As you view the world, remember that the black patches of evil which you see are shown against a white background of ultimate good… When there is so much good truth to publish and proclaim, why should men dwell so much upon the evil in the world just because it appears to be a fact? The beauties of the spiritual values of truth are more pleasurable and uplifting than is the phenomenon of evil.” (Truthbook.com quote of the day)
The world seems shattered in view of innocent children and adults shot down in a school in Connecticut. But, what will change?
Guns do not “make” people shoot other people. Guns are mere things, with no power of their own.
The way we think is what is behind our actions.
The time is now. Are you brave enough to ask: What is influencing the way you and I think? Aren’t we simply drowning in a culture pathetically handicapped and entrenched in violence and disregard for the uniqueness of the individual?
“… it is not in guns, motion pictures, video-games, or bumper-stickers that explanations are to be found. All of these things – objects lacking in will – are nothing more than expressions of the purposes and values to be found within our own minds. It is our thinking that generates demands for such things, and it is to our thinking that we must repair if we are truly desirous of ending our participation in the madness of our world.“ Butler Schaffer, (read full article here)
Go ahead, put bigger and better locks on the doors. Throw as much money as you want at schools and security, create another commission, and add more pages of government legislation to the massive amount of laws already on the books. Do you really believe this is the answer to anything?!
What is Love?
Real answers will only come when we begin learning how to love. Until the causal factors and action elements of Love are daily being taught, nurtured and freely applied throughout our culture (and that includes the arenas of education, business and government), there isn’t going to be any change. Count on it.
Our hearts are broken over the suffering and deaths of innocent children…everywhere. For them, change is too late. We hope you will look into the happy faces and voices of the children in this video and rise up today, right now, and do your part to start bringing real Love to the world. Accept no substitute. It’s time.
