Spirit and Unity can heal our World -- There are hopeful signs and some things we can do to help promote Spirit, also known as God or the strongest force on earth! Unity is also strongly connected to Spirit and the spiritualization of our world.
Transformation for our Hearts and our World-- Part 2
May those who have an ear to hear
help to heal the Heart of Humanity.
A healing is at hand, and all of us can all be part of it.
Today individual salvation is a futile myth--
All of us are now connected on one earth, and
Answers for the Planet
cannot come with mere "Personal Salvation":
We need-- Salvation for a World!
Spirituality has a remedy for commercialism’s greed run riot,
causing heartless war, destruction and planetary peril.
Spirit holds a great potential, and
Our world needs that power greatly!
To awaken spiritual, caring ways is urgent,
yet that cause is greatly thwarted,
for Spirit’s long- time historic advocate has been besmirched.
Although religion has caused hurt and harm
through a past of volatility, misnomers and abuse.
There is great potential in the faiths,
but only when their true unity and oneness
are recognized. Thisis now seen in many circles.
Let us seek for remedies of Spirit, turning out
materialism run rampant, the major cause of inhumanity.
Let us open to all Powers for good and Virtue
to help us do what works for us and all the world.
Beware—The Dangers of Pre- Judging
Pre- judgment shuts out truth and can distort and stunt us both
in our individual and planetary healing. Let us free our minds--
The stretch you may find or want to make is not as hard as it seems.
Pre-judgement—prejudice—is contempt before investigation.
Beware lest you let security of viewpoint, a lazy mind or even
ridicule hold your thinking hostage—
For those hurt by misguided faiths there are answers, and kind and
gentle roads to heal the wounded heart.**
Where Spirit is involved, no soul will be left behind.

Religion has long been Spirit’s major vessel—
as promoter and preserver of spirituality.
No matter how much we see that that has been perverted--
Our world needs to allow or tap into
all that could access forces of great power,
especially those relating to Spiritual Powers, which are
the antidote to harmful, overdone materialism!
Sadly, victimizers have used religion to justify and
wield unhealthy power,
but religion's past abuses are undergoing certain healing.
Science’s denial, blind faith, religious war, sexism, racism,
prejudice and other issues have led the people far astray
from what the Prophets ever meant to be.
Some believe religion can be healed for renewed and
Spirit— key in Unity
We need Spirit’s Power, for a vital miracle of Unity—
which is exactly what we need to heal this world.
If the people would unite behind spiritual and humane causes,
war would be impossible.
Spirit and Unity are closely linked—
Religion,too (as strange as it may sound)
has a strong association with the cause of Unity.
Without unity, neither justice nor peace can be achieved.
Having birthed great civilizations and amazing transformations,
The faiths, used rightly, have great
power for uniting.*
Spiritconnects us to our unity.
Unity is an essential quality of Spirit.
Attached to a Spirituality of Oneness, that unity holds a
power vital for the healing of our world.*
To reclaim Spirit for the cause of unity
our oneness and religion's oneness must be proclaimed
in all the world, as well as past abuses healed and healing
Although wrongly used to pit one people against another,
religion's past abuses are being set to rights, including:
Religious War, Blind Faith, Racism, Sexism, Prejudice, Science’s Denial,
and all misnomers thatmislead and inspire fear, Inequality and other harms.
Power for Unity
To Build Unity— as related to all entities, including religion
calls for :
Common*¹ values, interests, social group, etc.
Universality-- The more shared qualities applicable to all in the
group) the greater unity's potential.
Diversity-- When a unified group includes more diverse elements
who also fit what’s listed here, the power of their unity is greatly
Coherence—as in a body of organized thought *³
Organization -- Specific, clear organization empowers unity and
focused power. Note this, however
Unity increases with……
Alignment with other powers, such as a parent organization,
religion, state, or nation, perhaps including...
Alignment with 'Spirit'— “Higher Being”/ "Something Greater"
that can increase the Power of anything.
Do you notice here, that
All the Powers that build Unity (as listed here)
can be amply found
in the vessel of religion!*
Religion, with a healing of its past misnomers
would be a most amazing power for the cause of unity!
*Notable in somefaiths morethan others.
“Organized Religion” and Spirituality?
Some say the two are incompatible--
Organization has been seen as a “nasty word”
as in the term “organized religion”--
Organization is vital for community living.
For example, I wonder—
Without religion’s long- time organized support for Spirit,
would anyone at all even be relating to or discussing
spiritual matters today?
Religion— To Hate it, Reject it or possibly to Heal it?
The very thought of religious faith has been a thorn to many, due to
past abuses and misuses of power- hungry agents.
Spirit is not at fault – and though the ways of men have harmed
religion, the faiths have also been a Source of human civilizing.
Without religion, where would Spirit & the people be today?
When we reject and put religion down, does that add to all the
issues in the way of bringing Spirit to the forefront of our world?
Wouldn’t it be better to respect all paths that aspire to the Spirit?
Without religion’s long support for Spirit’s ways, would we even
be thinking or talking about spiritual matters now?
Ibelieve there can be Healing for Religion--
Misplaced Motives of the Faiths
Religion has perpetrated:
Religious Wars, Inequality, Racism, blind faith and science’s denial,
Sexism, prejudice and spiritual abuse including harsh and
judgmental authority, rigidity, hypocrisy, and more.
Yet we can still believein
A Healing Faith for Our World
strongly counteracting past abuses --
supporting Non-Violence & Peace without withholds.
calling for true justice, equality in race, sex, religion & nationality.
Open-mindedness, flexibility, honesty, tolerance, loving kindness
and Unity would be its hallmarks.
Such a thing is in the world, as well as modern
faith groups and interfaith embodying unity and virtue.
Any "Way" truly open for World Healing
would have a core of goodly, Godly Spirit, including:
1)-- It would come from & call forth great Power,
strongly grounded in Godspirit.
2)-- It cannot exclude any large groups of people from working
together as accepted equals.
3) It must provide tools to re-make our world,
much more than a vague wish or ideal--
4) A pleasing Order, clearly defined with guidelines for
healthy institutions and roles
In short, an artful, inspiring, astounding, globally unifying
Master Plan arising out of a most powerful Source of Truth...
All Religion is from the same Source, and
if religion becomes a cause of disunity,
it is better to do without it!*-- Baha’i Teaching
The Spiritualization of all Humanity …
Is the coming into Love, truth of the heart and our
connectedness, openingto Spirit and solutions to amaze.
It is seeking out and finding a deeper Source that feeds and
can fuel the vital prospect of our Unity, yet valuing diversity,
justice and equality of sex, class and race, and especially
provision for the healthy spiritualization of humanity and other
vital issues of our times.
I believe that we can see this in its infancy.
I see its hopefulness and see it building up its strength.
Honoring all ways to Soul
For some, spiritualitymay involvethe religion of their choice,
while others may reach for more varied pathways.
Let us abstain from putting down the choice of anyone, as
that can harm the vital cause of love and unity so essential for
the vital healingof our world.
I respect the guidanceof each heart, no matter what my
choices for myself.
The Heart’s Investigation is a vitalpart of human destiny.
Its become more urgent now than ever to strive to reach for
Something Greater than the mind.
To Weigh A Cause
Our attachment to opinionbecomes a block to truth when
we judge by our own likes, dislikes, and our sometimes not-so –
recognized humanlyfallibleopinionsand standards.
The Prophets and truth-seekers say to judge by the standard
of Gods Greater Spirit, meaning letting go of our oft- revered
opinions.We can do this in meditationor by many methods of
detachment, such as praying or asking with deep sincerity to be
wholly freed of self and alldesire.
To surrender these, to submit our very being and our way of
life to the tests of truth is seeing with the eye of the Infinite, of
God-Spirit, rather than our own finite selves.
This is the highest standard of investigation.
We are challenged and "tested" or deterred from truth by
our desire to be "right" and have our lives "our own way", even
though that may not be best in the longer run for us or for the
world. No one knows the whole truth, but if we start with a
blank and open slate, with no agenda, we can then be led more
likely to a truly Higher place than that of self.
In overcoming self we may receive truth untainted,
to make great strides in life and in the life of Spirit.
Truth has answers for our world,
Surely Spirit has them in its storehouse --
Let us commit ourselves to seek & find them
and to block no avenues of possibility.
Whatever answers are true surely will hold healing for us all.
Most of us, at some time, have found it in us to step forward, to
investigate a way not knowing where it may lead us. Let us trust,
knowing a way will appear if we keep on going for the Highest that
we can find.
Faith is in believing, that somehow what will come will be for
the very Highest good of ourselves and all.
May we have the faith to seek, believe and
serve the Higher Good!
True Friend ofSpirit
There may be such a Power on our planet, combining
Spirit, Unityand Soul, melding diverse peoples as the
"fingers of one hand",showing forth amazing idealsand
miracles of unity and power, with respite for religion’s past
betrayals and sharing answers for a just and healing world.
I believe there is such a power, and it may well be the
Source and impetus behind today’s related movements.
It may not be a “perfect” answer fitting all we think it should at
first, but let us keep an open mind to find the greatest possible
potentialfor the healingof our time.
Would you seek to investigate or find this?
If not, then please indulge me while I speak to those who may.
I believe most strongly that we are all impelled,those of all
faiths and the rebels of religion too, onto a path of healing,
The sooner and closer we tap into it and learn its truths,
the sooner human suffering will subside.
Could there be such a Power, perhaps even from religion,
with remedies for a modern age, that even may be speaking from
a vessel of Something Greater than the human voice,
inspired from deep love and revering kind Divinity.
I believe there is such power and it gives me hope,
though all may not ascribe to it.
With what I see before me,
There may even be a faith with healing for religion--
prohibiting violence with vital force and clarity
championing Justice, Peace, co-operation, equity, health,
a pure environment and human sanity and sensibility.
If there is such a faith or healing way, does that mean that
all must join it, for the healing of humanity??
Not at all (and thank God for that) – for me, that could mean
that our world’s healing might be too far away for hope!
(I told you this was sane & sensible!)
Urgent needs for healing call to all of us,
and perhaps a Voice of Ages can be heard as well.
We can trust our lives to this investigation & endeavor,
for any healthy answers surely must holdgood for
thinkers and believersand for the rebel in us too!
For the cause of sorely needed Peace and healing
and the sweet bounty of the open heart,
Let us raise the call to Spirit and set aside all fears,
pre-judgment or beliefs of limitation, supporting the hurt and healing
ones so that all may grow in Spirit’s closeness.
May the hearts awaken to embrace forgiveness and healing allowing
for all possibilities for the needs of a harassed humanity.
And now may I invite you, if you’re among the
readers here who thirst for something more…
Whether you believe in what I say or not--
It may be good to know that there could be a Source for
the greater healing of humanitythat may come from
Something more than meets the eye, maybe even Something
on our side that may have more than human power!!
"Let the Friends be as close as sheaves of Light..."*, and
Let it be this generation to bring forth the banner of Peace.
We need to do that!

Notes FYI-- Deep Roots
The root of these ideas for a healthy, loving faith (should you investigate) may begin in the mid
1800’s with the advent of a Prophet- Founder, a Being of great mastery by any reckoning.
He foretold the need of unity, and prescribed a suite of remedies such as are namedhere for our
modern era. Many movements now have sprung from these very values, showing forth great
vigor, value and compelling power. Many add more power yet can obscure the source or root
from which the power flows. And that is the greater Power that inspires me. The Founder of
that path was Baha’u’llah, whose followers are called Baha’is. More at Bahai.org.
