It's true, of course, humanity has long since lost our sacred connection with Source.
Connection with Source(the Earth, God, Creation) on an intimate basis is our birthright as humans. Somewhere along the way we lost it, and in doing so severely compromised the future of life on Earth. Simply stated: We are out of control. We have forgotten who we are; what our mission is, was, and still is. Most of us today are not even aware (emotionally, where you feel it) that all life is One. Whatever we do to another, whatever we do to the Earth, to our atmosphere, we do to ourselves. We are AWAL from the spiritual reality central to our being.
There is Hope, and it doesn't take intense intellectual prowess to comprehend and began to practice.
We are all connected though our hearts. And it's our true connection; to ourselves, to others, to the Earth(our mother), to God and to Creation itself. Get in touch with your Heart, and teach yourself to stay centered there. In this powerful vision of Creation the Heart becomes the final decision maker.
As we all get going on this pathway we are going to lighten up a lot. And, in so doing, will began to make the kind of decisions designed to dramatically lessen much of the pain and suffering we are currently creating on this planet.
