Human Nature

Called Home

I become tired of what is labeled as “human nature”,
as if human nature was a limitation to be over come.
I have heard it is “human nature” to be envious, greedy,
and selfish, as if “human nature” were the explanation-
and not the conscious choices one makes.

I want all to remember that empathy, compassion, kindness,
and generosity are all, too, to be found within the nature of humans.

When we witness these, perhaps, we can nod, smile and state, “Ah, yes, that is human nature.”

War

All the Voices

A man who is at war and fighting for his God externally
is a man who is not at peace with his God internally.


When a man is at peace internally with his God, war in the name of God has no resonance for him.
Those who war externally in the name of the God are displacing their own internal conflict with God upon the world.
