Finding Peace Within: A Call to Responsibility in a Turbulent World.

In a world filled with terror, conflict, and polarization, it's crucial for us to take a step back and reflect on our own role in this ongoing struggle. One area of significant concern is the longstanding conflict in Israel and Palestine, which has gripped the hearts and minds of people worldwide. The historical significance and complexity of this conflict, dating back thousands of years, only emphasize the need for personal reflection and responsibility.


The question we must continually ask ourselves is, "What is my responsibility in the face of such global turmoil?" Our responsibility, as it turns out, begins within. We must look within ourselves, our lives, and the relationships we hold dear. It's essential to acknowledge the presence of terror and hatred, even if it's hidden deep within our subconscious.


Amidst the chaos in the world, we must strive to be the peacemakers within our own hearts. We need to examine the conflicts that exist within us, both on a conscious and subconscious level. Are our beliefs and actions in alignment with the world we wish to see? This inner conflict can lead to emotional turmoil, which, when left unchecked, manifests as external conflict and, at its worst, terror.


Many of us may not even realize that we're terrorizing ourselves. We create internal conflicts that we are unwilling to confront, thereby perpetuating the cycle of violence and hatred. The truth is, the external world is a reflection of what is within us. If we don't address our inner turmoil, we cannot expect the external world to change.


It's time to stop pointing fingers and blaming others. Our responsibility is to become aware of where we are directing our "guns." When we point a finger, three fingers point back at us, signaling that the source of change lies within ourselves.


Rather than merely advocating for peace in a utopian sense, we must first seek peace within ourselves. The source of true peace is the inner peace we cultivate within our own hearts. If we are harboring hatred or prejudice, it will be reflected in the world around us.


This calls for a moment of self-awareness and vulnerability. We need to confront our own prejudices and unfounded hatred. Only by being honest with ourselves can we hope to create a different reality for the world, one that our children can inherit with hope and optimism.


Let's change the vibration of our thoughts and emotions. Let's ask ourselves, "What can I be today that will change everything within me and in the world?" Then, ask the universe for guidance and opportunity, and make a conscious choice to embrace it. In this way, we can contribute to the transformation of our world, one heart at a time.


By taking responsibility for our own inner peace, we can be the change that the world so desperately needs. Let's embark on this journey of self-discovery and transformation, fostering a more peaceful and harmonious world for generations to come.


For many days, I have been asking for the words to communicate my feelings and awareness toward the crisis in Israel/Palestine. Often, poetry is my language. This time was no different. I am sharing this video with you. Please feel free to share, as guided within.


Make Believe

by Daniel Bobby Tuttle


Make Believe


We make believe, pretend its not ours

Nothing to do

With our memoirs.


The selfishness truth

The violence, the terror

The murdering of endless youth

You call it

Human Error?

Perpetuated neglect

If you choose this route

“What’s mine is mine”

Irresponsible doubt.


The tears I’ve shed,

Rolling down my face

Watching the hate unfolding

For the entire human race.


Wake up, stop pretending

This “end-times” bullshit

Throwing your hands up in the air

“What’s inevitable, is done. God’s will”

You claim, fit.


What you see in the world,

A reflection of what’s inside

Our unacknowledged hate,

The enduring ride.


Its a old rollercoaster with tracks

Rusty

Rickety, crickety screeching and haunting

Throwing you around,

Until you’re finally revolting.


What can you do then?

You can take your stand!

Wherever you place your anger

You can channel a plan

To love yourself, to love each other

To have compassion for the compassionless

To weap for another.


The blood that is shed,

Is not in vain,

It’s not about religion

Or some political game.


Make a choice, stop complaining

If we do not transform our ways

end the blaming

Nothing will ever change the play.


Monotheistic Ways

The golden rule of all

“Love for your Brother, what you love for yourself”

Same line, same meaning

Though if you hate you, this too will be fleeting.


Love of “one god” is also a

Lost cause

Your soul, my soul

This is were we pause.


Common ground, common god

At the source, we are all one.

We bleed the same,

We cry the same tears

We shit the same turds

We have the same fears.

No-one is exempt.

None.


Make believe

For belief is the key

Do you believe we can just BE?

Without our self-righteous

Identity?


MAKE Believe

Do you hear me?

A better reality can you forsee?

Where allowance is

The only justice design

Make Believe

There is ONE BLOODLINE.
