Tonight on Health & Healing Chronicles we will talk about a malady that’s plaguing families and communities across America. It affects sick babies, ambitious college students, pregnant mothers and heroes who fight to keep us safe from harm.
In her bestselling book “Divine Compensation” written by Metaphysician Marianne Williamson, she responds the question: Why would a loving God allow such atrocities to happen to our babies and those who can’t care for themselves? Her response in essence is; it’s not God that’s not loving, but we who have hearts of stone.
In fact we expend great energy throwing rocks and hiding our hands as millions of our brothers, sisters, mothers and daughters suffer and even die, every single minute of the day. The images of starving babies in third world countries we quickly dismiss on television may appear to be a distant twist of fate; but what about the more than 1-million homeless and hungry children who walk through the halls of schools in America each day?
The damage caused by poverty to our families and our communities is immeasurable, but are we powerless? Is everyone freaking insane? Is there a cure for the mental illness that is disguised as drive or business savvy in our world? Will we ever return to love?
I concur with Marianne Williamson that it is not God who is not loving. God expresses itself through us. We were created in the image and likeness of God, so the question we should ask ourselves is; Are we reflecting The Divine in our words, actions and deeds toward those closest to us?
I’d like to offer 3 suggestions for realigning yourself with divine love. Practicing these daily will allow you to tear down the illusions and bring you back home to your heart.
- Acknowledge that you have been tricked into believing that your loved ones who reached out to you in their time of need were problems and not broken human beings.
- Forgive yourself for falling.
- Rededicate yourself to reasonable service to humanity, which includes YOU.
You see, self-care is the manifestation of self-love and loving humanity is loving ourselves. We are one! Every hour, every minute, every second of the day, we breathe the same eternal breath of life.
During this Women’s Herstory Month, we honor Marianne Williamson, Oprah Winfrey and the many dynamic women who use their international platforms to remind us that we are healed by the power of divine love and that the illusion of lack and separation from the source only has power when we believe fear over love.
