Something We Can All Agree Upon

Have you ever wondered why the circumstances of life these days have to be - so it seems eh - so challenging.

In order to bring about the absolute need for communication, appreciation and most importantly allowance for different ways there are now actual support systems in place to encourage peoples of the world to come to 100 points of agreement.

In 100 points of agreement, people sit down together and they start a list and they keep going until they have 100 points that they can agree upon that are true for them.

Now if this was one hundred points of disagreement - well.....I do not mean to jest too much but I think that so many of us could come up with one hundred points of disagreement about things we don't like in the world, things we don't like about what this government or that government is doing and so on - what this business or that business is doing but what is needed now is 100 points of agreement.

So, this is not something that is intended to start at some high level and that the dictates will come down from above which we all must follow like lemmings.

No, this is something that needs to start on a person to person basis. Think about it, ask your friends - what do we agree upon. Don't be assuming that you agree upon anything. Start with the most basic, such as we all need sleep, we all need to eat, we all need to have work that we enjoy doing and allows us to feel fulfilled and go on from there.

This is very valuable because it not only allows people to see how they are alike but also that the motivations and the expressions for those needs come about in different ways but that those goals are behind these expressions and those drives.

Please consider starting this with friends or family and expanding out from there to your neighborhood or your community.

I feel that it might be possible to develop a list that could even include everyone on the world where people can honestly say yes, we agree - we need to do this, we need to do that and I feel that it is worth starting now. I am asking that this be something that you consider - not just as a new years resolution but as something that you personally can participate in.

Start it where you live and accumulate those points and when you feel that you and your friends and your family and your neighborhood and your wider community can agree on those things then feel free to share them on the internet here and ask for others to choose whether they agree as well.

I feel that when we can get 100 points of agreement about our world and most importantly - our needs as individuals then we will be able to find a way to get along with each other and work together to achieve these points of agreement for the betterment of all.

Thank you for bringing our awareness to this ~
Yes I think when we met "in agreement" we will begin to see others in a more empathetic light, which will unite us as a people in a very special way.
