Sometimes when things are just not working out, it’s best to start from scratch and get creative. So, since the world is still obviously not a happy place instead, of focusing on complex issues like ending war or global warming, in this article I am going to focus on something simple.
I will re-imagine the way we see the world as a whole
Understand How You See the World Today
Thousands of years of collective thinking has thrust upon us a way of looking at the world which we take for granted. We give it as a given that since we have learned much about politics, science, technology, entertainment, style, architecture, to name a few, then we should make each of these important fields a main category onto itself.
We do not question that.

Because they include all the main categories of information important to humanity at once, news websites best reflect the lens thru which we see our world today.

The World is Overdue for a Reorganization
The way our news are fed to us, shows that we are giving way to much emphasis to things that have to do with either the mind or our physical body, and have forgotten to include developments about the soul.
Sure, I only had five categories in my tiny example above so maybe it was more than coincidence that I didn’t have anything for you to put into the Soul category. But, sadly, there is a reason for it. The truth of the matter is that what a soul is still remains a mystery so no one really knows what to include in that category if we were to include in our news feed anyway.
As things stand right now, there is no balance when it comes to the information we feed ourselves. if we look at it from the standpoint of
In the name of picturing a world where we humans have figured out how to live in peace with each other to enjoy the marvels we are yet to discover on the planet.
Like a disorganized closet over-spilling with clothing, it is currently hard to find what we are looking for in this world if what we want is true happiness.
Sometimes refocusing is the best source of clarity.
