It appeared that tackling the problem of world hunger was impossible. There were scarce resources. The world could not manage “carrying” the hungry. (You can see where I’m going with this.) The weakest of the species had to be sacrificed for the strongest to survive.
Yes, inevitably, the point of view that denies that world hunger can be done away with tracks back to social Darwinism. Social Darwinism is at base a justification of the reservation of the world’s resources for the most powerful.
There were many points of view that disputed social Darwinism – the Social Gospel, the Cooperative Commonwealth movement, the inner-city movement, social democracy, the New Age movement, on and on the list goes of movements which saw the necessity and desirability of seeing to the well-being of our neighbors. (1)
McCarthyism made everything with the word “social” in it wrong, except social Darwinism. And we cowered from being labeled a socialist. In the face of the attack from the right, which was all the time anchored in Illuminati manipulations, social reform, social concern, and the social-safety net were all defeated.
People like Werner Erhard who dared to tackle world hunger were run out of town. (2)
The CIA institutionalized the use of ridicule to deny the existence of extraterrestrials. (3) It was extended as a tool of public policy into all areas that threatened to weaken the grip of the small group of planetary controllers.
We do so by remembering that there is a Divine Plan, that this world runs on universal laws, and that the qualities and ways of being that pass muster before the universal laws are the divine qualities that we here know about and have agreed to live by.
These three – the Divine Plan, the universal laws, and the divine qualities – are in place to fulfill the purpose of life, which is to have us awaken to our true nature. The scenario that we serve – of mass, physical Ascension on Planet Earth and the restoration of Gaia’s surface and surface population – are part of the unfoldment of that plan of return to the One.
Because to know our true nature, we’ll have to return to the One.
Again as we approach the discussion of world hunger, these three become the facts that we fall back upon – the Divine Plan, the universal laws, and the divine qualities.
It’s not part of the Mother’s Plan for this era or for any era, that mass portions of the population of a planet exist in a condition of starvation leading to death.
The law of karma exhorts us to do unto others as we would they do unto us because that law sees that that happens. The seed we plant yields its fruit in time. What we sow, we reap. If we sow the seeds of neglect in the face of world hunger, we reap hunger.
The law of karma puts it on the basis of self-interest that we should work to eliminate world hunger. If we tolerate hunger, we reap hunger. What could be more elementary than that it be in our own self-interest to eliminate it?
However most people don’t know about the law of karma and many who do don’t care about it. So hunger persists in our world when there is no justification for it and no need for it.
I haven’t the resources to research world hunger although I know that the Hunger Project and dozens of other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) have. I will never have the time to do the research. And I have dozens of other topics to cover. So I must rely on others taking up from where I leave off.
Nonetheless whatever was our record in the past, the neglect that we’ve given the masses of starving people on the planet until now cannot be allowed to stop us from beginning the work to eliminate world hunger now.
Finally, the divine qualities cannot flower in us alongside an attitude of neglect for the suffering of the world. Yes, they reside in us. No, we don’t have to “develop” them. But we do have to remove the overburden from our hearts.
The divine qualities that naturally reside in us are hidden by this overburden, choked by the weight of them, obscured by the darkness they create.
There are occasions when I can feel the bands of muscular tension in my body causing enough resistance that it chokes off the love that I would otherwise feel.
Kathleen and I were making a holiday video the other day and as we approached the task I noticed the rise of holding patterns in the body that reflected some incompletion or unfinished business. Eckhart Tolle calls this residue of past upsets “the pain body.”
It’s exactly our incompletions that exist as the overburden on our hearts. If we were squeaky clean, there would be no resistance on our part. And that’s what all our cleansing has been about. The existence of this overburden stopped us in the past. But it can no longer be allowed to stand as a justification for neglect.
As we approach the work of building Nova Earth, we face addressing tasks that were previously thought impossible to accomplish. We invite ridicule for our beliefs and resistance from forces that do not want to see the world’s poor liberated from their condition and resistance from our own selves.
We definitely have our work cut out for us and will need to rely on each other as members of the lightworker community to go forward with this work.
But here we encounter another “fact” that would be denied by empiricists and that is that we have the aid of archangels and seraphim, galactics and ascended masters. Invisible, higher-dimensional beings whose support, tempered by the need to preserve our free will, is stronger than all the forces in the world.
Do I know how hunger will end in the world? I do not. I suspect that it will end because we started with our own neighbourhoods and worked our way outwards. We established a strong base by seeing that hunger does not exist around us. and then extended that till it took in the whole planet.
With the lessons we learned and from the gradually expanding financial and resource base that the Company of Heaven supplies us with as we “mature” in our work, we’ll become able to train and finance others in other countries to do the same that we’ve done here – to eliminate hunger in their locales as well.
One cannot eliminate hunger without seeing and addressing other ills such as homelessness, epidemic disease, and simple poverty.
And none of this work can go on in a world at war. So you can see that addressing any global issue like world hunger is like pulling a thread in a ball of twine which, pulled long enough, unwinds the whole ball.
(1) Werner Erhard used to say that my well-being depended on you being in good shape. Because if you were not in good shape, chances are that you’d see that I wasn’t either. I think that applies with nations as well as with individuals and the existence of hunger is an area of international relations that demonstrates it. This world cannot claim to be well as a planet as long as large numbers of its population face mass starvation.

“Government officials who have acted in accordance with their sense of honesty and right-ness have been disposed of by one means or another. Those who are not killed are threatened with it or they are ridiculed into non-credibility or are forced into oblivion insofar as any influence. That is what has been passing as the ‘democratic system of government’ in America.” (Matthew Ward, “Matthew Ward: Special NESARA Edition, 2003 and 2005,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/building-nova-earth-toward-a-world-that-works-for-everyone/nesara-or-the-abundance-program/matthew-ward-special-nesara-edition-2003-and-2005/.)
