Take my heart and care

Music today is from the late great Marc Bolan and his second group, Tyrannosaurus Rex before they grew into T.Rex. Copyright isn’t owned by me so apologies if it doesn’t play where you are but that is down to YouTube, Universal Music and the other copyright owners.

I found a saying from a Native American which I wanted to share with you, however, I have been unable to upload it from my pictures. The quote is from Chief Seattle and it reads:

“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

I take these wise words to mean that everyone of us is linked together (I have believed this from a very early age) and that whatever we do will come back to us (Karma). I have tried to live a good life, sometimes I have failed but I am human and we are born to make mistakes. If we learn the lessons well then these mistakes will not be repeated (if only I had learned mine from my first marriage, lol).

Anyone who is anyone knows that we are here for just a short time. Life is precious and shouldn’t be treated as anything different. Everyone living is born to die but we should not try to say when that time will come for anyone else. That’s what I believe and I feel that we do need to have guidelines (laws) to follow for the good of everyone. However, when those laws are unjust they should be questioned and changed. Not by one person but by society as a whole.

Terrorism, whether by a nation or a group of individuals, goes against the decency we should all feel for one another. Religion is a personal choice (as is atheism) so don’t try to force one religion or preach that all other religions are wrong. Any religion on this planet which proposes hatred, division and stands against any other religion has to be false. We should be allowed to practice whatever religion we choose, or even have no religion.

If we try to live our lives promoting good, honest, decent principles and teach our children not to hate (after all hatred is taught by those who hate and propogates itself). We should learn to tolerate others, everyone has something positive inside them, we need to bring that out and make our society bigger and better for everyone and not just the elite few who make money from the rest of us.

Enjoy your day and I hope the rest of it is fruitful, filled with love and you can see how blessed you are. You are beautiful and loved, worth spending time with and I am blessed because you are reading this.
