How can we come to know one another more intimately and bridge the gaps in understanding across cultures?
Its not often we get to hear good news from around the world. And, when we do, news always seems to be filtered through some bias in one form or another. This type of publicity does in fact create deep imprints on our psyche and understanding of individuals, cultures, religions, and traditions. We may believe certain people are a certain way, without ever knowing them, based on pre-conceptions. Luckily enough, it is 100% possible to exercise our human will & re-write these conditionings.
In those unique moments when we have the opportunity to sit down and talk personally with individuals of worldly communities and cultures, we witness broadened insight into a deeper truth of our shared humanity, and therefore understand ourselves more intimately.
