It’s been a challenging world in recent years, trust of powers, authorities and each other are arguably the lowest I’ve witnessed in my lifetime thus far.
Truth is becoming an increasingly rare quality, even among our own friends and family.
Truth is a social requirement, it forms the foundations of trust; another fading human quality. Without it, the fabric of our human society is in danger of imploding. Wars, famine, refugees and other needless man-made crises are driving wedges between once peaceful and united communities.
I don’t know about you dear reader, but I am fond of people who mean what they say, and say what they mean.
You just know where you stand with such people; however there’s a growing sense that such people are few and far between.
As a result, more of us choose to remain in our ‘personal bubble’ and absorb sceptical info from the media, or choose to live in a digital world, where you can delete or add people with relatively minimal consequences, or our young stepping out of their homes with knives and other tools of destruction, just as many of us would grab our phones before leaving our respective abodes.
But how do we entrench and nurture truth and trust?
Well one way, is to do what toddlers do… Be open, less judgemental, choose to live in the moment, live la Vida Loca, smile more, cry more, giggle more, dance more, instinctively learn different languages, be curious, read more, play more.
As an adult, we can stop over thinking, travel more and be more inquisitive about each other, talk to strangers more, embrace transformational change, be courteous and conform to positive social behaviours.
All the above requires personal application however, yes only positive human interaction can develop a much-needed rich culture of trust and truth between us all.
One more thing, we also need leaders of people, positive role models, people who can positively inspire our young; they are our future after all right?
I’m doing my bit for the cause, I invite you to do the same.
The opposite of this is well… TRUMP WORLD, FAKE NEWS, TERRORISM, ALTERNATIVE FACTS, HUMAN TRAFFICKING the very real risk of GLOBAL DESTRUCTION as a result of man-made choices and actions.
OK, let’s end on a positive note, IT’S NEVER TOO LATE!
