Reply to "Dealing with "Remembrance" Overload"

well said Barbara...

 

I went to Israel in the late 60"s and had dated someone while I was there... when i got back to the states and the six day independence war was on the news, the guy I dated was splashed on the television screen dead, from that moment on I never turned on the news on the radio or tv... I realized there was never anything uplifting or inspirational... always information to wear us all down ... sensationalized to boot. When I would go away and leave my animals at home, I no longer left the television on or radio.. I left music playing on my tape cassettes or cd's endlessly rather than have them absorb the vibrations as well...

 

as for 9/11 - it was when NOFEC was going... I had come back from a labor day weekend vacation a day early on the 9th... my mother who was about 85 at the time and I were scheduled to go to the cemetery for my dad on the 11th but because I came home a day earlier I phoned her and suggested we go on the 10th instead..I picked up the rental car and my mom and as we were driving down the west side highway here in nyc, I asked her what time it was... we were passing the world trade center buildings and it was 8:45am...if we had gone on the  11th as scheduled, we would have been smack in the middle of it all.... we both knew and understood that we were guided... my mom chose in that moment to live more fully even though she was already ill and suffering...

 

My mother saw the towers go down from her terrace on the 21st floor and I saw them go down from my apt window... I used to see the top third of the twin towers... I broke my rules and got caught up with watching it on television... i suffered greatly from it for months working with meditation etc..

 

I have been back from Mexico for three weeks as the sublet for my apt was over and have been working to get it back to normal. I have not turned the news or television on other than to watch movies on channels that don't talk about 9/11. I heard there was a threat but personally from my gut, I think it is the government working on putting fear on everyone again... Yesterday I walked 20 blocks through a street fair.. today, I am staying in, meditating sending love and healing prayers out into the universe... this is all I can do from my inner being.. my compassion is there but all the hype is not something I want to keep in me any longer...

 

I don't want to get political and I won't except to say that governments all over the world are about greed and control... and those in power do not have a spiritual awareness or consciousness about themselves... they believe we only go around once so the control, power and greed is what is necessary but all of it does not make them peaceful... they get drunk.. they numb themselves and want more and more...

 

But in general, all the peoples of the world want peace... and we are the ones that fall victims to the govts and their control...  there! I've said it....

 

If the governments put 10% of their time and money allocations to family caregivers around the world, the world would be a happier place.
