Sometimes reading the news is very depressing, in fact I very rarely turn on the T.V. As most reports that we’re listening to are what I would call manufactured fear.
Unfortunately this fear divides us and causes bigotry toward others. Manifesting fear comes in many subtle guises. The very blatant are often around the time of the elections , when people say vote for me because they are coming to infiltrate our country.
Vote for me because they are going to take your jobs
Vote for me and I’ll keep you safe from that scary thing I said is coming to get you
America and what’s happening now they’re making it sound as if the world is suddenly more dangerous this is what we’re calling manufactured fear. It is a psychological tactic designed to create division between human beings. The idea of us versus them simply done by pointing out the many differences in other people, other cultures and then they tell us we need to be afraid. Christmas is a time when we remember that we’re all one.
Look around at the Christmas coloured lights connected on one interconnecting electric cord
Many lanterns One light.
Christmas reminds us we are One with all human beings
And one with the universe.
Can we not welcome all beings into our heart this Christmas ?
