It’s hard to imagine how violent events can happen like the one in Colorado this past week, especially from the perspective of oneness – that we all came from a single source. My guess is that this event and other similar acts of violence stem from a distorted sense of separation from others. It’s like an autoimmune disorder when one’s own body doesn’t recognize itself – it attacks itself.  We are all intricately connected, just like the cells within our bodies to form one body that we identify with. And, just like the cells in our body to make up the whole, we are different and very unique expressions.

With that same perspective in mind, a piece of our collective consciousness, attacked itself.  As One, we attacked Ourself.  Does that put some of the responsibility on us as a whole, therefore indirectly on you and me?  I’m not sure, but it’s interesting to consider…

If you look at your life this past week, can you draw together events, thoughts, ideas, emotions that almost predicted a violent event to occur? The symptoms and signs that something is off.  Did anyone else see related things like I did?

My curiosity is piqued, and I’d love to know if we can prevent events like this by recognizing through our collective consciousness that something is off.  I’m almost certain we can and that we actually do this all the time but ignore it.  Once there’s a recognition of high levels that something is off, an intentional effort at prevention would look like group meditation/prayer/silence/attention to a calming, deeper breath on a global scale as well as expressing a loving kindness and acceptance for oneself and others.  We could lift everyone to a higher state in the moment, like an Emergen-C Vitamin C boost or a power nap might do for an oncoming cold, maybe knocking down potential moments of crime in our collective consciousness. And for those that don’t respond, we could see that they probably feel a deep sense of separation and need to be compassionately reached out to with a strong intention of helping them recognize their inclusion, not as in joining a specific group or conforming, but that they are loved without any conditions.

I’d love to hear your thoughts…
