A Day To Get Up

Days like these show us some things very clearly.

We can see that most people respond with deep empathy and strong emotion when hearing about tragic events. This is the beauty of our humanity. We feel sadness at the thought of what others have gone through. We feel fear at the thought of it happening to us or our loved ones. We feel angry that someone, anyone, thinks it is okay to take someone else's life. We feel a connection with those we don't know. We feel our humanity more sharply on these days than on other, more ordinary days.

We can also see, when we open our eyes, that mainstream media are like emotional puppet-masters, saturating us with one tragic story, while ignoring others, just as tragic. Saturating us with a scripted version of that story that has been provided to all the major western news networks. This is not conspiracy theory, it is fact. Same words, same script. Provided by who and for what reason? These are questions we should all be asking ourselves.

The scripts are saturated with certain key words. A Muslim shooter is somehow always a terrorist, while a white shooter is somehow always just a crazy shooter. Politicians are closing borders while others are shouting 'See, I told you so, we should all close our borders!" Instantly the insinuation is that the Other has brought this bloodshed here to our soil, and so we better keep all the Others out, even though the majority of refugees are all regular people, just like us, escaping the very terror they are being accused of perpetrating.

You may feel that a day of mourning is not the right day to be talking about the murky world that is the mainstream media and global politics, but those invisible people who are hurting and mourning similar losses in other countries, those people whose lives have now been burdened with further discriminatory hardship, might disagree.

Today is a day to mourn. It is a day to pray. It is a day to stand in solidarity with all those around the world that have been hurt or killed by the despicable acts of others. It is also a day to think deeper. To question further. Who is really behind these acts? Is the story we are being told true, or is there something or someone else at work here? Or at the very least stop yourself when you catch yourself riding the wave of a media-generated meme.

Today is a day when you might venture deeper down the rabbit hole. When you ask, and discover, who is funding and training so much of the tragedy we see around the world? Sometimes you can only go so far into the rabbit hole and then you need to surface for a while, to find relief and reprieve. For some, their gift to the world is to give the rabbit hole no energy, while they spread goodness on the surface as much as they can. We all have a part to play, and any part from the heart is much needed now.

Today may have been a day to despair, but tomorrow is a day to get up once again. It is the only way to honour all those who have needlessly lost their lives not only in the past day, but in the past week, month, year and decades, to that which is planned to precision in the rabbitholes of our precious Earth.

With all my heart, I put my vote on the goodness of humanity to prevail. As dark as it is in the rabbitholes, as strong as the agenda is to spread that darkness among our precious humanity, all the darkness in the world cannot extinguish what amounts to the light of 7 billion people, the majority of whom want the same thing: lives of peace, wellbeing and love with their loved ones.

And now desiring those things even more today than yesterday.

And so our collective light grows in the midst of these tragedies.

It is our duty, and responsibility, to keep our light strong, to keep our hearts open, to see what is difficult to see, and to keep going when all seems lost. Remember the saying, it is always darkest before dawn, and our dawn is long overdue.

Will you make a pledge today? In honour of all those across time, whose lives have been taken or affected by the many departments of darkness, in honour of all those children and grandchildren and generations set to inherit this planet long after we are gone, I will keep my light shining bright, I will keep my heart open, I will do what I came here to do.

Beautiful article Dana. I loved your last sentence, that you want to do what you came here to do. It reminds me of a wonderful saying by Mark Twain:

"The 2 most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why". You figured it out! :)

love, hugs and blessings to you and to everyone!

For some of us who still have a part of us in "3 D", we would like to send as many of these "13th century troglodytes" to their "virgins". This will help to increase the % of "Light" vs "Dark" and help hasten the world's transition! I know you don't agree with this, BUT WAIT until they hit us here and SOME of you will "lower your vibration" and think the same thing. They call their religion, the "Religion of Peace". That is correct, it currently means--"If you don't convert to our religion, we will cut you to pieces"! I myself and many other PATRIOTS are keeping our "powder dry" so when they come to cut off our heads , we will be sending MANY of them to Allah before they reach us. ( Oh how 3 D of me! )

Well put - it is easy to spread fear amongst humanity - to divide and conquer or to keep the masses under control - It is time each and every one of us woke up and started asking questions instead of believing what the Media put out and even worse believing it to be true Fact which I even see even here divides and separates. True character comes out in times of stress.

Actually, I'm not sure "true character comes out in times of stress". We often hear that said. Once someone is falling into that fight or flight area of the brain that they are showing their "true colours"? I disagree. The fight or flight reaction in times of stress takes you back to survival mode. Fight or flight is a knee jerk reaction designed to do whatever is necessary to avoid death. Very 3D. Not at all who we are now.

I believe that when you take a human, any human or animal or planet for that matter, give them the ideal conditions in which to thrive, make them feel safe and secure and teach them how to hold themselves in that state of mind, that is when they will show their true colours.

The only time greed or violence enters their mind is from a base emotion of fear. Greed comes from fear of not having enough, violence comes from fear of being overpowered. Remove these types of fears and you end up with a very different way of being.
