    My God Tonz this is so devastating my heart is so heavy those poor people, I feel so useless unable to do anything to help makes me feel guilty to have a roof over my head and all the things we take for granted,all I can do is to light a candle and send thoughts of relief and yes most of all pray I feel so sad I must move away from reading too many heart rending posts and go onto something a little lighter, just until I can deal a bit better with it, don't mean to sound selfish truly I don't, just finding it hard and at the same time knowing there is not much else I can do to help.

    I don't think people should feel guilty for what they have. People should make the most of it, use it to its best. We can help Nepal. We can help people/places closer to us. Compassion, prayers, candle lighting, those are great things. Whatever we can do to spread love and peace, even some light-heartedness, is good. There are myriad ways people can help.

    Your most sincere feelings help Gardener in the energy matrix that we are all a part of . And I'm sorry to have brought heaviness to your heart.

    The quake was at a telling depth, 10 km. This is the signature of a manufactured quake. All suspicious quakes happen at this exact, and shallow, depth.

    The horror reporting that takes place on most forums is tedious and counter-productive, IMO. It is too much about what "they" are doing to us and almost nothing about what we are going to do in the face of these encroachments in our lives and freedom.

    Focus is energy given and what we focus on matters.

    Thanks ModWiz.... GOOD "eye"!!! Seems like a "false flag" distraction . I know it's effed up, and I send what I can to these areas, but I focus on what can do in my local reality.

    I agree with modwiz in his observations regarding this matter, however I will post some more information in respect to those who will no longer take a part of the beauty of Nepal.

    My heart is with you all in deep condolences...




    A powerful earthquake — the country's worst in 80 years — rocked mountainous Nepal on Saturday, killing more than 1,800 people and leveling buildings and centuries-old temples. Dozens if not hundreds remained trapped under mounds of rubble.

    Hospitals in the capital of Katmandu were so crowded that many of the injured were treated outside in the open, according to local media. The magnitude-7.8 quake, which shook a wide swath of northern India, Bangladesh, Tibet and Pakistan, also triggered avalanches in the Himalayas, killing at least 10 people on Mount Everest.

    Nepal police said at least 1,805 people were killed. Given the scale of the destruction, the death toll was expected to rise. An emergency Cabinet meeting designated 29 districts as crisis zones, the Home Affairs Ministry said.

    Tens of thousands of people, fearful of aftershocks bringing down more buildings, gathered outside during the night.

    "My entire neighborhood is still in shock," said Chiranjibi Gurung in Katmandu. "My children who were inside the houses at the time of the earthquake are scared to go inside now even at this time of the night."

    Around 180 bodies were pulled from the ruins of the nine-story Dharhara Tower in the center of the capital, China's official Xinhua News Agency reports. It said about 200 were feared trapped in the rubble of the tower in the city's historic Basantapur Durbar Square.

    "We had heard the earthquake stories from our ancestors and how I remember my grandparents telling me about the devastation of the 1934 earthquake and how it uprooted the Dharahara Tower then," said Sabita Lal of Katmandu. "I saw the same thing happen today to the tower. It was a massive one."

    ---

    Another Katmandu resident, Deepen Bista, whose house was damaged, said the big jolt "was longer than we had experienced before, it lasted a little more than a minute." The downtown area of the capital — with old houses and narrow lanes — was hardest hit, he said.

    City hospitals were quickly overwhelmed. Dozens were gathered in the parking lot of Norvic International Hospital, where thin mattresses were spread on the ground for patients rushed outside, some wearing hospital pajamas. A woman with a bandage on her head sat in a set of chairs pulled from the hospital waiting room. Doctors and nurses had hooked up some patients to IV drips in the parking lot, or were giving people oxygen.

    The quake struck before noon local time about 50 miles northwest of Katmandu in an area that the U.S. Geological Survey calls one of the most seismically hazardous regions on Earth. It is at the spot where the India plate collides with the Eurasia plate in a process that created the towering Himalayas.

    The quake, which was felt as far away as Lahore in Pakistan, Lhasa in Tibet, and Dhaka, Bangladesh, was followed by about 15 aftershocks, including one registered at a magnitude of 6.6. At least 34 were killed in India, 12 in Tibet and two in Bangladesh. Two Chinese citizens died on the Nepal-China border.

    Finance Minister Ram Sharan Mahat said on Twitter that the quake had destroyed about 90% of about 1,000 homes and huts in the Laprak and Barpak villages near the epicenter. (...)

    Nepal is a place I want to visit in my life. Perhaps even live there. I wear clothes from Nepal everyday and just got a gift from there this evening. The mourning all the more grievous because this looks deliberate and therefore criminal.

    The motives still elude me.

    The sadness does not.

    There is still amazing beauty walking hand in hand with the shadows.

    The light will never go away no matter how hard anyone try.
