I thought I would share this message of unity by clarifying our countries "past' so that WE CAN continue to move in the direction that WE ARE presently on.

To Whom it may Concern :
                                        Here is a excerpt from a book-  Author Neale Donald Walsh. I just had to share this with everyone. This book ( Conversations with God) has answered so many questions about OUR life and world, it has given me a peace and understanding that has touched me deeply.  I thought I would share the wealth and hope to inspire you ALL at this great moment  in OUR  Nations and worlds transformation back to all that is and shall be again......

- " The Earth Nation you call the United Staes, for example, has long thought of itself to be a Nation " Under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for ALL".  It is not a coincidence that this nation rose to become the most prosperous on Earth. It is also not suprising that this nation is gradually losing all that it has worked so hard to CREATE- for this nation seems to have lost its vision.
             The terms " under God, indivisible", meant just that- they expressed the Universal Truth Of unity; Oneness : a Matrix very difficult to destroy. But the Matrix has been weakened. Religious freedom has become religious righteousness bordering on religious intolerence. Individual freedom has all but vanished as individual responsibility has disappeared.
            The notion of individual responsibility has been distorted to mean " every man for himself'.  This is the new philosophy that imagines itself to be harkening back to the Early American tradition of rugged individualism.
            But the original sense of individual responsibility upon which the American vision and the American dream was based found its deepest meaning and its highest expression in the concept of Brotherly Love.
            What made America great was not that every man struggled for his own survival, but that every man accepted individual responsibility for the survival of ALL.
            America was a nation thatb would not turn its back on the hungry, would never say no to the needy, would open its arms to the needy and the homeless, and woul;d share its abundance with the world.
            Yet as America became great, Americans became greedy. Not ALL, but many. And, as time went on, more and more.
            As Americans saw how good it was possible to have it, they sought to have it even better. Yet there was only on way to have more and more and MORE. Someone else had to have less and less and LESS.
            As greed replaced greatness in the  American character, there was less room for compassion for the least among the people. The less fortunate were told it bwas their " own damn fault" if they didn't have more. After all, America was the land of opportunity, was it not?  No one except the less fortunate found it possible to admit that Americas opportunity was limited, institutionally, to those already on the inside track. In general, these have nots included many minorities, such as those of certain skin clor and gender.
          Americans became arrogant internationally as well. As millions starved accross the globe, Americans threw away enough food each day to feed entire nations. America was generous with some, yes- but increasingly her foreign policy came to be an extension of her OWN vested interests. America helped others when it served  America to do so. ( That is , when it served Americas power structure, Americas richest elite, or the military machine that protected thos elite _ and their collective assets.)
          Americas FOUNDING ideal - Brotherly Love - had been eroded. Now, any talk of being " your brothers keeper " is met with a new brand of Americanism - a sharp mind toward what it takes to hold to ones own, and a sharp word to any among the less fortunate who would dare ask for their fair share, for their greivances to be redressed.
         Each person MUST take responsibility for herself and himself - that is undeniably true. But America - and your world - can truly work only when every person is willing to stand responsible for ALL of you as a WHOLE. "


I put this up because I believe and Know that WE have the golden opportunity right NOW to once again UNITE and become " Our Brothers and Sisters Keepers". WE ARE on the path as much work is still to be done......

 I think during these economic times this might help some :
     The incentive to suceed, make the most in ones life, should not be just economic or material reward. It is misplaced there. This mis-placed priority is what has created all these problems we are now seeing worldwide.  It would serve us all well, individually and collectively, to re-member WE ARE ALL ONE.
         " If WE all decided " we are all one" we would cease treating each other the way we do.

         " Theres ENOUGH FOR ALL -  If we decided that there was enough, we would finally share everything with everybody.

        It is ALL very simple, just not easy, lol, we are on our way, I beg you ALL to participate any which way YOU CAN. Thanks! )

As you say, Serge, we must see ourselves clearly on the path of Love and Healing, collectively. Your incredible focus on this fact, and your unfailing diligence as helpful reminder, is invaluable. Thank you.
