“Deliver me from all evildoers that talk nothing but sickness and failure. Grant me the companionship of men who think success and men who work for it. Loan me associates who cheerfully face the problems of a day and try hard to overcome them. Relieve me of all cynics and critics. Give me good health and the strength to be of real service to the world, and I’ll get all that’s good for me, and will give what’s left to those who want it.”
– William Feather
Last night or should I say early this morning I laid awake in darkness not only the darkness around me but within me. I could not see how my world could be so bad and why no matter how many attempts I make it never seems to change. After many tears and a long discussion into darkness I felt I was no closer to understanding. What is it I search for and want in my life?
When I read this quote something stirred and the darkness I was very uncomfortably finding myself in, light shined into. Tired of the lies and cynics, the evildoers and the men who only perpetuate fear and doubt, I am searching and wanting people who share in my belief. I want to belong and I want to engage in a life I deserve. I want to feel needed again. I want to surround myself with people who believe that success comes from supporting each other. When we diminish another living soul we diminish the whole. I want people around me who find solutions. People who find answers, not people pointing the blame at another to deflect their own blame is the problem and these people never will find a solution. I want people who when you shake their hand on an agreement you have their word, their bond and know that is good enough. The hardest path is one of honorable actions. Stand firm in your convictions knowing it is for the good of all and not for a few and know when something is wrong it is OK to fail. Through failures we gain insight to wonderful solution but first we must accept failure.
Throughout this world we feel this ripple of chaos destruction and uncertainty and I wonder how much of this is real? Between the mess in the governments and the economic situations that never seem to get better I am starting to think we need to just simply turn them off. What would happen if the human race lived from a place of respect and understanding and not from where we are now? What if we said you have had your chance now it is time to start from scratch? What if you were compensated for your compassion and not your greed? I know I am talking nonsense but I think it is possible.
In the United States I do not believe we are going in the right direction. We haven’t been for over a decade but today more so. There is a man in the people’ White House who feels making friends with the Muslim Brotherhood is a good idea and having this terrorist group to the White House is fine ( I wouldn’t have let them into the country but that’s me). He wears a mask and in time all will see how dangerous this man is. Look for truth and stop being spoon fed lies. These are perilous times and it is time to switch on the light and peer through the darkness. Never in all the years I have lived in this wonderful country have I felt such a low vibration coming from the people. We are the people and without us there is no country no government and no republic for anyone to darken. Allow the light of freedom which was put forth by a one of a kind amazing document to shine back into our lives.
All you need to do is shine a light. Believe in the goodness of the Creator the Universe and use your compassion love kindness truth and believe all things are possible. It is the energy we create together that change occurs. Humans have an incredible ability to be more. It is so much harder to be less. Help shine a light into darkness and help everyone be more.
