Whilst living things were created on our earth
By the Creator
Using His creative energy
In his mold
As He desired
And for continuation
In the production of living beings and civilization
He made males and females
Thence started the continuous evolution
As time passes
But He exerted total control over births and deaths
Which may be due to the Karmic deeds
With mind and body
To consciously think and act according to the individual’s capacities
But as truth stands out
We are responsible for our thoughts and actions
Bad thoughts and actions lead to Karmic credit depletion
But good thoughts and deeds lead to increase in Karmic credit accretion
Of the person concerned
God made everybody in His mold
And that too with His energy
Every creation of His is dear to Him
In His domain
There is no difference
Based on caste, creed, color, region
Status and ideologies.
We humans have segregated
Divided His creations based
On narrow, selfish and pettiness
By pitting one person
Against another person
Without even slightest notion
That all the creations
Come and go to the Source of Origin
Where ALL LIVES MATTER
With no conflicts in civilization identities.
There are the selfish ones
Who get more pleasure by putting one against other
For spreading hatred and then rebellion
Resulting in violence
Amongst the vulnerable members of the society
By creating artificial divisions in the communities
Thus, pursue their violent agenda
Of provoking anger and unrest
Based purely on ignorance
That ‘SOME LIVES MATTER’
Pitting against the slogans ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’
The gullible and vulnerable get engulfed
And get stuck miserably
In the quagmire
An instigation for burning and looting of public properties
Without much insight that the properties burnt and looted
Are made out of their own taxes only!
We humans should follow those who taught
How best to adjust with all
Without any narrow judgment or distinction
Though we have the freedom for pre-assumptions
Based purely on compassion
Knowledge and wisdom-based considerations
That all that exists on this beautiful earth and beyond
Is the creation of our Benevolent Creator
With the definite purpose for all who is created on this earth
Besides in His realm so vast
Nobody is big or small indeed
Because ALL LIVES MATTER in His domain and ALL LIVES COUNT.
ALL LIVES COUNT IN THE DOMAIN OF OUR GOD
We all are aware that when our Creator created living beings in His mold and with His energy. Therefore, He created everybody unique – in traits and other characteristics. Everybody created by Him has a separate purpose. But the modern man has become very material-minded, for him money is very important; being an end in itself and not a means to an end. By doing so, the man has virtually ignored ethical, moral and above all spiritual aspects of his life. What he does or does not do, he wants something in return. In such a social environment, even a child cannot remain unaffected by this negative change. He picks up what his older members of the society do or do not do. Selfishness, self-centeredness, conceitedness and above all man has become intolerant. This intolerance is due to the fact that he has not got the patience to listen to other viewpoints, no tolerance to face facts and is always swayed by innuendoes which are fed to him on day to day basis. He forgets his roots and above all the source from where he is originated – leading to violence, lack of empathy and above all his basic purpose for which he has come to this earth gets woefully forgotten.
DIFFERENCES IN THOUGHTS COMES WHEN WE MOVE AWAY FROM OUR TRUE NATURE
In his quest to get what the man wants to get, he forgets how the Mother Nature bestows Her most precious gifts in the form of air, water and sunlight without which we cannot survive. If our Lord does not discriminate in anything, then why we humans have a biased mindset based on parochial and close-minded considerations. If anything happens in any part of the world, we get swayed and want to showcase our egocentric tendencies by burning public properties, harming others based on differences in caste, creed, the color of our skin, region etc. All this happens when we are unaware of our true nature, we all are not apart from our God.
In the BIBLE it has been said:
“Since all lives are created by our Creator
So, God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God, he created them;
male and female he created them”.
DIFFERENCE IN PERCEPTION
In essence, the religion-based, region-based and skin colour-based differences have made a huge negative impact on our psyche. All right-thinking people feel dismayed by the chaotic and confusing conditions created at the slightest provocation of a person or a group of people. We are aware of the ugly incidents of mob leeching or killing or maiming by the violent crowd due to difference in religious beliefs.
DIFFERENCES IN PERCEPTION BASED ON PAROCHIAL THOUGHTS LEAD TO VIOLENCE AND BAD BLOOD BETWEEN COMMUNITIES
We observe how violence erupts with global ramification due to a specific incident owing to the fault of a single or two persons; who anyhow was dealt with according to the laws of the land. There are clashes between ‘SOME LIVES MATTER’ versus ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’. This has affected societies more adversely than even Coronavirus Pandemic which too has engulfed the entire world. The Covid-19 pandemic infection and lockdowns will come and go as societies grow but the violence between societies based on narrow thinking remains. Alas, this is a matter of concern.
It is a sad commentary that we expected more tolerance, accommodation and acceptability of diverse opinions based on caste, creed, colour, language, status and ideologies due to spread of knowledge due to evolution of mankind. This all-encompassing knowledge dissemination should have changed the old mindset and changed outlook based on narrow considerations which were hitherto prevailing. But unfortunately, there were incidents of public property burning, looting due to spread of anger and hatred pitting one community against other. The division in the communities, based on perverted mindset, has opened a Pandora box of reeking worms proving that our perceived advancement and evolution are merely paper-oriented.
DIVISIONS IN THE SOCIETIES IMPACT OUR EXISTENCE
In essence, the global adverse effect created due to parochial thoughtlessness has divided our societies. The situation becomes all the more daunting while almost all the communities globally are facing economic stringency owing to job losses and business losses due to Covid-19 pandemic lockdown conditions. Some people take pleasure in spreading violence and dissension even in these difficult times. It is a well-known fact that in this sort of scenario, the vulnerable and gullible are the poor and ignorant ones who get swayed and fall into the swamp of violence. Contrarily, the influential people mobilize people to deliver catchy slogans and speeches with an intention to create dissensions and consequent mayhem amongst communities by spreading hatred and hostility. By so doing, the authorities are constrained to close down economic activities thus impacting the economic health of the country concerned becoming a cause for an increase in unemployment.
IN THE DOMAIN OF GOD EVERY LIFE COUNTS
While we are aware that everybody is dear to our Lord, then, why we humans act otherwise and pit one against others owing to narrow considerations. Let all, without any ulterior motive, be empowered equally and grow equally by getting an equal share from the economic development of the country concerned. If this happens then there would be a dawn of good relationship between the communities based on the personal involvement of all, cooperation and understanding where ALL LIVES MATTER.
WHEN ALL CONTRIBUTE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COUNTRY THEN THERE WOULD BE A DAWN OF HARMONY
Importantly, the moot point is how best we all, without any bias, be equal partners in any situation and condition. If the situation in the country concerned is good, we can enjoy our life together, if otherwise, we can work hard together and make a difference. This could only be possible when all contribute with the avowed aim of bringing in its wake the dawn of harmony between all the communities without any discrimination. This becomes reality only when we realize the truth ALL LIVES MATTER.
COVID-19 PANDEMIC ADVERSELY AFFECTS ALL SOCIETIES WITHOUT ANY BIAS!
The lockdowns due to Covid-19 pandemic, has clearly shown that the virus affects all. No society is immune to its ill effects then why to create artificial barriers? We can fight this virulent virus together since ALL LIVES MATTER.
