ONE SIMPLE STEP TO TURN EARTH INTO HEAVEN
Some days I get the feeling that I need to do something. The world is in great turmoil but the answer to all the problems is so simple. That is the first step is simple.
Before we can solve a problem, we need to identify it. This is hard to do when we are living in darkness. So the first step in solving the problem is to turn on the light.
Now, I may be talking over the heads of some who have been completely blinded from the spiritual world. Some think, “If you can’t see it, it does not exist.” If this is true, then there is no existence for a blind person and no spirituality to one who is spiritually blind.
To turn on a light, we must have a source of energy and something that can convert that energy to light. Therefore we add fire (the energy source) to a candle and we have light. In modern technology, we have electric power, either from a battery or a utility company. We convert that to light by plugging a lamp into the power source. Once the light is turned on, the darkness vanishes.
In the spiritual world, we need to discover the spiritual nature of things. We find that God is the source of spiritual light. When this light comes into the world, the darkness of evil is dispelled. But where are the spiritual lamps?
It turns out that we, ourselves, are the lamps and when we connect ourselves to the spiritual power, we can see clearly and can distinguish good from evil. All we need to do is to learn how to connect ourselves. To do this we need but turn to one simple verse that millions of children all over the world have committed to memory.
O SON OF BEING!
Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant.
Yes, love is the connector, and we are already half connected. God loves us. All we need to do is to love HIM back and the circuit is complete. The spiritual energy will flow through us and we will light up the world. The darkness of evil will be dispelled and we will see clearly what we must do to turn this world into a virtual Heaven.
