Earlier this evening, I was made aware of a hostage situation that was taking place in Sydney, Australia from a Facebook friend. She was in a state of grave concern as this was unfolding; heightened by the fact her daughter was working alone in a shoppe not too far from where the terrorists were holding hostages.
After investigating the crisis a bit further, I found an article explaining the reasoning (if you can call it that) behind this act of terrorism. This is the thought form, it seems, which triggered this violent act:
“Hostages have been filmed holding up a black and white flag in the window of the busy Martin Place café, some of them wearing Lindt Cafe aprons. [ … ] The flag on display is understood to say in Arabic: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of God.”
My simple-mind could not begin to grasp the concept used as the reasoning behind this ignorant act of terror. In my mind, God and Allah are one in the same: An omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient energy force field beyond the realms of basic understanding. This divine energy field is what created and is still creating the ever expanding cosmos. We can choose to call it whatever name resonates best with ones culture and language, but this powerful, loving force does not need a name or title. Actually, giving it a name has historically caused massive division and created low vibrating energy on this little, blue planet. This could all be so easily corrected…
Ralph Waldo Emerson, sums this up beautifully with these wise words:
“Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.”
As the song goes: “Let There Be Peace On Earth, And Let It Begin With Me”
During this holiday season, may all hearts be filled with peace and love, creating unification of thoughts assisting in the elevation of consciousness and vibration of our shared planet. And may we feel only Peace and Love towards one another.
Much Peace and Love to you ~ Angela xoxox
