Illusions

The longer you hold on to the old ways, where one profits at the expense of another, the longer your challenges will continue. However, as soon as you let go and allow Great Spirit to bring about a solution that is best for everyone, your challenges will lessen.

It's difficult for some of us to see that our worldly beliefs are temporary, illusionary. We think that it's all written in stone and since everything has been this way for ages, then it must be true and good. After all, if everybody agrees that an hour only has 60 segments, an item just bought at the store really belongs to us, the TV always tells us the truth, our leaders are kind and beneficent, then they must be right, right? Well, times are changing fast and many of our long-held beliefs and institutions are falling apart before our very eyes.
As we step forth into the future, we are seeing that many of the ideas we invested a lifetime in are no longer working for us like they used to. Indeed, if we are to going to build a better world for ourselves and our children, we must begin to reexamine our thinking patterns and be willing to make changes when we run across a belief that's out of date.
Perhaps one of the most illusionary of our beliefs centers around who we are. We've been led to believe that we are a name and a body, with all its inherent proclivities and preferences, but this point of view is fast becoming obsolete. Clearly, the hallmark of the age we're stepping into bids us to become more than we thought we were.

My Intention for today is:
I Intend that I am taking a closer look
at my core beliefs about myself
and the world I live in.
