Look for GOD when terror strikes

A couple of things happened over the weekend that came to mind when I read the news of the explosion at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

First, I recalled a conversation with Tabby, my nine-year-old daughter, about how fun it would be to go to a concert together.

This morning, the image I held in my mind of loud pop music and screaming kids high on the live concert vibe was replaced with heart​s cracking wide open and cries of terror.

The victims were someone’s child, someone’s mother, someone’s father, someone’s friend.  Here one second and then gone. Those divine expressions in human bodies never to be replaced or repeated. Gone. Forever.

I am sad.

I am sad for those who went out for a good time and didn’t come home.

I am sad for the loved ones who now have a void where once, a short time ago, there was a breathing, vibrant person with dreams to fulfil.

I am sad for those who believe terror and violence is a worthy, holy pursuit.

I am sad for all of us.  Humans: capable of the spectacular and the sadistic.

The second thing, I watched The Moses Code on Sunday.

It begins by telling the story of Moses. When he saw the burning bush, he asked who was the voice in the bush. He was told: “I am that I am.”

The Moses Code hypothesises that there is a comma missing and it should read: “I am that, I am.”  Think about it: I am that, I am.  If it were the voice of the Divine, it’s saying that it’s everywhere and it’s in everything.  With us being expressions of this infinite source (I’m referring to the Creator, not necessarily the version of god portrayed in the Bible) then we too are connected.

We cannot be apart from the atrocities of the world.  The suicide bombers, the Nazis, the holy crusaders, every group or organisation we perceive as capable of evil…. it is not them, it is us.

There is no divide.

I am that, I am.

Equally, the people who do good in this world are not a distant figure but part of the collective connection.  Mother Theresa, Gandhi, anyone who looks out for humanity with kindness.

There is no divide.

I am that, I am.

The Moses Code gives a acronym for GOD: Giving, Oneness, Destiny

We need to remember this more than ever.

Fear is prevalent in our society, not only through the underlying awareness that fellow humans can strike out with such violence and disregard for life at any moment but in general too.  We are taught to be afraid.  We are taught not to trust.  We are taught to be separate from each other.

We need to remember, even in these trying times, that we have a destiny to fulfil while we spend the briefest of moments on this beautiful planet.  And it isn’t about hating, it’s about giving.  We are here to be of service and to give of ourselves to each other because that’s what life is about.

When terror strikes at the heart of a community or in the heart of an individual look for G.O.D because it’s the only way to make our world a better place.
