(I wrote this post in 2013 and it’s even more true for me today.)
I believe that the biggest problem facing the world is that there is far more pain, loneliness, and suffering than there is kindness.
I believe that as more people learn how interconnected we all are and get more aligned with the goodness within themselves, greater kindness in action will naturally occur.
Every act of kindness, and every person who learns of their interconnection and goodness, has the potential to ease much pain, loneliness, and suffering, so it is one of my goals to continue attempting to spread the word in every interaction I have.
Around the globe many millions of people are doing the same.
I don’t believe that it is a coincidence that the last four letters of the word “Humankind” spell the word “Kind.” The answer to so many of our ills is even in the description of ourselves. We just need to BE kind; to BE love in action.
We already know the solution. Now, much like the need to blanket the world with inoculations against terrible diseases, we need to keep spreading the light until the darkness of apathy, neglect, greed, and violence, have no place to hide and are eradicated.
Will total global success occur in my lifetime? No. But I believe that progress is being made every day.
The problems are huge and daunting, but I believe in the greatness of the spirit within humankind to continue to gradually overcome them.
