As I scroll through the news feeds on Facebook I notice a trend and its that of
“Tarring with the same brush” mentality and its not just towards a particular religion but in general we stereotype people because of their behaviour and a misrepresentation of them by a minority. As the dalai lama once said
Just like anyone we have our own story and our own minority that misrepresents us but that doesnt mean we tar the innocent with the same brush.
It saddens me when I see this happening as I was raised a Muslim and I know in my heart from my experiences they are as humane compassionate and loving as any other religion.
My Muslim name I was given at birth was
Eddi nur with nur meaning
Meaning of Nur
Now to most of my friends they see me as an Aussie born down under but for me its much more that Muslim culture is a part of me I know in my heart that Islam is not represented by terrorists.
As much as I want to vent my frustrations I will say though YOU CANNOT HAVE DOUBLE STANDARDS TO ACCEPTANCE OR LOVING KINDESS
In essence you are double standarding yourself as you project that to the rest of the world
10% doesn’t represent 100%
Be true to yourselves and be true to the world as remember we all have our story and words can be powerfully damaging or powerfully energizing.
Peace love light
