No event in the history of the world changed the course of history, physical and spiritual, like the event that occurred in New York and Washington DC on September 11, 2001. The event ushered in the beginning of a new era. The new era would begin the process of joining together the physical and spiritual identity of man into one.

More note worthy events have occurred in this world and it has occurred that there have been more innocent people killed, murdered and tortured than the lives that were taken on that fateful 9/11 day. However, never before in the history of the world has there been a time that the whole world shared the grief over one event as the one that occurred on that day.
The events of that day had been in the making for thousands of years, but the physical event itself did not begin to touch the symbolic magnitude of it. The question of who has the right to govern creation was answered on the day, but this was not something that was seen by humankind, but instead felt because of the massive overwhelming feelings of grief and sadness that were expressed as waves of compassion moved throughout the world.
At a deep level we knew that this event would change the face of complacency and the whole world would be forced to change direction. Without this change of direction the world was headed in a downward spiral motion, which would end in ultimate destruction. The forces of evil had pushed the symbolic envelope to begin mass panic and fear, which would signal the end; but instead something else occurred.
We were all in shock that day, but the terror of the event did not stop the support and love that occurred throughout the world; thus terror was not the victor, Love was. Never before had the whole world taken a stand against evil at the same instant, and this was the shift the world needed to bring it into alignment with a higher ability to Love, which will bring about the peaceful conditions that this world so desparately needs. The world needed only to give Heaven an instant of perfect Love for it to enter and give the world a new meaning.
Although many believe that the feelings of love and support have gone by the wayside since 911, it is impossible for Heaven to forget. The cry for Help that arose out of the devastation was answered immediately answered by Love, and we all felt it. Once Love at this level was released into the world, the world would never be the same. This would not have noticeable effects immediately, but the eventual outcome would remain until the end of time.

The old must make way for the new. The old physical interpretation of the world must make way for a new spiritual one. For every event that occurs in this physical world that brings sadness and grief, there is another interpretation that has the ability to bring another meaning that brings new hope for a better understanding. Without this interpretation, we are forced to accept an evil interpretation that brings loss and despair. We have a choice, but sometimes when tragedy occurs it is easy to forget that there is another way of looking that can bring new choices that will create new circumstances. Most of the time we feel our choices are caught between the best of two evils, but this isn't the case anymore.

Every 2000 years a major spiritual event occurs. The last major spiritual event was the life of Christ. 2000 years before that, Moses led the Isrealites out of Egypt. 2000 years before that, the spiritual history of the world began. Before that, the physical history of the world was considered the greater of the two. The physical and spiritual history of the world are different from the perspective that the physical history deals with man's ability to be logical and use the intellect as a source of survival in this world. Intellectual or physical history deals with how force and manipulation brought us to this day.
On the other hand, spiritual history has always dealt with a righteous heart and how Love sets all things right. The intellectual understanding of a matter has never been the heart of the matter. That is, until the events of September 11, 2001. On that day, the heart and the intellect crossed paths, and nothing would ever be the same again. The shift that occurred on that day would bring about a new interpretation to this world that could only heal the world by giving it a new meaning that would include the heart. On that fateful day, the physical history and the spiritual history at last met and stared at one another, symbolic face to face. Recognition and acknowledgment of the purpose of Love had at last been recognized and acknowledged in this world, and the reality of the physical world would at last begin to become a part of eternal truth. The end of days would bring the earth to the justice of Heaven, and it would be found good.

At a conscious level, we did not see the meeting; all we could see was the destruction. For the forces of the intellect and the spirit to meet would indeed bring about a dramatic climax that would be symbolized by an event that would shock and shake the world at its very core. The meeting of these two forces were foretold millions of years before. The outcome of this meeting would bring about a New World where peace would at last govern and rule with Love and compassion.
The intellect did not readily understand what was occurring. It looked at the devastation and could not see the new beginning, but spirit saw, and knew that an unseen shift had occurred. A new life force was rising from the ashes. The destruction of the Twin Towers symbolized the bringing down of both the physical and spiritual interpretation as separate so they could eventually become one in purpose.

The New Interpretation of 9/11.
The Twin Towers represents the dual identity of man. One is physical and the other is spiritual. Both had to be destroyed so that a new idea or new creation could arise from the ashes. This is the symbolic rising of the Pheonix. The new interpretation will join the physical experience with the spiritual expression, and they will ultimately live side by side in peace. The lion, or the physical nature of man, along side the sheep, or the spiritual idea in the heart, and a child will lead them all. The child is the innocent nature of the spirit gently guiding the intellect to peace.
If you look at where the Pentagon is located, it looks like the heart of America. Evil forces tried to destroy all of the heart, where righteousness abides. The literal destruction of righteousness is impossible, but the part that evil did try to claim was destroyed. The heart is now symbolically free to choose a new alternative.

After the destruction of the towers a time of healing would occur. This is the evolutionary shift that is occurring right now. The innocent heart must take precidence over the beastial or physical nature, so peace can be learned at the level of the heart. This is the end of guilt or sin, which is the symbolic lower nature that governs behavior. The end of the judgment of behavior also signifies the end of the evil rule that is commonly referred to as the inner demons that brings men to do evil deeds. Man no longer need be at odds with His God, for the heart has been restored to righteousness. No longer is the heart observed as just a physical organ that pumps blood to the body. God has returned Home, and the world rejoices for peace has come at last to the world and is recognized as our true reality. On that fateful day of 9/11 a new path was taken, and for humanity it made all the difference.
