For your consideration….

Much that is wrong in the world is a result of the inflated ego…the manipulation of ego.

It is ok to protest. It is not ok to force your protest on others. It is ok to voice your opinion. It is not ok to force others to accept it.

Many people have been cajoled and manipulated into believing they are always right and entitled. Once again, judgment has been interjected and declared true. People have been led to believe they have the right to what they have not earned. They have the right to subject themselves into other’s lives. It is this very concept that leads to socialism, communism and radicalization.

We have personal responsibility for our own power. It is an abuse of that power to give it away.

So why do people do so? Fear. Sometimes we fear our own power. Sometimes we fear that we do not know enough to handle it so we give it away to people who convince us they do have the knowledge. We let them take it and stoke our ego and quell our fear. We don’t see that it is our ego that is the fear and it has been falsely put to rest.

We are reminded today that we have nothing to fear. We are absolutely qualified to handle our own power and we should never ever give it away. Quiet the ego and listen to your spirit.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Quiet your ego and let your spirit control your power.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A day off.

-Many tasks done.

-Shopping done.

-A good book and early bedtime.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
