Many beliefs divide us … religion, politics race, sex, etc., … but the one thing with the power to unite us, even if we can’t yet love everyone, is the choice to respect … to value … all life and then use our heads and hearts to figure out how to live peacefully.
Remember, we know this now … only bullies, who are those the most frightened and/or broken, result to offensive acts towards themselves and others.
Science has also informed us we are only yet using a very small percentage of our brain’s ability, so instead of ramping up fire power, how about ramping up some brain power?
A simple way to start is “Connecting the Dots … with The Respect Principle” because the idea is logical, practical, and even compassionate and requires only one thing … that we stop treating some people as more valuable and others as less … in our words and actions, which means trashing other people’s beliefs.
If people are not hurting other people with their beliefs, the answer is simple … leave them alone and pour that energy into dealing with the need to trash other people.
People, we are all so much more than this.
