In New Zealand Easter is a time for holidays, probably the last before winter. This year it was wet and miserable for most of Easter. I travelled to a city called Rotorua which is a thermal city. Almost everything in Rotorua is tourist based, it is the second biggest tourist town in New Zealand, yet the government still don’t classify it as a tourist town and the shops have to close on public holidays!
Rotorua in a thermal city, which means there are lots of geothermal activities under the ground that break through into the air. There is a strong smell of sulphur in the air; they say that Rotorua is the only city in the world that you can fart in and no one will notice! You can walk down the street in certain areas and see boiling hot water bubbling out of a split between the road and the footpath.
But Rotorua is a manifestation of capitalistic practices too. There are hundreds of people who are homeless. Yet right across the road there is a ten storied building that is kept empty and unused, whilst people are sleeping on the streets!
The main problem with capitalism is the “I’m alright, Jack!” attitude of the capitalists. They think that because they are successfull, they can let many live like wild animals on the streets of cities. But according to all the Scriptures of the world they are not alright under spiritual law. As long as they live in luxury and other in the same city live in abject poverty they are held accountable in the next world! But of course capitalistic thinking only thinks in terms of the future in how much money they will “enjoy”.
Know this you capitalists/usurers, your time on earth is limited. Your life will be over in the twinkling of an eye (i know it seems strange, but it only takes about three weeks to get from 20 to 60 with hindsight!) and you will be standing in the next world being asked to explain your doings in this world. And it will be too late to go back and change a single deed! That is the hell in dying – seeing what evil your hands have wrought in this world (and know that doing mothing to help is the same as actively doing the negative deed – if you are not part of the solution then you are a part of the problem!!!). And that is the heaven in dying too- seeing what good your hands have done in this world to help others!
Of course most of us aren’t rich capitalists. And don’t want to be ether! Although we do crave for security! But security is only for a very few in the physical world of opposites. To get security you have to move to a place where it is available for all – the spiritual world of AND!(peace and prosperity are spiritual qualities, not physical qualities.)
People think that the spiritual plane is an airy-fairy place, but it’s not. It has very strict laws that must be followed to gain security! “ Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto (spiritual/whole)life, and few there be that find it.” Matt 7:14. The door is open to all but few find it! Why? Because we are looking for physical solulutions to spiritual problems. It’s a bit like a motorist looking for fuel for his caerr – he drives it into the lake to fill it up! WRONG!!! The entry to the petrol tank is a small hole and only petrol, not water (although materialist will argue that they are both liqids! True, but good luck with filling you car tank with water!), can be used! The same goes with the fuel for the spiritual world. We have to find the small filler hole in our spiritual car!
So how do we do this? By ASKING! Ask to be shown the small hole and once you’ve seen it, it will be easier to fill you spiritual vehicle with the right fuel – LOVE!
How do we ask? Not by thinking the question. Thinking is a physical process and the answer can’t be found by physical processses! The spiritual question must be based in a spiritual form of communication. Know there are two forms of spiritual communication. Speech (aloud) and writing (on paper). Speech is the first form of vibration, spiritual energy. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1. Everytime we speak something out loud it goes out into the universe as a vibration, to be answered by God. By asking God, ” if He exists and to connect with Him (remember God IS Love)” we will be heard and answered! “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Norhing airy-fairy about that promise, is there? It is as simple as asking out aloud, directly!
Don’t worry if you feel like a right fool asking. It is something new, that you haven’t done before and, depending how far away you are from the source (of Love) your answer may be subtle or dramatic. Mine was dramatic – but i was far far, far away. I have seen others experience it as easily as putting on a pair of socks or opening a newspaper!
My words were, “God, if you exist, please show me” Those seven words changed my life forever (and I do mean forever!).
Give it a try – what have you got to lose? Only your burdens, woes and empty heart!
happy belated Easter!
May Love, Detachment, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,
