“With almost no time to decide, they [your loved ones] gave the entire country an incalculable gift. They saved the capitol from attack. They saved God knows how many lives. They saved the terrorists from claiming the symbolic victory of smashing the center of American government. And they did it as citizens. They allowed us to survive as a country that could fight terror and still maintain liberty and still welcome people from all over the world from every religion and race and culture as long as they shared our values, because ordinary people given no time at all to decide did the right thing.” ~ William J. Clinton
The energy this week reminds you that you live in an increasingly global community. Your modern technology has made it possible for you to communicate instantly among yourselves, no matter where in the world you are. Whether you like it or not, you are all connected to one another. As Chief Seattle said, “Man did not weave the web of life. He is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” You are more closely connected in “the web of life” than ever before in human history. And therefore, now – more than ever before – what even a single individual among you does affects every other human on the planet. The good of one is the good of all. The willingness to allow the differences while compassionately working toward the common good is the goal here. Fighting against the differences will only ensure more divisiveness. Accepting the differences while sincerely wanting the highest good for all is the only way you will ever ensure a truly connected world. A world where all are equal, all are accepted. A world where there truly is a sense of community.
Affirmation: I am aware that the good of one is the good of all.
You are your own blessing and misfortune. Your choice.
