[Love] learn or burn...

  “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ― Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches No child is born with prejudice and hate in his or her heart. All are born wanting to connect with others. Just as love is learned when children are cherished and nurtured, hate is also learned by messages and cues that are both verbal and nonverbal. As hate is learned, so it can be unlearned. “The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ― Elie Wiesel

[Suffering] The hell you say?

“What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.” ― Fyodor Dostoevsk Everyone has the right to create their own hell as long as they can keep others out of it.  “Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.” ― Aldous Huxley

Why are You in Hell Pilgrim? We create our own hell -- it is the sum of all our decisions (exception: sometimes we are placed there). How do we escape even if we are not the cause? The only thing anyone needs to do in order to escape hell is to love God*, his creation, each other and have faith(be positive). We are to understand that there is one God and that God created all things -- that is it. We play with fire when we claim to love God, but not all his creation. If you hate your neighbor, you hate God and you have arrived in hell. *My definition of what God is an 'all is one' belief. God is all and in all. God manifests itself in every created thing. You are a manifestation of God, as well as your dog, you cat a pine tree and a blade of grass. The spirit of God is omnipresent. All is in one, and one is in all. Of course your version of God may differ. 

[Racism] The Math of Authoritarianism is Division

“In this country American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate.”  ― Toni Morrison Your happiness cannot be purchased by another race's misery. “Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. It's just plain wrong.” ― Muhammad Ali
