motivated twenty-one year old Dylann Roof to murder the nine Emmanuel African Methodist
Episcopal Church Members? Did God allow the killings to happen for a reason? Could God have
prevented it? Why didn't God protect the church members? Do the churches need to employ security
guards to protect them from the possibility of future acts of violence? Out of all of the people
and places in the world, why did this happen to those people and at this church?
wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the
rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
It is no surprise or mystery as to why
murders are happening. Acts of crime and violence is nothing new to this world and it does not
discriminate its victims based on race, religion, political affiliation, education or
financial status. There have been evil, crime and massacres throughout the history of the
world; therefore, the incident in South Carolina is part of the ongoing episode of the story
of life. It's sad to say, but there will be more unless we awaken to our true nature of love
and reverence for life.
crime is no different than the many other mass killings that have happened throughout our
lifetime and before. The motive may appear to be different, however the underlying motive is
always the same ... some emotionally hurt people at times physically hurt other people. Even
though on the surface the motive appears to be racially motivated or a hate crime, Dylann Roof
and any other killer is hurting inside because they do not know love or their purpose for
spiritually unenlightened souls may only see this incident from the human perspective and cannot
discern the underlying spiritual message that life is sending out to the world. Therefore, to
understand the message I will explain it from a spiritual perspective or higher consciousness
level. As Einstein so eloquently stated, "We can’t solve a problem by using the same kind of
thinking that created it." If one is reading this from a lower level of consciousness, their ego
will take offense because their mind is still stuck in the physical dimension of the world where
there is no true understanding or solution.
is meant to be all about love; love is the only reason that we spiritual beings are here on
planet Earth having this human being experience. Therefore, when we do not understand our reason
for existence, we act outside of the spirit of love. The mass murderers and typically anyone who
commits a crime does not feel loved; therefore, this lack of love motivates them to commit crime
and/or other acts of violence.
we do not identify with the fact that we are love, we do not live by the laws of human relations
such as do unto others as you would have them do unto you, treat people as you would like to be
treated and love your neighbor as yourself. All crime and acts of violence is the byproduct of a
person choosing to ignore these laws. And the fact that the person is hurting emotionally causes
them to retaliate against others or the system that they perceive as causing them emotional
person identifies with the spirit of love within them, they no longer have the propensity to
inflict harm on another in any way. However, many people who do not identify with themselves as
being love live by the adage of "an eye for an eye" and they feel that if one hurts them
emotionally or physically, it gives them the right to retaliate and even take someone's life. A
few of the people with this attitude are the next mass murderers waiting for their call to
action. Their mind is operating in such a lower level of consciousness that they are simply void
of love from their limited perspective.
we do not realize that bad experiences happen for a spiritual reason that is misunderstood by
the world it complicates things even more. The unenlightened souls are trying to understand it
with their human mind rather than from the perspective of spiritual wisdom or sixth sense
intelligence. The human mind does not want you to understand it; therefore, it tries to get you
to accept the human perception as the only truth.
are feeling angry, bewildered and confused or any other negative emotion about the church
murders, it is for the purpose to inspire you to grow and seek spiritual understanding which
brings about peace. As bad as it may appear, all negative experiences have a message or lesson
and a blessing in them if they are spiritually discerned.
people are grieving and rightfully so; many churches are probably feeling afraid especially at
the sight of a strange person or person of a different race coming into their church. Is it time
to bear arms in church? Is that the right thing to do? Or, do we stand on our faith and trust
God for protection? It all depends on where a person is in their faith, spiritual understanding
or energy vibration.
message in this awful experience a sign that the church needs to re-evaluate itself? Is it a
sign that the government and education system needs to re-evaluate itself. Is it a sign that
each individual that has hatred and fear in their human understanding of life needs to
re-evaluate themselves? Is it a sign that this country and the world needs to re-evaluate the
way humanity is progressing? Is it a sign that the priorities of the system that we live in is
way out of whack? These are all valid questions that deserve deep analysis at a much higher
level than what our current societal system is capable of comprehending.
because we have been programmed and conditioned to think from a human perception, we do not
understand our spirituality or our spiritual purpose of life. Therefore, massacres and evil are
going to continue to happen until we finally awaken to the message being presented to us. Either
you will be safe based on your faith in spiritual protection and security or vulnerable because
of lack thereof.
it is highly unlikely that the whole world will change anytime soon, the people refusing to grow
spiritually will be left unprotected. They will be vulnerable and susceptible to the negative
experiences that are necessary for their spiritual growth and evolution. Many will pass on
without receiving the lesson or message that was put in front of them for their soul to
for the people that understand and are willing to explore more of the spiritual truth for
enlightenment and understanding, they will come into a new perception of reality that is not
based on flesh and blood but on spirituality and truth. They will have no need to fear a
terrorist attacking their home, church or on any public outings they attend.
have no need for a weapon for protection. They have no fear because they realize that they are
not the body and "no weapon formed against them shall prosper." Their new perception causes the spirit of God to protect them
and they realize that the things they are experiencing are not happening to them, they are
happening for them to spiritually grow and evolve to a higher level of consciousness.
are at peace in a perceived turbulent world because they now know the truth and the truth has
set them free from the shackles of the human mind perception of reality.
what are we going to do? Let us pray for spiritual enlightenment in the name of Love for the
whole world. Establish love, spirituality and holistic success for all as our foundation or core
curriculum to change the mindset of the next generation. Or, we can simply sit back and do
nothing, whereas the alternative will be to continue to create monsters that are hurting and are
out to seek revenge by hurting others due to false perceptions of reality?
