Opposition or Reconciliation

Opposition or Reconciliation

The tendency to criticize, judge, oppose and condemn someone else’s thinking and action is becoming like a virulent poison infecting the political arena of certain countries, especially the United States. It is as if some members of society are only capable of seeing their own point of view and they assume it’s the only correct way of analysing a situation. Whereas, in reality, one can always only perceive outside what exists within one’s…

The World Is MY FAMILY

We cannot abandon our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan who are crying out for help in their time of distress. Those who have helped the USA and England for the past twenty years are now facing a dire threat to their lives. It behooves us to respond to their call. A great wave of fear is engulfing Afghanistan and the only way to eliminate the fear is with an outpouring of love. The antidote to fear is LOVE. This is a test of our humanity. No nation exists in isolation. Each nation is part…

Saying YES to Life

Saying YES to Life

                        by Barbara Ann Briggs

 

Years ago, while on a walk in New York city with an actor friend of mine, he turned to me and asked, “What do you think is the most important word in the English language?” I stopped and pondered, then said, “Love.”

Anger: The Enemy on Earth by Barbara Briggs

"Arjuna said:

What is it that compels a man to

Commit sin, even involuntarily,

As if driven by force, O Varshneya?”

It is desire; it is anger, born of

I come, my Lord, I come! – Rich honey of Prema will I suck from the Lotus of Thy Feet. Thine eyes, shining upon me, will bathe me in the waters of immortality! … To Thy dance with the souls of Thy Bhaktas I come, O Thou, that lurest the…
