For many years of speaking, being on social media, facilitating groups, and moving with my own life process, I find my self contemplating something that must be said and feels like it isn’t being said. Let me start with this example, a person, lets say feels unhappy, lost, and is searching for purpose, so they find a religion, the religion gives them purpose again, inspiration, and allows them to deal with life in a more manageable place. So in their excitement they want to share it with people, which at first seems cute, so we listen, then from sharing comes their way is right and we are wrong, and now a religion that has helped this person, now turns into their way being right and others wrong, and they seem very comfortable in pointing that out. Now this example is of course a simple way of looking at the situation we are in as a country, and world.
Let me remind us all, including myself, this country was founded on people who couldn’t take the government of England and formed their own government here in America. That process has been a process, as we as individuals, and groups move through and have moved through our divisiveness with race, creed, sexuality, religion, women’s rights, parents rights, etc…and now we find ourselves at a cross roads in our country and world. We have a great chance to come together in religion and find common ground with all religions and become one force not a divisive force against each other. At the very core all religions teach love, kindness, and compassion and somewhere along the line we are losing that message to being right and making others wrong.
We have 313 million people who if decided to come together and help each other out, serve each other, can shift this planet in a DRAMATIC way and in a way where we can end us against them. Right now if we wake up, we will discover that it is not us against us. We are being pushed to fight each other, against each other, the media whether on purpose or not is allowing our collective will to be captured by nonsense.
If this country falls, or the world falls it will be because people shut up and did nothing. We are here as a big family. We will rise together or fall together. But if this world collapses, it will be because the people of the world did nothing, said nothing, and were to trapped by fear to speak the truth. Jesus spoke up, Buddha spoke up, Rumi spoke up, Martin Luther King spoke up, and they did it in a way that brought us together not separate us.
