Forum For Naga Reconciliation Express Christmas Greetings
Advent is celebrated with joy all over the world. Yet, very close to our nation, close to God, first of all, strongly disagrees: “My opinions are not your opinions, for your ways are My ways, declares the Lord.” We know God is different. He is not the realization of human imagination. We are like a problem. The coming of Christ is the return of peace and hope among people. There is more peace than the absence of war and anger. Peace to the Anaga people means blessings, healing, good life, good living and justice. Christ’s coming will bring His joy and peace to the earth. This peace is the disappearance of new life and new humanity, not death and division. The coming of Christ is also the fulfillment of people’s needs and desires. However, we cannot impose our belief in God on ourselves; we must expand our narrow, man-made walls of security and hope. In order to receive the hope God has given us through Jesus Christ, we must be loved. “Praise God by being hospitable to one another, just as Christ made you his friends.” We must begin to move beyond desires driven by strict and rigid boundaries and instead cultivate an open and flexible heart. Often, we are tempted to distinguish between “spiritual” things and “political” things. This is part of the complex debate that we fail to resolve time and time again. Nagas could not bring himself to believe that division would bring the light of political unity. This political system creates political and social lines between us. So we end up living in a world of isolation, a world we keep creating because it is reality, deep inside us, because of pain, fear, hatred – we believe loneliness is the solution; hopefully this will dissuade others people. Most people may not realize that what they are doing is “cancellation.” Advent reminds us to embrace each other. This is not just a comparison between man and God; it is a comparison between man and God. You have political and social power. Both are indispensable. To be sure, reconciliation is not the exclusive domain of the Congress for Naga Reform (FNR). To be honest, the main conflict faced by the Anaga people, reconciliation is the reason why one of us should join the Naga family. We appeal to all sane persons and Naga political parties to act in good faith and without colour. We need honest criticism and love. Abuse triggered by negative emotions is an act of violence and violence. Likewise, rather than eliminating the “other,” ideological and political rigor can also create alienation. Today, the Nagas are reinterpreting old ideas about the future and moving forward with new hope. Our Founding Fathers said that government “belongs to the people” and we should exercise control. Like all social groups, the Nagas are unique in our history and freedom movement. Such is the life of the Nagas. We need urgent support and understanding of the truth and the burying of ideas that still weaken and divide us. In the future of the Dragons, as with all those concerned, it is different and unique in its nature to work with our wisdom in planning for the end of the new Dragon Age. Having an identity means boundaries, but in a world filled with identities and boundaries, Naga’s boundaries should be simple and flexible. It’s important for us to create an identity and understand how we are different yet larger, confusing and unified at the same time. Our understanding of ourselves as a church, community, and nation must transcend culture and geography. This is the unique political ideology of the postmodern world and we must change it in order to survive as a nation and have a chance. We must live side by side and together with other countries and regions in the 21st century. If we reject this idea, we will only cut ourselves off from the future and become slaves to the past. To get to this level we need real dreams and big ideas locally and internationally. Nagas are beautiful and can develop in socialization and identity formation just like anyone else. Don’t let the past hold us back and control our future; we need to reinterpret the past in order to find Naga’s future. We ask the Naga people to clearly understand that as long as we are united and determined to build our nation, we have nothing to lose. But we know, and we hope; this is our historical and political right to celebrate and proudly protect through progress and time. This is real politics, and history matters. After all, what does it mean to be able to defend an identity that is divided, unfettered, and unfair? The Federation for Naga Renewal (FNR) strongly urges everyone to be generous and forward-thinking. Our people are working hard so every success is the end of the beginning. The present situation must be brought before all decency. We want this to be our own. This Advent we strive to live in peace and hope with the Naga family. We wish the Naga family and the people in general a period of peace and hope.
