“All too often, when we battle for the right, it turns out that both the victor and the vanquished have sustained defeat.” [UB 1778:02]
Thought Adjuster: “Let us ponder the above statement that is mind-boggling at first. Why would it be so that often both the victor and the vanquished have sustained defeat in their battle for the right?
Your world abounds in events that support that statement. First of all, what many perceive as the ‘right’ is based on their very subjective and often conditioned take on other’s contrary opinions. So many wars waged in the name of righteousness have actually been at the root of much injustice and unrighteousness—the most striking examples being the so-called holy wars of these days and the Crusades of centuries ago.
Indeed, if one battles for the right while resorting to unrighteous means, both parties experience setbacks, as no soul can thrive if the heart is fueled and consumed by hate, rather than driven by love.
As well, coercion never results in soul’s liberation. How could it be so when the Father has issued an eternal decree that, in all cosmic decisions, the free-will prerogative of the creatures has to be respected—never to be violated.
If you are confused as to how to promote what you consider to be the truth, look at the way Jesus promoted Divine Truth: He was loving and humble; he was patient and discerning as to how and with whom He shared Truth. At times, especially in His private ministry, He focused on the immediate needs of His interlocutors. At other times, when addressing a crowd, He focused on the level of the crowd consciousness. The Truth He meted out was always commensurate to the need for revelation and the ability to process it.
Dear ones, when in doubt as to how to share your ‘good news’, go within and ask yourself how Jesus would handle such a situation in your place. He always turned first to His Heavenly Father for advice except for when He was spontaneously driven to act upon the loving leadings of His wide-open heart. Love is indeed the safeguard that ensures that your actions are righteous, as Love is in perfect alignment with the Divine Heart.
Until such times when your heart can take the full lead, refrain from being at the beck and call of other powerful emotional triggers, as many of them are not rooted on sound foundations. You are not divinely assigned to ‘terminate’ those you deem as erring. Rather, you are assigned to shine your light and become a living inspiration—not a living deterrent.”
