Monday Musings : Feeding the Monster

The recent terroristic attacks throughout the world has brought racism to another level. There is not a day that passes by where we do not read or hear of negative comments against each other.

Social media has now become the center of information and opinion. With just a click of the mouse or a press on the keyboard, you can easily share your ideas and thoughts across the globe. Unlike face to face conversations, it is easy to speak up online. Knowing that people can only read or reply to your comment makes us braver and also meaner.

I used to be melancholic and I am strongly opinionated as well as hard headed until one day I realised that sharing my sad poems does not help me or anyone for that matter. From a half empty glass, I decided to shift my perspective and dedicated my energy on sharing goodness and positive things online.

Gone are the days when you will hear me ranting excessively. Although, human as I am I still have some occassions where I give into emotions but for most days, I share happiness.

For those who are losing faith in humanity, hope on. I recommend you watch Human as it shows you what we are capable of and what makes us beautiful. Despite the monstrosity, we have goodness in us that cannot be tarnished.

All of us wants to be happy and yet we focus on another perspective. We continue to bully and try to be better than others. The world is already crazy because everyone wants to be right. In a world filled with hatred, being right only adds hostility.

The biggest challenge we face today as humans, is to fight our own monsters so we can bring out more of our goodness.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
-Mahatma Gandhi

Think about it. Read your past posts in Facebook.

What do you create and share with the world?

Are you feeding or fighting the monster?
