I no longer care about the reasons why one country is warring with another, why this religion has it out for that religion, why this group of people believes that group of people is loving the wrong people or the wrong gender; or why people, based on skin color alone, take issue with people of some other skin color. I don’t care anymore. I just don’t. I don’t even want to know the reasons why. I’m done. I am flat out tired of trying to keep up with the verbal and physical vitriol that people are inflicting on one another in this world. Can’t do it. Not so much that I can’t, but rather I won’t. I refuse to spend another single spare moment of my time reading about the problem because quite frankly, I know darn well what the problem is. Pride. Fear. Ego. Greed. Hatred. Smallness. You see, that’s where all the discord comes from. A being who loves themselves and honors and respects all of creation does not have it within them to hate or cast judgment on another. Simply doesn’t happen. And since these problems are so rampant here, that tells me that we’ve got a whole world full of people who neither love themselves nor honor and respect any or all of creation. Quite literally, they aren’t in their right mind because no one in their right mind is hateful. That’s why it’s a disease as far as I’m concerned and they don’t even know they have it. The hateful are self-righteous and indignant. No point in trying to reason with them. So, we’re up against a big challenge here, but that’s ok. We can handle it. I have complete faith in us. We’re divine, unlimited beings and we’ve come here to do great things! Here’s the deal: we begin to fix this mess by going out in the world every day and modeling self love. We also extend that love to all others. Sound hard? Eh, maybe for a while at first… until you get used to it. Eventually though, you will develop compassion and a sense of understanding for these souls who can barely stomach themselves, these souls who have no clue about their immeasurable worth and divinity. You might wish you could show them how amazing they are, but that’s not our job. They have to get there in their own time, on their own terms. Just keep modeling love and self love out there in the world. People learn better when we show them who we are rather than telling them how they should be, and that’s not our business anyway. Not all will listen, not all will be affected by our actions, and that’s ok too. It’s a slow process. After all, the world has an awful lot of un-learning to do and when people who’ve been hateful start to wake up, they’re going to experience immense guilt. That’s where we come in. Now some of y’all are going to be tempted to relish their mental turmoil so let me gently remind you that love doesn’t enjoy the pain of others and NONE of us are without fault. So please wrap your head around the idea that we MUST forgive them! No matter what they’ve done, we have to. If you seek a peaceful, loving world you’ve got to live, breathe, and think that way at all times. It’s imperative. Forgive them. They know not what they do. I promise you that. Had they known, they never would have done it. Let’s let them wake up gently and heal peacefully for the sake of the world. This is our chance to get things back on track. Work on whatever blame or anger that resides within you now because the wake-up calls are going out daily and the souls that are waking up are scared and confused and hurting. Let’s love them and each other back to health and co-create the type of world in which no one lives in fear, no one is unloved, and no one is without food, clothing or shelter. We are the dream makers! It’s up to us! Let’s dream a better dream because it’s long past time to put an end to this nightmare! Peace be with all of us, each and every one. Peace be within you, peace be upon you.
