Firmament, Feeling, Faceless

INRIP-TWIT-QUOTE-20180218-FirmamentFeelingFaceless

What does your Firmament consist of? For some it is on that which is within. For most is our family and friends. For a blessed few it is exploration-Free Thinking; travel-cultural exchange; open eyes-open minds. None of us however come close to understanding the vastness that our firmament is part of, all the peoples, all the world, all the universe. The humanity and in-humanity.

Most live in our Feelings of what the world, our firmament is. These feelings have been shaped by our culture, our primaries; family and friends, cities, counties, states and countries, sub-groups of the whole.

We are limited by our experience and exposure, making rash, sometimes bigoted and unfounded decisions about the larger firmament of our planet and all of its’ peoples without any true knowledge obtained. Mostly it based in fears and segregation.

With Modernity and its technology, we can no longer look into a Faceless people in a distant land emotionless, unless there is no humanity nurtured with us. That person has been suppressed within us by oppressive, closed minded and bigoted authorities in our lives.

Turning our heads or burying them in the sand is no longer an option. Building walls is no longer and option. War is no longer an option, unless we choose not to change our Feelings and remain in our shells segregated from humanity at large.

Our options, now, are: diplomacy, understanding, empathy and love. Without seeing the worlds faces we not only deny their humanity but also our own.

Truth, Today, Tomorrow

INRIP-TWIT-QUOTE-20170321-TruthTodayTomorrow

Each of us have truth, the experience of life that you have come from. It is unescapable. It is a place that began out of your control. Where, when, what, who and often why are elements of life that as children we are thrust into.

When you were born you are placed in a historical point you can not change. Where you were born decides the culture you will be raised to believe and be grounded in. What events happen are in general out of  your control as the world is large and chaotic.

From these you stand today as a person affected by each of these. Much of what you believe, your perspective is trained into you by your surroundings. Who you are today may be engrained. But it is not unchangeable. Who you are, today, you can change to be something different tomorrow.

Why would you want to change? In this moment, today,  are you Happy? Sad? Loving? Hating? The elements you are in do not matter. It is your comprehension and questioning of the thoughts that shape the who and open you to the possibilities of why?

When today you question the why, you open up endless possibilities for your tomorrow.
