I have been somewhat silent as to the events unfolding before our eyes. We all are witnessing events unfolding before us that suggest the world seems to be turning upside down. The truth is that it is! But is this chaos politically, financially, and environmentally good or bad? This is the question we should be examining for ourselves. Indeed, how we react universally and collectively to these events will most certainly determine our global fate.
Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, all teach the same concepts. Control of our body, mind, and soul leads us to a greater understanding of the universe. However, these rays of enlightenment do not become part of our conscious being without trials and tribulations. This is not a particular or unique principle reserved to a particular religion, but instead is a universal concept that pervades all philosophical disciplines, even the atheistic and agnostics believe systems. Our thoughts and how we discipline our thoughts are indeed the precursors to the acts and forms of what we call our reality. We create our future by these very thoughts. The future does not unfold in any manner without our permission to do so.
I have spent many hours contemplating what I can do to affect our future. I think many of us feel so helpless at times. How can I affect financial markets? How can I do anything to stop this fanatical terror that seems to be gripping most of the world? How I can correct the disparities brought on by greed and those who seek and seem to have so much power in the world? I cannot claim extraordinary wisdom or understanding for I am but a simple man with common knowledge.
The result of this intense meditation yielded to me one simple, but I believe profound realization. I must simply not give my permission for these realities to continue. By that, I mean, I will not allow my thoughts to give credence to these events in relationship to how they affect the way I THINK. I am sovereign. We don’t end hate in the world by hating those who act on those corrupted beliefs. We don’t allow wars and atrocities to unfold by participating in suppressing them. We don’t agree to be subjected economically by participating in the economic structures that have been formed to enslave us.
I know many will say, great, but c’mon, do we all become hermits? Is that your solution? No, what we do is simply not become part of that paradigm. It is simple to state, but very difficult to act upon, or is it?
We can associate with like minded people, and we can support one another as we move forward. We can use our collective power politically to re-organize our governments to act as we demand. The recent events in the US concerning gun control should be a very good example. 90% of the people supported simple things like background checks, limited capacity magazines, and limits on access to assault type weapons. The congress voted 56-to 44 to support the will of the people, and yet did not prevail. I think we all understand instinctively what we need to do during the next elective cycle.
We all must simply begin to act on what we KNOW is right. This extends to geo-politics, economics, and how we support such things as militaries and the banker backed war machines. We should reach across all boundaries, borders, and religious beliefs to say we ARE in charge.
So I suggest to you all that you consider not looking at the news, or this or that teacher or guru, or what your neighbor thinks, but instead just take a few moments each day to ask YOURSELF is this acceptable to me? Then simply begin from that moment to visualize a world based on universal love, hope, prosperity, and peace. Humbly submitted for your consideration.
