Corrupting Society’s Divine Tissue

29 Aug

We who spend our lives in so-called First World countries have little idea how we got that way. We grow up in the lap of relative luxury and are not stimulated to question the luck of the birth lottery that had us being born where we were.

And as we grow up in that protected crucible, we seldom stop to question the system that gives us relative everything while millions more in other less privileged parts of our globe go without. Far from questioning, actually – we scramble frantically to carve out our little corner of paradise whee we can hunker down with families and fireplaces and frequent flyer miles in isolation so complete we rarely think about those little details like social injustice or economic imperialism.

In spite of giving a nod to the global imbalance through our sophisticated recycling programs, financial support to Third World charities and wholesome bike lanes, we don’t want to rock the boat that much. In fact, it’s safe to say the blame for our world’s social crises can be partly laid at out feet.

Corrupting Society’s Divine Tissue, today on Thinking with Somebody Else’s Head.

    Claudia speaks of a respite. A period of time to heal globally .. to perceive our existence of self, and that of our global community. Wow, count me in for that !

    “No one needs to prove his life to live it, but to live it well he must accept it. Therein lies the question: to accept, or not accept what we clearly perceive.”
    ~ Keppe, Glorification
