Manchester on my mind - I want to go deep inside today - reflect on stuff that matters ..... REFLECTION.


You are beautiful
Every human person is beautiful
EVEN I am beautiful - it is still difficult to say but I believe.

It is some behaviour which is not beautiful.
Often what we don’t like in another is their behaviour
NOT their personality - their unique character.

Some behaviour is driven by emotions.
We all have these behaviours
Sometimes they are good
Sometimes they are bad.
We make mistakes - respond reactively not strategically
ALL because our emotions rise to the surface quickly and …..
If we don’t train our brain to get into gear quickly - we are a reactor.

We are still responsible for our actions.
For our words.
For our lives lived.

Some behaviours are deliberately planned and delivered.
These can be positively beautiful
Negatively wicked.

We are all responsible for our actions -
To the law of our land
To God if we believe ……. or not.

Working with young offenders all my life
I have seen much offending/crime/violence delivered from a reactor-
 - emotional behaviour driven by passion of the dangerous kind.

I have also worked with young and older humans who have planned & delivered
armed robbery and physical vicious attacks.
These is a different kind of behaviours - planned strategic.
These are not mistakes and we are responsible, more-so, for our actions.
Often the law will differentiate between murder and man-slauaghter.
This is what I am on about.

There is a difference in behaviours - we all make mistakes - often with great regret.

Manchester on my mind …………..
The act of savagery committed in Manchester on 22 May 217 was a planned - strategic  - deliberate act.

Salman Ramadan Abedi is a beautiful human.
He was created as such - like us all.
An innocent child.
Then - somewhere along his life journey he was polluted by something / someone.
(We are all responsible for our pollution of the planet and/or the pollution of other humans.

His behaviour was horrific - he is responsible for his actions in eternity.

You may have difficulty associating the the word ‘beautiful’ with Salman - I do too.
I have difficulty associating the word ‘beautiful’ with myself.
Do you?

He seems to me to have been a man driven by hate rather than love.
I want to be driven by LOVE - not hate.

This is where I am at  …………….

YOU are beautiful whatever your behaviour …………….
