As we approach the last few days of 2018 what lessons have been learnt? And are we any wiser going forward? Because if we haven’t learnt Life lessons and are none the wiser, we might very well find that instead of going forward, we are even further back than where we were, when the year begun.
In order to move forward, we must rid ourselves of these 3 things – Worry, Want, War.
Worry not – because we cease to be in the now – we have forgotten what we are.
Want not – because we haven’t yet learned that all is as should be – we have forgotten whose we are.
War not – because hate, fear, anger, guilt and pain consume, consummate and separate – we have forgotten who they are.
So as 2018 fades into history, let us be mindful of the follies that separatism brings, disasters and wars. Wars within, and those without, of personal, societal and country. Gross consumerism, materialism, maltreatment of the ozone through greed and political tyranny, gluttony and competitiveness increase the illusion of not-enoughness, and the incessant vacuum of discontent. And so, we fill our world with fears and stress and worry. Worry, the no.1 killer and not only does it kill personal joy, but it holds nations in terror, blocks out the light of camaraderie and trust for humanity, and in fear they subscribe to war.
Prayer " How good to know that God Is, Peace, Constant Supply, Blessed Assurance. How pleasant also to know that our life is the the life of God, and that, that Life lives and moves us all. It is good, it is very good. And standing on the final step of 2018 we delcare, war no more, I AM my supply, both now and always. Amen, amen, amen."
