The Shooting in Connecticut

This is unusual for me, but this is a big enough story that I need to comment on it today.  It is relevant to our journey toward self actualization.

The person who committed the atrocity today, was obviously a human being.  I am thankful that he did not get into political office and that he did not have more control over his being, or we might be suffering another Adolf Hitler.

He may have been troubled, tormented, whatever.  He had a responsibility to get help.  Even if we are not practicitioners of any particular art or tradition, we have a bare minimum of self awareness to know when our way of being has crossed a line.  Crossed a line into darkness.

Regardless of what his “issues” were.  I have nothing but compassion for those families that our now suffering as a result of this person’s misdeeds.

I have no doubt in my mind that this person is suffering in a crushing eternal torment that we will never comprehend.  God’s wrath is swift and precise.

I can only pray and hope that we find a way to prevent people from getting this bad off, and that we as individuals and families if ever faced with this will have the courage to stand against such unspeakable evil.

That is all I have to say.
