How to achieve world peace?
this old village
in a world of one colour
the cicada’s cry
We need to move on from old thoughts, old patterns, old worn beliefs that we consider comfortable and move beyond our monochrome homogenised worlds that pit one absolute against others.
It’s time to embrace the kaleidoscope of humanity and revel in our differences, appreciate and honour them, whilst finding the commonalities that bind us together. Unity in diversity.
And we must listen to the cries of those that cut through. We must work to comfort, support and assist those in need, those in pain. Because it’s far too easy to suddenly become the displaced, the ostracised, the maligned, the hated, the ‘other’ because we allowed the distress of others to go unheeded, unheard, undefended.
We are first and foremost a single tribe. Until we work from that most basic of premises, there will always be one side against another.
Time to leave the old village behind and build a new one where everyone is welcome.
