It has been
three weeks now since the events of September 11 and we are all getting
over the shock and the realisation of the reality. New York and America
is putting on a brave positive face and dealing with the realities facing
them. But it is appropriate to now reflect, question and ask why?
When I was little
I asked Why?
I must have drove
them all nuts asking "why"
And slowly I realised
there was always another "why".
Today the answer
to "why" is met with "look at yourself, the answer is within"
or "look into the
mirror and see what the reflection teaches"
And so I ask "why".
Why did they do
Why do they hate
It's not that I'm
necessarily wanting a definitive answer
I'm just opening
a dialog to enquire into their motives in view of the future.
Now that the initial
shock is over I think America is wanting to deal with this very carefully
and wisely in which case a dialog to talk about "why" is due.
Why do they hate
What did we do to
deserve such a reflection?
Whenever that truck,
(you know the one in Terminator) smacks me right in the face and I'm ready
to blame the truck for my misfortune... there's always someone with the
bright idea that I need to learn a lesson from this -- learn that I've
attracted the truck -- I needed to have the truck in my face, flatten me
crush me, destroy me.. all for a good learning lesson -- a life lesson
-- 'cause I deserved it! I deserved a wake up call -- it is a message from
the universe -- something I should be grateful of to advance my soul along
the pecking order of life.
leads the way expounding the virtues of looking at oneself and accepting
the responsibility that it is meant to be -- a lesson that I must learn
to avoid the re-occurrence of the same. Then there's Gods' mysterious ways...
it's meant to be!
Is anyone looking?
Is anyone asking
Is anyone taking
the responsibility for this spiritually?
Or is it all swept
into the too hard basket and it's all just lip service designed to make
It's okay to believe
when it suits you but when the reality smacks you right where it hurts
you forget and blame.
Now that time
has passed we have a chance to reflect.
And so will we repeat
the same forever until we accept responsibility that we have collectively
caused and created the hate by our actions... I ask WHY? And have we done
anything to deserve this - do we have anything to learn from this?
Surely I don't
need to re-state all those teachings and awaken the spirit within.
Where are the teachers
of spiritual awareness?
