Now let us lighten the energies of our souls so we may rise above earth, body and mind, as we hold the energy of the world tenderly in our hands. We are the stewards of the earth, no longer do we need to dominate her. She is our companion on our ride through space and time, not our enemy! One does not dominate the one they love; for love takes paths, through many realms and in many ways where each individual learns to work in harmony with others.
So, now let us extend our arms to the world, no more keeping the world at arm's length, as we visualize our world cradled in the love in our arms and heart, letting the Loving energies of our Sacred Hearts flow in, around and through our mother earth and all other hearts upon, above and within her body. In this act, we are supporting the world and all her life forms, including self.
Let us fall in Love with our Home, Family, Country; all intimately connected to Mother Earth, appreciating her fire, air, water and even the dirt and rocks that we walk upon, realizing the earth below our feet is not below us; it is literally giving us loving support, in each and every step along our spiritual path.
Let us now feel our unity with all people around, upon and even within the earth, as our brothers and sisters, born spiritually of the same father and mother and born of the same physical elements supplied by Mother Earth, mixed ever so slightly differently by the Hands of God and Spirit - as we watched, before birth.Our slight differences are our divine uniqueness and why there are so many of us with unique attitudes, beliefs and outlooks in this world! And yet, we are also of one heart and blood as we breathe the same air and drink the same water, over and over. These are some of the elements and elementals that bring divine energy to each of our physical manifestations of spirit (human bodies) that are powered by the divine through all of our beating hearts; not favoring one over another. All hearts are energized by the love of Creator that created all things. Thus, that divine energy is within all things; at their heart. Yes, even you!
May we continue energizing the entire world, the universe and all of life with our love. Love indeed makes the world go 'round, and then some!
Now we all thank our Father-Mother-God which is All-That-Is as well as the ALL-in-all, for the privilege of sharing the portion of God that I AM, You Are and We Are with the world, as we each bring our many, yet individual, talents, gifts and magic to share with each other from heaven to the earth, to enrich and enliven this world - and leave it better than we found it.
Namaste (Brother John K)

A Blessing for Humanity, as We Are Evolving Living, loving, learning and Growing as a Family
THE U.S.A. IS NOT AN ISLAND FOR LONG Another understanding of our Family called Humanity - from a citizen
Once upon a time there was a man who loved humanity so much that he came to walk the earth and share that love. He took people as they were and loved them anyway. Thus, he watched and listened to all people in many lands and eventually put together what he thought was a "better way" (not "the only way") of life.Because his way was one of love, many were healed as he touched their lives and persons. Thus, he was thought by some to be "divine".Indeed, it is as he said; this ability is in each of us, in our nations and in our leaders, if we will but believe that all this is possible and even likely. But, how do we build anything in life? Together! The bountiful energies of joy, health and healing come to us through loving and believing; not through disbelieving in or disallowing anything or anybody. For, as he believed, all of life goodly and Godly.
Thus, as the leadership of the United States of America becomes more willing to listen and learn from the best of other nations and prepare themselves to work with these other countries and leaders, rather than wanting to believe that "we are always right" (so "they" are wrong), the world will become a better place for all.And, indeed, the U.S.A. might again become a leading nation, helping to lift up those who want that help rather than just pushing them around. We all have come to this school for lessons in love.
There are many other "civilized" countries in this world other than the United States of America, and even some "more" civilized, regardless whether they follow the western or eastern cultural values or something else.Our human cultures and families are in the process of trying many different cultural, political, economic and social experiments, all at once.Thus, people around the world are learning more about their nations and themselves. Many are learning that what is inside eventually manifests in the outer world and thus true "freedom" comes from the heart and soul of the individual - not a government.
So, as we finally begin to come together (again) in loving allowance for ourselves and others, our societies will begin to find that our old friend "fear" creates destruction and wars while our new friend "love" brings the ability to create a better quality of life and live in peace with our neighbors around the world.For, with the advent of the Internet and other modern technological wonders, the world is shrinking. Thus many are finding that our best friends and neighbors may be on other continents, from other cultures and thus may have a different name for their concept of deity.
Some, within the United States political structures in the early part of this second millennium have wanted to believe that they are at the pinnacle of success and that this system is the reason for that success, completely missing how the personal belief in the goodness of all played a role in that success. Thus, today many are not aware that there are other nations or people in this world that are just as valuable as the U.S. and do certain things better than in the U.S.A..We in this country could all learn something from these other people, even if they don't believe that they are the most important people in the world. No political system has the final answer thus no nation or system should feel that they need to be fixed in their so called "perfection". Life continually moves. Movement is what makes things happen, while non-movement is often called "death".
Humanity is experimenting with life and thus experiencing and learning from the results. In this infinite universe, there is and always will be more to learn.Thus, it has been said that the greatest "constant" in the entire universe is change.
So, as this North American country that envisions itself as some sort of "leader" in these times, moves away from the idea of there is a one and only way to live a life; you will see its arrogant and insular leaders and attitudes change.As the leaders of the U.S.A. come down out of their ivory tower, they will then be willing to listen to others, to learn and actually step higher and farther in the process of advancement, along with the rest of the world.
Maybe by 2012, our family of humanity will begin to come together; not in the "globalized world government" that some have envisioned, but in a new understanding of the value of each person and group and their contribution to making the world more "complete", as complex as that may seem.
And, maybe some of our leaders, religious leaders included, will begin to understand that our greatest perfection, as human beings, is simply being human.If it were meant to be any other way, the Great God of All and the process that some call Evolution would have made you as something else; be that a whale, a cactus or even a car.
May the universal, creative and intelligent knowing that is in all that is, bring you a greater understanding of these things; and beyond.

A Personal Blessing A Personal Blessing ... for our world!
BLESS YOUR HEART! This blessing comes to you, no matter what religion you like or profess, or even if you have none at all. You are loved by your creator, no matter whom, which or what you are or aren't. You have come from the union of not only your human mother and father, but also your Mother earth and Father Spirit. So, they are a part of us; you and I, thus all humanity shares this inheritance. You are like the Prophet, the Buddha, the Krishna, the Christ and many more who walked the earth and all of these are still only a thought away. The spirit that they "were", still IS and so as you think of them in love, they bless you as well. Nothing is ever lost in the presence and mind of Creator. Thus, you may kill your enemies bodies, but their souls and yours will come back to fight another day. Wouldn't you rather allow yourself to feel honor, love, joy and abundance of all that is, rather than fighting for all these things?For, it is within the heart of the Earth and within the heart of you and all humanity that the greatest riches are found.
God Bless America is really an international song as the tune came from England and the term "America" covers countries spanning form Alaska to Argentina and beyond, essentially from the north to south pole!
And those blessings, coming from the Boundless Source of all life, that some call God, must also be boundless in their energy and intent, thus blessing the entire world, pole to pole as it rotates!
After all, love is what makes our world go 'round!
America The Beautiful?
The United States of America, as we know it today, is based on the concepts of the Greek Philosophers; as carried forward through the Revolutionary French philosophers. The founders of this country (France and Canada) started off with high hopes and dreams of new freedoms; personal, religious, political and financial.Many of our founding people came to The New World in North America to escape the oppressions of church and state, particularly because both church and state, in Europe and elsewhere, believed that they knew best and therefore all people should do as they say.That was in the 1600s and 1700s, but have times changed?
In those days, the Pilgrims still remembered how the indigenous Indians had taught them what to plant and how to plant so they could survive in this strange new world.The native Indians also taught the Pilgrims how to hunt local game, like turkeys and pigs and even helped them survive the winters by sharing their bounteous food and warmth, when needed.How short is human memory?
A mere 50 years later the children and grand children of those early immigrants had forgotten how the native tribes had helped their relatives survive in this less than civilized New World.So, they began to think of the Indians, who still lived in mud huts, hogans and teepees, as less than they were; worth less and even "worthless"; for they did not have the idea of homes like the "civilized" Europeans had brought with them. And 100 years later those European descendents decided to dislike anybody not like them and thus were killing the Indians and taking their land in one way and another.
The Native Peoples saw the land and the earth as belonging to all human kind, but eventually many in this country inherited the thinking from their English forefathers that they "own" the land.Thus, they came to believe that it was alright to move others off of that land so this select few could take it and have use of it.After all, so they liked to believe, those others are somehow below them and therefore "worthless".However, those "worthless" people knew in their hearts that in the eyes of the God-Goddess of all creation, nothing could be further from the truth.All men and women have inherited the earth, not just a chosen few.
Yes, the early founders of the United States of America also put the words "In God we Trust" on our money, hoping that this people would remember not to worship money.And, they also put "E Pluribus Unum" on our money to remind us that in this nation, though we have our differences, we are all one people; not only in this nation, but in the world.And on the dollar bill, the all seeing eye of God is watching, forever
Did this mean that The United States of America was started as a "Christian Nation" as some believe today?Certainly not, for the philosophers and dreamers behind the founding of this nation came from many religions and philosophies that believed in the God-given freedom of the soul and were thus trying to create a form of Heaven on Earth that respected all religions and philosophies and ways of thinking or believing; not just one.
So, in recent times, these lofty ideas have now become mixed with what some feel is "the need for greed", which is based on the fear of lack that comes from the disbelief in an abundant Creator and creation.And even beyond the shores of these continents of the Americas there are some, through out the world, that believe that they should control other lands, riches and people (just like the church and state that controlled their families in Europe hundreds of years ago, causing many people to flee those lands) all because, again, there were people who thought that they knew better and were better and didn't want to hear otherwise.
All of those who would control others, yes, even in your homeland, have forgotten their divine heritage of all things being created equal.The United States Constitution almost says this by claiming that "All men were created equal".This not only refers to the spiritual heritage of wanting and needing to make your own choices; politically and religiously, which comes from the depths of each soul, but it also includes social and financial choices as well.This heritage of spiritual choice includes wanting and choosing where you live and who you live with, but is rarely taken into account by Religious teachers or systems.
Behind and beyond religions, your heart knows that each soul has come to life upon the earth through the infinite love of an infinite God-Goddess-Creator (with what ever name you may choose) for an opportunity to express and experience the results of their choices and then, if they choose, change, or not.Thus all have the ability to be victims or victors.The choice is ours.This is a part of the Free Will given to us by Creator for each one of us to exercise.In this way humanity discovers self and the God within, eventually finding them to be one, as Mosses claimed.
So, each soul knows that out of the abundance of an infinite God-Goddess and Universal experience, that each person has the right to make a living so that they may continue to exist in this physical form, because of a yearning for learning and thus learning about earning and creating the experience desired.
All was created through love because of desire for the best possible.But, the controllers believe themselves to be "better than" both man and God, and thus are active within the structures of the worlds religions, businesses, finances, politics along with those who manage the earths resources, to control the world. For, if it is not under control, it might get out of hand, and then where would these people be?
With this attitude, it is clear that they do not actually believe in the goodness of an all loving Creator.For many of these controllers live in the fear of "not enough". This is the fear of not being enough (yourself) and thus not worthy to receive enough love or not having enough to survive. When one sees others as "worthless", it is only an externalized image of what they see in themselves. So people are always trying to get more, get bigger and get better, which is motivated by their growing soul, not realizing that as a part of All-That-Is and God-Goddess, the soul already has access to it all.Like the native peoples of this land already understood; ownership is a false idea; for all that anybody ever has is simply borrowed from Creator for temporary use.
But, because these controllers believe that they have the "Only Way", and not just for themselves, but for everybody, they would have you and everybody, think, believe and earn a living the way that they do, say or permit. Thus, it is OK for the controllers to break laws, but not for you or I; as laws are meant to keep people in line and keep life predictable.
This is not the way that the soul grows!Thus there are those who will again think and break out of the box to find new freedoms of expression for the creative beings that they are.Some say that this is beginning right now and will be seen more in 2012 and beyond.
People are like clouds, some are light and some are dark", from Lynn Cheney And, depending on how the sun shines on them and what they have inside, they may shine as any color of the rainbow! God values all, as part of Self!
We are all one with each other as well as the stars! No-thing is separate from God and the Universe!
As the famed American astronomer Carl Sagan said, humans are made out of "star stuff." The heavy elements in our bodies, for example, come from supernova explosions. "We are literally part of the cosmos," says Simmons. "It is kind of hard to keep that in mind as you go about daily chores, but there really is a connection there."
There is no "separation"!
