 Confucius 

 

          Please, my dear ones, take a moment and ask yourself if what you are living is what you truly desire. Ask yourself if the life you have created for yourself is the life hat would resonate through your dreams and into the eternity of peace, joy and love.

          Good morning, I AM Confucius, and I AM here to welcome you to a time when honor and freedom are the words for the day. I would like to present for you a summary of what your world looks like today, and then I will give you the feelings that make it seem as though it is something it is not.

          First there is the idea that capitalism is rampant in the world. There is only one set of finance, and that is the set that carries with it an idea of debt. This is the way your world of finance operates. It is a world of giving over your power to the ones who wield the highest interest on the money you are indebted to.

          Next I suggest that there is a great deal of love that is running through the avenues of life in these days. Look at the nuances of portrayals on the television screens. Is there not much love and joy shown there? Are not people loving one another and talking of peace and surveying some things with joy and laughter?

          And look at the world of medicine. There are more remedies for illness and distresses than ever before in the history of mankind, and yet people are continually in need of these remedies.

          Another field I would like to address is that of education. Are not the schools of the day teaching the students some things? When a teacher stands in front of a class and tells them that they must not utter the words Merry Christmas, and Jesus the Blessed Savior, then are they not teaching them something?

          I present to you only a portion of what is being lived in your world today. Do you feel that I have represented your world accurately? And why is that; have I not judged your world in an accurate manner?

          Ah, that is it, you say; I have not judged. Have you? Have you seen these things in a way that can bring a deeper understanding of what the world really is, of how you have created your world? I AM not pointing fingers, or making accusations; I merely am pointing out that judgments and perspectives can give a person two different ideas about how their world looks.

          Once these ideas are worked out and seen with clarity, then you can begin to alter your world and create it to be exactly what your dreams for a perfect life represent. You can then go about the activities and energies of power to create your life in a way that brings you peace, joy, and love every moment, every day.

          There once was a man who took it upon himself to stand in judgment of what others around him would like in their world. He set about creating castles and richness of clothing and furniture and vehicles by which to get around. He created vast gardens of beauty and lined lakes with flowers and walkways and benches, and created parks where children could play.

          Then one day he saw that the people were not smiling and hung their heads whenever they were out and about. He realized that they seldom were out of their homes, and they gave him barely a nod when they passed him by on the street. He pondered and couldn’t figure why they seemed so unhappy, when he had given them their Garden Paradise.

          Then one day a child came up to him as he sat on a park bench. This child saw the furrowed brow and sat at his side. With a smile the child said, “Do you not want to play with me? We can go to that sandpile over there that you have so lovingly provided, and we can each build a castle of our liking.”

          The man smiled and took the child by the hand. They skipped over to the place of creation, and soon they were busily, happily building a sand castle of their own. After a few minutes, the man saw that the castle the child was building was very simple, and lacked the grace of his. So he proceeded to help the child build a finer castle. He said, “I can help you build a fine castle, and one you can be proud of.”

          The child removed his hand from his and offered, “But sir, I am having so much fun creating my own. Would you not allow me my own expression of what I desire? To me it is not how grand the castle is, but how I feel creating it. It is a part of me, and in that I AM the Creator. That is what builds strong men and women, my father says. And my mother always lets me do what I want as long as I follow the teachings she gives me about how to be safe and happy and creative.”

          The man was taken aback. How could this child have so little regard for his assistance? Is he not the elder one, the one who knows all about building a better world? Then a small voice reverberated in his ear, and he sat up, renewed with a wise thought. This is how I got to be this way today. My parents allowed me to be all I could be, with their wise guidance. Now I see what I have been doing; I have put a stop in their creativity, though I love the people so.

          Then the man stood up and drew the child to him. He whispered in his ear that he was going over to the soda stand over there to fetch a bottle of sweet strawberry soda. Would he like some? The child accepted the gift, and as the man hurried away, the child smiled and went on with his creating. The man returned and instead of sitting in the sand and assisting the child, he sat and watched as the child turned his castle into the perfect one that represented the dreams that the child stored in his heart. He saw the pillars form under his fingers, and he saw the many windows take shape with the fineness of a child in perfection. He knew that the irregularities did not matter, that they were a perfect match for the path of life. They were the rungs of the ladder on the way to the heights anyone can achieve.

          Now look at your world with emotion. See what the world that you live in feels like when you apply emotions to the facts. Does it transform your world? What happens when you change your emotions when you look at your world? Does that make a difference? How do you feel when you see that the love that is represented all over the world is the love of an oppressed people? Does that compute, or does that not make sense to you?

          How does your world look when you see that everyone is full of love, a love so deep that they give their lives for one another? Does that make you see that there is nothing in this world that is not love? Give yourself another perspective this day, and see how beautifully, or how sadly your day goes. Your world is of your creation, and to deny that is to deny your heritage.

          I shall go now and sit in the park, for there is a magical creation taking place. There is a transformation building before my eyes, and it is like nothing I have ever seen. I honor it, and I marvel at the love behind it, for it is being created in the Spirit of love and freedom of expression that The Creator has endowed upon all of existence.

          I invite you to do the same, and love every moment of it.

 

Thank you dear Master Confucius,

Love, Nancy Tate
