Ego-Destroys-Peace

Howdy folks! 

Humanity's greatest weakness is the human ego. At the root of our problems is the human ego. The greatest hindrance with solving our problems is the human ego. We're divided because of human ego. We attack and violate others, we infringe on others, we demean, harass and bully others, we steal from others, we impose on others, we lie to and cheat others, we blame others, we hate others, etc., etc., because we elect to please and appeal to our ego, because denying our ego power requires strength, courage, and effort and humans by default seek the easiest route that calls for the least amount of effort.

We can't grasp the true essence and power of Love to enable us to apply the Elements of Love with and towards each other, because the human ego gets in the way. The human ego is humanity's greatest flaw and yet, we give it power that eventually the human ego will lead humanity to its own demise.

Peace is in our hands, but peace can't ever be,
Until the human ego surrenders to humility.
As long as the ego controls our heart and mind,
Peace will be out of reach; peace we'll never find.

Ego serves the self, justifies the human need
To satisfy selfish ways of lust, power, and greed.
Ego provides excuses for humans to lie and cheat,
Making accountability unnecessary, and so, obsolete.

Ego allows lesser traits to take center stage,
Eroding the human character, as good traits disengage.
Evidence of the human ego is around us everywhere
With the lack of empathy and the dishonesty to spare.

To bring us all together, technology should be the tool
To unite all humans worldwide, but lost is the Golden Rule.
It appears human intelligence isn't all it's cracked up to be,
Because human arrogance rules, giving ignorance more relevancy.

With the human ego in control, promoting hate behind the gun,
Causing killing and destruction, the war on hate cannot be won.
As long as there is hatred in human hearts still living,
Peace will elude us, until we choose to Love and be forgiving.

The human ego is not at all our comrade, buddy, or our friend,
Breeding arrogance within us to keep division without an end.
Division makes us weak and the more we divide and separate,
We turn against each other, betray Love for the sake of hate.

Humility breeds good character, being considerate with compassion;
Ego breeds just the opposite, self serving as the stylish fashion.
If we were to ever become one and a humble, human race,
Love could then flourish for peace to, upon us all, grace.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗
