Putting All Religious Differences Aside
There is so much negative energy in the world based on religious and cultural differences. Rather than humanity being whole as Jesus’s heart, we have become divided like Satan’s heart. This is because we rather judge others rather than love them and be understanding of their ways. Putting all religious differences aside, we need to stop judging others and start working with each other.
Christians criticize muslims for not believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and muslims criticize christians for reading the bible which has been corrupted by man. And others criticize jews because they took away the land of the Palestinian people. And don’t forget the Hindus who practice polytheism.
Do you see how many differences there are and we haven’t even touched upon all religious beliefs? All these differences, in addition to the many different cultures, is dividing rather than uniting us. This is exactly what Jesus did not want humans to do. Jesus did not only come to Earth to help those already in good hands, but to also help the tax collectors and thieves who were lost.
The same concept applies here: we cannot continue to divide ourselves based on religion, skin color and cultural differences. If our hearts had an unconscious side to it like our minds, it would probably be fair to say that it’s filled with a great deal of hate. And this is because we are allowing our minds to separate us, by polluting our hearts in the process.
Even if you feel very strongly about your religion, at the end of the day, you’re a human being! Don’t allow the information that you read in a book separate you from groups of other practicing faiths, just because they don’t share the information that is in your book. Look at the person in front of you: how you treat them matters!
We can all continue to hate each other and argue about which religion is more accurate, or we can use that negative energy and flip it around so that we can love each other and learn more about our differences. You see, society is going to continue to make progress in technological and medical advancements, improving our options for communication and treatments for physical and mental health disorders.
But what good does that do for us, if we cannot even get a basic concept right: to love each human being despite the differences that we carry! Some may argue that it’s not possible when there are 7.7 billion people currently living on planet Earth. But it is possible if we spread these kinds of messages to others, and find room in our hearts to change our ways, so that we can love each other!
Stop judging others. It’s a difficult process because you’ve been doing it your entire life, but start today by telling yourself, “I want to love everyone, even though we may carry many differences.”
Meditate on that.
