I just realised that I would LOVE the opportunity NOT to post any political stuff or even think about politics. Ever. Or at least for a reasonable period of time.
Bahrain, Palestine, Israel, Iraq, Syria etc are bloody tiring.
When will the day come when we can forget about strife and concentrate on living, actually living our lives rather than surviving from one conflict or war to another? At 52, I’ve lived through five major wars in the region and countless other conflicts. It’s time that we gave peace a chance don’t you think?
With peace we can prosper. We can concentrate on being creative and productive rather than storing and shoring up hatred for the other. Hate’s energy is debilitating and corrosive. It saps all creativity and productiveness from the soul and leaves one empty. And we’ve been at this state for over a century. Isn’t it time to force our politicians to create peace rather than continue to feed war? Don’t we have the courage to get that realised?
I’m fed up. Really fed up of these situations. I know it’s going to be extremely difficult for me, but I’ll try, at least for a little while, to ignore strife and concentrate on living.
I shall seek peace within myself. Starting now.
