What On Earth Is Going On?

Updated: Mar 22, 2020

In the recent days I have had some time to research and reflect. Went down some deep, dark avenues but came out hopeful.

I realized we are and have been at war for quite some time. This fight is essentially between spirituality and the materialists. Good versus evil.

If you are to at least some degree spiritually aware, you know what I’m talking about. You know that you’re not just a body and you’re not just here to gain possession of material things. You’re not an animal that can be trained and controlled. You are an immortal spiritual being, with godlike qualities and are capable of many incredible things.

I think we are currently seeing an increased awareness of more and more people who are realizing that they too are an immortal spiritual being. More people are connecting back to spirituality and beginning to think for themselves and not accepting everything that comes out of the mainstream media.

Mainstream media and fake news have gotten us, Americans, to a point where we have become divided. Divided by race, religion, gender, class and political affiliation. I see that divide and hatred at times, and can’t help but think, there is something wrong here. This is not the nature of a person, despite what you may have been made to think.

We have been divided and taught to fight each-other on reasons of gender or politics etc. Do you see that? We have been made to think that basically half of Americans (and others around the world) are wrong and evil and bad. It’s a sure plan for us to literally fight and destroy each other and ourselves in the process.

The thing is, we are not the enemy. I know for a fact that most of us actually want the same things. A world without insanity, without criminals and without war, where we the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights. We want freedom and family and love. Can you imagine a world like that?

I personally believe we are here to help one another to create such a world.

When I think of you reading this, I do not see your skin color, your gender, political views or anything else. I see just you, a spiritual sibling who shares existence on this planet with me and who wants the best for mankind.

The few truly evil criminals out there seek to strip this world of spirituality and control us for their own selfish reasons. They will not win. In my book, every story has a good outcome and good always wins against evil. The criminals eventually do themselves in and the good guys succeed.

We are many, they are few. Evil feeds on fear, hatred, suffering, panic, pain and the like. These kinds of energies help them continue to survive. But what they can’t stand and what destroys evil is hope, love, truth, positive visions, and the human spirit. And most of all, all of us united, with a strong spiritual bond.

What if each day we kept a vision of the future in our minds which is of a peaceful world, without war, criminals or insanity, full of people helping each-other heal, flourish and prosper?

What if we kept that vision in mind anytime we were worried, or fearful?

What if we decided that the good has won? And what if more and more of us did this every day?

I truly believe this would create the kind of spiritual power that is needed to win this fight between good and evil.

Are you in?

For today, I will leave you with this: consider that you’re an artist about to paint your future on a blank canvas. Then go ahead and imagine a beautiful one!

I see things hopefully, as order going in and confusion blowing off. I agree that more and more people are becoming aware that they are aware and since 1950 humanity is "boiling off" the veils of amnesia.

Beautifully written! I feel this time is Mother Earth's way of giving us a break from the material things and back to our connection with one remember love first.

I absolutely love your beautiful, bright spirit!
