We have all been on the receiving end of texts, emails, calls, or fights where things were said to or about us, that no matter how the situation resolved, left an open wound of distrust. And we ourselves have delivered those blows to people, unjust, and without thinking, slaying them callously with our serpent tongues. For many of us, our tongues are the master and us its servant, slaves to what it speaks in our name, unable to stop it from wagging.
We have been asleep, wrapped in a blanket of narcissism, and greed as we lay upon a mattress of self-deception. But now we are suddenly awake. Money, power, and security cannot seem to shake us from this nightmare, all of it threatened on a global scale. There is a sudden upheaval as death, the great equalizer of man vanquishes all in its path leveling the playing field. As we are confronted with facing our own mortality something deep inside the collective consciousness is shifting.
