Reading regarding Islam and Muslims
Interpretation: ARTHA Your greatest strength lies in your clear vision. You view the world without prejudice, with an uncluttered healthy mind. You deal with people humanely, unselfishly and lovingly. You understand yourself and can empathise with everyone, even those who feel antipathetic or hostile to you. The bond between you and your fellow men goes beyond cultural differences. It is not simply a sympathetic similarity of hopes and fears. You sense the divine image in all men and you perceive the tragedy of the human condition. The close attachment you feel to your fellow man is not forced. You cannot control it. You cannot turn it off or on. You may even not be completely aware of it, as such. According to the values of your culture you are not an extraordinary person. But anything you undertake will be successful. The time is right for far reaching changes and momentous activity on your part.
Taken from I CHING by Sam Reifler #61 Kung-fih
Now I think this describes me accurately. I would prefer mankind, rather than man. I have copied verbatim. You can check it if you want. I can take some comfort in that the ancient book the I CHING knows me when many on Twitter do not recognise me owing to their spiritual impoverishment.
The trouble is that certain people think that it is kool to be a Progressive, Modern Human Being; and that it is progressive to be Politically Correct. And maybe it is kool amongst that crowd. I notice that the Greens go overboard with Political Correctness. It is all very fine until it is wrong. Beware of the pendulum swinging too far in the opposite direction. What used to be outlawed should not become common place. Let the pendulum settle at the centre.
