The Light is Dawning. Good Morning. See through the Illusion.
The I'm right and you're wrong argument is a toxic argument. I'm not saying you gotta accept each others' views .. but ya gotta accept that other people do have different views. I personally don't see that being evolved has to do with what you know. "Pride ye not in your knowledge O man." Being evolved is your ability to not lose reason when you lose an argument, and not resort to anger to get yer point across.
The ability to own your emotions and not give anyone the power to bring your emotional voltage down is also a mark of being evolved, rather than being advanced. These lessons afford us an opportunity to grow.
You don't have to prove someone wrong, or prove yourself right, because that is a tiny victory, which serves the ego more than the soul. Ideally, if you all can validate each others thoughts and feelings and understand where each other is coming from, then that is what peace and love embodies. It's when one chooses not to understand where the other is coming from is when the heart grows cold.
I guarantee when you wake up the next day and realize how your words and deeds have hurt those you care about, you will feel far worse regret than BEING hurt... that's what being evolved means to me. If one man far away whom you've never even met has so much power as to tear your family apart .... then that too is not the fault of that one man, who does NOT have such power ...
Also.. if I may ... judging how much compassion a man has or doesn't have, because WE have compassion for others, is truly self-defeating, for that is when one loses one's own compassion. One man does not hold power over millions of people's lives. It is the people themselves who hold that power over their own, and share that power within the community. We cannot judge the hardships of others either, because out of hardship is where the greatest advancements and evolution of the Heart and Spirit come. When people HAVE to work together to survive and thrive, then that is God's Blessing upon them.
In this world, many things have to change. It's not going to be pretty to witness. But we cannot be afraid. We are not there standing in Puerto Rico ourselves. We only know that the media says this or that is bad or good .. and the media's job is not to cast judgment, because as soon as that happens, the truth is distorted, and controversy has reared its ugly head which requires investigation to get to the truth.
When people have to work together to survive and thrive then egos quickly disappear, and people come together, and your enemy becomes your brother and neighbor. Those whose egos cannot handle such a necessity of life, will become a thief and outcast, scrounging for scraps of food, water, and shelter. It is not Divine Will that we destroy each other. The Divine Will is Love. And if it takes hardship to realize that, then that too is The Divine Will.
The same applies to the fires that burn. The reflection of seething egos and angry response to diversity is the truest origin of those fires. Those fires burn in everyone's lives daily, until ego (pride, jealousy, control, etc) is burned down to the ground.
It has been known for a while now, that these disasters and destructive events may be the only thing that saves Humanity from itself, forcing people to have to acknowledge each other and work together in the Spirit of Love, cooperation, and compassion -- Truth of Life (rather than the alternative).
Everything you accuse another of doing, also, you are guilty of doing it yourself. Law of Attraction. Truth of Reflection. Inner and Outer Creation.
