I'm not quite sure why Americans seem to think Christmas is the appropriate time to give thanks to our soldiers. Now we have to color his birthday, which no one can accurately calculate, with the blood of war. The holiday has already suffered loss of meaning by commercialization. People pushing and shoving to get just the right gift for a loved one or friend on Christ's birthday. Some who recognize the holiday don't even believe the man existed. If you don't believe Christ existed at all then DON'T celebrate it. For those proud Americans who seem to think this is the opportune time to bring war into the picture by thanking our soldiers for being in a war that should never have been is appalling. To celebrate bloodshed on this day of all days makes my stomach sick and my heart hurt. I refuse to label myself under any religion because of the dogma that comes with it. People are missing the whole meaning of Christ. He symbolizes unconditional love, trust and unity by embracing diversity. Man made ideologies seem to promote quite the opposite. Only ONE religion can be right. Which is yet another, falsehood. Here we adapt the meaning of Christ to fit our own small minded agendas.

We are all born with a moral compass. Philosophies like treating each other the way we want others to treat us should be common sense. Sadly, it is not because some folks can't realize their full potential spiritually if they don't see beyond the flesh. World peace will never happen if we cannot meet on some common ground and I believe our spirit selves are that common ground. It is the foundation of who we are as individuals and as a complete consciousness. In other words, regardless of beliefs, thoughts, etc., we are all made from the same energy (God) and that is where our roots are found. It is so important to be clear when we communicate with each other because no two people are going to view the same situation in the same way as long as they are using their brains only. We are all here as teachers and students of one another. If we truly could grasp the concept that we are all a part of each other, just imagine how that would change our views and the way we relate to one another. Having your opinion is one thing but to expect others to adhere to what your brain is telling you is preposterous and sadly, there is no unity if we continue to cling to our own ideals without even a chance of imagining how this might affect others in a much larger picture. We are not just a country, we are a world full of people and acceptance comes from embracing our differences for that is the only way we can learn and teach one another. Close minded individuals have no idea what they are missing out on because they cling so tightly to their ideals and beliefs. We cannot all be right or wrong. We just are and just how God intended us to be... individuals as humans but spiritually connected to Him.

We have become consumed by our own wants and needs and disconnected from true emotions weather they originate within ourselves or from others. We seem to shut off all stimuli not pertaining to ourselves. What if we were aware enough and open minded enough to tap into others emotions? What if there were a possibility of emotional resonance, where we all affect each other by a current or wake produced by a collective consciousness? Maybe that’s what true empathy is or why some psychics are so successful. What if déjà vu worked the same way? A person is able to walk through another’s emotional wake and be affected by it because, for whatever reason, that person is in tune to another’s emotional energy or “frequency”.
What if the human race is misunderstanding what we all perceive as emotions? How do we know if they’re really our own or an emotional resonance from someone else or even from another time? If the emotional resonance theory were true there might be people capable of being constantly in tune with other’s emotions or states of mind. I wonder how different the world would be if we were all aware of this possibility.
If you think about it, almost every action a person makes has to do with an emotional state. Unless you’re a robot you cannot escape this. Even those who seem to be in “control” will eventually hit a point where they may reach their emotional limit, leaving those around him or her who are sensitive to this, in an emotional wake or resonance.
With how large the world's population is today, making decisions that affect others, wars break out, anger, hate and many more negative elements that reside within us are at an all time high. What if all of this is due to a misunderstanding of where our own emotions originate? Everything has a resonate frequency so why not our emotions as well? If that were the case, we would be living in an ocean of emotional chaos. Waves and ripples of all sizes, going in different directions, even crashing into one another. If we could harness this somehow or even begin to comprehend this idea, we may be able to actually start living a more peaceful existence. Ever mindful of our actions and how we affect each other. Then we would be a true extension of one another actually living in unity.
