Proof of God?

Many people fret and fume that we don’t have objective proof that there is a God, or even that there was a Christ, or a Buddha, or any sign that the soul exists or a spiritual dimension is real.

This is by design, folks.

What physical evidence would YOU accept?  What physical evidence would anyone accept?  Would physical evidence gives us the sense of “knowing” which exists inside of us?  Whose expertise would you accept?  What, if anything, exists in the physical world that everyone agrees about in the same exact way?

Do we all agree that man went to the moon?  There is physical evidence – but not to all people.  Do we all agree that the Earth is round?  There is evidence – but still some say no.  Do we agree that there is evidence that proves that life needs water and air to be alive and nothing that doesn’t breathe or need water is alive?  Maybe on Earth that’s true – maybe – on Earth.  But what about viruses which don’t breathe or need water?  Who agrees on the evidence of climate change?

See.  The mental world – the logical world – the physical world is open to debate and each of us determines for ourselves the answer which we will accept.  So, physical evidence is subjective, because we all have feelings and thoughts about things – springing forth from our hearts.  These feelings and thoughts determine so much of what we choose.

We all have desires and hopes – things we want to be real or true.  These desires, feelings, hopes, etc come from within the heart – but not from the physical heart.  There we go again.

The beliefs and “knowing” of God, Spirit, the soul and the spiritual world – also are subjective only – simply because we cannot give one another our own feelings.  Our freewill to choose for ourselves how to feel and think is the freewill that everyone has to choose for themselves.

One reason why logical arguments don’t work is because the experience of God doesn’t come from the mind, but rather from the heart (not the physical heart) – where love exists.  There  is no physical proof or evidence that love exists, either.  No vial exists that contains the fluid of the love that a child has for their parent.  No bottle exists that contains the love that a mother has for her child, and on and on.  Even though some say that love is just a chemical in the brain, this too is a subjective belief based on a particular interpretation of chemical measurements.

The believe in God comes from our personal experience – which is helped by our inner experience we call “knowing”, which also is personal experience.  There is no way to share the same experiences of God, because they happen within a part of our consciousness – our heart – which we only subjectively admit exists.  The experiences of the Love of God come only because we love, also.  The experiences of a connection to God come only because our minds are open and our hearts are open.  At no time are these experiences measurable or provable that they are what we “know” them to be.

So, the belief in God, which exists in our heart, mind and soul can only happen within this one person – our self.  No one can have a relationship with God through anyone’s but their own heart.  We cannot have a relationship with God through another person’s experiences, mind or heart.

This is how it works, and will continue to work.  So, any “proof” of God may only barely come from how we treat another person – with loving kindness, patience, understanding, tolerance, mercy, forgiveness and the like.  “If God exists,” He/She lives in our hearts and actions through these qualities.  This is the only way we can share our experiences of God – by demonstrating Love.

The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 2 of 2

It’s not by violence. It’s not by hatred. It’s not by furthering selfish-interests. It’s not through yelling or adding to conflict. It’s not by condemning, judging, or criticizing others. It’s not through self-praise or self-righteousness or the opposite – by beating ourselves up or being unforgiving or unmerciful to ourselves.

It’s not through being a member of any particular nation, government or religion. It’s not by putting someone down or oppressing, or even forcing someone. And, it’s not by eliminating people through war or any other means.

We move humanity forward in this Earthly evolution of consciousness through the bringing forth of our patience, kindness, forgiveness, our long-suffering, compassion, understanding, love, mercy, our charity, expressing brotherhood and tolerance, and our meditation and prayer practices.

We move all of humanity forward via unselfishness – for all of humanity – hence why humanity does not move forward except through the Spirit of God being part of the motivating Spirit within people’s hearts and souls. Only through Spiritual efforts of bringing forth the Fruits of the Spirit will humanity as a whole continue to evolve in all ways that humanity can evolve.

This can and will take many lifetimes and many eons according to human time tables, each leading us further down our path. While it may seem a long time – even be our experience of a long time, in the framework of the Infinite Consciousness of God/Love, it is accomplished in a blink of an eye.

Yet, for us, today, it is an act of Infinite Compassion that we can come to realize that we can experience this evolution – which we can also call ‘healing’ – happening every day, through each moment which we contribute/help to bring about for those in need – which is all of us.  We can experience Love.  We can experience mercy.  We can experience joy, compassion, understanding, wisdom and in doing so, slowly become aware that we are experiencing the Consciousness of God – maybe not the “Infinite” part, but rather a part that we can absorb as a human.

As we are present with the current times, even witnessing this current day, the following additional principles can help as we walk the road we’re on.

– As difficult as it is to understand why this is – we are not here on the planet to save the Earth.  We are here on the planet, to help each other remember and reawaken to our spiritual nature and reality.  We can only do this by demonstrating the fruits of our spiritual reality within human realms and arenas – each aspect formed from love – oneness, unity, brotherhood, … forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect … faith, trust, knowing oneself, … Loving God above all else, and loving our neighbor as our self.  And yes, we can extend these fruits to the Earth, as well.

– Learn the lesson of “Asking for help”.  We’re not in this life to go through life alone or take care of ourselves alone.  We didn’t give birth to ourselves. We didn’t change our own diapers or feed ourselves at 1 year old, or clothe ourselves at 2 years old or determine to go to school at 5 or 6, or teach our selves math or reading or all about how to live our life.  As adults, we are so intertwined with the work of other people, that we can never honestly say that we’re self-sufficient since we didn’t build our own vehicles, build our own roads, build our own telephones, etc and etc. We live relying on the work and effort of the billions of people around the whole planet. All equipment and supplies reach us via the work of ourselves and other people. Even the most extreme living in the woods away from civilization, we are not the sole person influencing our staying alive.

God designed us to “need one another.” Learn the lesson of “Asking for help” – the demonstration of “our needing each another”.

– It is helpful if one of our prayers is always, “Lord, teach me the truth.

– Christ’s words to Peter are also for us – “You don’t concern yourself about that other person or the path they walk.  They are My concern.  You follow me.”  Forgiveness is letting go of insisting the other one learn and grow first – before we ever choose to learn and grow. The higher energy comes to heal the low energy when we let go of our **requiring** or **demanding** someone else change instead of ourselves in life or in that moment.  God has already willed that no soul shall perish, and this means all souls will be guided to re-find their healing path – but this is in God’s times and God’s ways, and not in human time frames or human-understood ways.

– During this time, we may be called upon to help others in ways we haven’t been helping before, or at a certain level of helping in which we haven’t gone before.  In the last days of Jesus, before His death, He worked to take full advantage of every moment left.  He sought to help as much as He could, and as many people as He could in the few days/weeks He had left.  Time was short, but so many sought His help, still.  His heart was dedicated to helping as many as He could, in all ways which the Father directed Him.

We are called also, now, especially in the days ahead, to help in ways which could stretch us to step up to another level.  It is for each of us to decide for ourselves, but we also, can ask God, “Here am I, Lord.  I’m ready. How can I help?”  Each of us is unique, and our own uniqueness brings us to be able to help in ways only we could help, because of our uniqueness.  The place we find ourselves, the skills we have, the feelings in our own heart – these are where God brings us — so that we can help in the place we find ourselves with the skills we have and the feelings in our heart.  “How can I, being the unique me, help in my unique way?”

– If we are seeing darkness manifest, feeling in despair or discouraged, then also look for the Light.  We are not abandoned, because even on the worst stormy days and nights, the sun/Son is still active above all, and is still actively continuing to work to break through clouds of darkness.  It is for us to shine our Light from our underside of the storms, also.

– God does not have all of us experience the same difficulties or life circumstances.  Even in the times ahead, there will be different difficulties and circumstances for different people.  Some people will go through great pain and suffering.  Some will go through minor difficulties.  Some will not go through problems at all.  This is also under God’s guidance, like the blind man Christ healed, saying, “This man was born blind for the Glory of God.”  His blindness was not from his own karma.  And Christ did not leave him in blindness.  Rather, with his asking, Christ healed him so others could believe in the healing which they witnessed happen that day, and in turn, then believe God is available to all who call upon Him in times of need.  God calls upon each of us to be someone whom God can work through for someone’s help – with each of us being on a different experiential path to help the different ways that are needed.

– We let the prayer, “Lord, help me be honest with myself.” be with us over and over through the day. We let it be a prayer that is in our hearts sincerely regardless of our judgment of it. Let the truth that it brings, come up from within, without judging what comes up within us to be accurate or worthy, or realistic. God is all things – even the ‘human-impossible’. God is the “All Possible”, the “Infinite Possible” and the limitless Imaginative Possible”, even while we don’t understand how this possibly could be.

– It is when we stand eye-to-eye, shoulder-to-shoulder, as equals, that we are united brothers and sisters, and not when we place ourselves above or below someone else.  Every one of us is an average, regular and normal spirit entity inside a physical body (of various species.)

*******

“There is no realm in which God’s Complete Consciousness is not present.  We swim inside, breathe inside, live inside the Infinite Consciousness of God, and all the while, with God’s complete and Infinite Awareness fully present – even of our individual self and all we go through.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

“God, thank you for your presence, guidance, help in my life, and love, even when I’m not aware of it.”

 

The Suffering We’re Seeing

Currently in this country, while government officials fight back and forth, while political pundits scream at each other, while Americans yell obscenities at one another across the Internet, social media and in each others presence, we see the suffering again which so many of us have seen before.  The treatment of those different from us, the treatment of those who seek our help, the treatment of those we see as “not us” is happening again, as it has before in the Earth.  This is a very real battle, but not of guns, swords and other weapons – rather a battle of what level of character and consciousness we will choose to determine how we treat one another.

It can be called government policy.  Government policy has done this throughout human history.  But, look deeper into the consciousness of each soul that lives in the Earth.  This isn’t just a “policy” of immigration, although this time it is manifesting as that issue in the current news. There is another perspective which this demonstrates.

It is many things manifesting at once.  Although it would be vehemently denied on the surface, it is ALSO a demonstration of an attitude of inequality – us vs them – and “Inferiority of ‘them’ vs the Superiority of ‘us’ “, which many still hold in their souls in the same way that we’ve witnessed in our world today and in our remembered and unremembered history.”

A Part of History Forgotten

From the beginning of souls entrance into this world, there have been some souls who were known as or perceived as angels or higher spiritual beings – who entered into the human path in the Earth – entering both before and during when other species of humans were present. They were not necessarily all Angels of Light which we think of today. Some of these spirits choosing a darker, lower-vibration, non-Love based path, held onto their “awareness of their own higher nature” even though they were on paths of losing the higher connection. Still, as human beings, this awareness of having been at the angel level of consciousness, became unconscious within them as they trapped themselves (like so many of us) through the human reincarnation process.

This unconscious perception became a belief that something innate to themselves makes them greater than others.  With the attitude of superiority still within them, and held onto, they consider themselves better or greater than other souls in the Earth. This attitude can be seen throughout many, many different cultures and many, many historical societies in the evolution of mankind.  I want to add that this quality is not present within them alone, but can be found within all of us to some greater or lesser extent – per our own choosing.

Because the battle of Light and Darkness began before the Earth existed, and continues now during the continued creation of the Physical Universe, this battle has been carried into the realm of the Earth. While the battle between the Light and Darkness has before been a battle among different spirits, we now have a process of reincarnation and karma within the Earth realm, which lawfully structures the evolutionary process of souls and spirits in the Earth.

These principles and laws bring in place the requirements that each soul and spirit must now face our own selves within our own consciousnesses in order to resolve the imbalances which heretofore had shown themselves externally, and which are now to be dealt with internally. We brought into this plane our imbalances and shortcomings (which we had before we entered) that we manifested in the physical Earth realm, and now we must heal these within the physical Earth realm – including by learning the development of the awareness of Oneness with all life, and the equality of all life – instead of the previous belief and manifestation of superiority/inferiority attitudes and actions.

We are at a point in the evolution of consciousness within the Earth whereby this battle is coming to the surface of awareness (although not known under the spiritual terms and conditions I mention here – which generally people would laugh at if they heard it called this).  Because of choices made to serve self alone, which is one cause of the consciousness of darkness, some souls have little within their own character to hinder their effort to mislead themselves and others.  (Some of us have willingly been walking the difficult road, indeed, back to balanced equality and truth.)  Therefore, they foster fear and paranoia beyond what is truthful. Other souls already have been misled to believe that which would be different than what they would otherwise learn from within their own hearts. These are misled to believe that Love would not be the path to take, but rather fear being the path to take.

Continued after the Side Notes …

************************************

Side Note: these examples in the previous paragraph are also examples of the imbalances yet to be worked out within a person’s own consciousness/soul. Within our own character, we potentially have the desire to hinder the truth due to our own fears and agendas. Within our own character, we potentially have the attitudes of our self being “a better person than that other person”. Within our own character, we potentially have the inclination to not listen to our hearts – the seat of our connection to God, and to not listen to the call of Love which comes from our connection to God.
Side Note: The state of consciousness of fear and paranoia exists in the 3rd Chakra. This is the Chakra of adrenaline and conflict – fight or flight – war – battle – overpowering others – oppressing others – exalting ourselves over others and the like. We can demonstrate the 3rd Chakra states of consciousness blindly or “asleep at the wheel” or instead we can seek to wake up, and to open our eyes, which leads us to learn and gain an understanding on our way to transformation with the 4th Chakra – seeking the lesson of awareness which is teaching us understanding that this is what it is like for human beings – the horror and torment – for humans to struggle within the 3rd Chakra – constant fear (as well as learn other awareness lessons related to the 3rd Chakra.) In this insight leading to transformation, thus we step out of the 3rd Chakra consciousness, work on patience, understanding and compassion, and even feeling long-suffering for those stuck in the 3rd Chakra, and recognize the statement Christ gave us when He said, “Perfect Love casteth out fear.” 1 John 4:18. This statement of Christ’s also shows the path of transformation out of the 3rd Chakra into the 4th.

**********************************

To Continue…

Now, although we are still participating in the battle between the Light and the Dark, we are able to face these battles, not against other people, but within our own selves – within our own consciousnesses, our own attitudes and our own character. It is in this work – on ourselves within ourselves – where we are able to win the victory over our own darkness. And as we do this – change our own character from letting go of acts of darkness to acts of the Light – that the presence of God comes into our physical realm at ever greater levels of influence and healing at every level of the physical realm. It is this ever greater presence of God which brings the higher levels of Light, raising vibrations of all physical realms, including the Earth, and bringing about guidance and insight into steps we can take or make available to bring transformation into our societies, organizations, governments, and the healing and balance of ever more souls who seek healing and balance.

It is ever the process of choosing to open to greater Light within ourselves which helps to eliminate the darkness around us. To manifest this Light then comes the challenges to manifesting of the qualities which the Light has within it – compassion to those who need it and those who have none – understanding to those who ask for it and to those who throw it away – courage to listen to the wisdom and guidance coming from God who lives in our hearts, the 4th Chakra – humility to recognize that God is within every life equally and available to every life equally, and that our own paradigm is always changing, always evolving, and always creating room for more learning and more love – willingness to pray and meditate for the presence of God to increase in this Earth and all physical realms – patience for things which do not come to us on our own personal time table serving our self rather than God’s timetable serving all of us in possibly different ways – letting go of judging others by realizing that we’re also letting go of judging our past selves and possibly our future selves – mercy for those who suffer and are tormented from living in fear like we all have done, as well – and forgiveness for those who ask for it, for those who need it, and for those who reject it – with all 3 of these being our self, as well as others.

We live in a world where love exists and can exist more.  As with the Spirit that is God Consciousness – Love exists when we choose to love. This means that God is only brought forth when we bring forth Love. God is only manifest when we manifest Love. While watching the suffering happening, we are not helpless if we ask God to be within our hearts in order to direct our actions which we can manifest in our world – for the purpose of demonstrating actions based on Love instead of fear.

The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 1 of 2

So many of us have come into this world for the times that are now coming upon us. These are the last of the days of this age of man. The new age of man will begin in 20 years – 2038. But, there’s some work to do before then, and … some difficult times are ahead for many all over this planet.  (If you remember 1998, that is how much time 20 years is.)

With the next 2 years, 2018-2020, we enter into a time when we will see ever increasing manifestations of low vibration/dark energy. (Not really ‘dark’ of itself but rather less and less of the Light.)  Much of this will be (1) physical harm, (2) economic hardship for more people, and  — (3) social aggression manifesting from the human choice to act this way due to the success of using aggression in the past eons of human life. (It is important to remember that aggression breeds aggression, hatred breeds hatred, war breeds war, etc.)

The times of “darkness” or “greater difficulties” will last 6 years more after that – 2020-2026, then there will be 2 more years of slowly climbing out of the low vibration/dark energy, 2026-2028.  This will then put us into a time of 10 years starting 2028 – of rebuilding, repairing, restoring, healing and by many more people – deciding to select/choose different ways to relate to each other in the world – different than the automatic ways of today – ways which are meant to select better ways to relate – which do not breed aggression, hatred, war, etc.

[Side note: dark energy is simply low vibration. Low vibration comes into existence as we move towards acts of hatred, bitterness, and vengeance in our heart and away from acts of Love, kindness, tolerance, patience, understanding – moving towards acts of  violence, both physical and social, and the other forms of self-centered acts/living (our self alone). Love and loving brings forth the higher vibrations and the Light. All the manifestations of love – kindness, compassion, and yes, long-suffering, bring us out of the low vibration and dark energy.]

[Side note: Long-suffering is the act of suffering through an event which one can do little about – seeking to persevere and suffer through the event and its ramifications.  More on this in a future posting.]

We are entering into a time to actively pursue and exercise our faith in God, faith in ourselves, and faith in others. These next 10 years mark the completion of bringing forth much karmic energy which we collectively set in motion from our past, which needs to be healed/faced/resolved/rebalanced/cleaned up before establishing the new age of Mankind.  The 10 years after that, not only will we be climbing higher out of the dark/low energy times, but also, we will be deciding which ideals to pursue as a human race in the new age which begins in 2038 – not in a “Pollyanna” way, but in ways that include the struggles and pain of holding onto and physically/socially manifesting higher ideals even in the face of the easiness of giving up.

We decide these ideals as individuals and not from a “group meeting.”  This means that if you or I set and practice higher ideals, this will spread.  If you or I don’t bother, this “not bothering” will spread, as well.  Don’t be surprised if these concepts are not readily recognizable or if anyone acknowledges it at all.  The process is not necessarily going to be conscious on a day-to-day level.  Remember, also, it is the beginning, not the “peak”.

It is for us a time now to practice what we’ve been preaching – to practice that which we’ve been learning. We are called to practice now many following principles:

– As simple as it might seem, taking life one day at a time in order to focus on the challenges which are in our laps today – on this one day.  While this may seem too simplistic on the surface, when practiced one can see very real benefits if practiced alongside the words of Christ to have faith in God to handle the worries of tomorrow while we focus on today.

– Accept that we will still have doubt come up within us, but in the face of that doubt, instead consciously choose to have faith in a Living, Active and Participating God.

– Lean not on our own beliefs and understandings which we’ve had throughout our life so far. Instead entertain an open mind – allowing for things we won’t immediately understand. With time, we will see how new information and awarenesses make sense and work in the world. Be ready to let go of some beliefs that don’t align with a larger paradigm – (this is a struggle indeed.)  Remember, Christ (going by every name humans use) understands many things that we do not.

– Many times in our day-to-day lives, we will find ourselves in ‘dead-ends’ where we get nowhere and accomplish nothing – whether it is from choices we’ve made or circumstances.  In these moments, we can pray, “Lord, do you have something else you want for me instead of this?” and “Whether yes or no, show me the way to move forward with this, through this, learn from this, gain from this, and then with moving into more than this.”

– The people in this Earth are desperately starving for kindness and compassion of all kinds. We can help with this by being awake and aware of expressing kindness and other mercies while we interact with people throughout the current day. Each act of kindness and mercy towards another person is a change towards a better Earth. Not just “random” acts of kindness, but deliberate acts of kindness.

– Great and grand gestures are for those who seek to praise themselves. God works through the quietness of one person helping one person.  Massive libraries beyond imagination could be filled with the works the Father/Christ/the Holy Spirit/Buddah/Allah/Jehovah has done to help people – quietly and known only within their own hearts, minds, bodies and souls.

– With God, our facing our difficulties, is possible – but without God, things start becoming noticeably not possible.

– Condemning and criticizing do not bring healing into the world.  But, condemning and criticizing do bring more pain and suffering into the world.  Instead trade up – patience, forgiveness, understanding, mercy – these things do bring healing into this world.  We do this one person at a time… and do it by choice, not by accident.

– Meditation and prayer – whether for 1 minute or 30 or an hour – each meditation and each prayer adds to change for individuals and the planet. The more prayer and meditation, the more higher energy comes into this world – both (1.) to heal the destined karmic energy coming to be manifested, which we all contributed to at some point in our past lives, and (2.) to strengthen the help, presence and Love of the Spirit of God in the planet for each life that exists in the planet.

In one of the next articles/postings, I will also post “What We Can Watch For or Expect”.

*******

“No one religion, no one book can hold All of the Light, All of Love, and All of Oneness – All of the Infinite Consciousness of God.  No finite “anything” in this 3-dimensional planet can completely hold the Infinite.  As the Human Race, we need the diversity that exists so as to allow greater and greater numbers to find a path leading to the top of the mountain that is the connection to the Infinite One God.

 

Christ and Buddha

Years ago, I had a dream. In this dream, I saw a wheel of light with a central rim, many spokes of light reaching outward, and then the outer tire encircling the whole. And I saw Christ. Christ showed me the meaning of these 3 parts. Christ was the central rim, all the different religions were the many spokes, and the outer tire was all the people who believed the various and different religions.

I don’t know if Christ is in dreams of others. I’d love to find out. I do know that this dream taught me the relevance and relationship that exists with the different religions and the central spirit of Love that religions try to teach to the people.

This Spirit which I call Christ, and many others call Christ has taught me that the main question and struggle is not about what name or organized religion we adhere to, but to the Spirit that exists available to all people and which resides in all religions that teach the One God.

Many will continue to war, saying “Our One God is the real One God and your One God is not the real One God.” In effect they’re saying, “Our way of believing is the real way to believe and your way of believing is not the real way to believe.”

I’ve written of this many times trying to say, “It’s not our beliefs, but what we do with them – using them to bring peace or using them to bring war – that matters most”. The dream did not show a  one spoke wheel. What wheel would work with only one spoke? The dream showed many spokes, because the tire spread all the way around – each spoke being that which connects that portion of the whole to the center.

Christ said many times, “I have followers that you don’t know about.” Does anyone think that He can’t or is not capable of being available to someone in another language, in another culture, with another name, under another symbol, in a different paradigm, in a different perspective, under a different image, wearing different clothes, in a different land, appearing as a different physical representation, unknown to “us”? Does anyone think He can’t speak to people in their own culture using their own language, presenting teachings that have One God of Love as the teachings’ central message, helping them start where they are, supporting who they are as the persons that they already are?

Does anyone think He can’t, in these different ways, give His message , “You’re already all you need to be, to be loved right now” ? Can He then help other religions to come about, carrying on the message – “Love one another” ?  The Bible describes the Pentecost, and says, “Each person understood the message in their own language and culture.”  Who among us thinks God cannot speak to each of us in our own way?

If anyone is wondering, look at how many religions speak the same message, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you“, or the message, “There is One God and all of us, everywhere are God’s Children.”

As one example, does anyone think it CAN’T be true, that the Christ Spirit and the Buddha Spirit are One and the same? We can know one name and person or we can know the other name and person, or we can know them both as One Spirit, and begin to learn the lessons of the one we choose or choose both, finding that when we learn the lessons of one, we have also been learning the same lessons of the other.

Program Information: 2018 – Looking Forward and Going Within

It doesn’t always benefit us to know what possible futures there are, if we don’t know that we can help bring a better future, change a harmful future, or don’t know the best and most effective ways to change the future.

Many times, people have asked me what to do when they get a psychic premonition of a possible problem, disaster or harmful future. My answer is always the same. These events come to us, so that we take steps to help heal, avoid or change the event. We cannot always take physical steps to change a harmful event, but we can ALWAYS take spiritual steps – through prayer as well as sending light through either meditation or other methods.  We may not be able to stop a harmful event completely, but our prayers come with energy to transform the event like a high vibration tuning fork affecting a low vibration tuning fork.

The Feb 10-11, 2018 weekend retreat will help us explore the paths set before us and help us practice the steps which can potentially change paths for the better for all, even if we have differing opinions of what is better.

I have psychically seen the future change many times through our spiritual work and effort. Many paths that had been forewarned about have been changed. Events which had been foreseen have been healed and dissolved through efforts before these events manifest.  In essence, the Light can dissipate the imminent dark clouds.

You are welcome to join us February 10-11, 2018, in learning more of what we can do to help ourselves, friends and families, and the world in which we live by sitting in a comfortable position, closing our eyes, going within, turning our minds to the heavens and raising God’s energy in the world through meditation, prayer and understanding.

Sexual Harassment?

We have a lot of news about sexual harassment and sexual predators, people – mostly well-known men – who are charged with misusing their positions of power or influence to harass others sexually.  Because it has been easier than usual to isolate these incidences and charge the people with these abuses, it has been very easy for many people to jump on the band-wagon to condemn and judge those who are singled-out.

The trouble is that the problem has a deeper core.  On the surface, we can easily imagine and see how these harassing incidences play out.  We can also understand how people can take advantage of others.  We have been doing this to each other for millennium after millennium.

But, in looking at this, I’m seeing a deeper issue and cause that is across the board – human related – rather than just being isolated incidences.  I’m seeing sexual harassment on the job as only a symptom of this deeper human-wide issue.

What I see is that the issue is not about sex and power.  It is about respect.  It is about whether we respect other people in other situations, in other circumstances of life, in other genders, other religions, other cultures, other races.  The question is put to us – do we respect others?

It’s easy to say, ‘well, respect has to be earned.’  No, it doesn’t.  No infant has ever been charged with ‘not deserving respect’ because they haven’t yet earned it.  No child has ever been labeled in school – “undeserving of anyone’s respect because they haven’t fulfilled anything deserving it”.  We don’t say at some point, ‘they’ve now grown up, and we can decide whether they’ve earned respect or not.’

As human beings, we don’t think about these things, but in the back of our minds, as family and friends of those infants and children, and without thinking, we hold some level of respect for them automatically.  That level is usually based on the amount of respect we generate in our own heart for human beings in general.

As souls, we are innately born into existence with respect from the Father/Mother God.  As souls, we recognize the reality of each of us having our own parcel of the Godhead within our own existence and spirit.  We are all sparks of the Infinite Consciousness of God, and from this Infinite Consciousness of God comes respect as well as the other Spirit Qualities of Love, Compassion, Mercy and others.  These qualities reside within us waiting for us to express them outwardly towards others.  By the very nature of our existence, we are children of God and innately are already deserving of respect, and called to give respect (as well as deserving of love, kindness, mercy, etc. – then called to give love, kindness, mercy, etc) by our very existence.  Yet, we don’t always automatically receive them from others or give them to others.

As human beings and spiritual beings, we are already deserving of Love, of mercy, of kindness, etc., … and of respect.  But, across the board of all human existence, we can see where we fall extremely short on giving that respect, or love or kindness, etc. to others.

When we actively work to respect another person – consciously – we treat that person so much better.  We work to not harm them.  We work to be kind, generous and merciful to them.  We work to forgive them, to support them and to offer them as much of the best of ourselves whenever they need it.

When we actively don’t respect someone, it becomes so easy for us to demonstrate that lack or small amount of respect through abuse of all kinds, harassment, insults, condemnation, judgmental criticism and every other means to demean them and look down on them.  It becomes easy for us to charge them with “no longer deserving respect’.  When we choose to not respect, it becomes easy to mistreat and abuse them.  When we have little or no respect for another person or group of people, it becomes easier for us to enslave and kill them.  (When we have little or no respect for others, subconsciously, we can have little or no respect for our self.)

We usually have in our individual minds and hearts that measuring stick which we hold up to them and say, ‘they don’t deserve respect because…’.  The reasons are vast and numerous.  They don’t deserve respect because of . . . their gender, their race, their religion, their lack of religion, their social status, their occupation, their age, their spiritual beliefs, their country of origin, their education, their location, their behaviors, their lack of behaviors, their affiliations, their past, their present, their future, their X, their Y, their Z and on and on.

Look across the board to all humans and look for some person or group who is giving respect to every human on the planet.  Not someone who is “saying” I give respect, but rather someone who is giving that respect without being asked.  Look far and wide, because when we are honest with ourselves, and respecting what honesty really is – and the level of honesty within ourselves – we will find all of ourselves wanting and failing at respecting all others.  Many women (and men) have been on the receiving end of sexual harassment. All human beings have been on the receiving end of being shown little or no respect.  All human beings have also been on the giving end of ‘little or no respect’ towards another individual or a group (and ourselves.)

For myself, I can think of only 1 man who, in His heart, mind, and soul respected each and every human alive – albeit all life.  And while He may have chastised and warned people against those who said one thing and did another, when it came to His end, He recognized the respect all deserve as children of God in His words of equality and humility -“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  In essence, saying “Father, they are deserving of forgiveness.  They are deserving of mercy.  They are deserving of the Love You have for them – even that Love through Me.  They are deserving of consideration, of patience, of encouragement, of all You have to give, … and they are deserving of respect… even though they don’t know it or take it on for themselves to bestow it to others.”  He saw then, and He sees today, all of us as His equals deserving all that God gave Him and all God has to give.

Every effort we make to change our own ‘lack of respect’ into ‘respecting’ moves us one step closer to creating a better world for all people.  It could help if we remember His words, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”, and take them on for ourselves to bring into the world towards others and to ourselves.  In a world one day filled to the brim with our respect for one another, (and other qualities), then we will have Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards All Men and Women (and all life).
