Harvest is here
If anyone is wondering whether this is the time or not… this is the time of harvest. And I’m not talking about vegetables.
This is the time of opening. This is the time of transformation. This is the time of waking up. This is the time of people searching. This is the time that minds and hearts seek what is better. It has been for some time, is now and will be more. Yes, this is the time of harvest.
Before the election, many times, I got the question, “Who’s going to win the election?” Always this was the wrong question to ask, because this was not the issue. The question wasn’t then and isn’t now, who will win or who is holding office (even though the election is over.) The question and issue is “Who will help us?”
It won’t be any politician that leads the world into a better way of living. Some will always be glad and some will always be sorry. Looking to politics and politicians for making life better will never produce what we seek. Hearts and minds holding the spirit of service to all life is what serves.
If we look to politicians to be the source of help, some of us will be helped in some particular way, and some of us won’t. Some who need and deserve help, won’t get it and some who don’t need or don’t deserve help will get it. This is what politics offers. This is always what politics has offered in the past and what it will offer in the future when there is a spirit of “Serve one’s own needs”.
Real help and true help comes from the Spiritual Source. If we go to the source of all good things, then we are beginning where we need to begin – by going to the One who has what is needed to be able to help and who is willing to help. It’s not just an axiom or a saying in the Bible.
God’s help reaches into the deepest parts of us, where the awareness of what real help is really needed to be applied in our life. God may not always “feed us a fish”, as much as He “teaches us how to fish”. God doesn’t necessarily supply superficial or material needs on the asking. Of course, neither does the government. But, the help that comes from the source of all good, applies to the secret needs inside our soul, that we have underneath our superficial and material needs – the deepest needs of our hearts, minds and souls.
Even with all I’ve written here, God does indeed work through people in politics, when the people in office have the spirit of service within their hearts and minds. And many do. Even some of the ones we voted against.
Obama seems to be becoming a neo-con nightmare – jailing truthtellers, bombing other countries indiscriminately and now possibly starting WW3 with his insistence on attacking Syria. Will this start another world war? Will the US back off last minute? Did the rebels use chemical weapons at all?
