That's all fine and dandy and heart warming but let's be real here...

When a big part of the world population worries about being able to make ends meet, works 40, 50, 60, 70 + hours a week ...nobody is gonna give a fuck about empathy in the world.

Basic human needs have to be met before everyone can be on board with this.

But wouldn't a large portion of the population practising empathy be able to help those that aren't yet able to get on board due to pressing immediate concerns in making ends meet.  Isn't empathy the solution to helping those rise above just making ends meet.   Not assuming it is, Just asking!

Once a person realizes that we are all part of the larger whole, then we will all be better off.  Only Subtle vibrations of the universe separate an American from a mongolian. Someday science will prove this.

Send good vibes off and good vibes will come back to you. It is as real a physical law as gravity.
