How to Respond?

With all of the tumultuous events we are exposed to in our daily media, do you find it difficult to refrain from reacting to each seeming threat or injustice? When we remember that what we focus on grows, we learn to choose our responses, breathing through any initial feelings of shock or dismay, and allowing our higher understanding to guide us.

Choosing to focus on peace is an intentional response to current events. We remember that what the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. We choose to rise higher, knowing that even when we don’t know the answer, we do know that there is an answer.

Despite some appearances, a New Age is dawning, making it imperative to discharge error thoughts held in race mind. In keeping with the idea that it is always darkest just before the dawn, our world currently seems barraged with the outer expression of these fear-based beliefs as they are exposed and released.

We can add tremendously to the healing of our race and our world—individually and collectively, one day at a time, with our intent to live from our Truth, both in our inner lives and outer lives.

Following are some ideas about how to do this work:

  1. Respond with love. Remember that hate and anger mask fear. Respond to the fear, not the rage.
  2. Rule your mind. Be aware of your thoughts and assumptions, releasing those based on false ideas.
  3. Be steadfast in your faith.
  4. Pray. Pray with a Chaplain at church. Leave a written prayer request on Sunday. Call Silent Unity (1-800-NOW-PRAY).

Remember that you are unique and indispensable. You chose to be born during these turbulent and transformative times for the gifts you bring. Your thoughts, feelings and actions do count, and do impact the overall healing of the world.

With all its challenges and seeming disappointments, this is still the most incredible time in the history of the world. You don’t want to miss this—it is worth all the doubt and struggle!

We read in Luke 12:32 “Do not be afraid little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.” Now is the time. This is the place. And we are kingdom-bound!!

God bless us one and all,

Rev. Carla
