It was Lincoln who said “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedom, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
What can we do to not destroy ourselves through these challenging times?
I had a long conversation (90 minutes) last week with a friend in India. It is interesting to hear the perspective of those dying and those begging for the vaccine. Here in America, we are paying people to get the vaccine. You shake your head when you hear people not wanting the vaccine. How much noise have they listened to or do they believe they will not get the disease?
There is so much noise out there and too many of us are listening to it. There is so much fear out there and too many people are buying into it. It is time to think in a reasoned and organized manner. Listen to various opinions and ask yourself questions before making a decision. Try very hard not to get caught up in the anger that is so prevalent in the culture. It is not just happening in the United States but it is becoming a world-wide phenomena of circling the wagons. Close the doors and don’t let them in. If it is Republicans or Democrats, the atmosphere is us vs. them. Fear is the driver. Lack of reasoned thinking is the gasoline for the engine and politics and religion are the vehicle. Stay balanced, keep a healthy detachment and try not to react to another’s behavior–unless they have become a danger to you or others.
Above all else, move to your higher mind/self. We must learn to monitor our thoughts. This will be the hardest work we will ever do. To stay in one’s higher mind, and do that consistently, is extremely difficult work. We live in this man-made world filled with much negativity, anxiety and worry. It is very hard not to get caught up in it. It will seem inauthentic at first. All these challenges are happening to you and yet you must remember that you partner up with God or your higher source for all your activities. Challenges won’t stop but you learn to keep a healthy detachment. You must learn to be in this world but remember you are not of it. You are a tourist on this plane of existence for a certain period of time. You are learning to make decisions and handle emotional energy. You are not here to be comfortable, right or wrong. You are learning to use this world but not to depend upon it.
In order to have any inner peace, you must be able to make your decisions based on wisdom combined with Divine wisdom. You are part of the human species which is growing and will eventually grow out of this stage of its’ development. Just as the Neanderthals have progressed in development, this species which we are apart of will also grow out of this phase. It is a process that is part of Divine creation. We all are of the same whole. We just think we are so individualized and have all these rights and we defend in rather ugly ways. The truth of the matter is that if my car was drowning in the river and my perceived enemy was the only one who was there to save me, he would quickly become my friend.
To save ourselves as well as comfort ourselves, we must move to our higher consciousness and ask for help in doing so. The invisible world is our true home. This man-made world is improving and will continue to improve if we allow it. We used to die from lack of good sanitation. We now have toilets. We use to toil all day to get food to eat, we now have farms and automation to feed masses of people. We used to get typhoid, polio, whooping cough, small pox, measles and some day we can say covid because we have vaccines. We have an incredibly good future ahead but you would never think so listening to the crazy speech that is out there. We must discipline ourselves, keep a healthy detachment and not react before thinking it through. Think like a chess player. Looking ahead and planning and thinking of the outcomes that could occur because of the move you are about to make.
Stay in your higher consciousness as you are always connected to the Sacred, Eternal and Divine through your breath. It is your true partner.
