The Power of the People
Look at this picture: It is from a protest that took place at Rabin Square a few days ago, in the heart of Tel-Aviv.
100,000 people from across the spectrum, religious, secular, right, left, from the cities and from the countryside, the old and young, gather tonight to demand that Olmert resign and take advantage of the opportunity to throw in other current events going on right now that they are fighting. You can read more about here in English, and here in Hebrew.
I’m not about to get into what triggered this event or my personal views on the subject., Right now, that is totally irrelevant.
It has been proven over and over again that our thoughts create our reality. What we think, what we feel and what manifests - is always a match.
Mother Theresa once said “I will never attend an anti-war rally; if you have a peace rally, invite me.” She understood the incredible ‘ways of the world’.
Now look at the picture again:
Can you feel it? Can you envision you are there? Do you hear the cries of the tens of thousands of sad and frustrated protesters? Can you hear the speeches? The angry speeches? And the heart-breaking speeches from families who lost their soldiers to the war? Can you see the big screens and the helicopter flying above the masses and the police working to keep everything and everyone under control?
I cant help but wonder what good could this whole situation really be doing to us as a country, as a nation. What do these people really hope to achieve? That Olmert resigns?
Ok, let’s just say they succeed…
The question is: then what? Then will they be happy? Will that prove
to be the solution?
Is there another way?
