MOTHER TERESA AND GANDHI



            MOTHER TERESA AND GANDHI

     
My name is  MOTHER TERESA. Once upon a time I had a dream that Mahatma Ghandhi and I came back to Mother Earth to give you some advice. We sat next to each other for a long, long time in a beautiful garden and looked at the BIG BOOK OF OUR LIFE and read our stories to each other about the last 40-50 years of our lives. Let me start with my later life, Dear Ghandaji the life that I call the dark night of my soul.

As you know I was a nun teaching in a girls school in India but whenever I left the school grounds I witnessed the poorest of the poor on the streets and this made a great impression on me. Here is how my second life's work happened. I was on a train going to a retreat in 1942 when I received an inner, guided message to leave my religious nuns who I loved very much, to leave teaching these young women in Calcutta, to leave my treasured vocation to begin a new way, that is, to embrace the reality of the poor and to serve them. It took many years for me to be excused from my other spiritual obligations but eventually, I became the foundress of a new order of nuns, The Missionaries of Charity. The first years I felt wonderful, filled with light  but when I was 50 years old a great sadness and sense of loneliness overtook me deep in my heart and confused me. I asked why? Why am I so tortured? Is it because I am sinful and weak. My priest spiritual directors helped me see that the darkness purified me of my imperfections and that it was an essential part of living out my mission of sharing the poor's spiritual poverty  because now I was poor like those I cared for. I began embracing spiritual suffering and actually experienced being spiritually unwanted, unloved and uncared for by God. This sounds terrible and it was until I understood how to transform the suffering into joy.

Nobody knew this, only my spiritual directors because I did not live like a pitiful person but adopted a radical ministry of hope, a radical ministry of joy, a radical ministry of pure faith, a radical ministry of glowing luminosity. I had a big, big inner secret. I looked totally happy and smiled with everyone but I was in inner agony. But only now could I understand the dying who felt unloved, only now could I understand the poor who were lonely, only now could I understand the unloved who were confused.

I bargained with God and said, if you hide my secret inner pain from others, I will actually BE LOVE, yes BE LOVE to all. If you hide my pain, I will BE COMPASSION, not only act compassionately but BE COMPASSION to all. If you hide my secret, I will SMILE AT ALL.

It took me time  to make peace with this bargain  but eventually the darkness itself became joy and my radiant smile hid my abyss of pain. I was like a nobody even to God and that was OK. I felt the tortures of my inner hell and that was OK.

My dearest Ghandhi, I hope this story has helped you understand my last years , my secret years.  and I leave you with a prayer I composed. It says

THE FRUIT OF SILENCE IS PRAYER
THE FRUIT OF PRAYER IS FAITH
THE FRUIT OF FAITH IS LOVE
THE FRUIT OF LOVE IS SERVICE
THE FRUIT OF SERVICE IS PEACE.

I bless you my brother . I bless all of you and I give you all a gift, MY SMILE.  Here TAKE IT !  And I sing this beautiful song for you, dear Ghandhi.(SONG)

Then I dreamed that Ghandhi spoke. He said, " I want to come back to Mother Earth to tell those living in the 21st century to practice a new non violence which we call ahimsa. As you know I defeated the oppressors with non violence and now you who are living  right here right NOW must practice ahimsa and telling the truth  which we call satyagahara. Do not fear seeing the truth, communicating the truth and living the truth. Ghandhi then said in my dream, I want to tell the truth to all of you. First, Mother Earth, the truth about food:

YOUR GMO FOOD
YOUR ANTIBIOTICED FOOD
YOUR CHEMICALLY SPRAYED FOOD
YORU FAUX FOOD
YOUR TRIPLE FRIED FOOD
YOUR ASPERTAINED FOOD
YOUR UNWASHED GOOD
YUR NUTRITION FREE FOOD
YOUR DISEASE CAUSING FOOD
YOUR INSECT DROPPING FOOD
YOUR FALSELY LABELED FOOD
YOUR EMPTY CALORIED FOOD
YOUR PESTICIEDED FOOD
YOUR POISONED BABY FOOD
YOUR MOLDY FOOD
YOUR BOTTOM FEEDER FOOD
YOUR FARMED FOOD
YOUR TRANSFAT FOOD
YOUR SUGURED FOOD
YOUR SALTED FOOD
YOUR FOOD THAT IS NOT FOOD.

OH Ghandhi, I said in my dream, this is terrible, horrible and a nightmare! Let me sing a song for this world so it does not feel so bad about it's food.(SONG

Then, in my same dream, Ghandhi  said this is not all, it is not only food that I am warning the 21st century about, they must stop the following as well:

DUMBED DOWN TV-------STOP IT
FEAR BASED JOURNALISM-------STOP IT
INSIPID STAR GOSSIPING-------STOP IT
SENSATIONALIZED SELFING------STOP IT
NARCISSISTIC YOU TUBE MAKING------STOP IT
ADDICTIVE TEXTING------STOP IT
IDEA PIRATING------STOP IT
COMPETETIVE UPSTAGING------STOP IT
ARROGANT OVERPOSSESSING------STOP IT
UNNECESSARY CONSUMING------STOP IT
VIOLENT VIDEO GAMING------STOP IT
SELF WORSHIPPING------STOP IT
GREEDY OVERPRODUCING-----STOP IT

OH Gandhi, stop stop, I am so sad listening to this  eventhough I hear you say these things in my dream. For those living now, it is all real and  we must warn all the people. We must sing to them and show them how to heal MOTHER EARTH.....This is a song that I will sing , maybe it will help.  (SONG)

Mother earth hears us as we sing into her heart and we are now

HEALING FRACKED MOTHER EARTH
HEALING NUCLEAR WASTED MOTHER EARTH
HEALING IRRADIATED MOTHER EARTH
HEALING SINKHOLED MOTHER EARTH
HELAING OZONED MOTHER EARTH
HEALING TORNADOED MOTHER EARTH
HEALING TSUNAMIED MOTHER EARTH
HEALING WARMED MOTHER EARTH

Thank you Gandhi for your message. Lets go back to sleep and dream some more . I will continue to send smiles to them even in my sleep and you can send non-violence. Then they will do their best, I know.
 
GOOD BYE EVERYONE,  GOOD BYE , NAMASTE, NAMASTE, GOOD BYE NAMASTE, GOOD BYE
