Every day each of us has an opportunity to turn away from our ego-driven lives and learn a lesson in #humility. The definition of humility is “freedom from pride or arrogance,” according to Merriam Webster. Each time we turn on the news we have the opportunity to see how pride and arrogance operate in negative ways all around us.
Every time someone decides his or her way is better than another human being, or that some humans or animals are more important than others; we experience the pride and arrogance that separates us as a nation.
Let’s forget about what separates us in politics for just a moment to recognize how the entire world is polarized to be better than, smarter than, and stronger than all of the other nations in the world. We are led to believe that the reason we “must” be stronger is for safety. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Yes, we need to stop dictators like Kim Yawn OOOn and any other dictator from killing and harming others. This, of course, takes force. Or does it? What stopped North Korea’s dictator recently from continuing to test his powerful death missiles seems to be a recent meeting of minds. What exactly was exchanged in that meeting between Pompeo and North Korea? Was it whose weapons are stronger or bigger? Or was there diplomacy used to help assuage Dictator Kim to put down his weapons?
I’d be very interested in knowing exactly what happened behind those closed doors. Perhaps, what we see in the news is a really all a big show or a play that was born of a secret negative society to make President Trump look stronger than he is. NO ONE really knows. If entire countries can think that a chemical attack on innocent children is people creating “fake news” to further their political ideations, then anything is possible in my mind.
How much of all of the governmental challenges of our nation is our personal problem to deal with and how much is your worry and concern actually helping the issues in politics?
What polarizes us as a community and country are strong, organic feelings that result in a combined voice of many. This unification is what calls us to a higher cause. We are not made stronger by polarizing our negativity and our truth to separate us from the rest of the world or society. We are made powerful by uniting with one another for a greater, more durable and positive cause.
I look at the world’s big causes right now and continue watching which ones are actually causing people to act and rise up in powerful oneness. The “me too” and the “children’s gun control” causes are the movements that are revealing dark lies and bringing light into our world to exposes and erradicate more darkness. The movements that separate us like White Supremacy and Religious rhetoric are only making the world polarized in a negative way.
One might argue that each are arguing for a cause and both have a right to an opinion. That might be true if one opinion didn’t harm people and the other liberate those harmed from abuse and murder. But, anyone who has eyes to see can see that humility and power can go hand in hand whenever the cause is just and is to protect the innocent and powerless.
