Blindness and a spectrum of colour

Wonderfully, thanks to medical advances, the number of people whose sight is completely blind is declining.

Sadly, due to human regression, the number of people ‘blind’ to others, their views and situation is increasing.

To see others we must first learn to understand, listen without evaluation and empathise.

No matter how opposite our worldviews are with another person, we can only influence, if that is what we seek, by understanding their world, their experiences, their environment that has shaped their views.

After all, there is no black and white, right or wrong, just a giant spectrum of different coloured worldviews.

Don’t be bullied out of your opinions, your not a conspiracist

We seem to live now in a world where there is one acceptable opinion or view of something, often dictated by the media or the establishment.

It takes bravery to have a different view as you are often labelled a conspiracist or a threat or just plain weird.

But we need different opinions, whatever they are, as just accepting everything and only having one voice heard seems weird, conspiratorial and dangerous.

If you have a different view, don’t be bullied out of it.
