This Week’s Quotation:
Now suppose we look toward the manifestation of the new earth state. Suppose we anticipated this beautiful outworking of things, and we had a leader who said, “We never have to come to grips with the forces of darkness.” What kind of a leader would that be? What hope would there be for the fulfillment of the new earth state?~ Lloyd Arthur Meeker
To Love in the Face of Tyrants
Most people probably don’t see their lives as a battle against darkness. That view of the world can lead a person to all kinds of bad places—fear, belligerence, and self-righteousness, to name a few.
And still… Looking out at the world, it is hard to deny that dark forces are at work on the global scene. Whatever you attribute it to—poor moral character, satanic influence, or primitive thinking—while it is hard to make any sense of what we see, it is hard to deny it.
That’s the global scene. What about the people who inhabit the immediate sphere of your own life? Most of us come across people who are ethically challenged at best. What do we make of them?
Here’s what I’ve learned. Whatever you want to call it, evil is present in this world. Becoming embroiled with it only brings us down. Fear of it disempowers us. The only answer is to shine the light of understanding and radiate the power of universal Love.
To the degree that a person does, it is easy to acknowledge the forces of darkness. They are present in the world and perhaps even within oneself. But they do not deserve the focus of attention.
What does deserve our focus of attention? The source of all that is creative in the human experience. When we attune to that, we resonate with the power that it emanates. That power moves our heart, inspires our mind, and gives us courage.
The practice of Attunement empowers us to shed light where it is sometimes dark and to Love in the face of tyrants, large and small, until Love rules the world.
What Is Attunement?
Attunement is a consciousness practice and an energy medicine practice that leads to personal spiritual regeneration.
