The terrorist attacks in New York and Washington on September
11th (911) are an emergency WAKE UP call for this country, as the
world leader, to go beyond violence and finally surrender to mutual
co-operation and love.
We, as a nation, are now on a common playing field with virtually
every country on this planet who have been violated by either war
We can no longer calmly read the morning newspaper or watch the
television news and be detached from the hatred and violence we
see all around us and throughout the world. We have been violated
or raped, to put it more strongly, and we will never feel quite
as safe as we did before September 11th, 2001.
PEACE BEGINS WITH ME is a bumper
sticker I used to have and it certainly applies here and now.
- As the world's # 1 supplier of arms and weapons - which are
often used against ourselves - we can no longer play this heartless
- As the world's # 1 model of domestic violence, murder and teenage
suicide - we must heal ourselves.
It starts with each one of us and it means going beneath our individual
anger and resentment to the deep sadness that produced it and eventually
to the spring of love and joy that lies deepest within us all.
It cannot happen painlessly, as we see this enacted on a world
wide basis, but it must initially begin with each one of us. The
extraordinary thing that happens, when we make this shift in consciousness
( from ego to soul consciousness ) is that we begin to not only
see through different eyes but we also see our part in a slowly
evolving loving plan.
One of my favorite quotes is from the LITTLE
PRINCE and it applies here :
"IT IS ONLY THROUGH THE HEART THAT ONE
SEES CLEARLY - WHAT IS ESSENTIAL IS INVISIBLE TO THE HUMAN EYE".
When we begin to see through the heart we will begin to see beneath
the surface violence and hatred that permeates and separates our
world, such as the recent terrorist attack, and we will realize
that the forces of light and love have propelled these acts to the
surface of our consciousness so that we can take the necessary action
to claim our deepest urge to unite, love and cooperate with one
It's time to wake up and take your part in this universal loving
plan. Do you want to live in a world of love and compassion or a
world of hatred and revenge.
It's our choice and COMPASSION AND
PEACE BEGINS WITH OURSELVES.
ONLY LOVE HEALS
