Hello dear readers. I am sure by now that many of you have heard of the antics of the WBC. They are the ones that picket the funerals of military personnel carrying their signs of hate and other various craziness. They even have enlisted young children in their mind-numbing campaign of darkness. I was saddened to hear that Al Snyder the father of a young man who died in Iraq, had to pay over $16,000 in legal fees to the church after his court victory was overturned by a judge on the grounds of the First Amendment.
This clearly has been an emotional issue for me and many others that I know. I am not a supporter of any wars, but will always support our troops as they are my brothers and sisters. I realized that anything that upsets and angers us, lowers our vibration considerably and can bring more of the same in to our world. So what is the proper response to something so heinous and ugly being carried out in our world? Guidance showed me today that we truly ARE all one. A cancer anywhere on the planet is a cancer that affects us all. The WBC are merely reflecting the darkness and hate that already exists in society and really putting it our face! There is no denying the kind of pain they are dishing out. These two middle east conflicts are also emotional issues for many people in the US, so picketing those funerals is really hitting people where they live, so to speak. On one level we can vilify these people for their evil actions, it's certainly easy to do. All of this negative talk and focus on them keeps their coffers full to keep them running to do even more harm. Energy is energy. It's like those kids in school always getting in trouble and the teachers who stated, "negative attention is better than NO attention at all." Look at what a mighty roar they are causing with just 75 members! What kind of mighty roar can we as lightworkers, spiritual folks and just plain good people do?
Sadly, groups like this will not be going away anytime soon. Instead of "fighting" them, perhaps we could love them just like the great Master Jesus Christ suggested? If we cannot bring ourselves to do that, ignoring them is a better strategy as it denies them of the juice that they desperately need to function.
Today I said a prayer for the WBC and I took back my energy from them. Back to feeling GOOD again and focusing on more of what I would like to create in my world.
Wishing you all blessings of peace and light.
