One thought on "The power of hope in the future" clifford cook says: September 25, 2016 at 8:53 am There is great hope for the future , life is getting better for many on earth , each year that goes by we are advancing and making changes , that makes out lives more comfortable , look at this comparison, People in the medievil times, No tv no radio no kettles no fridges to keep food fresh no water purifiers no decent means of traval no holidays no modern day farming machines no decent housing no proper schools no unemployment benefits adding security no diverse array of jobs to choose from no cars no means to be creative as we do today in art and and other means no mobile phones no smart phones no computers no dentits hardly any medicine no means to correct and aid vision no hospitals no means to clean amd disenfect no bathrooms to clean and dispose of waste products no museums no great means to communicate ho advanced medical treatments, Now see how looking back if you had non of these how much you was missing out on , and how much we have grown and advanced , we will do again in the future , advance and be better and have more nice things to fullfil our lives , Materialy there is hope , but we have to tackle things on earth that hinder us spiritualy and hold us back , on earth there are good people and there are bad people , and the bad are holding the good back and also other bad so bad people need to be put to sleep , Thats not harsh if done in compassionate means , not paintful , becuse becuase bad people are born bad , this is a fact of life , and they will take so much quality of life away from others that they will ruin there lives , peop!e that do bad things are uncaring , and so wont care for your pain when they effect you that will bring you down and not give you much hope for the future. So we need to change and purify and then make peoples lives more abuandant financialy , not millionaires but wealthier so they can enjoy there lives feel appreciated and not taken for granted , people need to be valued properly . This is being brought into effect as i type these words , septermber 2016 uk and u,s governments are bringing changes in to our societies creating a new system tjat serves everyone with the emphasis on making people wealthier safer and more abaundant and creating more opportunity Our real hope though lies not on earth but in heaven , many people are not that hopeful for the future , life can be hard and theres much trouble in our world at presant and has always been , this is for a reason there is a devine plan for humanity , and the world was created as a school of learning for angels to incarnate aspects of them selves and learn from a polarity between darkness and light , and to do that we have to experience dark times , life is eternal in heaven where we come from , our lives on earth are temporary , and we are only here to learn , real hope lies with heaven and heaven is 100 times better than earth with 8,000 per cent more material gifts than on earth , so we have a lot to look forward to , now you know why you are here and life on earth is temporary and a wonderful gift awaits all of us after we pass from this world , we can have hope , Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.Comment Name Email Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
