    What is one thing you wish more people would do, and why?

    For me, it would be kindness. So many people are ruthless and unkind. They get angry quickly and impolite. Kindness should be spread everywhere, everyday.

    When they see a hand reaching out take a hold of it; show some love. I wish more people would see someones problem as their own . Stop saying it's not my problem. Just speaking to someone who looks down and out could save a life. Speaking to someone you don't now says I recognize you as alive, as a human, as an important life.That person just might be thinking no one cares and could be on the verge of giving up on life.This would take so little time and effort. I wish more people would show care and concern for their fellow man or woman.

      Really well said Penny. Thank you for this answer smile People have become so cold and aloof in this world, nothing moves them anymore until they themselves face the same problem. Then those same people expect empathy from others.

    I wish more people would actually LISTEN to what is said by another person. They may learn something and, heaven forbid, they may learn facts. I think if a person feels LISTENED to, he is more to consider that you're fairl

    On the other hand, when they are listening, instead of just biding their time until it is their turn to speak, I would just wish that they'd listen with the intent of UNDERSTANDING what is being said.

    That might eventually mean that we might have a mature, adult, dialog which meant something. Changing your mind is not a crime or sin, but it can open you up to a whole new way of thinking that you didn't appreciate. It isn't human nature, however, to admit that you've changed your mind on something. The 'I'm right, you are wrong, not completely right, not completely wrong' adage, comes into play here.

    One example is political discourse; in this country, politics has so divided our country that people cannot and will not often be FRIENDS with someone who shared opposing political views. In the past,differences liked that used to spark lively and intelligent debate. These days, there is no such thing as debate or discussion and the desire/knwn Immediately, the name calling begins and we adults look like immature children who will take our toys and play in our own sandbox!

    I wish people would talk normally face to face instead of just texting and emailing. I wish that people from different parts of the world would get connected and become friends no matter what colour they are. I wish that children will be listened to by parents instead of being fobbed off with expensive toys that turn them into monsters. I wish that the world will have peace instead of wars happening everywhere. I wish for all good things to happen but only God knows.

      "I wish that children will be listened to by parents instead of being fobbed off with expensive toys that turn them into monsters." Are you a child? Do you notice this? Do other children notice this?

    I wish more people would take responsibility for their actions or inaction. People often spend a lot of time blaming others and making excuses. A person eats huge helpings of dessert and does not exercise. He says he is overweight because of his genetics. It has nothing to do with his habits, according to him. A person has habits that make it really difficult for him to fall asleep. He does the opposite of what a person should do to have a good night's sleep. Instead of fixing the problem he takes strong sleeping pills.

    So many people give up control by blaming others or outside forces. When you take responsibility for your thoughts and actions you have more control.

    Kindness is an inner quality, but it needs the input of prayer and selfless service. Human nature cannot grow and does not grow without soulful and selfless service.  I always see everything, whatever it is, from the standpoint of the Divine. Kindness does not just appear, it is a quality developed through a life of prayer and meditation. Otherwise everyone would have it.

    Service widens our hearts and makes us receptive to the Higher Forces that are here in abundance.

    Still, a life of spiritual discipline is crucial to encourage kindness, love, mercy, tolerance ....

    I would encourage prayer both verbal and interior, in the early hours of the morning. This will open us to God's Light which we will take to work while on the buses, trains, in the traffic jams and so forth. Grace widens our hearts and inspires empathy for our fellow man. This supreme gift from God comes through a heart made selfless by countless acts of prayer and selfless service.

    It helps considerably for us to remember that we are Temples or instruments, just like all scriptures tell us, and that God is always in charge, not us. I bid you much peace.
