Seeking balance in joy

When you watch things like the video posted earlier today—the one where a young man apparently decided that life is not worth living in a country that lacks basic freedoms and the rule of law—one can get pretty glum about humanity and the way it acts as its own scourge. And yet, as Morihei Ueshiba remarked, the universe is ready, all creation is open, and all that remains is for humanity to become enlightened. So close, yet our failures are so dismal.

It is important, however, not to overlook the successes of humanity, and what human life could be like should people find it in themselves to cooperate. I want to thank Jack of Amsterdam who passed along a video that greatly improved my mood. Watch at least until the middle. Best watched fullscreen.
