I am addressing this post to you in response tot he post you posted of Sara Bokker.

The story is genuine in the fact that what was found was not a religious belief, but what is a spiritual awakening.

This life is geared to give attention to self, an engineered design default.
The reason for that I believe is so that out of the selfish desires of the flesh good may abound, but not before the experience.

The world of the flesh is temporary,yet may be time to experience the good that may come out of it, only if there is a spiritual awakening.

Good is the other side of it and comes only with a struggle.

The struggle equates with suffering, and it is in the suffering that we seek to find release, freedom, or a religion to help give us that peace of mind.

Sara seems to have found hers, and if gives her peace of mind and love for God, then that is good.

The whole point of diversity is to find the common ground of unity.

Unity is the end result of love, the common ground of which when practiced, knows no differences of beliefs, but rather sees the soul as one loved by the creator equally the same as self.

I find my peace in Jesus Christ, and like Sara,am liberated as well.
For there is nothing in this world worth losing that peace over.

We live and lead by example. If what is god comes out of us, others will take note and may inquire.
Blessings, AJ

If she wants to wear the Hijab, so be it.

However, who are you to tell a woman she has to wear one?

This is just like one of those "info-mercials" for some useless gewgaw. Sara B. bought one, and hey, it's the greatest thing since sliced bread! Now everyone else should go out and buy one, too.
