Beginnings always have an expectation.
What happens next, where do we go from here?
There is an old saying that says we attract to us what we fear. If it's true, then the antidote must be true too. Within each of us is an immense creative positive energy that can find a way out of the fear, the sadness, the despair, and the negative conditions for which we often blame others.
Perhaps it is time we take responsibility as creators. Not only the creator of things and conditions, but also of attitudes and personal prejudices.
We often constrict our creative self by limiting the power of our thoughts. We often inadvertently deny those in need by believing personal security is having more. Sometimes we delude those we say we love by only loving ourselves through them and not honoring their choices and sacred self. Sometimes we do a lot of stupid things that have unintended consequences.
It is a choice, but we can listen to the life force of our hearts. It lets us hear the trees, the oceans, the plants and animals when they speak to us with their beauty. It lets us acknowledge the equal sacred pursuit of life from those whose culture, language, beliefs and color are different from us. It even helps us to forgive.
That life force is Divine love. It is embedded in our spirits from the moment of our being. It can never be lost, it needs only to be remembered. It translates into common respect, courtesy, compassion and kindness and manifests into a willingness to be of service.
It has never been tried on a mass scale.
It seems to me we have nothing to lose. Maybe 2014 will be the year.
