This is IMPORTANT! I recently underwent a life-altering Divine experience during which I was given the responsibility of bringing forward a message, not simply for my ears, but a message that MUST be delivered to the entire planet! Crazy, you say? Maybe, but nonetheless, true. And it is with great urgency that I share with you this simple, yet immensely powerful message: STOP THE KILLING!
No need to tell you that our human story is wrought with perpetual killing. Throughout the millennia we have a chronology of death, civil wars, territorial wars, world wars and many examples of mass eradication of civilizations, all the product of human greed, power, control and separation. To make this more insane, we justify our killing in the name of our gods and countries. Somehow my God is more righteous than yours. Closer to home, we casually accept, in the name of democracy, our use of drones to silently kill those who we deem our enemies. Even closer to home, we have the NRA, with 4 million members who continue to enflame the American psyche that having guns is the only sure way to protect ourselves, all 300 million plus citizens, from the evil overlord government coming to take away our rights. Fear and more fear.
All this while in Chicago, to name one American city, over the Labor Day holiday, reported that there were 65 people shot, 13 fatally within a 20-hour period. In 2016 alone, 488 homicides have occurred with the number of shooting victims at 2930. Guns! Internationally, it is estimated that more than 400,000 human beings have been killed in the Syrian war crisis, with millions of citizens forced to flee their homelands due to the insanity of violence and killing. I could go on and on.
A compassionate human being might sit up and take notice of our continued insanity. But, what we have is a population that for the most part is being herded into the field by the corporate media, tied to the corporate machines, tied to the political apparatus, dumbing us down, lulling us into casual complacency and creating a collective myopia, desensitized and asleep at the wheel. And so far, I am only talking about KILLING HUMAN BEINGS! But wait, there’s more!
Not only do we continue to perpetuate and justify the enterprise of killing human beings, but we are also killing the animal kingdom. According to the World Wildlife Fund 2016, there are 18 CRITICALLY ENDANGERED animals on planet Earth, among them, the Mountain Gorillas, Orangutans, Amur Leopards, Black, Javan and Sumatran Rhinos along with Sumatran Elephants, to name a few. In addition, there are 28 other species categorized as ENDANGERED. Among these animals are Tigers, Blue Whales, Snow Leopards, Sea Lions, Red Pandas, Indian Elephants and Chimpanzees. Our beautiful animals are being slaughtered and we acquiesce into a pumpkin latte and think it’s not our problem.
Then there’s this place we call home, planet Earth. Global climate change is still being debated in the halls of our United States Congress while we continue to see record heat across the planet, causing tremendous related problems. The Amazon rain forest, our principle resource for converting our carbon-dioxide and generating oxygen to enable us to breathe, is being decimated, all in the interest of corporate profits. Quarter after quarter, energy, pharmaceutical, and big agro companies report record earnings. The petroleum companies are thriving, bolstered by other corporations, namely the big banks, infusing large capital investments into their continued drilling and use of carbon based fuels. Does anyone remember the BP oil spill or Fukushima? Has anyone heard about the thousands of tons of plastic floating in our oceans, killing off our underwater friends? Anyone, other than Elon Musk with his proposed Mars mission, have another place in the universe where you think we can inhabit?
Yes, this is a BIG DEAL that requires all of us to WAKE UP and take action. NOW is the time. That’s right! Let’s get off our lazy asses and take a stand. What can one person do, you ask? Here’s how we start this mission—
This begins with each of us. You, that’s right, YOU reading this article—for this moment, put aside your inner chatter, the voice within that says, “you’re not tall enough,” or “you’re not intelligent enough,” or “not cute, charismatic, sexy, clever, handsome, rich, or influential enough.” It’s a false flag that, “I’m only one person and no one cares about me anyway,” or any other internal voice that somehow tells you that you’re not perfect. And do this instead:
Stop the negative self-talk! It’s violent. It’s false. It’s not real.
In this moment, tell yourself and FEEL its impact that you are PERFECT! Say it: I AM PERFECT.
The present moment is all we have. Do this again and again. There are an infinite number of present moments. Say it: I AM PERFECT.
Share this message with everyone you know. All your social media friends and acquaintances.
Imagine the world you want and then live as if it is already so.
Don’t look to our politicians or anyone else to do what you know needs to be done. And remember, change always starts with one person.
Today, I begin my mission of getting the message out to the rest of the 7+ billion human beings sharing our common home. I ask you to join me to…
