All People are Created Equal?

This is what we are told…all men and women are created equal.

Then we begin to question why does the kid in the the slums do drugs and why does the kid in the suburbs go to private school! How can that be equal birthrights? What about the kid exposed to horrible disease in a third world county compared with the little royal prince whose world is pure paradise!

Does each human being born in this world have the same right to live a good life and enjoy peace and serenity?  This theory may have to be taken deeper than the words themselves, deep into a spiritual world where each individual has that right to live beyond the material world and find joy and wholeness in a world protected by God (Whoever or Whatever that Higher Spirit may be).

It is essential to remember that people do have a choice to choose the path that feels full and secure. Yes, some have no guidance from uncaring parents. This often creates a vicious cycle and it is kept in motion by a sickness that is extremely difficult to break. The equality we are given at birth means there is an answer to the problem of this whirlwind cycle. Among the trapped individuals, this Special Power has sprinkled helpers into the world to give a helping hand to those who want to break the cycle.

The equality given as a birthright means everyone has the right to choose to break the cycle. All men are created with the ability to choose the right path, to live abundantly with peace of mind and to help his fellow man.

Those people born to wealth and abundant love sometimes choose a path of selfishness.  Why? Not everyone wants to live along a path that requires gratitude and giving back so they attempt to get more and more just for their own use. It is the choice they make. They might believe they are not equal to others but far better than their fellow man. There are some of these  people around…they have misunderstood what the promise of equality means.

Believe in equality and stay on your path by sharing your joy. Choose the right path and claim your birthright.

Let’s Talk about Honesty


Something is really beginning to rattle my cage! What happened to honesty and being responsible?

I am talking specifically about our children and what seems to be accepted by parents and teachers. Are we afraid to set examples and expect the kids to follow us in a life of integrity and truth? Honesty is an asset needed for all the years of our lives.

One blazing example of the lack of honesty is the number of 10-12 year old kids on Facebook. Facebook is a fun, social media tool and there are rules in place to insure the fun and safety of the users. One big rule requires users to be at least 13 years old. OK, but let’s take a look at the lies told about age and the parents help these youngsters sign up! Parents, what example are you setting?

Aunts, teachers, grandparents and adult friends find this atrocious…where is honesty? We know some of those youngsters are not being honest about their ages…they are our friends and relatives. Honesty is a quality respected by higher educators, the courts and future employers, the people we love the most, but the kids don’t learn honesty unless we hold them responsible for their actions and unless we are honest ourselves.

Being dishonest about anything begins to turn value systems upside down. Before long, it is hard to remember which way is up.

Be a parent and teach children the value of honesty. We need to be honest in life!
