THIS IS ME! Climbing in the Cathedral Provincial Park, in BC, Canada. Do you see the beautiful view through the crevasse of the rock walls? But this place was scary, and I didn’t know which way to go.

Sometimes life gets messy and we don’t know what to THINK. We’re between a rock and a hard place and we get stuck… Scared to push forward, afraid to back down…

Yes, the world is in a chaotic mess. “Why doesn’t God come down and do something about it?” you ask. “If God is love, how come there’s such cruelty in the world?”
I’m weary of hearing that God can’t be real because of all these serious problems in our world. Like we didn’t do anything at all to cause these problems? Like war, racial hatred, violence, crime, poverty just happen while we’re innocently living our lives. Even if God waved a magic wand and fixed everything perfectly, we’d be sure to take it and mess it up again.

It’s almost like there’s an intense greediness that’s infiltrating the very structure of our society. Like tuning into the one radio signal with a hedonistic focus on instant gratification. “Rip off who you can, just don’t get caught.” Why does being an arrogant bad-ass appeal to anybody? What is behind all that?

Light:DarkPerhaps there is something pulling our strings. Maybe there’s an invisible/off-earth Illuminati out to get us, trying to destroy us, trying to take over our planet? OK, OK, you say. Don’t get wound up on crazy stuff.

Yet, there are always opposites that we have to choose between. There’s light, there’s dark. There’s pain there’s sorrow. Good/bad, up/down, black/white, love/hate, give/take, right/wrong. What would be the opposite of God?  Maybe God’s not the only superpower behind the scenes!

Ifchoose-your-own-path we can personify the presence of love then it is God. If we can personify an invisible destructive force of darkness, then it would be called Satan. Our unwillingness to acknowledge the existence of an evil force gives that entity an insidious, powerful advantage over us.

Actually, to believe in a devil who’s against our spiritual growth would make a lot of sense for five reasons!

  1. We’d have someone to blame besides God for the problems in the world.

  2. God wouldn’t be responsible for any of the bad things that happen and could be only a God of love.

  3. We wouldn’t have to entirely blame ourselves.

  4. Verses in the Bible that talk about fallen angels from heaven (outer space) could be taken literally.

  5. But best of all: All of humanity would have a common enemy to fight against!

"Do you ever wonder what makes horror movies and dark fiction so appealing to some people? We have been manipulated to create the scariest, most terrifying horror scripts because demons want us to agree with them that we are puny and powerless and things are horrible. They want us to exalt and fear them in our minds...And when we buy into their lies and negative perceptions, we honour them by becoming fearful. Fear, in fact, is their best weapon against us. Fear is actually giving allegiance to Satan."

Up-Against-a-Brick-WallSometimes reality sucks. It slams you up against a brick wall and you’re stuck there. Life as you dreamed it seems far, far away. Should you just settle for what is?

If we’re not behind our own steering wheel on the road of life, is it any wonder we don’t enjoy the journey?

I spent many years coaching teenagers in life skills. They were in transition from being children to becoming young adults, and their biggest hurdle was accepting accountability for their actions.

Many of them had very desperate childhoods. Learning to become personally responsible for their lives regardless of the past was often a terrific struggle. Invariably they blamed their teachers, their parents, and anyone in authority for the situations they were in. One student stated the epitome of his life philosophy by exclaiming, “But I didn’t ask to be born!” How sad that he couldn’t conceive of life as a gift and saw no purpose in living it….

Often we lose track of the awesome value of the one-time ticket we have been given to play the Game of Life. If we don’t put a value on the game…then there’s no point in playing. We aren’t going to win anything.  And who can we blame for that? 

STEP ONE: STOP COMPLAINING

Complaining and blaming others is simply a verbal acknowledgment that we are victims. We create our own victim mentality. Actually, when we feel sorry for ourselves, our thoughts and actions activate the law of faith in an unfavourable direction. We say negative, harmful words of doubt, and these heartfelt words, by the very definition of faith, create the wrong things for us. Pessimistic self-talk can result in very destructive patterns… 

Whenever we feel like victims in our lives, we blame whomever and whatever we can. But really, aren’t we the only ones who have the power to make changes in our lives?

It may come as a surprise, but God is not impressed with our suffering as victims. We do not earn any respect for our discomfort. Think about this: If we have accepted Spirit to live inside of us, would this celestial entity enjoy living with the pain, sorrow, and misery to which we so often subject our physical bodies when it isn’t necessary?*

God has promised many times that he will never leave us:

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
 What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:3:5-6 NIV Bible

STEP TWO: DON’T BUY THE LIE

Don’t buy the lie that you are helpless because – you are not alone in this. Don’t ever be a victim; because there is absolutely no power in that belief system. Even if you can’t change your circumstances right away, you CAN change your beliefs. Your thoughts are your own. When you consciously make them positive you’ll see the small steps you CAN take to rise up out of your pit of despair. The momentum will have begun and soon your faith will fuel the car you drive down the road and then, life becomes a grand adventure!

One_in_a_Crowd_by_wooxscissorhands

We are so lucky to live in a world of modern conveniences and multi-choices of entertainment. We are living a fine life…but what are we living for?

That’s the big question. We have homes, enough to eat, and some leisure time to enjoy life, so why aren’t we satisfied? We believe in a God and hope this Source of higher intelligence knows what’s being played out on our planet. But what are we supposed to do in the meantime? Our world is such a mess…and we are just one in a crowd of billions of people.

One_in_a_crowd_and_paranoid____by_gonzonlI sit looking out of an upstairs window and view my world below. These thoughts drift through my mind as a ribbon of morning cloud passes gently over the landscape. In the early morning quiet time, I sometimes play a game to “hear” what God wants to communicate to me. Randomly, I open up a small book of the Bible to see what shows up on the page. Today the words are modern and almost audible to me:

 

“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand."  Matthew 5:13-15 The Message Bible

one-in-a-crowd-copySo we Christians ought to stand out in a crowd. We are supposed to be bold with our beliefs. Our values will shine out so that people notice. What’s a bowl of popcorn without salt?

No matter where we live, or what culture we live in, we want to stand up for higher principles and get noticed. We are the salt seasoning on a bland menu. We are God-colour! We’re supposed to shine God on the landscape of our realities.

By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:16 NIV Bible
How do you stand out in a crowd? Let me know what YOU DO when the spotlight Is on you!

What does this guy have that most of us don’t?

He’s not privileged, he’s not wealthy, and he doesn’t even do great things. Why then does this video clip melt our hearts?

It’s because this man responds from a different operating system. Oh, it’s not that it’s been filmed in Thailand, for it could have been filmed in any part of the world. This person is aligned with ancient principles of karma. His simple actions come from following the Golden Rule. He’s got an inner connection to something far greater than himself and the results of his actions almost seem magical. What is he plugged into?

Let’s call it a connection to Spirit – that invisible source of higher intelligence that draws us onward to become better human beings.

I think the God Source is real. Like a pulsating frequency, it just waits for us to desire some moral GPS directions and then to tune into it!

To quote from my book, The Celestial Proposal, Chapter 13, “Welcome to the Kingdom,” page 195:

What if celestial Spirit is a supernatural software program by which we can access spiritual properties? What if we authorize its download when we request Spirit to be installed in our minds? We already have built-in connection ports because we have been created in the likeness of the Great Ones!

However, there is a requirement: we must defragment our hard drives to free up space for the installation of this new software for human beings. Downloading this updated, powerful version can override the current operating system by interfacing directly with a celestial network…Spinoff effects of human joy and happiness are the result.

We as humans live on just a small spec in the universe among billions of galaxies. Yet we have evolved to a point where human beings are the most important endangered species on our planet…because now in our twenty-first century we are capable of obliterating ourselves.
 
One button pushed, another one to retaliate, and the world as we know it – will be gone.
 
It seems obvious to me (and probably to you too) that there will be no peace on our planet until all people can agree on a set of universal standards for human conduct. Shared simple basic values in life.
 
Our justice system in the western world bases itself on the Judeo-Christian moral code of conduct first presented to us in the biblical Ten Commandments. But what if you are Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, agnostic or simple an atheist? Your value system might be quite different. Are there any higher moral principles that we can all agree on outside of religious doctrine? And if there are, how can we determine what they are?

To explore this we have to broaden our perspective. Just like when we are using Google Earth, we can zoom down from high above the planet and with eagle eye precision, zero in on the exact location where our own life is taking place. The physical details of the very houses we live in appear with amazing clarity! And that little spec of reality makes up a very small part of the town we live in, then the state or province we live in, the country, the continent and even the planet we live on. No matter what moral code we believe in, we are part of the whole.

Goggle earth fighting coupleIf there’s a God Being surely God is grand enough to “Google Earth” too, and see all our problems. From a celestial perspective, God would also see one human race with many diverse philosophies and religions, yet he could zoom down further to see the exact moral fibre of each of our lives.

Try it here! On Google Earth, that spec of humanity that I am living in touches those who I connect with. My yard runs into the neighbour’s yard so my actions may influence the guy next door, which might impact my neighbourhood, which may even make the news in our state or province. The action I choose could influence lots of other people and cause laws to be changed that affect the whole nation. The country we live in then takes on a personality and interacts with other countries. Now we are zooming out enough to see the very bullies on the playground of our planet.

Does it really matter what we do in our own spec of reality on this planet? Maybe I lie about things because it’s easier, I steal because I’m poor, or I assault others because they ticked me off. It’s so easy to defend our actions with a personal line of reasoning. Sure, we can do it, but is it right?

Values to ResultsTake that intended action you have in your mind, zoom out to a celestial perspective and ask yourself: “What would happen if everyone did this same thing?”

For example, if I run a red light, what would happen if everyone ran red lights? If I steal from others what would happen if everybody stole all the time? If whole nations stole wealth from other nations? If I manipulate and bully people to get what I want, what if everyone were bullies? What if your country is a bully on the world’s playground?  If all the countries in the world went to war…would we survive?

In other words, if something’s wrong for everyone to do, then it’s wrong for you and me to do. That is a universal, higher moral principle!

I have been in and out of love many times in my life. Come on! So have you if you’re over 30, even if you’ve been married for 40 years to the same person! Love comes on so strong, but then it takes a lot of effort to keep that kite flying in the winds of change…

Why are people so uncaring sometimes and others can shower us with kindness later? It’s because:  HOW WE ACT GETS REFLECTED BACK!

(Click to tweet)

If I could be as pure and serene as this wilderness mountain, my life would manifest this beautiful too! When we’re kind and caring that is what reflects back into our reality. But when were selfish and harsh that’s mirrored back at us too.

Around midnight one foggy evening, I tried to connect with the presence of God, as I stood on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Columbia River far below. Clouds covered the gorge and leveled themselves so that it seemed as though I could step out and walk upon the surface. My life also lay before me like a vast journey of undulating ups-and-downs, some joys yes, but lots of heartaches. Did I even want to play the game?
