I thought it would be easy.
It is easy. You are the one who makes it hard by thinking that it is.
Oh, right. I keep forgetting. Thank You for reminding me.
Would you care to get on with it now?
I have a friend who plans to get a gun as protection against what is for now, only an imaginary enemy. That worries me because it says to me that fear is in play here, and fear is an enemy that cannot be annihilated with a gun. Fear draws what is feared closer unto itself.
This morning when I read the news that two million chickens were killed because processing plants have stopped production due to the lack of employees, my heart skipped a beat as I thought about the poor chickens, and the utter waste of their lives. Then came another headline about the possibility of food shortages. Yep—I agree that such a possibility certainly is a scary thought. It might be enough to make me think about going off in search of a gun myself.
But here’s the thing. I believe that we have greater protection than guns. I believe that there are hundreds of thousands of people walking around on our planet whose sole purpose for living is to carry a torch of light to help others to find their way through the dark. They are faceless, they are nameless, they have never met, yet they are joined in consciousness as one in service to humanity.
Fear gone unchecked creates wars, and the war against fear itself begins with each individual. It is not an easy battle, but for those who choose to engage in the fight, there are outstretched hands to help make it easier. It is a noble undertaking to choose love above fear. Reach out and someone will take your hand.
So, I ask my Self what we can do to help ourselves undo fear and replace it with visions of healing and rebirth. Self replies:
You can remember that there is a Divine Plan at work and everything happens for a reason.
You can remember that in the war between good and evil, good is winning, even though it may not seem evident at this moment.
You can know that no matter what, you will make it safely through whatever the future may bring.
You can use your imagination to create a vision of a new and beautiful world without the need for guns.
You can have faith that no matter how bleak things may look, you can rest in the knowledge that you will make your way across the bridge from despair to the safety of the new world that awaits you on the other side.
And that is all for today, dear one.
Huh. It appears that I have just outed my spiritual activist tendencies.
Yes. So it would appear. We’re happy about that, and may we say it is about time. The world can use more of them. We are also happy that you are now speaking your Truth.
Me too. Thank You!
