This. THIS. You know what? You can take the pious, self -aggrandizing doctrine and regulations you blab about day in and day out. How about you put some action behind all the drivel you’re peddling. This picture is proof that we have the choice. We have the option to be compassionate. We can love each other. Free will is NOT limited to picking a religion. Free will means we can do whatever we want. We have the capacity to bring many levels of hell into the lives of people around us. We have the capacity to care for people we don’t know, to bridge gaps between religions and cultures. Do this people. Please. Choose to do what’s right.
Afghanistan, in the two months I’ve been here has taught me one thing: I’m really tired of all the hate and have been able to really explore the “why” of any hate I’ve held in my heart, mind and soul. It’s humbling, but instead of guilt, I’m making moves. Making moves to make better choice and live they way I believe I should. Most of you know I’m not one to back down from conflict and I typically have a ‘guns-blazing’, ‘full-auto’ way of handling conflict. I’ve learned that if you stand on fact you don’t need to waste energy ramming it down people’s throats. If they are supposed to figure it out at some point in their journey, I can plant a seed. Maybe someone else will water it. (This all didn’t come to me recently. This has been an adventure I’ve been on for the last year or so. Being here has just helped.) Much Love.
