| ||Seeking balance in free enterprise! ~ All for the greater good! ~|
| ||Those who take the initiative to create and provide a livelihood for |
people deserve to stand on a higher rung on the ladder but everyone on
the ladder deserve a level of prosperity!
Money needs to be put in the hands of those who can use it for the
greater good, which is above self seeking!
In a society the strong must take care of the weak but then the weak must become strong of themselves!
Imbalance is what creates big government, which will always have to step in and fill a void!
Balance is seeing the greater good, the vision of what America and the World can be!
For the people, for all the people, not just for special interest!

" And a merchant said, "Speak to us of Buying and Selling.
And he answered and said:
To you the earth yields her fruit, and you shall not want if you but
know how to fill your hands.
It is in exchanging the gifts of the earth that you shall find abundance
and be satisfied.
Yet unless the exchange be in love and kindly justice, it will but lead
some to greed and others to hunger.
When in the market place you toilers of the sea and fields and vineyards meet the weavers and the potters and the gatherers of spices, -
Invoke then the master spirit of the earth, to come into your midst and
sanctify the scales and the reckoning that weighs value against value.
And suffer not the barren-handed to take part in your transactions, who
would sell their words for your labor.
To such men you should say,
Come with us to the field, or go with our brothers to the sea and cast
For the land and the sea shall be bountiful to you even as to us.
And if there come the singers and the dancers and the flute players, -
buy of their gifts also.
For they too are gatherers of fruit and frankincense, and that which
they bring, though fashioned of dreams, is raiment and food for your
And before you leave the marketplace, see that no one has gone his way with empty hands.
For the master spirit of the earth shall not sleep peacefully upon the
wind till the needs of the least of you are satisfied. "

| ||Let me release all in me that keeps me blind!|
To feel the connection, to feel the bind!
The Kingdom within, to truely find!
The foundations of sin, I no longer want to feel!
Lead me through the straight and narrow, to what is real!
You said: " Cast your burdens on me "
Help me also, to help other see!
To release fear, bitterness, anger and hurt in the heart,
Is the best place to start, to touch, to feel, all that is fine!
To embrace and celebrate, all that is Divine!
At times, I feel a tear in my eye,
Sometimes its an all out cry,
So happy, bound in the truth that I found!
So help me release, so I can truely feel and see,
To forever fly with Thee, is where I want to be! ~ Larry O. Blevins ~ 7 Aug 11
