burns—another wound in humanity’s chest. If our immediate reaction is shock, horror and grief, then perhaps we become angry.

This serves a purpose, and it is healthy to be angry when attacked. If we can release our pain, stand with the victims in peace, and contemplate suffering and how we can shift the collective energy, it will advance the cause of peace far more than reacting with more hatred. 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 more antipathy. 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. As Marianne Williamson said—“as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

Manchester mourns. We cannot let our comrades die in vain. Standing together for the light—to stand for the powers of goodness, the mastery of kindness, love, forgiveness and grace—these are the hallmarks of human development and evolution. Spiritual integrity, wholeness and kindness, and following the pathway to goodness is the only way forward for humanity. 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 from 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?

Only awareness and coming back to fundamental spiritual values of unity, forgiveness, understanding and kindness will bring the world back to a positive light. May we all feel alive with the unity of the Divine spark within glowing and throbbing within the heart of humanity. The love of our Creator and all of creation is truly limitless.

We are one heart together as love—as it is written in the bible:

“I say, ‘You are gods;

you are all children of the Most High.’”

~ Psalms: 82:6, Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Our role on the planet is to raise the frequency of peace, love and compassion from within. As Mohandas Gandhi taught, “Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.”

We live in a world of facades of cascading vibrational illusions that stand for reality. Our conditioning comes from old belief systems based on the ego-self that taught separation, materialism and greed, a competition-mindset—always focused on the self instead of on co-operation and co-creation. Our history is filled with control and manipulation by dominating forces seeking to build empires. When we act out of ego, we act out of limitation, we easily fall into the trap of fear, hatred and blame.

Evil is only relative, reflecting the apparent limitation of unconditional love. We have all inherited this evil. The cause is a limitation placed on that which is unlimited. The true cause of this is doubt. Judgements of limitation and extreme 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.

Vivekanada spoke of the illusory separation and ultimate union with the godhead in a speech on November 18, 1896: “We are like silkworms; we make the thread out of our own substance and spin the cocoon and in course of time are imprisoned inside. But this is not forever, for in the cocoon we shall develop spiritual realisation and like the butterfly come out free.”

We live in a world of constant change. Impermanence is our teacher—the only reality is flux. All is within the mind to be healed and changed. The Ascended Masters of our past did not want religions—they wanted enlightenment. They did not want war—they wanted peace. Peace must always begin within before being externally manifested.

We each have our own path. How we respond is not the same. There isn’t a right way or a wrong way.

Sri Chinmoy wrote so evocatively—

“Life is given to each human being
For a very special purpose.
This secret each human being
Must discover for himself.”

Let’s stand together for Manchester—in memory of all those souls who lost their lives prematurely—for the sacredness of each human life, for love and for peace.  _______________________________________________________
