When tragedy strikes...

It is easy to forget that our thoughts are not private. Thoughts are energy, an energy that attracts like energy. When we are all thinking judgmental thoughts, and the like energy of those thoughts are all banding together, the intensity of that energy reaches critical mass.

Each one of us contributes to the collective mind; negatively when we have any level of ill feelings towards another human being and positively when we choose to observe the best in another human being. We are all responsible in every encounter we make. Massive tragedy is always a tipping point within the collective mind.

The remedy:
When we catch ourselves passing judgment, on any level – and we all do it – make a conscious effort to reverse it by appreciating something instead. Eventually, with practice, we can change our unconscious habits and in turn, the collective mind.
