Life As It Should Be
We can rant and rave about our situation, their situation, or situations not even on our horizon. But wishing it so, wishing it wasn't, and wishing upon a star does nothing to void the reality that each and everyone of us wakes up to everyday.
Because it seems none of us are entirely at peace with our stations in Life, we form clubs, organizations, and gangs to protect what we have or to take what they have. As if having what they have will somehow make us like ourselves more. The group dynamic more often than not just increases the envy, disdain and fear others have for us and can become what we feed on. I have found any substantial changes in my own reality are not the result of group efforts, but results of my own efforts and the luck of the draw. Group Hope often sets us up for Group Disappointment. And Group Fear more often than not is self fulfilling.
Until we can steer our self interest in the same general direction, the hate, discontent and disconnect many of us harbor will continue to result in what we have.
Not sure where that came from. Guess I should not have watched the news yesterday.
