A world of lack from a place of unbalanced focus and choices.
Many people on earth are seeking wealth and monetary abundance. Most believing that monetary wealth will bring them joy, happiness, power and control over their life and in the world. While some acquire the monetary wealth, they often find no matter how much they have it is never enough to fill the empty space within them. So they continue to quest to rise to the ultimate power and control over all around them, and perhaps even the world. They may be seeking the adoration of people because of their status. A few may find the happiness they seek for possessions and adoration is what they want, but they may still feel that empty spot inside, screaming to be filled. There are ones who are spiritually balanced with material wealth, for they have learned the truth and wisdom of the Divine, which are love, balance, harmony, compassion, truth, charity, faith and wisdom.
Many work for the wealthy people who own businesses. They are hoping to make enough to have all the necessities and luxuries of life, so that they no longer need to worry. Again some will find there is never enough and a few may find their desire for no financial worries, but they may still find an empty spot within screaming to be filled.
Finally there are those who will live in poverty, homelessness, famine and despair. Never having enough to even feel safe or full. They are the endangered ones always on the brink of death. Like the animal species threatened by society.
Why is there such inequality in the world?
How can a loving Creator allow this to happen you may ask?
Through the beautiful soul called Gaia, who embodies Earth, our Creator brought forth a magical paradise, a jewel of abundance and diversity upon which we decided to embody and experience its gifts. This planet can provide all that is needed for all life upon earth when ones live in balance, harmony, caring, and unity with each other, nature and all life on the planet.
We experience lack because some out of a fear of lack, take more than their share. They would rape the natural resources and pollute nature, creating imbalances in nature. Ones have abused the land, the air, and the water with chemicals. They have stripped the natural resources of an area until the land is unusable for farming or even living. They pump the water from the underground aquafers for personal amusement, leaving them empty and subject to the weight of the roads and buildings. Then they wonder why the aquafers collapse. We have created an unbalanced world from our choice to have more than we need at the expense of others, instead of for the benefit of all. Some is out of ignorance and not just purely due to lack of concern for the future, humanity and the earth. Those who mined the coal in Centralia, Pennsylvania did not know that the were creating a situation that would burn for 60 years and force many from their homes. They were providing a product to heat homes and it was from ignorance that this happened. If ones obtained wealth from this it was at a sad cost to others.
Once upon a time on earth, people loved the earth and lived in harmony with nature. There are native and aboriginal groups upon the planet that still remember and practice these ways.
Industrial society would call them primitive and third world. Yet they live happy, peaceful, joyful lives and want for nothing that they need and probably have most that they desire. For their needs and wants are simpler than those in industrial nations. They have homes, food, clothing, and they find peace, joy and relaxation in their group and families.
They have found oneness with Spirit, nature and all life around them, which bring harmony, peace and balance into their life. That is what many seeking monetary wealth are trying to buy. The choices and actions they take are considered for the benefit of all of the group. No one is left homeless and hungry.
The synchronicity of spirit always comes forth and so as I was finishing this writing the following post came onto my facebook page.
On August 6, 2020 – Native Blood – posted this from Chief Dan George that describes this beautifully.
This is written by Chief Dan George,
“In the course of my lifetime I have lived in two distinct cultures. I was born into a culture that lived in communal houses. My grandfather’s house was eighty feet long. It was called a smoke house, and it stood down by the beach along the inlet. All my grandfather’s sons and their families lived in this dwelling. Their sleeping apartments were separated by blankets made of bull rush weeds, but one open fire in the middle served the cooking needs of all. In houses like these, throughout the tribe, people learned to live with one another; learned to respect the rights of one another. And children shared the thoughts of the adult world and found themselves surrounded by aunts and uncles and cousins who loved them and did not threaten them. My father was born in such a house and learned from infancy how to love people and be at home with them.
And beyond this acceptance of one another there was a deep respect for everything in nature that surrounded them. My father loved the earth and all its creatures. The earth was his second mother. The earth and everything it contained was a gift from See-see-am…and the way to thank this great spirit was to use his gifts with respect.
It is hard for me to understand a culture that not only hates and fights his brothers but even attacks nature and abuses her.
I see my white brothers going about blotting out nature from his cities. I see him strip the hills bare, leaving ugly wounds on the face of mountains. I see him tearing things from the bosom of mother earth as though she were a monster, who refused to share her treasures with him. I see him throw poison in the waters, indifferent to the life he kills there; and he chokes the air with deadly fumes.
My white brother does many things well for he is more clever than my people but I wonder if he has ever really learned to love at all. Perhaps he only loves the things that are outside and beyond him. And this is, of course, not love at all, for man must love all creation or he will love none of it. Man must love fully or he will become the lowest of the animals. It is the power to love that makes him the greatest of them all…”
Truly profound words. This is but a part of the original writing but shows us how unbalanced we have become in our perspective of what is true wealth. We have as native and aboriginal people live close to industrial society tried to shame them into changing their values and in America forced them to adapt to our ways and to give up their land for our use.
Today we find groups of people who are growing in their spiritual wisdom and are seeking to live in communal groups to find a similar balance and harmony in their lives with nature, spirit and each other. They do not need to give up all modern conveniences to do this, it is a matter of consciousness and choice that makes the difference. Working together, respecting each other , nature and all life. It is balancing our mind, body and spirit with all that exists and living from a heart centered focus. That is what the Native and Aboriginal peoples have done for generations.
We do not even need to move into a communal society to find this peace, peace, balance and harmony. We can find it in our individual, family and community life, by shifting our focus and perception to the heart and spirit. We do not need to seek more money to be happy. Money is a means of exchange, like energy to give and receive something we need or desire. In the times past they used the barter system which was easy when people didn’t travel far from home. They simply exchanged goods and services between local people. As travel began it was either still a barter system or conquer and take what you wanted from another. Until coin and paper money were developed.
The ones conquering others were not just seeking wealth, for wealth is a means to power for them. No matter how much they took from others it was never enough to satisfy that empty spot, until they are at the top of the food chain or power chain and control all around them or perhaps even the world. Even then if they stop for a moment, they know there is an empty spot within them.
The businesses they create provide jobs. These jobs appeal to people to provide their means to abundance, although they will always be striving as long as they believe their source of abundance is the job they work. I am not stating that all employers use employees for personal gain without consideration of their needs and wants. Nothing in life is strictly this or that it is all about choices and focus. We have allowed accumulation of riches and material goods to be our focus instead of spiritual growth. In so doing we serve that which provides the means to that desire.
Where we place our attention and focus is the God of that moment.
The source of all life is the Creator Source, or what some call Universal Mind, Universal Oneness, Allah, Buddha, Absolute, Divine Trinity, Infinite Spirit, Great Spirit, Anima Mundi, Christ, I Am Presence, it doesn’t matter what term you use to refer to the Source of All Life and there are so many more names. This Infinite Being, beyond form and boundaries, exists within us and around us. We do not remember , for when we began to make choices that were for personal gain, the decision was made that upon this planet we would forget our connection to the Creator. This was done so that we would be limited in our ability to manifest our thoughts and desires and hopefully stop us annihilating ourselves and the planet, until such time as we looked once again to the Creator and knowing Infinite Spirit.
You see it is when we tire of the game of struggling to be at the top at the expense of all others, and realize that we are still empty no matter what the material gains, that we begin the journey to true abundance without limits. This journey begins in the heart. It is an inward journey of love, caring, compassion, Balance and Harmony in our life, with ALL LIFE through the Divine Presence of the Creator within us.
When we make this journey inward to Spirit, who created all that is, we once again begin to manifest in alignment with the will of the Creator for the benefit of All Life and this is abundance without limits. We created lack and scarcity by our choices in the past. We can create abundance for all and begin to change the abuse of the earth and our environment as we live from the heart centered Divine guidance of the I AM within us.
Those who live on the brink, the homeless, destitute and hungry. They represent our greatest fear. We turn from them in fear that we may one day be like them unless we focus on making more money. The universe has certain Truths and Laws which are part of the Creational process and are unchanging. One is the Law of Giving and Receiving. Simply it states that as we are willing to give of that which we have received and share with others, we open the exchange for abundance to continue to flow unto us and through us to Bless All Life.
Deepak Chopra writes simply and beautifully about how we can begin doing this in our lives. https://chopra.com/articles/the-law-of-giving-receiving
When we turn inward to spirit and begin the process of giving and receiving without fear of lack, we open the gateway for not only our fulfillment of joy, peace, balance and harmony, but we begin to end the imbalances in the world. These ones on the brink must also change their thoughts from lacking and feeling apart from society and perhaps useless, to that of being a part of society. For now they do not know how to function, nor do they have the means. We are not saying that ones need to support them forever, but give them a hands up, and provide the means for them to help themselves, to make them feel that they are not outsiders in our society, unwanted and unloved, but simply lost and a path back is opened, if they choose to walk it.
I was reminded while writing this about the the angry people. Growing up I can remember the lady at the corner, that would yell at us if we walked across her lawn. I wondered why. As I have grown older, I begin to understand more. I have seen ones like my mother, who grew up feeling unloved from her mother and her only value being in the work she did. She didn’t think others loved her, and it hurt her so she lashed out first when feeling hurt so as to be in control of the situation. She taught us to value work and its rewards. She showed her love through buying us something. One day, I was show this by Spirit, and I was able to let go of my pain to my inner child. This allowed me to show her love and understanding, which changed our relationship. She was not able to make a complete transition during her life, but a door opened for both of us.
Today in my life I have a neighbor much like her and the little old lady of my youth. I reach out and help her, because she is alone, and in that aloneness is fear the elderly are afraid that ones may harm them. They also have little money and have worked long for what they have and don’t want it damaged for they can’t fix it themselves or have the money to pay another to fix it or to have it replaced. I listen but do not feed her fears and anger. I come to understand she too like my mother felt unloved. She did not feel love from either parent. Her inner child is hurt and her self esteem low. I help her when I can and offer her some companionship when I can. It may not change her life, but it might ease her pain and help her to know someone cares.
Choices, ones say to get rid of all the negative people in your life. That is no different than going off and living in a monastery. I was told by the Creator that they all need love, compassion and respect for that is what they are lacking and why they are angry and negative.
We can only change the world in which we live.
I have always loved the music of Kenny Loggins. My favorite song speaks of this that I am writing. It is called Conviction of the Heart.
“Conviction Of The Heart”
Where are the dreams that we once had?
This is the time to bring them back.
What were the promises caught on the tips of our tongues?
Do we forget or forgive?
There’s a whole other life waiting to be lived when…
One day we’re brave enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart.
And down your streets I’ve walked alone,
As if my feet were not my own
Such is the path I chose, doors I have opened and closed
I’m tired of living this life,
Fooling myself, believing we’re right, when…
I’ve never given love
With any Conviction of the Heart
One with the earth, with the sky
One with everything in life
I believe we’ll survive
If we only try…
How long must we wait to change
This world bound in chains that we live in
To know what it is to forgive,
And be forgiven?
It’s been too many years of taking now.
Isn’t it time to stop somehow?
Air that’s too angry to breathe, water our children can’t drink
You’ve heard it hundreds of times
You say your aware, believe, and you care, but…
Do you care enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart?
We will find we don’t need to go off and live in a commune or a monastery to find inner peace, joy, balance and harmony. We can do it in our current life but it takes dedication and awareness. The Creator doesn’t want us to give up all and live in poverty. The idea that a rich man has less chance to get to heaven than a camel through the eye of a needle refers to the fact that usually the rich man is so obsessed with their possessions, that they mean more to them than their spiritual well being or the well being of the planet and other life forms on the planet. It is not having possessions that keeps us from being spiritual it is the love of those possessions over our spiritual growth and being that keeps us chained to the lower consciousness. Better to give them all away if that be the case, to gain back your soul. For again where your focus of the moment is that is your God of the moment.
All people reflect back to us something in our life that we must look at. If we run away from it, how can we change it. The Ho’oponopono method is good in that it tells us that what we see in another we should clear from ourselves and that will help them to clear and heal. You sit quietly in contemplation and you say, ” I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” Think of connecting to their soul and all souls including your own. You are asking that anyone to whom you have done the same action, that they forgive you and that you are sorry that you hurt them. Your thank them for their forgiveness and you move forward in love from you to all others.” This is a simplified explanation for this writing. You can learn more from searching the web.
If you are Christian, you may look to the Lord’s Prayer. For it sums up what I have been sharing . As we move into our heart and seek the Creator within for Heaven exists in our hearts and seek to know the will and love of the Creator and to act accordingly on Earth, we can establish Heaven on Earth as it was in the beginning. For then all abundance is ours, as the Creator wants us all to be Blessed . We cannot be in peace and harmony if we hold within us something against another , or even think badly of ourselves. The Creator loves us and there is nothing for the Creator to forgive, the forgiveness lies within us and with another, to clear the imbalance and bring it back to harmony. For as we seek always to be guided by the Higher Perspective of the Divine Will and Divine Mind we will not be tempted to create from ego, and personal gain. For all belongs to the Creator and as such is ours as we come into balance and harmony.
The Creator exits within us, and when that is our focus, we have fulfilled our goal for then the Creator can experience and express the Infinite through us and it uplifts all life. We find all our needs and wants are met, for we are guided as to what we need to do for that to happen. We have no need to conquer or control others to be on top. For we know that all is in Divine Order and harmony, and we are loved and protected.
Balance and Harmony is Love, Spirituality and Infinite Abundance. These are the true wealth without end. Our Source is and has always been the Creator. The path is within you if you choose to seek it.
Those who seek power and monetary control have the right to choose that path. For we are all experiencing what we need or want to experience in this life. When we tire of it and find it does not fulfill the need and emptiness within us we will seek something different.
The choice is always ours.
May the path you choose bring you that for which you are seeking.
If you are seeking Infinite joy, peace, love, harmony and abundance.
Seek ye first the Kingdom within and all will be added unto you.
In service to the Divine
I am Marguerite
