The Real Wars are Not Being Fought
There are battles worth fighting, and they are of the interior variety. These are the battles humans are avoiding when we decide to take our battles outside ourselves. These are the battles we project into weaponry, competition, wars.
If we fought the real battles with vigor and intent, then we would have peace in the world. Softening our spiritual lives, watering them down, avoiding them altogether... only adds to the bloody wars of guns and invasion, because we become weak of heart and spirit. We must exercise the soul and then we will have the strength to stop hurting one another.
