One of the most puzzling things about humans is our preference for being right in our opinions over being happy in our daily lives. And, having to be right is, literally, the thing keeping us from being happy.
We have created a society of terrorists. We have put a gun in the hands of everyone who has a grudge.
The monologue is endless in our minds. We attach ourselves to problems that we make up and then we forget we made them up.

Where we really know we are one is in our connection to each other through the Universal Mind. It is a high state of possibility. Join me in this experiment. Please, just this once.
Know Thyself, And to thine own self be true. Have you thought about what is most important to you. If not, then maybe it is time.
