Strength and fortitude will win the day. That doesn’t mean you must use brawn to exert your muscles. It takes a good deal of intelligence and wisdom to be the leader that solves conflict without a physical fight. But if you control your temper and work through the discord, you will be the victor in more ways than seem apparent today.
In today’s world survival of the fittest isn’t measured in brawn and who has the biggest weapons. That attitude no longer suits the energy within and around Mother Earth.
Survival of the most spiritual is the measuring stick that will hold up in conflict. Who lives by the convictions of their beliefs in a positive way, no matter what those beliefs are (even if there are no spiritual beliefs at all). You cannot spout scripture and “Love they neighbor”, then walk out the door and denounce the person in the news or down the street who chooses to live different beliefs than you.
You cannot condemn all people who hold beliefs simply because you see them as ignorant or irrelevant, yet hold yourself up as the higher intelligence. No one truly knows what is unseen or unknown in the Divine Universe.
Everyone is walking their own path in this incarnation and they are where they need to be at this time. Your journey may not be parallel to theirs, but it’s not better, or worse, than theirs is. It’s merely where you need to be at this point and time in your physical life. But with free will and choice you decide if your path goes down hill and faces struggles that put your lessons to the test. Or if you pass the quiz and move toward the fork in the road that leads you upward toward wisdom and enlightenment.
Accepting others for who and what they are is the road toward enlightenment. You don’t have to agree with them, you don’t have live as they do. And you don’t have to abandon your convictions, “if” they walk the positive road. You can disagree with an idea or a concept. But if you denounce others for who and what they are, all you are doing is living in hypocrisy. Don’t sit in judgement of others. In the end, the one you may be judging is yourself.
