“Which One Are You?”

“Which One Are You?”

By Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox

There are just two kinds of people on earth today,
Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.
Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man’s wealth
You must first know the state of his conscience and health.
Not the humble and proud, for, in life’s little span,
Who puts on airs is not counted a man.
Not the happy and sad, for the swift counting years
Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears.
No, the two kinds of people on earth I mean
Are the people who lift and the people who lean.
Wherever you go you will find the world’s masses
Are always divided in just these two classes.
And oddly enough you will find, too, I mean,
There’s only one lifter to twenty who lean.
In which class are you?
Are you easing the load
Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?

Each of us has been given an incredible divine inheritance. All we need to do is to wake up and stop dying a little every day so we may master our own lives.

A New Heaven

A New Heaven

May more and more of us awaken to God in these chaotic times, pregnant with both danger and opportunity. May we live the words of the Christian mystic Meister Eckhart who wrote, “The eye with which I see God is the same eye as that with which he sees me. My eye and the eye…

“Near Life” Experiences

“Near Life” Experiences

Life is a gift. It is given without instructions, directions, or an owner’s manual. Life is a performance with no dress rehearsal and a great symphony with very few encores. Some people have near death experiences, yet what if we focus more on the “near life” experiences? True living means giving all that we are…
