We draw lines on maps and buy and sell land and buildings, but we can’t take anything from this world when we cross into the spiritual world. Who really owns the planet? It’s not any of us, no matter who we are. This planet, its land, its riches, all assets, all the monies, are actually owned by the Higher Power. Life is the greatest, most compassionate of gifts, and everything we see is loaned for our use, to be productive and successful in our efforts to live a meaningful life.
None of us are innocent, but we are, to some degree, pawns in a big, secretive game played by wealthy men. Is there anything we can do to break free? Yes, but we have some hard habits to break. We can turn off our TVs more, get outdoors and appreciate Mother Earth. We can tell our children what advertisements are: manipulations of our desires for stuff—and that we don’t have to buy into all the clamor. We can put away our e-devices for an hour every day and share the time with others.
We can stop obsessing about media reports on this or that happening. (What would the media do if we ignored them and created our own stories?) The entertainment media cater to what they think we want to hear; and, worse, the “news” media filter and slant the news to their points of view. Do we know the truth about anything?
We can and should quiet the chatter of our own minds and get in touch with who we are and why we are here. We can teach our children that all people are equal, and that acts of kindness link us to the pool of Universal Love. We can volunteer and show them how to make a real difference in our communities.
We need to forge our own paths and make our own life-truths, and get in touch with our souls, for this connects us to God, the Source of answers to all personal and world problems. Every problem comes with its own spiritual solution, but we have to be quiet, open, and reflective to be aware of it.
Energy gathers around us, and the way we feel joins us with energy of the same kind. There aren’t any answers in muck-flinging, but there sure are in the beams of light. When we lift the veil, we see the invaluable heart connections linking all of life and that everything else pales in significance.
