As Yourself Look At The World, Just Look 2020

The ability to look is a high ability. The choice to see what is in front of one in a true way is pretty special. To see what something is without addition
or subtraction. See how it relates to the world around you. When you are listening to ideas, find out what the words really mean. It can be difficult
to not just have a blanket response to certain words, like communist or socialist or capitalist. Just savor each word and notice what emotion it brings up.
Now what about puppy or kitten, fresh water, sunset? A different feel. Those who understand marketing use this every day. Think about a visual symbol, like
a lit candle, christmas tree, or menorah. What about a hammer and sickle, a swastika? The symbols bring emotion and a sense of wanting to act because of
the emotion. This is a reaction.

So in the days that follow, maybe it is a good idea NOT to inflame the emotions and actions of others. Look around, and see. It is too easy to form social media "gangs".
This makes it way too easy to stop looking for yourself. Sometimes we just need to go out and look at structures and trees, mailboxes and street signs, until the emotions
and noise quiet down. This is the least we can do for one another. It is something we can do for ourselves and by ourselves. We will feel better, and that will lead to kinder behavior.
