A New Way of Being Present (in the world)

The old foundation for how we have shown up in the world has been based upon fear. We have been trained to plan for emergencies before they happen, be careful where ever we go and whatever we do, and view the happenings in our life with skepticism, doubt and fear.

Jesus tells us in “A Course of Love” Chapter 5, Paragraph 5-3, “while creation is perfect, something has gone wrong within it.” I believe the choice for suffering that has been made by our human race has created the chaotic conditions we are experiencing. Jesus came to reveal the choice of love to us, unfortunately the choice to embrace suffering has continued. So why is there so much suffering in our world? Because we are trained to worry, fret, doubt, fear, seek revenge, complain, criticize and condemn instead of seeking a spiritual answer utilizing faith and trust.

Jesus in Matt. 6: 31 & 33 say, “Do not worry or say what will we eat or what will we drink or with what will we be clothed… your Father in heaven knows that all of these things are also necessary for you… Seek first the kingdom of God… and all these things shall be added unto you.”

We have been trained and educated to doubt. The only problem we experience comes from our power to change these simple promises of Jesus. Let us now invoke the power of faith knowing that these promises of Jesus are real.

This is what Paul meant when he said, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” This stand of faith and truth, I believe, is the new paradigm that will help us in our spiritual community to minimize our personal suffering and in a larger context begin solving the suffering of the world through a Spiritual Solution that Jesus laid out for us centuries ago!

I Love you...
