ABC News/Nightline did a recent piece on the plight of unmarried black women. The content essentially asks if the standards black women set are too high or are their too few black men. This is a topic that can be dealt with in a worldly sense, supported by facts, statistics and anecdotal evidence. It can also be analyzed from a spiritual and Universal Law perspective.
Typically, as in the Nightline piece, statistics referencing black men without college degrees, incarcerated, unemployed or gay were used to support the thesis that there are not enough available partners for black women. The fallacy in that approach is that, statistically speaking, one must also reduce the number of black females that are incarcerated, unemployed, gay or without college degrees to be accurate in terms of availability.
From a spiritual perspective, one might start with contemplating Proverbs 23:7, which states “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Applying this to the topic, if black women, or any one for that matter, think that there is a lack of anything, that person will experience that lack. In thinking that there are few suitable black men to marry, that thinking will create it as personal experience.
Further, one must consider what is in their heart versus what words are coming out of their mouth. One can know what is on their heart, by looking at the result of their experience. Meaning, if there is a lack of marriageable men, lack of money or an abundance of professional accomplishments, one can then conclude that the aforementioned beliefs in lack and abundance are what resides in the heart. Otherwise the scripture stated above is incorrect.
This dovetails nicely into the Universal Law of Mentalism, which states that the Universe is mental. One knows from experience that nothing manifests without thinking about it first. It is impossible to make or buy anything without first thinking about it. One cannot move a limb or body without thought. Thinking makes it so.
And finally, perhaps most importantly, as one contemplates nature, it is easy to notice that everything is in balance. There is enough air and food for humans, animals and insects. There is enough water for fish to swim in and mammals to drink. And, there are enough males and females throughout the world to procreate and sustain a species. Since there is balance throughout nature, one has to conclude that God would not leave black women out in providing balance for them.
