After many years of observation and contemplation, as my candle flickers preparing its entry into darkness, I remember fondly how my fellow human has and continues to support me through hardship. I can hear the cries of the faithful as they insist on including God as a supporter, but my primary basics are exclusively provided by my fellow human. Not that I cannot turn to an inner solace, but food, shelter, and physical comfort came and continue to come from other humans.
Yes, we can say that God provides this too but it is my fellow humans who found, gathered and helped me feed myself and guard me against tigers, and lions and bears!
We have helped and loved each other become 7.5 billion strong! How lovely is that! This could not have happened without humans co-operating with each other for the good of the all. It was not a solitary venture. Surprisingly, this has been achieved even though a huge part of humanity acts primitively and selfishly.
In times of tragedy, we now respond very quickly to each other's suffering. When someone is hurt, instantaneously, hearts join together to send comfort and protection. We have never lived as well. Even the ones who have less, are having more as we circulate the abundance.
Daily, the understanding of how we need each other grows. Certainly, we have problems that require solving but together, we valiantly continue to figure out solutions, together.
We can see evidence of this in the millions of books sharing valuable information the writing humans have gathered and recorded. We can see this in informational broadcasting as we deliver up-to-date world status to each other. We can see this as the various groups organize to solve the suffering resulting from a current tragedy.
While we focus on the negative, our fear neglects to remember something about humanity that we all take for granted. We love each other more often than not or it would have been impossible to have expanded our numbers to seven billion.
That does not change my frustration with the residue of competition and fear that is also present as we struggle and improve our working together. However, I never forget to include the other view that contains humanity's beauty. Some of us, understanding our reliance on each other, support and admire humanity's drive towards cooperation rather than competition. We believe it is our cooperation that makes us excellent. It is the dream with which we emerge that defines us Great. The dream of a dimension, where one's heart safe keeps the all and how the one is the heart of the all.
On this lonely planet, a tiny speck in a grand mysterious universe, I honor you, my fellow human.
Unfortunately, there are many who imprisoned and blinded by their fear, destroy what the more aware of us are trying to build.
It frustrates me but how does focusing on what I cannot change beneficial?
I focus therefore on the humans who keep believing in the dream, giving them force by adding my belief to theirs.
