“Money is the root of all evil” – the bible
I told You there are many truths in the bible; this is the greatest of them all. Money is the number one source of the world’s problems. For those who refuse to become slaves to the financial system, Love’s innate desire to know personal freedom cuts off individuals from the abundance of resources the world has available, forcing creative and often criminal alternatives.
Many of Us have a difficult time believing that people are good by nature, that We were born perfect. A girl once told Me that this could not be true. She told Me that if a baby were born and left on its own in the middle of nowhere it would die, proving We are not perfect. I told her this was not true, that We are spiritual beings and that if this happened, the baby’s spiritual purpose was to teach Us that nothing can grow without Love. The baby was perfect; it was Our ignorance of Love that allowed it to die. Only if We do not learn from this lesson is the baby’s spiritual journey in vein.
Crime is another example of the ignorance of Love reflected in society. Essentially, criminals are protesting the life that was offered to them. Regardless the reason, their beliefs do not match those of the social system created for them, they inwardly know it is not true. They desire freedom but need money to enjoy life, so they find creative ways to make it.
Violent offenders such as rapists and murderers were not offered Love in the same capacity as the majority of Us. They see a violent, cruel and hurtful world and this is the reality they have come to accept, exacting the same pain on others. The Love they were taught to know is cruel and painful so that is the Love they become. Rape stems from guilt of natural sexual desires humanity has been taught to repress and feel guilty about. These individuals were never taught to know Love.
Other lesser crimes such as theft and organized crime are simply the manifestation of a reality these individuals have created as an alternative to the world the rest of Us accept. Our reality provides the necessity for this type of behaviour. The thief is protesting the rat race of life requiring them to work tirelessly to obtain that which exists in abundance, while the monetary system provides a market for inexpensive goods stolen from corporations and people with wealth at a discount to people who can’t afford them or are trying to save money to ‘get ahead’ in the very same rat race. For those who feel depression, seeing only the suffering and oppression of the world We created and sad to see what their Love has become, narcotics provide an alternate reality, creating a market for the drug cartels who sell them. Police use weapons to enforce laws Our nation provides, attempting to prevent criminals from choosing any reality but the corruption which was offered to them. Criminals are defending their right to manifest their reality using similar force, creating a market for illicit weapons and promoting further violence. It is a vicious cycle of people trying to express a desire for a better world in a reality that prevents them from knowing one.
Unfortunately, most people look at the ‘junkie’ in society and see imperfection. When I first came into this wisdom, I gave up My home and My possessions and spent two months living on the streets. I learned a lot of things from the beautiful people that call it their home. A young girl walked right up to Me one day out of nowhere, stared at Me for a few moments, then asked if She could sit with Me for a while. She started talking to Me poetically, the most beautiful, meaningful poetry I’d ever heard – all of it Her own, this was how She spoke. She went on for about five minutes and I didn’t ever want Her to stop. Then She laughed, turned to Me and said, “You know, I’m only like this because I’m waiting for God to come back.”
This time I laughed, “I know…”
She slapped My arm playfully and said, “I know You know, that’s why I told You, silly. You know He’s coming, You’re going to tell them, aren’t You?”
“I’m going to try.”
She hugged Me and said, “Don’t worry, they will listen to You.”
The question is, will You? This girl knows what the world should be like, She gave up on You. She’s waiting for You.
There is something very wrong with Our society and crime is one reflection of Our misguided ideology that should be a call for change. We do not need more police, We need to understand the root of the problem. Crime reflects the innate desire to know something other than what is offered by society. The problems exist within Our government, the laws they create and a social system not guided by morality. Is it a crime for the hungry man to walk into a store and steal a loaf of bread? Or is the real crime that the man starves while grocery store shelves are full of food?
Just like the newborn child, the criminal is perfect. Their spiritual journey is to reveal a society created in ignorance of Love. Only if We do not understand this, is the criminal’s journey in vein.
