Example after example is given along with t ...more

“is amazing how many people, if granted just one wish, would ask for “world peace”. If it is such a common desire, why has it not happened? Is it because we can’t visualize what is required for it to occur? Or because we cannot imagine what such a world would look like? Is it that we just don’t recognize the major impediments, or is it because those impediments are a part of our long-standing, indoctrinated belief systems and therefore too difficult for” 0 likes
