Opposition or Reconciliation

The tendency to criticize, judge, oppose and condemn someone else’s thinking and action is becoming like a virulent poison infecting the political arena of certain countries, especially the United States. It is as if some members of society are only capable of seeing their own point of view and they assume it’s the only correct way of analysing a situation. Whereas, in reality, one can always only perceive outside what exists within one’s own awareness. The World Is as We Are.

One’s point of view is limited to the type of glasses one is wearing. If one is wearing red glasses, the world always appears as if tinted red whereas if one is wearing green glasses, the world appears to have a green hue. There is no absolute truth to anyone’s point of view because no one is privy to the full comprehension of any situation. One sees only a fragment and the rest of the picture remains hidden. Perception and knowledge differ in different levels of awareness. If we view a river from the summit of a mountain and view the same river from a plateau, our vision of the river will be different.

It is better to look for the good in people rather than denouncing them for their shortcomings. What we see, we become. The more we see bad in others, the more the bad increases in ourselves because what we put our attention grows stronger in our lives.

We cannot alter the events in the world, but we can change the way we respond to those events. We can respond in ways which add to the fear, anxiety and sadness in the world or we can respond with love, compassion and forgiveness. In this way, through empathetic thinking and action, we paint a brighter future picture of our world.

 Hi Barbara,

Thank you for your submission, but as per our guidelines, we will need at least 500 words of text as an article, and that does not count your bio. If you are interested in elaborating more, I would be glad to revisit it.
