Polar Symbiosis

Why does it seem that each generation has the same issues in their face… like gender issues or race issues?

Is it just because we have nothing better to do than disrespect anyone else? Is it part of some conspiracy to marginalize some group?

Do people consciously reject some other ‘group’ as a whole or just as an idea?

In American their law patterns mention ‘innocent until proved guilty’ and yet in practice it is a very hard assumption for most all people. Soon as some social objection comes forth, with no real evidence, a person then suffers the rude comments of all who encounter their ordeal. There is no asking for more information from the person, but so many articles and tweets chastise and pontificate otherwise.

Is it that we really have no lives of our own?

Are people so busy sticking their nose in to others lives, and assuming the worst of other people that they are truly parasites?

What thrill does this give?

What is drawn from the host that makes it so addictive?

It is even symbiotic?

Making History

“Love is our most unifying and empowering common spiritual denominator. The more we ignore its potential to bring greater balance and deeper meaning to human existence, the more likely we are to continue to define history as one long inglorious record of man’s inhumanity to man.” ~ Aberihani

Handle with Care

A broken doll, symbol of a broken child

“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.” ~ Mitch Albom

A Measure in Life

“It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement… that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.” ~  Sigmund Freud

Hu-manity by the Numbers

“Show me a man or a woman alone and I’ll show you a saint.

lovers

Give me two and they’ll fall in love.

Give me three and they’ll invent the charming thing we call ‘society’.

Give me four and they’ll build a pyramid. outcast

Give me five and they’ll make one an outcast.

Give me six and they’ll reinvent prejudice.

Give me seven and in seven years they’ll reinvent warfare.

Man may have been made in the image of God, but human society was made in the image of His opposite number, and is always trying to get back home.”

~  Stephen King
