To cure a sickness--one must first become aware that a sickness exists. How aware are we of the sickness that we label as "evil"? If a disease is to be cured--are we to kill all those infected with it?--Or should we focus on understanding/curing the disease? In what depth has humanity examined the fear, pain, and desperation that leads people toward destructive actions? Can you imagine a global media campaign dedicated toward telling/exploring the story of "evil" AND the potential story of the healing that humanity can CO-create? How well do we understand the life of a child who is born into an environment that teaches them to hate? How well do we understand the pain of a child who has witnessed their family members murdered? What is the result of us believing that we are NOT one human family? If we as a whole do not start asking these big questions NOW--then when will we? NOW IS THE TIME.

It is said that fear leads to anger--anger leads to hatred--and hatred leads to the sickness/cycle we label as "evil." It seems that humanity is addicted to this cycle of fear. As a culture--we tend to entertain ourselves with stories/movies/media content that is related to war/violence. Why? Is it exciting? Is the drama something we crave? It seems that people think of Peace as nothing more than calmness, serenity, daisies and flowers...but isn't that boring? That is the challenge my friends--to expand our ideas about Peace in such a way that PEACE becomes exciting! Sports (even martial arts), comedy, music, etc., can be ways for us to celebrate Peace/human potential in dramatic and exciting ways. Let the Peacemakers paint the picture. When someone is addicted to heroine--they can break that addiction by taking less and less doses of heroine. When someone is addicted to extreme violent drama--that addiction can be broken with drama that is less and less extreme--hence leading to the kind of drama that promotes Peace in an entertaining way. Make sense? Yet let us remember--a sickness/addiction cannot be healed unless one knows that it exists!

I personally am not immune to this addiction/sickness we call "evil". Although I may have not acted out this sickness in extremely destructive ways--I am still in the process of healing. Now that I am aware of this healing process within me--I am reaching out to YOU. I am reaching out to you so that TOGETHER we can stretch our arms toward the GRANDEST potential of the human family.

Ten Rules for Being Human by Cherie Carter-Scott

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”

4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

6. “There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”

7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this.

Evil caters to us. It takes on a life of it's own and surrounds us when our great potentials are at their best, and when our spirits are weakened. In order for changes inside our selves to occur, we have to want it bad enough. If we want it bad enough then we gain inner strength that is so powerful, the evil leaves and never returns.
