Live and Let Live


Each and every religion, each and every sect, each and every leader/ teacher/ guru believes they are RIGHT ! 

Each and every political party, government, dictator, theorist, terrorist, activist, protester believes they are absolutely RIGHT !

Each and every corporation, CEO, NGO, lobbyist, propagandist, capitalist, communist, socialist, priest all believe they are fundamentally RIGHT !

Each and every bureaucrat, manager, engineer, doctor, lawyer, accountant, taxman, shopkeeper, street sweeper and even the homeless person believes their actions are RIGHT !

Indeed, every man, woman and child believes that they, and only they, are RIGHT !

It is this insistence on being TOTALLY RIGHT that causes all the arguments, disagreements, fights and wars in the world. 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we accepted that we could all be right from our own perspectives. 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we realized that in what others say, they may have a valid point too.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we listened, appreciated and understood what others had to say before we analysed them.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we just live and let live.
