The “information age” has pulled society into the intellect and the pace of life has lessened our respect for quiet, for reflection. As a result, we are divided by beliefs into rigid groups, or separated from family members, friends and colleagues by the ideas we like. Humanity feels fractured. We can reconnect with the understanding that the gift of thought we all have — to create our own ideas from the energy of life and then see them as real, allows us to experience our thinking, but recognizing the gift and knowing we all think of different things and everyone’s reality is unique, is what makes us interesting to each other, not locked in conflict. The common ground is that we think, not what we think.
