Spiritual Coaching Vol 2 #47 Confusion…

http://www.dennymeyer.me   Confusion…

It’s hard to remember those days just after President Richard Nixon resigned and the nation was confused about why the most powerful man in the world would resort to such cheap underhanded behavior to win an election that he had already won from all appearances. Why did he do that? Politics continues to be confusing to most of Americans as we approach another election. Principals divide people  more than the media circus. The media simply amplifies the divisions. There is nothing out there which is “fair and balanced.” That my friends is a marketing ploy. We could really use a principled leader like Gerald Ford who knew how to work with both political parties to get things done for the country. Ford once wrote, “History and experience tell us that moral progress comes not in comfortable and complacent times, but out of trial and confusion.” Alas, the politics of division is the only politics we know.


We are in a time of trial and confusion world-wide. Hate, destruction, oppression, division, poverty, wealth, war, and rumor of war are all rampant on the world scene. Where is there a harbor of hope? Jesus said, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12. There is no confusion about the meaning of this. Statements that mirror the Golden Rule appear in Ancient Egypt. One can read it in the writings of Confucius (551–479 B.C.). The concept’s appears in many religious traditions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. It is a concept that essentially all religions include. In fact it can be found in some form in almost every ethical tradition.


There is a movement of sorts to find this common ground that, I believe, God has imprinted on the human race. This ancient knowledge that emanates from a deep within the human psyche. We may be confused about man things but believer and non-believer can find common ground in this statement of ethics that has no confusion associated with it. Let it be guide to you to clear up the confusion of your life and bring clarity and hope to your world.

Be Well
