I’m tired of people using OUR SACRED TEXTS to pontificate, segregate and denigrate instead of using THEM to educate, elevate and venerate. We turn words into weapons with which we cut each other down cause God forbid they would rise higher than ourselves.
We weaponsize the intangibles as well- happiness , harmony, peace, empathy, understanding, clarity, purity, unity, compassion, faith, kindness and forgiveness. We weaponize love and we are so presumptuous that we even attempt to weaponise that which from all love springs- God/Spirit/the Divine. Look at the Crusades, the Inquisition, the African Holocaust, Imperialism and Colonialism, the current persecution of the Rohingya in Myanmar and the continued marginalization of those that we perceive as different; as if we didn’t all spring from the same Source.
If your spiritual beliefs are pegged to being reassured that you’re “chosen” or that others are beneath you or “wrong” to believe what they do, then perhaps it’s time for a re-examination of said beliefs. Because we are all truth seekers on Earth, learning our lessons and trying to find our way back HOME and just because you’ve found your truth, doesn’t invalidate someone else’s. Allow others to navigate their journey in peace. That’s why God/Spirit/ the Universe gave us free will in the first place.
