You are going to be hated.
You are going to be ridiculed.
Because you believe this world is full of enough beauty and love
for all beings to get along,
you will be mocked.
Most likely called a hippie. Possibly a socialist (for some reason.)
You will be considered out of touch. An idealist.
You will be considered ignorant of ‘the truth.’
People will assume you do not understand the extent
of the cruelty and the hatred that exists in this world,
and you will be scorned
for thinking that more cruelty and more hatred
is not the answer.
That is okay.
You know better.
You more than ‘know’ the amount of hatred in this world,
you FEEL it. And you know the only thing you can do about it
is saturate the world with Love.
Keep speaking your truth from your heart.
Do not let ‘them’ get you down.
Even if a few say that it is impossible for Peace
to overcome the greed of others;
Even if some tell you that it’s a nice thought,
but completely out of reach for humanity;
Even if most simply laugh in your face,
KNOW YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
We are growing in numbers every day.
It takes patience.
It takes practice.
It takes humility.
It takes unconditional love.
It takes sacrifice and service.
But you know that this is the way.
SPEAK OUT AND UP
Do not be afraid.
Do not be silenced.
From what I have seen,
those that are the most angry speak the loudest,
therefore those that are the angriest are heard the most.
This can no longer be.
It is time to let love be heard again.
I know I will probably endure ridicule for this,
but that is okay.
I cannot let the fear of what others may think
silence what I believe to be true.
Those that laugh, those that hate, those that are angry,
they are the ones who needs the most love, the most compassion.
Believe me, I understand it takes more than sitting on a yoga mat, smelling a flower and hoping for the best,
but I do believe it is possible for us to all find a common ground, a common agreement,
that for the sake of humanity, we have to put our anger aside and lift ourselves higher than that.
If you know the power I am talking about, then you understand,
If you don't...I hope you do one day.
I know I can’t be the only one who feels this way.

Well said now , hard to add much too it when I agree to all of it.
.. I am you and we are the one and the one is love and love is to be, to be means I am and ...
I personally do not mind being called a socialist hippie flower child ignoramus. If that is what I will have to be to spread love into the world then
so be it. I know what I know and care not about the judgers, dissapprovers, dislikers, try to change me ers, haters, infiltrate to prove a point ers,
punishers, the it sounds ok but ers or any others who feel they know something else and because of it feels the necessity to get rid of what I know.
Somehow this particular knowledge is more threatening than any other. It is as if people are programmed to go crazy when people mention love in this
way. *rolls eyes*. Well I'm not budging. I love you for no other reason than that you exist and we exist together. Now deal with it
Much love OP
thank you for taking time to spell it out I hope this thread get the S&F it deserves.

The more they mock and scorn, the more I know I'm on the right track. The move vocal they are in spreading their divisive rhetoric, the more they
reveal that they're too primitive to understand my mind.
I am a hippy, a socialist, an occultist, a petrol head and all-around unbridled unorthodox oddball.
The real change will be brought by the ones with the sword! The sword to cut through the systems. The ones that speak the truth...loudly, the ones
that are strong enough to take the ridicule. The ones who know or have known the darkness all too well! The ones that don't follow the rules and
are persecuted and ostracized.
"TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of
compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If
we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least
the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and
to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”
LOAD OF CRAP. DO YOU THINK THAT PEACE AND LOVE HAS WON WARS AGAINST TYRANTS AND WARLORDS. NO, IT WAS THE HARD WORK AND DEDICATION OF THE MEN WHO DIED
THOSE DAYS WHO BROUGHT ABOUT A NEW AGE FOR THE PEOPLE THEY WERE PROTECTING. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU LOVE OR HATE AS LONG AS YOU HAVE INDIFFERENCE
TOWARDS EVERYONE. LOVE IS A TOOL USED TO MOCK THE MASSES. THE ONLY WAY TO GOD THAT EVER WILL BE AND EVER HAS BEEN IS THE MIDDLE PATH. BEING ABLE TO
CHOOSE BETWEEN WHAT YOU KNOW IS RIGHT AND WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IS RIGHT. YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT ONLY LOVE AND NOT HATE FOR YOU SEE THAT EVERY
PERSON ON THIS EARTH HAS THE CAPACITY TO LOVE. BUT LOVE ETERNAL CANNOT BE EMBRACED UNTIL ALL EMBRACE IT. UNTIL THAT POINT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HATE.
SO WE MUST HATE THE HATER. FOR YOU MAY GIVE GOD WHAT HE WANTS. WHILE THE CHOSEN FEW GIVE HIM WHAT HE NEEDS.
