Live or Let Die?

Visible to anyone in the world

I'm a big fan of Dr Jordan Peterson and thought I would share this quote from him in relation to present events:

'When things break down, what has been ignored rushes in. When things are no longer specified with precision, the walls crumble, and chaos makes its presence known. When we've been careless, and let things slide, what we have refused to attend to gathers itself up, adopts a serpentine form, and strikes—often at the worst possible moment. It is then that we see what focused intent, precision of aim and careful attention protects us from.'

As scary as things are for people at the moment, there could be a positive outcome from all this. Maybe when people realise just how fragile life is, and how easily their freedoms can be taken away, they might demand a better quality of life for them and their families.  Maybe they will start to hold their politicians to account more and demand they work for in the interests of the people who elected them and not a money-hungry, war-mongering elite. It would be nice if that happened but in order to instigate those type of changes we need leaders and unfortunately, there aren't many good ones around.

The events of the last few weeks have certainly given me some serious food for thought and once this is over, the planning will begin and I will be making some major changes in my life. It will take a while to put everything in place but it's time...watch this space.
