Why The Tsunami
Know More Than Human Beings
ZERO PLUS 1211 DAYS,--New York, NY, Wednesday,
January 5, 2005--There
is a strange twist of fate surfacing from the death and destruction
of the tsunami in Indonesia and Africa that has taken upwards
of 150,000 lives to date.

The irony facing human beings
is that no animals, no creatures, have been found dead.
The creature's Early Warning
Systems were engaged on December 26 when the earth heaved deep
below the sea and shoved billions of pounds of water onto the
shore, smashing all in its wake and then sucking thousands out
While human beings were
lolling in the sand and playing in the surf under bright, warm
sun and laughing surf, serpents were slithering on their bellies
toward the high ground. Cockroaches were scuttling to find shelter
from the killer waves. Elephants crashed through the jungles
to assure they would be unscathed by the tsunami's wrath. Monkeys
scampered, chattered and swung through the trees to capture
a castle keep that would keep them secure from the tsunami's
Human scientists wading
through the thick sea of dead bodies and decaying human flesh
have been astonished that there is no sign of dead creatures.
While human appendages are being found ten days after the ravaging
surge of nature's power jammed into air shafts, not a single
carcass of a snake, a drowned rat, a monkey's mangled remains
can be found.
There are those who wonder
why the animals of the earth are endowed with the power to know
what is about to happen while human beings, alleged to be the
superior species on the earth, stand dumbfounded as killer waves
crush them into grains of sand.
Charles Darwin in the early
19th Century startled the world by shattering the myth that
human beings were the divine creatures of earth. He brought
science and evolution to confront religion and mysticism and
proposed that the world was based on a single, simple formula:
"survival of the fittest."
He claimed that all species
fought to survive, and the most hearty of them prospered while
the less hearty fell by the wayside and ended up erased, extinct.
Following that thinking,
the tsunami suggests that human beings, despite the arrogance
of their free will and belief they are in charge of the world,
are the most vulnerable and fragile species of all to natural
Conversely, the tsunami reminds all that the creatures
of the earth rule, that they far surpass human beings in the
ability to survive.
tsunami reminds all that the creatures of the earth far
surpass human beings in their ability to survive
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone with
common sense. The earth is some five billion years old. Mammals
came into existence about 200,000 years ago, and fish and the
first vertebra are more than twice as old.
Modern human beings, Homo sapiens sapiens, came
into existence about 50,000 years ago and the first writing
known to humans was developed in Sumeria about 6,000 B.C.
In the scope of "evolution" human beings
are midgets. Whatever "instincts" for survival the
other creatures developed during their growth, humans have yet
to acquire that "sixth sense" that saved millions
of non-humans this past December 26.
Creatures have a built in Sentinel of Vigilance
about natural disasters.
help clear away the debris.....
Humans haven't developed that same power of the
Sentinel of Vigilance.
Perhaps the current War On Terrorism being waged
amidst humanity is a signal that human tsunamis can occur at
any time and any place. A terrorist attack is a tsunami of sorts,
for it suddenly rips holes in society's fabric and lays waste
to the land around its epicenter.
As Darwin noted, the ability of a species to "adapt"
is critical to its survival. One part of human evolution yet
to be achieved is perhaps the ability to generate a "sixth
sense" regarding the presence of Terrorism.
were found among the dead
That sense, however, cannot be acquired without
As long as human beings continue to kowtow to
the Triads of Terrorism--Fear, Intimidation and Complacency--there
can be little room for growth of a sixth sense. Humans will
continue to feel they are victims and powerless against forces
that appear sudden and unpredictable.
But that is false. The only reason anyone gets
the edge on anyone is that the other person is not prepared,
is not expecting the unexpected.
A Sentinel of Vigilance is trained to expect the
unexpected in a positive, fulfilling way. He or she can look
out on the horizon and enjoy its beauty and wonderment while
understanding that the calm beauty can instantly turn into ugly
The beach goers wading in the surf on December
26 suddenly found this to be true. What they didn't expect was
the beaches after being hit hit with the violent force
of the tsunami
In the every day course of life, most of us shine
off the seeds of Fear, Intimidation and Complacency. We tend
to pay little heed to them for we don't recognize them as Seeds
of Terror that left unattended, unweeded, can choke us and blind
us to the Principles of Vigilance.
That's why when we vow to become a Sentinel of
Vigilance, we vow to check and balance and neutralize each and
every Fear Thought, each and every Intimidation Thought and
each and every Complacency Thought with a Courage Thought, a
Conviction Thought and a Right Action for Future Generations
In other words, the sinew of the mind to battle
Terror Thinking must be exercised with the opposite of thoughts
that diminish human beings self value, self appreciation, self
worth. The Sentinel of Vigilance Thinking System allows each
individual to manage and strengthen his or her sixth sense.
The creatures in the tsunami were aware that danger
was coming long before it arrived. Human beings who practice
Sentinel Thinking learn to see beyond the horizon. They see
actions and behaviors that diminish human value and correct
them before they turn into Fear, Intimidation and Complacency.
Human Terrorism is the tsunami of Complacency.
It hits us with full, violent force because we
have not prepared our minds and our souls with the Strength
of the Sentinel. We are dragged out into the sea of Fear, Intimidation
and Complacency because we have nothing to hold onto. We haven't
sharpened and honed our ability to overpower Fear with One Percent
more Courage, and conquer Intimidation with One Percent more
Conviction, and quash Complacency with Right Actions that benefit
The human sixth sense to
deal with internal and external terror is merely in development
In many ways, the human sixth sense to deal with
both internal and external terror--terror of the physical and
emotional ilk--is still in rudimentary development. Evidence
of this is the absence of "dead creatures" in Thailand
and other Indonesian countries.
Many may scoff at the idea that human beings are
underdeveloped Sentinels of Vigilance, but that scoffing may
simply be the Beast of Terror employing his Complacency in the
form of arrogance.
No creature, human or non-human, can ill afford
to not be Vigilant. We look both ways before we cross the street.
We lock our doors at night. We put on seat belts. We watch our
children to keep them out of harm's reach. We practice Vigilance
daily in natural ways.
But, we tend not to prepare for the tsunami of
We don't keep our ears and eyes poised to see
and recognize the footsteps of the Beast of Terror.
When we subscribe to being a Sentinel of Vigilance,
we do it not just to keep ourselves sharp, but to help protect
our children, and all children. The stronger our Vigilance,
the fewer tsunamis we will face.
