There's a lot of change going on in this world. And change is good and change is scary. And there's a divine order at work in the universe for all people, for each of us, individually, individually, and for humanity.
Today, our beautiful musician is an instrumental violinist. You probably will be seeing more and more of that on this, from this platform more instrumental music because our world, as we've known it in the past is no longer the world that we live in.
We have gone through a lot of turmoil and unease to awaken to shake us all up. That's part of the divine order. And even though we don't know yet what it looks like on the other side, we know that all the chaos in the universe creates light. There's a pattern to the journey. So what we've been doing for the last six weeks, and that's what we're going to be doing until the end of this month is praying. And there is a divine order in the universe that set this into motion because right now, prayer is what we all need that support and that love of the divine. And so I invite you again to get comfortable and to be comfortable in the silence.
So now I invite you to come back to this now moment, and I answer a question. Was it comfortable just to be silent because it's not always comfortable when we go within. The answers are not always what we want them to be. Life does not unfold for each of us as we think it will.
That's okay. We have to be okay in all of it. I know that we are never alone and that we stay in together in that power of prayer for each other. Does it matter what the circumstances are? Does it matter what the challenges are? What matters is that we connect in our heart space and that we learn to agree and disagree in love as a society. That's incredibly important. And I don't know about you, but the last 10 days has really had me thinking. I've had some serious conversations with some people about my own thoughts, their thoughts, and what's going on in our world. It can be very scary for a lot of people. I do not discredit that at all. Fear can be real, but it's not our truth. Hatred can be real, but it's not our truth. Corruption and brutality can be real, but it's not our truth. That doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.
For me, what it means is that I still have work to do as we all do because 155 years ago slavery was abolished. But yet we have seen played out again and again and again, that that's not the truth.
I have compassion for all of those who are out on the streets protesting. And it's been very hard for me not to leave my home and go to the streets, but I made a commitment that I would do it a different way.
That's something I've had to wrestle with because it goes against my nature, not to be out, standing with my brothers and sisters, walking for justice for everyone. I've had to find different avenues to do an act on what is mine to do and act on right now, as I'm sure many of you have. I'm sure many of you are out on the streets and I love you for it. I thank you for it. Know that I am there with you in spirit and I am there behind the scenes. For those of you that know me, I work a lot behind the scenes, always have. It's kind of who I am.
That's changing. There's a real power for me to work behind the scenes. It's actually a safety mechanism that I put in years ago because of my own experiences of negativity against me, my ancestors, being a woman in society, in corporate America, in the seventies and eighties It's not easy. We all have these challenges. And right now they are overwhelming each and every one of us was social injustice with environmental catastrophes and total disruption in all of our systems and our governmental systems and our shopping systems. I mean, just everyday normal life is changing and continues to change on a rapid pace. Is anybody else feeling that? Did you try to go the store and it was closed at five o'clock. If you don't always listen to the news, you might not know that. Then when you do go, you're supposed to social distance yourself from each other. Right. And you're supposed to wear a mask. Right now, because of limited hours, that's not always possible. Then what do you do? How do we manage. I've ordered groceries for home delivery. That didn't really work for me very well.
We each have a role to play, and we might not know what that is until we ask. So today I'm going to ask you to answer your calling, whatever it is for you, there is something, a desire that you have that is right here waiting to be birthed, to make a change, to see it through because 155 years is a really long time to wait. I don't know about you, but I'm done waiting. So whether you're fixing food to feed those who are out on the streets, supplying milk to wash out the tear gas from our eyes, making mask to give to people who have no other means to get them and handed them out on the street. Whether you're doing childcare, for those that are working for what they believe in and standing up for, whether you're educating other people about what it is that you stand for and why it's important to you to see the changes that we must make in our society.
Divine order is at work in all of this. And I don't know if you recognize it or not, but I sure do. I've seen it coming and it's not over yet. We have a choice to make each as individuals to stand up for what we believe in or to watch our world die. In my opinion, that's our choice. It's not political. It's the truth of who we are. We are one being, and I am tired of seeing God's children. Brutally and violently killed, maimed and displaced because their skin is black or their skin is brown, or their skin is red or their skin is yellow.
There is no need for that in our world. Bullies have got to stop and we are the ones to create an avenue and manifest a way to sit down with other people, with other beliefs and disagree and agree in love, because I'm a realist. I know that we're not always going to agree. And when we disagree, we have to not take it. Personally. I had to really look at that this week because I had some people disagreeing with me and that's okay. They've had other life experiences and that doesn't make them wrong. It doesn't make a difference in the end. What makes a difference is how we behave towards each other as children of God. It doesn't matter what our skin color is. Doesn't matter what our religious beliefs said. It doesn't matter what culture we grew up in. What matters is that you, myself and every person that's walking on our streets worldwide is a child of God and deserves joy, peace, and love with wisdom and understanding from everybody else. Our thoughts create our reality. So what are we thinking? The song said it, our thoughts, our prayers, what are we praying for? Let's stand up together.
Go within and find out what you are calling, being called to do right now on this earth. What stand are you taking for change for transformation for yourself and for the world. It's not too big. Don't be afraid. You were given all the tools that you need that are required for you to be successful. We live in an unlimited world, an unlimited universe and if we joined together as one, which is our true nature, the change has happened today.
There's a passage in Charles Fillmore, "Atom Smashing Power of Mind." And I'm reading from page 52
I'm going to change the language here a little bit. When we get our genius mind into action. We always meet every emergency with something better.
There are many examples of the power of mind, which should make us pause when we are tempted to consider any situation disastrous or nearly so. Every adverse situation can be used as a spur to urge one to greater exertion and the ultimate attainment of some idea that has lain dormant in the subconscious
It's time to bring it to light. It's time to bring it into our super conscious the I am. I am the change that I want to be in the world. Charles goes on to say people everywhere on earth are now realizing as never before that the well being of this world, rest with its inhabitants. This book was written in 1937, and we're still today dealing with the same challenges that we have been dealing with for the last 2000 years, because Jesus taught us the same thing. Enough is enough. It is no longer a religious dogma or a philosophical theory that the destiny of the race is in the hands of man. God has given all things to us to use. As we show determined.
Behold, I set before you the way of life and the way of death. The time is now the calling is yours. Namasta.
