Pat’s Ponderings — Thou Shalt Not Kill

Zenera - Sky Pilot (by-sa)

 

Is killing ever justified? Thou shalt not kill. Does this apply to rats in the house, mosquitoes biting me, a pantry full of weevils, someone attacking with the intent to kill?

In “People of the Lie” (by Scott Peck) we see those who seek to kill the spirit of another. Humiliation, domination, a murderous need to control are the weapons of destruction.

Why does this force of evil even exist? Is it man’s dual nature; are we all capable of this destruction? My quandary is in believing that there is only one Creator. How does a Creator whose matrix is pure love create creatures capable of such destruction? Is that potential for evil a flaw in design, a pawn to make the game more interesting? This seems in contract to the idea of perfect love.

Evil exists, even in only in the world of illusion. My head swims with “why” questions. I spin in confusion. But then I take a deep breath, return to my center and focus on the one thing which I know with absolute certainty:

The Creator is pure love energy. I am from the Creator, my core being is the same pure love energy. All else is temporary, illusion. I need only focus on my desire to love my Creator with total devotion, trusting that this is the path that I follow. Amen to this.

    Reblogged this on Nina's Garden and commented:
    nature is red in tooth and claw

    to live, you have to eat
    so in some circumstances
    killing is necessary across the living world

    but it’s the killing for other reasons than merely eating

    especially when it comes to one’s own species.

    that we need to question

    is it really worth dying
    over differences of opinion
    of how life began?
