Wise Words from Pope Francis

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“Even today we raise our hand against our brother… We have perfected our weapons, our conscience has fallen asleep, and we have sharpened our ideas to justify ourselves as if it were normal we continue to sow destruction, pain, death. Violence and war lead only to death.” 

— Pope Francis

On Sowing and Reaping

We have all heard, “you reap what you sow.”  But what does it mean, really?
 
You may have heard of the “Law of Attraction.”  These teachings are correct in that what you put out into the universe is what comes back to you.  It is Universal Law.    It works for everyone and does not depend on the intent of the user.  It works for those with altruistic motivations who only care about helping others and it also works for those with more self serving motives of accumulating power and monetary wealth.
 
Many times the Law of Attraction is associated with money.  And who wouldn’t like to attract more money to themselves?
 
But we are missing the point if we limit this Universal Law to just one aspect of life.  It can all be summed up in these simple words.  “You reap what you sow.”  Or “what you put out into the world comes back to you.”
 
We create our own reality using our thoughts, words and actions.  If we sow love with loving thoughts, words and actions we will reap love.  If we sow fear with fearful thoughts, words and actions we will reap fear.  If we sow lack with thoughts, words and actions of not having enough we will reap lack.  If we sow joy with joyful thoughts, words and actions we will reap joy.  If we sow sorrow with sorrowful thoughts, words and actions we will reap sorrow.  If we sow peace with peaceful thoughts words and actions we will reap peace.
 
Now our outward circumstances may not change, but when we change the way we look at them we change.  This is how we create our own reality.
 
Don’t over complicate this.  It really is that simple.  Now living it? That’s the hard part.  Emoji  It takes time, patience and practice.  But as you begin to see how you are attracting things you want as well as things you don’t want into your life you will want to keep trying to learn this skill.
 

 

 

It’s the Place In Between that we Fear

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins

It is not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear…It’s like being in between trapezes.  It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer.  There’s nothing to hold on to.” — Marilyn Ferguson

The Time of Transition

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins

“I know now that the Spirit is trying to birth something in my life when I find myself craving silence and darkness, when I find myself editing my circle down to just the trusted few whom I know will midwife me through this birth. It’s nothing to fear; it’s the time of transition.”
