When I hear “cowardly terror attack” in the news

It’s not the first time I hear something like this, exploiting an incident for incitement and personal commentary. For a news speaker such language should be forbidden, but it shows how much they have become propaganda speakers for the establishment.
People allow themselves such transgression because THEY are cowards and are trying to distract from that, by rallying against their nemesis. Standards of proper conduct and professionality are thrown out the window when people think they can get away with it, because it’s popular and because peer pressure tries to stifle critique of that mainstream.
This shows how troubled our society is and how the demons we fight originate in us.

Cowardice is rooted in existential fears and its derivatives. Calling someone a coward who is deliberately giving up their life … well, as I said, that’s what cowards do who refuse to understand the real causes that drive people to such ultimate self-sacrifice, because then they would have to see their own responsibility and involvement, and that is inconvenient, and cowards fear personal inconvenience.
Speaking of a “cowardly terror attack” is barking from the cheap seats, self-importance from the safety of peer support. It is only a small step away from a news speaker saying “Those evil barbarian enemies of all that is good need to be eradicated”, and things have moved in that direction and still do. The example in the title is not the most extreme case of an ignorant inciteful mindset I have witnessed.

People with some spine don’t kick downwards, but punch or at least look upwards, towards the source of collective suffering, the influential war-mongering psychopaths. They are given power through the convenience of fear, through cowardice, through refusing to confront your inner demons and thus manifesting them in the world through your denial-fueled actions.

You either become a common rabble puppet of the age-old game of divide-and-conquer or you find some courage and hone your character. And if these words upset you or create antagonistic thoughts, then that’s where you need to start that work. And that involves the most scary thing: opening your heart. Because the heart is not just the source of true kindness, but also of courage. Mind without heart is nothing but fear. It makes you ascend in the ranks of those who further the suffering in the world.

Unconditional love is…

Unconditional love is like the love a writer has for their characters. One character might be a villain, or a rude asshole, but they love them anyway, since they enjoy their creation. They are essential pieces in great storytelling.
This is why people usually only experience this unconditional love when they manage to connect to the divine. Because they’re totally not used to it due to lack of exposure, since so few people practice it. But the divine is all about enjoying its creation in its totality. It does nothing but love unconditionally, and that is enough to bring things into existence. It doesn’t play favorites; That’s why anything can happen.

Man says: “Why is this allowed to happen?”
God says: “Why not?”
Man says: “People are suffering.”
God says: “How could it be any other way?”
Man says: “No suffering. Everybody happy.”
God says: “You will get there. Why so impatient?”
Man says: “I don’t want to suffer anymore.”
God says: “Then I cannot allow you to happen.”

Suffering ends when you realize you are one with God. But that can only happen if you accept your separation from God.
Which means loving life unconditionally.
You accept the separation and it allows you to do that, and doing that confirms the unity.
