Planting Glory, Abundance and Peace

For Americans, the freedom to say what we want is upheld in the First Amendment.  The amendment gives us legal protection to express our viewpoints and practice our religions.

Just as some use their freedom to plant the invasive weeds of intolerance, there are other Americans who use their freedom to plant olive trees.

I do not despair as the news about the creators of chaos’ antics fills the air.  There are those of us who are ensuring the deep rooted Love of our Mothers takes hold, one olive tree at a time.

“Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”    Bible, Mathew 5.3

“Then tell me about the seed that you sow in the ground.”   Koran 56:63

“When words are both kind and true, they will change the world.”  Buddha

“Non-violence in others can be achieved by being firmly rooted in non-violence in yourself.”   2.35 Yoga Sutras, Patanjali

    Chaos and more mess looms around the Middle East. One can only pray that events eventually settle down and peace prevails..

      It’s a pity that the squeaky wheels get the attention. I hope people will begin to think for themselves and acknowledge the pain that each of us holds inside. We must treat each other with compassion to begin to heal the rifts between us.

    Jesus said that he was the way, the truth and the life and that no man can come to God other than through him. He said that he was the only way to God. Read the Bible and see what else he said.

      Thanks for commenting.

      And thanks for reminding me to read the Bible. I particularly like what Jesus had to say in this verse.

      “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

      You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Mathew 5:43-48

      Namaste

      Hello Eva

      I didn’t realize till now you replied.

      A question – you seem to be searching and you are ok with multiple religions. Jesus words which you have read clearly state that he is the “only” way to God. Why don’t you believe this?
