As I grow older I realize how truly diverse and complex our world truly is. I’m not speaking about nature and all of living creatures. That’s a marvel on its own. Rather my focus is on the people and the circumstances that come our way.
As a child you hear about black and white situations. You know there is right and wrong. Good and bad actions. You know, to a certain extent, that sadness and happines exist. Nevertheless, as the years go by and your eyes and ears are open wider, you notice the reality of it all.
Hate and love is all around us, everyday. In small acts and in big ones. Now more so than ever, we are able to connect with the world and see what’s happening all over the planet. Hate and love is everywhere.
Photo cred: ME! Isn’t this a beautiful plant? I had to take a picture of it 🙂
Even with a sharp exterior, these leaves need exactly the same as the softer ones.
I felt inspired to write about this because it’s hard for me (still) to believe how terrible we as humans can be, yet at the same time we are capable of such breathtaking love. This complexity of human beings is a wonder to me. And it makes me wonder about the circumstances that these “bad” people have had to overcome in order to become “these” people. What do they experience? How do they view the world around them? What triggers kindness and/or meanness?
So many questions and ideas. However, in the end, all that matters is how you, or each individual, treat the people and the world around you. That’s everything we can control. And that small action counts. Believe me.
