Can The World Absorb More Sorrow?
By James Donahue
As we watch the ongoing disaster story in Northern Japan unfold on our daily and nightly televisions
and hear the reports of international relief efforts for the hundreds of thousands of Japanese left without homes, food, clothing
and bare essentials plus the frantic but losing effort to stem the runaway nuclear reactors at the stricken Fukushima power
station, we get the sense that we have all been here before.
Indeed, we have.
It was less than one year ago that we sat on the edge of our seats as “professionals”
from around the world worked frantically to stop a runaway oil well following the explosion and fire at the Deepwater Horizon
oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico.
It was January, 2010, that a catastrophic magnitude seven earthquake leveled the City of Port-au-Prince,
Haiti, killing an estimated 316,000 and leaving an estimated 1.8 million homeless. The media was all over that disaster until
the next big thing happened.
The British Petroleum oil well explosion became that next big thing on April 20. Then there was
the mining accident in Copiapo, Chile that left 33 miners buried alive 2,300 feet underground for 69 days before they were
This year, even before the Japanese earthquake/tsunami/nuclear catastrophe caught world attention, we were fixed
on events in the Middle East where citizen uprisings have been toppling old and established dictatorships. In Libya, Muammar
Gaddafi is engaged in a war for his very survival as rebels clash with what many believe are hired mercenaries.
The scope of these horrific events has been so constant in recent months that it is hard to remember
a time when all we had to worry about was the shenanigans going on in Washington. And while the eyes of the world, and the
nation, are fixed on Japan and the Middle East, it has been politics as usual in the nation’s capital, plus in many
state capitals in recent weeks.
A new influx of Republican Governors and elected representatives has been busy looting what few
dollars are left in the public coffers and planning some dramatic changes in the way Americans will live. Moves to break public
unions have brought massive public demonstrations to the streets of Madison, Wisconsin; Lansing, Michigan; Columbus, Ohio
and other state capitals. Public protests are going on this week in all 50 states.
What is going on? Is there a bigger picture in all of this?
David Wilcock, in his YouTube four-part lecture series “2012 Event Horizon,”
explains why he believes we are in the midst of super-charged human evolution and that all of the
events going on around us are part of an Earth change that cannot be stopped. It has been dubbed as the ascension.
In one part of the lecture, Wilcock speaks of our need to learn to love ourselves and to love those
about us before we can be included into this new and growing psychic community of awakening world citizens. He gives an interesting
description of looking at the beast within ourselves and learning to love it, in spite of its failures. Then he said governments
are doing the same thing. They are presenting the worst of themselves, as representatives of the people within each nation.
Instead of hating and fighting these “beasts” of power, Wilcox suggests that we also need to learn to love them,
just as we must love the beast within ourselves before we can expect to see changes.
It is love that is the solution, not warfare, not fear, not any other human emotion.
When humanity joins in love and harmony, the suggestion here is that the Mother Earth will begin
to heal. We might just see an end to the terrible storms, the fearsome earthquakes, the draughts, floods, extreme heat and
other unnatural disasters that have begun to plague the world. We might also see people beginning to reach out with love and
respect for one another. All we need to do is stop the insanity, reach out to our Higher Selves, turn on our inner light and
find the love.
