Irrelevance


It is like to protect your feet. Instead of covering them with slippers, you carpet the whole of the earth.
But, what if I don’t want to use slippers? I love high heels. Carpet doesn’t do what high heels do!

You are not allowed to eat pork, then you burn all pigs the whole of the earth.
But, I eat pork. Why?

You dislike the sound of music. You crush every instrument and mute every singer and burn every player – in the world.
Without music, I would die.

So, if you do like to wear slippers, everybody else should too. If you don’t eat pork, everybody else should not too. You don’t listen to music, everybody can’t.

If it is peace you want, seek to change yourself, not other people (Anthony de Mello)
But, your definition of peace could be different to mine.
