“Imagine what it would be like to live in a world where you are more concerned about what you have to offer than what you have to hide.” ~Unknown
This is a very powerful quote. It asks us to imagine a world very different from the one many of us live in.
It’s easy to think of the world as becoming more dangerous with threats of terrorism engulfing our societies.Dangers posed by rising crime rates in our cities and pictures we see on TV of violence on all corners of the world. That same world is more connected than before, more information and breakthrough in technology made possible by collaboration across cultures.
So which world do you see?? One where you chose to , “Connect, understand and accept or one where you ‘protect, defend, and resist.”
In the end, it all comes down to a matter of choice. Each of us can choose to be reactive and at the mercy of a world that appears threatening, or we can choose to be open to life and its remarkable possibilities. We can be defensive and protective, or we can live with a new spring in our step and spirit, eyes that truly see, ears that really hear, and a heart that can feel the wonder and celebrate the magnificent mystery that is life.
