projection. It projects anger and blame out into the world because it does not want tofeel its rage, its fear and its sadness. No matter what anybody tells you, perfect healing
possible. But it cannot occur at the level of ego. This is why anger and blame begat angerand blame. The ego will constantly try to go one up on the “other”. Today, America“won”. In September 2001, Al Qaeda “won”. Who will “win” tomorrow?In truth at the level of mind, there is no winner, because the ego is fundamentally insane. It chooses chaos and separation where peace and love are possible - and possibleright now. Yet to feel that peace and love, we have to feel our pain. That is why so many refuse peace. That is why we hate and blame. That is why we feel “good” when theenemy is “defeated.” It is simply the ego’s sense of justification that its insanity is“right.” There is the promise of peace in the future, but true peace cannot be delivered by worldly action alone.

Right now.Do you?Look again at the face of Bin Laden, above. What do you feel? If you are in a suitableplace, say out loud what you think and feel (internalise it if you are in public). But as youdo so, don’t get caught in the story of the ego. Just witness it.
I hate you. You are evil. You are a monster. You tried to destroy my people. I am glad you are dead. Fuck you!
It is not wrong to feel or think such things. It is just the way of the ego. If you feel suchthings, just confess it to God. Own it, but don't believe the ego's story.Now, turn away from the image of Bin Laden. Place your attention on some simpleobject near your computer. Feel yourself breathing, and bring yourself fully into your
