Thinking About the World

There is something magical about the idea of making a difference. It’s about being connected with the people who are able to contribute in ways that are worth paying attention. Because we’re wired to want people like us to make a difference, it’s easy to turn selfish and to seek self-absorption in others. Because we don’t want you to be part of any larger circle of people who can make a difference, it’s easy to turn the world in one direction. But we don’t know how to find that circle, so we turn selfish and seek out others who are able to do just that. One of these selfish reasons is that it takes very good judgment to seek others out when looking for a circle that we can belong to. That’s because we all seek others out.
