An Important Message from Rev. Tara Lang

As we all know, cities across the US are picking up the pieces from several days of violent riots, vandalism, and looting. What does this say about the state of humanity?

To begin with, the Spirit of the Lotus is not asking you to turn a blind eye to the death of an unarmed African American man, George Floyd, at the hands of a police officer. If you need to protest, then protest. However, in doing so, please do not go over the will of others, and do not harm others or destroy property. Protest peacefully with love in your hearts.

The story of Mr. Floyd is indeed tragic, and it is important not to suppress what we are feeling. However, it is most important that we remember to stay detached and come from a universal perspective. What does it mean to be detached? As stated in The Virtues Project:

Detachment is experiencing our feelings without allowing them to control us. We step back and look at things objectively. We let go and accept what we cannot change. We detach from others’ choices knowing that their spiritual work is not ours to do. We choose how we will act rather than just reacting. We step away from the harmful cravings . . .

Right now, we have many negative distractions:

· COVID-19;

· Deaths due to cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses;

· PTSD due to not only warfare on foreign soil, but being on the front lines of the Corona virus battle;

· Depression and suicide;

· Poverty;

· Violence;

· The rise of child, spousal and elder abuse with the shelter-in-place orders; and

· The list goes on . . .

Remember, we are ONE people. We are not here to judge each other. All that is occurring before our eyes originates from the past . . . asking us to forgive and have compassion for those who do not know and understand. Humanity is going through a healing crisis. The cancer in humanity’s body is being exposed to the Light. We must not ignore it, or it will continue to grow. The cancer is a looking glass that reflects what is inside of us . . . all that we have kept buried for lifetimes. Before we can enter the “land of milk and honey,” we must go through the eye of the needle without these dreary reflections and/or baggage.

Scientists believe that homo sapiens, the first modern humans, evolved between 200,000 to 300,000 years ago. The science community believes that our original ancestors all came from Africa (determined by mitochondrial DNA). Human beings also have a powerful biological connection to the sun. We depend on it for our very survival. The Caucasian, or light-skinned human, began to evolve approximately 60,000 to 70,000 years ago when a group migrated towards higher latitudes which did not have as much sunlight. The body had to adjust, essentially removing much of the melanin from the skin which interfered with the production of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps regulate over 2,000 genes in our body. Human beings are the only known species to have successfully populated every corner of the world, thereby impacting the global environment.

If you look at this from a universal perspective, we all originated from the same Sun, the Great Central Sun. Humans need sunlight to survive, and wherever the rays of the sun shed light, humans can and do exist. Seeing black, brown, red, yellow, or white skin is but an illusion. The color of our skin started for the ability to survive on this planet and to acclimate to its environment. Color heals and can also blind us from the truth that there is only One. We are now entering a realm of crystalline consciousness where all color becomes clear crystal fire light.

The state of humanity is where it needs to be. We are all being purified to some degree, and our physical bodies of color are very temporary. One day we will no longer need it; we are star children . . . star seeds . . . children of Light and Energy. We are children of our One Parent, Father/Mother God. We have no beginning and no end. We are all that and more . . . I AM.

With Love & Blessings,

Rev. Tara
