Observations from Sandy's Stellar-Craft  EDITORIAL Comment from Sandy's Stellar-Craft:

Have you done your homework? Do you just Click FWD without thinking?The Metaphysics of Chain Letters

This Alphabet of Friendship came to us via e-mail.
It had been forwarded from many friends to many others,
which is truly a wonderful thing. However, we are deeply
troubled by the metaphysical implications of the admonition
at the end, which accompanies many such e-mail "good news" items.
(we include this only so you will recognize it in the future)
It clearly stated that:

"If you send this to:
0 people: Something terrible will happen,
            like losing a best friend.

1-5 people: You will have a good day.
6-10 people: You will have a great week.
11-15 people: You will have a good month,
    and get surprised everyday.
16 & up: You will have a successful life,
    and all your dreams will come true!"
Careless waving of Magic Wands can do great damage.

We are fully aware that everyone's intention in forwarding
this e-mail to their friends was one of love. Perhaps they would
be shocked to learn, however, that they were also performing
an "evil" deed, i.e. BLACK MAGICK, by including a threat
of ill-fate if the rules are not followed!

This is not Love, nor is it Friendship.

This is coercion and manipulation.

Some say not to take it seriously ~ then why say it at all?
And if not, why should we believe the rest of it?
Some say that without it people won't send it to anyone,
but instilling fear of retribution in the recipient is simply
NOT a message of Love. This is why we all hate chain letters,
not because of the content, but because of the guilt-trip!

It appears that we have become so distanced from our natural senses
that we do not even recognize the inconsistencies of our messages.
How can we send a message of supportive friendship,
and a threat of the loss of a best friend, in the same note?

Might we suggest that people take the time to BE the Friend
described above, rather than sending a message of love
accompanied by an ultimatum? Why not just delete
the "fortune-telling" part, and add your own sentiment?!
Then it will be a genuine offering of Love,
and totally karma-free (clear conscience).

Now wouldn't that be nice?
