Hello Fellow Students,
It Theosophical terms, it is safe to say that everything in the
manifested universe is bound to the cause and effect cycle we call
Karma. This would include the events of 9-11, regrardless of the
identity of the perpetrators or the method of destruction used. Karma
is the principle by which balance is maintained in manifestation. The
student learns to realize that he is the author of his own fate, and
to accept responsibility for that which occurs in his life, whether
he can remember the exact causative events or not. A nation could do
the same, given a sufficient amount of national understanding.
Certainly the U'SA, and even Western Civilization, could accept some
culpability for misuse of the finer forces of nature during the past
Kali Yuga. What retribution will be demanded to balance the account
remains to be seen, but it's likely 9-11 fits in there somewhere.
Karma includes both cause and effect. Each effect has a cause and in
turn is a cause of future effects. This is where the power of choice
is so important. Do we choose to act according to the law of our
nature, according to, say for instance, the Golden Rule? Or do we
seek retribution? On such decisions hang all related future events.
As far as who did what when or why, the occultist is cautioned to
keep an open mind. Western politics is full of lies and deception.
It's pretty easy to see how manipulative a system it has become.
Witness some of the effects of the greed and corruption that powers
politics in this cycle. So it is not unreasonable to imagine that
there might be more behind any event than meets the eye. Each
individual learns eventually to examine whatever evidence is
available and apply his own power of discernment to arrive at his own
understanding. In the last analysis, all points of view are true,
simply reflecting different facets of the one Truth, which is all the
truth there is.
Similarly, in the last analysis, it is not a matter of our side is
good and the other side is bad. It's more a matter of we are all on
the same side, all human beings, charged with the responsibility to
realize the fact that all Life is One, that what happens to the least
of us happens to all of us. Separatism is disintegration and
destruction. Unity is constructive and leads to further evolution of
consciousness and that is our goal.
