Yet unseen or unrealised at the time, an enormous positive energy arose from within the dust of despair that claimed so many lives with 9/11!
When the greater population of the world on that fateful day watched the unfolding horror, the state of shock triggered an awareness that transcended into the global human consciousness.
Thus, as the trauma unfolded, people across the World reacted with concern, love, compassion, empathy and prayers. It sent these energies into the hearts of those that recognised their fate. They understood their task and calmness set their souls at ease.
That day, I said to my daughter; “today the world at large is introduced to Compassion for their fellow being”. And it was so!
As millions of people across the world watched in horror how this deed of terror destroyed the lives of so many innocent beings, it became clear to me that this was one of those life changing events, not only for individuals, the people of America, but this one sent it’s shock waves all around the Globe! This was a peace call for humanity!
Great sorrow and anguish invariably awakens yet another attribute within the human psyche, and as was the case in New York on the 11 September 2001, the gift of compassion and the desire for world peace filled the human hearts that were sitting in front of television screens.
People unified as they became immersed with the unfolding trauma. Most of us shared the anguish as the minutes ticked by, counting the steps that had to be descended, hoping and praying that all will escape, and our thoughts raised in love and gently ever so gently raised into the ether’s sending love to those in despair in their hour of need.
Through a horrendous deed a positive gift was received to mend not only a country, but also the world at large. We should only think a little further than the inflicted pain, to find every negative has positive awaiting.We became so blunt to terror that we accepted it as a norm. But 9/11 was different, as civilians were involved we all became victims of that terror. This was not a war of men, it slain ordinary people.
But herein lies the lesson of the hatred! As a result of 9/11, humanity’s awareness of peace was raised, as in the aftermath of wrath, the threat of war against Iraq brought anti-war protests across the world.
When last did the people of the world unite within a positive energy against War? In my living memory, this was the first occasion. I could feel love emerging from my heart as I prayed that love will flow into the hearts of those who are still trapped until their very last moment, and beyond into the Kingdom of our Divine.
Just as Humanity celebrated a temporary peace after world war two, I truly believe that 9/11 was the sacrifice of beloved people who took on the duty to teach humanity compassion beyond borders and prayers beyond Church pulpits!
It raised our senses to the plight of our fellow beings and hopefully delivered mankind from future world wars. Is it not through harsh and painful lessons that we learn the greater purpose for us all?
By the same measure of the tragedy, peace raised for humanity from the dust of despair!
Peace be with you all.
