There are differences between individual energy and group energy in relation to universal law and karma. As I write this, Hurricane Irene is working its way up the east coast of the United States, and all over the internet spiritual metaphysically inclined people are praying just as reverently as a fundamentalist in any given religion for the storm to be moved. They have good intentions. They want to save lives and prevent property losses, but these good intentions come into conflict with actual universal laws. Having compassion is not taking responsibility and “doing for” other people. I have written about this before and I do know it is a difficult concept. There are however karmic consequences for people who refuse to come to terms with this very painful lesson.
It is hard to watch when things happen that cause suffering. Of course our hearts want to change this. It is only natural when your heart is open to not want to see pain around you. Our current technology makes it possible for us to see all the pain around the planet which is excruciatingly difficult for the sensitive and open hearted among us. I am one of them and I know there are things I have seen that have at times so overwhelmed me that I just wanted to leave the planet. Life is life though, natural and human created events happen. We have responsibility in both. In the human created events our responsibility is obvious but what about the natural ones?
We humans like to build massive infrastructure and often monuments to our supposed greatness. We like to dominate and control things that we should be smart enough to leave alone since we consider ourselves the smartest species on the planet. We think that if we can do something we should do something. Large parts of our cities were built in places no permanent structure should be built. In flood planes of rivers, along coastal areas without elevation from the ocean, near swamps, on land created by moving dirt into lakes and bays, and right on known earthquake faults just to name a few. Here in the United States the Army Corp of Engineers then built all kinds of things to protect land that was never meant to be protected and gave humans false security about living in those areas.
When Europeans first arrived in North America they didn’t know all the hazards of the new place they found themselves. They most certainly though saw and watched the dwellings and lifestyles of different tribes living here who did know the hazards. They obviously did not take heed of this knowledge or even the common sense they should have had in terms of dealing with things like rivers any place on the planet. We collectively need to take responsibility for building this infrastructure where it never should have been. When Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans that was nature saying get the hell out of a place your stuff doesn’t belong. What was our collective response? Defiance! We vowed to rebuild as a testament to our own ego and arrogance as a species. After all we know better than nature right? What happened to the old adage “don’t mess with Mother Nature”?
Arrogant scientists have long messed with anything and everything they could get their hands on. It is no surprise to anyone who would be reading my blog that the weather is being screwed with in multiple ways by various governments and other organizations who want to control the planet and all its resources. They are accumulating huge amounts of karma and of course they just don’t give a damn any more than they care about anything else but power, money and control. What about spiritual people though and specifically the metaphysical, the pagans and other earth, nature based religious types?
As the media has been covering Hurricane Irene there is a greater call among them through prayer and energy to move the hurricane away to save life and property. They do not have this right any more than the world militaries and governments do! Every action has a reaction. When you mess with the weather it affects the whole world. It does not just affect the area that you are praying for.
Let’s get a little into the karmic aspect of this. People (Souls in alignment with Higher Self [Spirit]) plan the moment of their death just like they plan the moment of their birth. They plan the major events in their lives at the least. Some people’s life plan is more like an outline and others is closer to a script. You can be certain though that an event as big as losing a home and all your belongings in a hurricane is a planned life event. The only exception would be if you received the gut instinct to move and did not heed that instinct, in which case you then needed to learn the hard way the lesson of ignoring your instincts.
Difficult large life events like losing everything are things people plan to experience because it offers them unparalleled opportunities for growth. They get to reprioritize their lives and find more meaning. If you participate in a group and successfully move a hurricane in this example away from the intended area you rob them of their CHOSEN experience. You take their opportunity for growth away in your attempt to help them. HOW DARE YOU!! You could also change the death plan for an unknown number of individuals. When you move one system from its course you affect all others. You do not know what that affect will be. With the intent to save some, you may actually be creating a situation far worse some place else on the planet that kills many more people. All these things are them your karmic responsibility. You can be certain you have pissed off an unknown number of higher selves who will want you to right your wrong based in Universal Law.
What is it with death anyway? Is there some reason why we are unwilling to allow people to die in natural ways? No one escapes experiencing the death of ones we love, or strangers, it is part of life. Obviously if you are in the storm and you are praying for your own safety, the universe and the nature spirits would never hold that against you. If you have a specific loved one in the danger area and you are far away and you are praying for the individual you love that is also understood. It is when groups of people join together to attempt to change the outcome for the whole that you break Universal Law. Pray for them to have strength, healing, transformation of stuck energies within them, an easy painless transition if they are to cross over. There are so many prayers that are in harmony, and are not dominating, controlling prayers that can be offered.
I would think a group of earth based spiritual people would also see the interconnectivity of life and the natural ecosystems of our amazing planet. Things that the media calls natural disasters are beautiful amazing acts of ecosystem rebirth! Hurricanes exist for a purpose! They bring rebirth and a natural cycle of flooding and winds that cause a renewal. When you send that energy, that rebirth, away you are denying the nature spirits of that area, life force being brought to them as Creation intended it to work. Once again HOW DARE YOU??!!
A few women on facebook were having a conversation about talking to the hurricanes. One mentioned Katrina being not very nice, that she was going to go and do what she wanted. Ummmm, what did you expect? That does not make those nature spirits mean or nasty or bla bla bla. It makes them a force to be reckoned with as well they should be. They were meant to break down the old so the new can be reborn. It is no different than a volcano in an active state. To pray for a volcano not to erupt would be the equivalent of praying for a person to not ever have a bowel movement. If you were successful you would first cause them to start puking instead, meaning, the energy will be released one way or another and if you continued you would kill the person! The same philosophy applies to the Earth!
The earth and nature spirits have to do their thing. What is, is. We have to get the fuck out of the way or know it is simply a good day to die. A baby may be safe and secure in the womb but you cannot simply decide to keep it there forever because you both like it being safe and secure. Humans have to be responsible for their own choices. In this high tech world we all have access to every possible hazard of our chosen location to live. There is no excuse for pretending we are victims of our choice to live in a flood plane, a hurricane zone, tornado alley, a tsunami zone or an earthquake risk area etc. There is no place that is completely safe or secure EVER. That is why spirit gave us instincts so that we can leave locations that are no longer safe if it is not a good day to die. We should not be rebuilding New Orleans or any other place destroyed because it was built in a place it never should have been. If the pagans of the planet can’t get this simple truth than who the hell will?
Live in harmony with nature or die by nature’s glory! It is just the way of things. Stop trying to control what you have no business trying to control all in the name of love and compassion, because it is neither, and the karma created is yours to balance.
