As human beings, we have evolved with complex and differing influences, attitudes and beliefs which colour our perceptions of life, materially, emotionally and spiritually. In many ways these diverse views of ‘what is’ have created great rifts and misunderstandings between us and certainly our adherence to various branches of faith with diverse commands, rules, observances, rituals and ‘forbiddens’, have been instrumental throughout history in creating much separation, pain and suffering between us.
And we’re so keen for our God to be the ‘One God’ and so we call this personal God of ours by many different names that no doubt have deep meaning for us as individuals. But what I feel is needed in our crazy world, is for all of us to come together in a deeper understanding of that which joins us so much more strongly that the things that divide us.
So here is my suggestion if you choose to take on this challenge. It’s a simple matter of semantics. If we have beliefs, let’s focus on our individual Gods and simply substitute the inclusive name “ALL THAT IS”. It’s a tiny semantic difference which could have far-reaching ramifications for the good of Humanity. Today, let’s embrace our beautiful world together, as one.. :))
