was recently forwarded an email from someone expressing the way they
felt about on-line petitions. They believe they don't work because
signatures and addresses needs to be present, and feel that our email
addresses can be used for spam, etc. (By the way, the majority don't ask
for email addresses, so no chance to spam there.) But, I quite
understand their viewpoint. It certainly seems that in some cases
on-line petition appears to have no effect on the three dimensional
outcome. Incidentally, this is not always the case. The recent on line
petition to stop the dogs being culled in
did succeed - very quickly.
Joyfully, we are not confined to the third dimension. We know, as
spiritual beings, that every intent, every prayer, every thought of
'right' has a great power. While ever that is not always immediately
visible to each person at the time, it is none-the-less present. For
those who don't see it, faith is required. Understanding that divine
order exists through all life, we can then choose to trust that there is
always a higher perspective to every single action or event that takes
place in our lives, individually, nationally or internationally -
whether we can see it or not! When we acknowledge that other dimensions
exist beyond the third, we can view things differently. We can look at
each individual event and allow our heart to steer us and participate in
those that feel right to us personally. Because as soon as we make a
fixed stand in our thinking and say to ourselves that we will 'always'
do certain things a certain way or we will 'never' do certain things, we
confine ourselves to the third dimension and our thinking mind. That
prevents us from being spontaneous in our decision making and able to
use our intuition and heart felt responses.
An example of an 'apparently' useless petition was the Iraqi war
protests. The display of people using their power of choice,
brought us major peace rallies in 600 cities around the world. Thousands
more in smaller towns, with prayers and meditations involved further
millions of people. This incredible desire for peace, compassion and
tolerance expressed itself across the world. Many millions of people
joined in one unified thought of compassion, saying 'We don't want
innocent people to be killed. There has to be another way'.
And yet the governments ignored that voice of the people and went ahead
with the war. It seems like it all failed and it was a complete waste of
time for all the millions who got out of bed that day and voted with
But what was really happening from a higher perspective - on that
amazing day where people poured into the streets around the world? I was
with the crowds, experiencing a most magical day. The Ritz hotel playing
'All you need is Love' loud and clear over the streets as the city
jammed to overflowing with millions of people from all over the UK,
walked together, quietly united, singing, playing music, laughing and
chatting - all with one intention and all with love in their hearts.
There were so many people that the entire width of the 4 lane streets
and pavements were used and it took all day for the last people to reach
the park where speeches were being held.
The proposed Iraqi war was a divine opportunity for the people of
this planet to make a choice between love and compassion - or
intolerance and judgment. There is absolutely no doubt they chose
love and compassion. From a divine perspective, we are often offered
(attract) national and international events that provide a choice for
the people to move into their heart or not (such as
). This particular choice for compassion over the Iraqi war gave the
Earth a major leap in her ascension process.
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />The fact that
some governments ignored the people’s wishes for peace was a separate
issue which involved its own learning. One outcome was that a lot of
previously hidden information has surfaced, e.g. we now have
international recognition that governments lied over the claims of
weapons of mass destruction - and it exposed the oil issue. There
was a lot more - and there is more to come.
I believe, everything has a higher reason for its existence.
So, I expect I'll go on, as ever, and will -
a) sign the petitions that feel right for me,
2) see whether it feels right to forward on to others or 3) delete it.
Hopefully, (without too much 'thinking ' about it) I will get it
right enough, often enough!!!!!!!
It is all about INTENT. Signing a petition requires 'intent' on the
part of the person signing. It asks that person to make their
wishes known - to the universe.
The letter above was
my respose to the following email that was being sent out by
someone (sender's name has been removed).
Sent:Saturday, May 12, 2007 Subject: Fwd/ No Use Petitions.........waste of energy?
IS A REALLY IMPORTANT MESSAGE. PLEASE
FORWARD ONTO FRIENDS......... Despite the fact that I have
sent out several information emails over the past years explaining in detail
why Email Petitons do not work, I still get good friends and others sending me
yet another petition to sign and send on.
They don't work, they have no effect at the end destination that they are aimed at, and further, they
can crash websites, block ordinary email's passage and you will also wind
up on yet another list for somebody else's spam. I do not send on any email
petitions that I receive, I always delete them. Do not waste your time
with them, it simply does not bring the result you hope for no matter how
heart-rending the cause.... - - - FromSnopes.com To whom it concerns:
A word to the wise. Email petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or
any other municipality. To be acceptable petitions must have signed
signatures and your full address. Same with "prayer chains" -
Almost all emails that ask you
to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that mass
letter years ago that asked people to send business cards to the little
kid in Florida who wanted to break the
Guinness Book of Records for the most cards.
All it was, andall
this type of e-mail is, is to get names and "cookies" tracking
info for tele-marketers and spammers to validate active e-mail accounts
for their own purposes.
Any time you see an e-mail that
says forward this on to "10" of your friends, sign this
petition, or you'll get good luck, or whatever, it has either an e-mail
tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and e-mails of those
folks you forward to, or the host sender is getting a copy each time it
gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of "active"
e-mails to use in spam e-mails, or sell to others that do.
Please forward this notice to others and you will be providing a good
service to your friends, and will be rewarded by not getting 30,000 spam
e-mails in the future.
(If you have been sending out
the above kinds of email, now you know why you get so much spam!)
