I watched a TV documentary last night called Tonight about a family who had been burgled. While the father was fighting for survival with one of the burglars who had a knife, he ended up stabbing the burglar who subsequently died. The man was arrested on suspicion of murder but was later released without charge as the Crown Prosecution Service ruled that he was acting in self defence. See Guardian news report.
The programmed raised the question about how much force someone has to use to defend their family in such a situation. Does the law have to be changed?
I believe as long as we are living in a reality of fear, we all need to do what we can to protect ourselves.
In the world, people protect their family and property with insurance, sophisticated alarm systems, guard dogs or even employ people as guards and bodyguards.
I believe the most effect form of protection is Love and I believe there are three ways this can be achieved.
1. Practise radiating love to all or sending love to all. When you give out love, love is magnified in your experience and that love will keep you and your loved ones safe at all times and keep out "intruders."
2. Acknowledge Love's omnipresence at all times. Then you are automatically under Love's jurisdiction and Love will keep you and your loved ones safe at all times.
3. Realise that there is only One of Us and our nature is love. In other words, we all share the One Self and we all want each other to be happy. Then there is no need to protect yourself from the other part of you as they always want what is best for you anyway.
Wishing everyone involved in that burglary (victim and survivors) peace.
Love to all.
