Reading this was a bittersweet I was fortunate enough to grow in in one of those generations. When I tried to explain it to my daughter and my grandson I feel like I'm telling the Abe Lincoln walking to school story.

While I do believe in God not the biblical one but the Mother/Father universal Source that created All life as in order to have harmony in all things there needs to be balance.

I am not a new ager but rather an aware and awake spiritual being who feels we lost our divine magnificent power when we allowed ourselves to be separate from God/Source instead of connected by a spark of light each one of us carry equally as part of not separate.

Prayer is needed to call upon Source but all prayers cause a ripple effect of unity.

My point being that when we disconnect ourselves from God/Source and become less than our given loving divinity and unity Universally and beyond we also absolve ourselves of responsibility and powerlessness to collectively fix what we have broken on this planet in all areas.

Love each other with compassion and truth look within take responsibility for every choice you have made good or bad. Remember Source does not judge but rather experiences the lessons you came to learn are created by you for you.

Only when we stop separating ourselves from Source and creation will we unite and love this planet and each other back to peace on earth. It's not God/Source responsibility to fix this its OURS he instilled each of us with the gifts it has.

For all the staunch religious people rather than attack me with condemnation of the bible just even a tiny tiny bit look outside the box.

Love to ALL
