Why mass disaster?

QUESTION: Masters, I am from India. Recently there has been devastating natural calamities in Himalayan region in India. Thousands of pilgrims have died in the Holy place. What is the purpose and lesson of the whole episode? Are we failing to learn something here in terms of environment /development balance? ~Ravi, India

ANSWER: This is a group life lesson agreed upon by thousands of souls. The purpose is to get the attention of the world concerning the importance of the ecological management of the planet. The thirst for electrical power is so great in your country with its huge population, and it is complicated by greed, which has superseded a concern for the environment. Because of the diversion of water and the tunnels built for power plants, the entire mountain range is unstable.

Experts have been warning the people and the government for years that care had to be taken, but money won out over common sense. So many officials are involved in the cause that they have tried to silence the reporters and stop accounts from even being released to the public, preventing most people from hearing about the disasters and the extent of the loss of land, houses, and people.

Over 100,000 souls agreed to participate in telling the truth. About 5,000 chose to transition at this time, and the rest, pilgrims from all over the country and world, bore witness to the devastation and the destruction of ancient spiritual sites. The souls hoped that this mass demonstration of the lack of care the industry and government has had for the lives of the people would make them all rethink the direction they are taking. At least, they hoped that this event would generate enough outrage to force a second look at procedures.

Accountability is a goal of this event. Will the people rise up and ask who, what, why regarding the cause of the damage—and how it can be repaired? Too many people have had their heads stuck in the ground ignoring the gross mismanagement of planet Earth. The souls were trying to change that. Only time will tell if they achieved their goal.
