Love All -- Do Wrong To None
In the light of current events, there seems to be a darkening vapor of fear and discontent among most Americans. Circumstances that are clouding our ability to think for ourselves, and it's diluting our perspective for using good old fashioned "common sense." To solve the enormous problems set forth by our own resistance and reluctance to act on these issues, it is erroneous to think we can sustain this pompous attitude for much longer. Things have to change quickly-before it's too late.
There is no conceivable reason to disbelieve the that simple acts of love, kindness, and compassion are incapable of "jump starting" our new "attitude." These alone will help us to sustain our focus on solving the problems we have now, and those that lie ahead of us. They are essential to build bridges between our hearts, that will detour us from a path of anomie, that seems to be in the drivers seat of our future.
The only choice we have is to take a second look at our own lives. Then we can wake up from the "media induced coma" web of deceit. We must turn off the faucet of excessive " me-me-me, " and begin to turn around this "season of discontent, disconnect, and disenchantment." We must surrender ourselves to seek, listen, and receive. To awaken the hunger inside of us, that can open the door to teach us to express the inexpressible. We need to be kinder.
To err is human- to forgive... divine.
To be human is to love. It would be erroneous to think otherwise. It's our only hope...
