I would change one model: the idea that you can’t know great love and happiness without dislike and sadness. I understand its necessity in our universe, but maybe it was a mistake. Everyone makes them. Even the Higher Beings that so many people believe created the universe, right? Or do most people really believe that their God, Mohammad, Supreme Being of whatever ilk, is perfect?
Wait. That’s it! That’s the leap of faith, the big difference. Religious people believe their deity is perfect. There isn’t a single decision made while creating the whole of the universe that they may not have thought out completely.
Please don’t get me wrong. I’m an agnostic who lives to be proven wrong. I yearn to have the confidence of faith. And I highly respect those who do. (Most of them.) Still, to appreciate each other more and more because we understand loss seems cruel. Explain the benefit of war? Rhetorical.
We all have imperfections. Why does it have to be that so many judge others by them rather than the good and great things people put out into the universe?
Yes, I sound naive, But I’m not. I know without question that with good comes bad. But wouldn’t it be nice if “bad” didn’t stick around. We just learned from it, and we all left it behind?
Our country is at paralyzing odds that are often discussed and enabled under the umbrella of Christianity. It is unquestionably taking a terrible toll. Truly, both political parties have to agree with that, don’t they?
Evolution and revolution have changed things up. Businesses that succeed are nimble enough to change models. After all, we live life fundamentally different than we did a decade ago.
Couldn’t we just agree on a new perspective about this one love-hate dichotomy to enhance everyones’ lives?
