Why I am done.
I am tired. For years I have tried to promote social justice and freedom for the American people. I have never had a huge platform; I am just like you. Facebook and blogs have been my stage with little to gain. I wrote a small piece on Facebook describing that the only way the United States can have true unity, peace and healing is through a mass spiritual awakening. I am done discussing politics and done with most social issues.
Not good for the soul
One may say, Nate, you should continue the good fight! I would answer, of course I am going to continue the good fight. However, the fight I will wage will no longer be one that continues to stir opinion and hurt my soul. I do not think I have ever been more mentally sick due to what I see currently in America. This is not good for my mental health; it is not good for my personal life. I will leave it to others to do what they feel in their heart they must do.
I am at a point in which I am going to do the best I can to seek the Kingdom within. To discover who I am as a human being and maybe through my discovery and actions in life it may be an influence towards the spiritual growth in others.
I am dedicating myself to a search within. Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is within. If this is the case, it would behoove me to only be interested in this kingdom. Why would anyone want to continue a fight of flesh and blood when flesh and blood is not the enemy? Our enemy is ignorance of our true Selves. My objective is to know God and make him known. To become one with the Father as Jesus was one with the Father; this was the prayer off the master. This is also my prayer.
