Regarding the Ongoing Catastrophes in the Middle East, Most Notably in Gaza
I suppose it's time I write something again.
Regarding the situation in Gaza, the Bible story of King Solomon threatening to cut the baby in half comes to mind. I wonder who, among Jews or Muslims (or Christians, even), would step up and show true motherhood (and how that would manifest) right about now.
There is a law that is more profound than Islamic law. A law more powerful than any so far revealed* in any religion, yet hidden in view so that only those who would wish can know it.
I await a humanity that cares to seek for this law through consensus from establishable common ground. Else, destruction. Even utter annihilation. Every beautiful garden must have a dangerous guardian, and I'm trying not to be too attached to the outcome.
It does bring a tear to my eye and to my heart to reflect on all we love that we'd lose, and all we've lost already.
Lyrics: "This is a beautiful garden. It has a dangerous guardian." from Ode to Glen Eden
Agape to all,
*This is true only because although the texts do reveal this law, they cannot force any person to accept the revelation. The ears have a difficult time hearing it amid the deafening noise floor of life in 2012. I believe, however, that the heart of every human will begin to seek out this law, because it longs to know it. This law is simple to find, actually. Just ask your neighbors about it, and your heart will begin to know.
