Living together in harmony

THE REASON

 

The cause of most unhappiness,
and frustration-- the reason we
don't win, I think,
may be the extensive
attempts to proselytize others, that
they will believe and live as we do.

 

Just as the main reason for many
murders, and sin is attempting to
overpower brothers,
and force them to
accept the "better way" -- the way that
they deem mandatory to reach the
higher echelon where
we all want to go.

 

It seems that the reason for most
friction is forgetting that we are
all free to choose
from what has been
given-- and that we are all loved
equally by our Father in heaven.

Delma,

What a perfect write. It's very special to me as my daughter and I had been at odds for month, today it ended. Perhaps we both realized your last paragraph.
