Many of us, if not all at one point or another, complain about our jobs, our necessary tasks in daily living, our responsibilities. It is clear that the excitement behind these opportunities has been lost.
Coming to the earth we have choice in whether we will assist each other in advancement, or inhibit the progress of each other. It is apparent that most people choose who they support and who they choose to destroy.
It is incredible to me how the human mind sees some as more deserving and others as less, I suppose it is due to the reasoning that some advance our agendas while others are perceived to deter progression.
The question becomes: what is true progression?
There are many ‘takers’ in this world who refuse to contribute to the success of the whole. These are usually the ones this struggle is with. It may not be their ‘fault’ as they may have come from an extremely poor circumstance where the only way they could get enough was to take it. Often hard work isn’t sufficient for success.
There will always be someone who will put their thumb on the advancement of others. It could be because they have seen the suffering and will do anything to prevent it in their own lives, even if it means forcing others to stay in lack.
How do we bridge the gap? How do we understand, fully, that ALL life is deserving of having enough? While some amass wealth beyond their needs, hoarding it as though they fear it may be taken, making sure that if it is they will have reserves, they turn a blind eye to those will fewer opportunities of self sufficiency.
Compassion for others seems to have taken a back seat to care for self. And it should, but not to the extent of standing idly by, turning a blind eye to starvation of people and animals, toxic dumping and poisoning of the earth, waters, and air. Self care does not equate to selfishness.
During this cycle of survival it appears many hearts have been seemingly irreversibly damaged. Let us hope that it is not irreversible, and that there is still possibility of healing for all.
When it comes down to it, fear has been the base of motivation, even surpassing greed and need for power… for at their base, is where fear lives. Even the one people refer to as Satan, or the Devil, operates from fear… fear of being under someone else’s thumb, fear of being powerless. As crazy as it seems …
I once asked my mother what she thought our purpose on earth is. Her response? Simply to survive. This made me very sad as I thought about her struggles and suffering.
My hope is that when we come out of the cycle of surviving, we will enter a cycle of thriving … for all who dare to enter this physical form.
I look forward to seeing humanity show their potential for love and care, equal to, or greater than, their capacity for selfishness and destruction.
This vision I have is what drives me in the honing of my own mind and actions. It is a reality which requires constant attention and effort. It is obvious myself, and all others, are no where near the end goal of peace for all. I dream of the day when, miraculously, all hearts will be mended, healed, and constant joy returns to life. I long for the day when we look at each other and see the amazing qualities we share.
Faith in its nearness keeps me hopeful, and watchful for signs of the turning, of the rebirth of the incredible loving spirit which is LIFE.
