Plan for Humanity

by Dr. Stewart Bitkoff


Q: How can you claim there is a Plan for humanity?  Just look at the mess out there; surely somebody is not doing their job.

A:        Many would assert the world is in chaos and daily we continue to destroy ourselves. Further the idea of a spiritual plan for humanity is absurd; just look at our track record and the growing materialism, addictions, and physical and sexual abuse/exploitation of our young. Additionally, historically, so-called spiritual leaders have been responsible through war and greed for some of our greatest suffering.  In fact today many of the churches continue as some of the richest corporations on earth.

This description of humanity‚Äôs self-destructive capacity is true; however it describes only part of the picture. It neglects our higher nature and the unselfish efforts of billions.  For example none of us would be here without the love and care of parents, friends and relatives.  The fact that religious leaders start wars for their own interest does not take away the fact that many continue, in their role of clergy, to serve the higher law, fight for reform and help whenever they can.

From a spiritual perspective, events and experiences are neither bad nor good.  Events must be evaluated using the criteria of learning, service and how each brought us closer to our higher self. 

Spiritually suffering is a friction with the potential to speed our learning.  On another level it may be an inevitable outcome of the situation causing harm.

Raising Better People

People treat others badly
Because they do not know
How to treat themselves well.
The ills of the world
Are correctable only
By raising better people.

Better people are produced
Only through higher knowledge.
Higher knowledge is available
If you search for it
And are fitted to receive it.
That is the quandary.

The task of the rightly Guided Ones
Is to tend the flame of knowledge
And under the proper conditions share it.
These conditions include:
Right time, right place and right people.

So you think I am talking in riddles?
Perhaps I am or maybe
You need to change your way of thinking.
