“I will have justice for what they did to me.” Does this not epitomize what is wrong with individuals today? “It’s not my fault. Society did this to me, and society will pay!” What do you think every single young white boy thinks before they unload on their classmates? “It’s not my fault. Society did this to me, and society will pay!” Where is this mentality getting us? How does this Progress us Forward?
President Obama said, “You didn’t get their on your own. Someone else made that happen.” But, Einstein said, “Cease attributing your problems to your environment & learn to exercise your will and your personal responsibility.” Which one is the genius? Buddha advises, “Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” Taken further our thoughts lead to words, our words to actions, our actions to habit, our habit to character, and our character to Destiny.” We reap what we sow. Love and Justice are One. But, no one wants to admit it. It sounds good in theory, but when it comes to holding ourselves accountable – yeah good luck with that. Especially when we have a team of reporters who leave you with effects and not the cause. Journalism is Dead. Just thought you might like to know before you go reading an article that attempted journalism and failed, miserably. ”
“I will have justice.” Do you even know what justice is? James Allen wrote, “Justice is not separate from love; love is not separate from justice. The essential oneness of the two principles is simply expressed in the divine edict: “Whatsoever a man swath, that shall he also reap.” It is in accordance both with perfect love and perfect justice that man should reap the good results of his good deeds, and the bad results of his bad deeds. All men admit this theoretically, though the majority refuse to recognize the operation of such a law in the universe, arguing, when overtaken with trouble, that in their case they are not reaping what they have sown, as they have never done anything to call for such misfortune, but are suffering innocently (unjustly), or are afflicted through the wrong-doing of others.”
I have no problem with people protesting. But, when they continually shove their outrage down other people’s throats, they are no longer protesting. They are being selfish, ignorant, and obnoxious. They have become useless to themselves and the world they profess to save. How can you direct the world, when you can’t even direct yourself? It is impossible. Did Jesus need to stop a Parade, loot, and burn down his community to change the world? For people to follow him, to believe in him? Did Buddha? Did Mother Teresa? Did Lao Tzu? James Allen? The answer is no, if you are still curious. They changed the world because they were what they wanted the world to be. If you wish for forgiveness, forgive. You are what the world is. Jesus taught us about forgiveness. He forgave the very people carrying out his execution. He stood on a foundation of faith and purpose and meditated on love, compassion, and peace. He lived his life the way he wanted the world to be. In your darkerst moment, when you have hit rock botton and nowhere else to go but up, Jesus is there comforting you and reminding you, “We got this”.
Buddha taught us, “Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” Taken further our thoughts lead to words, our words to actions, our actions to habit, our habit to character, and our character to Destiny. Perfect Justice. You want to improve the world? Improve yourself. You want to save the world, save yourself. Look around you. You created that. You are where you are and who you are because you put yourself there. You are the Cause and the Effect. The Reason and the The Remedy.
