Are you ready to listen - letís talk?

Are you ready to listen - letís talk?

Really can someone tell me: Where are we going as a human race? What do you think? Take a moment out of your busy day and try to reflect on that very small question that we always try to avoid. What am I doing with my life as an individual?

We live in a society that is becoming increasingly built up on emptiness, vagueness, superficiality and jealousy. At one point it will be just like putting a needle in that inflated balloon and we will all explode. Either everyone is blind, or just playing dumb, or maybe I, myself, am from another planet! You figure it out!!!

I do hope someone hasrepparttar guts to pick uprepparttar 132612 pieces when things do explode. I understand your frustration. ďI canít do anythingĒ, or ďI canít helpĒ, is what most of us will say. But sitting crossed legged and armed is NOTrepparttar 132613 answer either.

In my opinion, my generation, and I am just 40 years old, seems to have given up. Perhaps yes, perhaps no! You can berepparttar 132614 judge. Many of us are still dwelling on events that happened to us at a young age. We try to help ourselves, but sometimes scars are deep inside of us and it is hard to accept and forgive, and just let go in order to move on. Live your life inrepparttar 132615 present moment and to your full potential. Life is complicated enough as it is. Really think and be honest about it! Iíd hate to believe that our generation has just given up. It just shouldnít berepparttar 132616 case. I do believe that our society is going backwards. Our religions are becoming obsolete and are not adapting to changes in our society. They are afraid that they are going to lose credibility inrepparttar 132617 process. By sitting onrepparttar 132618 sidelines, they ARE going to lose credibility for not having taken action. Every time someone mentions any religion to me, all I feel or envision are wars, control over their own congregation, limitations onrepparttar 132619 human soul, and their EGO. Religions should work forrepparttar 132620 people and I find that this is no longerrepparttar 132621 case.

How about our government? Show me one government that is really HONEST and that is working forrepparttar 132622 benefit ofrepparttar 132623 human race and not for its own individual political interests. Nowrepparttar 132624 new wave is large corporations starting to show their true colors by makingrepparttar 132625 lives of their employees and shareholders miserable, withrepparttar 132626 latest stock market scams and a diversion fromrepparttar 132627 true facts. We will then start seeing a shift from scams andrepparttar 132628 economy to talk of wars. Atrepparttar 132629 endrepparttar 132630 rich stay rich andrepparttar 132631 rest GOD will bless them.

It is funny, and what fascinates me about our politicians is one thing. They take part in helping destroying lives and families and separating children from their families. A decision to go and destroy a country or create a war, just many times for personal gain or any hidden agenda and then inrepparttar 132632 next minute you will see them holding a bible in one hand and their wifeís hand inrepparttar 132633 other. They are followed by their children on their way to church to pray, and forrepparttar 132634 press to see. Pray for what! Forgiveness, or showing off as good guys underrepparttar 132635 umbrella ofrepparttar 132636 Free World orrepparttar 132637 Capitalistic world. I bet you that deep inside that politician he or she will feel a deep, but vague, sense of emptiness regardless of how much money or prestige that they have. They must have an overwhelming EGO.

Well, my friends that is all wrong! Confessing or talking to your priest is NOT going to provide you with forgiveness you as much as your own Soul will! Some of you might say I donít believe in all of this crap you call Soul. Iíll just leave that here for now, but Iíll get back to that subject another time and Iíll make my point clearer.

As we may have already discovered, our society is lead by governments, and religious leaders. We as humankind have been regressing for many years. Now with all ofrepparttar 132638 technological nonsense we now have we are still not doing anything to change it. For you and I to make any sense out of this, letís go back torepparttar 132639 foundation of things. Are you ready to listen, if so letís talk?

You might have enough baggage or scars from your own experiences so that you become numb and care less about what is going on around you. In my opinion, you can make allrepparttar 132640 difference inrepparttar 132641 world. Just stand up and start to care about yourself first, and then forrepparttar 132642 Human Souls in your surroundings. Things have to start somewhere, which begins with YOU and ME as individuals. When we arenít doing anything about our own circumstances, andrepparttar 132643 environment, then nothing is going to change. Donít get me wrong here. Donít protest and brake windows and hurt each other because thatís notrepparttar 132644 answer either. When you do not love yourself, and then do not expect anyone to love you. Start by treating people around you as Souls and NOT as a nationality, ethnic group or part of some kind of a status structure.

De-program what you had been taught all these years, and how we have been known to label people. We just need to start seeing people as people, seeing people as Souls, seeing people as Human Beings. They are just like you and I, just Souls in a human body regardless what we see onrepparttar 132645 outer layer of their body. We must STOP labeling each other in order to start to seerepparttar 132646 bigger picture, which is to work towards a new understanding of life and a better way to function together. When we accomplish this, then we will start to understand our life, our purpose in it, and what role we play as a Soul inrepparttar 132647 bigger picture we can our life evolution.

Regardless of your religious background, your culture, orrepparttar 132648 color of your skin, you were told many things according to rules and regulations that were set into place. May I remind you that many, if not all, of these regulations were made by man? I do not believe any ofrepparttar 132649 prophecies that came into this plane to wake those souls atrepparttar 132650 time of their arrival to this plane were meant to promote hate, prejudice, labeling, and anger. They all came with a common message of love, peace and compassion. What Man seems to think isrepparttar 132651 right way, or what should really work in our present world, isnít consistent with this message. Change is desperately needed and has to be started by us. You and me!

Life can be very simple. We are a species that knows best on how to complicate issues for capital gain. Generation, after generation, come and go and always seem to leave us with some new misery, hate, frustration, anger. We keep passing those negative qualities torepparttar 132652 next generation. This is unfortunate but it is a fact of life. Please correct me if I am wrong. I might be stupid, but I am not blind. I see whatís around me, even with my eyes closed. All our technology is worth nothing, if our values in life have no value in our mind. Our respect of another human Soul seemingly has no respect to that Soul unless it belongs torepparttar 132653 same religious group or its community. But even inside this group or religion we can see envy, jealousy, talking behind each otherís back, and being two faced about it.

Who Is A Terrorist?

Written by Arthur Zulu

There are angels and angels. Likerepparttar cherubs. Likerepparttar 132610 seraphs. And Satanrepparttar 132611 devil, himself. There are prophets and prophets. Like Jesus Christ. Like Muhammad. Like Siddhartha Guatama. And there are terrorists and terrorists. Like. . . . Don't think that I am going to mention Osama Bin Laden. Or some madman wielding a bomb, a gun , or a knife. No! Because there have come to be many terrorists after September 11, 2001.

The Shorter Oxford Dictionary on Historical Principles definesrepparttar 132612 word terrorist as " anyone who attempts to further his views by a system of coercive intimidation". But today that definition is relative. Because we are all terrorists! Forgetrepparttar 132613 Palestinian suicide bombers. Ignorerepparttar 132614 Muslim fundamentalists. Do not think of those ones doing havoc in Indonesia, Russia or East Africa. And remember notrepparttar 132615 several "terrorist" groups mushrooming aroundrepparttar 132616 world. Yes, forget them.

Now, look around you, and you will come to see that you do not have to go too far to look for a terrorist. Because that husband who turns his wife into a punching bag is a terrorist. Because that smoker who carelessly threw awayrepparttar 132617 butt of his burning cigarette intorepparttar 132618 bush, which eventually starts a conflagration is a terrorist. Becauserepparttar 132619 worker who goes on strike to demand better pay is also a terrorist. The list has not ended.

If you are suspected of producing nuclear weapons, especially if you live in North Korea, you are a terrorist. If it is thought that you are hiding weapons of mass destruction, and your country is called Iraq, you are a terrorist. If you are an Arab Muslim fromrepparttar 132620 Middle-East, you are a terrorist. If you are an undocumented immigrant inrepparttar 132621 United States, you must be a terrorist. I am not yet finished.
