A Plea for Sanity

So much killing, so much hatred and violence happening in the world at this moment. One would think the world and everyone in it has gone completely crazy. Where is all this anger coming from?

Those who don't know better because they are still "asleep" think the answer lies in waging war against each other in some futile attempt to purge the earth of those we judge as "evil"—get "them" before they get "us."

Those of us who are awakened, however, know that the more we feed into the fear and the violence with our thoughts and our emotions and our actions, the more it grows. Focusing on the hatred and violence, begets more hatred and violence. Focusing on love, forgiveness, and understanding, begets more love, forgiveness, and understanding. And yet, even we find ourselves experiencing pangs of hopelessness given the severity of the situations occurring around the world, wondering if thoughts of peace and love are enough.

Today, as I was imagining and calling for an end to the violence, I received a message from Gerald O'Donnell, a well-known light worker, in which he urges all of us to awaken now and realize our inherent oneness. Please read it here: http://probablefuture.com/SilentScream.htm

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." - Mother Teresa
