Capisce?

I was reminded of my post on this verse from Qur’an recently:

VERILY, Abraham was a man who combined within himself all virtues, devoutly obeying God’s will, turning away from all that is false, and not being of those who ascribe divinity to aught beside God – QS16:120

The Arabic words at the start of the verse were “ibraheema kana ommatan” – literally translated as Abraham was a nation. He is no longer a self or individual. He is humanity.

Then this tweet came along:

RT @beradadisini: Our job is to be an awake people… utterly conscious, to attend to our world | Native Americans, as told by Louis Owens cc. @evamuchtar

Then this post on Facebook:

“Live your daily life in such a way that understanding and compassion can be shared with as many people around you as possible. Cultivating peace is not a matter of days; it should be cultivated generation after generation. Your children and your grandchildren will be your continuation as practitioners of peace. The question is not how much you can do; the question is whether you are doing your best. If you are doing your best then you are in the Pure Land of the Buddha, in the Kingdom of God. You don’t have to worry anymore.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

Then that word: “Capisce?”

Great. Now that we’ve cleared that one out, on to the next topic.
