aloha SM et al
ahem, were you about to say: *...lets call the whole thing off*
well I dont usually watch the news, but assuming its the usual eye-for-an-eye making the whole world blind
routine, I would say 'so what?' (with compassion, natch)
what other people do is just what other people do.
what YOU do with it is all YOURS.
so my question would be: how does watching news about Gaza raise your vibration or make you feel good?
(which nicely gets us back to the nature of reality, and more importantly, how to create your
reality, and hence ITLAD and back on-topic, *phew, pats fevered brow with paper towel and vows to acquire oversize gingham handkerchief*)
we know from the Hawaiian principle of IKE
aka the Law of Attraction, that you create your own reality, so if you watch lots of news or soaps which are full of conflict then likely you will end up with lots of conflict in your life!
If you watch lots of romantic films with happy endings, you will end up with happy relationships, and if you watch ones that end up unhappily, your life will follow! Also, what kind of music do you listen to, happy or not? Most people don't realise they are happily singing along to songs about break-ups and wonder why life sucks!
What kind of books do you read? Are they happy and up-beat or dark and Nietsche-like!?
Are they philosophy books which tell you to question everything, and undermine anything you could base a firm life foundation on?
And of course, some people are better conduits for this creation-energy than others, and so create what they envision faster than others, or Instant Karma, as John Lennon put it.
So what I think is: the more energy we give to war, the more we expand it.
As Mother Theresa is alleged to have said, "I won't march to protest war, but invite me to a peace rally and I'll be there!"
And I should really end 'A hui hou' which means 'until next time' rather than aloha, but more people have heard of aloha (which often means 'I love you'
a hui hou
