‘Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.’

Hatred of others based on their sexual orientation or religion has always boggled my mind. And yet, it seems all too telling that as a society we have chosen to embrace that hatred over reaching for common peace, acceptance, or compassion. These negatives lead me to continually question humanity, and our oh-so vocal quest for “harmony”.

Who’s harmony? Yours? Mine? His? Hers? Its? Ours?

However, despite this unrest and persecution…I see many who refuse to lose faith, and many more who trudge on believing in a kinder humanity…and their actions make me believe too. Without hope…but, with faith.

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” – Albert Einstein.

Not the typical Nymphobrainiac post…but perhaps it is, for a true Nymphobrainiac understands sexuality mindfully and as a part of the entirety of the human continuum…without judgement. xxx c.

    Love this post! I was born and raised in the church but my views on religion changed dramaticly when I see certain types of people get treated as if they were not a child of God. I have so much love for people (no matter sexual orientation or religious belief). I have lived side by side with people who are worlds apart from the person I am but because of it I have learned something about myself and have made memories that will last a life time.

      You know, the longer I live, the more convinced I am that it is not the “perfect path” that creates compassion…but the one that twists and turns…one full of questioning, fear, and even anger…it seems, only from that type of adversity that we can emerge “better”…more accepting, less judgmental…and ready, to love as you say, the world as a whole. Thank you for your comment, c.
