everything moves in waves. humanity is in a downward motion but it feels like we're near the tipping point, the point where it gets so low that the need for change is seen by everyone so much so that it starts happening. i really hope after what happened in france tonight people don't have the same reaction as they did the last terrible tragedy in france. i think people just want to feel safe; for all this violence to stop. fighting back will just make it worse, it's feeding into the negativity that drives the wave of humanity downward. no 1 person has the answers, but maybe if everyone came together we could put the pieces of the puzzle into place. stop looking at the differences that divide us but the similarities in how we live, love, believe and appreciate life. until then, or some divine intervention, we can't let fear take control over us or cloud our judgement. there should be no talks of profiling muslims, there should be talks of peace and resolution. there should be talks about how humanity as a whole can grow and prosper, at peace with the earth and all its inhabitants. we need to talk about some real # or we're not going to be here much longer

Thanks for your reply and I agree fully.
The more, it seems, we try to speak about solutions, the more we're highlighting the differences and stirring the said pot, and increasing the divisions....
Somehow we need to find a different approach to the dialogue, if we truly want to stop the violence and separation, and increase our ability to withstand and continue to give the human species something worthwhile in the meaning of "humanity."

Thanks for your contribution.

It doesn't mean that when someone hits you, you offer the other cheek so they can hit that one too. Nor does it mean to be ready to defend. It means that you don't stoop to the level of the person who wronged you by seeking revenge. It means you continue to be the better person and remain calm in the face of adversity. It means that might does not necessarily mean right. Defend, yes. Go out and seek vengeance in anger, no.

i believe u are wrong, i get not seeking vengence, since too seek revenge would be to judge.

but

like i said when one turns the check when being attacked one should defend.

i also know that this teaching didnt mean physical attack, it was ment first as spiritual attack, second mental attack, and third whichever attack.

physical could fall in this teaching, but is not the point of the teaching.

btw i really hope thats not your real face on your avatar

I could be wrong. So could every minister who preached about it in church. But I tend to agree with them, as the same message appears in numerous books of the Bible. Everyone interprets things differently...I don't think anyone holds the monopoly on interpretation of religious texts.

And, while we're on the subject of attacks, why on Earth would you hope that's not my "real face"? What an awful thing to say to another person...what is the point of that?



btw i really hope thats not your real face on your avatar

Well, in that case, I'll do just that. And I am sorry about your lost love.

no need to be sorry , my own choices lost her.

she is out there

but the kicker is she is untraceable

she does not do social media or constructs, due to a real psychopath that wants to claim his child.

she was hiding her and her baby at the same time in different places so she knew they were safe.

we happened to know each other for many moons as i was hiding myself, i got the chance to come out of hiding and i took it, i never saw her again,but i think about her everyday.

i know i am idiot coward.

Prayer for healing

for/of mind, body, soul, spirit, relationship.

. . . and for all that is most needed individually and between you in your situation. Sigh.

I have loved several people who have hurt me deeply, devastatingly. It was and is worth it.

May God make Himself real to both of you in uncommon ways.
