What if we asked important questions?

What if we asked more important questions? What if we prioritized life over profit? What would life be like if we all found peace within our selves? What if we took the time to understand someone or be able to walk away from them without judgement or violence (verbal or physical)?What if we didn’t become hypocrites and corrupt? What if we didn’t change our stance on things that were harmful because we were offered a ton of money to change people’s minds? What if we started caring more about our bodies, minds and children to research whatever we were told was “good” for us just so they can make more money selling it to you? What if you started healing yourselves instead of paying more money to the medical industry? What if the medical industry wasn’t trying to kill you? What if our way of life wasn’t manufactured by advertisers 100 years ago? What if the government, that is supposed to make things better for us wasn’t owned by the highest bidders? What if laws weren’t created by those weaving a minefield in order to make people “pay for their forgiveness”? What if religions didn’t collect money? What if everyone all over the globe stopped buying crap they don’t need? What if 100 million people had a local source of food instead of $100 millionaires coming over to poverty stricken countries just to take a photo feeding 1 or 2 people? What if we came up with solutions that bettered how we treat all life on the earth instead of killing those that do? What if everyone had their own source of food and energy? What if instead of watching worthless programs on tv, we spent more time with our mind, body soul and family and children? What if we really understood our hearts and minds and what we’re capable of instead of working most of, if not all our lives to pay bills? What if the Earth wasn’t being raped for resources? What if there wasn’t 2.6 TRILLION pounds of trash on this globe? What if some of our free time went into finding answers to these questions? How would we change if these and other thoughts were integrated into our daily lives?

I am a Student of Life currently living in India with my wife and son. I am interested in philosophy, discussions of life and how to make it better as we learn, individually, how to lead ourselves. We're waking up, and our mindset is changing. We need to increase our perspectives in order to become more tolerant and eventually more loving toward all life. The skeptics that would bawk at ideas of communities of people living in peace, choosing to "work" for themselves as a means for a "living" instead of profit and consumerism, simply means they aren't at the same level of understanding and aren't surrounded by an environment or others that would support those ideals. My proposal is for more people to leave their comfortable lives and conveniences and increase their time in nature. Reconnect with that which we are. My goal is in "being" not in "having"
