Encouragement to Act and to Choose
I don’t mean that we are alone or unaided in our efforts when I say that “only you” are responsible for self-governance of yourself and your State. We have plenty of help on a Universal basis, and that help is more or less instantly available to us when we ask for it.
It’s the “asking” part that we fall down on, first, because we don’t know that there is anyone or anything else present to ask, and second, because we think that we are self-sufficient just because we have free will.
Neither of these assumptions are true.
Jesus tried to tell you and I am telling you, too. Ask to receive. Knock and it will be opened to you.
We are not alone. We never have been. We never will be. We are part of a Universal Dynamic. We are hard-wired into the Web of Life and the Ordered Dominion that gives rise to life of all kinds.
Rocks are alive, because they are ordered structures composed of pure energy. So are we.
Think about what the relationship between mass and energy reveals?
Think about what the chemical and ordered physical structures reveal?
Not only that, but we are clearly not static creations. We are being created each and every day that we live. Our creation did not begin with a moment of fertilization, though that did mark our physical incarnation in this life, and our creation certainly did not end with parturition from our Mothers.
We are all, right now, at this moment, in the process of being created and sustained. All of us. That creative power is not our own. That knowledge and those resources don’t come from us.
Just stop for ten minutes and really think.
I have looked and sought and asked and thought for many years, and in all of that, I can only conclude that like Toddlers, there is only one question that we are generally well-suited to answer, and that question is: what?
What do we want? The red elephant or the blue binky?
That is the question the Universe asks of us and the one question we can answer.
Do we want truth, peace, compassion, grace, kindness, humility, sharing, freedom and life abundant?
Or do we want lies, illusions, war, selfishness, gluttony, cruelty, bigotry, deceit, arrogance, and death?
Our choice. The whole Universe waits for our answer.
So while we are not alone, and while we can’t and don’t sustain or create ourselves, we do have a crucially important responsibility and role. We each need to declare what we want and where we stand.
This is why we are instructed to “Choose life.”
There is an active element to this.
We aren’t supposed to just dawdle along and go, “Uh, I dunno….uh….life or death, that is the question… uh, well, I dunno the answer to that one…. really tough quizzes you give, Grandma. I mean, if you live, you gotta do stuff like homework and raise kids, and if you die, you can just lie in the ground and rot….”
And we aren’t supposed to overly worry ourselves about all the other questions — the why, when, where, how, who and so forth. Like most everything else, that’s provided once we know what we want and focus on it.
