Spirit within Organized Labor...

To all of us, angels represent our connection to our spirit. They are the messengers that deliver the words from the spiritual realm. Saints, in all religions, live the life of the spirit here on earth. Determined Gods, Gods without regard to self, point the way to a fulfilling life. Gods supply the angels with their messages. The angels in-turn deliver their messages to the saints. The saints in-turn apply those messages to lead their noble lives. All Gods of all religions represent an affirmation of pure inherent good.

It’s been 2,000 years since the last God visited this earth. Angels stopped speaking to us long before that. Without these voices to guide us, is it even possible for a modern day, authentic saint to exist?

Many of us, after being disgusted by the hypocrisy of so called religious people and their dated religions, are able to discover the pure inherent good of existing Organized Labor. We see the people who are members and supporters of Organized Labor to be likened to tangible angels, saints, and Gods. We know that heaven and hell exist right here, not in some crack in the cosmic universe, or in a nonexistent fairytale land which every person describes in a different way. People who fight to edge our reality towards sanity, in all of our relationships, are Gods in our real, tangible evolving heaven.

An important part of everyone’s life is an honest search for some higher power to believe in. All of us can find that higher power in the ideals, purpose, and aspirations of the Organized Labor movement. The concept and principles of Organized Labor, just as all religions, transcends, time, cultures and language. Organized Labor is an effort and an affirmation of all the good that exists within us. A Unionist lives an active determined life, working unselfishly for the betterment of all workers, especially Union members.

If the ethereal Gods have abandoned us, if we have fallen too far from the heavens, if there was never a real crack in the universe for us to escape, we must become our own Gods, determined Gods creating in this, our earth, our lives, our evolving heaven.

There is an openness and a confidence that is bestowed upon one who believes in and defends the undeniable, inherent, spiritual good of Organized Labor. Believers in the strengthening and the evolution of society are compassionate to all people who support the Brotherhoods, Guilds, Associations, of free, independent Unions, either as employers or employees, individuals when acting as capital or as labor when representing the best interests of the objects and material that make up the spiritual miracle of Organized Labor.

All active members of organized labor; believers in Organized Labor and the supporters thereof, are perhaps the new missionaries of a modern vision of hope. Perhaps, even unknowingly, the words of the Gods are already tattooed upon our tongues...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
