Using Financial Crisis to Find Higher Freedom

QUESTION

In this time of unprecedented economic downturn, people without jobs and families losing their homes, is there anything to say to those of us who have experienced this loss and trauma? I don’t know what to say to my friends and coworkers who no longer have a job, and the prospect of finding one when most companies are not hiring is bleak. It’s easy to tell them that the universe will provide and something better will come along when I’m not the one having to find a job at the age of 55 or 60! Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

ANSWER
Certainly these are difficult times, and odds are the darkness has not fully settled in with regards to how events will continue to reveal the deep cultural lies underlying our present predicament. There will be no easy “way” for people… except “roads” that seem easy because they run downhill spiritually. 
As far as working to help lighten the load for those less fortunate, there will be a time for that as well… and only time will reveal the requests we must each deal with according to our understanding and possibility to respond. Yes, optimism is needed, but it must be in “things unseen, and not in things seen.” Otherwise, we simply build again the completely false psychological structure now seen crumbling at our feet. 
Real hope, real goodness is right before our eyes. We need only be willing to see it; for seen properly, what are these economic “blows,” these seeming winds of destructive change? They are the distinct action upon us — individually and collectively — of a broader intelligence revealing to us, through each painful blow, where we have misunderstood the purpose of this life due to the unconscious influence of a level of self responsible for that misinformation. 
We must remember that healing ourselves (at any level) always begins with an awareness that something is out of order. To resist disorder — to deny it, blame others for it, or hope it goes away by itself — is to refuse the gift of that revelation… as unwanted as it may be at the moment. 
So, let us each do our individual work of remaining as receptive as we can to the lessons being offered now, and know that if we will do our part in consciously welcoming these discoveries, the Divine will do the rest. Then we may trust that all of this will be seen as it is in reality… Good.


  • Your Name

    Don’t say anything. Most of the time when we see someone who has lost a job or home, they don’t request for us to say anything. Treat people as if things will be alright. Lost a job-don’t ask, “How are things coming alone?” nor “What are you doing with yourself.” and the stupidest question, “What are you going to do, now?” We should continue to be supportive as usual before the downturn. The reality is that this too shall pass. I was laidoff from work since March and my faith enabled me to get my house in order(financially and spiritually), look over my life to see where I need to be at this point,and looking at others as far as giving of myself. The mindset should be of concern and if we see someone reaching out or acting out on a situation…..show compassion and shut up.
    Let Go, Let God
