I see the twinkle in your eye!  Yes, it IS ok, it IS safe to be happy and to have what you want – not bad & wrong, not selfish & self-centered – Safe & Right, God’s plan for us!! ALL of us! We were created in order for God to express and experience all of Its amazingness. ^_^  Placed within an infinite playgound filled with any & everything we could imagine.  And, in order to be able to distinguish all the good, there had to be a “background” of ‘not that’.  And we had to have the freedom to choose.  And, somehow we got lost and ‘distracted’ – our thinking and believing human wandered off into the dark, and the shadows became monsters and we kept running away from the Light – and here we are – we have turned around and are headed home!  Back to the Light and Love!!

I am grateful to know – I am a Child of God, I am God sent out to play, safe & free in God’s Infinite Playspace.

And so it is!!!

I believe there is only Good in the Universe. I believe the apparent lack of such, or apparent ‘bad, evil, wrong, etc’ is simply the result of limited perspective; ie: our inability and/or unwillingness to see ‘the bigger picture’ and/or expand our thinking.  A caterpillar stuck in the thinking and believing of a caterpillar would surely panic upon emerging from the cocoon and perhaps say “WTF, how can I even move with these big, heavy, wet things attached to my body?!”  Then, upon choosing to do what it can with what it has been ‘given’, decides to at least let those things dry so as to decrease the weight – and voila`.  ^_^

As for us humans – we are constantly being shown the results of our ‘false beliefs and wrong thinking’, but instead of taking a moment to see what good can come, we choose to make what is showing up out there ‘wrong’ and assume the role of victim.  If we were caterpillars, we would probably die of starvation because our ‘habitual and wrong’ thinking would have us remain victims and never even think of some way to make ‘good’ use of what we’d been given.

We as a Nation (and probably the World & species) have recently been given a very clear picture of what our limited, erroneous and ‘wrong’ thinking and believing has created.  We have for decades kept it hidden, or at least ignored.  Now we have been given an opportunity to heal – our ugly ‘under-belly’ has been exposed, to us and to the world.  The next four years could be very difficult and even painful for most of us.  I am choosing to do my best to take a step back and trust in the bigger picture – to know that you cannot heal what you cannot see and acknowledge. And to do my best, in whatever way I can, to be part of the solution.  To always choose Love and Gratitude.  To be grateful to be shown what needs to heal and to ask “what would Love do?”.  And, yes, probably easier said than done sometimes.  ^_-

First there is the issue of ‘hate and prejudice’ – which is really the ‘fear of other’, anything that isn’t the same as ‘me’ in every way.  And the belief that ‘we’ are RIGHT, which ‘rightness’ gives ‘us’ the right to kill anyone who won’t conform/agree with ‘me’.  And that belief has kept us locked in the cycle of wars and ‘skirmishes’ (from neighborhoods to nations)  for all of time till now.  Think on the words of the great MLK Jr!!!

And it isn’t just the hate and prejudice – there is also the greed and selfishness that has led to the few very rich and the many struggling to survive.  And the preoccupation with having more and more stuff.  The false thinking and believing in ‘things’ as the source of our happiness.             [ Spend 15 minutes watching tv! ]  And within that, the belief that there is not enough, that if ‘you’ get, it means that ‘I’ don’t.  And that it’s a ‘dog eat dog’ world – so if I am bigger and stronger than you, it’s ok for me to take from you forceably and/or illegally.

As one in my ‘elder years’, I don’t know if I will be here on Earth to see ‘what comes of this’.  I’m just doing my best to make it as ‘good’ as possible for my grandkids!  And I know they are already light years ahead of me!  ^_^
