I was almost convinced that I will not write yet another blog. As I meditate, I evolve, and I see through what drives me to do things. Writing blogs is usually when I get an insight, and I am excited.
This will be a special heart felt piece. One thing I have learned from my experience in life is, life is what you make of it. Humanity has made progress in patches. There have been dark phases. We are at a point where we have all the necessary tools and capacity to understand each other more than ever before. To all of us open hearts, who deep inside want to open up and want to meet and live with people of different kinds, there has never been a better time. You have to trust your instincts. Stick together. And yes this is the tough part, be compassionate towards those who do not see the world the same way as you do. This is not easy. Remember deep down we are not that different. We have similar emotions. At the end of the day, we all want to feel life, feel connected.
It is very easy to be reactive. But then nothing new will come out. We will be stuck in a cycle of hate. But if you give yourself and others some space, you will notice the capacity to proactively be constructive. Inclusiveness and love of life is just as much a fundamental human emotion, as fear, hate and pessimism. Sometimes you meet people who are not ready for inclusiveness. Give them space. Focus on what gives you real happiness. Find people who share your openness. Find things to do which makes you connected with people and nature.
And yes, meditate if you can.
