...and something to PONDER on over Easter Week...

Just sharing a favorite writing by Seth channeled by Jane Roberts. It is about violence, violence not only in physical action but also in mind and words.

"There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred. There is no justification for murder. Those who indulge in violence for whatever reasons are themselves changed, and the purity of their purpose adulterated."

"I have told you that if you do not like the state of your world, it is yourselves that you must change, individually and en masse. This is the only way that change will be affected."

"If your generation or any generation effects a change, this is the only way it will be done. What i am telling you has been said before through the centuries. It is up to you as to whether or not you will listen."

"It is wrong to curse a flower and wrong to curse a man. It is wrong to hold any man in honor, and it is wrong to ridicule any man. You must honor yourselves and see within yourselves the spirit of eternal vitality. If you do not do this, then you will destroy what you touch. And you must honor each other individual also, because in him is the spark of eternal vitality.

"When every young man refuses to go to war, you will have peace. As long as you fight for gain and greed, there will be no peace, As long as one person commits acts of violence for the sake of peace, you will have war. Unfortunately it is difficult to imagine that all young men in all countries will refuse to go to war all at the same time. And so you must work out the violence that violence has wrought, Within the next hundred years that time may come. Remember, you do not defend an idea with violence."

"There is no man who hates but that that hatred is reflected outward and made physical. And there is no man who loves but that love is reflected outward and made physical."
