“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
And with the gigantic scale of events, many of us seem be crawling back into our turtle shells, trying to be safe from the melee storming outside the window. Others wail and protest, trying to wake up the sheep to our coming peril, like the proverbial Noah whilst building his ark.
So what SHOULD we do about it all? What if the wildest part was, just like Dorthy and her ruby slippers, we already have inside of us an inherent spiritual technique that can change the basic situation, but we never realized it before? Not to change the entire world immediately, but to shift perspectives, to let go of the methods and ways that we have been entrenched in, but were so ubiquitous, that it was like fish breathing water.
If we look around, even inside our own lives, haven’t most of been trained to think in ways that don’t serve us? Aren’t our habits rather ineffective? And aren’t most of us rather complacent, and try to make our lives as comfortable as possible? And because of this, if we WERE to try to follow the dictate from old Einstein, wouldn’t our efforts be more like simply flailing ourselves around?
Just sit back now, and imagine that you had a calling, a unique purpose that opened you up. Imagine that that was possible for you, and that you had a way to connect to it. That you had a way to KNOW what it was, and then you also had a way to know the best way to make it come alive in the world.
You might find that you have to take a moment now, to imagine this, but if you could, what would that feel like? Do any spiritual techniques or practices from past centuries or current times make us feel this way? Could anything be more motivational?
We are all unique, and nobody has our exact talents. And perhaps we may not have realized in the world we inherited, that there is nothing so satisfying as bringing out those talents in service of what we really need and want to do.
As often happens, starting a new spiritual technique ourselves may cause only small waves of change at first. But eventually, as we wake up to our true power, those waves could start to emanate farther and farther, as they touch an ever widening circle. Now which sounds better? Living an inspired life of this kind, or sitting back in front of the TV, while outside the whirlwind threatens to take the house away?
But how do we find that thing that we really want to do? Ah there is the rub. We haven’t been trained in this art. But perhaps this new spiritual technique allows a completely new way of seeing and doing. We must learn to contact that part of us inside that can see it all in a vision, and learn to direct ourselves from that inspiration. It’s actually simpler than it might seem, I believe. Maybe we just never knew about it before. For more information about it, click here.
