When there is a vacuum of love within our soul, hate, bitterness, envy, lust, racism, or arrogance rush to fill the empty space. This is most dangerous because there is nothing more explosive.
“When you allow bitterness, jealousy, envy, racism, lust, greed, and arrogance to fill our souls, we create an environment WITHIN us to become agents of violence. We live in a time when the most terrifying bomb is not a nuclear one, but a human one. This is where humanity has come. This is how far we have ‘evolved.’ We strap bombs around our chests, lure innocents into our presence, and then consider ourselves heroes as we destroy everything around us. If this were not bad enough, for some it has become a proof of spirituality. There are people all around us waiting to E-X-P-L-O-D-E! How many of us are walking around with fuses already lit?”
