Lately it’s seemed like we’ve been dealt with one tragedy after another. The most recent has been the truck attack in Nice, France where a deranged person killed at least 80 people by plowing over them as they celebrated the French holiday of Bastille Day. While politicians are talking about how they will fight back, the truth of the matter is fighting will only lead to more fighting.
You can point to previous wars and say that countries won them by fighting, but those defeats never led to lasting peace. Fighting can only produce more conflict. We reap what we sow. If we want to reap peace, we must sow peace even if others are sowing hatred and violence.
If you want to do something to help stop the violence in France and in the rest of the world, instead of plotting retaliation, send love and peace to those who advocate such attacks. Burn some healing incense. Visualize people who are happy and getting their emotional needs met. It is their fear and insecurity that leads them to plot such devastating acts in the first place.
The world responds to our energy. When the positive energy overcomes the negative energy, we will move toward peace. Right now we are at a crossroads. The amount of positive energy is very similar to the amount of negative energy in the world. The Universe watches to see which will prevail. Which side will you bet your energy on?
