Tunnel Vision by John Cali

Nearly the whole world is aware of the April BP oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. It certainly has been heart-wrenching to see all the trauma and pain the spill has caused humans, animals, plants, and the gulf itself.

Most of the mainstream news media have been doing a lot of hand-wringing, finger-pointing, and projecting dark scenarios far into the future. The focus is almost totally on the problem. That simply contributes energy to prolonging the problem.

I’m not saying we should ignore the problem. But don’t you think we should put most of our focus on the solution — and become part of the solution?

I saw a short video news report a few weeks ago. It took a very different perspective from the mainstream news media.

While the oil spill is surely a huge and tragic ecological disaster, it affects a relatively small part of the Gulf of Mexico. Only 189 miles of shoreline were affected at the time of the video report. But, according to the report, the gulf has 7,500 total miles of fishable shoreline.

This was the first news report I’d seen with those statistics. Nearly everyone else was acting like this was the end of the world.

Talk about tunnel vision!

But the news media are made up of human beings. And don’t we, as human beings, often focus on the negatives and fail to see all the positives in our lives?

Here’s Spirit.

The obvious answer to John’s question is, yes, humans do often focus mostly on the negatives, ignoring the positives in their lives.

We agree with John — there is far too much focus on the problems and not enough on the solutions.

Certainly ignoring problems completely is not the answer. But neither is all the criticism and condemnation.

Friends, we know many of you, the lightworkers, see what we’re getting at here. As your scientist Albert Einstein said, “You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew.”

Why do you suppose that is?

It’s all a matter of vibration, of energy.

What good does it do to launch into tirades of blame and anger, as many have with BP and others as the targets?

Not very much.

All that does is to further pollute the Gulf of Mexico. Yes, energy, negative vibrations can and do pollute. They pollute your bodies, minds, and spirits. And certainly, as your Dr. Masaru Emoto has demonstrated, energy can pollute (or heal) bodies of water such as the Gulf of Mexico.

You would serve yourselves, your planet, and all its living creatures far better if you refrained from all the negativity. Don’t even read any more of the news reports. You’ve probably read more than you intended anyway.

Do not prolong and perpetuate the problem with your fear-based focus and thoughts.

Instead become, as John said, part of the solution. There are many ways you can do this. You can donate money to organizations and individuals doing the cleanup. You can meditate, holding the gulf in your prayerful thoughts. You can refuse to participate in negative conversations. There is so much you can do to help.

Most of all, friends, you can use the power of love. Send loving thoughts and energy to all those directly involved: BP, your US federal and state governments, the cleanup companies, etc. And certainly the humans, plants, and animals directly affected in and around the gulf.

Love truly is the answer to this, and to every other problem your planet faces today.


P.S. After we finished this newsletter I read a short article in the Washington Post, saying 26,388 square miles of fishing waters in the Gulf of Mexico had been reopened. There’s plenty of good news out there!
