WHAT we think and feel affects other people and we, in turn, are affected by others’ thoughts and actions.
Every action touches on some chord that will vibrate through eternity.
Aristotle said we always have to choose between reality and illusion. Changeless reality was always “there to be accepted’’ but could only dawn on an unclouded mind.
Malcolm Gladwell, in his book The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, investigated how an idea or behaviour moves from the edges of society to broad acceptance. Along the way, there is a tipping point that transforms a minority perception to the embrace of the majority.
Our collective sense of peace and justice for all has clearly not yet reached the tipping point. But that doesn’t mean it cannot.
The universe is still full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
