I rant, I rave, I LOVE: A Hodge-podge of Thoughts Related to Japan’s HorrificTragedies


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. Continue reading
