Toward a Civil and Sane World

Liberty is the soul’s right to breathe, and when it cannot take a long breath laws are girded too tight. Without liberty, man is a syncope. > — Henry Ward Beecher [^Rev. Henry Ward Beecher.

“Let your brilliance be expressed through kindness. If you can be kind to people, you will be a genius in this world.” If we could all just realize this brilliance, what a wonderful world it could be. Thank you , Bryant.

I wish that people had the same lust for self, for owning of self than they do for materialism. Knowing yourself, owning your truth, living in your truth is our only real possession. Nothing else. People can feel a void within. They don't know what they are missing or what is wrong. They try to fill that void with the acquisition of things, of money, of status. Because this will never fill their void, the cycle never ends. It is a cycle of perpetual lack, perpetual dissatisfaction, perpetual unhappiness. This is a tragic truth:"Kindness is seen as weakness and intelligence worshiped, even when that intelligence allows unfathomable injustice and suffering to occur under its smart watch." An indicator of how perverse and twisted our values have become. I couldn't agree more: "There is no greater intelligence than kindness and empathy. Kindness is the supreme intelligence." If I would want to be known for anything it would be to be known for my kindness for my good heart. This is a powerful and true saying:"Wish for the happiness of your enemies, for if they are happy, they are your enemy no more." Yes, we must take the time, invest the time to know self. But, we must also take the time to know one another. I love this:"Meeting another human is always a sacred event." How beautiful it would be if people looked at encountering another human this way. How much the world would change. Yes, we must strip away everyone else's ideas of what we are and what we should be and return to self. Beautiful. Thank you, Bryant. ❤️
