Affirming the Divinity of Humanity–Gratitude 2.8.33

Guiding Thought

I fill my mind with the Light of the Truth of Love. What more is there? In the Light of the Truth, I am Free. What more is there? My consciousness expands in the Truth of Love, forever One, forever Joyful, forever in Peace.

Reflection / Contemplation 

(expletive warning: I use some language which I do not often use, below. Do not read this, if you are offended by “strong” language” though it is just one word, to make a point).

Greetings in Peace: May Peace Prevail on Earth!

It occurs to me, that people readily believe “history repeats itself”, that “there is nothing new under the sun”.

Maybe that’s because people are just still doing what they have always done, not changing, not growing, not learning.

When applied to our current state of the world, these phrases point to wars, violence, slavery and oppression, greed, conflict. And people shrug their shoulders, non-commitally, and say, “This is the world we live in. What can I do?”

Here’s an idea: let’s try Peace.

Let’s try justice, fairness, and equality.

Let’s try supporting and encouraging our children.

Let’s try taking care of the earth.

Let’s try taking care of each other.

Let’s tryEveryone can do these things. There is no excuse. 

History only repeats itself because we don’t try something different. It’s not like peace is a new concept. We just don’t try it. Collectively. It takes all of us to get on board the peace train if we are going to change History’s trajectory. We have a lot of undoing to do, in order for history to not repeat itself.

But we won’t know if we don’t try.

And Peace, justice, fairness, equality…these things are just the tip of the iceberg. Think where we can go when we have these things under our belts. When we devise social systems that encourage all people, when the earth is treated with respect, when we have such a reverence for all life that we cannot even imaging violence toward each other, any living thing, or the earth.

Fuck History repeating itself. Let’s do something different.

Let’s put all those grand ideas that have been around forever and make them the dominant ideas in our lives. Let’s apply those ideas to all of our relationships, to our work, to our families…and see if we can’t change the course of history. Let’s make the ideas of violence, conflict, rudeness, greed, avarice, disrespect the stuff of the past, the stuff that is so unacceptable people are socialized away from them.

Do you see from the title where I am going with this?

If we can make violence, conflict, rudeness, greed, avarice, disrespect a thing of the past, then we can realistically make the Divinity of Humanity the stuff of the future. That would be the logical next step, once we all treat each other and the earth with respect, reverence, and kindness.

Seven Steps:

  1. Letting All Thoughts Fade Away
  2. Extinguishing Self-Doubt
  3. Accomplishing Aspirations
  4. Thinking Light-Filled Thoughts
  5. Thanking the Earth & Environment
  6. Affirming our own Divinity
  7. Affirming the Divinity of Humanity

We make history. We can change history, by changing ourselves now.
