And Another Diatribe

I found this post on Genocide for Jesus by Emproph.

I read this sort of thing and start reciting my mantra:

“Picture a circle outlined by dots.
No one of those dots is any better or worse than any other dot.
Each is necessary in order to complete the circle.
Each Soul is exactly where it needs to be
along the path leading back to the All that Is.”

But, oh, it’s hard to believe, sometimes. This is one of those times.

Telling myself, “Maybe it’s karma. Maybe it’s balancing the universe to suffer torture and death because you happen to be perceived as outside the norm,” doesn’t help me get past the gut wrenching disgust I feel toward my species. It just doesn’t help.

Addendum:
I wrote this post a couple of years ago – then had the revelation I alluded to in the previous post a few weeks ago.  This is one of those times I mentioned in the post above when it is very, very hard to maintain the perspective of holding respect for those who arrived on the planet recently.

And yet, I know I’ve done exactly the same thing.  Thankfully, I don’t remember those times.  But – all the same – I need to remember that and not feel smug and self-satisfied that _I_ don’t do such things.  I have.  I know I have.

So. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in to the realization that I have done the things I find so easy to abhor and condemn.  And breathe out – letting go of condemnation and embracing respect and acceptance of, “Each dot is necessary.  Each soul is where it needs to be.”

Oh, God, it’s hard.
