I hope to get the version of Augmanity that I consider the coolest around the globe soon. perhaps it will help us to answer the questions that we can’t really quantify with human beings, behaviors, and moods. as I go through some towns in the USA, I am struck by how upset, stressed, scared, and even angry people are. one part of me wonders “is it me that is seeing differently…noticing things that are from my perspective?” or, “people are just upset with life?”
you see it driving a car down the road, you see it in check in lines for buses, trains, and planes, you notice it in stores and public spaces. yesterday at the gym, for whatever reason I can’t understand why people think if they are using a machine and sitting on the seat watching videos on their mobiles, why they can’t comprehend sharing a machine?
perhaps inside the USA, we have somehow gotten to the spillover from the leaders and the granularity of self with social media where in real life people only want the world to be like them, yet, anything not in that vein is ostracized or has people getting angry.
I would love to understand the, “why?” as all I come up with is a thing at the root issue of pride, greed, envy, lust, gluttony and the other deadly sins. how often do you hear someone judging another or in ignorance not listening to another. yesterday I returned a guy's holy books I was reading and he said he didn't’ want them. it was then I had to realize, the guy has some real issues inside that I pray to get healed, but in the meantime, I am tired of all the religions, races, creeds and colors of man trying to rationalize how one is better or another is somehow repressed.
ever have a human come in your life that is upset with you, but after you get done replaying anything you could have done to them...you don't have any reason why they are so angry with you? tis an odd experience, no?
we are all human beings. I don't think God sees race, creed, color or religion. he sees part of his creation – all flawed, imperfect and out of whack these days listening to us all explain how we will fix the problems. does anyone else think that perhaps we might need a higher power to fix the problems with mankind on this planet? or will man's folly be he thinks he can fix it all by himself?
but alas, what is happening today, has been going on since the beginning of modern man. I don’t think the behaviors really change all that much over time, and perhaps that is why I get a bit sad some days when I see people angry and upset with everything. it is not a good space for a human to be, yet, you can’t really even talk to some folks as their mind seems to be wound up like a spring. you just hope they relax a bit before they do something stupid.
but this is the current human weather forecast I see in main street USA. I don’t think it is bad in Europe, or the people there are simply more conservative and understand how to get along better with things that are different.
all I can do Is simply continue on the path I am on, even though some days you have to look up to the sky and ask, “is this what you really wanted for humans to do with our time on this planet?”
interesting times, sad times, some happy times…but it feels like the world is getting wound too tight, and historically, people do dumb things and make bad mistakes when they are acting out of emotion than the peace one can have a carry inside their heart and soul.
have a great day…that is my 10 minutes of unedited brain ramble.
