Why Not? 

Why not make peace?
Why not love your enemies/
Why not bless those who persecute you?
Why not trust others to do better next time?
Why not put your faith in humanity's essential Goodness?
Why not give All to All to have All to give again?
Why not be the best you can be with everyone all the time?
Why not claim the Kingdom of God is within?
Why not begin today as though it is the first day of the rest of your life?
Why not let "by-gones" be "by-gones"?
Why not just love away all the fear, worry and anxiety?
Why not?

Gosh! I don't know....
If it were that simple, wouldn’t' we all just do it?
Looks like there is a part of our learned personality that is hanging on?
Sounds like people want to win and so they don’t lose?
Sounds like guilt sets us up with blinders to our own misperceptions.
Sounds like we would rather be “right” than be “happy”.

Oh Well!
I would rather be happy.
That's why I write these reminders….for me and You!
