I do believe there is great wisdom in the words THINK Globally! ACT locally! Yesterday I spent several hours at a Festival where 50 various groups had gathered to share their expertise and matters and situations that most know nothing about.
This reminded me that so often most of us come to deeply believe that ALL we see in front of us is the Truth about ALL of the world. It reminds me of the story about the elephant. It goes something like this. All the mouse in the wild knew about the elephant was the huge legs she saw as the elephant walked over the house hole.
