The current of present events shouldn't have come about. That isn't too say that it wasn't in the cards, for a freight train would have been harder to miss, but when events are so wrapped up in miscommunication rather than in any real difference of opinion, they shouldn't occur.
My girlfriend argue, often and often vehemently. Each of us you see believes we are right. Sometimes, though rather rarely when it comes right down to it, one of us is right and the other is wrong. The rest of the time we argue about.... well, Nothing. Yep, that's right. Nothing. We don't even really disagree. We just fail to understand what the other person is trying to say.
The World we all now live in seems to be filled with this same type of argument more often than any other. While I don't personally follow a particular system of religion, I do believe in a Creator. I believe that there is only one (seems like a one person operation, but to borrow a line from Dennis Miller, "That's just my opinion. I could be wrong.").
Hmm... Boy that sure was hard to say.. Um, well no actually it wasn't.
Jeez. Now don't get me wrong. I do understand how very complicated this all really is, but frankly I am inclined to believe that is more because of indoctrination than for any other reason. Studies have been done proving that the majority of the religious people have chosen their religion because of the geography of their birth, not because of faith, or less because of much actual understanding of their chosen religion.
We, in reality have so few real differences, that the distinctions commonly made are ridiculous. Color is irrelevant, a minimal phenotypic difference that amounts to a fractional percentage of different DNA. Our spiritual differences are even less, created as we are from the same formless, (yes, I said formless, another clue to the inherent flaw of imposing structure upon that which does quite nicely without it.) energy that extends its wave from the beginning to the end/ surface to center/ of Creation.
Culture is, I believe often part of the problem as it often used as a substitute for exploring one's self and one's place in the world, instead of serving to honor the legacy of ones past. There are more ethnic boxes to check on a US census form than there are Smiths in the phonebook. It is ridiculous. I was born and raised an American, and quite frankly I don't always identify with even that culture. Capitalism is cr*p. It puts the promotes of the individual at the expense of the majority, but the that it is a whole other rant.
Our evolution as a Human Race will continue, but does it have to be so painful?
Speak to those around you, and when you do remember that the same energy that flows though you flows through them( yes even the real A-h*les). If you had, had their experiences and lived through their lives then you would have made the same decisions. For each one of us makes the decisions we think are best at the time.
Guess what that would then make you?
Love and Light to all,
