This morning I not only see the silver lining I can actually feel it.
Yesterday, the United States House of Representatives passed universal health care. Today, much of the fear that had been plaguing so many people in this country has shifted. Against all odds, and almost in defiance of reason, the immobilization and concern that are hallmarks of fear have been replaced with a call to action and optimism.
Why? Because Life has its own agenda. And as the saying goes, “Man plans and God laughs.” There’s a parable that’s instructive here:
A horse and cart were being driven down the road when the horse tried to veer off to one side against the wishes of the driver. So, she lightly pulled on the reigns and the horse returned to the original path. Moments later, the horse once again veered off the road and this time the driver jerked on the reigns much more aggressively. Reluctantly, but quickly, the horse resumed the direct path. Finally, on the horse’s third attempt to stray, the driver cracked the whip. Whereby, the horse immediately, and thereafter, stayed on the straight and narrow.
We have had countless “tugs on the reigns” as we, as a nation, have strayed from the direct and intended path. To each of those we have responded in a way that returned us to where we needed to be… but only temporarily. We are a “stiff-necked people” with a short memory, it seems.
So, yesterday, we received a miracle!
The House of Representatives, at least 219 of them, cracked the whip…and while that was not their intention, God was laughing. For the miracle of passing universal health care is that it has awakened a sufficient amount of people to conscious evolution that we have reached the tipping point. Now, enough people understand what tyranny looks and feels like. Now we can actually begin to move in the direction of real change… toward individual freedom, personal responsibility and the kind of oneness that reveals the perversion of socialism and other political systems that purport to speak and act for the best interest of the people.
The best interest of the people is best spoken and acted by the people. Yesterday, 219 of our elected officials ignored that Universal Law in a push to pass the law of universal health care. They’ve declared victory.
Listen. Can you hear that sound?
God is laughing.
