Contemplation and Prayer

When in line, help to develop your patience by:

Thinking . . .

I’ve read that daydreaming is a form of creativity.  So, wait in line and learn how to stretch your imagination.

Patience in terms of sex and love is not only admirable; it quite often can help to assure longer lasting and more fruitful results in these most important parts of our lives. The reality of life is that we must find ways to develop meaning and purpose – not hedonic pursuits that will leave us empty and unfulfilled. Rather, we must explore ourselves as honestly as we can – with the help of others – from birth onward.

The future is all we have ahead of us, and it is inherently uncertain.  Dealing with these uncertainties in life is a test that is just a part of life.  These uncertainties can cause anxiety, pain and suffering.  I believe prayer can help – in good times and bad times.

From Hurting…To Helping

We must transform the world from people hurting people to people helping people, whether one is speaking of nations, corporations, other human entities or individuals.  There is an innate sense within us that seeks to help.  Let’s see that part of us reign—one by one, million by million, billion by billion.

There is no question that each of us and all of us have an enormous role to play in that inevitable march toward Heaven on Earth, which will include peace and security, freedom, democracies, prosperity, gender harmony, racial harmony, spiritual harmony, ecological harmony and health as well as moral purpose and meaning.

The road ahead probably won’t be easy.  But it will be enormously rewarding to everyone on our planet.

God is with us.  Who can really believe that we can’t succeed?  The world is getting smaller and smaller as globalization and technology march forward.  Let us adopt the wisdom-associated values of Copthorne MacDonald and shun the negative values he identified.

First, we must strive to say and do the right thing.  My belief is that God cares about this most.  We should live “The Golden Rule.”  Second, we must cultivate the values referred to above.  Third, beliefs that support these values and behavior must be respected and adopted one by one as each person’s whole being sees fit.

After a long spiritual journey, I now describe myself as spiritual, but not religious.  At the same time, I find so much truth, wisdom and values within the loving great religions of the world.  There is no question in my mind that the spiritual leaders of the great loving religions are all-important in our march toward Heaven on Earth.

From Innovation to Spirituality

We are presently in The Innovation Age.  This will eventually to a spiritual age, which will be a Heaven on Earth.  A Heaven on Earth will evoke kindness, compassion and love to and from all of us as we act with mutual respect, friendship and admiration.  We must innovate in deeds and faith—worldwide—with a deep appreciation of ourselves and others.  That certainly doesn’t mean that we should all believe the same things.  The values that are present in the world’s loving religions are to be held in high regard.  Thus, those values can and will lead to deeds that will help us progress to a Heaven on Earth.

We all have an important role to play in this ultimate journey.  Kindness toward ourselves and others is one of those basic values.  Honesty and truthfulness also stand out in my mind, along with justice and fairness in our dealings with others.

Faith is a concept that we all need; but while we are all more alike than we are different, we are all unique.  So, our faiths may take different loving avenues, yet arrive in the same place—to values and more importantly, what we say and do.  My faith is in Almighty God, the Creator of the universe(s) and that little piece of God within each of us and all of us.

The world is getting smaller and we all need each other.  Deeds are the key to progress toward a Heaven on Earth.  What we say and do—all seven billion of us—is crucial to progress in everything from peace to prosperity.  We all need love.  That includes not only self-esteem and love of others, but an orientation of kindness toward others.
