Despite all the unconscionable things which are going on to strip people of their ability to be compassionate toward each other, we all keep helping one another anyway.
It is a normal part of human life, continuing to take care of each other in ways which allow us to live better.
Using the tools of the past to maintain and improve life is proving very challenging.
Even new tools appear to have benefits in only some of the essential directions.
The deep connection we all have to each other is something I feel we are beginning to miss in more and more acute ways.
Since so many our communication and discussion skills are eroding, we will have to build these back person by person.
The people I am involved with day to day feel this as well, and we appreciate the opportunities we have to get together and share things we have in common.
We enjoy creating beautiful things, sharing food at our meetings, sharing patterns and techniques for creating more beautiful things with each other.
These simple ways of communicating indicate that we care for each other, a vital feeling.
I appreciate getting to know people with similar interests over longer distances, through the internet.
Discussions about events, skills, and different approaches are valuable and enriching.
I have no doubt that this normal human tendency to care about one another will be the long-term guiding principle of our society.
