OT... Our Biggest Enemy

Our biggest enemy..... Complacency..... It's a killer in many ways...

In light of the most recent tragic events on 9/11, I feel compelled to speak my mind. There is no need to repeat what occurred that day. We all have seen the unthinkable become reality, some more so than most.
In NYC, things gradually are returning to "normal", or as normal as it will ever be. People can still see the voids left by the destruction of the Twin Towers, feel the loss and grieve over loved ones who perished that day. But life goes on....

However, life will, or never should be the same. Many will return to their previous schedules and routines and quite possibly place these horrible event in the back of there minds. Some must do this as a survival mechanism as they might have witnessed what one should never have to see. The fact is that it never really goes away, nor should it.

Complacency is the next enemy that we must fight. It might take time for many to become it's victims and many will fall prey to it. It will attack us on many levels. We are creatures of habit and easily fall into our own ruts and routines in all aspects of our lives. We might take for granted precious moments, forgetting to say "I love you" to our loved ones. We might overlook and fully appreciate a rising or setting sun, a beautiful tree, a majestic landscape or even the complexities of an insect. Most won't, in their rush to work, feel what direction the winds originates from that morning or see the starlit tapestry in the sky. This is sad.......

We are never guaranteed another sunrise. Things can happen and they do. We must expand a higher awareness from our personal safety into our senses, saturating them. Take in the majestic to the minute. Bask in the glory of it all. Take in every moment.....

I suppose a natural extension of this is being thankful. This is another topic for another day. However, I will say that I'm even thankful of the vibes in my Sami as so much good has come from it (obligatory Zook content). Friendships, knowledge, and yes, even awareness.....

I appreciate everyone for allowing me the latitude to go OT as often as I do. If I have offended anyone or if anyone feels that this type of post shouldn't be posted, please let me know. My intent is not to alienate but rather to open eyes......

All Good Medicine,
Crow

Well said again Crowhorse, complacency is definately the enemy within. I hope that the pending strikes on the Taliban regime in Afghanistan will put a seriuos dent(Literally as well as figuratively), in there sponsoring of terrorism around the world.

Many "things", good and bad have happened to me in my life. I do not take anything for granted. The other day I was getting out of my car and a crisp wind caught me by surprise. The smell and sensations of the fall air brought back many good memories. You have to notice "things" in order to remenber them. We all should slow down and take notice of the important things in life. Love & laughter have to be two of the most important to remember........
