Did you know that a group of frogs is called an 'army' and a group of toads is called a 'knot'? Makes me wonder what a group of humans is called? We are like animals- strong and can survive on our own and when united even stronger and survival is even easier and obviously more enjoyable. As humans, when we unite we are no doubt more powerful. Families and friends create circles and bonds very hard to break. It isn't always easy to enter these circles and depending how protective the 'members' are there may be no outsiders allowed to join in. As great as these formed bonds and circles we humans create can be- they can keep us confined and limited because we worry about being put under a microscope with every action or word that is different from that of our circle. Being human means we have lots of choices and options of what to think, what to do, what to say, where to go, what to believe in- we are filled with many, many options and because we have chosen which is right or wrong (in our own opinion anyway) we create separation and in some severe cases we create hate. What are we to do in a world where there are so many options yet some humans choose to remain stagnant, unchanged and closed to every new idea or opinion? This obviously creates separation and allows the belief of hate.
We must remember that we are like our world: always changing and moving forward. We must continue to learn and grow with our world and its people and remain united creating love and peace within ourselves, our circles, and everything that surrounds us. United we are strong, united we can help, united we can do more!
