What the World Needs Now-

A Government of, for and by the People and Justice will Prevail.

Abraham Lincoln is credited for the following statement: “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.” His spirit indeed lives on through his immortal words. It is for this reason that I bring up this topic today. We need to remember what our government is and should do and what Justice is and how to have justice prevail.

We humans could grasp our inherent power and use that to propel us into a golden era, an era of consciousness instead of death if we but follow these guidelines.

  1. A government that is organized and conducted for all. That’s right-every man, woman, and child regardless of political, social, religious, or economic persuasion or status. Self-serving individuals and groups only threaten the survival of it. Usually, the more unorganized and self-serving government is opposed, the more violence there is.
  2. When there is abuse or many cases of abuse, people do need to raise their voices but cautiously and not just outright riot, loot, or destroy human property. That’s just carrying things too far and is not going to go well in anyone’s favor. What does it solve?
  3. Try withdrawing your support of a government that is not run for all. And don’t support groups that tend to separate and divide people even more so. Be inclusive and help those that need help along the way.
  4. Likewise-with governments or those representing us and do work hard for all, then support should be given. In this day and time with social media and all the forms of communicating, then express your consent. It helps to communicate with our representatives so they know we are WITH them and they are more likely to continue on that path.
  5. All people need to take responsibility for their government. It is, after all, the people that make up the government. If you want a better government, get your own ethics in first, do what’s right and what is helpful for others, learn about civics, and support others that do the same. You can check out https://www.twth.org for the common sense guide to living a happier life. Precept #10 SUPPORT A GOVERNMENT DESIGNED AND RUN FOR ALL THE PEOPLE is what the 5 points summarize.

And relating to Justice, I leave you with this article from L. Ron Hubbard, Humanitarian. https://www.freedommag.org/issue/201505-patriot/l-ron-hubbard/justice.html It is a clear cut reason why there is injustice and how to rectify it.

5 Steps on How to Live Better

Living better requires that we take our learning an extra step and apply certain truths. I’d like to outline here 5 simple steps to living better:

  1. Scripture says, “We will eat the fruit of our words.” That means we will reap or get exactly what we are saying to ourselves. I’d like to go a step further than that and say we will eat the fruit of not only our words, but the foods we eat, the thoughts we think and the things we do. Everything we think, say, and do has repercussions or effects. So why not eat healthier, think positive thoughts, and do things that help yourself and others, too.
  2. Be a productive person. This means staying active in mind, heart and with your hands. The hands we have are God’s tools just as our mind and heart should be, too. So whatever you have the mind to do, do it with passion and purpose and to help others. Use your talents and skills.
  3. Know the Truth of Who You Are! So many people, young and old, are not aware of who they are. What do I mean by that? They know not where they came from or where they are going. We are, in fact, more than just a body. We are a spirit inhabiting a body. Just ask anyone that has died and come back to life. They, their real self, hovered over their body. What happened was they were exteriorized and saw their body as just a vessel that they lived in. Many come back to life with a very real purpose, knowing who they are, and change their lives for the better. Don’t wait for a ‘near-death’ experience to find out who you are. This is related to this other collarary, Find out your reason for being. Know what it is you are here on earth to do and then do it! You’ll be happier because you are on-purpose. Most likely it’s those things you have an interest in and good at anyway.
  4. Educate yourself-stretch yourself to higher ways of thinking and be sure to Look and Listen. Make sure you observe and know what is your truth and not anyone elses. That is called holding your integrity in-knowing what you know and then standing on it regardless of what people think, say or do to you.
  5. And lastly, surround yourself with those like-minded, same vibrational people like you. Like attracts like and hopefully they are positive like you. If not, help yourself first to improve in every way. Then help others rise in tone by offering them a helping hand, but leave them to work out their own problems for the long haul. Getting caught up with enabling isn’t something that you want as part of your repetroire.

These are 5 ways on how to live a better life right now. I’m sure there are many more but these are just the basics. Take each item and then write down some things you can do right now. It doesn’t take months to do, in fact, it can be done just by deciding that you want a better life. Write down what you are able to do starting now and then in 30 days, see if your life hasn’t taken a turn for the better. You’ll probably want to continue on your happier path.

the breath

how can there be anything but the breath?

a breath is slowly drawn and let out from ancient ones

or gasped like a baby quick and furious 

only to be released into the ethers

again in defeat or victory

breathing… in and out… in and out

regularly and steady is life itself

my breath on occasion is held captive waiting to be released…but why I wonder, has the cadence changed?

perhaps it is my outlook on life or the very life within me that seeks expression.
