As I watch the film clips and photographs of the immigrants seeking asylum at our southern border, my heart cries not only for those people but also for their ancestors, many of whom were indigenous peoples who were shuffled around time and again while the white people stole their land.
Doesn't anyone realize that most of the immigrants are of Native American descent mixed with the Hispanic blood of the Spanish conquistadors? Thus current assault on them is but a continuation of the oppression of those who were here in the western hemisphere before the white Europeans came and savagely conquered and took the lands.
The United States of America purports to stand for freedom for all, however, it--we--if you are white, we have selectively excluded others who do not fit into our carefully manicured image of "Americans." These people are immigrants, but they are Americans, too.
Part of my husband's family was given a King's Land Grant from the King of Spain several centuries ago including what is now the City of San Antonio. Even their rights to that land are questionable because they became part of the conquering force. When that land became a part of Texas and then the United States, they had to come across the border from Mexico, what had been their land. Over the centuries, the Mexican people became a mixed group of both Spanish and Indian ancestry, with other ethnicities in there, too.
I, as are many in the United States and in the world, appalled by the cruelty with which the U.S. immigration laws or policies are being enforced. The practice of separating families at the border and sending children to distant places far from the parents is abhorrent, as is the turning away of those who seek asylum from horrendous gang violence in their native countries. Does anyone remember that we, the U.S., used to finance the wars of dictators in those same places?
The U.S. is not using its power and wealth kindly or civilly. We have become bullies around the world, especially along our own border, rather than the leaders of freedom, as we used to consider ourselves. We have allowed our own rights as determiners of national laws and actions to be surrendered by those who are supposed to represent us. We are not a "one nation under God" by any measurement. Whether viewed from a secular of spiritual point of view, what is happening now is unethical and immoral and we must demand that it stop now!
Even as we exercise our rights as citizens of the United States, we must also turn to Spirit to guide us in interceding in this hateful process. We are all one, and whatever we do or allow to be done to others, we do to ourselves.

Fall in love with yourself? As songstress Whitney Houston sang, "the greatest love of all is deep inside of me." And it's inside of you, too. People are always looking outside of themselves to find love. Everyone needs love; it is essential to growing up living a healthy life.
Our parents, teachers, and ministers forget to tell us that
WE ARE LOVE ourselves. We are made in the image and likeness of a Creator who is the essence of love. Life may deal us difficult conditions, but once we know that we are love, we can choose to meet whatever comes to us with love.
I clearly remember when Rev. Jim Rosemergy, a Unity minister, said that the only love you'll ever feel is the love that flows forth from you. What a transformational concept. WE ARE LOVE, AND WE HAVE TO EXPRESS THAT LOVE TO FEEL IT AND ACT FROM IT IN OUR LIVES!
So, what next? How do you use this idea? In order to feel the love that we already are, you have to put it to work in everything you do, from grocery shopping, to errand running, even to big decision making. Will you be perfect at first? Probably not, if you're living in a human body. You can begin making it a habit to pause before every reaction in your day and choose to respond with love. It may change your response, which is better than reacting in a knee-jerk answer. As you practice coming from love, the habit will grow and you will notice changes in the love you feel yourself and in the way others respond to you. Falling in love and expressing the love that you are brings hidden treasures in your life.
AFFIRM: I AM LOVE, AND I EXPRESS THAT LOVE IN EVERYTHING I THINK,
SAY AND DO.
Please check out our other pages and leave a response or a prayer request for us. Let us know how this spiritual practice works for you.

Being an avid tree hugger, this link immediately caught my eye on facebook and I thought I'd give you the link for the website. There is no doubt in my mind about the healing nature of trees, and indeed of the healing qualities of all nature. As we open our minds and hearts, we are filled with ancient knowledge that is just as valid now as it was then. Consider that many modern medicines come from the natural world and have been passed down through the years through medicine men and shamans. Aspirin is a good example, but scientists are finding new information every day from the rainforests to the vegetable garden about how plants can heal us.
Has it not crossed anyone else's mind that plants were put here for the express purpose of being healing agents?
Then let us give thanks for our awakening vision of the created world having everything we need for our healing.
www.shamanswell.org Those beautiful trees we see everyday all around us can be valuable tools to help in our healing processes.
