While spending some time in a friend’s office the other day I noticed that he shared my love for the author David Hawkins. At least that was my assumption as he had all three of the book titles from this author that also resided on my personal book shelf. I couldn’t help but reach for Power vs. Force.
On page 279 of this great book the author discusses our diminished capacity for discernment. Particularly in the arena of moral decisions. The thread of the subject was discussing how as a whole our society is confused and unable to discern what is “right”.
My last post alluded to the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado about ten days ago. This young gentleman obviously completely “lost it”. What I feel he lost was the ability to discern and appreciate the well-being of himself, especially in context to the well-being of those in his community.
A reporter on NPR this morning asked this question…”Do you think there is something wrong with us?”. The context of the question (whether it was intended to be rhetorical or not) was the well-being and sanity of our society, even the human race in general. I remember Eckart Tolle answering a similar question in the subject matter of his book, The Power of Now. His answer posed a question in response…”Do we not belong to the human race that has been responsible for the violent deaths of over 100 million people in the twentieth century alone?”. And he commented that most of this death and suffering was inflicted upon others by respectable members of society. His point was that we are all connected, energetically and responsibly, to the ‘tragic’ events that occur in our society. We are not without “guilt”, though I don’t much care for that word, and our thoughts, intentions and consciousness will and does contribute to the expression of violence, locally or globally.
Many blame the tragedies of the world to “evil” or “insanity” distinct from themselves. We fear the accountability that comes with acknowledging that every violent thought and action we personally express is also expressed in the whole of humanity. For me to stop events such as the one in Colorado last week I must contribute to the healing that begins with my very next thought. And the thought after that…and the one after that, etc., etc…. This is not meant to be a condemnation. It is meant to empower and heal in the very best, actually the only, way possible.
So I believe that this is the answer. It begins with me…and you. Let us all do our part in laying aside our portion of fear that interferes with our contribution to the healing “whole”.
Our capacity is complete. One hundred percent! What is diminished is our understanding of how important our contribution is. Whether we are contributing to the darkness by supporting an industry that glorifies death, violence and oppression. Or conversely by contributing to the light and consciousness of allowing, freedom and healing. We do this by lifting our vibration and energy above the level of unconsciousness and violence…to the level of loving and therefore healing.
Our choice…and our result is ours….like Red Green says…”We’re all in this together!”.
IN-JOY your day,
