So many problems in our world are caused by selfishness. How many wars have been fought for reasons other than what we have been told? How many problems did we create ourselves?
The snow falls. The sun shines.
It doesn't fight. It doesn't steal.
What the world needs is unconditional love, healing, and awareness of why all this has happened. As Alexander Solzhenitsyn said of his times, "Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened."
The world needs God.
We are not just all by ourselves. We are a force together, meant to be together, intended to be in connection with our Creator. It is so simple. How many times do we see kindness and it touches us deeply? Each person, anywhere, kindness, love, empathy, selflessness, these things move us all.
Why are we so similar if we are supposed to be Us and Them?
Today marks 30 years since the Berlin Wall was torn down by ordinary people. Do you remember it?The date is seared in my mind. It was the beginning of the end of Communism in that area of the world. (Though it seems to have just moved elsewhere.)
