Does anyone think the spiritualist community is imploding, with all the negativity and hatred and personalities attacking one another. How is this service to spirit, why are people more bothered about other’s and not working on their own paths and their own development. Why is it that we, as a group, decide to attack based on lack of knowledge, understanding and compassion. Why are you so bothered about what’s happening in other areas and feel the need to criticize without facts or seeing the other side.
Why not remain silent and slowly work on yourself to be the better self you can be to reflect that which is divine, and that which is in service from the heart and soul and not misguided judgment or agenda. Instead of taking part in group destruction, perhaps it is time that everyone worked on self first and looked within before having to attack and berate. The reality is this, we all want the same thing, we all have similar goals and a desire to be wanted, to be respected, the only difference is methodologies, but if we really look at what we all want, its the same goal and ultimately – understanding through peace, love and compassion.
Everyone wants peace and love in their lives, but often we are the cause of our own failures and demise. Nevertheless, we are now at that point where we have a choice to turn the corner of positivity to the life of peace and happiness we all desire. Let’s look at why we cause our issues and what we can do to rectify them and become more of who we really are.
Not with standing the atrocities that have happened throughout the world, such as terror and wars – we should never witness. We must remember that we do not own this planet, this place we call earth. It is wholly owned by our divine creator and we are merely guardians for a short time. We are all connected and yet so far apart. One seeks to destroy another and the reality is that it destroys only the person who causes the hurt and pain.
All of us are interconnected and rather than creating division we should be joining together for a greater goal and to move forward together in peace and happiness as we learn the lessons that help us evolve spiritually. There is enough turmoil in this world without bringing it on our own doorstep. You can’t preach spirituality and the power of the divine if you can’t act it or live it within your thoughts, speech and actions. Why bother about what someone else is doing, is there a reflective part of that which you don’t like in your own life, that you feel justified to attack. Is it lack of achievement or envy or just a belligerent hatred for anything not of your path. Is it not better to place an opinion based on your path or understanding – look at others with non-judgement and respond with compassion, why respond with hate and vile emotion, it gets no change in anything and makes the situations worse.
You can’t be an ambassador for spirit if your own spirit is unbalanced. Either way, checks and balances have to be met and they will be balanced. I know how I want to spend my currency. I would rather meet even my enemy with love and compassion than be the seed of hate that causes suffering.
Do Not Judge, You Have No Judgement Rights
Jesus said, “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you” (Matthew 7:1–2).
We must learn that we do not have the right to judge except the judgment of our own lives. Opinions are merely that, just an opinion and those are personal to ourselves. We are no better than one who commits a negative act if we hide behind the persona of spirituality and can’t live it. Nothing changes with an opinion. Judgments only bring destructive forces, which push us back in our development. I would rather spread a word in kindness and let that touch the hearts of those directed, rather than be negative and be the cause of suffering, pain or even worse, the cause of someone to take their own life. It feels better to serve with love, to give with love and above all – allow the passion of understanding and compassion to tip the scales to peace rather than destruction.
When issues arise, there is always a root cause, an individual or event that is the catalyst and one must examine the catalyst to uncover the truth. Why was that caused, what is the lesson from this. Who is really suffering?
Something Comes From Nothing – Nothing Does Not Exist
The greatest inventions and technology of our time came from nothing; all organizations come from nothing, but nothing is something, as the divine is the creator and the giver of the power of thought which gives birth to something that is considered nothing. In this respect, everything that surrounds us – materially, physically, spiritually and emotionally are all thoughts. One thought can start a wonderful chain reaction that gives birth to something that becomes a creating force of positivity that changes lives, brings peace or helps us evolve. It takes the power of divine intelligence to inspire someone to build something from what seems to be nothing. If you are involved with an organization, a company, a group, a movement, then all of these are equal – all have come from a mere thought or desire to evolve, grow or serve. Why then would we wish to make a judgment on nothing, because we are all nothing without the divine. It is better to walk your own path and to touch hearts and souls upon our journey than to waste time with frivolous perceptions, opinions, and judgments.
Strive For Peace – Bring The Spirit Back
Man is forever searching for peace and peace evades man because of the negativity which he ultimately brings upon himself. One negative energy is just as destructive as the greatest evil against humanity, because, this energy attracts the other and so as like attracts like, negativity grows like a cancer that you have caused and possibly served on another like a poisonous chalice. In order to seriously bring harmony and peace, then one must take action to be the epitome of harmonious resonance in all aspects of one’s life. Take action now, choose from now to love in the here and now and to think before acting with forgiveness and compassion.
Tips For Living and Growing
To learn the following, start with awareness and bring awareness into action.
Speak With Only Love
Be mindful of your speech, you can be the seed that sows itself in a beautiful orchard and with loving speech, you will only bear wonderful fruit. With hateful and spiteful speech, you will only bear weeds that will not feed the soul or quench your thirst, but strangle the spirit with hate.
Think With Only Love
Your mind is also the creating force, you are a visual person and a person with free will to use your mind. If you think negative things against your fellow man or you think negatively about your life, then you are watering the garden with only that which you are giving. Become aware of your thoughts, if you want to be spiritual and you want to get closer with the divine then take loving action with your thoughts. Think only love, because thinking bad is just as bad as doing bad, you have the choice to think only love about every aspect of your lives and others, you paint your own canvas. Nothing will change unless you make a positive change in you. As Ghandi quite rightly said;
“Be the change you wish to see in the world”
Write With Love
With the advent of social media in our lives, many have taken to the digital pen, being able to spread hate and yet try to preach love. Again, nothing will change for the better if you don’t change for the better. What good do you do by writing with hateful speech or making judgments based on mixed perception. Your life should not dictate another. If you wish to make a difference, then pick up the chalice and take a drink from reality. You hurt only your soul.

Give With Love
Giving unconditionally is the best way that we can be of service and this does not have to be material. You can choose to give love, you can choose to give compassion, you can choose to give service, but all must be done from love. Many give with an underlying condition or a hidden agenda. That is fooling no one but yourself. The greatest spiritual leaders of our time have always given love without condition and surely in wanting to feel peace, you must wish to give peace.
“Acorns can grow into wonderful trees, but you have to plant the acorn first, for without that first act, you have nothing but empty soil.” JB
Share With Love
As children, we are taught the values of sharing, how wonderful it makes you feel to share with others. Whether you share knowledge, food, money or anything else, you should share with love and have not one negative thought with the sharing. It is in sharing that we are blessed with so much of what spirit gives back.
Forgive With Love
Forgiveness is something that you have to learn from the soul. Making judgments or feeding negativity does not show that you have the capacity for forgiveness because you revel in the short term joy that you feel by fueling a fire, but, that fire can get out of control and you become the catalyst that causes suffering and pain to another with others fueling and giving more power to evil thought and malice. Doing this out of a mistaken sense of duty is just as bad as taking a knife and wielding it in anger. Often what we have to do is to forgive ourselves before we can forgive others, to really know what forgiveness means is to be able to be unmoved by any cause and to still have the capacity to show compassion and to forgive with love. Ultimately divine law will always play out and it is better to be in harmony with divine law than opposition that causes spiritual sickness.
Love Forgiveness and Compassion
This is not written to be some kind of self-righteous act of policing, it is written because I strive to live with these three rules of life, these lessons that are the fundamental basis of all religions of all spirituality and of the roots of our universe. If we can all strive to try every day to actively take part in being peace and truly understanding love, then what chance has negativity or evil or unbalance to take root. What chance does disease have where love exists and that which you desire the most will be given in abundance. Surely we must take action, surely we have this chance to make the choice and to actively live what is preached and preach what is lived – finding peace in a tumultuous world.
In the words of the great Nazarine
“Do unto other’s as you would have them do unto you”
