The answer is far more fundamental than avoiding public gatherings, passing stricter laws, or fighting over who and what is to blame. The solution is much more basic than any superficial, feel-good remedy that features external options that consistently prove to be temporary and wildly ineffective. But the process is personal and, therefore, much more challenging because it calls upon us as individuals to repair ourselves.
Repairing our emotional wounds--our internal damage--from the inside out, transforming your inner darkness into radiant light is a monumentally demanding task. But when you understand the ways of energy, self repair becomes the only practical path to peace, whether individual, familial, or worldwide.
This is not magic. Energy is innocuous. It radiates from all things, including you. The state of your personal energy determines your life experience and, thereby, alters the experiences of those around you, and in turn, those around the ones your energy affects. Collective energy--whether utilized for the positive or negative--is extremely powerful. Consider the intensity of people gathered for healing purposes or the opposite: mob rule.
When you direct your energy into assuming conscious and personal control of your emotional and physical life, into repairing the most personal, most hidden wounds you carry, you earn your place in the collective good, in the universal light of healing and repair. You earn your place because by nature’s laws, light must be evolved into and we can only evolve through truth, desire, and supportive action for our own wellbeing.
Through personal repair we enrich and strengthen the entire whole of which we are a part. As the whole becomes stronger, the light radiates further into places of untold darkness and increases its evolutionary strength. It is a matter of weights and measures--the positive outweighing the negative.
When we place vital effort into creating light instead of falling into the dark despair of anger, retaliation, and hopelessness and trapping ourselves in a vortex of negative situations that destroys our positive energy, we unite in the formidable push forward toward the light of evolution.
Repairing our emotional wounds--this is what we can do. Temporary, superficial fixes to matters of necessary evolution will never work. This is simply universal principle, the way nature works. The answer is not doing good works. The answer is repairing yourself so that you are the good works.
