Think It Through

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Think it through

We have made many advances in today’s world. We have come a long way from the days of horse and buggies, we now live in one of the most advanced civilizations the world has ever known. Today, we have higher buildings and wider roads, but shorter temperaments and narrower points of view. We spend more but enjoy it less.

We have bigger houses, but smaller families, more free time, but we spend less of it with the people who are most valuable to us.

We reached the moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors. We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space.

These are the times of finer houses, but broken homes. Even with all the advances mankind has made, we have forgotten what is important. In our rush to improve our standard of living, materially, we have forgotten the spiritual side of our lives.

We now are beginning to see some serious problems developing because we, as a society have forgotten what is important. The moral breakdowns that began in the 60s are now taking a tremendous toll on our way of life. It is way past time to get back to the basics of life and follow the age old concepts that enabled us to reach this high level of success.

In today’s world what is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right, many people have forgotten or never been taught the common sense values that continue to work for generation after generation.

Many people think that just because they believe something, or because some influential person in their life told them something, it is true. One might have been able to rely on the wisdom of others in the past, however, today that simply isn’t true.
