9/11: Day of Empowerment

Twelve years. It's been twelve years since the horrible tragedy that was 9/11. Too much destruction. Too many lives lost. Too much worldwide grief. The effect on the collective consciousness was decisive enough that data from satellites stationed over the earth's magnetic poles registered huge shifts in their readings on that day. (Read more About the Global Coherence Monitoring System and 9/11.) Twelve years later we have not finished the reconstruction of the twin towers, nor have we overcome the helplessness in our own hearts.

Declaring war has not helped us take back our power. All it has done is cost precious lives and resources. Killing the supposed mastermind of this plot, Osama bin Laden, has not overcome the ideology behind the destruction. We feel the chains of this every day and live in fear of even more destruction.

This needs to stop. We were not born into this world to be slaves to weakness and powerlessness. We were born in this era to take responsibility for all those things that happen in our world, both good and bad, and learn from those things. We have waited far to long for those in power to change our world for the better, and quite honestly, it is not going to happen. Creation is not the responsibility of a few but the responsibility of us all!

Do not grieve for those who lost their lives on 9/11! We absolutely miss them, yet all grief does is keep us slaves to helplessness. I don't believe those who died would want their deaths to take away our power. Rather, their sacrifice will be in vain if we do not recognize the lessons they died to teach us.

Let us make this resolution. As we remember all those who lost their lives on 9/11, let us never forget that we have the power to learn! We have the power to make better choices! We have the power to create the sort of world we would like to live in, for ourselves and our children! Allow the light to enter in this day so the world may be a better place for everyone!
