This week many of us will see images over the television screen that will relive the horror that happened on 9/11. It is hardly believable that two years have passed, yet for some, including myself, the passing time has felt like ten years. So much information, renewal, tears, mourning….and still, we have to go on.
We have learned much about ourselves…both personally and as a society. The problems of the world are no longer half a planet away…in an instant they can be in our own backyard. The love and the joy that we once took for granted has changed. If Time could be traded on the stockmarket, you would see that its value has increased significantly. Many of us have our opinions of how we got here…and where we are going. One thing’s for sure….we’ve changed.
We are all wounded in one way or another…each day we try to find ways to heal those wounds. The world too has to deal with its wounds, and try to find its healing. Mankind has tried time and again to correct the mistakes, yet strangely, where one problem is solved, another one is created. Could it be that Man’s failure for lasting Peace is because he has come up with the wrong answers? Could the answers be with a Higher Power?
We pride ourselves as a civilization that follows the Law of God….yet around the world there are so many different interpretations of that Law of God. So let’s make it easy…suppose tomorrow a Special Assembly was scheduled at the United Nations, and the guest speakers would be a Representative of the foundations of the world’s religions. To represent Judaism, you could have Abraham or Moses….to represent Christianity, Jesus Christ. To represent Muslims, Allah, to represent Buddhism, Buddah…….etc.,etc. So how could these Prophets appear? Their words and teachings would tell us all how we should handle our current problems. The Prophets of Peace would gives us the answers. The question is…can the ego of man accept the conclusion that he is not God?
As you can see, I, like you, have done much pondering. Yes, there will always be those who have nothing better to do than to wreak havoc…the point is to learn as much as we can about ourselves and why we are here. 9/11 has taught us that even in one of the most prosperous countries of the world, in a New York minute, everything can change.
