If You Want to Heal the World, Quit Being the Poison! (New Thought Sunday Message 8/15/10)

Are you a benefit or a detriment?

Have you been bitching (loudly or quietly) that the world is a mess--socially, politically, personally? Far be it from me to tell you what to do. But there are some ways to help that are much better than complaining. (Don't get me wrong; sometimes complaining is the best method!) And I have found the following practices work pretty well. My life experience is much different--and better--since I've implemented these little tips. Maybe they'll serve you, too?
  • Always seek and tell the truth at the deepest levels of your being. Deep, personal truth is always running your life. You might as well know what it is. And if it's sour, sweeten it. But you have to know what your real truth is. It can be a bit scary. What you really, really, really believe deep down is not necessarily what you've been leading yourself to think it is. It will show itself to you if you ask, open, and receive it. Be prepared for some gunk.
  • Commit to continual, life-long learning. All systems need new info and must evolve--or they wither. Living a hundred years means nothing if you're just taking up space. 
  • Bring everything you are--good, bad, indifferent--into full partnership with the world. You will create synchronicity. That means you will find it difficult to feel separate from the rest of us on any level. And once you feel connected, the healing can begin--for you, for us.
As simple as these tips sound, they take effort. They may create a little discomfort. But forget about comfort. That's just the voice of the devil trying to keep you stuck where you are. 

My mother used to say, "I don't really know why I'm here but I intend to make the best of it anyway." Makes sense to me. While you're trying to "find" yourself, jump into the fray. Otherwise, the world may not be here when you wake up. 

"A person ceases to be a beginner and becomes a master when he has learned that he is going to be a beginner all his life." (Paraphrased from Robin G. Collingwood, English philosopher, 1889-1943)

P.S. Just to throw in a little politics, please make good choices when it comes to what you eat, what you wear, and how you get around. The world depends on those choices. You are a key!
