When are we going to learn?

How many Big Bang
does the human race
need to experience
in order to understand and learn?

How many supernova
explosions will it take
for the fallen stars
to find their place?

How many lifes do we need
to sacrifice on the alter
of ambition and selfishness?

How many civilizations
have to disappear
so we can learn
to forgive
forget and move on?

Will a 4th world war
teach us what we have to learn?

Descartes, Voltaire, Spinoza
Candhi, Einstein and all the
enlightened souls knew
what it needs to be done...

But we do not listen!



The Taj Mahal memorium
shows us what we can achieve


When will the "Age of Enlightenment" come?

When will the illusions of childhood lift?

When are we gonna achieve a greater self-awareness
and understanding of our own roles
and responsibilities in the world?

BOOKMARKED. Learning every second of the day. A great reminder, especially since I am still young.
"We are learning every second of the day,
We are learning in every different way.
We are learning every day of the week,
We are learning to look and to seek.
We are learning every week of the month,
We are learning to relax and have fun.
We are learning every month of the year,
We are learning there, there, and here..."
and so on.
I just made that up now from the top of my head!
