To look at truth from one side is to have an image of truth.
To look at truth from many side is to have truth within.
I enjoyed reading this. You bring up important points. I agree, we evolved because of our ability to cooperate with each other. This is something pertinent to today. Cooperation and recognition of the unity of all beings is what will allow life to continue on Earth. If we maintain an ‘us versus them’ outlook it is to the detriment of the entire planet.
You’re referring primarily to the “Beyond Tribalism” post I think. I agree with you. We are still “hard wired” into an us vs. them mentality, and it is to the detriment of the planet, as well as humanity. I think it underlies many of the significant problems we experience today, including poverty, crime, corruption, environmental problems, etc. Cooperation and recognition of the unity of all beings is extremely important, but we also need to be willing to look at our “dark side”, the us vs. them mentality, and be willing to be with this darkness; accepting it’s existence even while declining to be ruled by it. Imagine if we all embraced that . . . life on this planet could be wonderful!
