utopia does exist but….
it does not exist within the mortal bounds of this planet. It can be tasted this side of heaven but only in the hearts and souls of those who are willing to humble themselves and listen with ears that hear the message of truth.
Mankind has been trying to find a Utopian existence since the beginning of time. The horrible tyranny that results each and every time is too soon forgotten and the cycle begins again. There is and always has been only one benevolent Master. The Creator of everything and everyone that has ever existed, God in heaven. Men down through the ages have risen up and proclaimed themselves to be that Master who can create an existence of total equality but it isn’t the equality that the common citizen thinks he is being promised. America is at a crossroad today. We are seeing the age-old tactic of ‘Divide and Conquer’ playing out. The divisions by class, ethnicity, gender, age, lifestyle and moral character, all of us pitted against someone else.
I hold no expectation that mankind will make a different choice this time, or see through the empty promise of equality on all levels. The most empty of all is that of economic equality that only exists when productivity ceases and poverty is then universal. We see this being played out. Industry, whether it be in banking, energy production, manufacturing, farming, education or medicine are not functioning in productive ways due to over regulation of some and over stimulation of others. These are all signs and symptoms of a coming dictatorship.
The common citizen suspicions that all is not well and makes a choice according to what is good for his own self, his own family, his own future. He does not look at what is good for the whole because that is not how we were created. Individual ‘free-will’ mandates that our decisions will always be individual and no two individuals have the exact same opinion of what that is. When our choices are limited between bad and terrible we will always choose the lesser of evils.
Our choices are being limited more and more each day. The individual good is placed behind the collective good. There may be nothing that I as one individual can do to stop inevitability but the freedom that exists in my own mind and soul can be controlled by no human being. My faith and my hope come not from who rules life on earth or from my material possessions or comfort, because this world is not my home. I am just passing through on my way to the only place where Utopia exits.
These last few weeks as I watched my Mother pass from this life with such calm, such grace and such peace, I knew that she was gaining knowledge of her coming life in eternity and that what she was learning made it possible to let go her earthly bonds peacefully, without fear. She still knew us and smiled for us. She hugged, kissed and told us she loved us. All during this time I still kept wondering how she was so calm, how she could not fight harder to stay with us to see babies grow and hear their songs. Then on the last day as I sat in the room with her and watched her slipping away, a calm came over me. I stood right beside her and watched as she breathed her last breath and felt the last beat of her heart and knew that she was going home at last and that her journey through this pilgrim land brought her finally to her eternal destiny and to a joyous reunion with her Savior and all those loved ones already there.
It does not matter whether we elect a Democrat or a Republican, America’s problems will improve only IF the people return, not to religion but to a personal relationship and intimate spiritual knowledge of our Creator who allows us to choose……
From Bondage to Spiritual Faith
From Spiritual Faith to Great Courage
From Great Courage to Liberty
From Liberty to Abundance
From Abundance to Complacency
From Complacency to Apathy
From Apathy to Dependency
From Dependency back to Bondage
The progression of democracies shown above has been played out many times over the ages. America today is transitioning from apathy to dependency. Will we avoid the coming bondage, come to a spiritual awakening before it is too late?
