As in the blink of an eye.

In that time our cultural, racial and other prejudices fire into action

Without us being aware of it.

Policeman fire their weapons

Mistakes are made

Injustice done

All because we are conditioned in ways that most of us are unaware of.

Our societies condition us this way.

Time to move on

First step do you know your prejudices?

Most of us are only dimly aware of them.

Take time to learn yours

Racial ones perhaps?

Religious maybe?

Disliking poverty perhaps?

Those who are less educated

And so the list goes on.

Find yours and when you do ask this question.

Why am I frightened of this?

Because at the root of most prejudice is fear.

Once you find this then let it go.
Talk it out loud

Move into greater awareness

Awareness of how much we are conditioned by our culture.

Learn to live in love not prejudice

It all goes on in the blink of an eye

Become conscious
