The World is Talking… But Are We Listening

The world is speaking to us yet so many of us refuse to listen. The coronavirus does not discriminate based on color, gender, religious belief or anything else. It does not care what piece of dirt you have artificially drew lines around to claim as your country. It does not care if you are famous or not, rich or poor. Yet as a species we continue to let all those things divide us in hate instead of embracing our differences in unity.

The Bible says in Galatians 3:28:
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

The Quran says:
“And among His wonders is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your tongues and colors. For in this, behold, there are messages indeed for all who are possessed of innate knowledge!

The Torah explains “You were once strangers in the land of Egypt.” You have known what it feels like to be disrespected, to be hated, marginalized, disenfranchised and disempowered, to be cast aside as “other.” You therefore must make sure no one else is ever treated as “other” again.

We can choose to continue to not listen and as species ironically perish as one or listen and flourish as one.

Lovely Day

It’s Monday
It’s damp and cloudy outside
But smile because to paraphrase Bill Withers

When I wake up in the morning, God
And the sunlight hits my eyes
And something without warning, God
Bears heavy on my mind

Then I think of you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one thought of you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I think of you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one thought of you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

Another Message From Above

Message from above

Genesis 1:27 And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

So I created humanity? Not Americans, Mexicans, Chinese, etc but humanity as a whole and children no matter what nationality label you put on them are the most vulnerable and precious part of my creation. Hmmm yet you still divide the beautiful resources of this unique planet I gave you instead of sharing it with one another.  You still believe it is morally correct to stand up and proclaim America or insert whatever country you want first while others suffer. 

Well I see as a species despite the gift of thought that I blessed you with you still have much to learn. Let me give you a little head start, try proclaiming this -Humanity first

Anger or Forgiveness which path will you take

It is at the very moment someone hurts you that you have two paths directly in front of you.

The first is the path of revenge, the most common of all human reactions, to strike back in anger. It is the easier of the two paths after all as the old proverb goes “revenge is a dish best served cold. The second is the path of forgiveness. This path is not easy, it is not the common human reaction. This path requires that we find it with-in us at the very moment we have been hurt the strength to forgive. It requires that we step back and consider that the very pain inflicted on us may well be the result of a pain carried with-in the other person.

While it is true that the first path may appear more satisfying in the short-term it will only serve to harden our hearts and souls in the long-term. The second path undeniably less satisfying in the here and now allows us to move forward in a positive light and permits our hearts to remain pure. And with that it is clear what path we must take. It is clear we must let forgiveness permeate our souls.
