"Past the seeker as he prayed came the crippled and the beggar and the beaten. And seeing them... he cried, 'Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?'... God said,'I did do something. I made you." - Sufi Teaching

Which one of you seeing a child suffering a grave wound would walk away? If being human you cannot help but reach out to heal, do you think that love which is Love will be withheld? Divine sorrow and love burn together in the human heart. Sorrow brings forth compassion that heals both the giver and the receiver. Burn with that love which will go out and bring peace to the world in this time of sorrow. May our hearts inform our minds, that sanity will prevail. Reach out to every suffering soul. A parent loves all children, and feels anguish in the suffering of any child. When the full harvest of compassion arises from your broken hearts, the intractable problems will dissolve. Blessing, peace and above all Love.
