April 08, 2010 - Our Thinking




Our Thinking

The way the world should be
Is not often what we find
But do we try to change what is
Among humankind

When it comes to acceptance
Of what goes against our grain
Some find it such an easy task
  Never trying to refrain

Ignoring someone's suffering
Is an easy path that many of us find
We'd rather turn our heads
Than give a minute of our time

I truly do believe
That if we wish to rearrange
What is, to what should be
Our thinking must be changed

It's true allowing ourselves to Awaken to Truth, starts with going within to discover the truth within..
and then to see the connection that we all have to one another.. will certainly change our perception..
Such an important point Neva.. thanks for putting it out there!
