No matter what is going on in the world, from my little existence to the big picture, I remain passionate about peace and my belief we are all one. However, the "I" cannot be a part of the "collective" one unless it is willing to let go of the human ego. This is where you cease thinking with an organ (the brain) and start thinking and relying more on what comes from your spirit. I cannot express enough how very important it is to embrace diversity and to truly love one another for who we are not what we do. Throw any assumptions, prejudices and preconceived notions you have of others from different cultures and belief systems out the window and realize we are all as God intended us to be. I do not understand the "necessity" of war. The boundaries we create are only seen by us. In the vastness of the universe, borders of any kind, do not exist. It is up to us to grasp humanity and embrace all the wonders of what makes each of us unique and learn from one another. I know thinking with the spirit sounds new agey, weird, etc. The only part of us that lives on is the spirit and I believe, to be a part of a collective conscious that reunites with the one who created us the human id/ego needs to fall away through the process of humility. If you already know what I'm talking about kudos to you. If you do not there are some wonderful books out there that illustrate my point. A Course in Miracles by Dr. Helen Schucman published solely by The Foundation for Inner Peace. Gifts From A Course In Miracles, a collection of the combine course. The Inner Voice of Love by Henri J.M. Nouwen, There's A Spiritual Solution to Every Problem by Wayne Dyer and if you look past the blinders religion seems to place on us, the teachings of Jesus become more inspirational when tunnel vision is stripped away when viewed as it was intended, by the spirit. It does not matter who you are or where you come from, spiritual evolution cannot occur without complete and total humility.
