I Go AWandering
Paul Le Baron
urge to record my gratitude once more for all that has transpired
in my life experience will not be denied. Now I see that every
situation, every contact with another has contributed in some
way to a broader scope of understanding and wisdom. My journey
has provided a kaleidoscopic panorama of emotional color, from
blackness of despair and self-denial, through all the somber hues
of negativity, to vibrant rainbow tints of contentment, love,
and joy. Now, situated as I am in one of the most salubrious environments
on Earth, blessed by the love of six wonderfully expressive children,
together with the mother who bore them, and enriched by the association
of a host of gifted grandchildren along with countless friends,
I can truly affirm with the psalmist, - my cup runneth over.
before I move on, I want to share with you my vision for an easily
possible redemption of humanitys soul. The chaos and suffering
so rampant in the world of today can be transmuted into the colors
of Love simply by each person choosing to switch from thinking in
terms of individual separateness, with accompanying subjection to
the fears, doubts, and compulsions relevant to that fantasy, to
sincere recognition of being a unique cell in the body of humanity.
Fortunately there are many people who have already chosen to make
that change from soul-sickness to health promoting unity of purpose,
and their numbers are increasing rapidly. They are the ones who
are gradually restoring the global family to wholesomeness. When
enough others choose to do likewise the shift from the present state
of chaos to one of creative freedom will happen naturally.
key aspect of regeneration is that of dissolving the myths of scarcity
and separateness that have for ages numbed the collective heart
and stupefied the mind, leaving ego in control. To do this enables
the heart to resume its proper function as soul-guide and lover,
with mind and ego delighting to assume their valid roles as useful
tools for spiritual evolution.
vision for a family of man at peace with itself is based on the
natural inclinations we all have for sharing, co-operating, and
commingling with those we love. Embracing the realization of unity
allows love for all others to blossom in our hearts, and when fear
of scarcity is relinquished, sharing becomes a way of life. In that
atmosphere life-enhancing systems of harmonious relationships evolve
naturally. The turning point for each one of us is heartfelt gratitude
for all that is, and willingness to accept all people as precious
family members, valuing them as they are without prejudice or judgment.
There are three simple steps that can lift each of us into the joyous
atmosphere of freedom.
first is willingness to Let Go of the self-righteous views of separateness.
The second is Appreciation and Thankfulness for all things.
The third is patient Trust in the process.
my view, the chaotic conditions in the world today are similar to
the dissolution and rearrangement that takes place in a cocoon while
in the process of metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly, and
it is well underway.
