Comment: The most important thing to remember...

The most important thing to remember...

... in the coming months or years is to never allow your humanity, compassion, empathy and love for others be stolen or bought from you. There are far worse things than death of your physical body.

I am not religious man even one iota. I consider myself a spiritual, conscious being. But, there is one verse in scriptures that has stayed with me all of my life:

"For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it" (Luke 9:24).

Whenever I hear the word God or Jesus (although deities are fictions to me) I simply replace those words with Infinite Love.

Make of this what you wish. I sincerely believe that the spirit has always been and will never die. However, this spirit can be irrevocably damaged by evil things that one does in their lives. No matter what the future may hold, do not do evil against others to save yourself or make things personally better for yourself.

Those will be my marching orders when the SHTF.

BTW. Very nice poem.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”― Henry David Thoreau
