grief and the human condition

Having spent some time amongst indigenous people in southern Mexico recently I have been stunned to rediscover how shut down the human heart is in other places!  Rediscovering the traumatic situation in long time 'developed' countries has been a very valuable if shocking education.  Rather then the purpose of interaction between people being to uplift, which surely is the natural thing, conversations of a complaining or disapproving, moralising  nature have become the norm.  So removed from the natural human habitat and a natural way of life it is understandable.  When we lose somebody dear to our hearts it is an important process to grieve so we don't die in some sense with them or the relationship.  I got to the point where I felt a need to yet again grieve the whole human condition.  There is more and better for humanity, at least for the humans who really want it.
