Divided We Fall

United we stand, divided we fall, and although in America we are called the United States if it’s not seen that we are all part of the same race, the human one, it will be divided we stand, divided we fall.

Until it is seen by ALL races that there is only one race, the human one, nothing will change. There is much wrong with the world and at the core is the lack of love and respect for each other, regardless of race or gender for that matter. This is a very deep issue in our society and until people look at each other through the eyes of love, the ego will continue to cause us to be separated by our differences. The nonsense of the Conditioned Mind goes far deeper than the surface stuff of not standing for the USA National Anthem. Stand, kneel, sit, lay down if you want, but this disrespect shown is for yourself. It’s called the UNITED States, but where’s the unity in any protest? The very act of protesting keeps the separation in place, it divides it doesn’t unite and because of this, humanity will remain as it is because of the lack of love at its core.

This isn’t isolated as just being an American issue, it’s a humanity issue. The ego separates, love unites and until we see each other through the eyes of love and see we are all a part of one race, the human one, regardless of the protests, things will remain as they are because we will continue to do things that separate, not unite. There are so many ways to do things quietly that provides unity, but the more one draws attention on themselves, the more one’s controlling energy is from the ego. Nothing is helped by protesting because it’s showboating from the ego and not from the energy of love. Only in quietness does love arise and until this is seen neither America nor the world will ever be united.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change. www.mondayinyourmind.com
