I have been in contemplation of all the prophecies of what is to come about in our future world. It seems like there is a common thread in them all; that there will be a time of tribulation on the planet, when there is a degradation of society, and there will be a battle between good and evil, right and wrong, righteous and unrighteous.
What is encouraging is that in almost all the prophecies, what is good, righteous, loving, moral, ethical, and about unity and oneness will prevail. Let me share a few quotes that describe this final outcome from a few different religious points of view:
In Revelation chapter 21, verse 3 and 4 it says: “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
The Hopi leader and elder, David Monongye warned: “When earthquakes, floods, wildfires, tornados, drought, and famine will be the life of every day, the time will have then come for either the return to the true path, or going the zig-zag way.”
This zig-zag line represents the path of the Two-Hearts, who are wreaking havoc on our Earth Mother and living contrary to ecological principles and the laws of Nature. The lower line, on the other hand, is the path of the One-Hearts, who are close to soil and the growth of food, adhering to the true Hopi way. The upper path is divorced from the natural world and totally immersed in a manufactured reality, it is a “world out of balance,” or “life of moral corruption and turmoil.
To me nothing is written in stone regarding our future. We are creating it now. We create it every moment of every day with where we place our attention, choose our thoughts, and choose our actions. Everything depends on our consistent commitment to work on our own mind, emotional habits, and spiritual awareness. Do we work to be free of ego-centered behaviors?
Do we work to develop a spirit of selfless service and learn to allow and accept and not take things personally? Do we focus on how to support the common good or just focus on ourselves? Our future is up to each one of us.
I leave you with a quote from Barbara Marx Hubbard, “No worldly peace can prevail until the self-centered members of the planetary body either change, or die. That is the choice. The species known as self-centered humanity will become extinct. The species known as whole-centered humanity will evolve.”
May we evolve, thrive, and in our efforts through love and service behold in our time a new earth where peace and happiness prevail.
In love and service,
