My dear friend, Helen Halton, sent us a letter in response to several of our recent newsletters. Here are some excerpts from her letter, followed by Spirit’s response.
I am in a great re-examination of all my beliefs. It is a very unsettling and interesting experience!
I am also in a quandary about activism — what do I let BE, and what do I react to? Do I go out and march for Peace? Or do I stay home and create Peace in my heart?
I read yesterday that the school system in Rome, Georgia (USA) is using fingerprint scanning for their lunch room pay system. Second graders’ fingerprints are now in the system. Monsanto and the US government now have a joint patent on Terminator seeds — seeds that CANNOT reproduce. So no grower can save his own seed. Our tax dollars went to create this.
Maybe you would like to ask Spirit about this? I am sure there are others like me, who wonder if they are waiting too long to speak out, or if protest and marching are just reacting rather than creating?
I do feel like I should be doing something, but “fighting” for peace isn’t it!
Fighting for anything at all “isn’t it,” as Helen put it. Life is not about fighting, although many of you see it that way. You see your lives as a near-constant battle against — well, you name it. Intrusive government, dark conspiracies, big corporations, terrorists, illness, folks who disagree with you, poverty, global warming, war, alien invaders, and so on and on.
We are not saying you should not care about all those things we just mentioned. We are saying you should not put them as your first priority.
Then, you might ask, what should be our first priority? Your first priority, friends — first, last, and always — is you.
We’ve talked about this many times over the years. But we remind you again, lovingly, that human life — your world — your planet are all based on vibration. Not action — but vibration.
We are not saying you should never take action. You should — you must, given that you are living in physical bodies in a physical world.
But we are saying action based on fear is always going to lead you astray. Action based on the notion the other guy, or girl, or nation is wrong is doomed from its beginning. You don’t have to look any farther than your mainstream news media headlines to see that.
You are constantly being bombarded from all directions to do something. You’re rarely exhorted to be. To be yourself, to seek that quiet place of peace and alignment within you.
One person, fully centered in her/his place within, fully aligned with the higher self, is far more powerful than the many millions of disconnected and misaligned ones.
In your vibration of peace, love, joy, you — one single, solitary being — have far more power than George Bush, Tony Blair, Vladimir Putin, or any other of your world’s leaders, political or otherwise.
Do you want peace on earth? Do you want your governments to stop wasting money? Do you want an end to human suffering and poverty?
Well, you cannot advance any of those causes by protesting or fighting against them. Remember, you live in a world of vibration — like attracts like. That’s the Law of Attraction in action. And so whatever you resist or protest you create more of.
Here’s the bottom line, friends:
Get your own life in order first — before you start protesting or marching against anything. When you are fully centered in that quiet place within, you are fully aligned with your higher self. And you will radiate an energy far more powerful than any other energy in your entire Universe.
When you get to that place, you will be inspired to take action. But it will not be the action of “fighting against” someone or something. It will be action deeply inspired by the certain knowing you are all one. In that place of knowing your oneness, your actions will always be inspired, and they will always be loving.
Then you, standing alone, will wield far greater power than all the hordes of armies and governments who’ve ever marched through the pages of your human history.
