Let there be Light 2017: No 14
Martin Luther King Jr said “All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.”
I’ve always felt that the two underlying needs within each of us is to feel like we are making progress and that we are contributing purposefully to something bigger than our own meagre selves.
Recently and for the first time I’ve begun to question whether as a species we are still making net progress. Of course, there are lots of technological innovations making so much more possible than we ever dreamed. But, on the other hand we have regressed from an interdependent mindset, societies are more gripped with blame and hatred of others, and selfishness now seems to be trumping kindness as a better way to be.
Perhaps this T Shirt says it all? Time for a reset.
