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).

A First View of the Pacific Troubles

I apologize for not posting earlier.  Although, I’ve not looked psychically concerning this, for the first time, – the news is reporting and I’m psychically seeing POTENTIAL military conflict happening between N. K. and the U.S.  I’m also seeing that prayers can help to transform the animosity between both governments.  I see that it could be similar to the military efforts of 1990 with regards to the time of active conflict.  We can commit to help all involved, which is what so many of us were born into this world to do.  We can send prayers, send light, enter meditation sending our energy to all parties, practice our own patience, persistence, and participation.  We can also practice our faith in the One God’s presence and influence, when all those in authority on both sides choose battle instead of brotherhood.

I will add that while it appears that both governments want to go to war, I see people on both sides being mixed in the belief that it would help their own intentions.  Each side has people who support and oppose this action.

Why are there so many white supremacists…?

My question to you is, why are there so many white supremacists here in the USA, who profess to be “good” Christians, who continue to hate Jews and accuse us of conspiracy and part of a Synagogue of Satan? Like my parents before me, I am concerned for my children and grandchildren.  Wandering Jew

First, I want to suggest that the real issue isn’t about “white supremacists”.  Everyone who hates even a little contributes to the hatred in the world.  The real issue and therefore the real question is “Why are there so many human beings that hate?”

But, I can offer you two answers to your question as you ask it.

For all human beings – our human hatred of another does not start in a book, nor a religion or culture, nor a form of government, philosophy, organization, scientific discipline, mathematical equation, or any structure that humans have built and use.  Hatred also does not begin inside any bodily characteristic – i.e. from our DNA leading to body differences like skin color.  Hatred starts inside the hearts and minds of each of us separate individuals who of our own freewill chooses for himself and herself what to feel and think, including who and what to fear.  This has been the case for millennia after millennia of humankind’s existence on the Earth.  Both Love and Hate are choices we can make.

Within any of us who chooses hatred with any of it’s various manifesting forms, within ourselves, each of us individual human beings then chooses that identifying  marker outside of the heart, using that structure or belief system or etc., etc., to support, justify or rationalize acting on our human hatred.

We can use each human belief system, societal structure or anything that exists in the world as a tool for building humanity and our relationships or a tool for destroying humanity and our relationships. All of these items then get usurped for any person’s purposes and agendas which we can hold within our own hearts and minds.

Study the basic precepts of all the structures and systems that I’ve mentioned in the paragraphs above and you’ll discover true wisdom and opportunity to unite people lie within them all.  But, not all people choose (freewill again) to practice the wisdom or take the opportunities to unite when they take hold of the precepts.  As I’ve said, we humans can take hold of a particular belief system in order to support and justify our own feelings, beliefs and actions, as well.

***

The second reason is really the real reason.  It is this:  If we look as deep as possible within the souls, hearts and minds of every human individual, we would see such suffering and pain, that could cause any manner of insane acting out, in order to find something that would relieve one’s own tremendous suffering which can exist within anyone for millennia after millennia.  Were we willing to look at anyone’s suffering and pain (even our own,) it would bring a greater understanding to all of us, and give us good reason to disarm our own weapons aimed at someone else.

Imagine two people on opposite sides of every issue saying this same thing directed at the other, “I hate the suffering and pain which your viewpoint causes and adds to mine and others’ lives.”  In effect, this is what is happening.

Healing both sides is a slow process which comes from taking one step at a time, trying over and over working at it, but it is a process that we are involved in through every prayer we pray, every meditations, every act of mercy, every effort at forgiveness and more.  It is difficult but with God, all things are possible.  Because no law can ever stop our prayers, meditations, mercy, forgiveness, patience, loving kindness, compassion, brotherhood, courage, unity and more happening within our hearts, the process of healing for all of us will never be stopped.  God in all His forms that we believe in is committed to this, and will see it through to the completion for all life.  Our calling is not to try to be perfect but to practice each of these – mercy, understanding, loving kindness, etc – in the human experiences that we face.

The harvest is ready.  Who will become a worker?

Suicide

Sadness and grief permeate all facets of suicide. The human experiences of those who commit suicide and the human experiences of those who are left behind contain all manners of sorrow and pain before, during and after it is done. From the spiritual side of life, there is another consideration – an  opportunity to grow as a soul is lost.

Many humans will discuss the subject of suicide and condemn the act. Many say it’s not a problem at all.  Many say that it is an unforgivable sin. Many say that the person goes to hell for committing suicide. Many people say many things about what others do.

But, God does not take instruction from mankind. Like so many other things, our experience on the other side is very much based on our beliefs on this side. The standards we set for others are the standards we must be judged by – to some degree.  The point being that God determines what God’s perspective and stance on something is.

In the process of soul growth – the expansion and evolution of the consciousness of an individual spirit inhabiting or not inhabiting a body – we are afforded many opportunities to learn of our relationships to God, to each other and to ourselves. Suicide, like many other things of this type in life, (murder, drug addiction, etc) prevents or stops particular opportunities for the soul to face certain necessary challenges.  But in the eternity of Infinite time, something else is the case.

First, suicide, like so many other experiences, is a personal choice. How we treat others is a choice. How we treat God is a choice. How we treat ourselves is a choice.

When suicide is chosen and acted out, very little of their personal pain, challenges and lessons change for the soul. Their challenges don’t go away. Their suffering doesn’t go away. However, their connection to others on Earth who may have been helpful does go away for a while. Their opportunity to continue learning of the issues at hand does go away for a while.

Still, learning as a whole, does not go away. Starting over at some point in the future and facing the same challenges, doesn’t go away. While we will one day be required to clean up our exact same messes with regards to the people who had been in our physical life, the fact that “God loves a soul who is willing to start over” (Edgar Cayce) means that we are not abandoned in our soul growth after an act of suicide. It will just take longer.  It also means we don’t get to escape from learning a “particular lesson”.

As souls, we have much to learn. As human beings, we have much to learn in the extreme. One of those things to learn is that while many want it to be, suicide isn’t the escape people think it is. There is no escape from the soul work we have to do or the issues, circumstances, and challenges that we must eventually and one day will face.

As human beings we have many experiences that can lead us to think that suicide is the only door open to us. So many of us, if not all of us, must face this perspective that we have potentially within us. One thing to remember, (when the time comes for each of us to answer this question for ourselves,) is that we are not designed to go through life alone. We are designed to need one another.  The need for one another can be said to have been built into our “spiritual DNA” – the very energy/essence of our existence.  It is truth that we are all in this boat together. We are teammates. We can make it through these experiences by connecting to our teammates, relying on others to help us, and one day in turn, maybe us helping some other teammate.

Another thing to remember, is that Christ can truly be thought of as one of our best friends. (We will always have this one best friend.)  When we face the challenges that we will face, we can reach out to our best friends – the friend who is most able to understand and have room for us in their heart.  We can also reach out to any teammates who are “in the boat rowing along side of us (any human whom we find to reach out to.)

While we may argue this point, it really is true – God designed us to need one another. Problems arise when we try to ignore this need.  Problems can be healed and resolved when we understand and act on this need.

Praying for a Miracle

Miracles are real. Miracles happen. I’ve seen them. I’ve experienced them. I’ve prayed for them specifically, and I’ve had them happen when I asked for them.

I’m not anyone special that I would be favored by God more, or loved more or be considered more worthy. God sees everyone equally, always. God has everyone equally in His/Her heart. Likewise, Christ has everyone equally in His heart.

I don’t know if I help make miracles happen besides praying and asking for them, but I do challenge myself to have faith, constantly. I consider this important, because if I’m asking God for something, then the challenge I give myself is to pray and have faith in Christ – that which He asks – not pretend or as a trick to trade something – which we all try to bargain our way into God’s good stead.

No, the challenge I give myself is to actually have faith that all things are possible with God. I challenge myself to turn my unbeliefs into beliefs – have faith in Christ Jesus – and not just in the easy times, but in the difficult times. This challenges my thinking, challenges my doubts, challenges my heart and all the thoughts and feelings within me. I have to choose to change and then change. I have to choose to not doubt, as much as I have to choose to have faith. I have to choose to not disbelieve as much as I have to choose to believe.

It is a question for me to ask, do I give Christ credit for being Christ? Do I give God credit for being God? Do I recognize that Christ is capable of all the Bible tells me and even more? For me, I am challenged to believe what the centurion said to Jesus – “If you say the word, I know it will be done.” Then open the mind, allow for all possibilities, believe it and have faith.

Christ, Himself, told us we must also pray, and in some of these prayers, I ask specifically for “A Miracle.” In the specific times that I’m thinking of as I write this, the receiving of the miracles were almost instantaneous. I say almost because one time a whole 10 seconds had to pass after I asked for a miracle, (after 3 hours of praying and working on my faith, then trusting that God knows better than I what needs to occur, and accepting that Christ is the Father’s “right hand”.)

Practicing all of this is a lesson in “learning”, also. We are called to know ourselves as spirit beings experiencing physical bodies. We are called to know ourselves as a part of and one with the Infinite Consciousness and Spirit of God. Growing into these are not automatic, but rather done through effort, practice, open-minded learning and choosing of our own freewill to move into this awareness. Learning about miracles is one of these lessons. In fact, there’s a whole course in miracles. The books are called, “A Course in Miracles”, if anyone is interested.

Miracles are real. Miracles happen. And never hesitate to ask God for a miracle.  After you ask, then you get to choose whether to be open-minded to learn or not.

——-

There are online prayer lines where prayers people ask for are listed. These are sincere prayers being asked for. One can add their own and pray for the others. When I pray for the others, I can sense the real need and the real calling to prayer.

Coming to Our Senses?

I was thinking about your comment that 9/11 is a lessening of what would have occurred if it weren’t for prayers. However, millions of people died because of 9/11 – in Iraq, in Libya, in Syria. Our rights have been severely restricted and people have been tortured and had their lives taken away from them by imprisonment. It appears to me that there was no abatement in suffering and that 9/11 and its aftermath will create more before this madness ends.

Is an economic collapse necessary to bring people to their senses? Is it necessary to defund and dismantle the war machine? Will the US finally look inward when things come crashing down?  Lisa H

You are right.  Millions of people died because of the 9/11 attack. You’re also right that there is no abatement in the existence and presence of suffering. But, all I say now is recorded in the Akashic Records available for all to investigate. That future of which we were able to heal so much, the future which included the prayers and meditations of millions of people bringing forth change, the future which these millions were able to raise the vibrations of this whole planet through spiritual effort – is a future which had been helped to be avoided where billions of people would have died instead. There would have been suffering for all humanity for a whole generation and longer still.

The planet itself was slated to undergo cataclysmic destruction from energy and consciousness patterns destined to manifest.  Through the great effort of so many, who brought forth the love, mercy, compassion, cooperation and all manners of other help, so much has been healed.  But, so much has not yet been healed, also.

What we see today is still great suffering.  Yet, there is a great difference, because of what has been healed and therefore avoided because of the healing. Are there still serious problems? Absolutely.  “Is an economic collapse necessary to bring people to their senses?” An economic collapse would NOT bring people to their senses.

Are you asking what would bring people to their senses? My answer is not the answer you might look for. You’re asking for an external event to trigger people looking inwardly. External events don’t bring about civilizations to look inward. Internal events bring about individuals looking inwardly. Internal events only happen when individuals of their own freewill choose to be open in their hearts and minds to have internal events happen.  So, what would bring people to their senses?

Patience. A quality which so many deem so insignificant and unworthy that it is ignored and dismissed without so much as a second thought. Patience is a quality which people feel is so unimportant that few seek to develop this quality, (and many choose not to at all.)  Yet, in patience we will know our very souls – because of walking our path to go within to seek our own souls. And in knowing our souls, we will recognized our innate inner spiritual nature, knowing then that we are eternal spiritual beings with Infinity within us and at our fingertips, not fleshly beings that have to fight each other for every scrap of physical food.

This Earth is not our spiritual home.  We come from the awareness of our spirit nature, and in time, we will return to the awareness of our spirit nature.  Christ said to all of us, “I go to prepare a place for you.”  This is the place in consciousness where we are once again aware of the truth and existence of being spirit.  We are spirit beings, born in the spirit image of God.  Because Jesus Christ has completed the spiritualization of the Earth, this transformation of consciousness – from believing we are flesh beings to being aware that we are spirit beings – is guaranteed, but not in a single lifetime.  Neither God, nor Christ, nor so many other souls helping will give up on any soul.  God has willed that no soul shall perish – forever destined to believe they are a fleshly, separated being.  And so, the path is slow, so that no soul is left behind – not a single soul.

Hence, patience with one another and patience with ourselves is to be learned.  And with God, learning patience is possible.

Faith in God, Faith in Ourselves, Faith in Others.

If we’re not working on any particular one of these three areas of faith, then we’re trying to sit on a stool with 1 or 2 of it’s 3 legs missing.

Faith in God, we know.  We’ve been taught this, and we try to practice it.  We’re familiar with what it calls for.  This has been with us for a long time growing up and as adults.  It is what is most pointed to when people talk of faith at all.

Faith in ourselves, is a little harder, because it’s easy to forget this.  When we’re struggling with life’s slings and arrows, it’s easy to get lost on our own woes and sorrows.  When we’re overwhelmed with the serious and bulldozing experiences which can come forth in life, we may call upon God and have faith in Him/Her, but it’s easy to forget to have faith also in ourselves to make it through even these desperate challenges.

But, faith in others???

Here is where we stumble and fall over and over, again.  So, many of us think of others and think the worst.  We see the worst in some people and think the worst in all, sometimes.  It is so easy, and it seems automatic, like a recorded response that plays over and over in our minds and hearts triggered by … whatever triggers the response.

Faith in others is one of the more challenging “faiths” to have.  We can easily become cynical, bitter, resentful and angry when we choose to not even try to have faith in others.

Yet, we may have faith in everyone who thinks and feels exactly like we do – everyone who believes exactly like we believe.  However, we may give up the struggle to have faith in any of the many human beings who feel, think and believe differently.

It is so easy to have faith in someone who believes exactly like we do – even though there is no one in existence who believes actually EXACTLY like we do.  It is so easy to have faith in anyone who speaks the same words, espousing the same views, demonstrating the same feelings and thoughts, as we ourselves – even though there is no one in existence who PERFECTLY matches our own views, words, beliefs, feelings and thoughts.

It takes a decision within ourselves to have faith in others, and what can help is to have faith in their higher self – that part of ourselves that is still connected to the Infinite Universal Divine Consciousness, and sees with the eyes of this Divine Perspective.

We have a hard time living our human lives from this Divine Perspective place in our consciousness.  But, the choice still exists for us to make.  In addition, many people seem far, far, away from this place in our consciousness what with the horrors people bring forth in our world.

All things are possible with God, and it is possible to have faith in others when we remember that, like God, who has given them eternity, we, too, can give them eternity to work things out within themselves – working out the cynicism, bitterness, resentment. hatred and more.  1 million, 2 million, 5 million years is not that long for working out inner issues – to change our hearts and minds.  Yet, eternity (which is even more than 5 million years) is what God gives us, and at no time does God abandon us to work on ourselves without Him/Her in all this eternity.  Infinite Love is like that.

We can look at this one life and think we’re doomed, or they’re doomed or he’s bad or she’s wrong or this or that or the like.  But, God looks at us through the eyes of Eternity and in that Eternity, God can do all things – including bring us back into an awareness and Oneness with Infinite Love – the Love that permeates Infinity and connects us to the Love that exists inside Eternity.

With Faith in God, we can better practice faith in ourselves, and with both of these, we can learn how to have faith in others – knowing there is something within each soul that is connected to God and will never be disconnected – remaining connected for Eternity.
