Petals of the Infinite

I need the dialogue, the conversation and communion with kindred spirits to come to peace with all of this. And I need to take the time for my spiritual self.

It is not an immediate process. It begins with resentments, moves to fear, comes to understandings, and finally integrates with inner self. Then it recycles and moves through the entire pattern again and again.

It is, in essence, the same spiritual process that every other issue in our lives is.

 It may seem bigger, monolithic, insurmountable, but it is still the inner life coming to peace within itself.

I look at the effects, the consequences, gigantic in their implications, the implied war and conflict, the waste of money, the drain of human energy. It is all a psychic event within me.

Yes, it has existence outside myself. But the inner effect is the spiritual issue. Resolve things within and the outside becomes manageable.

So, my response is to go into the stillness. I will return again and again until the soul flower within blooms with the beautiful petals of the infinite, the flower that reaches into the infinite, the divine stem that rises into the thousand petaled lotus.

The spiritual healing that is needed in the world will not be done by politicians.

It is all too evident that there is not a shred of spiritual value in our political process. Government actions are created by politicians who are driven by financial commitments and obligations. Money determines the outcome of virtually everything political. Spiritual values are a part of the manipulative process.
