We Have Gathered a World of Information, but it Hasn’t Made us Wise

We have gathered a world of information, but it hasn’t made us wise. We’ve learned how to manage corporations, but not our feelings. How to train our pets, but not our minds. How to make more money, but still hoard our possessions. How to build amazing structures, while our relationships crumble.

When will we learn to love without conditions? To give freely of what we have, without keeping score? When will we soften enough to grow intelligence, not just spewed verbiage?

Who will teach us how to love ourselves, and those who aggravate us? Who can convince us that Truth is inclusive and walls are unnecessary?

Where are we going if our leaders are lost?
