THINKING IS not limited to acknowledged great minds. Viewing the
topics of the World Economic Forum was like screening thoughts which
often cross my mind as I share ideas with students and friends of God
Unlimited/University of Healing every year.
A MAJOR TOPIC AT the World Economic
Forum, held in Davos Switzerland in January this year, was finding
solutions to three major diseases in the world. The discussion
proposed billions of dollars could be spent to control their spread.
This included medicine, doctors and training in hygiene.
The simple solution for the world at
large is with a beneficial mental attitude toward any need. Indeed,
surround the people experiencing these negative effects with our/their
pure white light of love and wholeness wholeness results.
Does this seem too simple a solution?
Actually, it is not. It is the grandest and most important attitude
the world can take toward any of the circumstance it faces. When we
are taught to love our body, the temple of the living spirit, then we
respect it and bless it with our intelligent attitude and make wise
use of our physical self. As we do this, our body responds with
wholeness and purity, goodness and beauty, to know all that is
wonderful and good.
The concept is of a THIRD WORLD or
depressed economy to some areas of the globe. The easy way out for
humanity helping humanity, to relieve this condition of lack is to
give them money and substance. The world is a big family. When part of
the family is wealthy, the tendency is to help the other in the family
who are not so well off. However, the part of the family who are not
so well off will continue to be not so well off because they do not
know how to be wealthy. If the better off members of the family
offered the less well off opportunities to learn and to prepare
themselves to be better off, all would benefit. Otherwise, it is one
continual giving to the others who want more and do not appreciate
what is given to them because they do not know how to keep it coming.
Faith: A Glue For Society
THE FORUM noted that secular culture and
scientific discovery have severely challenged religious beliefs. It
asked, does religious faith remain the important glue for society? Is
faith more than dogma, a cultural choice? Why do so many of us have
such strong feelings about religion?
The tendency of the Forum was not to
alienate standard religious organizations but to feel that the role
they play is fundamentally beneficial to humanity as its unifying
glue. In the process of protecting religion, the benefit of a
"revised" religion was missed.
Historically the belief in "a"
God outside of man has caused a confusion in man beyond any
understanding given to him by "a" church. Always, we are
taught that if bad happens to us it is the "will" of
"a" God whom we have not propitiated properly. We have seen
the rich who were unscrupulous in manís sight being exceedingly
wealthy. We have seen people who have violated all of the
sensitivities of humanity and still been blessed with substance and
wholeness. It did not seem fair. Why would God bless such as they!
These are not new confusing thoughts.
The iterations continue because the church and man have enjoyed the
circus of a religion of miracles, a religion of awe and wonder, a
religion of magic, which only the prepared ones may perform.
The Forum did not pretend to have the
answers, but it offered a platform for intelligent global leaders to
consider new possibilities.
Many Themes In The Forum
AN ECONOMIC UPDATE entertained issues of
a global stock market available to all via the Internet and e-mail
actions. Questions such as: is it time for optimism or for caution in
the US stock market, are the economies in Europe and East Asia on safe
ground, can emerging markets survive another shock, what has happened
to the business cycle, is it indeed a new economy?
What is the future of global Earth, will
the universe continue to expand forever or collapse?
What about stress and our CEOs, our
global leaders, is science and medicine playing God, what can be done
about the environment, ecology, Internet and visions for the future?
Powerful ideas discussed by powerful
men, political leaders from around the world including President
Clinton, were on the agenda.
As I thoroughly read all of the material
offered and the bountiful remarks made by these "thinking"
world leaders I could come to but one conclusion:
You and I, the average person, the one
who is and are affected by what is going on in our world our universe
our unlimited being, we have a voice in today and tomorrow. We do not
need a lovely forum where we make public statements, for we have our
own powerful INNER FORUM where we speak our word and get results equal
to anything done by these masters of international, intergalactic,
interuniversal public relations.
We can be the candle in the darkness
whose light is seen everywhere. We can speak our word claiming
"peace on Earth," claiming wholeness and harmony for all
humankind, claiming all men hold each other in unconditional love.
With our selfawareness of our purity we create the world in which we
live fulfilled and fulfilling.
WE HOLD WORLD Economic Forums throughout
the world, wherever we may be, and we set in motion a universe of
peace, goodness and love. We do this when we unconditionally love our
self and all of our creation.
