Interpersonal and political conflicts, wars and armed struggles are raging across countries, ethnic groups and religious communities in the world today. There seems to be no way of stopping the violence that kills and maims men, women and children. At the same time, natural disasters such as earthquakes and phenomenal weather changes are threatening the safety of communities, and even the existence of the world.
The writer examines and suggests why such situations occurred in the past and are continuing with increasing frequency as mankind moves into the future. The observations and the postulations made have been derived from decades of life and business experiences, as well as social, economic, political and religious discussions between the author and his late father.
From these interactions and an open-minded understanding of various faith communities, the author makes the case for adopting 10 axioms and a Let God ‘Owe’ You (LGOU) approach to life and nature, with the hope that this practice will help move human beings closer to world peace and the long-term sustainability of life on earth.
About the Authors
Ya Kunz is not a professional writer. He felt compelled to pen his thoughts about the conflicts and seeming contradictions between religions, business entities and human communities because of the deep philosophical conversations he had with his late father over the decades they had worked together in the business. He found from the many discussion notes his father had recorded over the years, that there are certain principles of life and the conduct of oneself in human and organisational relationships which could bring about greater harmony in everyday living. Many of these principles have their origins in the covert teachings of the major world religions, and a whole-hearted and sincere adoption of these axioms is the world’s best chance towards world peace.
LGOU: Let God Owe You, a non-fiction work, is his first published book.
Palmer Fang is a Singaporean who enjoys words. He worked with Ya Kunz over a period of 2 years to translate the original journals and notes of Ya Kunz’s father from Bahasa Indonesian and Chinese, into English for the English-reading market.
