Hard headed greed and an unwillingness to make common sense changes is fueling worldwide unrest. Ignorance and arrogance fuels those wanting to wield power and control outcomes. The welfare of the common good of all is denied by modern day ‘Scrooges.’ Twisted ‘Scrooges’ insist upon bending nature to their will. This is the height of hubris and incredible folly.
Harsh words, but true. Intransigence and an unwillingness to change is only prolonging the inevitable. What will be the cost?
Why Blessing Oils?
Use blessing oils to bless everyone, including yourself, friends, family and our world. Pray that a transformation occurs within the human heart of everyone.
Through your act of ‘blessing everyone’ you send a clear and loud message at a deep subconscious level calling for global harmony and unity. We must transcend our differences reflected in the challenges facing our world. These challenges we’re facing are too enormous for any one person, family, organization, group or country to eradicate. We must work together and ally with others with similar intent to produce global change.
