I am sure there will be friends of mine that will dispute this post. But it's ok. We are all on our own journey of life and are many times afraid of voicing an opinion on subject matter that has purposely been protected and marked as off-limits.
Each and every one of todays world religions claim that they are the true one. They have the only true god. That they have received the revelation of Truth and everyone else is wrong.
Well my friends, after many years of deep research, I have found that all of the ancients had one thing in common ... it's what Joseph Campbell called the "Hero's Journey.” It's a story of US. It's OURstory ... not just HIStory.
Now back to my thought for today ...
The Messiah is the expected one. A universal and recurring theme in all World religion. The Messiah is the long awaited World saviour, the bringer of peace and the unifier of humankind.
Also known as the return of Christ to Christians, the Kalki to Hindus, Imam Mahdi to Muslims, Maitreya to Buddhists and the Saoshyant to Zoroastrians. Who or what is this Messiah?
If you study and research all the ancient wisdom that was once the common belief system at the very foundation of every civilization that has come and gone, you will find the Messiah within us all.
It is an essential archetype of self, and an aspect of God which lies dormant in the depths of our being, waiting for the right conditions to awaken and manifest itself. This archetype is the ultimate human potential and also an awesome source of creative and transformative energy that has the power to reshape our lives and literally change the World.
Indeed, these are perilous times in which we live, and like no other time in history there is definitely a planet to be saved. In present times and like no other time before, humankind is being brought together in an emerging one world order, the so called global village.
Never before has there been such a need for peaceful resolution of conflicts, clashes and disputes that this. Global merging of the human race will be inevitable. Truly the world needs the intervention of the World saviour(s) and the World peace maker(s).
It is up to us to save the World and it is up to us to help bring about peace on this planet. It is foolish to wait for a supernatural or extra-terrestrial agency to do this on our behalf. Peace, harmony and a safer World will only come about through our own actions. Therefore, the time has come to awaken the Messiah within.
God, The Absolute, The All There Is, The Source, Creator, Grand Architect ... whatever you choose to call it ... can only work through US. WE are the ones that can bring about change, and truly bring people together is love, peace, and harmony.
Just a thought ...
