Inequality Anywhere is a Threat to Equality Everywhere...

I woke up this morning hearing the above words ringing in my head.  "Inequality Anywhere is a Threat to Equality Everywhere..."

Of course, once I had my coffee and remembered the source of this thought, Martin Luther King's "Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere" from his Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963 I understood you can not jail an idea, you can not jail the truth, chains do not stop an idea whose time has come.  An idea is stronger than any army. In holding the light with love you understand each action counts, each injustice matters and each time an act of separation and segregation and hatred takes place it is our job to not allow it to stand as a monument and take root.  It is our job to halt it and showcase it for the ineffectual threat it is to our state of grace and set it right shifting the course of our peaceful destiny action by action. It is our job to shine light on the experience with love returning to the ground of truth.

This paradigm works with anything, a way for a shift to remember every action of fear has a fearful result and NOW is the time to shift to LOVE.

Hate anywhere is a threat to love everywhere... etc.  Every action counts and creates a reaction.  What we put into something is what comes out.  Everyday my work is to create more love in my life and the lives of those I come into contact with.  It isn't like, 'wow, look at how cool I am because I am being loving,' it is, 'Gosh, what I am seeing is not okay and I can not sit idly by, how can a look at this situation with love?'  We are facing a complicated age of needing to take loving action every day to reveal the patience of responding beyond the reactions.

Be brave, little by little, in your center, no loathing, no arrogance all love, action by action, thought by thought.  Take a stand for what you know to be true.  If you are a witness to unkindness, injustice, inequality, in-nanity, let your heart share the message of truth in gentle compassion for what needs to be shared in the most loving way.

When one of us is disparaged, all of us suffer.  Each slight is registered and When the sword is thrust at someone it falls on us.  This is the time to stand in love and to release what no longer needs to chain our tomorrows.

Life is a gift of being awake.  Awake to bare witness and to remember the truth.  Allow your relationships to be free of the past, allow the present to be something miraculous.  Allow this moment to live and breath in all its glory simply by remembering the truth.  Love does not change.  There is not love in categories. Love makes right action.

It makes me think about this quote "The holiest of all spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love."  

Hatred can not exist in Love.  Love changes every equation and equals itself.  Let love lead the way.  


Through our relationships in compassionate action nurtured with love come the inspirations of our tomorrows, not of the past, in the present free from the disappointment of past memories.

Today let us be thankful. We have come to gentler pathways and to smoother roads. There is no thought of turning back, and no implacable resistance to the truth.

Experience a shift in your perceptions, make a commitment to compassion allowing your heart to dance in full display of your soul's code.   

Coming from a news background I get irritated when I read or watch the current state of what is considered news and the exchange of information where open letters become the basis of reality to cement a position rather than enliven action to make change. I am tired of the spirit of journalism being reduced to opinions and statements based on beliefs that have long ago been lost in the evolution of humanity.

"No job is too big or too small for God to use. You have the unlimited power of the universe within you and so does everyone else. It's nothing to take personal credit for, nor anything to feel guilty about. Our real power emanates from a force that's in us but not of us." — Excerpted from A Course in Miracles

It is impossible to rely on objectivity or balanced reporting, you have to apply "the filter" whatever it is to create a reasonable facsimile of the actual truth.  Getting past the judgments and illusions of hatred.   There are so many outlets for information, the splintering effect has diluted the impact of a resonating truth.  This does not mean it does not live and breath in your being.  It means it has never been more important than to learn the language of the heart and to remember the message lies within as does peace of mind and peace on earth.

Shifting to an attitude of enough, where each action that is not right minded gets stopped in its tracks, brought into the light of love to remember.  Actions are weapons that lead us to heaven or hell.  It is always our choice.  A choice we can exercise with maximum love.

Lots of Love,
