spiritual sustenance. In practice, most religion does exactly the opposite.Common sense would tell you that any worthy religion would have as its missionto unite and empower. Most religion provides the counterpoint to that.Is there a wrathful and omnipotent god who will damn you to eternal torture if youdo not follow His rules?Compare the actions of our governments and religions to those of the humanego. Ego likes to tell us that we are small. We respond by pretending we arebig. Ego judges, condemns, and is often confused and afraid. It, like our religions and governing bodies, fears loss of power.But what
power really?Because of the propaganda of the world, most people think that power is thecapacity and willingness to manipulate, dominate, enslave or cheat. Part of whatwe are in this life to learn is that the basis of any real power is love.How do we move beyond the old conceptualizations of power? How do webecome more truly powerful beings? How do we evolve. One powerful way isvia what I call Heart Propaganda.To move beyond the destructive input of disempowering propaganda, we cansimply choose to make use of our own heart propaganda, the repetition of truthsabout life, repeating of important beliefs, and the visioning of a loving,harmonious planet.Heart Propaganda can help clean up or de-bug our internal operating systemHow can you make use of this tool?
First, get clear about what is important to you. Clarify what youbelieve about why you are here. Then, live your life with thatbeing important.
Find ways to repeat empowering beliefs to yourself. Write outor print the most inspiring ideas and post them where you canread them frequently, on your desk, car dashboard or refrigerator. Compose a brief statement about the mostimportant aspects of what you envision for yourself and your world.
The third, and maybe most important factor, is your awarenessof opportunities to practice your loving beliefs.
