If all of us in this world would practice the golden rule—to love each other as we love ourselves—then we’d have no more war, no more chaos. If we could love one another for that spark of the Creator that we each have within ourselves and not because of the community we belong to, how much money we make, or how we pray, then we would live in a different world.
Don’t get me wrong: Human beings have faults. In fact, there are people with deep and dark faults that they must change. But if we can focus on what we ourselves need to transform and if we can support those around us with love and understanding in the hope that they will transform as well, then we can induce healing in a world sorely in need of it.
