Navigating a Troubled World
Author: Greg Tharpe
Is the world becoming a more dangerous, racist and evil place to live? Violent people and weather are seemingly becoming more destructive in the world. It seems as if almost every day, week, month and year, death and despair is happening more often. The truth is that violence and natural disasters have always been happening, but with the advancement of technology, cell phone video and social media it is being recorded and viewed more.
“For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.” [Psalm 27:5]
Is it possible to be safe in this world? It is understandable that many people think that the right to bear arms is the solution to safety. But, what good will arms do you when you are in the midst of an earthquake or hurricane or when someone is randomly shooting and killing and you have no chance to defend yourself. It is the right to bear arms and automatic weapons of mass destruction that causes sick people to take the lives of innocent victims.
Why is all of this craziness happening in the world? Are we reaping what we are sowing? Believe it or not, there is a reason behind everything. Just because you don’t understand something, there is still an underlying reason. In other words, there is a spiritual reason behind the injustice, crime and violence, racism, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, climate change and global warming that we are experiencing. “Life is not happening to us; life is responding to us.” Rhonda Byrne
Are things going to get better? Believe it or not things are not going to get better until the mass consciousness of the world gets better spiritually which will happen, but it is going to take more evil, destruction and pain to cause this change. This is humanly sad, but spiritually necessary. “Things don’t happen to you, they happen for you.” Dr. Faith Kurtz Shell
So get ready for more of the same. Everything that happens in the world is the byproduct or reflection of the mass consciousness of the people of the world. When the world is not in divine order, negativity is the catalyst for personal change and the shift in consciousness that is necessary for growth, transformation and evolution.
You may be asking; how do I know this? This is something that we all know; however, many are just not spiritually conscious enough to see it. As the bible says, “everything hidden will be revealed.” Some evolved souls know this simply by being in tune with higher intelligence, it is divine revelation from within. For those who have read the bible, enlightened men talked about the troubles of the world thousands of years ago.
Since we now know that the evil and destruction is a given until change and mass spiritual awakening takes place, especially with the education system, government officials and decision makers; what should you do to be safe?
First, know that God or your Higher Intelligence can protect you from harm. For example, some people who had planned to be at a place or city where something catastrophic happened were intuitively led not to go or be there. If they had gone or stayed as planned they would be dead. Something came up or their gut instinct told them not to go or to leave.
Our divine intelligence is always providing guidance to keep us safe. You can have this intuition or divine guidance protect you. But you have to remove the blockage to get connected to your own higher intelligence. You were given this intuition by the creator or God because he knew that the world was troubled and the conscious souls needed a way to be kept physically safe from all of the turbulence and violence.
Some believe that when one proclaims to be religious, God is protecting them and they are saved from the catastrophic events of the world. In the Christian religion, this belief is possibly based on the scripture, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” However, it is the spiritual understanding of it that causes this scripture to have power and authority over the “devil”.
Many believers are unconscious of the deeper understanding of what the scripture means, which leaves them unprotected and vulnerable. So, I want to expand your understanding and discernment of it so you can be protected from death, accidents, natural disasters, crime and violence, and most of all, spiritual ignorance, which is man’s greatest enemy.
The Bible uses the term Satan, the Devil and Lucifer to explain the negativity and evil in the world, however, a more modern terminology is the word Ego.
The ego is the negative or false self. It is your enemy and is driven by a human perception of reality. It is the inner voice in every human being that does not want them to have love, faith in divine energy and intelligence, peace, joy, happiness, love and well-being, prosperity, freedom and balance for all.
The ego prevents wealth for most, but it is also the driving factor for many who have achieved it. But for those who are wealth driven by the ego, the bibles tell us “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” This simply means that when you get wealth because of ego, you will not have joy.
Ego is the only nemesis to you finding your purpose in life and experiencing a beautiful and fulfilling life. It is what blocks you from hearing your divine intelligence and guidance. It is the collective mass ego that is causing the hell on earth and it is the collective spiritual awakening that is going to change the world for the better.
The divine spirit is the opposite, it is the positive self. It is your true identity without the programming and conditioning (fear, doubt, negativity) of the world. It is your direct connection to God or divine intelligence and power when not separated by the ego. Its gives you love, faith, power, wisdom, genius and creativity. You can ask it of anything your heart desire, its only purpose in life is to serve and protect and help you co-create and live your dream.
Realize that if you are at the human level of consciousness, you are possibly operating at 80 percent ego self and about 20 percent god self-identity. This equates to a lower level of consciousness and separates you from clearly hearing your guidance for safety and security.
A good example of the separation is when a cordless phone is too far away from the base, you can’t hear the person on the line even when they are still talking. But the closer you get to the base, the clearer you can hear.
Therefore, when you are mostly in your ego mode, you are unprotected, vulnerable and susceptible to the calamity of the world.
To activate your protection and security, you are going to have to change and get out of your ego perception of reality and get into your divine spirit perception. Why? Because this brings you closer to the base or source of intelligence. Furthermore, the spirit of God is a protector and wants you to be safe so he can use you to represent divine spirit and help serve the world.
Here are some strategies to put you in-spirit or in the Safety Zone:
Set your intention – Set your mind, heart and soul on spirituality for protection and security.
Write it down on paper – This is your prayer and what you want God to do for you. Affirm morning, noon and night. Keep it in front of you as much as possible.
Speak it – Affirm/Declare I AM always divinely guided and protected.
Visualize – See yourself being safe everywhere you go and in everything you do.
Remove Ego – Cleanse human perception of reality from your subconscious beliefs. Transform your mind from a false human perception to your true spiritual perception. Dedicate your life to self-improvement and spiritual growth. Increase and expand your spiritual understanding, by way of enlightened books, audio, video, workshops, seminars, inspirational groups.
Meditate and Listen to Guidance – Spend quiet time tuning in to spirit, being thoughtless. Learning how to control your mind. You will hear the guidance when your mind is quiet, you are in tune, channeling or resonating with divine intelligence.
Follow the Guidance – Take action, do what you are being divinely guided to do. “Faith without work is dead.”
Rejoice, Celebrate, Give Praise, and Be Grateful – Know that life and God are all good no matter how unfortunate, painful, stressful and tragic things may seem in our human understanding. Be grateful in bad times as well as in good times. Feel the river of joy flowing through you from never worrying about anything bad happening to you because you know God is protecting you. Stay conscious that you are protected.
When you become inspired (in spirit, in the safe zone) from the action steps above, you are in the grace of God and for sure, “no weapon formed against you shall prosper.” You will grow through life with a sense of supreme confidence and certainty as you listen to divine intelligence guide you safely through life. In essence, you are now “saved” from the deadly accidents, violence, calamity and catastrophe of the world.
