Headlines are screaming about war and rumors of wars, you practically feel like you have to sign over your firstborn at the gas pump….and flooding, earthquakes and natural disasters are taking place all over the world.
Many are feeling some sense of pain, loss, confusion or at the very least…some trepidation about what’s next.
The fearmongerers are screaming loud and long…and gaining more support everyday.
The magnetic pull of the negative and panic-stricken collective consciousness bears heavy on the soul.
And so, I pose the question…what does keeping the faith really mean for us now?
In my humble opinion, it has to do with maintaining a place of balance, truth and sanctuary amidst the chaos and craziness created by the blaring of the media horns.
It has to do with holding a space of sanity and peace for those who cannot or will not hold it for themselves.
Tao #26 has this to say about staying centered:
Heavy is the root of light
the faster we go,
we slow down time
we are the masters of speed
Thus the wise travel
all day without leaving their vehicles
the scenery is accepted
without undue excitement
My beloved friends, hold your course…stay on track! Be still and know God!
Be like a tree planted by the rivers of water and bring forth your fruit!
As the Psalmist said…”I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved .(Psalm 16:8 KJV).
Look not to the right hand nor to the left but remove your foot from evil. In this case, evil being everything that is unlike LOVE which cast out fear.
And my friends, not for nothing, are the Children of Light are also called “The Faithful”!
Another sacred text we know describes the essence of faith as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
You are anointed as WayShowers, Truthtellers, and Keepers of the Light!
Put on the whole armour of God and stand having done all to stand!
And I close with a quote from Robert Schuller, “Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.”
The guidelines only ever point in one direction…”up”!
As above…so below!
Keep the faith my friends…keep the faith!
