Armageddon - The End of the World?

There are many people who believe in Armageddon - the end of the world as prophesied in the Bible will come. Let me say this - your faith can move mountains. Many of these people have strong faith ... and unfortunately, they believe the end of the world is coming. I advise you to develop your faith as well - think of it as a muscle that need to be developed. Faith in yourself. Faith in a merciful and loving God. Ground yourself in that space. Use that faith to heal yourself and heal the world.

Maybe the Muslim think the Americans are the AntiChrist - Satan, and Americans think the Muslims are the AntiChrist - Satan. Both of them want to fulfill that prophecy and they just beating one another up, each thinking they are doing the right thing, prepares the way for Christ to come back.

It's not the historical Christ that comes back, but each of you brings the spirit of Christ back within you, through love and compassion, as you witness the suffering around you. That is how he comes back, through you. And He will heal the world, through you. So develop your faith and your inner power.

Cindy Sheehan leaves the 'anti war' movement

I read the letter written by Cindy. I can understand her frustration. I read some of the posts, and indeed, people are just putting one another down with their words. I thought Bush was bad, but some of these posts are just unbelievable, with so much anger within them. It's like competition, to see who can destroy another person's ego quicker.

I too was disappointed with Congress decision to cave in to President Bush demand.

Well, Cindy, take care. Don't give up hope.

President Carter criticized Bush as the worst president

Many attacked President Carter for criticizing Bush as the worst president. Worst is a relative term.

Bush has a way of angering and intimidate people with his words. He said some of the most threatening and divisive language I have ever encountered. 'Axis of Evil', 'Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists', 'If we don't fight them there, they will follow us home'. He doesn't want to participate the Kyoto treaty. He doesn't want to participate in the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. On the contrary, he wants to build a new generation of smaller nuclear bombs, and has announced that for the first time, the United States will consider as part of deterrence strategy to consider using nuclear weapons in a first strike attack against non-nuclear states. And you wonder why North Korea and Iran build nuclear weapons - they don't want to be the 'non-nuclear' states for Bush to strike, especially with his 'pre-emptive' strike policy.

Let's face it. This war is about oil. They can't tell you that. America's economy is dependent on oil. Iraq has oil. That's the ugly reality. Can America live and prosper without oil? So America should learn to develop technologies to rid itself of its dependence on oil.

And talking about 'God' telling him to do this, that just about did it for me. Please leave God out of this. Don't put words into His mouth. He created this garden to us to play in. We pick out the roles that we want to play. We are part of Him and therefore, we too are indestructible. We just changes form, and we get to choose again and again and again. It never ends. We are energy, and at this moment, we are condensed into physical matter, so we can feel and touch, and experience 'time'. This is the miracle, it happens everyday so we don't notice it, but this is a miracle. Enjoy yourself.

I would much prefer to build a world based on love rather based on fear, and I understand President Carter's frustration with Bush which prompted him to say the things he did.

Al Qaeda claims to capture US soldiers

When you hear of news like this, how do you feel? Fear? Anger? Hatred? Powerlessness?

Al Qaeda said it's to get 'revenge' for the rape that US soldiers have done. Well, with hatred in their heart, they probably can come up with any number of reasons to justify their actions.

Bin Laden vows to 'bankrupt' America, and with this continuing war, and with Bush insisting on it being a long war, and with Congress afraid to cease funding of war, Bin Laden probably will get his wishes.

Yes, it's a long struggle. There are many unhappy people out there, and some resort to destructive means to get even. If America doesn't share its wealth, it will bankrupt America.

I would suggest that instead of getting into a 'panic' mode, remain calm. I am sure the destructiveness is not just to America, but all over the world. Get cooperation with other countries. Be patient and study them. If you need to target them, be precise, and by no means have sufficient evidence to back it up. The last thing the world wants to hear is another innocent person dies.

Death is a part of life. When they die, they are liberated from this Earth and moves on. However, those who are here might experience pain because of their loss. That pain can be alleviated by letting go of the attachment. Appreciate them when they are here, but when they go, let them go.

In the mean time, focus on the positive. Spend your time helping your local community. Those who loss a loved one from Iraq suffers and they can use some help. As the business community goes global, either because of expanding markets or because of cheap labor overseas, Americans at home are at an increasing risk of losing their jobs and they can use some help. Students from overseas go to American Institutions for their education, yet schools at home are struggling to teach their kids (because of too many distractions, I think), they can use some help. Homeless people can use some help. There are so many opportunities here to make a difference in people's life, and when you make a difference in people's life, it does make you feel better and thankful for having the opportunity to make a difference in people's life.

I remember during the Vietnam War, the bombs initially scared me. I would hide. But if you live life and has to hide every day from fear, you don't have a life. You are prisoner of your fear. You eventually adapt and get rid of this fear to liberate yourself. Tough times can teach a powerful lesson. It's kind of difficult to learn that lesson when the bomb doesn't explode right next to you or the gun pointed at your head, but if you feel fear right now, learn to master that fear. You are the master. You steer the course.
