If we sincerely wish to be truly peaceful and help the world go beyond the conflict that tears people apart, then it would be prudent to exist as that which does not contribute to much of the separation and conflict. It would be wise to be a global citizen, not a mere adherent to a particular political party, country, or race. This isn’t anarchy here; it is intelligently working together as one, beyond all of the insane, disconnected nonsense. It would also be foresighted and very thoughtful to not belong to an organized religious structure, with its own separate set of dogmas, beliefs, and hierarchical systems. It is separative countries, traditions, organized religions, and beliefs that have largely contributed to wars and friction between people. This is no small matter; people die over this stuff; young people die. If we could come together, just as friends, putting away the absorbed patterns that cause so much of the friction, maybe that would be the start of truly being spiritual. However, so many refuse to let go of the inherited patterns and traditions that they cling to. If that would change, and if they would perceive and care instead of repeat and belong… we would have a planet with much less bloodshed. So many of us were brainwashed into thinking that belonging to things gives us security; however, real global security, ironically, comes when man transcends belonging to systems that separate and cause friction.

I wish more people would see it! Thanks, FIYB! 🙂
Love the photo. Some religions are more tolerant of others now…much more tolerant than before! Good post!
Thank you, MK! 🙂 Some are more tolerant, but they are all divisive in their own way. Tolerance is often a temporary thing.
Wish it will happen in the future… An inspiring post. Thank you, Tom.
Thank you, Amy! 🙂 One doubts whether we’ll be that intelligent!
your words are really moving, Thomas, because you want the world to be peaceful and – of course – you are right, that particularly religions that should be so peaceful are the cause of many deadly wars. Wish your words would be heard. Have a nice day – hopefully with sun and warmth, regards Mitza
Thank you, Mitza! 🙂 My words won’t be heard enough, but, as T.S.Eliot (that wolf in sheep’s clothing) said, “There is only the trying; the rest is not our business.”
Your wish is coming true; we have sun and warmth today; rain is on the way starting this evening, so they say.
well, said inspiration, Tom 🙂
Thank you much, David! 🙂 Like I said to Mitza, above, it won’t have much impact, but at least we are trying!
Great post! I wish we could undertand that we are all connected and one in this world… We would live peacefully all together and care for our planet.
Yes, yogawithnese, one wishes that too! 🙂 Too many are more concerned with their separative beliefs and traditions than peace. It’s the way so many are. Hopefully things may change.
Great post! Touches the heart of the problems
Much appreciated, R! Yes, the heart! Most think that their separative, little groups give security… when, in actuality, they create friction and conflict in the world. Things must change!
So true, so sad, too bad — when belief systems spread contagion.
Yes, Lindy, so glad you see it! 🙂 Like what was mentioned to R above, we strongly feel that our groups and beliefs bring safety and security… when, all along, they are creating friction and conflict in the world. We can do better!
My thoughts exactly. Very well said.
Great, MT! Hug your cat a lot today! 🙂
I have learned much peace and wisdom from my cat so I will hold him and hug him today.
Whenever we make a choice we forget that tiny detail- the ripple effect.
Great food for thought.
May you have a great week!
~ Dajena 🙂
Yes, Dajena; people don’t look deeply into consequences. Most of them don’t look deeply into anything. Hoping your week is enlightening. 🙂
Thank you, Marcela! 🙂
I LOVE it!
Thank you much, UM! 🙂
