As we watch the world unfold these days, one has to ask, is this who we really are? Is our destiny to be at perpetual war, constantly fighting poverty and ignorance, or is there a higher state of reality in which we can envision peace and prosperity for all. Who are we really?
Are we doomed to be this?
..Or are we destined to be this?
I don’t pretend to have any answers here. In fact, I am not even sure I know the right questions. However, I am at least questioning myself and the nature of who I am and am destined to be. Maybe that’s the point, just continually asking that question.
There does seem to be something “in the air” that says we are at a crucial decision point as a collective consciousness. The universe does seem to be confronting us with events and situations that do compel the awakened person to seriously consider their role in the “all of it”.
On one hand, we are confronted with what seems to be a reality of a dog-eat-dog world. Get what you can when you can. On the other hand, we see ourselves in a much more informed and civil role when we are confronted collectively with disasters or tyrants. So again, I ask, who are we?
This really isn’t a religious issue, but more of a spiritual issue. Given the condition of the world and issues we face, it is time to have this discussion, even if it is just with ourselves quietly in our quiet place.
