Old and New and Hope

So here we are at the end of one year and the beginning of a new year. Once the celebrations are over and the resolutions made and we get back to work or school, where do we as a spiritual collective community in human form go from here?

I have an answer, not THE answer, but one that seems as good as any other.

We continue to create what we call experience, good and bad, so that we can individually and collectively move toward “Oneness” with the Divine.

My conclusion is drawn from nature. Recently, I watched a swirling snow shower with each individual flake dancing with and within the wind currents and eventually settling into a collective ground blanket of crystalline white.

Once settled onto the earth all appeared to be one covering comprised of individual flakes linked together in a batten of white. The individual flakes reminded me of our souls, or spirits dancing with physical life. There are similarities between the two that help us understand the divinity within our consciences.

Each of us living on earth, all six billion plus of us, both enemy and friend alike and each snowflake are the individuations of the indivisible. We each are formed uniquely and meld into a oneness, yet we maintain and sustain our individuality.

Once we get past the ego of want and the frailty of human thought and we realize we are “one,” we will have peace.

I will hold that thought until in manifests as the reality of life.

To those of you who worry about Syrian refugees living near your neighborhood, yes, there are always the mavericks, but the majority are peaceful, worried, plain folk seeking a decent place and way to live. All of our ancestors sought the same things. 

As an example: A Syrian film-maker named Naji Jerf was shot dead in public in Turkey. He was 38 years old. Here is what he did to offend ISIS. He uploading video exposing the ISIS crimes in Aleppo, and Syria. He uploaded the video, with great risk, to You Tube.

All Syrians are not our enemy. Nothing will come to you that is not meant to be. It is a spiritual truth.

Here’s another fact. Thirteen journalists in Syria were killed in 2015. 69-journalists in all were killed in 2015. 28 of them were assassinated by Islamic extremists.

AND Trump wants to curtail the media, because he does not like what the media reports on him.

What does that tell you?

Goals and Age
© 2011, 2015 Rolland G. Smith

There comes a time in all our dreams
When we let go and sigh.
It could have been! We had the means
To try and try and try.

There must be something in our hopes
That lets us seek the goal.
We learned techniques and know the ropes
But then we loose control.

Perhaps it's age or other stuff_
That loosens a tight grip.
And we let go with no rebuff_
The goal we think we skip.

But I have learned throughout the years
When letting go, I find
The goal I lost then reappears
As new and redefined.

So what's the lesson in this thought
That we must now embrace
It is to never be distraught

When things seem out of place.
