Some feel that this is it. Once this life ends, we either move on to heaven or hell, one shot at it. What if this is all wrong? What if it is only a control mechanism to keep people subservient? What if we all really are equal, and the deeds we do, and the acts we perform, will be the determining factor on what remains upon our return to this beautiful planet?
Let us say, for a moment, that this is not all there is. That you will return again to this planet for another life. Not because you are being punished, but because the task is not complete … the task of cleaning up and beautifying this earth for all.
Greed and chaos run rampant. Minds have been manipulated into the ‘consumption’ way of living, many have been made to believe that more is better. So they do whatever it takes to gain it, and they forget about the backs they have marched over to get where they are, those that they have left behind while pursuing their addiction to things. I do not for a moment believe it is anyone’s fault, per se, instead I view it as an illness … much like gambling, drinking, or drugs, or any other addictions one might think of. This illness is fostered by those who wish to fill their pockets. Look at the billboards advertising powerball and the ‘potential’ for winning. See the people pour their savings into this lure, many losing their homes.
Tomorrow will come. You might return for another life. Would you like to return to green pastures and forests, alive with the music of joy? … Fresh running streams and rivers that you can actually drink from? Would you like to see people who are not afraid to reach for one another, without the potential for harm?
Only you have the power to change your part in this path. Only you can control the waves you leave in your wake. Every action you take affects all life in your path. You may not see it, or even be aware of it, however the ripple effect of your life is powerful, and you just may feel the affect of it should you return.
This is what is meant by karma. Not as punishment, but as in creating that which you will return to, should you choose to believe this is possible, should you choose to plan for it. What harm can building a more peaceful world do? For even should you believe you will not be back, your children, grandchildren and others will follow in footsteps left behind.
