7.1 Billion Candles

The same basic issues and struggles have reoccurred throughout the entirety of human history, each time, dressed up differently. Most people, caught up in the seemingly unique current of their era, fail to see the pattern. I believe the collective solutions to the profound trials our race faces are to be found deep within the souls of each individual, not the external world. It is by looking within that we start to see we are connected. Change starts with each of us. I’ve said this many times before: we are one tribe; we go forward together or not at all. Do not let borders, race, or religion convince you otherwise. We find ourselves blindly subject to one of the oldest control methods that exists: divide and conquer. By encouraging us to focus on our differences instead of what connects us, the powers that be trick us into subjugating ourselves while the corporate world profits off of all the unique niches that arise from our differences. The only real sustainable solution starts with the individual. You, me, our friends, family, and coworkers must find the fire within and then use it to help light the fire in others, person by person, until the whole world is illuminated. This will take patience, tremendous strength, and understanding because we need to take responsibility for not only ourselves but each other so that no one gets left behind. We must show the greatest compassion to our weakest and most troubled links. It’s truly as simple as making small acts of kindness a part of your everyday routine. All it takes is being adding a little more humanity to everything you do. That’s it. There are no quick and easy solutions. There are no short cuts. There is no fast track. You cannot cut corners in this task. Let’s work tirelessly, together, and get it done.
