Building a Brighter Future

All the darkness of the world cannot put out the light of a single candle

by D.L. Marshall

With the current global situation, together we can, and will build a brighter future. In other to give meaningful suggestions for this, we first need to speak candidly about what’s happening in the world at present. It appears for real, that there are factions within the world’s power elite that desire at all costs to exert as much control as possible over the people of the world. It will surprise you that their primary means for establishing control are through causing destabilization, promoting fear, secrecy, polarization, and distracting people from their deeper and core purpose in life. The irony of this is that when these factions and principalities gain greater power and control, our freedoms and liberties will be increasingly taken away, sometimes without us even realizing it.

Fear is often used as a powerful tool of control by these factions of the global powerful elite. Situations like these are highlighted for us as the terrorists want to kill us all, your job, savings, and retirement are no longer secure, you are either for us or against us, we might be attacked at any time, and peace is dangerous. All of these messages push us toward fear. And by encouraging us to lose focus, and put the blame on others such as terrorists and “evil” leaders perhaps bad leadership. Thereby programming us to hate those they want us to hate, believe the lie, trust evil, and debunk the truth.

The global power brokers always push humanity away from feeling or being in control of their lives, rather towards the role of powerless victims. The more we slip into fear and being victims, the easier it is for us all to be manipulated.

Another tool often used by these global elites against us is shrugging their activities in secrecy. This leads to control, by preventing the exposure of hidden agendas, and through breeding distrust, suspicion, and paranoia in our communities, state, nation, and the world at large. In the name of “national security, top secret, and classified.” We have been told more frequently that we should not know what is happening behind government closed doors. Yet we are encouraged to keep a vigilant watch over our neighbors, spy on them, and report them. Those who question the government, and those who look or act differently from us, are your enemies, as they could secretly be terrorists in sheep’s clothing. People with facts, who question the motives, are censored. On the other hand, when their evil plans, are exposed, they have a name for it, it is called, conspiracy theory. In the long run, rampant suspicion makes everyone look suspicious to you, you find it difficult to trust one another, setting up each other as enemies, which further destabilizes us as a community. Secrecy causes us to lose touch with the common human reality we share all around us.

Polarization leads to the “us vs. them, our nation against them,” way of thinking. Divide and conquer is a tactic, that is being used successfully by the power elite of the world for centuries. This style of approach is very common with the Western government. As long as people focus on blaming and attacking “the enemy,” most often the so-called “enemy” is created and may not necessarily exist, this will therefore not likely cause one to look for the deeper causes of their problems. This blindly enables the community to align with the created agenda, we ignorantly support the wrong motive, fighting the wrong battles, neglecting the core purpose and the role Christians, are called to.

Furthermore, controlling factions of the power elite, work to keep public and media attention focused on issues that divide us into two or more polarized camps. So that their greatest concerns of attaining and sustaining power, and establishing their agenda could go on unnoticed. The power brokers then control both sides of the divided public, by assuring corporate ownership of the media and key candidates from all political parties support their deeper power and polarization agendas. Which often involve clashes, destabilization, war profiteering, and much more. The final subtle, yet powerful method of gaining control is to distract people from their purpose in life.

Consider that television, radio, podcast, and movies are filled with ever more greed, violence, immorality, and empty sex. Our educational system has increasingly prioritized passing tests over developing intelligence and creativity. Excessive corporate control of the media has limited people’s thinking faculty, the news is the unquestionable truth, and typically shaped people’s decisions, and the way they think. Our attention is subtly diverted from our deeper purpose in life to the more superficial attractions of sex, fashion, consumerism, materialism, money, and all the irrelevant things. When people succumb to fear, secrecy, and polarization, and when they lose touch with their sense of purpose in life, elements of the global elite can exert ever more control over their lives and the world at large.

Towards a Brighter Future, what can we all do about all of this?

Ultimately, it is the collective fear, secrecy, polarization, and loss of purpose within all of us that has allowed leaders to take power. Subvert democracy, and cause religious clashes, thereby taking away our freedoms and liberties and pushing us all against one another.

If every one of us will make a commitment to work on these issues, both within ourselves, and in every Christian community out there– by inspiring others to do the same, we can change our collective direction, and build a solid foundation for a brighter future. Several actions can help us to take firm steps in that direction.

Firstly, develop a purpose and intention for your life. To live rich, full lives in today’s complex world, it is vitally important to give your life a clear direction by exploring what is deepest and most meaningful to you. By developing a life purpose and life intentions based on this, choose to live your intentions and follow your purpose to the best of your ability every day. By deciding to live with a clear direction and focus, life becomes deeper and more meaningful. This then weakens the seduction of consumerism and media hype which has distracted everyone from their core God-given purpose.

Transform fear into acceptance and love. When we notice ourselves feeling and nurturing fear, we can trace the roots of that fear, so that we can identify our core challenges and deal more consciously with them. We can be open to guidance from friends, teachers, and spiritual sources in helping us to move from fear to acceptance, and understanding of what love is all about. We can also transform our fears by welcoming the ever-present love of God, and the love that always lies deep within our hearts, and in the hearts of those around us. In doing this, we begin to recognize fear as an invitation against personal and community growth.

Self-awareness also helps you know when you are playing the role of victim, and choose instead to take personal responsibility for building a brighter future. Blaming others for our problems, doing what the global elite wants us to do, and yielding to their plan, detach us from taking responsibility. We become involved in creating and becoming part of these issues, through the choices we make. Rather than playing the role of victim, by blaming others (including the government, and power elite) for everything wrong in our lives, we, can decide to take a look inside ourselves and take responsibility for what’s happening to us. By focusing less on blaming others, deciding to stick to the narrow path, and more likewise, improving ourselves, both in our lives and in our community, creating, building, and establishing our system, economy, and tech, among others. Every one of us can make a huge difference.

Avoiding secrecy and encouraging openness and transparency is an important way we can work together to inform friends and colleagues about the major cover-ups being hidden from the public. Then in our personal lives, when we notice ourselves keeping information from others, we can examine our motives for this secrecy. Are we withholding information out of our self-interest, or because this is really what’s best for all involved? And on a deeper level, why are we avoiding being honest with ourselves? It is high time we embrace transparency in all of our dealings. Transparency breeds trust, sincerity, and drives loyal within any community.

Move beyond polarization and the focus of “us vs. them.” Every person in the world has a heart. And each of us has a place in our hearts that wants only to love and be loved. Consider the possibility that all of us are doing what we believe to be right, which is based on the word of God. If we all just keep to the commandment and live a Christ-centered life, our community will evenly radiate in peace, love, and harmony. Once we focus less on blaming and judging “them,” – we increasingly come to see and understand that we are all one human family, and, we can choose to transform our world by working together for the good of all. Finally, let’s come together in groups and communities to support each other in making these positive changes.

In these groups and communities, such as our place of worship, among our friends, family, colleagues, and neighborhood, let’s support each other in transforming fear into acceptance and love. We exchange information about all that is being hidden from us and explore ways to move beyond polarization. We also share our life purpose and intentions and encourage each other to live these as fully as we can. Let’s inspire each other to take responsibility for our lives and to be the best that we can be. Let us also support those that need help, and embrace love over hatred. When we support each other in these intentions, we join in building a growing network of inspiration and empowerment around the planet. These suggestions emphasize changing the collective consciousness of the world by transforming both our personal lives and establishing a Christian value community in the world around and beyond us. Let us all do what we can to stop the destructive behaviors of the global power elite against us. It is high time you play your role now.

God Bless you.
