I am fascinated by questions. The soul’s queries can take us to where we have never been before. Recently, I posed a question to God…what can I do that is most helpful for the healing of the human family and planet earth? An answer came that I am still pondering. CEASE PARTICIPATING IN THE BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL. WITHDRAW YOUR SUPPORT FROM THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE FORCES OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS.
The reply reminded me of a joke. A wagon train was under attack by Indians. A soldier reported to his commanding officer. “I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that our defenses are failing badly. The good news is that there are no Indians.”
We are convinced that evil forces are at work in the world. This belief is central to many religions. The beliefs are so rooted in us that our books and movies constantly portray the battle.
What if there are no Indians, no evil force, that there is only one Presence and one Power? Join me in living seven days in a world without conflict. The world I write of…not planet earth. I am thinking about our souls. Join me…there is no conflict in me and no enemy to defeat. It seems absurd, but what if it is a key to a world and to a people being not just at peace, but being peace?
Please report back on your experience.
