War and Peace...helping God out

"It's interesting that the path to peace often is war. We, like you, don't agree that it's making things better, but we don't think they're wrong; and we understand the thinking behind it. And if you get involved in every disagreement of every point of Consciousness, your life's just going to be in a scramble. Finally you have to say,"This isn't about me. I didn't wage this war. I didn't pick this war. I don't understand this war. I'm not going to think about this war, and I'm not going to use it as my excuse to not feel good any more." Abraham

So, as with all things, be it war or rumors of war, be it political genres, be it anything that has the power to register within us as something unwanted, the key to our living a life of peace and joy is to simply not focus upon it. Granted, this might be unavoidable for some within our society as circumstances might seem to bring something that engenders fear or distain into our laps, but probably for the majority of us we have to almost go out of our way to find a something that as we focus upon it, engenders an emotional response that doesn't feel good. Are we here upon the screen of life to feel bad or good? If good and joy-filled, then can't we help this process along a bit?

A preacher was visiting a family for Sunday chicken dinner and he had a very large and obvious boil on the front of his neck. A child finally asked him about it and was told that God send it to him so that he might suffer. The child thoughtfully said, "Then, why don't you button the collar button and help God out?" Are we here upon the screen of life to feel bad or good? If good and joy-filled, then what can we focus upon that "help God out?"

Shortage and Lack

"There is no shortage. And any attention to shortage of something wanted will always produce negative emotion within you because your guidance is letting you know that you have strayed from your broader basic understanding of abundance and Well-Being. Whether you are focused upon the shortage of money?or seeing yourself as having only so many years to live (and so each day that is expended is one day closer to the end of your years)?that feeling of decline is contrary to your broader understanding of the Eternal nature of your Being." Abraham

I agree that practically everything that surrounds us that first appeared to our vision speaks of some degree of shortage, and therefore for many it is an unconscious player in their life. Sort of like the person who grew up in the depression of the 20's and throughout their life never could spend and enjoy what was accumulated...only to will it to their children who indeed knew how to spend and enjoy! If we can wrap our minds around the impossibility of the concept or word shortage existing at the core of a Universe that only knows abundance and plenty, we can then start to shift our focus to it to this Truth and allow the Law of Consciousness/Attraction to do its work as we are always drawn to the manifestations of our focus. If what is being reported in the news or heard in conversations around you is unsettling as it appears to make shortage the current truth de jour, change the channel or step out of the conversation. Learn to "listen" to how you are feeling, it will always tell us whether or not we are in sync with our higher self.
