Our dearly beloveds, breathe. Have no fear. Everything happens for a reason. Judas long ago played his part. There is only one Savior. There is only one spark of Precious Life, given this world which we all miraculously share, only One Animating Spirit, One Unifying Field, throughout all time space, that beats our hearts, energizes subatomic particles, Unites us all. Only one.
What reason for darkness and for evil? Evil is a teacher. What is the lesson our young child ancestors gifted us with, when they tasted of the Forbidden Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil? What lesson learned by those who looked Evil right in the face–Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Victor Frankl, Mahatma Gandhi, and our beloved Jesus of Nazareth. What did evil teach all of them?
Peace. Is. A. Choice. Peace is an INSIDE job. Peace is not out there. It’s not in Washington or books of law, written by men.
The law of peace is written in our hearts, in our DNA.
Peace is not ever going to come from guns or locks or walls.
Peace is not, never was, never will be–out there in the World, separate from us.
The politicians over and over and over again promise us change.
If we want real change, we must BE it. If we want true and everlasting peace, we must CHOOSE it.
Right here. Right now. One day at a time.
Our dearly beloveds, breathe. Everything happens for a reason.
