What Can I Do?

There really are very specific things we can each do when seeking how to respond to all the events  happening on the planet Earth, now.

1. Pray – when we start our efforts with the seeking of a greater communication and connection with the source of wisdom, intelligence, compassion, heart, understanding, patience, loving kindness, mercy and brotherhood – God – then we have a greater chance that our efforts will be healing, helpful, will build rather than tear down, will unite rather than create schisms, and will bring about a real and lasting result.

2. Meditate – when we meditate on the highest spiritual ideals within ourselves – Loving kindness, Peace for souls, cooperation, etc., this reconnects us to our own better parts of ourselves. This also helps to raise the consciousness level available in the world, especially when millions (and there are millions) of others are also praying and meditating for the higher level expressions of Mankind’s presence in this planet.

3. Work on myself, so that I’m not reacting automatically adding to the polarization, anger, blanket accusations, prejudicial statements and hate-filled rhetoric.  Acting responsibly is the ability to respond from a place better than that place where the problem was created.  This doesn’t happen automatically, though.

4. Join with others – when we join others with like hearts and minds, our efforts expand and become stronger in exponential ways. “Where two or more are gathered in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20.  Joining with others strengthens our sense of belonging to a community, it strengthens our own resolve to keep on keeping on, and it strengthens the community as a whole.

Joining with others can also help us feel that we’re not alone in having feelings of great concern for dangerous issues and that we don’t have to face these challenges alone.

5. Pray again.

  1. Hi Jodie – ISIS mentioned New York City as a target. Do you see NYC being attacked like Paris? Also, back in the summer, there was a post about a convention of 200+ psychics and their concern for 2017. Have you heard any more about that or what has them so worried? Thanks. Regards, Grace

    • Regardless of the threats, New York City is a low target. There is very little energy that could manifest at New York City along these lines. By that I mean, No, I don’t see any event happening in New York City like the one that happened in Paris. Does this mean that no one in New York City will ever get hurt from an act of hatred? No. At any time, anyone can act from hatred – anywhere. But, at the same time, prayers, meditation and actions to bring forth kindness, forgiveness, patience, mercy – these acts raise the vibrations of energy set to manifest and can alter the future dramatically, as I and others have seen so many times. As strange as it might be to hear me say this – the 2nd Ghost Busters movie is a good metaphor for energy and the manifesting of energy – both good and bad.

    Jodie, I think your above statement is especially important.

    According to the Kan Ying Pien (Taoist/Buddhist scripture):

    夫心起於善,善雖未為,而吉神已隨之;或心起於惡,惡雖未為,而凶神已隨之。

    Translation: “If your heart gives rise to kind thoughts, even if you have not yet done the good, auspicious deities and their blessings are already following you. However, If your heart gives rise to evil thoughts, even if no evil has been committed yet, inauspicious and fierce spirits are already shadowing you.”

    Thus, it is very important for us to be level-headed and keep our thoughts pure. A calm mind will also aid us in prayer and meditation.

    Moreover, the Buddha has also said that karma is created by body, speech and mind. So keeping our minds positive creates good karma.

    Namo Amitabha,
