It is difficult to see the acts of carnage, greed, destruction, and hatred that are so prevalently portrayed in the news, on line, and in the myriad of messages sent back and forth between concerned and loving individuals who just want it to stop.
Indeed, humanity as a whole seems to be trying its best, with the tools it knows, to bring a stop to the violence that plays out in our world. The formation of charities, foundations and causes fueled from a place of disdain, fear and disgust for the acts only serves to ensure the perpetuation of these deeds.
All the money in the world cannot effect the change we wish to see in the world.
It is easy to hate and fear those who purport such acts upon humanity…to see them as ‘other’ than who ‘we’ are…in other words…as separate from ourselves.
This is the root of what ails us. Unity is the only way we will mend the source of our despair and create the new…from a foundation of love.
All are sinless in the eyes of God. While that may go against the grain of many a religious sermon, it is the truth as I have come to know it. The idea of right and wrong, good and bad,DUALITY, is what causes us to believe we are separate in the first place…and the beliefs are deeply imbedded in our psyche.
However, when we are able to see “what is” for what it is, without judgment, something truly miraculous occurs…we realize that we are free. And freedom is not some far off experience that might occur when we go to heaven, nor is it something we must fight for. It is here. It is now.
Freedom is available to each and every one of us; the one saddened by the violence perceived, the one perpetrating the violence, the one charged with exacting the justice, and those carrying out the sentence. We are all the same…we all have the power to change what we see here before us.
It starts with us.
It’s an inside job.
Pay attention to what bothers you.
Ask for help.
Help is there.
Love never fails.
In Love I Am,
