“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” – William Shakespeare
‘War’ seems to be the buzzword of the last few months (years?). Depending on your partner in conversation, there is a supposed (real? perceived? imagined?) ‘war’ on Christianity, women’s health, gay people, minorities, Islam, the poor, white men, corporations, Democrats, Republicans, the middle class, the upper class, black men, right wingers, left wingers and on and on and on.
Everyone seems to have chosen her/his/their side in the wars that rage against men (‘men’ in the universal sense, not in the gender sense). We’re all pissed off and fighting about our ‘thing’, whatever it is and God (or the deity of your choice) help you if you don’t agree with what is clearly the right way (whichever side you happen to be on). It’s too much.
The International Day of Peace is still six months away on September 21, but what if we got started early? Be at peace, just for today. Send silent love to those with opposing views. See your opponents in a different light. If that’s too hard, just take a day off from the fight. I promise the revolution will not collapse without you.
Choose love today. Even if it’s only for today – choose love. Namaste`
