Don’t let it get you down

Life sucks! That’s for sure, especially the last three years of the Bush regime. I can’t remember another time when the national and world outlook was so bleak. The suffering of so many persons especially due to economic despair and cutbacks, the death and absence of loved ones due to a senseless war, the erosion of the values this country stood for, there are so many things to get a person down.

But this too shall pass. Hopefully next years election will change things for the better. But remember, no matter which party rules, there will always be problems, things that drag us down. It’s just a matter of degree. We live in the material world, a place of birth, death, disease and old age. These things cannot be avoided. We have to struggle just to survive. Yet we are really pure spirit souls that cannot be killed, do not age, are not born and do not get ill. We are eternal and untouched by the actions of material life. We falsely identify with the material body and its world. When we do so, we suffer. When we stop misidentifying, our suffering is reduced. As long as we are in this body, there will be suffering, but when we attain enlightenment we see a bigger picture and do not take things so personally or see them as being so serious.

We can also take comfort in knowing that there is a higher power behind this material creation which is loving and has our best interests at heart. If we can align our consciousness with that higher power which permeates all things and surrender our lives to serving that power, we are assured of attaining ultimate liberation. Don’t let the world get you down. Tap into the eternal knowledge and bliss that is available to you right now. Celebrate and enjoy life! It’s all a matter of perspective and how you choose to focus your consciousness.

Peace and joy,

Steve
