Only If Mankind Starts Using Its Heart


p10056

   Mankind has such great potential and could accomplish such amazing and wondrous things. We are such an adaptive and creative species that we have survived the ice age and countless wars, famines and earthly disasters. Only if we could focus our ingenuity and creativity in the direction of bettering our world and our species. Though we have knowledge and technologies we seem to lack the wisdom to use them for the common good of all life. We still seems to allow greed and the lust for power to stand in the way of the wondrous future that awaits us. We put more effort into creating weapons and promoting war than we do into discovering medical cures and furthering our research into the unknown. I understand the need to keep a nation secure and prepared for possible war and even though war is never a good thing it is a part of life. But some nations put almost all their resources into national defense and security without much debate. Then they seem more than willing to spend an unlimited amount of money on military projects and national security but spend nothing on the improvement on the quality of life for the citizens who are the source of all the money being spent. I  There should always be balance between protecting what you have and improving the quality in which one lives. What use is it to protect something if you let it rust and rot away?

  Seems though mankind has come along way and has grown from a child to a teenager, we still have allot of learning and growing up to do. The only fear I have is that we may wait till it is to late and we will bring our own destruction if not extinction to ourselves. I also see possible hope because of mankind’s ability to adapt and overcome, Our creativeness and our driving spirit may help us see the path we are on is not the best nor the only path before us. Only if mankind starts using its heart to guide its mind and its actions will we have a chance to continue as a species and a race. I hope it will not take a great catastrophe before we will come together and work for the common good of all nations and all life.

Enough Rambling For Now
