Many are heavy these days with emotions that pull deep on all levels and are felt in body so strongly that all strength is gone. All laughter seems to be a thing of the past. All desires numb.
I have noticed that when I feel these emotions that it is because I feel so helpless. I feel what has happen to the world. Where has all the Light gone? Why are these people wanting to kill so many innocent? Why don't they just put down their guns and remember that they are killing family members,innocent dying and children scared for life.
History repeating itself
I watch the news and I see the people migrating escaping from the horrors of war, the long lines of people crossing the land in mass. I see for the first time how our ancestors must have crossed the land on foot. I see for the first time how wars have been fought on land miles and miles of land, men on their feet walking to war. I see for the first time history repeating itself right in front of my eyes.
The difference is that while I watch detached many are suffering, I feel helpless and I feel for them. I wonder why we have borders that keep us from our good? I wonder why there is no balance that created such a flow?
How can one man be so selfish to destroy with out heart many helpless? How many men take up arms without care of who dies for an idea?
I wonder why they do not all work it out to the benefit of all concerned, with talking and council for the best of all, why is there a need for arms, and egos fighting for their right without considering the good of the women and children, the elderly, and feeble. What gets into mankind to make them not care for anyone but their ideas, and their righteousness?
As I contemplate, and I do alot, I have gone through pure anger, frustration, fear of my safety as well as all those who walk across the land. I contemplate the solution, recognizing the solution will be found after all the storm of the wars and pain they are feeling.
The solution is so simple that we must recognize we are one family.
We must recognize that there must be a way to balance the injustices of the world, the poverty, the needs.
The countries that have education, funds, and know how must recognize the family of man and work with the countries who are having problems, work with them to find a solution where no child should ever be hungry, where they can have a solution for the lack that is felt and experienced.
They must recognize that people who are happy will stay in their country and share their happiness, and welcome strangers. People only want to go somewhere else because it is safe and they can find a good life. However if they can create a good life in their country and are happy they will choose to stay with their family and life style ...
With the world working together to heal the issues that plague each country, there will be peace and harmony. When the world remembers we are family and work together to heal each other to understand each other, and experience each other in Love there will be no issues, no borders, no fears.
With the world finally understanding and accepting each persons Spiritual Beliefs, that too will end all the issues.
All the separation and killing within the religious groups is so sad. Sunni against Shi'ite, and once upon a time Protestant against Catholic, not so long ago we witnessed it in Ireland. How is it that there is so much discord even among the same religion?
When we learn to love one another regardless of religious beliefs, race, sexual preference, financial standing, country, culture, and all the things we use to separate us. When we finally start to see only the Love in the Heart of the person standing before us, with No separation... we will have Paradise on Earth.
Let everyone see the differences as spice of Life. Let us see that each culture or difference has so much to offer each other. As we see the Love in the eyes of neighbor, or the new person in town who happens to be from another country, the gratitude in the eyes of a person for a genuine greeting of Love and Respect... as we see this and feel this we grow in Love and the boundaries disappear.
Let us send Love the Planet and to all our Brothers and Sisters all over the world... Let us send LOVE AND CHOOSE TO MAKE THE CHANGE OF OPEN HEART FAMILY
