You ARE the world now my child
One of the interesting reflections that has really been sitting with me is on the kind of world we live in. I realized that up until this point, I always just looked at the world as a machine or something ‘out there’ which I’ll just have to manage in. Now, I’m beginning to see how as my generation gets into their prime working days, we actually ARE the world. We are the ones defining policies and setting moral standards at work, government, etc. My individual decisions on how to live my life now set the stage for others. If I choose to promote being a selfish b*stard, then I have just created a part of the world that way. All those that interact with me will experience that – but if I selflessly give of myself, then a part of the world really becomes that. You ARE now the world my children, what will you choose to do with it? It’s a great impetus to action and responsibility. The world is exactly what we make of it what did I help make it today?
