The Day the World Grew Smaller


It was early in the morning on September 11, 2001 when I walked into the men's dressing room of my health club. Immediately I saw several people watching the TV screen in shocked silence and I noticed that they were seeing an airliner crashing into the world trade center. At first I thought they were watching a movie replay of Independence Day and I chuckled to myself and made some wisecrack.

When I rapidly became aware that this was actually happening - the world suddenly grew much smaller and and I felt a tremendous sense of being violated. I was no longer separated from the turmoil and strife throughout the world that I had safely observed in the morning newspaper or evening news - I was now part of it !

I also began to feel a compassionate sense of commonality in that I could now identify, on a feeling level, with the sense of helplessness and powerlessness that many must feel when a senseless act of terror effects their life.

I liked what I felt because now I felt more in tune with the disenfranchised and disempowered on our planet and the realization that we as a society can no longer ignore them.

I also felt extremely grateful that my work as a therapist was, in it's own minute way, helping to open the hearts of many spiritually disenfranchised and disempowered people.

September 11th was a wake up call to me that the world had grown much smaller and that everyone's pain and terror was now mine.
