Terrorism comes in many many forms.
Dictionary definition of Terrorism:
‘the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes’
Today if you have been following the latest news feeds, you will have noticed the breaking story about the Charlie Hebdo attack where you had gunmen storming into the building and killing 12 individuals in a mass shooting.
What seems to take center stage when such atrocities take place is the whole point of ‘who did it’ and ‘how to bring justice’ upon those responsible. It immediately becomes about retribution. It immediately becomes about pointing the finger.
‘They’ will pay!
But who is ‘They’ ?
Are we not ALL Here on planet earth existing as one race as mankind?
So how is it that we as a species have become so disjointed and disconnected from this principle that we are ONE GROUP, that we will kill our own kind, or that we will perpetuate such acts of violence through demanding that those responsible must be brought to ‘justice’ again missing the point that we are ALL one Group. The Group that is Earth.
Boarders have seemed to really confused things. Because its like what we are doing is segregating ourselves and isolating ourselves from one another where then we become enemies instead of standing in the recognition that we are all flesh and bone and blood equal and one.
So who is responsible for the shootings that took place today in France. Well, we ALL are. The Race that is the Human Race.
If you can’t see this then you just might be brainwashed.
When is the last time YOU committed an act of Terrorism?
When is the last time you had a nasty thought towards someone that you know?
When the last time you reacted in anger towards a co-worker?
When is the last time you had a conversation with someone in your mind where you were arguing with them?
When is the last time you said something nasty to your partner because they said something to you first and so they deserved it.
These are all forms of Terrorism from the Inner Terrorist inside us ALL.
I would say a first step we ALL can take to end Terrorism is to STOP ALL Terrorism that is present within ourselves as thought, word, and deed.
Id suggest investigate the Principle and Tool of Self Forgiveness as being Shown in the Journey To Life Blogs written by those individuals who have taken on the challenge of Taking Responsibility for themselves and all that is here on planet earth.
A First Step you can take to ending Terrorism in this world is to stop ALL terrorism inside yourself first.
