Those words live in infamy across the globe. Some of the phrases above translate to “Don’t Forget.” Nevertheless, these words are solidified within the hearts, souls, and minds of billions of humans across the globe for different reasons.
I remember where I was that day when I watched the towers burn and crumble…many of us do.
But now 20 years later – what do the words “Never Forget” mean through my own interpretation, growth, learning, and internal development?
Never Forgetting the Lives Sacrificed
While many see war as a necessary means to an end – I no longer do. That said, I will never forget the millions of lives sacrificed around the globe for what these men and women believe to be the greater good, on all sides, not just from the standpoint of an “American.”
These brave souls stand, fight, and often die in the line of duty for their nations. As human consciousness continues to evolve, I can see a day in the not so distant future through which we do not solve conflict through acts of war and further violence.
War is an outdated belief system that can be un-programmed in the minds of our leaders. We need not resolve disagreements through acts of violence and murder. There are other, more spiritual and soulful answers against those actions that are more egoic and worldly in nature.
All of that said – I will never forget the tens if not hundreds of millions of souls across the globe that have given their physical lives for what they believed in. While I don’t find it necessary any longer, I acknowledge the “up to now” aspect of the human consciousness. I respect and appreciate all lives around the globe that have served their countries and died for their respective causes.
My hope, belief, and meditation is that all soldiers around the globe lay down their arms before their leaders and commit that they will fight no more.
For we need not sacrifice another human soul through the act of war if we choose not too listen to those calling upon us for more war. There are better ways – better solutions to resolving conflict and disagreement.
Never Forgetting to Bring More Love to the World
Love is the antithesis to hate as well as the overarching answer to solving it. Without sounding too “hippieish” – all we need is love.
This is a fact. As human kind moves up the spiritual levels of consciousness, love is where we begin to show more care, appreciation, and connectedness with the world. Above the levels of love are joy, peace, and enlightenment:
I will never forget that we are all human first. No matter our difference of opinion, political alignments, spiritual belief system; we are in this human playground experience together.
In this hyper-polarized world in which we live, I continue to work to observe the pendulum swing of the principle of rhythm.
As the power controllers of the world aim to stay within power, I believe it is often intended to generate more hate, division, opposition, and in-fighting. It is my opinion that this is by design to hold humanity back or slow our progress of collective consciousness evolution.
I will not forget that humankind is wising up to these Hegelian dialectic tactics:
Thus, I will not forget to see you as a “human being first” over all other labels that we have given ourselves or have received from society.
Never Forgetting that United We Stand – Divided We Fall
Above all else…
I have learned in the last 20 years that we are connected on this planet not only through a physical nature, but spiritually as well.
We truly are all connected. There is no force on this planet that can stop us if we collectively bond together. Yes, there is work to be done. All of humanity is slowly waking up to the fact that there are manipulators abound that are trying desperately to hold us back.
Every tactic in the book of psychological warfare is being cast upon as globally. I believe the archaic operating system of power and control is crumbling around us. Thus it is why we are experiencing such extremes.
Never forget that we are many, they are few. Their intentions are to hold us back, retard our spiritual, collective conscious evolution.
Never forget that it is humanity’s destiny to push forward and reach it’s full potential.
Perhaps the pivotal point that took our breath away and caused our collective hearts to skip a beat twenty years ago to the day on September 11th, 2001 was the beginning of the outdated oligarchy beginning to crumble apart.
I will never forget those lives lost then, after, and continued.
For it is through them, that my then closed eyes – are now wide open…
