Have read this quote and it nudged me to thinking ........
"We do not see things as they are.
We see them as we are."Info: The Talmud (Hebrew for “study”) is one of the central works of the Jewish people.

Let's if that is true.....
We read the newspaper and see the world and the bigger life lived out there. We read about killings, kidnappings, abuses, cheaters, conflicts and wars, etc. and too on the other side of the spectrum the do-gooders. We react to whatever catches our eyes, mind, and heart. In total, from what we have experienced in our lives are formed or shaped our personal insights, perceptions, beliefs, feelings, emotions, the presence or absence of understanding and compassion, or the strength or lack of religion. These naturally influence or dictate how we see the events of the world... or of the parade of people before us... or on matters of heaven and hell... or of life in general. We operate off this foundation and which defines our reactions or responses to that external world of which we see.
You may be pissed off at the world's chaotic and messy events.... because you believe in order. As I myself would see the world coming to an awakening which could bring it to hope for a better world... because I believe in hope. We separately and collectively in our respective reactions and responses see the world as WE ARE. A person of order and a person of hope.
These define our responses to and towards our external world.
I think I have learned something here.
:-) Have a good day, folks! Blessings await you.
