Reflection 120 (Twist)


I was just finishing reading the fifth chapter of Oliver Twist, the novel by Charles Dickens.
Dickens is a great writer and once you start reading, you are eager to know what happens next making it difficult to put the book down. Anyhow I am reading it online. Did you know that you can read so many great works of old completely free online. Not only all fantastic works of RW Emerson are freely available online, but also books like the one mentioned above.

The reason for this writing is actually to express how much awareness came to my mind that the world is indeed changing extremely fast. I learned from more scientific sources that the picture painted in the first five chapters of Oliver Twist, may be quite accurate in how orphans and children in general were dealt with, less than 200 years ago.

Humanity, loving kindness and caring charity has progressed enormously over the past 2 centuries and still the majority of us staring at the news on TV and think that the world is in a downwards spiral. Nothing is further from the truth.

The world is getting better day by day. Kindness is ever increasing, people get inspired and go on inspiring others in an exponential way. So abstain for one day from news on TV, from newspapers, from news on the internet and enjoy being part of the enormous kindness revolution that has taken deep roots and is ready spout shoot up in the fastest growing tree giving comfort and peace to the whole wide world.
