And a big Hi
for All others;
Greetings is the oldest form of initiating a
conversation when two people meet, it is an
acknowledgment of the existence of the other. From a
Hama Ashobed”- meaning I am fine and hope you are too.
essence of greetings
is “ I CARE” and, I wish to initiate a cordial
relationship with you and this statement is
flavored by religions, traditions and cultures - all
mean goodness, pure goodness.
I hope one day we could free ourselves
from all the chains that enslave us to the words
rather than the essence of it. Please make an attempt
to free yourselves from the slavery of words and
language and be a free human.
your friends, I urge you to use different greetings,
try it, you will not give it up. It feels so
good to be free.
Have you ever felt the serenity,
peace and joy linger in you all day when you help
some one that morning?
Have you ever felt the pain and
suffering of others without regard to their faith,
race, culture, ethnicity or any other uniqueness?
When you get to that point ‘with malice
towards none’, the boundlessness in you and the sense
of alignment you feel with the almighty is incredible.
It is indeed liberating, it is true freedom, it is
worth having it. This is what Jesus may
have meant when he said “follow me” and Krishna
“surrender to me” and Allah “submit to my will” and
you will find the same essence in all spiritual
traditions. When you follow, surrender and submit, you
have acquired the qualities of God, you have become
like him (her/it) all loving, all caring which removes
the “you” and “me”
barriers. Everything belongs to you, and you belong to
the Universe, that’s the salvation Jesus had promised
us, Krishna had guaranteed us, Ahura Mazda will
supervise it and Allah will deliver it to us.
Pluralism is an attitude of accepting
and respecting every beautiful way people have come to
worship the divine, including but not limited to the
Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islam, Jain,
Jewish, Sikh, Zoroastrian and other systems of belief.
The moment you believe yours is the only way, the ego
takes over and kills the spirituality and the piety in
you. Good riddance of ego for ones peace and
tranquility is the summation of all religions.”
Arrogance and Ego is the mother of all evil.
is to encourage individuals to develop an open mind and an open heart
toward their follow beings. If we can learn to accept and respect the God
given uniqueness of each one of the 7 billion of us, then conflicts fade
and solutions emerge. We believe that knowledge leads to
understanding and understanding to acceptance and appreciation of a
different point of view.
