"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil" (Psalm XXIII)
At least since 1980 and the start of the Iraq-Iran war, Iraqis have lived in the shadow of death, repression, war, the decay and destruction of the economy and social services, the growth of religious sectarianism and crime. Such events have created deep karmic currents and thus have drawn to Iraq non-Iraqi military troops, irregular fighters as well as those who try to help and heal.
We must help through thought, meditation, creative visualization, and prayer to hold all those in Iraq in a Healing Light. Such Light will help scars to heal and divisions to be overcome through a knowledge of the unity of all life. As the Chinese sage Seng Ts'an wrote "In the one, there is all. In the all, there is the one. If you know this, you will never worry about being incomplete." René Wadlow
