The earthquake and Tsunami in Asia
I feel compelled to write something down about what is happening over in Asia right now. It's like I can feel in my bones that more than 100,000 people have died all at once and the people who are left living over there are walking around in complete confusion and degradation and inconsolable grief. What has happened over there is a disaster of biblical proportions that no one has seen since the dark ages and the black plague - and this is just the beginning days of it.
They're saying it's going to cost billions of dollars to rebuild what was there before - but who's going to rebuild it? Half the population is dead. The charts and graphs that people are drawing up for the news shows right now are exactly the same types that you see on Nova and the Nature of Things as worst case scenarios of what happened at the end of the ice age - or when the Dead Sea was formed. This is a once in a millenia catastrophe that we have just witnessed on December 26th, 2004.
Every person on this planet will - and should - be affected by it. The collective consciousness should be feeling the sorrow of all the bloated bodies that haven't decomposed yet and are still waiting to be properly disposed of. It is so sad that the catastrophe is so huge and the people are so poor over there that the bodies are receiving no dignity whatsoever.
During the dismantling of the Trade Centre Towers whenever a body, or a piece of a body was found - the whole demolition process was shut down so that they could go in and remove the effects properly and with dignity.
So I think it behooves us as sentient beings all around the world to practice whatever faith we follow and direct it towards the 10's of 1,000's of nameless and faceless sentient beings who's souls have left their bodies in the last few days in a very untimely and painful fashion - with no loved ones around them, and no one to grieve over their grave site or say prayers over their bodies.
That too is a tragedy of biblical proportions I think. I'm just completely blown away by the whole thing from beginning to end. The world is never going to be the same again.
