How to Build a Better Man


Walter and Lao Russell shared great wisdom with the world. Distilling their message to its purest essence I come away with this:

To build a better world, we can work with God-the Universe-Universal Principles-Spirit-Nature-whatever your name for the dimension of the creative force that made this earth and man – or against it.

Work with it=beauty, peace and abundance.

Work against it= just look around.

All things in Nature that have no free will work with God as He works with them. Man alone, who has free will because he has Consciousness, asks God to do things for him without working with him.

Children should know that they have free will to do anything they choose to do by working with God or against Him, but that when they work with Him they find happiness, and that when they work against Him they make themselves suffer. Give them simple demonstrations of that act at every opportunity. Show them that when they are watering a little plant and caring for its soil. God is making it grow, and that is the way they are working with God by creating a plant with Him. Then demonstrate that if they stop watering the plant or caring for its soil, the plant will die. That is working against God. Such demonstrations and teachings to children should be endless, and in all walks of life. If there is a great industrial plant in the neighborhood, they should be shown that it grew to its enormous size because someone desired it and started working with God to create it. It had been started by one man who had worked hard in a little place before he could employ thousands of men in a big place. Then show them the little sapling which becomes a mighty oak by working with God.

These are the teachings that will make a better civilization because they will make better men. These are the lessons of Nature, which are of the greatest import for schools to teach. Instead of that, our schools often think that the teachings of greatest import are the dates of battles, the names of characters in events such as “who killed Julius Caesar” or the location of countries, cities, or rivers. Any man may be a great inventor, painter or writer without any such information, but millions of children are bursting with such information who have no creative ability whatsoever, or if they ever have had, it was crushed out of them by brain-building instead of Mind-unfolding.  From Lao Russell’s book God Will Work With You But Not For You Chapter 9

Why Me, Lord?


https://catholicshield.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/question_mark1.jpg?w=327&h=433

Why me, Lord?

Why me?

Why do I have this warm home?

Why me?

Why is my stomach full,

my water clean?

Why oh why?   Me, Lord?

*

Why are my dreams filled with

more

better,

nicer?

Instead of

enough

some

at least?

*

Why me, Lord?

Freedom

to move

speak

think?

*

Why me Lord?

the luxury of dreams?

The richness of possibilities?

The future wrapped as presents?

*

Why must I suffer?

this Seductive “I” ness?

that uplifts me and ignores others?

that elevates my dreams

and snuffs out theirs?

that ignores connectivity

and how others suffer

…..For me.….For my.…..For mine.

Repeat , repeat, repeat, repeatedly suffering, Lord?

*

Until the hollowness, and emptiness echo within the sterility of my self-built walls

that shut out the rest of humanity.

 

*

Why me?

Not               you?

Not                               them?

Not                                               us?

*
*

Lord: Why, indeed?

To open your eyes

And make better choices.

To Serve and Protect

911-What’s your emergency?

*

*

We call,

We expect,

We ask

for those with guns to come

to Our borders, Our streets, Our homes, Our families

to protect

with pleas:

deliver Us from evil

*

*

and it is We who task them

to witness

Our murders, tortures, and lies

day after day

as they run

sirens screaming

into Our battles

towards Our troubles,

towards Our dangers,

towards Our violence.

*

*

Yet some lose their way on their way to Us,

their souls fallen off that fine line

between protection and violence

traveled behind badges and uniforms

*

*

Those who start to see their weapons as solutions

their authority as absolution

for watching justice die

and innocence pay

with endless blood and pain

the cost of laws

that play with truth

*

*

Some lose it in dark alleys,

or silent corners

in broad daylight

in city streets

or the sewers of prosperity

*

*  

After all the carnage

don’t forget it is We

that ask them to come

*

and  arm them with weapons

*

and task them with peace

*
*

Consider Our debt

to those who serve within Our call

to also help them

guard and protect

their

very

own

souls.

World War lll- Merry Christmas!!!


“Why does it take a world war to unite all of America and mobilize our manufacturing toward a single goal? It does because it is life or death, and we have no choice. When the truth is seen, we will see building the energy system and creating a heaven on earth now is life and death, and we will do it.”*

What better could we do to create

exploding world real “Peace on Earth”  a Joyeaux NOEL  a “Merry Christmas” for Tiny Tim and everybody else? This is our world. This is our  time. To wake up. To change. To create the new technologies and show the world  what we can do when we unite with and for each other. Time to take those long spoons and feed each other. Let’s get that serious.

What if

“We act as if we are in a war now to prevent a real war from happening?”*

On this page of the Truth Contest, there are real, scaleable ideas to implement to help create an earthly paradise. One that can actually be enjoyed by us in our lifetime.  There are scores of such sites all over the internet. Following a star to enlightenment is a great thing. But why stop there? Why stop feeling the peace and joy possible for one day only? We can shoot for the stars and land there.  United. Together. Creating the  Merriest Christmas of all. Here’s to the energetic equivalent of WWlll!

“The solution above sounds too simple to be true, too good to be true, but it is not. It is simple and good, and we can do it now. If we did it in wartime, we can do it even faster in peacetime; we just have to be as motivated.”*

In the darkness of  battle

 

One can listen to the voice of  politics

or to commanders orders

or to voices of friends and family.

Those who choose to listen

to the voices in their hearts

within the hell of armed conflict,

honor is yours already.

Veterans day 2014. My highest aim remains the same: making that darkness disappear by adding  my light to the world in whatever way I can so that the enemies of peace can be  seen by all and be disarmed forever.

Today, I AM Iranian


IAMIranian

.

I AM Iranian.

.

I AM intending peace, for all.

I AM intending freedom, for all.

I AM intending prosperity, for all.

.

.

I AM intending the dissolution,

of the separation,

between

“you”

and

“me”

.

.

Today, I AM Iranian.

.

.

.

.

.

.

 

I wrote this poem during the Iranian election political upheaval of 2009. The difficulties in Iran are the same that all countries  face: The degrees of separation between us.

“Country” and “citizenship” are constructs the rich and powerful use to promote ideas that keep us from seeing brother and sister. (<-Click  on another light))

Block the warpath to Iran. (< article on lightenupmyworld.)  What you think and what you do, matters to the world.

All of it.

Independence Day



Independence Day 

* * * *

I look into the face of “evil”

and see

my own.


Peering deeply into the eyes,

I see the angel inside

the fire of life within that body

chained in doubt and ignorance.



* * * *


Structures of domination and oppression, personal and global,

can no longer contain this light

They are exploding!

It is too bright.

It is too strong.



* * * *


We are bursting fetters.

The need for enslavement over;

the “Great Work” changed forever

to releasing the angel within

from all external control and restraint.



** * *


It is time

to forgive ourselves and everyone else,

and come on Home Free, angel,

to your own

independence day.
