“As you sow, so shall you reap.”
          – Galatians 6:7
"If you do good, you do good for yourselves; and if you do evil, [you do it] to yourselves."
          – Holy Qur’an 17:7

We are linked
By the collective Super Soul.

They slithered into Paris
With death in their eyes
And hearts no longer beating
To the rhythms of life.    
Dark dreams hatched in a den of lies, 
Destined to drench blood and flesh  
Upon tear-stained cobblestones.

We are linked
By the screams that rose to heaven.

Jeanne D’Arc’s golden statue stood witness.
They twisted Allah’s voice to demand     
That all infidels must die.
In his name they launched their attacks.
 In his name . . .?
 Their crimes were blasphemy.  

(Nothing can be done to stop Fate
 So do not pray for Paris –
 She has carried the blood of her people
 And cradled those who have died,  
 For centuries.)

We are linked
By the radiance of transformation.

Call upon love to light your heart,
Cleave through clouds of fear and grief
    and vengeance.
Do not pray for Paris.
Instead, rise from despair and dread. 
Walk into the green forest of your soul’s spring.
Call upon Love to color the world’s darkness
    with its luminescence.
Sit within yourself and feel all that vibrates
    to a higher wisdom.

We are linked
By the collective Super Soul.

All is healing now.
