A Chance For Peace

I wonder if anyone wonders how God feels? How painful it must be to watch His children fight each other over territory, beliefs, wealth and other material items. If we are all a part of God or a higher power, some energy source which creates and has the capacity of a love we humans cannot comprehend and I believe we are all a part of something much larger than ourselves, I can only imagine the agony He must feel. War, like cancer, is a disease and it seems we do nothing but feed it. We can build machines to destroy each other but we can't seem to help the starving and the truly needy. We spend billions of dollars to send people and objects into space but we cannot seem to take care of the human race. Have we lost the ability to truly communicate with one another? Why are our priorities aimed toward destruction instead of taking care of one another? All this energy wasted on such negative objectives, which have very little chance for positive outcome if we don't do something to save ourselves. Like feeding the hungry, offering free health care and creating a sense of compassion felt throughout the world. Even if the belief system is taken out of the equation, for the atheists and agnostics out there, shouldn't it still be common sense to take care of our own? Would you let your children or even your animals for that matter live in the horrible conditions some humans are subjected to? I know I wouldn't. I would do everything in my power to not only help my own family; I feel it would be second nature to help our neighbors as well. It feels as though we are racing towards something and I'm afraid it's our extinction. As long as we abuse the planet the way we do and let apathy be our guide, we are all one huge train wreck waiting to happen.

Emotional Resonance Theory

Through the years it seems as though we have separated ourselves from one another. Each person caught up in his or her own agenda. In doing so we have isolated ourselves from any type of unity or bond leading to understanding and peace. If we are all part of something much larger, compassion and empathy should replace hate, indifference and apathy.

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.
