What a difference a day makes...

What a difference a day makes…says the song. To remain topical I thought it interesting to take news stories on one day and look at them in the light of Spiritualist philosophy. I have chosen Tuesday 17th April 2012, for no reason other than it was the day I began this article.

It was the second day of the trial of Anders Behring Breivik. What an appalling series of events we saw unfolding last July. A bomb exploding, killing eight in Oslo, seemed bad enough, but then we had thrust into our vision pictures of those sixty-nine people being massacred unmercifully by a cold-blooded killer – like the horror films or violent computer games so popular with many young men.

I have no doubt that thoughts of revenge, as merciless as the killings themselves, filled many minds during those first hours. It is difficult to see such carnage and not want to strike back. Such a response may have lasted days, weeks, months even, but now, at a time of examination of reasons, and passing of judgement on this man, how do we view the future based on our interpretation of our personal principles?
