Well, well, well ... there's all sorts of excitement in our world!! Wild weather patterns, revolutions, mass deaths of animals, a rise in UFO sightings ... what a great soap opera we're creating together!
Someone said to me the other day -- "Look at all the bad things happening in the world. What if the whole idea of Armageddon is true?"
A Hawai'i friend, Tony Burroughs, author and creator of the Intenders Circles, wrote in a newsletter not long ago:
The mainstream consensus reality
is but one reality
out of an infinite number of realities
that you can choose to put your attention on.
This is the Truth!
Even while watching the news, when we look at our individual lives, most of you who are reading this can say "These things that are happening are not my reality. Sure, I have my challenges, yet my life is pretty good. I have food, clean water, a roof over my head, friends and my neighborhood is pretty peaceful."
We have a lot to be grateful for -- because there but for our consciousness, go we.
Another person I talked with was raging over the injustices of various governments. I reminded them - the government is us. "So what do I do?" they asked... "just sit on my butt and pray?" "Sure - why not" I responded, "unless you have a really compelling desire to do something and can figure out what to do ... you might as well. Complaining or being angry only adds fuel to the fire. Choose another reality."
I believe, that as a student of the Science of Mind who's byline is "Change your thinking, change your life," or as a follower of the Master Teacher Jesus who said "It is done unto you as you believe," our job is to keep the High Watch. Our job is to choose another reality.
How do we do that? We have to look at what we believe about God. What ever we believe about God is what we get to experience in our lives. Do we really believe God is the energy of Unconditional Love? Or do we believe God is the energy of competition? Do we believe God is the energy of Divine Peace? Or revenge? It is totally up to us.
I know you've heard about the old Cherokee who is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."
"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one we feed."
Which reality are you feeding? Spend time each morning contemplating the nature of The Divine in your life.
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
There is only one Life, one Heart, one Mind, one, one, one. It's all God. This Life is the life I am living. This heart is my heart, this mind, my mind. God and I are one.
Knowing this, I choose now to experience a peace filled reality by focusing on those qualities of the One that bring me peace. I refuse to get sucked into the mainsteam consensus reality that wants me to be afraid. If everything is God, then there is nothing to be afraid of. I choose another reality.
I know that as I deeply embody this consciousness, I am not only serving myself, but all of humanity. It only takes one to know the Truth, and the Truth will set us free. I will be the One.
I am so grateful for the adventure that is my life. I am grateful to know the Source of that life, and to know that the Source is Love. I celebrate my freedom from fear, and my awareness that I always have choice.
I release these words knowing they are so - and so It is.
