On my mind…

All his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted and said, “No, I shall go down to Sheol to my son, mourning.” Thus his father wept for him. Genesis 37:35

Today funerals are taking place that should not. My soul is sorrowful for those who mourn.Whether we believe in the existence of God or not; whether we side with this or that side of politics; the one thing certain is that we, through our collective consciousness and expressed will, have somehow created a society in which such a startling evil can manifest.

I choose the divine for my solace; but let each of us choose whatever force, of God or self, that compels us toward good and not evil. Let each of us show compassion, mercy, tolerance and respect toward one another in a unified will and hope  that what we put forward into the world, in turn, we will receive.
