Are we powerless in the face of such hatred, or are we called to embody a new possibility, one that heals instead of hates, one that offers a blessing instead of a curse?
Are you willing to commit at least 15 minutes on Saturday to offer a blessing to those suffering in Vegas and throughout the world? What about Puerto Rico, or Syria? It’s hard to focus on one particular place or event when there are so many that need our prayers. We know that massive synchronized meditations like this can have a powerful effect, but only if we come together as one heart to bless and heal.
A Beautiful Message from Caroline Myss
This mounting madness is not about guns. The cowardly, money-grabbing, weak, spineless politicians are right about that. Guns are the result of a population that lives, eats, breathes – and believes – the endless diet of fear-based spin it has been fed since 911 about the world “out there” and impending invasions from evil foreigners and propaganda fueling hatred between the various different types of Americans: Black and White, Democrat and Republican, Northern and Southern, Male and Female, Left and Right, Up and Down, Short and Tall – any division you can think of, really. What it amounts to is this is a cracked and broken nation in which brother and sister citizens have been turned against brother and sister citizens. And as Abraham Lincoln so wisely said, “A nation divided against itself cannot stand.”
And in our hearts and souls – we know that. And we feel that fear in our souls, most of all. We are suffering a soul sickness – perhaps soul shock or soul numbness. Or maybe too many people no longer trust that anything changes when they engage the power of their soul. I am not speaking about religion. I no longer deal with religions. The soul is a religion-free force. It has never had a religion. It dwells in a cosmic power zone.
