Of all that is in creation,humans alone,on this planet,have the ability to change. This is what seperates us from our fellow animals. Yes humans are animals.We just have a lot more control over our respective actions.We're not Lions,we don't have to kill to eat or survive.
Fear and Greed are the motivating factors in humans killing eachother. Sure we can blame substance abuse and the like
but those are creations of man and as such are artifical causes of violence of every type.
Killing for the human,if exposed to enough of it,becomes an acceptable act,mainly because endorphines in the brain set up it's pattern of reoccurance. This can be seen in returning military personell who have done dasturdly acts under orders
and become the loonies on a gun rampage or are constantly putting themselves into situations of impending peril,and revel in it.
Our saving grace is the fact that we have the ability to choose a different way. We have in the past and can do it again. 5,000 years ago the was a city state in Peru named Caral. It was a large civilization who's reach spanned some 1200 sg. miles,trading freely with other villages as much as 500 miles away, They had no standing armies,battlements or forts. There wasn't a need for them because they lived in Peace with respect for their neighbors.
It is the only known civilization in the World to be that way.
400 years before Columbus the Iroquois Confederacy banded together with their nieghbor Nations and formed a lasting Peace centered around the Natural Law.
A peace aggreement was solidified by the burying of all weapons of war and the planting of the Great Peace Tree.
Do we,here and now, possess the ability to have life the same way?
Yes we can! We must route out those whom feel war is neccessary to civilization and turn them away from positions of power.
We must insure that the greedy are influenced away from the wealth that breeds contempt for their fellow humans, and strive for the highest aspiration of humanity.... generosity and honesty in all dealings.
We must rebuke those who use Fear and Intimadation as their M.O. for getting things done.
It only engenders rage and hatred among those whom live under their influence.
A Peaceful,Good Life can be ours for the living. We only need Will it so. From my heart to yours May Peace be with YOU. May all that is meant to be yours for you to learn and grow from come to YOU.May you know All of Creation protects you and there is nothing that can harm,intimidate nor cause you fear,unless you let it.
You are the Heart of Change. You are the power of Change. You are the very Center of Change and you have the ability to BE IT! Creation made a place for you and all other beings. Creation makes us grow and change constantly and works all across that thing we call 'The Known Universe'.
In the time it's taken to read this...we've all change millions of cells. Cells all waiting to become what we Will.
