REBLOG! REBLOG! REBLOG!
This fight is no longer about a park, it is about human rights and democracy. The people have spoken, they have made their wishes clear, and the government is going against that. In response to peaceful unarmed protesting, riot police fired tear gas and pepper spray as well as water cannons into the crowd. This isn’t getting nearly as much media coverage as it should be, so let’s rely on the internet to spread the awareness, shall we? Share support on twitter using #OccupyGezi (the original demonstration that resulted in police brutality and an even larger uprising) and #ResIstanbul. Let this serve as a message to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Rest in Peace ABDULLAH CÖMERT and the rest of the handful of protesters that lost their lives this week, you will not be forgotten and we will not let your deaths be in vain. Wishing a swift and full recovery for those in the hospital, and best of luck to those of you still on the streets.

My answer to that would be that I am more spiritual now than religious.
I am starting to embrace religions as one now. Traditions dating back thousands of years are repeated in so many religions today that I can’t see the difference any more. When I say God is one, I truly believe it.
My belief, please don’t take offence… Religion today is an institution established by man for various reasons. Today, they all seem organised, structured and far from truth. You confess your sins to a member of that institution, go to a specific place to worship and all are told when and how to pray. Can you see the disconnection already?
Spirituality on the other hand can be developed or it can grow within one from a thing such as religion and the most important thing is that it is not imposed on you but rather comes when you seek it within yourself.
This is a choice we all have and this is what free will means.
Which posts in particular make you angry?
If the post is tied or related to politics, unfairness, racial profiling etc then this is completely normal to feel. You are feeling the injustice in today’s world. Although I realized I have grown old worrying about issues in the world that I have no control over and that I can’t change I still catch myself firing some F*** You bombs to our corrupted system! This, however does not stop me from appreciating the contrast of the world we are living in and seeing the beauty in all because at the end of the day we are God’s creation and in that we are Creators of our own destiny. So, what ever issues you are seeing in the world, what ever you are going through, good or bad it is a manifestation of your higher self. (Please let me know if this doesn’t make sense and I will explain it). Otherwise just read up on Law of Attraction.
If it’s spiritual posts then it could be a reflection of your own self. Analyse what it is that is really making you angry, what is putting you in that spot where you distance yourself from love and choose anger because every time we chose anger we pull ourselves away from who we truly are.
Please bare in mind when I speak of God I speak of ALL that IS. I speak of that person, thing, angels, Gods, Alah, Buddah, Krishna etc any point of worship that connects you and gives you the sense of love, joy, compassion and peace within you.
I wish you full heart of love and a clear head my friend.
