Osama more pawn than Terrorist

As long as we are willing to embrace fear and hate we will create more disaster than we know.

If Osama Bin Laden wore a three piece and worked as a Bankster, wall street, he could have wrecked more havoc on America than Al Qaida has in its’ entire existence. Here is the funny part; nobody would have been hunting him. Yes Osama you should have gone into the family business. Oh well he never was the sharpest tool in the shed.

Did we just kill him; did he die a while back? Does any of that really matter? He was not what his publicist (the American Gov’t) made him out to be, in the end he was but a pawn.

Now it seems so many of us are willing to be pawns as we look for someone to blame. The more we apply the hate fear paradigm to life we will continue seeing anyone different (looks, customs, religion, etc) as a Terrorist.

If we truly want a change, we must look to ourselves. Humanity is opening to a fuller potential and it is changing and that is scary. When we allow ourselves to know and accept that if we want to be more, we need to be willing to love (love such an overused, misused word, however I am at a loss for another) ourselves as we are.

I know how that bit of thinking has helped me. As I say that I realize that I must be in awareness to focus on loving myself and seeing others as myself.

We are all but energy that same energy is the very universe in which we live. So fear and hate, or love. You get to choose you see the world. We have been so trained in the fear /hate version, it may take practice to look another way. “Where you focus, is where you are.

So as much as we might like to blame Osama for our world remember “we are responsible for how we think.”

Dostoyevsky said: "One must learn to live onself before one blames others." Bin Laden was just a scapegoat, as you say, someone to divert attention away from the root of the problem. The study of war begins with the study of ourselves. World Peace may be impossible, but at least we can find it in ourselves.

Thank you. Love your poetry. Like the Indians said to Columbus, "you discover us, we discover you, it is all in how you look at it."

He was the mastermind of an attack against the US and what the US stands for. He may have been a symptom of a larger problem though that doesn't excuse his actions.
