“Change For the Highest and Best Good”

          An old German proverb says, “To change and to change for the better are two different things.”  We read the paper, watch TV “breaking news”, which in many cases is nothing more than thinly disguised negative talk shows, and we might very well ask, who needs this kind of entertainment?

          I know statistics can be manipulated, but I’ve heard several people quote that we are actually living in one of the most peaceful periods in recent history.  That news has not made headlines of late.  Who and what am I to believe? Rather than trying to see if such a statement is true, or who might have said it first, perhaps I can get my best answer by checking in with my higher Self.

          If I am finding myself more apprehensive, more fearful, more stressed, heavily influenced by negative information pouring in, rather than adding to such fear I must first be willing to be open to truth. Any change I wish to see or experience, it is up to me to see I am changing for the better. In other words, look for the good for a change.  Good really is out there and I find it by looking “in here”—within.   Peace, tolerance, good will, all these conditions are closer than our breath, in unlimited supply, waiting to be recognized and activated.

          With all the giving this season, let’s remember to give a little love, give a little joy, a little understanding, a little forgiveness. They don’t cost a dime and the supply is endless once we seek them out. And we won’t have to follow a star to find them for they all reside within our hearts. Simply make sure that whatever change you are seeking now and throughout the coming year is for the highest and best good for all people throughout the world.

          In Joy,


                   Rev. Pat


          My conscience reveals what is in my heart and together they reveal that love, peace, and joy all begin with me.
