Change: Our Special Challenge

As human beings, we have accepted our ancient beliefs and superstitions as “Gospel Truth,” and we have literally never looked back at how all of this came to be a very important part of our lifestyle. The truth of where we learned our ancient beliefs and our addictions to these ancient beliefs was written about in The Golden Bough by James Fraser (1824) and the many wonderful books, lectures, and articles by Joseph Campbell which spanned 30 or 40 years. Many of our ancient beliefs were also documented in the Old Testament and New Testament. Now we have enough information to look back at ourselves in other lifetimes and clearly see how we have created the myths and superstitions that we are still continuing to live. None of our beliefs and myths have been right or wrong. They simply reflected into our lives the precise level of growth and change that our thinking mind had and has reached.

We have taken our ancient beliefs and made them into our lifestyle, which we continue to live as war, hate, crime, and our inhuman behaviors. We do not need to chastise ourselves for what we have done in the past, but we do need to look at who we are now and change our thinking and behaviors into love, truth,And equality. As humans that are continuing to fight war rather than living in harmony, we can easily see the importance of each of us changing the way that we think and behave. Change is our challenge. We cannot create peace on Earth and good will towards all people without change. Change is and always has been the personal responsibility of each and every human that lives on Earth. This means that each of us is at all times personally responsible for at least changing who we are and how we relate to other people.

We have lived on Earth for billions of years. Now we are destroying Earth because of our greed, ignorance, and selfishness, which is showing us that our thinking mind is not thinking at the level of growth that it needs to think. We, human beings, are totally responsible for what we are creating. As Spirit Consciousness beings, we know that we can change and grow out of our fear and destruction into our love and expansion. For us to be fighting wars at this time in our evolution is a “crime” of our ancient mind and its fear of change. We must change and we must learn the value of love. Love is not sex. Love is an emotion that is part of the design of us as a Spirit Consciousness. If we understood ourselves as a Spirit Consciousness, we would live our love as one thinking mind throughout the Universal System. We have the power to change and we must change now before we destroy Earth, which will leave us as Universal wanderers without a home. We can change!!!
