The oil spill in the Gulf has a lot of people worried. I'm not going to add to that by repeating our concerns. Instead, I invite you to consider a higher perspective.We have known since the 1970's that it was time to switch from oil to renewable sources of energy. The problem is that requires a major shift - and change is difficult. Usually, we don't want to do it! We put it off. Again, and again, and again... but that's okay, because the opportunity for change doesn't go away. It just keeps growing! Eventually, what needs to happen always does. One way or another. If we don't learn our lessons the easy way, then we have to learn them the hard way. If we don't learn our lessons the hard way, then we have to learn them the HARDER way. What is ours to learn will be taught. Eventually we shall surrender to what was inevitable all along. The oil spill in the Gulf is one gigantic wake-up call. Look at it that way and consider it good news.
The spill is just one more part of the grand Divine Plan now unfolding. All our old power systems, based upon greed and fear, are falling away around the globe. At the moment, it's painful. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes it takes a good deal of pain to dislodge us from the familiar.
If and when the spill crosses your mind, keep it elevated in your consciousness. See it as an agent for much-needed, positive CHANGE. Hold the power of GOOD in your mind. Think of all the people who are finally - really - waking up to the need for releasing our dependence on oil. Think of the bonds that will form when hundreds of people answer the call to action, coming out to mop up.
We have a mess in the Gulf... It heralds a sustainable future!
Keep it clean.
All is well.
