Some more inspiration from Ghandi.
In the last couple of years the news has given us plenty of ‘food for thought’. From the unexpected outcomes of a Trump win in the USA, and Brexit in the UK. From the tragedies of those who were injured or lost loved ones in the ‘terror’ attacks, and the Grenfell Towers fire. There has been no shortage of things to comment on in the media.
I was in London on the weekend of the London Bridge Terror attack. I woke on Sunday morning to a request from a friend on Facebook to acknowledge I was safe following the attack. I switched on the TV to get the details of what had happened.
BBC news reported in detail what had played out on London Bridge the previous evening. Then something interesting happened. As soon as Naga Munchetty, the BBC correspondent, started to talk about the ‘feeling’ of those affected, I switched over to watch 'Frasier'. Within less than 3 minutes my mood went from a sombre, concerned one, to one of uproarious laughter, (I love 'Frasier' and it was a particularly funny episode about Valentine’s Day).
Heartless of me?
A lot has changed in the last 4 years in the way I see the world and how I wish to interact with it. The way the media perpetuates telling news stories beyond the facts into second guessing or projecting the detail of peoples’ thoughts and feelings on any news subject is extremely unhelpful.
I am in no way diminishing the seriousness or tragedy of the loss of life in the terror attack, but my stepping into thinking that “I must feel sad and/or angry” at what is going on the world does nothing to help the consciousness of the world, or to redeem it from any current troubles.
We are all born with innate mental health. Just look at a toddler. They move rapidly from one mood to the next. One minute they can be upset and crying, and the next laughing and playing, having moved on from being upset. Young children are mentally healthy and don’t ‘hang on’ to feelings and moods.
Let me put it another way…
I am in no way excusing the act of the terrorists on that June weekend, but one thing is very clear to me. For them to do what that did, they must have been living in a very different reality, that made it okay for them to attack, injure and even kill a random selection of strangers.
If we in return believe that our feelings are coming from what unfolds in the world, be that what politicians say or do, or tragic attacks carried out by those living in a different reality, (which we all do) that makes it okay to take another persons life, then we are equally caught up in an illusion too.
The minute we believe we are a victim of the world ‘out there’ and are at the mercy of events then the level of consciousness we are living at is at the detriment of mankind too. Understanding how we create our own experience is the most helpful thing we can do.
If you want to be the change you want to see in the world, then I am offering a uniqe opportunity for you to step into your truest, highest self...
