Comfort ye Comfort ye! the resounding Intentional Prayer for our world, over the next twelve days; with a specific focus on those peoples and cities mourning the loss of loved ones, family, friends and neighbour.
Peace is possible, contrary to media reporting of mass conflicts, killings and terrorist operations. Peace is at hand.
We are bombarded by pictures of sorrow and suffering at every turn, we are hardly able to keep up with the funerals and so many stories of disasters, with little or no respect for life. But, be not afraid. Be not afraid to expect and anticipate Peace. Because, in fear a person pulls out his gun against another, fearing that he may do again that which has been done unjustly. Fear it seems, invading the minds of the nations, through the media.
The playing fields of the human race have become grossly unleveled by fear, greed and suspicions. Foolishly, people are accepting lies. Surrounding themselves with a great measure of hopelessness which has led to revenge and retaliation, and the fallacy, which says that there are degrees of murder, and the right to take a life without permission. And over the years, this perpetuated lie has been allowed to run around untamed, sprung out a stink which says that it is ok to kill the person which beforehand, did kill another person.
We are being groomed to say that this type of tripe is justice. But I tell you this day, regardless of whether it wears the hood of black, brown or white skin tones, nonuniformed or uninformed; the sort of barbarism we read about and watch is no justice at all. It is the basest of imaging, it is a sickness, an epidemic perpetuated by fear, endangering the very fibre of our planet.
Does it make sense for the law which says do not kill to kill in response to kill? Does it make sense for someone who is against the law to try to kill a person who upholds the law? Is thIs our only option? Hatred perpetuates hatred. If a person kills to get attention to himself or to obtain a prize or to teach that person or group a lesson, can we not see that this idea is insensible, fictitious and totally not making a difference at all. Life cannot be killed. We have to get this truth. It is fear that prompts any type of killing. Love is the opposite of love.
There remaineth Love, hope and faith, but the best and greatest is Love. We are all breathing the same air. That is right! There is not one bit of air for you and another bit for another. And we cannot control it either, no matter what scientist tells us. The fact is that Life was around long before it created mankind, although we are fast becoming man-mean. It has been said ‘by any mean necessary..’ but that too is futile. There is a way. And it is not rocket science either.
Every living soul , whatever the age, colour, creed, status or wealth, each, is responsible, to preserve and protect life, in or through whatsoever form it lives. Life is ONE. No more excuses. Live and let live.
