HumanHints, today ‘Higher Power’ Part 2 – Self-Reliance

Higher Power doesn’t reward good acts or punish bad. Higher Power, by definition, doesn’t know the difference between good and bad. Humans know the difference because we’re in it and we feel it. We’re in the trenches while Higher Power watches from fully-stocked underground bunkers. Too often, decisions from Above ignore Humanity. CEOs cut the workforce for the good of the Company. Governments steal from taxpayers for the good of the Nation.

HumanHints, today ‘Higher Power’ Part 1 – Neutral

Good and bad do not exist beyond the body and the realm of physical matter. Acts are not punished or rewarded by a higher power. By definition, a higher power is beyond the physical realm of polarities. Higher power tries to keep you on your Life’s Path. It doesn’t have any concept of pain, suffering, or joy. It knows only how close you are to experiencing and learning what you agreed to before you became unconscious in a physical body.

HumanHints, today ‘Heart Protector’ Part 1

Whether we want to admit it or not, we are each Masters of our own domain. We each rule our own personal physical kingdom, starting with the human body. A good Leader must rule with compassion, but compassion leaves us vulnerable. In relationship, we must have compassion for others, which leaves us vulnerable. As with all things, there is a balance we must find in each moment, both consciously and beyond our awareness.
