There's a gentle way

... for the more one opens and deepens one's apprehension and alignment with universal laws of cause and manifestation the greater empowerment to evoke right outcome. As the reasons for disharmony or loss are further evolvement and purification, so are the means of gain ... for to understand suffering is to conceive advancement. The ultimate purpose: Unification. Present ways and systems cannot last. Inevitably all things will naturally become as one with those who relinquish resentment while prioritizing and cultivating compassion, highest use and all inclusiveness.

By what authority do I speak? ... the Greatest:  "The Heart "

... Yes, we all have dragons we hope to vanquish with word or sword ... Alas, it would seem to take so much more: Realizing our greatest demons are self-afflicted. Perhaps we could start from within by allowing our highest intuitive aspirations unaffected by acculturation to dominate: Through heart centered purification of motive, perspective and feelings. The real or imagined malignant spirits thereby would naturally leave, or simply dissipate, no longer having fodder to feed upon ... with no need of word, or sword, the best defense, being . . . no offense, thereby having realized the foremost reason for living: Self-contained inner peace and harmony.

We are all so much alike in so many ways . . . Aren't we ? ... If in deed I've been a fool, these words, still . . . " Ring True " . . . by the fool who  " rang true  "

"Goodness & happiness for its own sake without reason ... soon realizes its own reasons."

Note: Although I have yet to gain the strengh to live my aspirations, I take comfort in that my intent is of the highest ... Goodness for its own sake without further expectation of reward, through purification of motive - bk
