It’s scary to think that maybe in myself is contained some of the extreme disconnect that a violent person feels before going on a rampage, even one so heinous as killing someone. I want to deny that I could do something like that, but I have to admit that the feelings are right there. I’m feeling separate from everyone and I know it. Today, I am so entrenched in my story that if I were unstable, undernourished, or easily knocked off center, I could harm someone. Most likely, I would hurt myself first. The truth is, that I AM hurting myself by maintaining my victim story.
I just DID something about the killings in Connecticutt. Since Friday, when a young man went on a rampage and killed 27 people and himself, I have wondered what I can do about it.
Colin Tipping’s article puts into clear words an action that I can whole-heartedly take. In his email to his Radical Living Community, he encourages us to be open to raising our own vibration through a willingness to be open to the possibility that the situation has a Spiritual perfection in it, possibly for several reasons:
In my heart, a shepherd
In my head, a king
Before the Child together, they offer what they bring
The heart will fire the head
The head will light the heart
The Spirit Child within will know LOVE’S healing art.
What are your thoughts and reflections on this verse?
Ut hoy! (That’s the shepherds’ greeting from the play!)
