We are One

The Other Side of the Coin

on November 7, 2010

For every person who is suffering, there is someone who is living in Joy.  For every person who is bullying others, there is someone who is Loving all who they meet.  Often the bully’s are hurting as much or more than their victims.  High school is a right of passage that all Americans experience.  How you handle it is not only a reflection of who you are, but of how you were raised!

Puberty is a time when so many aspects of life are changing and it is when those who are gender incongruent smack head on with a wall of confusion.  Not to mention figuring out sexual orientation.  If you have ever looked at the questions on sites like yahoo answers the number of questioning teenagers is amazing.  They are discovering sexuality and gender identity from different perspectives and finding what works best for them and this goes for all teenagers.  The environment in which they are raised will have much to do with whether they feel safe to be themselves.

Are you providing an open, loving and accepting environment for your children to grow up?  Do you set an example for them by treating everyone you meet as an equal?  In order to create a world of equality, one must embody it first!  As we do this then those who follow will do the same, it is human nature. 

There can be no better role model than Jesus Christ.  When you fully understand his personal teachings you will have the skills to be a role model.  I recommend A Course in Miracles (ACIM), A Spiritual Sex Manual, and The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking for starters.  There are literally hundreds of books and teachings that are based on these teachings.  One of my favorites that applies to the discussion of bullying in our schools is posted below.  The before mentioned books teach how to do what this prayer suggests. May your journey be a peaceful and prosperous one. 

Christian Prayer for Peace

 
Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be known as the Children of God.

But I say to you that hear,

love your enemies,

do good to those who hate you,

bless those who curse you,

pray for those who abuse you.

To those who strike you on the cheek offer the other also,

and from those who take away your cloak, do not withhold your coat as well.

Give to everyone who begs from you,

and of those who take away your goods, do not ask them again.

And as you wish that others would to do you, do so to them.

 

If anyone needs this explained to them please contact me, I am more than happy to get into the details and meaning of this prayer.  To me it is self evident what it means, however from the state of affairs worldwide many do not understand this prayer, much less read such things.  May we all be Blessed in our Journey of Love!
