The sky is not falling. The roof is not caving in. No, we are just under construction. We are tearing down for the purpose of rebuilding. Well, that’s the way the horoscopes usually say it. . . .
Today I feel this overwhelming urge to say, “Hey—as long as we are rebuilding, let’s have a say in the design of the new future. Let’s use our collective intelligence, passion, vision, and imagination to recreate the world in a way that we would like to have it be. Let’s use our minds in a positive way rather than focusing on the fearful thoughts that bring the risk of turning themselves into self-fulfilling prophecies.
When I was an outside sales representative in Washington, D.C. years ago, I encountered an old man on the same street corner every day wearing a helmet and holding a gigantic placard with tiny writing. The gist was that the atmosphere was filled with negative radio waves and that his helmet was protection against the toxic energy emitted by it. Everyone should be wearing helmets, he said. Well, obviously, the man was a little off. Or maybe a not.
But here’s the thing. His helmet and rambling placard were the catalyst that jolted me into a new awareness. What if there was some truth to his ramblings? What if I was walking through life wearing a broadcast helmet that blared my every thought out into the universe and everyone in it? What if every friend, loved one, and passing stranger heard every ugly, spontaneous thought that popped into my head? Oh egad! Just think of the ramifications! Maybe I should wear a helmet to protect myself from my own thoughts, as well as those from others.
There is no hiding from our thoughts and much as we might like to think so, we cannot hide our thoughts from the universe. On some level, we are broadcasting our thoughts for all to hear, and there is an always an impact, like ripples in a pond. The most important thoughts that have the greatest impact of all are those that we have about ourselves.
Ah but I digress. Every thought has creativity and power within it, and every though has meaning. We can use that powerful energy as a construction tool to create whatever we want, but first we must create a blueprint and build upon a solid foundation of love rather than a shoddy, haphazard foundation of fear.
Fortunately for us, there is so much help available to us as we seek to find our way through the debris left in the wake of so much destruction. Just as we are locked within our homes during this universal crisis, the answers we seek are locked within ourselves waiting to be set free. Seek and ye shall find.
We are standing together at the crossroad of the past and future, and together we can use our God given power and ability to help build the bridge that will get us safely across. We are under construction, following the blueprint of a Divine Plan. Trust. Have faith. All is well.
