It’s Another Sunday Night
Another week finished. A new week is on its way. We have been through a lot, all of us. We are feeling a lot of emotions about the world we have created. We can look at all the events and take sides about what is right and what is not. I don’t believe that serves us. Without trying to change the other person, which we cannot, we get to make some powerful choices. A nation divided will not stand. At least it will not stand, as a beacon for others to see and emulate. From each side of the issues, it is easy to see how we are right and they are wrong. If we remain in this position, the gridlock, will literally kill us.
So where do we go? Back to basics for me. It is Universal Principles that have changed and formed my life. These are concepts that Lou Ann and I live by. We learned them thirty five years ago from Arnold Patent. He enumerated nineteen of them. Here is number eight, Mutual Support, it seems appropriate right now.
Our Universe functions as a mutual support system, in which each and every thing in existence, relates to and affects every other thing. Every person and circumstance in our lives is there to support us by reflecting back to us the beliefs we hold in our consciousness.
The prevalent belief that we are naturally competitive and adversarial is just a mirroring back to us, of our acceptance of that belief.
Releasing beliefs from our consciousness frees the love of God to flow through us and to those with whom we interact.
Mutual support then reflects more of our natural state of Oneness, and becomes the foundation for rebuilding community based on love, from family to village, city, state, nation and world.
The more we look for the love that is present in each event and circumstance in our lives, the more we appreciate how perfect the Universe’s support for us truly is.
As we begin the next thirty days together, let us take a different tack. We can still do the same things we planned to do. We can volunteer, canvass, make phone calls and help others to get involved to vote, march on the Capitol, make passionate speeches. This time let us realize that there is only one race, human, deeply flawed, and currently not serving planet Earth. However, we are the only ones who can break this stalemate. Let us pause, perhaps pray, maybe visualize, that what will occur in our world, will be the power of love, healing hearts that are broken and minds that are poisoned. So that we will all stand together one day and hold hands around the world. From my hopeful heart to yours, Thomas
