On seeing the horrifying scene of world trade centre being attacked and knowing the pain of those trapped in and their loved ones, not only in New York but across the world millions of people turned into silence, prayer, and meditation. They gathered on the streets, lit candles, wrote condolence, anything to feel solidarity and to spread a wave of love. Churches, temples, mosques and retreat centers were flooded with people seeking to raise their consciousness beyond the senseless killing to a higher, more noble plane. People INSTINCTIVELY turned to the unseen and intangible for their support. It is a silent acknowledgement of what has always been known, namely, that spiritual power can unite, and heal, and transcend the powers of darkness.
This is not the specialty of tragic times only. Even at the height of material prosperity too people may suddenly feel disillusioned and turn to their original nature of being spiritual as happened in the case of ancient people like Buddha …. and in the case of modern people like Bill Gates … Because all are seeking happiness without knowing that it is their very nature, hence they turned extrovert. It’s only a matter of time one will turn spiritual when he doesn’t get what he is looking for from outside! For this to happen a God-appointed channel is not required (which will only create some authoritarians, not spiritual people!) People have to learn from experience [own or of others]. (Galatians 6:7) Yet people are not supposed to cross the limit as He has appointed “His minister” with a sword (Romans 13:1-6)
