(I may have typed this, but it was inspired by the Holy Spirit. I know it changes in point of view, but I left it alone. It may not be grammatically correct, but the message is what it is... and that's really all that matters.)
When will we learn war isn't the answer? When will we learn to turn to love? When will we see that hurting each other is only hurting ourselves?
If you cut your finger does it not hurt? That's what it's like when you kill each other- it's like cutting off an appendage. We are all one body living on this earth. When sickness overtakes us, we all suffer. When we are at war, we all suffer. When we abuse, neglect, mistreat, disrespect, belittle or harm each other in any way, we are harming ourselves.
Even with a pandemic raging, hurricanes tearing through the world, wildfires burning the very life from the planet and leaving behind charred remains as a reminder, we still fight. We still hate. We still live as if we are the only ones - and for what? This thing we call power? Those groups who take over countries for the benefit of power, which equates to land and money, are doing so at the human race's expense. Groups who try to take control over others are very short-sighted and see only the power they think they will gain. Nothing is stronger that God, than Mother earth, than the collective human race as a whole. Yet, there are people, many of them, who don't see that . They only see what their illusion of power will bring to them. We are all meeting the same end one day. We are all going to die and cross over in the next world. It is there you will answer. So, all the fighting for material things, for land, money and everything it buys, is in vain. It is for temporary pleasure and not for true joy.
True joy only stems from love. The love of our Creator and the loving of each other, ourselves, the earth and the creatures upon it. True joy doesn't come from destruction and harm. Yet, there are those of us who always think it does. This falsehood is handed from one generation to another and spreads like a cancer. It destroys the human race and those who are blind to God and think they are the controllers of all are living in a world of complete deception and utter chaos, lacking love and respect for anything but themselves.
Wake up people! Don't you see what's going on around you? This is a time, a great time for reaching out and helping your fellow human beings! This is a time of great strife, of upheaval. This is a time when something much more powerful than you think you are is forcing you to look at yourselves, to examine your soul, to find deep down what you've buried underneath false happiness... and love each other. Find the love God planted inside each and every one of you and start helping each other amidst all the upheaval on the earth. Take care of yourselves and the planet. Save yourselves from your own wrath!
You are your worst enemy, yet so many of you are so short-sighted you don't see it. You kill over land with lines you put there as boundaries. We've been doing this since the beginning of time and it has never, ever ended well. It never will. If that, with everything that's taking place on this planet, is not enough to wake us up, what is? The end of it?
Take all you hold dear that's real, made of love, a gift from God, and treasure it. That is your real treasure. You find it in yourself, your loved ones, your fellow man. You find joy in the beauty of your soul, this earth, the animals upon it, the majestic, stunning landscapes, sunsets, the very miracle of life itself. What fills your heart with love is your soul, which is actually God inside of you. It is the light that shines on others and brightens this world. It is the light that enables you to care for each other. Love each other, pray for each other, hold out your hand in love, not battle, towards each other. Love is the answer, It always has been and it always will be.
You are in a time of the greatest wake up call there has ever been. You've got a plague on the earth, you've got wars, fires, destructive acts of nature surrounding you. What more do you need to realize that fighting against yourselves instead of joining together and loving each other, and surviving, is the answer? What more has to happen to force you out of your egos and into the light and love of God? The choice is yours and it's quite clear that it's not an easy one to make for many people. They still choose to hate, to battle over something that will be there long after they are gone and never will be theirs because IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE!
WAKE UP! LOVE! STOP THE FIGHTING AND INSTEAD TURN TO LOVING AND FIGHTING TOGETHER WITH THE COMMON CAUSE OF SAVING EACH OTHER AND THIS PLANET. ASK YOURSELVES, WHAT MORE IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO REALIZE THAT YOU ARE ALL MUCH STRONGER WHEN YOU JOIN TOGETHER IN LOVE AND LIGHT THAN YOU ARE ALONE OR IN SELF PROCLAIMED SMALL GROUPS THAT USE DESTRUCTION TO GAIN WHAT YOU THINK IS POWER BUT IS NOT AND NEVER WILL BE?
PLEASE WAKE UP. PLEASE TURN TO GOD, TO LOVE, TO EACH OTHER AND SAVE YOURSELVES AND THIS PLANET FROM ITS END.
Pray for love. Turn to love. BELIEVE. BE LOVE.
With Love and in Prayer,
Ellen M. DuBois
