i fear God, this i choose. the rest of living is acts, and knowing "the way".
When I am afraid of anything else, i know that this fear can be conquered, and I embrace the changes in myself, with this Grace. (I know, to serve is to be grateful with His gift, that I have Love to give)
Religion and Politics are the same, when they are described as two faces of one coin, gravid images of a power larger than themselves (ourselves); where we came from and where we are going to...
...in my mind, Politics and Religion, (so far) are anathema to God. but i am lucky, having been introduced to Religion by way of the Greek Orthodox Church i like socialistic, and in that sense as well, it is blessing that in Canada my education expanded so that the experience is enriching with other believers, be it Atheists, Wiccans, Native People, Buddhists, etc., in a purpose that is Universal, which includes my own Freewill.
Only recently, in all of Mankind's history, with the Modern Age, have we begun to define the word Humanity. Wrong and inhuman, with the slaughter of millions in the First World War, a generation gave their lives in this Horror, knowing, believing that as Men we could no longer fight ourselves.
"LEST WE FORGET".
And in our Humility, Charity, as Humans, like THEM, we must fight with our life against the real enemy: Hunger, Disaster, Ignorance (now 'Global Warming'), and Disease.
The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind...
Williams James (1842-1910)
