The biggest challenges provide the biggest opportunities for growth and success.
All of the world is focused on Egypt right now.
It is interesting that for the moment, the problem is not the Jews and the Arabs.
Now it is the people of Egypt declaring that they want a better life and better government.
It is amazing how the stories and patterns of the Bible and the Old Testament repeat themselves. Remember the classic story of how the Jewish people became slaves in Egypt and Moses led them out of slavery, through the desert where they wandered for forty years, to find their Promised Land?
Egypt symbolizes darkness and the Jewish people lived in darkness and poverty consciousness as slaves. Moses brought the light and led them to freedom and prosperity consciousness. Not only did the Jewish people find their Promised Land in Israel, they transformed their negativity, beliefs, attitude, words and actions into enlightened freedom, health and wealth in the land of milk and honey.
Today, all eyes are on Egypt once again. Egypt is again a symbol of darkness, as its own people are in slavery to their own government and way of life. It is time for Egypt to free itself of limitations, negative patterns, beliefs and old way of life and to come into the light of freedom, health and wealth.
Where is the ‘New Moses’ who will lead the people of Egypt out of darkness and slavery to freedom? Maybe there is a Moses inside each of us. Maybe we just have to acknowledge this truth and have the courage to follow it.
There is a way to peace. It starts by being thankful for all of our blessings and gifts that God gives us. Everything comes from His love and generosity. We all know what the proper principles of life are. The challenge is to consistently live them.
Life is simple. It is like children playing in a sandbox together. There is a certain amount of space, sand, shovels and buckets to share. Will the children ‘play nicely together’ and share and have fun or will they be selfish, greedy and controlling? They can either share the blessings or fight over them.
We adults tend to make things so complicated and cover up the source of the problem. Either follow Proper Principles and The Golden Rule, or die by the sword of our own selfishness, greed and dis-ease.
We are our own worst enemies. We do not need someone else’s help in destroying our lives. We do the best job of destroying our own lives. We are also our own best friends. When we do the right things our lives blossom and thrive. When we choose to follow proper principles we grow and prosper.
God gives us all the freedom of choice and all of this glorious abundance on earth to love, thrive and share. He also allows us the freedom to waste these precious resources, especially our own lives.
Egypt can now be an example of proper government and proper principles. It is up to the people to choose properly and take action. Egypt can be a light for the world to see and an example of transformation.
It is time to stop pointing the finger and blaming, judging and criticizing others.
Each person is responsible for their contribution.
The people of Egypt are responsible for their current government.
They are also responsible for choosing a new one with honesty, integrity and freedom.
It is time to acknowledge the SOURCE and time for sincere prayer, meditation and proper principles and conduct. It is time for compassion and truth and peace. This must begin inside each and every person’s heart and mind.
Let’s all give peace a chance and hold Egypt in the light with our prayers for peace, unconditional love and compassion. Let’s open our hearts and pray for God’s Grace for all people.
“A smile is the beginning of peace.”
“He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the world.”
“If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.”
“There can be no peace as long as there is grinding poverty, social injustice, inequality, oppression, environmental degradation and as long as the weak and small continue to be trodden by the mighty and powerful.”
The Dalai Lama
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
