Those white hot angelic ah ha moments

posted by Susan Gregg

Have you had one of those ah-ha moments lately? I did watching a talking head on MSNBC the other day. I never watch, let me correct that I seldom watch commentaries from talking heads on TV but this one caught my ear. I had just had one of those white hot angelic moments, after feeling really stressed I listened to my little voice that said meditate and I did for almost an hour. I felt great, full of love, relaxed and connected.

I had been hearing all the controversy over the mosque at Ground Zero and to be honest hadn’t really thought much about it. I noticed it and moved on. I must admit I have a judgment about judgment and as much as possible I ask myself, “How can I see this through the eyes of the angels?” I hadn’t with this issue but then I did.


What do you suppose angels would say about all the judgment and hoopla over a place of worship? How does prejudice and hatred honor the memory of anyone’s son? How is it a victory lap for Muslims and a poke in the eye for the US? I just don’t get it nor do I want to. My mission in life has been to see life through the eyes of love and release my judgmental, limited version of life.

When 9/11 happened I wrote a letter to the editor, my first I might add. I suggested that we pray for the terrorists who were so emotionally wounded that they thought killing people was the answer. Any time judgment and fear, hatred and violence are the answer people are profoundly disconnected from their spirit. When we open our hearts and allow love and compassion to guide our choices life is often filled with magic and miracles.

When I am in the Middle East I love the sound of the call to prayers as it echos through the streets. I love listening to people singing hymns or chanting or laughing and praying in any form. My white hot angelic moment was to pray and meditate more, to love more and judge less and to see the perfection in all things, even people’s crazy need to judge and prove their version of reality is right.

With love and aloha,
Susan

    yes. I’m happiest in the small pleasures of the day, as you seem to reflect upon. Peace and harmony are of course the preferred environment to live in and dear reader, that is possible for each of us. Yet as I do read the paperls and the internet has made news from all over the world possible, I suggest you do some investigating of your on and not rely on the biased 30 second news stories. The mosque at the 911 site is what the leaders in the Islamic wars have done for centuries. They build their temples on ground that has been won over through war. Ths temple in qustion would be a living testament of their victory over the infedel. Why would our country allow the artifact of dominance over the USA to be built at a place where we lost almost 3000 people? Have you heard the saying, you can’t control what happens in life, just your reaction to it? My reaction is to reject an icon of war and dominance to be built at a grave site in the midddle of the thecity of New York. I appreciate your point of view, but you are naive to think the temple should be built.

    I agree with the author of the article. We have now followed this litany of the talking heads for several weeks into complete chaos all over the United States. As St. Paul said, “We war not against flesh and blood but against power and principalities.” What next, KrystalNacht (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht) where we burn people’s stores and books? We have to be the message of love and peace – who else is there?

    Thank you for a wise and compassionate view, Susan. Building a muslim community center with a prayer room will bring people together in a healthy way – after listening to those who have the vision for the center, I think it will be a place of peace, wisdom, acceptance, community and growth. This poor old world surely needs more of this. and less fear and judgment.
    Thank you for your voice.

    As the saying goes if we don’t learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. Thanks sad student and LeLe Lisana.
    Carla I am not at all naive about the mosque, at times I feel naive when I believe people will finally realize that judgment of any kind leads away from our spiritual connection.
    Ironically the mosque isn’t even visible from Ground Zero, it is several blocks away and it is going to be a culinary institute, community center and a place of prayer.
    The only way we can ever hope to create a world that is more peaceful is to stop our internal judgments. As Gandhi said ‘We must be the change we wish to see.’
    With love and aloha,
    Susan

    What I am hearing is two different points of view and it reminds me of a scripture “And while men slept, the enemy came” and I found the link I added on line which explains both sides. Some have “fear” that you speak so much of Susan. Fear that the enemy is infiltrating into the camp via the mosque. The enemy crept in during 9-11. . .I see this war back and forth as distracting us so the real enemy can creep in. The old adage “divide and conquer” I had to stop watching the news because our country is so divided and I have never seen so much of it in politics, in religion, in choices of partners, values and all we are doing is being distracted from the real dangers. I am sick to death of it. The Indians lost this beautiful land because they were divided. They out numbered those trying to steal the land but they had a little tribe here and a little tribe over there and did not band together so they lost and we are all the loosers for all this disagreement and fighting and our enemy is laughing knowing they are causing us to be weak by this and we will soon be taken over but not by a simple mosque but by our undivided bickering and being lulled to sleep by the real enemy. Our own selves.

    What people don’t seem to get is the ‘enemy’ is judgment – plain an simple judgment. Belief that there is an enemy. Belief there is a right religion and a wrong religion. What caused 9/11 in the first place, certainly not love.
    With love and aloha,

What do angels know that we don't know?
The main thing angels know that we tend to forget is that this is a safe universe and that we are loved, unconditionally. They know that only the love is real and that everything else is an illusion or delusion created by our filter system: our beliefs, agreements and assumptions. Love, happin

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State
