“Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?”~~Marcus Aurelius
OUCH. I don’t have to ask myself; it just comes glaringly and painfully to the forefront. Only wish I’ve remembered this earlier while conversing with a friend. As Jimmy Dean once said, “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but, I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” I can’t take back what’s been said, but, I must think before I speak negatively. Here’s a MUST SEE 4-minute poetic video Why I Think This World Should End—about who we are, who we were, and who we should be–went VIRAL all over cyberspace since beginning of the week. You may disagree with part or whole thought-provoking message. The world, indeed, is more technically advanced than any time. We have a longer life span than any other time in history. I have the world at my finger tips. It’s just up to me if I want to grab it or not.
