Love heals. If you doubt it, you need more of it. How do you get more of it? By giving more of it. Love is not just for romantic relationships, not just for 'family'. Love is not just for people. Beneath the colourful emotions, socialized behaviours and cultured concepts of being 'partners' in love, love is the recognition of our own soul matter in another being. The more recognition, the greater the degree of attachment. Every body, every living thing on earth is made up of essentially the same energy and particle and spirit matter. Here's the magic. We recognise this bond wherever we look for it. Next time you see a leaf, consider the veins. Next time you're in the company of an animal consider the sensation, (sight, sound, feeling,) of breathing. Look into the eyes of every creature whenever, wherever possible and be open to the recognition of all that we, ourselves are made up of. Take a detailed account of every mother-infant relationship, every friendship, every co-existence, every life bound spirit. It's been said before that love knows no boundaries..
Is there any reason why I shouldn't be friends with a black guy or a Muslim? Is there any reason why I shouldn't be friends with a big dog, a rat or a fox? Because one has been said to attack somebody once? Well, no, that's not a good enough reason. There's no doubt that somebody my height, my colour, my shape attacked somebody once. That doesn't make me bad. I can be a friend wherever I find a friend, regardless of what clothing, skin or body that someone is wearing. Is there any reason why this is wrong? No. Not at all.
Just because we believe it has always been done, doesn't mean we should continue to do it. Change is necessary for betterment. If something having been the case in history should be a case for it to continue, then let rape continue, let murder continue. There was a time when we were torturous, terrible monsters to our own, a time when we treated other human beings with the darkest of disgrace. In this present day it's difficult to comprehend that we were ever so cruel. Likewise, there will be a time in the future when we reflect on having been so cruel to other creatures. For the time being we are lost somewhere, defying the truth that deep down we know. We hide, we turn a blind eye, we conceal and contain the horror, we try to justify the crimes that we commit upon beautiful, gentle and innocent creatures. Consciousness IS developing, narrow minds ARE opening, conscience IS growing, compassion IS expanding, Man IS evolving and there IS hope and drive to vanish the shame that is the slaughterhouse.
When we read the newspapers, watch the broadcasts, soak up the stories, we find ourselves repressed, depressed and confused. We find ourselves envious, anxious, angry and fearful. If we believe all that is circulated by the media we become loyal supporters of the oppressors, passionate haters of the innocents, faithful believers of bullshit and puppets of evil. Mind management is greater than necessary. I believe it is wise to question all that we are told. If we give our time to all that is spoon fed to us, we allow our minds to be hooked, hot wired, taken from us, remotely controlled.. I look around and everywhere I see stewing or stewed, fermented, tormented souls and marinated morons.. And then I see you, precious few.. You, who reconsiders.. You, who questions the credibility of a story, you, who never forgets that there are always at least two sides.. You, who feels before you think and thinks before you speak. Beautiful you, who wonders, who looks with wide open eyes, an open heart, an open mind. You, who wanders from the crowd and who seeks something which FEELS true. I love you! I can't get enough of you and the world needs hundreds of thousands more people like you.
