Every bit of it is about economics. Every bit of it, without exception. Everything about religion is about economics. Everything about politics is about economics. And everything about economics is personal satisfaction. Everyone is personally motivated to do the best that they can possibly do for themselves.

Esther (and Abraham and Jerry)
If Abraham said it, it must be true. In this case however, the truth is a bit hard to get at and I think I need a little help. For now, I can assume this is true.
But if true, I’m wondering if Abraham might consent to work with members of our government, because if we “COULD” get more people on board with some of these concepts, it might become apparent that we are in fact – – all connected. That what affects one, therefore affects us all. Yet this isn’t holding up with regard to economics.
What I can see as I look around, is great disparity, economically. And it can be a strain to see that most or perhaps all of the suffering is simply NOT “allowing” the good in. Nor can I believe that all of us from North to South and East to West are going to become philosophers in order to comprehend this.
We can see the toad and the stars in Heaven are not the same and therefore, do not experience the same fate. Nor do any two of us walking this planet. We are each unique – different and are experiencing different paths, perhaps according to our needs? abilities? or some fluke accident of birth? To my mind, issues of consciousness are at play, as are qualities of heart, many even sacrifice personal needs for the sake of others. So how to reconcile?
Re-reading Abraham’s words, it becomes apparent that the issue I was uncomfortable with isn’t IN Abraham’s words, but in me. For there is nothing in Abraham’s words – – or mine which exclude the truth in the other. How quickly we tend to judge. . . . Jan
