Matt 13:57 
Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house." 
Unity Quote 
Prophet--One who receives the inspiration of Spirit, understands spiritual law, and
imparts it to others. The prophets of old seemed to stand between God and the
people; it was through them that the people received divine guidance. Charles Fillmore

Meta-Musing: The Prophet's Dilemma

What comes to your mind when you hear the word "Prophet?" You may envision a Biblical prophet bringing the "Word of God" to the masses, or maybe a man in tattered clothing standing on the side of the road with a sign that says "The End Is Near." The definitions you will find in dictionaries cover a wide range of concepts. In Truth, there is a prophet within each of us. Unfortunately, due to what I call "The Prophet's Dilemma," many of these prophets are imprisoned, in hiding or otherwise silenced.

The simplest definition of "prophet," is "one who speaks forth the the Word of the Lord." It is someone who is so attuned to God; Spirit; Universal Truth, that they can see the Big Picture. They understand the works of  Spiritual Principle, and  can see the coming effects of the causes we are sending forth.

While prophets may appear to be predicting the future, in Truth they are simply stating the obvious as one who knows Law, or Principle. A parent can say "don't touch" to a child about to touch the hot surface of the stove. The parent  KNOWS the child will have a painful experience; cause=effect.

Prophets do not speak out for power or prestige, rather from a desire to, as the old song goes, "accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative." How active is YOUR inner prophet?

Why would anyone not express the Truth that is in their heart...itching to come create positive circumstances and eliminate negative ones? Fear is the most likely culprit here. In the Bible, if the recipient of a message did not like its content, they would simply kill the messenger.

We all have an innate desire for acceptance and approval. This comes from the essence of our being as One in God. What a prophet has to share can be controversial, confrontational, and calling for change. Speaking out requires risking disapproval and rejection. But if the message is not shared, the prophet experiences the frustration of not being able to deliver what is inside.

Prophets are not historical or mystical beings of the past. They are ageless, timeless, and in every person. Contemporary prophets can be seen everywhere. They are willing to risk rejection, slander and ridicule for the message that is calling to be free.

Who are some of these prophets? An unlikely example is Michael Moore. With his movies such as "Bowling for Columbine," "Sicko," and "Capitalism! A Love Story," he fearlessly speaks his Truth. Whether we agree with him or not, we must admit he has makes us think.

If Spirit is nudging you to speak your truth, I invite you to do so. What is begging to be expressed? Is your passion the environment, stopping violence, rebuilding family values, peace, integrity, virtue or something else? You do not need to be aggressive. Speak your Truth...and do so with love. You were given this message as a gift to others or to the world. Could you be wrong? Absolutely. Could you be right? Of course!
Could you be rejected? Yes! Could you be respected? Yes, yes! It doesn't matter. What matters is delivering the message you were given.

One of my favorite songs, "The Greatest Love of All," has a line that gives me courage when I have a need to speak my Truth. It says, "And if you find that special place that you've been dreaming of, leads you to a lonely space...find your strength in Love." Love God. Trust God. Speak your truth.

So...go for it! Speak LOVE! RevAli
