Why are there so many white supremacists…?

My question to you is, why are there so many white supremacists here in the USA, who profess to be “good” Christians, who continue to hate Jews and accuse us of conspiracy and part of a Synagogue of Satan? Like my parents before me, I am concerned for my children and grandchildren.  Wandering Jew

First, I want to suggest that the real issue isn’t about “white supremacists”.  Everyone who hates even a little contributes to the hatred in the world.  The real issue and therefore the real question is “Why are there so many human beings that hate?”

But, I can offer you two answers to your question as you ask it.

For all human beings – our human hatred of another does not start in a book, nor a religion or culture, nor a form of government, philosophy, organization, scientific discipline, mathematical equation, or any structure that humans have built and use.  Hatred also does not begin inside any bodily characteristic – i.e. from our DNA leading to body differences like skin color.  Hatred starts inside the hearts and minds of each of us separate individuals who of our own freewill chooses for himself and herself what to feel and think, including who and what to fear.  This has been the case for millennia after millennia of humankind’s existence on the Earth.  Both Love and Hate are choices we can make.

Within any of us who chooses hatred with any of it’s various manifesting forms, within ourselves, each of us individual human beings then chooses that identifying  marker outside of the heart, using that structure or belief system or etc., etc., to support, justify or rationalize acting on our human hatred.

We can use each human belief system, societal structure or anything that exists in the world as a tool for building humanity and our relationships or a tool for destroying humanity and our relationships. All of these items then get usurped for any person’s purposes and agendas which we can hold within our own hearts and minds.

Study the basic precepts of all the structures and systems that I’ve mentioned in the paragraphs above and you’ll discover true wisdom and opportunity to unite people lie within them all.  But, not all people choose (freewill again) to practice the wisdom or take the opportunities to unite when they take hold of the precepts.  As I’ve said, we humans can take hold of a particular belief system in order to support and justify our own feelings, beliefs and actions, as well.

***

The second reason is really the real reason.  It is this:  If we look as deep as possible within the souls, hearts and minds of every human individual, we would see such suffering and pain, that could cause any manner of insane acting out, in order to find something that would relieve one’s own tremendous suffering which can exist within anyone for millennia after millennia.  Were we willing to look at anyone’s suffering and pain (even our own,) it would bring a greater understanding to all of us, and give us good reason to disarm our own weapons aimed at someone else.

Imagine two people on opposite sides of every issue saying this same thing directed at the other, “I hate the suffering and pain which your viewpoint causes and adds to mine and others’ lives.”  In effect, this is what is happening.

Healing both sides is a slow process which comes from taking one step at a time, trying over and over working at it, but it is a process that we are involved in through every prayer we pray, every meditations, every act of mercy, every effort at forgiveness and more.  It is difficult but with God, all things are possible.  Because no law can ever stop our prayers, meditations, mercy, forgiveness, patience, loving kindness, compassion, brotherhood, courage, unity and more happening within our hearts, the process of healing for all of us will never be stopped.  God in all His forms that we believe in is committed to this, and will see it through to the completion for all life.  Our calling is not to try to be perfect but to practice each of these – mercy, understanding, loving kindness, etc – in the human experiences that we face.

The harvest is ready.  Who will become a worker?

Previous Article: Love and Hate

The previous article was heavy.  It wasn’t very uplifting, inspirational, supportive or light.  Hatred is like that, isn’t it.

God’s gift to us isn’t hatred.  God’s gift to us, is that which we are made of – that which is our very essence – that which our spirit existence is based on – Love.  Love is our essence.  Love is our substance.  Love is the material of which we are made of.  God made us in His/Her own image and that image is Love.  We are made out of the spirit substance that is known and recognized to be Love.  For this reason, and from this substance, we live and exist.

We naturally gravitate to love, are attracted to love and long for love.  To all of us beings, love is the round peg finding a round hole – a square peg finding a square hole.

In contrast, we must struggle with all our might to avoid love, to disconnect from love and to push love away (and we do that.)  We must work hard to deny love, because our very own essence is what we are denying.

Many will say, “rubbish” to all this, in an effort to run away from love, in an effort to push away love, in an effort to say “no” to love – which in turn, is running away from ourselves, pushing our self away and saying no to our self.  We do this, because we’re so used to thinking this way – to say no to love.

Being True to Ourselves

We need not do anything to be true to Love.  We need not reach outward to find it, but rather settle into it.   We need not carry out any thought or activity in order to be the essence of love, because it is the substance of which our spirit is made of.  Even if we have shown very little of this essence of which we are, we were created at the beginning of existence as love, and we will exist as love – as our self and the true essence of our self – for all eternity.  Nothing will change this truth – no thought, no action, no behavior.  This is true for every living being.

The challenge is for us to choose how, and when we express the “true-ness” of our love existence.  At any moment, we can choose in that moment to express our true self, or on the other hand, express any of the other imagined necessary reactions to the experiences we consider not worthy of love or not worthy of a form of love.

God is the Consciousness of Love – the Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love.  All the different levels of consciousness which we perceive in the Earth, from the “lowest” form of life to the highest form, are part of this Infiniteness and what is being referred to here.  Therefore, every action, thought, and behavior impacts God and therefore ripples out to Infinity and our self.

If we are unwilling to make these choice to express the truth of the substance of our essence – love – to be our self – our true self, how can we expect others around us or those we are aware of through the media or in positions of prominence to make these choices. If we choose to demonstrate expressions of “non-self/non-love”, how can we expect others to demonstrate the self that is love in return to us. If we are not willing to change our own expressing of that which is not love, how can we expect those who are learning from observing us – our personal example (of which their are many) to learn to change their ways of expressing.

From the essence of the substance of God that we call our individual self with our freewill, we choose how we express life in this world.  No one can force us to hate.  We can only agree to it.  Likewise no one can force anyone to love.  We can only decide to be willing and then carry love out.

Regardless of how much we argue that we were forced to act a certain harmful way, we still know that we were not forced to feel the feelings that led to that harmful act.  We were not forced to think the thoughts that fed the feelings.  We were not forced to perceive the other as worthy of harmful acts.

***

What this means is the phrase, “Be yourself” has a bigger meaning.  For us to be ourselves, we need only to be willing to love and to be loved – in other words, to BE LOVE – to exist as our self – Love.

It’s not easy, but with desire, hope, practice, patience, forgiveness, mercy, compassion and effort one day at a time, we can let ourselves be ourselves, more and more.

“Hatred is Not Justice”

(The title is a quote from the book, “Nosso Lar” by Francisco Cândido Xavier.  It is translated from Portuguese to English in the book, “Astral City”. )

There are many people in the world right now, who currently say that their hatred leads them to bring justice.  We see and hear many people all over the world saying that their hatred brings justice.  But, all sane people know that their saying this, doesn’t make it true.  Yet, frustratingly, like the others, all of us still have times when we grasp hold of the idea thinking that with our hatred, we can enact justice.

But, hatred is not justice.  When we catch ourselves and step back – stepping back from our own hatred, which we can do, albeit asking God’s help to do this – we can acknowledge that the words of the title statement are true words.

In the moments of hatred rising, why do we take hold of the idea that hatred might bring justice?  More often, it is because of our suffering.  We may believe that to be rid of the pain of hatred as well as the suffering of others or our own being attacked by our human brothers and sisters, we must act out of hatred in return, calling it justice.

But, hatred is not justice.  God’s gift to us is not hatred.  In that vein, we may wonder, ‘then what do we do with criminals and terrorist’s?’

There are many things we can do.  We start with God.  Our prayers, our meditations, our acts from the heart – all of these are where we start.  In addition, as the human race, throughout human history, we also have progressed on a path of developing laws designed to govern behavior.  This evolutionary path is not finished.  We are not at the end of evolving lawfully or socially.   Our efforts to walk a higher road has led humans to strive to design laws and create consequences to breaking those laws according to ever higher principles of honest justice.

For us as individuals, we can take a look at our self.  We can choose to let the statement live in our own behaviors and choices. This can help us as individuals to choose a different behavior towards the people in our lives and the people who we only know about on TV.  We can choose to hold onto the principle that hatred is not justice, and then look for ways to make it real in our day-to-day lives, activities and relationships.

When we choose to remember that hatred is not justice, we can also act from this awareness towards those who think that their hatred is their source of justice.  When we act from hatred, we don’t always realize that our hatred is the same as others’ hatred.  We may deny our hatred, and they do, too.  We may justify our hatred, but so do they.  In the end, where is the difference in hatreds?

There are too many examples in the news, every day, of when people act from the belief that their hatred is different – their hatred is righteous – their hatred is justified – their hatred is a gift from God.  No one religion holds the monopoly on these acts of hatred – every philosophy and religion has people who have acted believing hatred (whether in large ways or small ways) is their way to justice.

But, hatred is not justice.  We will evolve beyond hatred, learning this, if we remember one day at a time, that justice does exist, even though we may never, in our own minds and our own paradigms, understand fully how it could be.  We can evolve beyond hatred, with God’s help.  We can evolve beyond hatred through our prayers, our meditations, one day at a time, through our efforts on each day that we remember God and God’s Infinite and unending Love for each of us.

God will never give up on teaching us – “hatred is not justice” – that God is the Justice we seek, in addition to God being Infinite Understanding, Infinite Patience, Infinite Kindness, Infinite Love, Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Peace, Infinite Mercy and more.

These are God’s true gifts to us.

That Worthwhile Deep Within

If you’re wondering what effect government actions will have in the long term, you don’t really need to wait and see. You also don’t need to hang your hopes on promises. We can look at the human race all around the world – not just in the United States – and see the pushback that is happening from people who don’t want human, social and spiritual evolution to occur. The pushback is happening in the form of attempts to revert back to previous states of consciousness and previous states of life.  Peace and cooperation  – not chaos – are products of God’s presence and guidance.  Christ never taught chaos, He taught better things than this.

There are issues and “sicknesses” deep within so many human consciousnesses in the Earth. In fact, one can easily say that we all have issues and illnesses within us. For all of us, these are coming to the surface, becoming visible and even being pseudo-supported by some. The racial, religious, and cultural prejudices all around the world that are now more visible than ever before, are a major part of that which is coming to the surface, having been repressed and buried deep within before now.

There are many that, if possible, would like that these “sicknesses” never came to the surface – that one could hold onto them throughout all time. There are many that think that it is right and just to hate a different culture. There are many that think the only way to have peace and harmony is if everyone is the same – starting with the same skin color, then religious beliefs, then political party, then this, then that. To some degree, no one is completely immune to these thoughts and feelings.

Of course, that argument comes from declaring that love is not the center of our existence and therefore not the center of spiritual law. For some, Love is only an emotion that has little power for healing.

The truth is all of us are the same, and all of us are different. We are the same in that we all – in fact all of life – are spirits of the One God. We are all spirit beings. All life is first a spirit being. All life! That means from the smallest thing that exists to the largest thing that exists – we’re all spirit first.

We are different in that the Infinite Consciousness of God creates Infinitely and not finitely. Infinite Consciousness has created Infinite Possibilities, Infinite forms, Infinite manifestations of Spirit and has given spirits in these Infinite manifestations freewill.

When we choose the path of healing our own issues and illnesses within us, we make a more open path for healing for those that follow us or who may be in our lives.  We open to our own Infinite possibilities, because we open to a greater presence of the Infinite Consciousness.  This changes the status quo within ourselves and within our own environment.

Difficult times are ahead. It will be easy to hate – as easy as it comes. It is one of the easiest things to look down upon, to dismiss, to diminish, and to disrespect. It is as easy as it comes to consider others to be less than worthy of respect from us, less than worthy of being afforded dignity and less than worthy of human kindness from us.

It is difficult – it takes sometimes dogged, persistent effort to do that which is worthwhile – to show respect – to show human kindness – to recognize that every soul is equally worthy of all human rights and all compassion and consideration. It is difficult to change the deepest part of our own souls, because we then have to let go of benefits that we think we gained through countless lifetimes and years of being prejudiced and condemning – putting ourselves above others – pushing others down beneath us.

For some of us, it will be impossible to change, because some of us will consider ourselves alone in the world, and having only our own prejudice and contempt of others as our companions. But, with God – the Infinite Consciousness of God, all things are possible. With God, all things can be accomplished. With God, our deepest fears and selfishness, our deepest disregard and contempt for any others can indeed be changed. With God, we can open to the truth that all others are our brothers and sisters in God’s Infinite Consciousness and Spirit for each of us has that Spirit of Oneness within our very being – giving us our very existence – uniting us all at our very core of our self.

With the Infinite Consciousness of God, we are one, and we will find our way out of our selfishness and our illusion of being alone.  As human beings, we can find our way back to being in the Family of Man.  As souls, we can find our way back to being enveloped in Infinite Peace and united again with the Infinite Love of our Infinite Source of Life.

Seeking the Truth

Every single human being on the face of the Earth, who has lived before and who will live yet, believes that we hold the truth in our own paradigm of our own everyday beliefs.  Holding onto this paradigm can motivate some of us to close our minds and hearts to anything other than what we already have in our own paradigm.  If we’re so convinced that we hold the truth in our beliefs, we will not then open our minds and seek even greater truths.

This is unfortunate indeed.  Even the Bible tells us to “Trust not our own understanding.”

Regardless of whether we believe something is the truth or not, if we look for the truth, with effort, we will find it.  If we look for what is untrue in order to call it true, we will still find it.  If we look for whatever will shore up what we believe, we will find that.  Whatever we seek, we will find.  Whatever we have in our hearts or minds, if we seek more of that, we will find that.  Hence, why is it that we don’t always seek greater truths.

If we have cynicism is our hearts and minds, and we seek to confirm our cynicism, we will find what we want.  If we have doubt in our hearts and minds and want to confirm our doubt, we will find what confirms doubt.

The person who works hard to discern the difference between the truth and that which is untrue, – only through holding onto that desire in one’s heart and mind – will find the truth, and eventually know it.

Christ gives witness to the truth from within our own consciousness and within our own heart.  There is no mistaking Christ coming forth to confirm the truth within our own consciousness.  There is no lie that can stand up to the truth Christ confirms.  There is no prejudice, selfishness, fear or judgement that will stand up the the truth Christ gives witness to.  The truth is based in Love, and it is love which helps us to grow in discernment.  However, we have freewill and so we can still reject what Christ confirms.

So we need not throw the baby out with the bathwater.  It is easy to say, “they are all fake and all lies and all unethical”  It is easy to seek out confirmation of this, but the person who ONLY has their own understandings and beliefs about the world, will stumble and fall over and over again, for as long as they have themselves ONLY that they believe.

There are some us humans who fully intend to mislead, because it serves selfishness and what is desired.  There are some of us who mislead ourselves.  None of these people are easy to pick out, because sometimes there are parts of us that want to believe that what they say is the truth.  There are sometimes that we want to believe what we ourselves are telling ourselves.  We wish it to be true so much that we are willing to believe what is untrue.

But, there are also people who fully seek to put forth effort to be honest and ethical.  To say that all are unethical is to deny the truth.  This is true of leaders, journalists, teachers, and all manners of all people.

It is a good prayer to pray, “Lord, teach me the Truth.  Help me be good soil for the truth you teach.”

One thing I believe I’ve found is that Love and Truth are same, but you’ll still need to decide if you believe it or not.

Can We Heal Karma?

Is there a way to pray to erase bad karma? Can we undo bad acts and bad thoughts before they boomerang on us?  Lisa H.

Karma, or rather a Karmic energy pattern, manifests because of previous causal actions’ vibrations at a certain level “finding” an appropriate circumstance and environment to manifest in a particular person’s life – circumstances and opportunity in which the vibrations of the original causal act/behavior can match. It’s like a round peg finding a round hole to fit in.

Every act we make goes out into the Infinite Consciousness of all Life and gets experienced by all Consciousness – including ourselves when circumstances and the environment match up. We use the term Karma to label causal acts that are painful or harmful. We tend not even to think of positive and helpful acts in the same way, even though all acts/behaviors impact upon Infinite Consciousness and all beings experience them in some manner.

Because the original causal acts are carried out at a certain level of vibration, based on the individual’s and the environment’s vibration, AND because prayer and meditation help to raise vibrations, YES, our prayers can help to raise the vibrations of “Karmic” acts. The influence of prayer and meditation can raise the karmic vibrations set to manifest, like a tuning fork can raise vibrations of lower level tuning forks, and in turn, diminish the impact of Karmic manifestation, and potentially heal it altogether with enough prayer and meditation.  In addition, healing our relationships through kindness, forgiveness, love, compassion, understanding, patience, mercy, humility and more, can also bring in the higher vibrations of God’s Love flowing through our own hearts and minds, which also brings in higher vibrations that can heal or diminish karmic events.

An example of the impact of prayers and meditations is the prediction Edgar Cayce had about New York City. During his reading, he saw New York City being devastated by a city-wide earthquake which leveled the entire city. But, because of prayers and meditations throughout the decades between Edgar Cayce’s time and our time, the karmic manifestation of destructive energy that was returning to its matching starting point was diminished.

On Sept. 11, 2001, only the Twin Towers were destroyed instead of the entire city. Thankfully, this diminishing happened because much of the karmic energy was healed/diminished by people’s efforts. However, sadly, not all of the karmic energy was healed. In doing a reading on it, I saw that it would have taken twice the number people praying and meditating through the decades to keep one building up and 5 times the people to keep both buildings standing. Still, with the people praying and meditating through the decades, we were able to help in the amount demonstrated.

“It is irrelevant whether we can or cannot do something.  What matters is if we’re willing or not willing in our heart.  It is the one who is not willing, who cannot.  It is the one who is willing, who can.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2016, Jodie Senkyrik)

Staying on Our Spiritual Path in Times of Troubles

We may feel that it is especially difficult to stay on our spiritual path in these days of political difficulties.  As Christ said, “Many of the elect will fall away.”  This statement also pertains to when we stumble and fall flat on our faces when trying to maintain our spiritual center.

The real issue is not that we stumble and fall away from our center, but rather that we work to try again and again to return to that center.  It is entirely reasonable to recognize that we will stumble and fall flat on our faces when we struggle with that which we see and hear which can be harmful to ourselves and other people.  We are at a place in our paths where we face strong challenges from within our very own selves – to practice our learning of that which is a higher path to walk in life.

How do we stay on our spiritual path?  When so much upsets us?  by praying for guidance, being willing to try over and over again – one day at a time, holding to and trying to live from a chosen higher ideal, and asking a very important question.  “God, how do I serve You?” [instead of my own fears, anger and aggression towards others]

Remember also Christ’s words to Peter, before Christ ascended.  “Don’t be concerned about those others.  They are my concern.  You follow Me.”

The Illusion of Battle

What is the purpose of all this fear, anger, and aggression? When it’s on both sides of any issue?

There really can be a purpose created from this struggle. One purpose can be to learn what it’s like to walk in the other person’s feelings and thoughts, but from inside ourselves. During this unique learning, if anyone can step back from the fear, anger and aggression, and look at the whole “fear and anger” experience, then we can see that this whole fear, anger, and aggression experience is exactly what the other person is feeling and thinking, too – only on a different side of the issue.

It’s the exact same feelings – fear – anger – aggression, and even righteousness in these feelings. Step back from the motivating issue and look only at the feelings.

If anyone is wondering why the other side is so entrenched in their viewpoints, we can begin to understand at least their fear, their anger and their aggression. We feel the exact same feelings.  There is no better teacher than to walk in another person’s shoes – to feel the same feelings (even when it’s from different thoughts and beliefs.)

Would you give up your current viewpoints when you’re feeling this fear, anger and aggression against opposition to these viewpoints? If you would not, then you can understand, now, why “they” don’t either.

Is there a purpose to being inside the experience of fear, anger, and aggression? There can be. It is to give us a chance to decide whether we want to learn something from this whole 2-sided battle going on.

Moving from 3rd to 4th

If anyone wants to fight, to get their 3rd chakra’s adrenaline going, we can stay in the 3rd chakra for eons and eons and eons – for thousands of millenniums. And if any of us wants to move into our 4th chakra – the chakra of the heart – the chakra from which we can love God above all else, and love our neighbor as our-self, then we can choose that, instead.  In the 3rd chakra, we can readily experience 2-sided battles.  In the 4th chakra, we move out of duality into recognizing a Oneness among us.

The winning of a battle is an illusion. But, using the 3rd chakra, one feels adrenaline in the battle, which brings the belief that adrenaline means power. However, there is no winning of any argument or battle, because we stay in the 3rd chakra when we bring forth our contribution to battle. We only win, when we realize that life isn’t about winning the battle within the 3rd chakra – the battle of fear and adrenaline. We win when we realize there is no battle, only learning.  This realization happens when we move into the 4th, the heart chakra.

It literally is like moving from one world or plane to another world or plane. The experience is very different, and it can only be understood after the move is made.

There is no convincing another to leave their 3rd chakra when it is the adrenaline which they seek from the experience. As it says in the movie “War Games”, the only way to win is to not play.  There is only one way to conquer fear – as Christ says, “Perfect Love casts out fear.” Choosing to move into the heart chakra moves us out of the Solar Plexus chakra.

There is only a choice of where to live – the 3rd chakra or the 4th.  In giving all of us freewill, God lets all of us make our own choice.  Moving into the heart chakra, we can then see that part of the expression of the heart is to let others choose for themselves the lessons and their timing on when to learn them.
