Your favorite mystic was a bit lazy last week and didn’t prepare a good post. Actually, not so much lazy as despondent. The political situation in the world has a way of bringing me down – although, it really needn’t do so.
It is true that the current occupant of the White House is a corrupt moron and likely to get the West into a shooting war, or worse – an economic war that turns Western nations into vassal states of certain Eastern powers. And the various, current, Prime Ministers of Canada, the U.K., New Zealand and, especially, Australia likewise appear to be corrupt morons and enemies of the people. The 27 unelected Commissars of the European Union, along with just about every elected (selected) President, Prime Minister and Chancellor of the European nations are no better and, in most cases, worse. As are the rest of the leaders of Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America and all affiliated or non-affiliated islands and such. What can be said of the U.N., NATO, and the other dictatorial organizations that deem themselves in control of the world?
It’s not enough that they all seem to despise their own, individual, nations – they also seem to act with a collective agenda to crush the spirit of Humanity, in general, and, specifically, to destroy Western civilization.
This is not something we should find surprising; the Devil has been in control of all the kingdoms of the world for thousands of years. What’s different is that it seems like in the past 50 years or so, the efforts to subjugate humanity have been ramped up considerably.
Yet, we should not despair – least of all, your favorite mystic. We know all this, and we also know that the Earth itself belongs to God and all the human and, perhaps, non-human inhabitants on the planet that want a REAL life are welcome to enter the Kingdom of God – a Kingdom that is not of this world and, thus, is beyond the control of the Devil.
The political leaders are doing what they have to do to achieve their wicked goals – this should not concern us. Let them do what they must in the time available to them. Certainly we, on the path, must continue to exist IN the world – living and walking on the planet. However, spiritually, we should remain apart and not be OF the world.
Let them do their thing while we continue to do ours.
Let us seek first and with vigor the Kingdom of God and let all the rest work itself out.
