I have written several posts about the Nigerian kidnapped girls and have published none.
I wanted a way forward and none was coming forth. About the sixth writing, I finally realized that the event was exposing extreme fear of change.
The Blessing of Change
Change can bring great blessings. Change brought travel to the moon and all the by-products of that effort. Change brought vaccines and the death of many of the scourges of the earth such as polio and small pox. Change has brought agricultural practices that have resulted in most of us having access to more than enough food at all times.
Change can be very uncomfortable, but without it life cannot expand. Our mission is to grow who and what we are. This means we let go of limits from the past in order to go beyond self, family, society or cultural boundaries.
Facing the reality of “the good ole days” is the easiest way to do this.
The Good Ole Days
Take a good, long look at the past. Do you really want to go back to a time:
- when there was little medical or dental knowledge, or good health and medical practices;
- when fear of the powerful reined instead of a court system dedicated to fairness and justice for all;
- or, when myths and lies were generated about various peoples and couldn’t be verified because travel and communication were almost nonexistent?
Instead of romancing the past, find out how people actually lived. How did they get food, water, clothing and shelter? Few of us would willingly give up the ease with which we can get these necessities today in order to return to some glorified, fantasized past.
The Nigerian Kidnappers
The Nigerian kidnappers appear to have a longing to return to a long-ago past. I wonder if any of them have considered what that actually means, or if they know the true reality of their longed-for past.
I wonder if they realize that they are being used by evil. You see, evil seldom attacks the present, but always attacks what will be, especially if that future in any way stops its nastiness.
Overcoming Road Blocks
The fact that many of these captured women have chosen to become teachers, doctors and lawyers displays their desire to be of service to their families, communities and to Nigeria. Looking into the future and seeing how these women bring change to Nigeria one instantly understands why evil is shaking in its boots. It’s days are truly numbered and will soon end.
These women, like all of us who serve, are strong and powerful. All of us, including these women, will find a way to overcome every road block.
We remember that sometimes the best way to overcome something is to not challenge it, but to go around, over or under the block. Evil has a hard time fighting what refuses to engage it.
Walking around, over, or under evil is not simple or easy. We ask the angels to help.
Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
Many of us are faced with the challenge of overcoming something that is trying to stop us from expanding to something new and greater than what we are presently experiencing.
We recognize that sometimes when we stop resisting, the block instantly dissolves. We know that often, instead of challenging, the best way to stop a block is to go under it, or around it, or over it.
And, we, also, know that sometimes we have no choice but to stand and fight.
We accept your guidance in knowing the best actions to take. We feel your guidance at all times. We understand it and put it to good use.
We know we are surrounded by and thus protected by you. We know that evil cannot win, that no matter what it does, it fails. We, also, know that often we are the cause of its failure.
We rejoice and give thanks for your continual guidance, presence and protection.
Thank you, angels of all of us.
And so it is.
