We are experiencing massive friction in the world right now. Fighting between groups is rooted in a need for control, in an effort to make other people conform to a particular societal and global world view.
Why do some human beings have such a need to make others conform to their consensual reality?
In some cases, individuals are insecure within themselves. They have not worked on making their own inner landscape solid, so they are constantly looking for external validation that they are okay. Then there are the personalities that enjoy controlling others simply because they derive pleasure from power.
Every problem comes down to solving the root cause. Humanity as a collective will have a real chance of positive evolution when humans overcome their need for control and conformity. It begins with each of us.
“I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.”
~ Rita Mae Brown
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
~ J. Krishnamurti
“It’s weird not to be weird.” ~ John Lennon
“Any fool can make a rule and any fool will mind it.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
~ John F. Kennedy

Josh, I so agree. Kindness is a tool we can each implement individually to help change the collective. Every positive act we initiate with another human being ripples outward. Thank you for reading.
