As we all collectively enter a new grade of the school of creative financing we find that we stand at a point in-between what we believe in our hearts to be possible and what we see in our world.
We hold tightly to the spiritual lifeline that dangles from the high cliffs as we try over and over again to propel up the side of what seems to be an insurmountable slick surface. All techniques we have been taught in the past do not seem to adhere to the molecules of this new world that writes its own rules.
Prayers are not heard, answers are not received and memos are thrown in the trash, nothing seems to be listening to our cries for help. We stand in the street of our life with the eye of the tornado looking straight at us. We all seem singled out as the very lint from our pockets is spent to gas up or feed our families. We yell at the gods in dismay as we feel so many promises have been broken. We search the yellow pages for answers and no one returns our calls.
All seem to be in a trance as they walk aimlessly through their lives with no hope of a shiny future. Every price we said we would ‘never pay,’ we do now with great remorse and anger. We hold back and hold on to what little we have strangling the very economy enforcing the ‘less than’ code to the fullest degree.
We feel like Pandora after the ‘last hope’ has left the building. We do not see any reprieve from this onslaught of darkness that has us all by the throats. We know life will never be the same and mourn for simpler safer times that were only a few months ago but seem light years away.
Humanity has crossed the line in the sand and the sandcastles of old have been swept away as the tides turn. Yet deep within us still lives a single molecule of faith. Not a faith that can be seen or spent but a faith that comes from outside of us, a faith that is given to us as a gift from the heavens instilled within the very fabric of Light that graces our planet. It is not our faith in God that counts right now, it is God’s faith in us that brings closure to this reign of fire and brimstone.
Hope now gently boils to the surface after too long a stay on the bottom. She infuses us with economic optimism as we cross the financial heart line into unknown territories and rewrite the rules for being human. Our financial heart line is held sturdy by white columns of hope, for without hope we lose our humanity and our reason for bring here on earth.
Humanity is the only species that was made in the creator’s image holding all the credentials and ingredients for doing great feats. As Pandora pointed out we are the last hope of a loving God that sees the future of this galaxy and is dependant upon humanity to move past its self imposed trials and tribulations and secure its place in the universe.
In order to do this we, as a people must camp out on the financial heart line drawn in the winding sands of Hope. Daring what is dark and manipulative to cross, forcing it into the light. The way we do this it to take the faith that has been placed in us by the Creator and invest it in a future that is hope filled. We can never stop believing in better days, in the goodness of people, in divine justice. We can never stop believing in our dreams for ourselves and those we love.
Darkness feeds on doubt and fear. It wants us to give up and give in to a bleak future with no hope. Since we are the guardians of the last hope fueled by the Creators belief and faith in us it is our mission and duty to hold this light of hope high for all to see. Speak hope and granular faith into all those you meet. You are the light in the dark future that so many see. Let your little light shine on what seems like the darkest of days. For one spark of Hope can ignite an entire world.
