the true Presence of Providence.
Eloquently put my friend.
Hit the nail on the head.
IMHO The reactionary culture that dwells within Islam is born of a deep fear within its clerical classes. It is necessary to incite violence and
extreme reactions to anything that questions its validity.
The builder of a house of cards will not tolerate anyone who tries to open a window,
lest the slightest breeze topples his entire creation. A philosophy that will not tolerate questioning is critically short of answers.
I am not a religious person, I do no harm and try not to hurt any living creature and I believe that anyone is entitled to believe what they want to
believe, whatever keeps away the dread and fear of inevitable oblivion.
As long as it harm no-one else or restrict their path in life.
But a true sense of spirituality does not come from a book, peace comes from understanding that we are, all of us, part of a huge mysterious universe
and we make our own paradise while we live. Kindness, tolerance and a peaceful heart allows us to accept death and if there is something else beyond,
(not one single being knows what) then our consciousness can approach it with a clean and open heart and mind.
To imagine that a being who created all we can comprehend gives a flying squirell how a human being dresses is beyond absurdity and makes me sad for
people who are born into such indoctrination.
Sadly it seems that we are increasingly being sucked into a vortex where conflict will become a reality and little anecdotes of Islamic related
events will appear more frequently.
Conflicting ideologies rarely co-exist indefinitely, and I fear storm clouds are gathering and may be darker than humanity has ever witnessed.
