"...AND HAVE A GOOD LIFE!"
By
Odete Martins Bigote

ATTACK ON AMERICA?


Our life experiences have taught us that we all come to earth with an
ego. Fear, hate, anger, guilt, separation, false love are some of the
components of our ego thought system.

Does the ego have a purpose? The answer is, of course, yes! But the ego's
purpose is twofold: one seems to be more visible, and we think it is easy to
handle, and to understand, the other is the opposite.

For something to be visible, easy to handle, and to understand, it must be
above all, something we are familiar with. Something our mind has been
trained to accept at first sight. Consequently, some of the most visible
purposes of the ego are to make us feel different, separate and, above all,
to make us suffer, to feel pain and anger.

WHAT ABOUT THE INVISIBLE PURPOSE OF THE EGO?

The events that terrorized America, on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, present
us with a great opportunity to answer this question. The two towers that were
destroyed in New York City symbolize the great power and tremendous strength
of the peoples of the world, not the least of which are the American people.
They were named "twin towers."  The word "twin" suggests equality,
connectedness, and interrelatedness. The site was named World Trade Center.
It could have been named, for instance, American Plaza, or New York Square.
But is was not because the name had to encompass the whole earth, the whole
globe. Furthermore, the word "trade," means to exchange commodities, and also
mutual communication.

WHAT WAS EXCHANGED, AND HOW?
AND WHAT WAS THAT COMMUNICATION?

Let's examine some of the events, and the role cellular phones play in modern
life.
Allow me to quote part of a message left on a telephone answering machine by
one of the heroes. His message was a quiet and peaceful good-bye to his
family, including his mother. His last sentence was: "... and have a good
life."

As you read this sentence, you may cry. But let that be a cry of thanks, as
you acknowledge receiving energies of love, courage, strength and, above all,
a new form of understanding how the universe works, or better yet, how you
can make the universe work. YOU GIVE AND YOU RECEIVE. YOU RECEIVE AND YOU
GIVE.

Was the ego in charge of this man's thoughts? Absolutely not. Had his message
come from his ego thought system, it could have been something like this: "
Mom, Mom. I'm going to die. I do not want to go yet. I'm afraid. I'm
afraid..."

What happens when you allow the ego to get out of the way? Your Higher Self
(A Higher Intelligence) takes over. You are not separate from your Higher
Self, neither are you alone: this is a fact, whether you believe it or not.
This is science and spirituality which has nothing to do with religion. Your
Higher Self lets you release fear, hate, anger, guilt, etc., and reverses
them to true love, hope, courage and, above all, a new understanding of who
you are, and why you are here now. This is what is conveyed in this message,
as well as other messages given by some of the heroes before they disposed of
their bodies. This was the exchange of commodities, and mutual communication.
A part of your thought system gives you fear, hate, guilt, etc., the other
reverses them.

Thoughts are sent to you to see how you handle them. The choice is yours. You
have free will. Thoughts, like words, are not neutral: they have
consequences. Your actions come from your thoughts. Hate, for instance, may
lead to killing. If you want to stop killing, you have to let go of hate. No
one can do this for you, but yourself.

There was a tremendous amount of energy of love and courage pouring on earth
before, during, and after the events of September 11. The thousands of people
that gave their lives on the airplanes, the Pentagon and World Trade Center
were the means for this communication. They chose, collectively, to do so,
not at a conscious level, of course, but at a level that only they can
understand now. The event was carefully planned even before the World Trade
Center was built. It was planned in a "center." The Compact Edition of the
Oxford English Dictionary (1971), explains that a center is "a point to which
things tend to be attracted to." It also explains that a center "belongs to
the party that holds a position midway between the two extremes." Here was
the stage chosen for the extremes of our ego thought system to be reversed.

More attacks on "centers" were planned, but some did not materialize, at
least for the time being. I'm referring to the airplane that crashed in
Pennsylvania. No one really knows where it was heading to. But we know that
it was the cellular phones in the passengers' hands that saved many lives.
One passenger called his wife to let her know that the airplane had been
hijacked, only to find out that the World Trade Center had already been hit.
So, he chose to fight the hijackers. He called her again to say good-bye, and
asked her to take good care of their children. He also said he knew he would
not survive the ordeal. He was calm. He was courageous. He, too, sent us the
energy of love and courage. But, above all, he showed us that attack/defense
can be loving. Now, we know that there was a terrible fight on that airplane
before it crashed. Everyone on board perished. But we will never know how
many lives were saved on land.

This is the beginning of the unfolding of the events that will change our way
of thinking. These are part of the predictions for the beginning of the
millennium.
EVERYONE IS INVOLVED IN THIS EXCHANGE AND COMMUNICATION.

How can we raise above the battle, transcend it, and become aware of the flow
of energies that are beneficial to us? Listen!  Just listen!  Everyone must
listen: a soldier, a carpenter, a housewife, a minister, a senator, a fire
fighter, a policeman etc.

There are messages all around you and, above all, within you. Your short life
on earth has been meticulously planned so that you learn to listen. The two
men that used their cellular phones to call their families to say good-bye
are just a small example of the many messages we are constantly receiving.
They listened too.

AMERICA HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS AN IDEAL CENTER FOR THIS INTERNAL REVOLUTION. YOU
CAN DO IT!
YOU WILL DO IT!

We are all twins floating in a womb called the universe.

Buddha, who lived about 500 years before Christ, is believed to have said:

          One may conquer in battle a thousand times
          a thousand men, yet he is the best of conquerors
          who conquers himself.

Time has come for all individuals to conquer themselves. Allow yourself to
put down the weapons your ego sends you. Such weapons are called fear, hate,
anger, guilt, separation, etc. Stop attacking yourself NOW. Let go of the
past. Since the past has gone, and you know nothing about the future, the
only time there is, is NOW. Use your time constructively. Allow the energies
of true love, courage and understanding to envelope you.

This is not difficult. But, you must choose to listen. Then, the remembrance
of true love will follow.
