What is a Hero?

By The Prophet of Life

What is a hero to you? Is it character in a movie, or comic book or graphic novel? Is it someone who has fame? Is it a TV, movie star, pop  idol, Twiiter star, gamer or you tuber?  Is it someone who is incredibly wealthy? Is it a great politician? All of the aforementioned are typical heroes in most societies  but are they truly heroic?

A hero is someone who does something heroic. Is getting a 20 million dollar advance on a project heroic? Is making videos about the cool car you got as a result of You Tube royalties or that prank others heroic? Is having a hit record heroic? Is tweeting sarcastic things about others heroic? Is having all of the money in the world but very little left of your humanity heroic? Having fame, fortune, fans and followers may be admirable but it isn’ t heroic .

A real hero saves lives. A real hero puts their life on the line in order to protect others. A real hero selflessly does things for others. I would like for you to think of the kind of people who do these types of things as heroes. People like firemen, policemen and soldiers who put their lives on the line daily to insure that others survive. People who heal our sick, teach our children and help our elderly to live with dignity. People like legal aid lawyers who advocate for the poor against corporations and corrupt government officials. People like parents, who are there for you everyday. Who get up and go to work at a job they don’t like just to keep their families fed, clothed and sheltered. Parents who show up for their kids time and time again even if they are divorced and no longer have custody.

Heroes are often thought of a ordinary people who do extraordinary things. They run into a burning building to rescue a child. They wrestle a gun out of a shooter’s hands. They give their lives on the battlefields so that the rest of us may continue to enjoy our freedom. Heroes are people who act even when others don’t. Those aren’t the only kinds of heroes. There’s another kind of hero. These heroes are the people who do the right thing consistently. A hero can be made in the blink of an eye but they can also be made from a lifetime of consistent sacrifice. These heroes are not often given any accolades whatsoever. They work in the background tirelessly and thanklessly. It is time they too are given their due. Take time out of your day today, to thank one of the heroes in your life. It may be the only acknowledgement they have been given this year.

The Potential for Peace

By The Prophet of Life

Despite all of the wars, terror and hatred in the world, something extraordinary happened. The leaders of two nations, hostile towards each other sat down and talked about ending hostilities. The two nations were not from The U.S. and Russia. They were not warring factions in Syria. They weren’t Middle East Nations, African Nations or South American nations. The two leaders were from North and South Korea.

The two men,  Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in  met in South Korea. Kim Jong Un is the first North  Korean leader to set foot in South Korea in over 60 years.  The two agreed to work towards officially ending the Korean War (which never actually ended, a truce was just signed in the 1950’s), by the end of 2018. The two further agreed to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

American officials will claim that Un wants to settle things because of the current U.S. Administration’s verbal rhetoric and war mongering tone along with amping up sanctions against North Korea.  China will claim the move is due to its exertion of pressure on Un. It could also be something that Un had planned all along. Perhaps he kept pushing North Korea’s nuclear program so he could come to the negotiating table in a position of strength.

Whatever the reasons, the potential for a real and lasting peace is present. The momentum for peace and possibility of prosperity are in full effect. The wonderful promise however, will not be realized unless actions accompany the words by all parties concerned. Let’s not allow the euphoria of the moment to cloud our vision or take our eyes off the prize. Peace is a goal worth attaining and where peace goes, prosperity follows. The devil is in the details and the minutia of written contracts but if the commitment for peace is truly there, if the dedication towards success truly exists, then the consistent effort needed to be sustained throughout the difficulties involved in hammering out an agreement will be maintained.

Make no mistake about it, the lofty ideal of peace and the joy that everyone will initially feel will fade into the daily grind of negotiations.  The negotiations process will be difficult. It will try the patience of both sides. It will cause a desire to return to the predictable safety of the past, no matter how ugly, to be extremely tempting. I urge both sides to stay the course. Try to work things out., compromise. Achieving a lasting peace will not be easy but nothing lasting ever comes easily. Your people are counting on you to be the leaders your predecessors were not. The world is counting on you to not falter in your pursuit of peace. Achieving peace is never easy but peace is worth it.

Why both sides should Declare Peace!

A Quote About Global Leadership

For centuries, world leaders have made some really stupid decisions, leaving the rest of us to ask “What were they thinking? Lately, however, that question has evolved. In regards to decisions made by world leaders, we no longer ask, “What were they thinking?” We now ask “Were they thinking?”   —The Prophet of Life

A Blessing in Disguise

By The Prophet of Life

Have you ever had something bad happen to you, only to find out later that it was actually a blessing in disguise? Bad things happen to good people all the time but it while some hold on to the pain caused by bad things like it was a precious jewel, allowing that pain to hold them back from trying new experiences, others let it go and move forward with their lives.

It has been written that everything happens for a reason. It is true, everything does happen for a reason it’s just that the person it is happening to often doesn’t know what the reason was at the time things are happening to them. The reason usually only becomes clear in hindsight, after the incident has long passed and some perspective can be achieved.

So, what is the difference between the people who are devastated by the bad things that happen to them and those who seem to move beyond the trauma associated with the incident quickly? The people who move on quickly are often people in one of three categories: they are people of faith, spiritual people or people with a positive outlook.

People of faith often move beyond the bad things that happen to them because they have been taught through their religion that God watches over and protects them. They have a holy book, filled with stories and parables which illustrate this point. They have religious authorities that they can go to for guidance. They have a community of people who believe as they do, who they can count on for support. They move forward with the help of other people of faith as a member of a caring community.

Spiritual people believe in a higher power. They believe that higher power is ultimately   good and that bad things are a part of life. They seek to learn the lesson that the bad thing was sent to teach them. They move forward because they know that the bad thing

That just happened to them happened for a reason. They may not know the reason just yet but knowing that it happened for a reason gives them the strength to move forward.

People with a positive outlook on life may not have religion. They may not even believe in higher power. They are strengthened by their honest belief that good things can come out of bad and that every cloud has a silver lining. They may also be bolstered by thoughts of how much worse the bad thing could have been and count themselves as fortunate that the bad thing wasn’t a worse thing. They may also believe that something better is just around the corner. They move forward to get to that something better.

Are you in any of the three groups described above? Do you have a holy book, religious authorities and a community behind you? Do you believe that everything happens for a reason and search for the lesson in the event? Do you believe that every cloud has a silver lining?  Or…are you a combination of two or more of these three types? If so, congratulations, you have evolved a coping strategy for the bad things that happen in life. If you do not fall into one of the three categories mentioned, what is your coping strategy? How has it been working for you? Do you let the bad things that happen to you hold you back or do you move forward beyond them? The next time something bad happens to you and trust me, something bad will happen to you sooner or later, remember the type of people that move beyond the bad things that happen to them and see what you can use that will work for you.

Karmic Reincarnation Families

By The Prophet of Life

Have you ever met someone that you unexplainably drawn to? Someone whom you hardly knew or never met before, who you instantly trust and feel like you have known them for years? Have you ever met anyone who you instantly get a bad feeling about? These may not be merely feelings but manifestations of one school of reincarnation that believes not only are you reborn into a new body but that you are also reborn into the same group of souls y that have been like a family to you for many lifetimes. I call this a Karmic-Reincarnation Family. I will now discuss this as an offshoot of the concept of Spiritual DNA which was revealed to me many years ago (See my Speaking Tree Article “Spiritual DNA”).

A Karmic-Reincarnation Family is a group of souls that are familiar with one another. They have been together for many lifetimes. They often change roles in relation to one another. Someone who was another’s daughter in a past life is their mother in this life. Someone who was someone’s father in one life is their sister in this life. Someone who is another’s boss in this life was murdered by them in another life. There are many different combinations and they aren’t always members of the same family but can be ,members of a group of families, often living in the same area where they had in other lifetimes.

Karmic-Reincarnation Families manifest themselves in human behaviors. A daughter who is more mature, and clear headed than their mother could have been the mother in a past lifetime, to the one who is their mother in this lifetime. A sister who is very bossy or controlling to her sibling in their current incarnation could have been their father in a past lifetime. A boss who is particularly cruel to one particular employee who never seems to be able to leave that bosses employ in a current incarnation may have murdered the one who is their boss in a past lifetime.

So why are souls in Karmic families that swap positions within relationships from one incarnation to the next? Because souls take a journey through many lives and life is a learning experience. The group of souls that are in your Karmic-Reincarnation Family are on the journey with you. You are supposed to learn from each other. If one has done you wrong in one lifetime, you are given a position of power over them in another lifetime. Do you seek revenge or do you show them forgiveness and compassion? This is how you are tested. The beauty of it is that you have no physical memory of the events from a past life that cause you to feel a certain way about another person but your spirit does have a psychic memory through Spiritual DNA.

This can help humanity understand another concept that was revealed to me, the concept of Unity of Prophecy. The five Prophets of the five major religions, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam each in their turn, gave similar messages which emphasized different aspects of God to help humanity understand God. Think of the concept of Karmic-Reincarnation families in terms of the Jewish Ten Commandments, the Christian Doctrine of forgiveness the Islamic tradition of

So look at the people in your life. Is there anyone who are always mad at but don’t quite know why? Are these people who you are unexplainably attracted to or repelled by? Is there someone who is cruel towards you but you can’t figure out why? It could be that they are in your Karmic-Reincarnation Family and it could have to do with something that was done in a past life.

Fulfilling Your Destiny

By The Prophet of Life

Every human is born with a destiny. At birth, God whispers the same phrase to every person “The world is a better place because you were born.” The phrase is a prophecy. It is a prophecy that proclaims part of your destiny. It is a prophecy you are charged with fulfilling during your lifetime.

Part of your life mission is to find out how your life can fulfill this prophecy. There are many ways you can fulfill this prophecy. You can fulfill it through a lifetime of service to others. You can fulfill it discovering, creating or inventing something that benefits the world. You can fulfill it by saving the life of another living being.

You can fulfill this part of your destiny through service to others. Many professions, from doctors, to firefighters, to teachers to garbage workers can help fulfill God’s prophecy. Most people can understand how doctors, firefighters and teachers are included on the list because doctors and firefighters are perceived as saving lives.  Teachers are perceived as saving the future by educating children. Far fewer may understand how a garbage worker can be included on the list. Garbage workers help with diminishing the effects of disease. Many garbage workers become sick from diseases clinging to the refuse of people who are sick. In doing so, they contract an illness that many others might have contracted if the garbage was left out in the open in a public place.

You can fulfill this part of your destiny by discovering, inventing or creating something that benefits humanity. You can discover the cure for a disease. You can invent a machine that helps to clean up the environment. You can create a painting or a sculpture or a poem that uplifts people’s spirits or gets them to think about the big questions of life.  Any of these types of activities can make the world a better place, one soul at a time.

You can fulfill this part of your destiny by saving the life of another being. Saving the life of a person could enable that person to complete their fulfillment of this part of their destiny. Saving the life of another being, a plant or animal for instance is performing an activity that creates a direct effect for the being you are saving and future generations of that living being’s descendents.

Most people are not artists or writers. They cannot create an artistic or literary masterpiece. They are not doctors, or teachers. They live ordinary lives working mundane jobs for less money than they think they are worth. They can save a life, if not the life of a person, then the life of a plant or an animal. They can volunteer to help at a hospital or an orphanage. They can be help a stranger in need, They can join groups like Change Agents for Humanity to get ideas on what they can do.

The question is clear. Will the world be a better place because you were born? The answer may be unclear because in most cases, words alone will not satisfy it. Only your actions will create the answer to the question. What actions are you taking? How is the story of your life answering the question?
