Charity: Not Mode of Ignorance

As I was watching this past weekend's London Marathon I was thinking of all of the dedicated people who give their lives, hearts and souls to the many different causes they run for.

Surely, almost everyone has been affected or knows someone who's been affected by cancer. You will find people running for other causes like leukaemia, bone-marrow transplants and all of the other endless causes, but one of the greatest things, I think, is that they are all working in the same goodness and not working nor competing against each other.

How fortunate I am to live in Guernsey in the Channel Isles, where we have the sixth-highest earnings per citizen and the tenth-highest life expectancy in the world, which gives each indivdual the time and the quality to discover the nature of the living soul, the spirit soul within, if they choose. I compare it to the nation of my birth (USA) where 18,000 people per year die from a lack of health care. During the Clinton years 35.5 million people were without health care, and that figure has risen to 46.6 million under President G.W. Bush.

So as we have the comfort to parrot sayings like "this and that charity is in the mode of ignorance," there are people dying every day. We as a collective consciousness need to see these so-called leaders for who and what they are, and also what the overall state of each nation really is.

When we close that heart chakra, we are closing a vehicle that has the ability to help millions of souls around the world and to make real change in people's lives.
