Exploring the soul and it's reaches.

Sacrilege

If only people would defend helpless, persecuted or less fortunate individuals as much as they defend their religion or their favorite sports team. It seems as though we are picking the wrong battles. We are fighting for something but it is as if we have no cause. We fight to fight, without reason. We have forgotten what’s important. Rather than wanting to always be right, maybe we should strive to understand that others may make different choices. It’s okay to disagree, but there comes a point when our disagreeing leads to nothing but inaction and more fighting. Our efforts become misdirected and we no longer see the picture in front of us. Instead, we become blinded by what we want to see, by what we are told to see. Look past the differences because there are none. The real battle begins with ourselves. Know yourself and you will know others.
