Albert Einstein remarked that the thinking that got us to this point in time is insufficient to deal with what is before us now. The Master Key in Lesson 22 paragraph 1 states, “Knowledge is of priceless value, because by applying knowledge we make our future what we wish it to be. When we realize that our present character, our present environment, our present ability, our present physical condition are all the result of past methods of thinking, we shall begin to have some conception of the value of knowledge.” We as a human family have gotten to this point in time with our thinking , as a group not what each of us have accomplished individually, and what is before us as humanity will only be something other than the past when we collectively think different thoughts then the past gives us, what the past thinking has provided for humanity to think. While there have been numerous individuals, Og, Emerson, Jefferson, etc; who spoke thoughts of wisdom for all of us, it seems humanity (or the leaders) ignores the wisdom to plunge on blindly to the future given to mankind by our past thoughts. As my wife Robin recently said, “What if they gave a war and no one showed up to fight.” (except those leaders who say we should go to war) What if 10 million people walked peacefully to our capitol to say let’s not fight over there (Europe, Asia, the middle East, Antarctica, or anywhere). Let us become aware of the God in each of us.
I saw a video today of the police shooting a man with his hands in the air. They then proceeded to shoot into a car with three other people in it for several minutes. The people in the car were yelling , “Please stop shooting.” The police obviously weren’t trying to hit them with bullets because all of the shots into the car were at the roof. I was horrified to such a point I could not watch the complete video. I know from police reports no one else was killed. What if everyone who was stopped by the police held their hands in the air and said, ALL LIVES MATTER!
I am heart broken by this – all of it so unnecessary. What if 10 million people walked peacefully to our capitol to say let’s stop creating our police as an arm of the military. What if 10 million people walked peacefully to our capitol to say let’s give GOD’S LOVE a chance!
