New direction needed

The Muslims, the Christians and the Jews are spoiling for another war. Everybody seems to want to go to war.

The Muslims, the Christians and the Jews are spoiling for another war. Everybody seems to want to go to war.

War, what an insane concept in this world of today. The great talents of humanity are used to destroy each other, as if it were a video game.

Stop all war. Reason tells me that our creator does not want his children to continually kill each other and fail to achieve their collective destiny. Our reason for being has yet to become apparent, and look around, we are creating a mess in every aspect of our lives and the life our home, our planet Earth.

It is all our fault. The birds didn’t do it, none of the fish are responsible. Humanity, you, me, our relatives and our ancestors, created all the problems we have today.

Time has proven that if we can imagine something, we can create it. Everything is first an idea, then manifested into reality. Every car, every cell phone, every tool, every thing in Walmart was first an idea, then manifested into reality.

We need a new idea, and let us start with war. Let us declare war on this insane world we live in and let us win this war without firing a shot. By focusing the talents of humanity in a new direction. That direction is our destiny. Let reason be our guide.

Everything is first an idea.
