Stop Taking Part in the Continuity of Conflict

posted by Guy Finley

What’s vital to remember about the tragedy of September 11th is that the only thing that can keep it from happening again is for people not to respond in the same way as they always have when hatred raises its ugly head. Call the attack what you will, it all boils down to an act of rage and frustration perpetrated by individuals without conscience.

The important issue for those of us who wish to bring Peace into our world is the fact that any negative energy met with negative energy only causes these same dark forces to grow. One thing should be clear, and let it be for those of us who want Peace on earth: The cycle of violence and distrust cannot come to an end through more violence and distrust. The cycle must be broken. How? By the deliberate act (on each of our parts) of choosing to consciously sacrifice the self that feeds upon the fury and fear that such evil events always create. 
How is this sacrifice made? We don’t take part in the continuity of the conflict. We bear the ripples of the pain passing into us and don’t pass them along in either thoughts or actions. We let the hatred that is raised in us by such acts of hatred die in us, with us, by bringing its destructive force into the light of the Love we know and that we want to be. We remember those lost in this senseless act and hold them in our prayers and thoughts that are positive in nature, remembering that being vengeful for their sake does nothing but add yet more aching to our atmosphere. Healing is what is needed, not more hurting. Each of us can make this choice, if we are willing to allow God to do His work without our guidance.
And what about those “evil-doers”? What about justice for them? Rest assured, justice is already enacted, even if we don’t see its immediate effect. This universe is always balancing itself, and no hatred may exist that isn’t already being attended to by the Love, the Light, that will use it for God’s own purposes.
Lastly, what happens from here on out is yet to be known, but we may know one thing with certainty: We are the world we live in. And for every measure of Light we agree to be — embrace, act out, etc. — there is one less measure of darkness that can impress itself into our collective Soul.

See Your Way Clear of Self-Defeating Thoughts and Feelings
I'm sure that we can all agree that no intelligent, conscious man or woman would ever intentionally hurt him or herself. No one would choose to ache. Yet the fact remains that all of us do hurt ourselves every day with bursts of anger or fits of depression or anxiety. There can be no doubt, beginnin

Find New Happiness in Self-Wholeness
Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.
