'IMAGINE' "Imagine if people could see through the eyes of their fellow man with an open mind. Experience their emotions, feel their fears, and hear their most intimate thoughts without judgment or condemnation. If this was possible would we still have conflict, terrorism, and wars? Could we find a common ground? Could our contempt turn into understanding?
Look at our world, it is divided by boarders, politics, and religion. It is influenced by symbols, fueled by ignorance, and motivated by greed. It's filled with sheep looking for a shepherd because their own identity has vanished. People are so lost and hollow that they have forgotten what fills that gap and brings them back from being adrift is love.
We as a people have so much we could share with and learn from each other. Imagine if we all put aside these man made fabrications of division's that have split us, the human race, into these artificial cultures. A civilization that has become based on arbitrary, superficial characteristics rather than the natural, organic relationships that reveal we are all one with each other, one with our environment, and one within this Earth. If we could just open our eyes and realize that we should be fighting along side each other to heal, not wage war against each other to destroy.
These divisions have brought to this world starvation, genocide, even the pollution of the air, water, and land that WE ALL share. These are things that effect everyone of us not just those that we perceive as enemies or threats to our way of life.
Our way should be life, not the destruction of it...Imagine if people could see that." ~Matthew C.
