Communication is it! That is the only reward one can earn from living. Being able to look over at the guy next to you and say, “HELLO!”
No amount of money, or gold, or N95 masks, or hand-sanitizer or toilet paper will ever make you free, or offer you real security- only the freedom to communicate, exchange ideas and gain wisdom to make this place a better place for all. That’s the only freedom and security that is available to any of us. And we have to create it! It simply can NOT be given to us.
I think it was Ben Franklin who said, “Anyone who would give up his freedom for security deserves neither!”
Interesting thought, hmm?
The time for the Golden Age of Wisdom is now, if only because it is vitally necessary if any of us is to survive. And what will survival look like?
Will we be freer to communicate, freer to ponder and exchange ideas, freer to live in a world that suits each of us, and not one that suits the world. Seriously, what will that Golden Age of Wisdom look like? What will the world around us look like when someone who is smarter, or richer, or wiser than any of us says it’s all safe? And do you really think there is anyone who is smarter, or richer, or wiser than you; especially when it comes to you and those you love?
The time for wisdom is now.
To me, there is no other joy or happiness in life than the pursuit and attainment of wisdom through communication- communication to bring ideas to life, and action to put them to use for the betterment of mankind.
The greatest technological breakthrough began around 10,000 years ago when one caveman said, “Hello” to another caveman, and that caveman said, “Hello” back. In doing so each caveman said, “I see you, and yes the world still exists!” That was the beginning of life. It’s what created life and it is what will keep life and all that is alive continuing to live! COMMUNICATION!
As Dr. Seuss once said, “You have brains in the head. Feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose!”
Will you pursue wisdom, or just lay there and wait for someone to tell you it’s okay for you to be you, again?
