Who is responsible for charity? August 20, 2014 Hill Country News

“If this is going to be a Christian nation that does not help the poor, either we’ve got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and admit that we just don’t want to do it” Stephen Colbert

Am I my brother’s keeper, or what?

This question, reveals that we are in a spiritual crisis in America that could be called an eclipse of compassion.

Somehow “The Haves” are concerned that when seeking help, “The Have Nots” are trying to cheat them and the system. The cry for compassion is lost amid the fear that any call for help is a scam.

Look at how America is seen around the world right now:

Three million Syrian refugees (1/3 are children) are living in the Jordanian desert while America seems more willing to find places on which to drop bombs than to find ways to support these refugees.

As many as 40,000 Central Americans are trying to escape the criminal takeover of their own countries and are being criminalized at the American border, themselves, for seeking asylum in America. This is underscored by the fact that America’s drug habit is being sustained through the collusion of the cartels and the highest levels of our government. Much easier to blame the refugees than to even look at how our drug dependence has created a six hundred billion dollar profit center for those in this country on the take.

In a response showing a monumental lack of compassion and wisdom, we seem more comfortable in deporting the refugee children than deporting the drugs and drug dealers who are already here. If we are being invaded by 11 year-old drug dealers, as some claim, that only reveals how deeply this nation is addicted to drugs.

In essence, the question is not “who is our brother’s keeper” but when will all of us understand that we are our brothers’ brothers. Until we realize that we have
almost 8 billion brothers and sisters, all connected on this planet, we will not be able to understand compassion.

As Manley P. Hall stated, “When mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is ruled by superstition; when the state governs, he is ruled by fear.”

Before men can live together in harmony and understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into wisdom; superstition into illuminated faith, and fear into love.”

So ask yourself: Are you willing to let charity begin at your home?

If you think about confrontations over the past 100 years, August, more often than not, is the time of major global energy shifts. From the start of the First World War to the atomic bombs we released over Japan, to the start of the First Gulf War, to the Second Gulf War, and, now, today we have entered the Third Gulf War. And, once again, we are told it will be just short strategic airstrikes.

Yet, when you see faces of the instant orphans in Palestine, or the frail bodies of old people climbing hills in Iraq without benefit of water for over a week, or the violence indelibly written on the faces of religious soldiers in combat with another group from their own religion, you are confronted with the thought that the critics are right. Religion is the cause of almost all wars. If you doubt that, ask yourself why the Christians, the Jews and the Muslims have been at war, on and off for the better part of the past 1000 years.

This is especially difficult when you recognize that virtually all religions teach peace. Given the results, the heroic stories we bring back from wars should be reason enough to wake-up.

Military-Industrial Cheerleaders, like a recent US President, convinced us to begin a new Crusade, and, sure enough, he announced six weeks later, that everything is ok, “Mission accomplished!” So go home, get your money and your list and go shopping. This one paragraph explains why keen observers see that we have abandoned the central belief that we are citizens first and have become consumers. As long as we get ours, who cares?

But is this who we are?

I’m not that and I doubt you are either.

So what is happening?

I have friends and teachers who are exploring other dimensions of our multi-dimensional relationship with the universe. Gone are the days when we could exclaim with wonder at claims we are connected to our distant moon. What we are now exploring is our connection to the very center of our galaxy.

Here is what the explorers are finding for us. We are, most assuredly, not alone. We are experiencing complex and powerful forces that the center of the galaxy is sending us to remove the roadblocks created by our historical mistakes. Think of this as that special science fiction idea of a star gate. When the star gate opens additional positive energies are available to us to solve some of the most entrenched problems our species has created. Our explorers tell us that beginning last Friday, August 8, 2014, a big star gate has opened and will remain open until the 25th of August.

Using the energies coming to us through this star gate, we are empowered to change the world.

And, the title of this article is the key to the correct use of this exceptional energy we are receiving. Working together across religious boundaries, spiritual boundaries and national boundaries, those of us who are awakened to this new inter-dimensional conversation, realize that the best we can do is reflect the energy we are receiving from the Galactic Center to those situations before us that are causing so much pain and hurt and destruction.

What we will find when we do this is an old spiritual truth: we have it within our power to be the light atop the mountain of a pain-darkened world.

Because we see this happening, it is imperative that we stop studying war and become the instruments of peace. At our companies, our neighborhoods, our cities, our states and our nations, we are the ones who need to be expecting a miracle and the miracle we need will not be like others in the past.

What we are here to do is to receive the message and information that invites us to expand our awareness across the galaxy.

If you have read this far, Congratulations! What this energy is requesting you to do is as old as time itself. Come and see your brothers and sisters living in a peace that is being created by your awakening to what is really possible.

Today, the peacemakers, the Children of God, are assembling to complete the full arrival of peace coming to earth. Are you one of us?
