One God of All!

The more you study various religious books, you find more commonality in the various teachings than differences. I actually wrote an article about commonalities between Islamic, Christian and Hindu scriptures that was later published in a US Institute for Peace' book. Yes, there are differences among religions but not so big that they would compel people to kill thousands on the other side! And yet those who want power at any cost have been able to convince their simple followers to fervently hate others in the name of God. I want to emphasize though this post is not only about those who might be associated with Islam but also those who are associated with Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism and other religions. If God really created all, then why would He ask us to kill each other or torture each other's children that too to please Him? Does He really need humans to defend His honor and existence? Wars and conflicts in the name of God are the most ridiculous examples of human manipulation! 

You are white as snow,
Yet more colorful than a peacock,
Fluid as a river,
And solid like a rock!

You're so much more
Than the Sunday Church,
The morning Azaan,
And any religious splurge!

You are beyond any definition,
And all human understanding,
You cannot be bound in a book,
Doctrine or a building!

They call you merciful,
Yet wage wars in your name!
They say you sacrificed your life,
And ownership on power they claim!

How do you feel,
When your name is exploited
When your love is divided,
Do you feel disappointed?

If you created all of us,
How do you pick favorites?
By our religious brands
Or by faith and good acts?

Don't you think
Dividing your love,
For our greed for power,
Is simply ridiculous?

May you turn,
Our jealousy and hatred,
Into love and tolerance, 
For all as they were created!

Claim Positivity and Act with it!

Sometimes when you let yourself be led by God and let go of things that hold you back, you are able to find inspiration in places and/or from people you didn't expect it! What a liberating feeling it is!

Yes, the same old insight we have heard so many times and yet we fail to practice it, mostly because we are not very thoughtful about where our focus should be. Letting go of thoughts that are not that important in our lives and yet eat us from within is the thing to do and it is possible to do it. All we need to do is to take a step back, look at the situation in an objective fashion (include a trusted friend, if needed), take a couple of deep breaths and make a decision to let go...! Sometimes it takes a little practice before you're fully successful. 

As you let go of what is not of value, focus on what is really important to you. Sometimes we are so stuck with trivial things that we lose sight of what is fundamental to who we are. As a result, we suffer pain, become negative, lose our creativity and charisma, what a needless tragedy for us and those who are around us! 

So, let's collect all the positivity from within and around us in the flowers, trees, birds, people we admire and heaven above and combine it with an action to make a difference! Would you do it today?

Texas Shooting - Take Action People

Once again, there was mass shooting in the US. For more information, please visit: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-4188051

So please remember not to blame the gun or how it may have facilitated the killing of at least 20 innocent people. Also, don't forget 'guns don't kill people, people kill people'! Very importantly don't even think about how a gun could increase the impact manyfold compared to person with a stone/knife in their hand. And please, don't mention about other countries where they implemented stricter gun control laws and haven't had an incident of mass shooting since. Saving lives is not as important as saving the right to have guns, you just don't get it, liberals! You shouldn't be so political and must protect gun laws because it is our right as Americans whether or not healthcare or good quality education is! Bottom line, lives, health and education will never be able to defeat guns or the money we make of them! Period.

I am sorry for being so sarcastic above and this is not my writing style but I don't how to express my pain and anger that is increasing with every new mass shooting that takes place in this beautiful country! I can't even begin to think of the pain the family members of those who got killed today in Texas. I really hope that the people of this country wake up and take control of the future and well-being of their children! Guns and monies can never be more important than lives, we must learn to priotize right! A handful of people shouldn't be allowed to play with the destiny of the majority. The weapon making industry is fueling the wars in the foriegn land and mass shootings domestically! It is time for We the People to take action!
