Experience

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Experience
“Experience is a cruel teacher, it gives the exam first and then the lesson.” ~ Unknown
Difficulties are opportunities to better things; they are stepping stones to greater experience. Perhaps someday you will be thankful for some temporary failure in a particular direction. When one door closes, another always opens.
“All truly wise thoughts have been thoughts already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience.” ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The co-creative potential of 7 billion human beings is powerful enough to create a new reality in a very short time. The function of mass media is to keep alive the memes that perpetuate the old system. Essentially, mass media influences the minds of the people to continue to create the old reality. It's almost funny to think that "reality" has no substance at all, other than the substance we collectively co-create.
