Dear munchkins, my sweetypies my Cho Cho Chweet friends when I was young I watched a movie with Bud Spencer acting in it I forgot the name of the movie. In that movie Bud and his friend go as missionaries to another place and one man who knew a bit of the Bible came to Bud and said it says “in the Bible if someone slaps you on one cheek turn the other cheek as well” and slaps Bud hard on the cheek, Bud immediately gets the guy by the color and beats him up . Bud’s friend immediately comes up to Bud and shouts at Bud to stop hitting the guy and reminds him of the Bible as Bud lets this guy go and all he said was “HE SLAPED ME ON THE WRONG CHEEK”
Dear friends I come from India a land of democracy , peace, meditation, yoga and above all sathyagraha or non- violence started by our great freedom fighter Mahatma Ghandhi. How can we love people who have wronged us, forgive people who have done us harm. This issue goes back 2000 years back when Jesus on the cross said “Father forgive them for they know not what they do” These people literally put nails through Jesus palms and feet and hung him on the cross.
If He who did wrong to no one forgave them how much more should we forgive.
I was wronged today by some sales people I was upset but I knew I had to forgive them and now this situation is on the bygones list on my mind.
An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth will make the world blind and toothless No we as people should not take revenge and justice is there any meaning in that word today if a lot of people have wronged us do we seek justice no seek to love them through prayer difficult but doable why love because Love is stronger than hate. I am no saint and there are times the fuse of my heart of love has had lighting problems but I do some breathing exercises, pray and leave my burdens at the feet of the God of light.
Let me tell you after that I am back to normal because He Christ lives in me.Tap into that inner energy and the God of light and peace will give you a Hakuna Matata journey through life no worries, worry does not accomplish any thing it is difficult to be worry free and care free but it is possible.
Let me end with a song because He lives I can face tomorrow because He lives all fear is gone because I know He holds my future and Life is worth a living because my Savior lives
