Some people believe blood relations supersede any and all relations. To others, friendships can trump blood relations, especially if family relationships have been less than satisfying.
In order to not only survive, but thrive, we need to go beyond familial and tribal relations, and realize we are all global citizens. This requires doing some blood work.
To meet the tough global, integrated challenges of today, we urgently need to raise the level of our collective leadership. We need to increase both our global intelligence (mind) and our planetary empathy (heart) in order to a give birth to a just and sustainable civilization.
…………~ Mark Gerzon
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.
…………~ Richard Bach
Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.

And ya gotta love a guy like Robin Williams ~ he puts the lack of mental prowess, required for embracing a “bigger” view, into perspective:
God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.
