There is a saying – if you’re living in a glass house, don’t throw no stones. In other words, nobody is perfect. Remember that before criticizing another. However, this time, the glass house signifies the invisible bounds of life that we keep running into without considering the option of taking a different route. Instead of walking through the door, we walk into walls. Glass walls unseen can be uncomfortable, feeling like a stop sign; not painful enough to shout, “go another way!”. Instead, we hit the same walls over and over again. We may hit our heads sometimes, a leg, an arm so subtly, so often, that we become immune to the effect. Consequently; the experiences can be easily ignored and embraced as normal when they occur often enough. We then recognize the sameness similarly to how one might feel a little dehydrate every and not drink more liquids to prevent reoccurance.
What if… instead of hitting the same walls constantly, we walked differently? What if… we recognized the paths we so often cover are the same ones taken each time as if we’re in a time warp? What if, instead of seeing conflict has been around since history has been telling stories, we recognized the opportunity to agree? What if, instead of seeing contradictions as differences, we choose to see opportunities to piece together assets for growth?
What if, we recognized the connection of us to all and saw that all separation are tangents? Meaning our themes, (or tangents), become new focuses, new opportunities for getting off track. Often, we do not realize we are walking away from our intended goal, because we think we can see the way. And we walk this way over and over allowing the circle to continue. This is similar to how our conversations, comparisons and contemplations run paths of predictability. Notice also how often we place blame on whatever and whoever is choice at the time; change waits patiently.
The option to empower each other, if only because it feels good and it helps one empower self, is always available. We can work together reaching pass the invisible glass separating us through assumptions and opinions, many of which are acquired. Yes, we can.
