In the Hands of Man

“He who creates a poison, also has the cure.
He who creates a virus, also has the antidote.
He who creates chaos, also has the ability to create peace.
He who sparks hate, also has the ability to transform it to love.
He who creates misery, also has the ability to destroy it with kindness.
He who creates sadness, also has the ability to to covert it to happiness.
He who creates darkness, can also be awakened to produce illumination.
He who spreads fear, can also be shaken to spread comfort.
Any problems created by the left hand of man,
Can also be solved with the right,
For he who manifests anything,
Also has the ability to
Destroy it.” 

― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Once the horror and grieving is over, let’s get to work with our right hands to bring balance and peace.

  1. I was heartened by speeches made in the aftermath. Some of our reps in Congress really do love this country. Maybe now they will work together to keep it strong and UNITED.

    And maybe Trump and his ENTIRE cabal will be rounded up and escorted off the political stage. Just imagine, no more Donald. No more Ivana. No more Jared. No more Eric. No more Don Jr.

  2. Indeed one needs to get to work to get back balance and peace.

    But as the story goes, even if we were to pull out the nails from the wood, the scars would continue to remain. How do we take out the scars? I believe the only way to do that is to shift our perspective so that we no longer ‘see’ ( or affected by) the scars.

    What are the practices that are needed for the above?



I'd love to hear from you ...
