I am saddened by the events of human misconduct and associated tragic consequences during the most recent past, not forgetting the distant past. There are diverse points of view to deter such events from happening in the future. Some perspectives make sense, and others simply do not. I realize we were not born to think alike, although I truly believe that we are endowed with the potential to cultivate a compassionate attitude - uncolored by fear, doubt, skepticism, anxiety and a host of negative emotions that arise due to the lack of understanding with regard to our primary human responsibility towards other fellow beings.
The only way to overcome these dire circumstances, is to dispel our ignorance entrenched with negative emotional traits. We must stand together with immense wisdom, filled with compassion. In our efforts to do so, the following are some poignant reminders.
We must begin to dispel all negative aspects or causes that obstruct peacefulness in life - by way of adversities and atrocities - at the level of the grass roots, the family.
Compassion must begin in the home. Children are born with innocence. Their innocence must be preserved with thoughts, words, and deeds of non-violence towards all creatures of sentience.
Parents are the primary mentors and caretakers of children. They must be prepared with intelligent reasoning to carry out their life's call to raise wholesome children with gentle habit-energies.
Failed parenting bring about heart-wrenching consequences that affect the entire fabric of existence. Children are at the mercy of their parents and they do not deserve to become the beneficiaries of parental shortfalls and shortsightedness. Poor choices of sportsmanship may only bring sad returns to haunt us for generations to come. This is for every parent's personal reflection.
Children must be nurtured with LOVE of the highest caliber of mind, that is selflessness. They ought to be raised with the wisdom of unconditional LOVE so that they may touch all of life with the power of kindness and compassion; all sentient beings understand the language of LOVE.
Compassion is the sublime principle in operation within the vast scheme of the universe; its harmony and equilibrium rests upon the nature of its users, and abusers. There is no reason to live in fear and doubt if LOVE alone pervades the mind.
All combative objects and acts along the notion of defense belong to the unwise. One must refrain from pursuing this path.
Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
