As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The truth is that the other day, I wrote about the idea of Spiritual Unity, that I named the Spiritual Revolution. These thoughts took the form of the related readings as grouped above. After writing about the idea of unity, I also wrote that there is still much work to be done to get to the point of Spiritual Unity. Part of the work is to unsettle points that require the work. For example: we can relate these thoughts to the sectarian violence within a religion, such as my earlier example of the Muslim Sunni and Shia sects. We can also think about the violence in Israel, that took place in Gaza, Palestine, or the recent chemical attacks in Syria. A common element within all of the examples that I have mentioned is the violence, death, and destruction, Muslims are facing. Without unsettling where there needs to be points of improvement, or the causes of violence, the patterns of violence, how can we ever reach points of unity? But with the unsettling, also arrives intention. The intention that words spoken, and actions taken are for the purposes of peace, love, harmony, and unity.
If we introspect history, we will understand that not everything that took place was correct. We can think about how history has allowed certain narratives to be heard, and silenced others. Whilst we cannot always be proud of histories, with a present and a future, we have an opportunity to shape the future that we currently imagine, and for that there needs to be unity. It does involve unsettling points to carry out the work that is required, but it is always with the intention for reaching a harmonious unity.
