From the mind of critic: “If we have to inhale specifically so we can exhale in our physical world, must we do the same in our mental world? Must we do for ourselves, specifically so we can do for others, by inhaling beauty, and exhaling kindness and gratitude? If we we ignore others so we can do more or all for ourselves, will it provide short term gain in favor of long term survival? My mom has taught me many things over the years, none as important as remembering to fill my own cup. Basically, if we go around all day filling everybody elses cup, we’ll have nothing left for ourselves. Before we expend energy, we have to build energy. Once we realize that to build positive energy, all we have to is walk outside and breathe in how beautiful the world really is, we’ll see that keeping balance is a lot easier when we get out of our own way. Inhaling oxygen and exhaling co2 might help us survive, but breathing in beauty and breathing out love, humanism and accountability, is how we allow our species to consciously evolve.”
