“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” – Albert Einstein
Where will we be if we are not advocates for animals, children and the meek? How could we live with ourselves? What if everyone put their weapons away and came to their senses? What barbaric, cynical and careless answer is War? Will we set our efforts and money into cleaning up the planet instead? How do we educate and feed people?
Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love, once said on the Middle East, “The road to spirituality is not a reason for apathy.” She interprets A Course in Miracles in her books and speeches. “The Course” as many call the large tome, is a provoking text that states love is truth and perceptions are illusions. Conflict is a plea for Love, “The Course” instructs. Problems do not get settled in an atmosphere of terror, panic or hostility. Peaceful solutions and answers derive from love and understanding. We are both insensitive and negligent to the plight of the downtrodden masses when we do nothing.
