Heaven and Hell on Earth
THE CREATORS OF HEAVEN AND HELL
The world watched the US news bulletins this week. What was your experience? This was mine.
All the people I saw on the TV news – those police officers who committed the murderous act, the victim, the grieving family and friends, the furious crowds, the anarchic arsonists, the media, the militarised riot police, the nervous, mis-stepping government – all of them, just like you and me – are equal creators of this ‘Hell on Earth’ – co-creators of the societies in which we live.
Equally, when loving and understanding our fellow humans – living from our wisdom and common sense – living beyond mere tolerance and acceptance – embracing all others – with no exceptions, – we are each the creators of wholeness, of oneness – co-creators of ‘Heaven on Earth’.
HOW CAN THAT BE?
Trapped in our conditioned mind, too few see and understand this separation, this division we create.
We do not see that blaming others is the genesis of our collective insanity.
When blaming him, her, them, those, this, or that – we are lost – lost in the belief that ‘it’ – ‘the problem’ – exists out there. In doing so, we are the creators of otherness instead of oneness. We are the finger-pointers, critics, and judges. We are the opinionated, self-appointed holders of the ego-centric ‘truth’ we inhabit.
We are the genesis of the problems we see, the destroyers of life, breakers of peace and makers of partition.
We are the destructive violence we are judging – lost in a state of impossibility – limited to seeing life through the prism of right and wrong – good and evil – power and control – ‘love’ and hate – them and us.
THE BUCK FINISHES WITH YOU AND ME
And we, the people, all the people, you, and I, if willing, can step into a new reality and, in doing so, usher in a new world.
Within each of us lies both the problems and the solutions. Therein exists the realms of impossibility and Possibility – and the clarity of mind to see the difference.
In waking up to seeing Possibility, we are peace, an architect of a world living in harmony – a co-creator of ‘Heaven on Earth’.
AND IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS; YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN WAKE UP
Look around you – how will things be in 10, 20, 50 years if we – you and I – don’t see, understand and transform how we think, feel, what we do and how we do it?
Our planet is weeping, crying out for a new way forward. That way lies in seeing Possibility – in experiencing our authentic, all-embracing, loving self – that person hidden behind our lifelong misunderstanding.
That future is in your hands.
Warmly … John
