“Against”

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

This world has always embraced “against” as opposition. Only option #1 exists.

 

From the beginning of time someone is “against” someone else:

invasions

battles

conquests

uprisings

revolts

rebellions

crusades…

wars.

 

Periods of lulls intermingled with these oppositions usually after the discovery of some huge new landmass. Large groups escaped (or were forced) to the new lands. However, what happened to the natives as the “important” peoples implanted themselves?

 

invasions

battles

conquests

uprisings

revolts

rebellions

crusades…

wars.

 

When will the world realize there is another…

a #2?

When will the world welcome the physical contact with everyone?

When will the world embrace the ability to be supported by others, or touching?

 

We do not have to always battle.

We do not have to cave to “Us vs. Them”

 

I will continue to love and support and touch and stay in contact with the world, everyone, individuals.

 

I will not battle. I will only love.
