In recent conversations I had with people around the world, regarding my latest posts on education and economy, I encounter a lot of reactions that express frustration and lack of belief regarding a possible change. Many people correctly pointed out, that the system of our days brings individuals to feels invisible, that the poor by themselves do not have the power required in front of the rich and that the system is so strong an rooted in our society, that talking about the creation of a real change is not realistic.
I notices, that the majority of the people that have those opinion are expressing themselves with for fear and hatred. They are frustrated, concern about the general growing discrimination and are tired of fighting fights they find unwinnable. Unfortunately, I understand them completely.
The reality we are living in, does not look very bright for the masses. The rich get richer while the poor stay the same, the educational system is degrading as the teachers do not have the tools and support needed to make a better job, the income of the majority of the people do not allow them to live distantly while the taxes and the cooperation’s profit rise, our governments are do busy in promoting their self interest that they do not have the time male take case of their citizens and racism is growing as people become lost and afraid in their own existence.
The reality we are living in these days is complicated. A realistic approach can very easily bring people to despair and pessimism. It is true, something is very wrong in the way we are living today. From the other side, looking back on the history of our kind, in many cases we had to arrive to a certain extreme before we manage to get up and create a real change that actually counts.
To be honest, I find that it is not our government that is maintaining our suffering (even if it true they are helping), it is our mentality and the way we choose to see life and the action we take every day. It is true that the educational system of our days is depressive, that the media is pushing on us propaganda’s of fear and separation and that the economical system we are taking part of is not helping us become wealthier neither happier. But it is us, each one of us individually, that decide to wake up every day and see the life in the way we do.
We are led by a philosophy based on values of fear and separation, which will inevitably create a general feeling of terror and misery. we are busy looking and searching what is wrong and different, instead of parsing and reinforcing what we have in common and what make us better. We are busy, constantly concentrating on out past with frustration, fear and anger. Instead of looking up to our future with hope, self determination and wish for a better world. As I wrote in a different post, it is not how many time we felt that matter, it is how fast and motivated we get up.
The idea of separating the masses for the sake of control exists for thousands of years. It is not longer relevant in an era in which we develop the capacity to communicated, share and see each other world wide. It is time to group and help each other! Lets concentrate in grouping ourselves with people we like and find things in common with. instead of being busy avoiding the people we dislike and feel threaten by. It is by being an active part of our society that we will able to start a change. Hate and fear is weakening us and teaching us how to be alone in a dark corner of despair.
We are better than what they teach us, and more powerful than what they would like us to believe. Searching our similarities is the key for real and meaningful relationship. The path is hard and full of people that are to tired and weak to understand we can create a better world. Only by waking up every morning and giving a personal example, ignorance will get the courage needed to wish to learn and change.
How do you feel it in your life, are you tired of being afraid and angry? Please share with me your opinion.
Awareness and open conversation are the key for the creation of a better world.
