Over time, I have come to believe that there is a killer and a saint in all of us. But...I choose to focus on the future and the *potential* in people.
Choose the path leading to the betterment of humanity, harmonization and peace. It's well worth the effort.
In a recent interview I was asked, what do I represent. And my reply was same as always - I represent a species with all its diversities, not a nation, religion or ideology.
People are what matters to me the most, and if they need their religion to cope with their struggles of life, then I'll defend their right to faith with all the might in my veins, no matter how many intellectual scholars speak ill of me.
War can condition a person to be resilient, tolerant, dependable, strong, and capable of so much more than one who had experienced nothing of it; it can bring out the very best in us, but also the very worst. Where is it, I ask, the proper conduit through which a soldier should be raised from whence they would become an upstanding citizen of the world, instead of a single country?
If you use your life to improve the lives of even five people, that will be the highest fulfillment of your life, no matter how long you live.
Everyone is mad for something, I am mad for everyone.
Service is the only path to greatness.
Take the steps beyond personal gain and personal pain, to bring victory upon humanity. Be the cause of humanity’s joy – be the cause of humanity’s cheer – be the cause of humanity’s harmony – and above all be the cause of humanity’s unification – even if it means walking on a road full of thorns every single day of your life.
Your blood is full with vigor my brave soldier of destiny, so bring all that vigor out in the service of your family called humanity.
Make your existence a cynosure of service.
Heal your kind my friend with your wisdom and warmth transcendent, If not you then who else will unify humanity and rise as sapiens triumphant.
Be the ocean of conscience in which others can bathe. Be the sacred river of service, that takes away selfishness from the society. Be the mountain of bravery that absorbs weakness from the heart of people. And you must do all this as a humble servant as well as a pride-less leader of the people.
All humans are images of your own self - their pain is your pain - their misery is your misery - their sorrows are your sorrows - so rise and be the hope, help and joy in their lives!
Destroy such shining altars that spread bigotry - demolish such glorious churches and temples that proclaim divine supremacy - burn such glistening crucifixes, scriptures and idols that are used to preach weakness and segregation - obliterate every single trace of orthodoxy from the face of this planet, not with violence, but with awareness - and work - work to uplift the downtrodden - work to elevate the impoverished - work to raise those abandoned by fortune and opportunity - only then you shall have the rightful place under the sun as a holy human being.
