SOMETHING TO PONDER

While my mother and I were having a discussion, she asked me a question that I am still pondering. She asked what I thought could have happened to the many abandoned babies fathered by our military men from previous wars like WWI and II, Korean, or Vietnam. She said so many were probably outcast by their communities as being half breeds or whatever term one would use to describe a person not of full blood of any particular race. She knew some of the military men that were responsible for new life overseas that had to leave them behind when they returned to the United States. My mother said that they would be grown now and with children or grandchildren of their own. She just wondered how they felt as they grew up without their American fathers. Could this be the cause of so much global social unrest? Is the current state of affairs the result of what American military men did while away fighting a war to protect their country?

So often we fail to look at our contributions to disharmony. But what about these babies who are now grown men and women. What did they experience as children of absent fathers? Fathers, some of whom may not have even known they left a pregnant woman behind. My mother said she heard of special places for these children where they were outcast from their original families. They were abandoned twice, once by their father and next by their family of origin. To think on the reality of this and the possibility of it, is worth time to ponder.

The children may have grown up thinking where is the justice in this situation that I had no control over nor was involved in. These same children may have grown up filled with hate and anger, or with feelings of despair, non-acceptance and isolation. How did we, as Americans, deal with this in the past? Did we attempt to resolve this issue? Did we turn a blind eye to this situation? Do we dare recognize its possible existence now?

Just something to ponder!

MELT DOWN

August 26th

 

In preparing certain metals it is necessary to melt them down to achieve the purest form of the metal. The treasure is inside the precious metal.

There are times when we humans must go through a melt down to achieve our purest precious state of Higher Consciousness. There may be layers of negative build up residing in our thoughts. We may have corrosion in our expectations. Rust may have eaten away at the core of our perceptions of life and living.

Let us prepare for the melt down. Begin by uncovering all the stuff that resides on the surface and then dig deeper. Change that frown that has served to keep people away from you into a warm welcoming smile. Take careful study of how you react and interact with people. Start warming up the pot.

Lets get a little deeper, are there still hurts and pains from the past that you have not forgiven? Will you now release the person and events from that storehouse of negativity? Will you replace the memory with thoughts of love and acceptance?

And now let us go even deeper. Still hear the deafening words of those that belittled you and made you feel less than a person? Are you still angry that those mean spirited people were able to do that to that small defenseless child? Forgive them. Forgiveness is for you not them. Send them prayers of peace and blessings.

And deeper still, abandoned or abused as a child? Not encouraged, never a positive word spoken to you, never noticed as an individual? You are now fully grown and can forgive and release. You can choose to love and live in harmony with your thoughts and feelings.

Now the pot is at the boiling point. Step in fully knowing the pure essence of your beauty that will be brought forth from the fire, the big meltdown. Treasure and appreciate your glory and splendor. Own your life with respect and dignity. God has blessed you and no human can take that away from you. Yes you may give it away to someone however no one can take it from you.

Rejoice in Who You Are. A precious and rare Jewel in God’s Kingdom.
