“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it --- always.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
I had a friend remind me of this quote. I think of Gandhi and he was just one good person who changed the world. He despaired many times of getting results but kept fighting to do what he thought was right. I think of all the brave people of the world who have done what they thought were right. None of what they did was easy. It was the biggest challenges of their lives.
They always had people lying about them and being an adversary. They were shamed and humiliated and every imperfection exposed in Gandhi's case to millions of people. They did the same thing to Nelson Mandela and there are always people who have to destroy anyone to make themselves feel better. I consider this part of the human condition. People who try to work upon themselves and do better always have others around who say they are doing the same thing but their method is to make others look worse so they look better.
Every religion and every person in the world has others who are trying to do what they are doing with making others look worse so they are special. Yet they do not do the work but want to be perceived as a person just like the great people of this world. It starts when we are children and we want our Mother to love us better. That is known to everyone when you watch children manipulate every one to try to get all of Mommy's attention. Insecure people do it when they have never received enough love so if the man or woman they love actually loves someone else as a family member, friend, or loves to do something they do not love. The insecure person will make it so they put them through Hell.
So if you look at the big picture then you can see this is done through all levels of life. The insecure people of the world who feel so inferior they have to make everyone else look bad that live in shaming and disgracing everyone different and the people who enjoy the different people and try to make life better.
You can experience this sort of person in every religion, every movement, every cult, and every entertainment medium in the world. Just listen to them and if they have to talk bad, slander everyone else, and never bring you to thought about the blessings in life. The joy you can bring to life or the difference you can make. If they never inspire you but just try to get money and make you do what they want you to do. Do not listen to them and try to be like the great people of this world who enjoy the difference in others and try to bring about positive change. Good change is never easy because jealous envious people always want to be the important ones but being important or well known is not the purpose of positive change. Positive change is to bring heaven down to earth where we have goodness live here. Not bringing Hell to earth where everyone suffers.
