Is it because all of us, the entire humanity, share some part of a genome that enriches our feelings for each other? But what of the murderers? Do they feel? Do they cringe when some drops of blood splatters on their bodies when they are beheading innocent people?
Religion and politics, such strange bedfellows. One preaches and the other taunts. Why does one have the temerity to draw cartoons to insult other religions or prophets? Does that mean that the cartoonist instigates the cycle of murder? Would it not be better if people didn’t insult other religions, were tolerant to color and race, and smiled and loved? Would that be so difficult? Education, understanding, being cognizant of other faiths and beliefs is the greatest FEELING one can have. That sense embraces all humanity. It does not denigrate any one, and elevates all people into a different sphere of empathy.
I live in my soul. I love this soul of mine. I am not afraid of dying, but I am afraid of hurting others. I want to reach out to each and every one I know, and allow them to touch me, and let them feel these waves of soft energy that binds my form to my soul.
