My heart is heavy and my prayers are ceaseless. Where any of us suffer, we all suffer. We are one world here and our connection is clear. The tsunami that hit Japan reached the U.S. within hours. Though the damage here was less than minimal in comparison, lives were lost and to those families, it was just as devastating.
Now, as Japan faces even more problems and potential nuclear power plant meltdowns, neighboring countries fear the worse for Japan and themselves. American scientists say we have nothing to worry about in the U.S. Yet, who really knows, and why should they be believed? Since when are governments transparent? Panic has become widespread in northern California, particularly.
At the end of this blog, I have listed a number of websites that provide unbiased information about the state of affairs from the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Let us be conscious in how we use and direct our thoughts. Panic is never the answer and can cause more trouble than what the fearful imagined.
These are a few of the posts I posted on my Facebook page. There were many beautiful, powerful comments posted by others in response. I am thankful to live in this country, to know such beauty and to be supported by such love! I know that many in Japan were living a similar life and it hurts tremendously to know so many perished in a swoop of a shake and a wave. Whew…
Please take moments of Silence throughout your day. Let us focus on Japan, Haiti, war torn areas throughout our planet, on anyone suffering any place in the world. Focus on an upliftment of consciousness. We are the world, we are one, we are not our things. We are not our suffering. Attune to gratitude.
When I heard all the iodine sources had dried up, it popped in my head: Hey, folks have bought it up for resale! Damn Americans! No heart…Their god is money and money is their god! Geez…So you know what that means? 2011: chickens coming home to roost. Watch out gougers! If you ain’t about Love, you ain’t about nuthin’!
The idea of panicking means folks aren’t spiritually secure. I would say that’s the first thing to get: an enhanced relationship with the DIVINE SELF. I’m taking a bit of a “break” from the news and all. I’ve personal reasons and it’s hard to watch others suffer so. Knowing my focus is good enough for me.
Calm, cool collectedness will be more aid than iodine. When we really tune in, we can connect to the Divine directives we receive. This is the time when we get to truly uplift our faith. Folks are panicking. Nothing good comes from panic. Breathe, be still and listen. Proceed with wisdom.
Prayers for our Japanese neighbors/family, especially for those who are need rescue, and for all those seeking assistance. This is why the call to Love is so crucial. Life changes can be swift. We truly never know. Rising to love releases us from our pettiness and allows for the breath of harmony to pervade in our earthly atmosphere. Can that diminish radiation?
Our Japanese family needs so much of our loving thoughts, prayers, & love! They also need financial support for food & shelter. Here’s the latest. Pray ceaselessly. We can see we are all connected by how quickly that tsunami hit the U.S. It’s hard to imagine how the survivors feel, but we must send them our strength. The radiation leaked won’t stay in Japan. Like the tsunami, it will travel.
Your respectful comments are welcome and appreciated here whether or not they are in agreement with my views. Please also feel free to leave helpful, healthful information around dealing with crisis. There are plans that we should all be making. Your family should have an exit plan for any type of emergency or disaster. A friend of mine put together a list of what to do’s. I will post them in a quick post soon.
Here are a list of websites that paint a clearer, unbiased scientific look at what is going on in Japan and its world impact. I am not associated with the Union. Sorry, I’m just not that intelligent. (^_~)

“You can find regular updates on our blog “All Things Nuclear” (http://action.ucsusa.org/site/R?i=el452fb60pwf_iTcv2GWZw.. ) and learn about why events have unfolded in the way they have, where the situation may be headed, and what it may mean for the people around the facilities and the environment.”

We live in a beautiful country, filled as it may be with much confusion. May we all be peaceful in our awakenings, but may we PLEASE wake up! This world, our world is suffering so much because we are not respecting it. Times are changing fast. We are in the midst of a paradigm shift on every level. Too many people have no idea of how to stand strong, love humanity and release hatred. Violence is so commonplace, we have children committing murders. We must rise and take our hatred and sorrow and transform it into Love. Immaculate Love is our only answer. It is to love without condition, purely Love for the sake of Love. Our planet may live on, but we will cease to live without it.
