Accept Without Expectation or Judgement

Let us learn to accept people for who they are without expectation or judgement.  We cannot expect people to do what we wish them to do or to do what we would do, for they are not us.  They are who they are and we are who we are.  Let us be the best that we can be, for what we do is what is under our control.  Sa Ra

Forgive Yourself

We should learn to forgive ourselves when we make mistakes.  None of us are perfect.  We are all prone to error.  Yet, let us learn from our mistakes and strive to handle the situation better when we face it again.  If we can’t forgive ourselves, how can we expect to forgive others.  Sa Ra

Thinking is necessary to critically analyze and evaluate.  However, thinking is advisable only when one has thoughts under their control.  Thoughts can be like a powersaw that can cut to the core of the subject and create things of beauty when wielded correctly.  But if not controlled, it can be dangerous to the user and others.  Sa Ra

Inspiration through Action

We inspire others through our righteous actions.  Mere words without corresponding actions carries little weight.  People watch what we do more so than listen to what we say.  However, if our actions are righteous and consistent; our words carry more power.  Sa Ra

Racism

Racism is an extreme manifestation of ego/lower nature consciousness.  Ego consciousness is separate consciousness and therefore places emphasis on differences, thus giving rise to conflict.  Racism is fear based and manifests through desire to control.  Sa Ra

Racism

Racism is an affliction that cannot be cured by ignoring it as though it does not exist.  The afflicted must engage in diagnosis and acknowledgement of the affliction.  Only after acknowledgement may the afflicted parties begin treatment and embark on a road to recovery.  Sa Ra

Spirituality and Injustice

To be Spiritual does not mean that one should oblivious to injustice.  Rather, a Spiritual person should through words and actions be an exemplar and thus be compelled to shine the light on injustice.  In this way, we contribute to humanity’s ascension.  Sa Ra
