Please Extend Compassion To The People Of Japan
Kathlyn Kingdon, March 14, 2011
In the aftermath of the recent shocking earthquakes in Japan, I urge you to spend some focused time sending compassion to those whose lives have been so radically altered. Please use your full meditative force to send a calming wave of equilibrium to this disaster zone. Envision relief being extended to the people of Japan.
This series of catastrophic seismic events began last Friday with an 8.9-magnitude earthquake, Japan's strongest on record, and the tsunami that followed. It has continued with powerful aftershocks, so far numbering 200 quakes of magnitude 5 or greater. Scientists are reporting that the quake shifted the Earth's rotation on its axis, effectively shortening the length of a day by an infinitesimal amount.1 Further, scientific sensors show that the force of the quakes have actually moved Japan roughly 12 feet closer to North America and shifted the nation downward about two feet.
As Japanese officials frantically pump sea water into reactors to prevent meltdown at two of their nuclear power plants, and as people flee the Fukushima area, please be mindful of your brothers and sisters in Japan. May they find liberation from the incredible stress that descends upon their nation. May their lives be returned to some semblance of normalcy as quickly as possible.
If it is possible for you to do so, please add this small act of service to your ongoing daily meditations this month for Libya, Egypt and the Mid-East/Northern Africa. Continue to send waves of healing around the planet as a whole - and specifically to our brothers and sisters bearing the irreparable damage to their lives and loved ones lost.
