The London Bomb Blasts In The Wake of September 11
By Spiritual Teacher Dave Oshana

Dave Oshana wrote a spiritual commentary immediately after the London Bomb Blasts. In it he recalls his inner experiences at the time of the September 11 attacks in America.

Some of the concepts maybe new for many student but there is no time to give a full explanation. Therefore, the article is being distributed as it is.

Oshana will make a special visit to London after the 11-day July Retreat. Details will be released soon.

Immediately after the 9-11 terrorist attacks in America, my office was deluged with requests for spiritual commentary from journals, web-sites and individuals.

Whilst many spiritual leaders did speak out, especially in America, I found myself unable to make a meaningful public statement. The world froze in horror, as the TV networks endlessly re-played a shaky movie of planes crashing into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center - the terrifying images indelibly etched upon the global psyche.

My immediate concerns were for the spirit-souls of the recent victims, who not realising that they were dead, frenziedly sought for their physical bodies. When the disorientation and shock from the blasts wore off, these spirit-souls, began to experience unbearable pain. Every soul aches to forget the traumatic memories which in time it must face.

Spiritual aid-work is not easily verbalised, especially during a state of emergency crisis. Those who know specialised healing arts, such as, releasing earth-bound souls, are too busy helping. There's no time to talk.

The London bomb attacks hit close to my old home, and I know some whose day was affected by the attacks. A relative, who had been assigned work near one "sudden kill-zone" was fortunately un-assigned just one hour before the carnage erupted.

I was in deep contemplation within an ancient stone chapel at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, when the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center exploded on September 11, 2001. Soon after, the first bone-shaking shockwaves of death arrived on the etheric plane - manifesting through the portal known as the "Mists of Avalon". The day after, peace pilgrims converted that chapel into a memoriam shrine, filling it with candles, prayer-letters and news-cuttings.

Tragically, it was a disaster waiting to happen. No words of consolation are possible in the shocking light of truth where cold reality prevails. These particular attacks had long existed as hate-thought-forms waiting to manifest through human beings.

Mountains of negativity and hate exist in many countries, not only America. The only saving grace is that those mountains (and valleys) of darkness are generally neutralised by equal amounts of love, light and positivity (symbolised by the "Two Towers" in "Lord of The Rings"). The consequences of upsetting this delicate balance of forces in the wrong direction is full-scale destruction of the human race.

When darkness rips a hole in the light-shield around the Earth, negative entities flood in and start to affect human behaviour. Wise old traditions are discontinued, and new behaviours are installed in the populace. Every new crime against humanity increases the grip of darkness over a region, reducing the peace in ever-tighter and more vicious cycles.

No nation is immune from the complex laws of historical cause-and-effect - its karmic legacy. Whilst fickle humans easily forget the sins of previous generations, the Universe never forgets. Everything is on record - somewhere.

How complex is the karmic web of darkness installed in an ancient city such as London, capital of the former British Empire? What hidden energies preside over its various neighbourhoods where terrible things strangely recur with frightening regularity? In what spirit were London's many power-broking buildings crafted, such as, the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Place, the London Stock Exchange, Lambeth Palace and so on? Real London is a hidden city, whose secret history cannot be discovered by ordinary investigative methods.

There is no desire here to blame or point the finger. All human beings suffer from murderous activities, even the perpetrators, who are generally controlled by invisible forces. A victim does not necessarily deserve what happens to him. There are innocent casualties in war, and our Earth is a spiritual battlefield. These complex matters, cannot be understood through glib, simplistic metaphysical phrases, no matter how well-intentioned.

Full understanding comes slowly. The Universe is not in a hurry to give up all her "open secrets" but they are there for the taking - if you find the appropriate keys. As spiritual workers, understanding is not our primary goal. We all have enough information to live and work with. Understanding comes naturally when we are engaged in the process of saving souls. The Universe freely gives such vital information to her helpers.

For conditioned souls trapped inside the endless cycle of reincarnation - death comes, often tragically and frighteningly. An individual who realises the immortality of the soul experiences freedom from the fear of eternal annihilation. This is the real spiritual work that must be done.

It was obvious to me, when I was a Central London resident, that London was "marked for death". Of course, no one really wants to hear this. For many years, I advised my students to "get out of London" and "avoid the Underground".

The bomb blasts came immediately after Londoner's celebrated their "sweet victory of success" at winning the Olympic hosts vote. Sour soon followed sweet. Although, the alleged reason for the bomb attacks was the G8 summit in Scotland, neither the real motive nor the actual group responsible have been identified. Truth is the first casualty in any propaganda war and the public may never know what really happened.

The consciousness of London has been steadily degenerating for many years. The streets are polluted, noisy and crime-infested. Ignorant individuals, possibly drunk or stoned, acted-out on camera behind sober news-readers as emergency workers sought for victim's bodies at what was once my local London Underground Tube station.

Unnecessary death and destruction are a daily, unreported, reality in London, whose over-stretched welfare and emergency services cannot adequately care for her cityizens, especially in times of great need such as these.

The London bomb blasts achieved non-stop international media coverage not only because of their magnitude but also their political significance. The underground explosions on packed rush hour trains were calculated to cause maximum damage, terror and paralysis.

Unfortunately, this recent atrocity is only one in a series of destructive waves which come crashing onto British shores. A violent crescendo is coming which will rock the UK, and the rest of the world, long into the future. Unfortunately, there is nothing that ordinary individuals can do. Some will die, and some will live on.

However, with each terrorist shockwave, the listening individual can hear the "still, small voice of Grace", whose soothing tones, lead the spiritual seeker to enquire within, to drop the illusion of the body, and to discover the security and sure peace found in experiencing the ancient truth that "the soul is eternal" and our true home.

I will continue to regularly fly to London, from my peaceful pine-forested ocean abode in Finland, to awaken spiritual seekers to their true birth-right. Please do the same in your own way, wherever you find yourself in this life.
