THE GREATEST SPEECH EVER MADE



I just came across this video this morning and it brought my emotions up. It represents my view of the world as I too feel very strongly that things are not the way they were intended to be and we're heading to the wrong direction in the global level. I've spent the past two days in very spiritual company learning things about me and finding my own spirituality and connecting with it and finding ways to strengthen it. I think we all need to step out of our self-centered selves and stop, breathe, be present, acknowledge and connect with what's around you and try to feel more united with the world.

"We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.The way of life can be free and beautiful. 
But we have lost the way.Greed has poisoned men’s souls – has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. 
Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost."

Charlie Chaplin 1940
