Two Worlds 23
CAN YOU IMAGINE FOR A MOMENT, a murderer murdering someone if he holds love and compassion for others… and himself in his heart… or a rapist raping, a thief thieving, a bully bullying? Can you imagine an angry person or a jealous person venting their negative emotions on some poor innocent victim if their inherent nature is peaceful and loving?
Can you imagine there ever being a war between peoples and nations if the qualities of love and understanding were instilled in mankind? And can you imagine there ever being poverty in the world if we all cared for each other, showing compassion and generosity toward all our fellow human beings?
Of course not! It would be a completely different world than the world we now see. And that world begins within us. We must be willing to give up the world we now see before we can accept a world we can love and understand. The world we now see is there for a purpose, for us to learn from, but it’s time for change, it’s time that we moved on.
The warning signs to look out for are greed, selfishness, pride, envy, lust, anger, jealousy, any form of violence… Yes! We know them all; The Seven Deadly Sins and all that. We must become consciously aware of what we are doing to this world.
We must learn to be loving and caring human beings. But before we can do that, we must first learn to love and care for ourselves. That is our ultimate goal. That is exactly what we are doing here, learning to love and care for ourselves and others – and it’s up to each one of us to succeed…
