devotions: war or peace

Dedicated to the children of Syria, many of whom are being cared for in hospitals in Israel.

"How is it possible for men to fight from morning until evening, killing each other, shedding the blood of their fellow-men: and for what object? To gain possession of a part of the earth! ... The highest of created beings fighting to obtain the lowest form of matter, earth! ...

I charge you all that each one of you concentrate all the thoughts of your heart on love and unity. ... Thoughts of war bring destruction to all harmony, well-being, restfulness and content.

Thoughts of love are constructive of brotherhood, peace, friendship and happiness."


~ Bahá'i Writings

    and are not.
    you'd think after thousands of years man would have grown taller inside. and more wise.
    ego.
    greed.
    mean.
    godless in the name of god.
    despair.

    1. Hi Tammy!

      It is so very kind of you to check in! Life has increased its busy-ness considerably - I am preparing to relocate back to the states in May and there is much to be done.

      Sister and friend are recovering nicely, however another dear friend's daughter is not doing well at all, so I am using some of my time to continue sending healing thoughts and prayers to all back home!

      Life is like the ocean - sometimes calm and soothing with a feeling of utter contentment. Other times it is choppy and churning, tossing about and hanging on until it passes. :-)

      Thank you for being so thoughtful!
      Debi
