a house divided

 "A house divided against itself cannot stand." 
~abraham lincoln

"Lincoln as a statesman, and political philosopher, announced an eternal truth -- not only as broad as America, but covers the world." 
~william h. herndon

united we stand, divided we fall 

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand" 
~ jesus, matthew 12:25, luke 11:17, mark 3:25

division is the way of darkness in the world. darkness may not divide itself, as the invitation is for only more darkness. the only division darkness may hope for is the division of light : seeking to consume and suffocate. 

one spark may ignite an inferno.  

light is in us, indelibly. the very fact of our breath is resultant. the moment our lungs taste the freedom of life, our eyes see the light of divinity, and our oxygenated blood courses through our veins, is the moment each of us is imbued with care and responsibility : of and for ourselves, and of and for all others. 

should we allow it, division itself may consume us. we choose the time to unite, we choose the course of unity, and we choose the sharing of light among us. we may (also) choose division.

we all (may) share in the light of love with the divine : let us now share our light with all other beings : let us share love among us. the universe, which is source of divinity within us, is also the author of the laws which create the basis for balance in living life. there is no predilection for "good" or for "bad" here : that part is completely up to each one of us, individually and collectively. 

'fairness' is a human contrivance, and thus is created or destroyed by us. blessings are recognized or not (by us), but either way, we choose our ourcomes based on our own vision, and our own acceptance of them. we choose to be happy or to be miserable : 
it is no other being's job to make us happy - this is, strictly speaking, the provenance of our own thoughts. should we find ourselves 'happy,' it is because we choose to. should we find ourselves 'miserable,' it is because we choose to ... and the very good news is that if we have the courage to get beyond victimhood or luck, we (all) have the ability (given as a divine gift upon our birth) to change the course we (ourselves) have set ourselves upon. 

learning the lessons we are born to learn; and doing the work we (divinely) came here to do imbues us with this power. believe it or not, it is as 'simple' as choosing to change our perceptions.

"By the Law of Attraction, a good-feeling thought will bring more good-feeling thoughts and, in turn, things to feel good about. You will build momentum and train your subconscious mind to look for the thoughts that make you feel good." ~dr. wayne dyer.

what we bless, expands. ours alone is to choose to be a spark.

change only happens as it is chosen : choose.

we are all one.

peace to you, traveler ... namaste
