Prayers for eartquake victims in Indonesia Empty Prayers for eartquake victims in Indonesia

Post by WhiteShaman on October 1st 2009, 8:25 am

I know the “correct” things to say or think to explain tragedies such as the one that is happening in Indonesia right now but I feel that I’ll never be able to fully understand why such things happen. Sad
It breaks my heart to see this magnitude of suffering. Over 500 people confirmed dead already as the result of an earthquake. Sad
To me, such things show me just how much I really don’t understand. Sad
May we all pray that the souls of the dead cross over in peace and that help may come swiftly for those trapped. Praying

Thanks,

My thoughts too go out to all the people caught up in this terrible tragedy, it makes you stop and think that any one of us could have been born to live elsewhere, anywhere than right hear where we are at this moment in time.

In this world and many poorer countries where they have very little to start with, it breaks my heart when tragedy strikes, they then lose the very little they once had.

What you said in your response Vanilla, is something I had thought about deeply years ago and is also something that changed my life considerably.
If you change any bit of our circumstances, for example, if you were born in China or Iran or if you married to someone else or if you were raised poor or rich, then you would not appear to be the same person to someone on the outside at all and very likely to yourself as well.
It made me realize that I am not the man I see in the mirror. It made me realize that I didn’t know who I was which started me on a search of who exactly am I.
Thank you for reminding me of how our circumstances, no matter how apparently good or bad, are exactly what we need to awaken to our true selves. It even sort of helps bring some understanding to tragedies such as this.

my prayers are going out to all the lost souls as well as the one affected by the tragedy with no food or clean water to drink or a roof over their heads.I am so sorry for all of them.What Gods reason could be to have taken all those souls so unexpectedly is beyond any of us.as well as leaving the others totally distraught.But things happen for a reason,i do believe in that.But just the same my prayers are going out to them all. :lovesigh: Praying

My apologies for the late reply, i will send prayers for the next 30 days to all spirits that have moved on and all who have been affected by what many call mother nature. The question i have who or what is mother nature? Is it the Great Spirit, God, Angels, or some other Energy? This is one question that i will continue seeking the one True answer for Meditate

Many Blessings

To me, everything is a manifestation of the divine, so Mother nature, known as the goddess Gaia is the divine manifested as the form, the earth, and everything in it. She is just like us in that she is evolving. She is our source of energy and strength as we live from her bounty.
The moon is another manifested, life filled form, as is the Sun.
I offer you my understanding for your consideration only but I believe any of these beings will prove themselves to you if you but ask.
Peace and Blessings, Praise

You might like this attunement to Gaia...I know I did! Very Happy

Peace

A MEDITATION ON GAIA
From "Ritual of Attunement", August 11th, 1999
From http://www.rainewalker.com/gaia.htm
We invite Gaia to be with us.
Gaia, the very Earth we stand upon, this soil, this rock, this shining, white and blue planet spinning like a living jewel in the blackness of space.
Her waters are Her blood, and our blood. Her valleys and mountains are Her bones, the great rain forests are Her breath. The Clouds, Her moods, Her language. And the four legged beings, the ones that swim, the ones that fly, and we, ourselves - we are Her eyes, Her ears, also the Mind of the Earth.
We invite you to feel the presence of Gaia, to experience the planet itself, a living, breathing, conscious Being, dancing in union with the sun, the moon, the other great Beings in this little corner of the Galaxy.
Feel your feet on the Earth. Feel the heartbeat of Gaia.
Your arms like branches, the crown of your head like the leafy crown of a tree, opening to the sun. Let the breath of the world come in. Breathe it into your heart, let it gather in your heart. And become a tree,
A tree in Gaia's grove.
An aspen tree, on a mountainside. A flowering plum, blowing petals like kisses on a bright spring day. A medicine tree, a eucalyptus, an apple, a poisonous hemlock, a rowen tree
offering red fruit to greedy sparrows.
Become a Boji tree, in the red lands, the dry lands, a tree of bones, where all dreams are dreams of water. Become a tall black oak standing in a snow field, dreaming of the sun's return. Dream with us.
Feel your hands like twigs, your feet like roots, the sun in your leaves.
Feel Gaia's heart beneath your feet, your roots going down, down into darkness, into mystery. Into secret waters, past pottery shards, the bones of ancient antelope, past nameless cities long forgotten, past stone and crystal.
Into the darkness, into the dreaming Earth. Go down, into the Heart of Gaia.
Feel your roots like the roots of a redwood forest, a web of intertwined roots that sustain the great trees, that touch all other trees, all other beings. Send your hearts down, down into the roots. Feel the fibers, the web that connects us to each other, this Circle, this park, this city, the trees, the animals. Feel the flow of energy, sustaining each other. And reach out, reach out and expand your awareness.
Somewhere on the other side of the world, a woman rises to make bread for her family. A child plays in the dust, a painter tries to remember a dream he had the night before as he stands before an empty canvas, a girl in a red sari prepares for her wedding.
Somewhere on the other side of the world, a man is dying alone in great pain. A child is starving. And a woman stands before her ruined home in a place of war.
Feel them, their love, their sorrow. Reach out along your roots.
Somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere a forest is burning, somewhere in the West poisons are pouring into a river, and the river is dying, the land is weeping. Somewhere in the far North the last of a species of song birds is extinct and the fields are silent, the fields are grieving. Somewhere in the East acid rain falls into a lake that fed many generations: and the lake is barren. Feel the sorrow of Gaia, the sorrow of the land.
Somewhere in the South, winter is ending. Somewhere in the East, the sun is rising. Reach out along your roots, and feel the pulse of life.
Bring it up, through your roots, through your feet. And listen, listen to your heart, the beat of Gaia's heart. All one, one rhythm, one beat.
Take that light, that light in each of us, and gather it, and send it down. Down into the Earth, along our roots, our roots in Gaia.
Send it down, into the Earth.
Into the Earth, the best of us,
into the Earth, our roots,
into the Earth, our dreams,
into the Earth, our origins,
into the Earth, our love.
into the Earth, our light.
