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 was thinking about a spiritual revolution.I thought that this is needed to happen, because when we use the umbrella term of Spirituality, for any belief or practice we are paving the way for allowing the beliefs of all without contending that one belief or unbelief is better than the other. I say this because I think of the many wars, sectarian divides that have, and are still taking place because of religion. But I don't think religion or having some sort of belief is a bad thing. Belief is a mechanism that grounds the soul. In my view it is essential for moral and spiritual development. Sometimes it is our human experience that teaches us, even if we don't hold a belief. We all have a soul, spirit, or that inner voice. A part of the self that cannot be seen, but also requires to be developed.
But for the spiritual revolution to work, it really entails the idea of respect. Respecting each others belief as sacred as the others. It is not intended to abolish one's belief, but to continue with traditions, practices that are carried out to instill belief, to recognize each others faith. For example: We have reached probably the most sacred time of the Christian calendar, and even more so for the Catholic Christian. After the time of ending for Lent, and Good Friday, weekend, and Easter Monday. Both a time of deep reflection about the suffering, and rising of the spirit of Jesus Christ. By reaching out, being respectful to all who observe the traditions and beliefs simply shows respect. The respect shown to another faith does not diminish your own faith.
At a time where there is a multitude of diversity, religious, and cultural, it only seems correct to think of ways to integrate peacefully and respectfully, with each others religiosity, than to continue with religious warfare and sectarian divides. And as it is the time of Easter, I call upon the deep reflection of the holy blood that has numbed my body, only to hope for the spirits rising to that of happiness, hope, peace, and tolerance.
