HISTORY, or rather our ability to access time in a way that acknowledges the past, is a miracle providing us with a perspective of who we have been, who we are and who we are yet to be. As a high school student I recall being utterly bored in HISTORY classes. I was not terribly excited about taking HISTORY in college. Until I met Mr. George. He was a fabulous HISTORY teacher. He brought HISTORY to life. As I listened to his stories about the personalities of historical figures I was inspired to know more, to look more deeply into HISTORY. Reviewing the past, we can see where we have been, what we have done, what we continue to do and what has been lost. Reviewing HISTORY from a place of Love and Light and Awareness we can choose what we will do to create our collective future. We can choose to recapture healthy ways of being that have been lost. We can choose to eliminate ways of being that no longer serve the world as a global community. Although our HISTORY includes conflict, violence and other things that we wish to eliminate, it also includes love, community, ingenuity and an ever-expanding capacity for spiritual understanding. These are the things to hold as precious and bring forward with focus and intention into our global community.
