No Religion; Just Love!

I saw two photos on Facebook yesterday. The photos were about the unrest in Egypt. One photo showed Christians protecting Muslims as they were praying. Another photo showed Muslims forming a human ring around a Catholic church as mass was going on.

 I was touched by those  photos. They were beautiful. They were powerful. More than words can ever say, those pictures showed love.

 Yes, we have conflicts. We fight. We kill and we destroy. But despite our differences, we also know how to love. And that gives us hope.

Someday, somehow we will learn to appreciate the richness of our diversity and accept that, despite our differences, we are all one. 

We all have the same dreams and aspirations. Our body is of the same stuff that the stars we see at night are made of. If we only allow the good and the noble in us -- our higher selves -- to prevail we can all live in peace and harmony.

Just look at these pictures.

  1. These are people of honest faith! More of that is needed.

  2. Yes I agree Mitchell Hegman! Those of honest faith are the ones who truly get what most if not all religions espouse -- purity, hope, love. Mahalo much for stopping by and commenting. Aloha and Namaste!

    I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
    I hope some day you'll join us
    And the world will be as one"...

    1. I was thinking PRECISELY of John Lennon's "Imagine" as I was doing this blog. Thanks for your comment Paul!

  4. My thoughts exactly Paul. Imagine.
