HUMANITY IS INDIVISIBLE

We are all interconnected, links in the eternal chain of Nature and Spirit, pieces of whatever shape, size and colour in the mosaic of Indivisible Humanity; or as John Donne puts it, “a part of the main, and anyone’s death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind.” It stands, therefore, that anyone’s triumph will enhance everyone. And also according to J.D.Cole “The world’s problems are ours, even if we turn our backs on them, they are still ours.”

If God’s gifts which are bestowed on us are hoarded and not shared, we bury our talents. Also wanton waste without regard for the starving, the homeless and the needy, is a sin.

Governments that choose to spend considerable sums to make weapons of destruction and neglect the welfare of humanity are pursuing a divisive policy which is against Nature and the Divine Command – The Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man.

If ,man, who is so gifted and talented, who is able to conquer time and space and reach the stars, chooses through greed and lust to misdirect his endowments, he will sever the links of his connectedness and precipitate chaos and destruction.

In what direction are we heading? Do we, like Nero, fiddle while Rome burns? Or like the proverbial ostrich bury our heads in the sand in the face of danger? Someone said: “The hottest places in hell are reserved for those, who, in times of moral crisis, maintain their neutrality. Unity and not divisiveness is the prerequisite for the survival of society.
