The Empowerment Column 2016: Did We Light a Fuse?
By Rev. Thabiti
Las Vegas Informer
To some it may seem like the fuse is already lit because there is a higher degree or greater sense of intensity. The World of Life is now evolving at an accelerated pace. We either need to keep up or we will get left behind. The intensity is so extreme that we are seeing more and more anger, terror, anguish, rioting and violence and looting. Is it possible that we are seeing the lighting of a fuse? Are we seeing that if we don’t extinguish the spark soon we will have to face an inferno later? Is there something we can do to stop the inevitable explosion that’s already beginning to percolate?
Here are 3 things we can do:
The first thing we can do is to not feel helpless or self-pity. We are not victims of anything unless we say so. Our ancestors would simply go inside the cave and wait until the stormed passed. Afterwards if everything they built was destroyed they kept going without complaint and rebuild, except now newer, better and stronger.
The second thing we can do is change to improve what we can and accept what we can’t. We must accept Life, just the way that it is and just the way that it is not. The world is an innocent mirror reflecting our attitude, perception and belief. This is why anyone with a bad attitude is guaranteed to be miserable.
The third thing we can do is not panic. We cannot control everything but we can control our response to anything and how we respond to anything that happens reveals the truth about our level or spiritual maturity.
All great things that happen in life are preceded by chaos. This is why the proverb says ‘Don’t get too distracted by the birth-pains or else you will miss out on the beauty of the birth that is also happening.’ This means that there is something good on the way but we must look beyond how things may seem at first.
The stars and the planets have been here beyond the number of years we can count. Whatever this Greater Something is that governs our Universe is so perfect that the sunrise is never late. The Giver and Provider of All Things, has given us more than we know what to do with. We have more books than we can read and more opportunities than we can learn about. We have more air than we can breathe and more water than we can drink.
One thing that is for sure is there is always will be something we can choose to be afraid of or fear. Human beings have a natural tendency to fear things we don’t understand that’s similar to the example of flicking a lighter in front of a caveman and seeing the scare in his face.
Once we reach or arrive into a realization that we live in a spiritual reality then, we can relax in knowing that the first law of our spiritual reality is – Spirit will either give you what you want or something better.
This week’s message is dedicated to my friend Tony Fererra of Las Vegas. Tony is an inspirational super achiever to the nth degree. If I start talking about all that he has accomplished over the years we’d be here all day. I saw Tony last week at the Largest Mixer and he brought me over to his booth and just treated me like family. He showed me not only his super accomplishment but also shared his vision. I just want to send this big shout out to a good friend and to whom I am so proud of. Keep up the great work Tony, there are many more of us rooting for you than you can imagine.
