As long as there are humans on earth there will always be war

I am aware that I hold a different viewpoint on a lot of things than most of my family and friends. A million thoughts go through my head each day. Ok, I’m exaggerating, not a million but quite a few. Mostly, I keep them to myself because I don’t want to ruffle any feathers. I’ve decided “what the hay?” Get some of these thoughts out and if people do not want to be my friend anymore because individual thought is not valued then maybe they are not meant to be my friend.

Here are my thoughts for today:

Humans always find a reason to start/fight wars. Nations and countries are formed and destroyed. New nations and countries are created to replace the old and the process repeats itself over and over again. Humans create/rewrite history to suit their needs. They create religions and try to make sense of what they don’t understand. There is no heaven and no hell. No chosen people. We humans need to learn to live in harmony with each other and nature.

Here’s to A New Year

I have decided to start my year in February because February is my birthday month. So Happy New Year everyone. I can’t believe we are already in 2015. It seems like 2014 flew by. I woke up, winked and a year had gone by.

I am not even going to attempt to make resolutions or affirmations. I’m just going to live my truth and get on with it. I have started keeping a journal again. I like holding the pen between between my fingers. I like the feel and smell of the paper.

I don’t know how long that will last or whether I’ll eventually just destroy it like all my other journals, but for now it’s working. I can say in there all the things I dare not say in public or on social media. I can empty my thoughts for the day unto the page and start each day anew. I can scribble down notes from the books that I read and come back to them later.

Here’s to another year of Life on this Earth. I embrace Life. I embrace Change, I embrace Love, and I embrace the Universe.
