Rising Above the Rancor

Let's begin with the definition of the word rancor from Dictionary.com:

Rancor –noun
bitter, rankling resentment or ill will; hatred; malice.

Think of the people in your life that are feeling any of the above emotions. What are the causes?
  • the economy
  • unemployment
  • AIG
  • the auto industry
  • the banking industry
  • the bailout
  • their mortgage
How many other reasons do your friends and family have for feeling the bitterness, ill will and malice that seem to permeate the country right now?

Now think of those of us on our spiritual journey. How can we help?

It's a question I've been asking for a while. Those of us who follow the Law of Attraction understand how to create the right vibrational frequencies as we move through our lives, so the concern is not there. It's more about those who have yet to discover how to manifest what they want in their lives. People come to the Law of Attraction on their own timing, but what can we do to help them survive the current crises?

For the last week or so, I've been using my understanding of manifestation to help a friend deal with the loss of her husband, a personal friend of mine as well. He and I are about the same age so the death hit our circle of friends particularly hard. We've all spent time together discussing the loss of a genuinely good guy and our own mortality. We spoke of maintaining our health and then we veered into spiritual territory.

Although there were plenty of differing opinions on methods of spirituality, it seems the common thread is that our friend is in a place of reward, whether you believe in heaven, paradise, nirvana or some other iteration. The idea is freedom from form. Our friend is no longer tied to his body and has gone on to another plane of existence. Our friend is going to be great.

On the other hand, the survivors are the ones that are having the tough time. People have guilt built in through teaching and indoctrination. We've all been told that it's a sad experience when someone dies, but the flip side is that we're told that things are better for the dead person. Personally, I've been confused by that dichotomy from the time I was old enough to understand what death was. That's what we deal with now.

And for my friends wife, that's what she's trying to come to grips with. Yes, her husband is in a better place, but what does she and her family do going forward? He was the family foundation to the point the even the eulogy said he was the glue that held the family together. He loved his kids. He loved his wife. And now he's gone. That's why I'm trying to manifest an ease to her pain. It will come. Others are wishing her well and there is the healing component of time.

But what can we do for the general population? Can we bring forth a successful ending to the mess the country's in on a quicker time frame? Before reading Dr. Wayne Dyer's book in Inspiration, I might have thought the task was too big, but now I know that there are no limits. Would it be possible for you and I to starting vibing a better future for the country and the world? If your answer is yes, then join me and let's get it done.
