Well, so it is written.
This is a just a short message to the readers, especially those that have signed for email notification of new posts. Also, to those who have ticked the ‘like’ button. Thank you sincerely for your support and encouragement!
The Peace and Goodwill message may have originated in the Christian religious realm but to me, it is UNIVERSAL. So also is my website theme depicted by its title – Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, the Golden Rule.
I seem to have overlooked another fundamental right – freedom! Freedom to live our lives in Peace, but not freedom to do evil!
We are unfortunately so far from achieving such goals, that it feels futile in publishing these messages with any expectation of influencing anybody. Especially those in the world that are actively doing the opposite, destroying any chance of peace and sometimes pretending goodwill but acting to the contrary. Often calling themselves “Christians” but disregarding any semblance of adherence to the simplest Christian doctrine (the ‘Golden Rule’).
Basically preaching (hopefully not quite that) to the converted. Yet there are those who believe that energy from our good thoughts does transfer into the environment and perhaps also into cyberspace.
To all accounts we are heading for a rough 2012 as far as our civilization is concerned. So far along the path to annihilation of much that is good with so much evil intent. By the time sufficient awareness becomes widespread, the situation will likely be so bad that the difficulty of reversing, or even reducing the damage, will be immense.
It is certainly not sufficient that there are many of us following and promoting a ‘righteous’ path but we can be proud of the principles we uphold. We are on the side of ‘good’ and truth and doing the best we can, I hope.
For the forthcoming New Year(s), I wish all peace-loving people, of whatever race, religion or country, much luck and strong energies towards a better world for all. Strengths to withstand the onslaught of the ‘ungodly’ and stamina to survive with pride and dignity.
In simple terms, Merry Christmas, Safe Travelling and a Happy New Year.
