I saw him there, up high on the tallest mountain. He seemed so far away, and yet also quite near. I was in a meadow, the sun was shining upon the golden grasses. Before walking straight into the sun, and I believe into this life, I looked to the right and up at him as he stood there looking out over the trees. He looked at me, and without words told me he was mine.
There are those who still seek the messiah. They believe he will do certain things … granting favor to some, while rebuking others.
This ‘thing’ people devote their lives to, noses in books, focused on learning as much as they can so they will earn the reward of heaven … it lacks the heart, it lacks true connection to that which they long to have relationship with. Yes, studying the scripture is a much better habit than many others out there in the world, but still it is a habit, done with hope of reward in mind.
I see very little kindness given to each other.
A person just yesterday made claim that arthritis can be cured. The communication was a bit condescending as this person refused to offer any kind of documentation, advice, or links to this ‘cure’, claiming instead that they were not presently taking any new clients.
There are many people who have made it their ‘job’ of helping people. Unfortunately, most of them refuse to assist folks unless they get paid, offering opinions on what people are doing wrong, and never offering advice on how to get it right, without payment. One can only wonder, do they actually know what they speak of, or are they merely a scam artist, looking for that paycheck?
What ever happened to sharing knowledge with each other for the sake of helping each other, no reciprocation necessary … yet reciprocation always is, because all people do the same? It used to blow my mind how co-workers refused to share any of their knowledge of certain skills … it was as though they feared they might be replaced, or perhaps they felt that by sharing, the one who would benefit from the knowledge would not have to work as hard at learning. Isn’t this the point though? To make life easier for each other?
I understand the need to make a living, I really do … I’ve been doing it for a number of years. There is a difference in being of service, and of being insulting of others efforts in order to drum up business. Circumstances have gotten quite twisted as the idea of success revolves around ‘money’ and ‘status’ rather than a genuine sharing and caring.
We are going back to a healthier way of being, sooner than any of us really know.
I sit here eating a cinnamon roll and I think, oh yes this is tasty … tasty poison. I look forward to the day when poison will not be in our food, when the soil our vegetables are grown in is not full of toxins, and when the water runs pure once more, in rivers and in rain. What is good for the mind and body will require a little more effort than swinging into a drive through for that poison burger … no concept of the hidden within which is eaten.
I look forward to sentient beings not being used for food. No more rivers of blood, no more terror, or pain or abuse for any living being.
My hope is, that what is coming does so swiftly. May those that are left in the aftermath help each other rather than harm each other. May the world which is reborn be a kinder, gentler world, where honor, morals, and integrity are inhabited in the heart and mind … may love and kindness outweigh them all, and may greed and need for power be forever abolished.
