilling an emotional or logical duty we intend others to do the same. It’s the philosophy of Jean Paul Sartre, and it has become my philosophy as well. Granted, in being idle, in not choosing, that too is our choice. But not every choice we make will be the perfect choice for all mankind. Hence, the hiarchey society has formed to segregate ourselves. It has it’s functions tho…But just know, that we are human. We are bound to make mistakes. Surrounding yourself with good energy is the only way to uplift yourself. As the cliche goes “no man is an island.”
I don’t get individuals that go to mass and not be genuinely kind to others. Isn’t the point of religion to set good morals? To treat others how you would want to be treated? Unfortunately, that has all died. It is up to you, to cause a wave of positive energy.
