The Lord God said, “I have witnessed your affliction my people and have heard your cries of complaint against your oppressors, so I know well what you are suffering. Therefore, I have initiated an extraordinary Divine intervention, to rescue you from your oppressors; leading you out of the land of slavery into a good and gracious land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Exodus 3: 7-8
Moses and the Burning Bush
These are the words of the great “I AM” spoken to Moses, several thousand years ago through the burning bush. In these words were the Lord’s invitation to the Israelite people to leave behind the life of slavery that they had known under Egyptian rule and to embark upon a journey of freedom to a land as yet unknown which the Lord promised would be “flowing with milk and honey.”
Our own Burning Bush
As much as these were God’s words to the Israelites several thousand years ago, these are God’s words for us TODAY as we suffer under the oppression of our own slavery. In this case, the oppression God is inviting us to escape is the slavery of fear and the specific ways in which fear has come to rule our inner lives and the ways in which fear has manifest in our world in its various guises of consumerism, racism, discrimination, sexism, separation, hatred, environmental collapse, corporate greed, government corruption, violence and war. The Lord knows well how the world has suffered under the imprisonment of fear and as such, has initiated an extraordinary Divine intervention which promises to turn the world of fear into a world of love. And the great thing is that this new world that we are envisioning doesn’t require an exodus from where we are now. The land of milk and honey is right here in our very midst, if we but have the courage to set aside fear and instead, to choose love.
A Million Moses’
The extraordinary Divine intervention that God has initiated is in the form of what I will call today “A million Moses’.” The million Moses’ are all those on the planet who were gifted before they were even conceived, with the vision of a new world and who were born with both the knowing of what this world could look like and the passion to help make it happen. I have called these men, women and children “The Heavensent,” for that is exactly what they are – sent by God to turn the world from fear into love. You already know who you are. You have carried within you a vision for a better world. You know at the very deepest part of your being that the vision of the new world that you carry within you is possible. You possess the desire and the passion to want to do something about it and to be a part of making the new world real. Consider this your call….your own burning bush. You are the Heavensent. You are one of the million Moses’. Open your heart to how God is specifically calling you to help bring forth a world made of love, no longer controlled by fear. Knowing that the journey of billions starts with you – become familiar with your own inner fears and how they are controlling your life. Find tools for transcending those fears so that your inner terrain will be defined by contentment and love. Make decisions based in love instead of fear. Know freedom within yourself so that you can become acquainted with your own uniquely creative gifts through which you will find meaning, purpose and fulfillment and through which you will contribute to the betterment of the world. Then grab your staff and your wand and start sharing your magic so that others may also be free.
Thank you for your help!
