We are all under attack from extremism from the Middle East to America, Asia, Russia, Europe and all the world. We are all targets of the dark forces and that actually unites us. Humanity is at war with the darkness and in our plight, we are one. The real enemy is darkness.

In the years to come, it seems inevitable we will face more tribulations. Will we see beyond the illusion or be sucked into a vortex of shadow? Will we react fearfully or respond with grace?

What is darkness? What is it inside that corrupts a human soul? What is it that ignites the flame of tyranny, the evil of wanting to harm others? We all have something to look at, something to think about. Blame is too easy.

We cannot escape our individual responsibility as all of humanity is under attack. When one person suffers, we all suffer.

Judgements of limitation and bias only place shields over people’s eyes and blankets over their spirits. There are many aspects of relative truth and absolute reality. This field of creation consists of worlds within worlds. From our perspective, we can only glimpse the reasons and reasoning behind events.

Peace must always begin within before being externally manifested.

The human community must ask ourselves who we are. Our self-identity is key, how we define ourselves – are we divine souls united under One Creator – or divided and separated predators battling amongst each other for limited resources?

Our true nature is not evil, violent, wicked, or devious. Within all of us is the seed of God, the seed of goodness, light, unconditional love and purity. We each have a saint glowing within, a shining star of grace inside. Our essential nature is not darkness, it is starlight. May we see our light manifest in the world and shine upon all those who suffer.

Our history is filled with control and manipulation by dominating forces seeking to build empires.

We cannot change evil by countering with evil. The Buddha taught: “For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time: hatred ceases by love. This is an unalterable law.” Reacting to terrorism with more terror only fans the flames of hatred. We cannot bring peace by murder. The only way to peace is via peace. The only way to bring about peace is to look within at our nature, to embrace the practice of compassion, loving-kindness and tolerance. Only love will bring us out of darkness. Only our love for ourselves and each other will heal the collective suffering and blindness.

It is time to expand our awareness and set new intentions for our world. Healing our collective trauma takes a willingness from each one of us to heal and forgive ourselves within. The test is one of faith. Have we lost faith in the light – or do we still believe in the light forces of hope and innate goodness?

Love is all that makes sense in a venting world of confusion. Love is all that transmutes suffering into grace.
