Lately, for whatever reason, I’ve been hearing a lot from folks having a tough time with what’s happening on our planet today—the wars, corruption, financial collapses, crime, etc. etc. They feel lost and lonely, despairing of ever being able to change things for the better.

Is our world going to hell in a handbasket? Is there any hope, any light at the end of the tunnel?

Here’s Spirit.


You did not come to this lifetime to right the wrongs of the world. First, there is nothing “wrong” with your world. Obviously there are events and circumstances many of you would like to see changed. But you are not the world’s savior—you are not its white knight in shining armor.

You came to this world to participate fully in whatever experiences you’ve chosen to create. The same is true of everyone else on the planet. You are here to create your own life experiences and to co-create with others whatever experiences you choose to share with each other.

If others choose to create experiences you consider negative or “bad,” so be it. That is their right.

You cannot judge another’s experiences, choices, or intentions. You can only allow them. If you do not allow them you will drive yourself crazy.

If you do not seek your own happiness in whatever life experiences you have created you will never be able to help others find their own happiness.

The only place from which you can help others is that centered place of peace and power within you. Seek your own happiness first. Then you will be empowered to help those whose lives are difficult and dark. You will never be able to help anyone on this planet by taking on their pain and sorrow.

Be happy. Have fun. Then help others do the same by setting the example, the energy, and the vibration which will empower them. You cannot do for them what you are not willing to do for yourself.
