Why is man his own worst enemy?


I woke up to blue skies and sunshine, only to have dark clouds cover the blue skies. Eminent rain is in the process of giving the land a new freshness, a rebirth so to speak. I open Facebook to do my work, before I begin I read the various advertisements and articles on my news feed and I am overcome with negative emotion. Does this happen to you? Is there any hope for the human race or is our forced mental environment too overwhelming? Why is there so much ill will? Why is war our only method for peace? Why can not religious fervor be gathered together in peace and harmony? Why is there Death to the infidels or you can not worship here because you are not one of us? I was always mesmerized by; I have the one and only God; all others are false Gods!

Can faith be religious upon itself without being administered by a religion? Can you believe in a better place or being without religion? What do you think? I am tired of the religious fervor produced by millionaire preachers and religious organizations. In the USA, there is a preacher on every block. Why is that? Is it for the administration of God’s word or the evasion of taxes? You tell me the truth, what is the true God? My indoctrination of ┬áthe belief of a higher power called God was embedded in me as a youth and torn apart as an adult. I look at the pages of Facebook and shake my head at the hippocracy spewed on the pages of Facebook, and newspapers to bend a persons thoughts to a certain agenda. Like the picture above I believe faith is in your actions in life not in what a religion tells you how it should be. Tell me, is the Bible the greatest book written by man? Can you live by the ten commandments if Moses did not pass it on? Are you a good person because of the religion you worship or the way you believe you should live? Is not atheism a form of faith? Scientist believe in the Big Bang theory and cling to it with every bit of sensibility they can muster. Like the picture above, I believe we must unite, hold each other close and be of one thought. Not for the better good but what is good for all peoples. Black, white, brown unite as one. How do you feel about the world as it is? Pura Vida!


Tell Me Lord

Tell me lord, why is the world so cruel?
Yet your sky is so blue
Tell me why there is hate
That makes the soul so black

Why did we go to the moon?
But we let our people starve and live in the streets
Tell me Lord why I should talk to you
Because I do not know what to do

Tell me Lord , why can’t we live in peace?
We war in the name of God
Does not that seem odd?
Tell me Lord, who is my brother?

Tell me Lord, If the heart is the gateway to the soul
Why is our souls so dark?
Tell me Lord, why did Dad loose his house?
Payments were heavy for his sick spouse

Tell me Lord why I should pray for help?
When everyone looks out for themselves
Tell me Lord that it is true
That you will help us through

Is Armageddon our salvation or our fate ?
Is it too late?
