The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren’t any space aliens. We can’t be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we’re not all that is. If so, we’re in big trouble. ~ Ellen DeGeneres

This week we’re featuring an article by my dear friend, Ted Murray. Ted’s an accomplished writer and spiritual teacher. He’s also a great tennis coach.

In Ted’s message today he raises a powerful and timely question, one that should concern every one of us.

Ted Murray

What planet are you from? Have you ever asked yourself (or someone else) that question?

Does it sometimes feel like you don’t understand life on this planet called Earth? How could its inhabitants be so cruel to each other? How can they be so callous to the planet itself, to the point of making it uninhabitable for all life forms? How could people be so selfish and greedy that they are consumed only with amassing more personal wealth and power without regard for how their actions affect everyone and everything else on the planet?

When you look at the astonishingly destructive things happening on this planet it’s easy to feel like an alien. Perhaps you feel like you remember living in a place where love was all there was, and everybody was connected in a spirit of oneness. How can that same spirit be possible on this planet with all its challenges?

Realize you aren’t alone in these kinds of feelings. Wherever you are originally from, you are here now to bring that spirit of oneness to this world. We are all like explorers who have been sent here to bring love and cooperation to a crazy planet.

Instead of feeling like an alien, perhaps you can see yourself as a bringer of love and light to a dark space. Many others are here for a similar purpose, and when all gather together in person or in spirit, the light that shines will overcome all darkness.

Love & Light,
