As I lay in bed this morning, I was dreaming, and it was very vivid. To me, the human brain is an amazing piece of work.
I am able to envision many things, especially designing things. I can move parts around until they fit, including stories. Which brings me to my point.
In today's political and social environment, we are so easily manipulated and led to believe what our brains think is reasonable. Makes no difference whether it is correct or not, if it seems reasonable or possible, it can become truth. Unless you have a critical-thinking brain like mine. I dissect everything,
I don't have ideas that can't be changed.
I am open to new ideas all the time, as my philosophy is forever changing with the times. What I may have believed many years ago can change with the times, because the times change and you must adapt to the present or you will be left behind. With age comes wisdom.
I see the anger and hatred of pitting one race against another as a sign of weak minds and their thinking processes being manipulated by propaganda, meant to affect changes in society to benefit the ones in power in order to maintain that power. And many fall for it. Too many!
Yet you have the power to change, you simply refuse to use it. I cannot imagine how others think, because I am not capable of thinking with a closed mind.
But I know that even I have ingrained remnants of my past that guide parts of my life, like it or not. I simply try to override those thoughts if I can.
I was raised with little financial comfort (poor), so I am frugal. But I have finally overcome most of that and finally lead a comfortable life in my skin.
If nothing else should stick, remember this. None of us have any choice to whom and to what circumstances we are born into. But strip off the skin and it's color and we are all the same! Every single one of us! We are humans ! To berate any of us, we are berating ourselves.
You can change if you really want to, but many are too comfortable in their anger to change. For that, I feel sorry for you, because you have no idea what you are missing. Good friendships, interesting life stories, opportunities. Think about it!
May peace be with you in your path through life and may you find it in your life to love others for who they are, not what they look like!
BLUE TSUNAMI 2020!
