We, in the United States, are not the only country that has widespread disparagement of seemingly opposing religions. The travesty of violence against the country’s long-persecuted Rohingya Muslims by the Buddhists of Myanmar is an example in a long list that stretches across millenniums.
If religious and political leaders of the world don’t stop using the common people as political agendas to promote their personal wealth, the earth will surely be destroyed. If the common people don’t get smart and take individual and group action, then we are dancing the dance with the politicians and big business in the destruction of the earth.
Mother Earth does not need humans to survive. She will live on without us. If the religions of the world do not begin to focus on their commonalities rather than their differences, we, as human beings, will become ancient history. And, those who do nothing to stop this destructive behavior are guilty as those who directly contribute to it.
Those who think Jesus or Muhammad or Buddha or whoever is going to save you from this fate are sadly mistaken. Rather the Great Spirits weep at the extremely poor choices we, as the human species, continue to make. We as humans must accept responsibility for the thousands of years of wars and the more recent destruction of Mother Earth promulgated through our own greediness or Mother Earth will eliminate us. It is the natural Order of the Universe.
Remember, we are all in this world together and together we light the way. NOT ‘fight and kill’ the way. NOT ‘pollute and waste’ the way.
