A coordinated, mastermind collaborative effort to attack, damage, destroy and kill in India. My first glimpse of this horrifying event was on AOL, in a moment when I was peacefully checking and responding to emails from around the world. I sat there with my mouth open and tears in my eyes as I watched the horror of those attacks in India. I kept imagining what it must be like to be enjoying a lovely dinner or walking through the lobby or sitting contentedly near the swimming pool, sipping a cocktail. And then, in an instant, death and destruction all around, blood, screaming, pain.
For what reason? Why are these people so intent on destruction rather than creation, separation rather than oneness? What has to happen for a loving consciousness to enter that part of the world and that sect of humanity?
Is there anything we can do, right here, right now, to alter the consciousness of a growing sect of hatred indoctrinated people? Can we raise our own consciousness to a high enough level that the energy of love and creation pours forth into their consciousness? Is there enough power in thought and prayer and love to dissipate and eliminate hatred?
Let’s start with out own personal surroundings – the people, places, animals and activities – and send love and appreciation for what we have and what we can touch with our eyes, ears, hands and hearts. Now is the time to pray for those we love, those we fear, those who hurt us and those who want to destroy us. Everyone needs love in their heart. Hatred is merely the absence of love. How can we share our love so powerfully that we help everyone to get back to love?
