Daily Affirmation

I do not believe in Hell as a netherworld filled with weeping and gnashing of teeth. Yet the existence of Hell is daily affirmed. Not as a divine creation of a sovereign God but as an instrument of Man. We seem to create Hell on Earth for each other. We create Hell when we commit or tolerate genocide. We create Hell when we lob bombs and drop missiles. We create Hell in all of our daily acts that are not rooted in Love. In this moment, I am reminded of purpose and one of my simplest ambitions, to Love more.
