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?

Suicide

Sadness and grief permeate all facets of suicide. The human experiences of those who commit suicide and the human experiences of those who are left behind contain all manners of sorrow and pain before, during and after it is done. From the spiritual side of life, there is another consideration – an  opportunity to grow as a soul is lost.

Many humans will discuss the subject of suicide and condemn the act. Many say it’s not a problem at all.  Many say that it is an unforgivable sin. Many say that the person goes to hell for committing suicide. Many people say many things about what others do.

But, God does not take instruction from mankind. Like so many other things, our experience on the other side is very much based on our beliefs on this side. The standards we set for others are the standards we must be judged by – to some degree.  The point being that God determines what God’s perspective and stance on something is.

In the process of soul growth – the expansion and evolution of the consciousness of an individual spirit inhabiting or not inhabiting a body – we are afforded many opportunities to learn of our relationships to God, to each other and to ourselves. Suicide, like many other things of this type in life, (murder, drug addiction, etc) prevents or stops particular opportunities for the soul to face certain necessary challenges.  But in the eternity of Infinite time, something else is the case.

First, suicide, like so many other experiences, is a personal choice. How we treat others is a choice. How we treat God is a choice. How we treat ourselves is a choice.

When suicide is chosen and acted out, very little of their personal pain, challenges and lessons change for the soul. Their challenges don’t go away. Their suffering doesn’t go away. However, their connection to others on Earth who may have been helpful does go away for a while. Their opportunity to continue learning of the issues at hand does go away for a while.

Still, learning as a whole, does not go away. Starting over at some point in the future and facing the same challenges, doesn’t go away. While we will one day be required to clean up our exact same messes with regards to the people who had been in our physical life, the fact that “God loves a soul who is willing to start over” (Edgar Cayce) means that we are not abandoned in our soul growth after an act of suicide. It will just take longer.  It also means we don’t get to escape from learning a “particular lesson”.

As souls, we have much to learn. As human beings, we have much to learn in the extreme. One of those things to learn is that while many want it to be, suicide isn’t the escape people think it is. There is no escape from the soul work we have to do or the issues, circumstances, and challenges that we must eventually and one day will face.

As human beings we have many experiences that can lead us to think that suicide is the only door open to us. So many of us, if not all of us, must face this perspective that we have potentially within us. One thing to remember, (when the time comes for each of us to answer this question for ourselves,) is that we are not designed to go through life alone. We are designed to need one another.  The need for one another can be said to have been built into our “spiritual DNA” – the very energy/essence of our existence.  It is truth that we are all in this boat together. We are teammates. We can make it through these experiences by connecting to our teammates, relying on others to help us, and one day in turn, maybe us helping some other teammate.

Another thing to remember, is that Christ can truly be thought of as one of our best friends. (We will always have this one best friend.)  When we face the challenges that we will face, we can reach out to our best friends – the friend who is most able to understand and have room for us in their heart.  We can also reach out to any teammates who are “in the boat rowing along side of us (any human whom we find to reach out to.)

While we may argue this point, it really is true – God designed us to need one another. Problems arise when we try to ignore this need.  Problems can be healed and resolved when we understand and act on this need.

Faith in God, Faith in Ourselves, Faith in Others.

If we’re not working on any particular one of these three areas of faith, then we’re trying to sit on a stool with 1 or 2 of it’s 3 legs missing.

Faith in God, we know.  We’ve been taught this, and we try to practice it.  We’re familiar with what it calls for.  This has been with us for a long time growing up and as adults.  It is what is most pointed to when people talk of faith at all.

Faith in ourselves, is a little harder, because it’s easy to forget this.  When we’re struggling with life’s slings and arrows, it’s easy to get lost on our own woes and sorrows.  When we’re overwhelmed with the serious and bulldozing experiences which can come forth in life, we may call upon God and have faith in Him/Her, but it’s easy to forget to have faith also in ourselves to make it through even these desperate challenges.

But, faith in others???

Here is where we stumble and fall over and over, again.  So, many of us think of others and think the worst.  We see the worst in some people and think the worst in all, sometimes.  It is so easy, and it seems automatic, like a recorded response that plays over and over in our minds and hearts triggered by … whatever triggers the response.

Faith in others is one of the more challenging “faiths” to have.  We can easily become cynical, bitter, resentful and angry when we choose to not even try to have faith in others.

Yet, we may have faith in everyone who thinks and feels exactly like we do – everyone who believes exactly like we believe.  However, we may give up the struggle to have faith in any of the many human beings who feel, think and believe differently.

It is so easy to have faith in someone who believes exactly like we do – even though there is no one in existence who believes actually EXACTLY like we do.  It is so easy to have faith in anyone who speaks the same words, espousing the same views, demonstrating the same feelings and thoughts, as we ourselves – even though there is no one in existence who PERFECTLY matches our own views, words, beliefs, feelings and thoughts.

It takes a decision within ourselves to have faith in others, and what can help is to have faith in their higher self – that part of ourselves that is still connected to the Infinite Universal Divine Consciousness, and sees with the eyes of this Divine Perspective.

We have a hard time living our human lives from this Divine Perspective place in our consciousness.  But, the choice still exists for us to make.  In addition, many people seem far, far, away from this place in our consciousness what with the horrors people bring forth in our world.

All things are possible with God, and it is possible to have faith in others when we remember that, like God, who has given them eternity, we, too, can give them eternity to work things out within themselves – working out the cynicism, bitterness, resentment. hatred and more.  1 million, 2 million, 5 million years is not that long for working out inner issues – to change our hearts and minds.  Yet, eternity (which is even more than 5 million years) is what God gives us, and at no time does God abandon us to work on ourselves without Him/Her in all this eternity.  Infinite Love is like that.

We can look at this one life and think we’re doomed, or they’re doomed or he’s bad or she’s wrong or this or that or the like.  But, God looks at us through the eyes of Eternity and in that Eternity, God can do all things – including bring us back into an awareness and Oneness with Infinite Love – the Love that permeates Infinity and connects us to the Love that exists inside Eternity.

With Faith in God, we can better practice faith in ourselves, and with both of these, we can learn how to have faith in others – knowing there is something within each soul that is connected to God and will never be disconnected – remaining connected for Eternity.

“We accept that computers work even though we don’t understand how. We know someone somewhere knows how they work. We have faith in that.

“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.

Cooperating with Love

The reason I don’t title this “Cooperating with God” is because each of us has generated our own idea of God in our heads. We then believe that the idea of God which we have – with all the character traits that we assign to the “God” in our head – is the real God that exists. In essence, as individuals, we have created our own God in our own minds.  Our own minds fall way short in being able to conceptualize the real God.

Even when we join others, in organized religions, or accepted spiritual beliefs systems, we have our own individual slant on these ways of believing. This means that on the Earth today, considering we have 7-8 billion people on the planet, we have that number of ideas of who and what God is. Is there any wonder why when we tell others that our beliefs (ideas in our head of what God is) are right and their beliefs (ideas in their heads of what God is) are wrong (or vice versa)- that we have wars, wars and more wars?

There truly is no way for any human to have a comprehensive and finished idea of who and what God is. If we allow for our learning to change as we grow older, we would also allow for our understanding of God to change as we grow older. The fact is our beliefs and ideas of God were never exactly the same during any part of our lives growing into adulthood. If we continue this path, our idea of God can grow and evolve throughout our entire lives.

The challenge is to accept that our path of learning an ever-growing and changing idea of God, will continue even unto our own death. Don’t worry. This is okay. There is no book, religious or spiritual belief that gives us the task of completely, and comprehensively understanding the ALL OF GOD. We barely learn to understand much of ourselves throughout this entire life. It’s possibly more important to have an open mind about God, than have a complete understanding of God. Remember, once we lock onto the idea, thought or belief that we completely understand God, in any particular moment, we are no longer open to gaining an even greater understanding than we momentarily have.

However, when we start thinking about “Love”, and considering what Love is, we start coming together in similar awareness of the experience of Love. We no longer have billions of ideas of love, but rather billions of experiences of that which is Love. These experiences of love – from the act of loving another person, or life, or life form, we recognize as vastly similar to others’ experiences of love. So, when we talk of Love, each of us has a connection to the concept, feelings, experiences and understanding of Love which other people have as well. For the most part, we all hold to the same sense of what Love is. This is why we can make so many movies with Love as the theme, and so many people can relate and enjoy the movies.

Cooperating with Love becomes understandable. Anyone who loves their partner, spouse, child, parent, sibling, friend, pet, etc, at some point, recognizes that they love them. Loving is a consistent experience. Even if we change the target of our love, we are still able to recognize that we love, when we change targets. When we talk of Love and Loving with someone, we are able to understand the experience to which the other person is referring.

The challenge, then is to cooperate with the Love that we have within us. Instead of acting from an idea of God that is in our head, we act from the love we know first hand. This can vastly change what we put forth into our relationships and into the Earth.

Many will quote the well-known axiom, “God is Love”, but again, we have our billions of different ideas of God that comes with that axiom. In turn, we barely understand what this saying could mean. It’s an idea that starts with an unknown. Some would even say that God is the opposite of Love – anger, hate, vengefulness. Isn’t that what humans exhibit many times when we take up the flag of our own “God” and wage war?

I prefer “Love is God” (Rainbow Cards, ©, 1990-2016). We know the experience of love and loving. The experience of Love and Loving then brings a whole new dimension to the idea of God. This brings a dimension of personal experience. If we’ve experienced Love by loving another, and in turn, allow for the possibility of God being connected to Love, then we can add this experience to our understanding of our limited belief of God. We can add a personal experience of a part of God.

I also prefer, “If we want a direct experience of God, then Love someone.” (Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009)

As human beings, we have the freewill to choose our own beliefs about God and religions. Many will choose “God is hate, God is anger, God is vengefulness” and live from these beliefs – cooperating with these beliefs. But, at anytime, we can also choose to Love, thus making Love real in the Earth and in our relationships – cooperating with Love. Because our understanding of God is ever-changing and ever-growing, we can learn one or the other. While some may choose “God is hate”, we don’t have to do the same. We know that Love is real. We’ve experienced it. We know that Love is good. We’ve experienced that, also. We know that Love is worthwhile. We know that Love is valuable, and we can love at any moment of any day. We know that we can add more Love into this world, and it will change relationships and change the world. We can choose, “Love is God” and make this part of God real in the Earth.

Love is real; love is patient; love is kind; love is forgiving; love is merciful; love is powerful; Love is God.

Beware of Ignorance

Take a look at the world we live in. In looking at the world, look at what human beings’ pursuit of education has offered the world.  At the same time, look at what people’s lack of the pursuit of education – ignorance – has offered the world.  Which state of the mind has offered the best and which has offered the worst for mankind?

There are many that will criticize both – and in doing so, seek to justify their own position.  One might easily argue that it is education that created the atomic bomb and put the whole world in jeopardy.  One might easily argue that it is education that created weapons of destruction, which led to terrorism.  One might equally argue that this or that particular ignorance is the cause of this or that failure in the world.

But, it is ignorance that makes all these arguments.  It is ignorance that takes education and shapes it into tools to serve ignorance.  It is the ignorance in people that look at technology and think different technologies are either good or bad, instead of seeing that deeper within people’s hearts and minds that use technology lies the motivation for how technology is used – for good or for bad.  It is also ignorance that says that this or that shortfall is the cause of a certain problem that the world faces.

The greater ignorance of which I speak is the ignorance of all of humanity being one family.  I speak of the ignorance that we are all brothers and sisters.  This ignorance leads people to further their beliefs of separation based on subjective measurements – like where a person was born, or what color skin a person has, or what religion a person chooses.

While some may think these factors are important, they simply are looking at the surface measurements – which change as rapidly as time.  The boundaries of countries have changed throughout time and will continue, for all countries – all – in time.  The differences of the pigment colors in the skin are superficial, at best, and comparable to what size feet a person has, at worst.  Can you imagine if we chose our cultures and groups based on the size of a person’s foot?  or whether they have freckles? or if they’re left handed or right? or if they gesture with their hands when they talk?  In addition, the use of religious beliefs to separate different groups of people totally defeats the purpose of religious beliefs, which have been meant to help unify people, and not separate people.  Many people who have educated themselves on many religions see the vast number of similarities of religious principles.  The people who haven’t, see much less – the surface.

Education leads a person to examine deeper than the surface.  Ignorance leads a person to believe only what they see or experience on the surface.   Education takes work.  Ignorance is easy.  This is why we find it so easy to choose ignorance.

We all think that we choose education, because we’ve been to school.  Yet, schools aren’t exactly known to teach only truth – more often it is what is accepted in that particular moment in time.  To see this, we only need to compare what specifically was taught in schools 500 years ago, and what is specifically taught in schools, today.  Then looking further, compare what is specifically taught today, to what will be taught in schools 500 years from now.  (Don’t be fooled by the argument of ignorance saying, “We don’t know what will be taught in schools 500 years from now.” Anyone who looks deeper than the surface can come up with some understanding of what the future holds by looking at how education evolves and progresses.)

Beware of Ignorance.  We all have ignorance of some type within us.  All of us.  There is only one way to move away from ignorance – to continue to look deeper into all things – including our own hearts, minds and souls – educating ourselves throughout our entire lives – learning more about our own humanness, our own self, each other, what life is really meant to be about, how to enrich our own minds and hearts, how to interact in the Earth in better ways, how to love, forgive and join with others, how to move beyond our own chosen prison bars, and how to expand ourselves and the planet we live on.

The alternative is ignorance of ourselves, of our own hearts, our own minds, our own souls and our world – hearts, minds, souls and a world which, with ignorance, will shrink and eventually die from a starvation of life and growth.

To continue to learn requires choosing to learn more.  Learning requires informing ourselves and seeking out that which is beyond our current “paradigm” of understanding.  To learn and grow requires seeking beyond the surface of what we think is both true and false to test the validity of our beliefs. To fear to go beyond our own beliefs leads to ignorance.

Everyone is inspired, enlivened, and enriched by something.  Find what inspires, enlivens and enriches.  It will lead to knowing one’s self in ever deeper ways.

“Know Thyself.”

Freewill and Judgement Question

I wonder how you define freewill, I’m a bit theologically curious. I don’t think God is as non judgmental as you seem to [think], and I think you are giving him a get out of jail free card on some things. And my bias is Christian…  V.

Thanks for the comment and question. (Here’s my answer.  I’m sure others would have other answers.)

More important than my understanding of freewill and more important than our differences in our beliefs is the question, “What do we do with our beliefs?”

The world will never have “Peace on Earth, and Goodwill towards all men” if we think we all must believe the same way, because that’s not going to happen.  But, if we look at the question of what do we do with our beliefs, or to what use do we put our beliefs, or how do our own beliefs serve us?, then as we answer this or these questions, our answers will determine how we treat and relate to God, ourselves, and each other.

If we use our beliefs to strengthen our kindness, our compassion, our understanding, mercy and forgiveness, our support, our encouragement, our willingness to hold the hand of those who need a helping hand, then we will find that the world does indeed gain more “Peace on Earth and Goodwill towards all men.”

But, if we use our beliefs to condemn, to criticize, to judge, or to carry out our own vengeance, or our own bitterness, resentment, or hatred, then we will not achieve that which Christ has come to establish.  We can use our beliefs to bury people in guilt and shame.  We can use our beliefs to symbolically stone people to death, until they despair and lose all sense of hope for themselves.  We can use our beliefs to chain and imprison people in blame.   We can use our beliefs in any number of ways to bury people under the weight of the entire world, if we want to choose that.

Regardless of what God chooses to do, to judge or not judge, we can choose, within our own hearts and minds, the beliefs, acts, thoughts and feelings which we want to follow and become who we choose to be.  This is how I define freewill – making a choice on our/my own actions, our/my own feelings, our/my own thoughts, and our/my own beliefs, and then following through with them.

This may seem to some people to contradict the fact that we live on a planet that has a system of justice and imprisonment.  This is a reality on our planet, but each of us still has the choice within us as to whether we condemn another or hate another within our own heart.  Even those that commit crimes, that go through our criminal system, and that are imprisoned – these men and women are loved by someone, and most certainly by Christ,  in addition to being the recipients of Infinite Love from our Infinite God, who also offers Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Understanding, Infinite Mercy to you, me and everyone else.

This means that everyone, no matter what we, of our own freewill have chosen to act out, or think, or believe, — everyone is already worthy enough to be loved — with no exceptions — and no one can stop this love going to another person.  We can only stop what comes to ourselves.

When we realize this is for all of us, and let the Infinite Expressions of God come forth for all of us, then we have (to use the common phrase) “accepted the keys to the kingdom” – the keys to that existence where Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Mercy, Infinite Understanding, Infinite Patience, Infinite Compassion and Infinite Love all exist and are ours both within and without.

But, wait, there’s more.  (Sorry, it was too tempting to write that sentence.)  We don’t have to wait until we die to accept this, because of our own freewill, we can choose – within our hearts and minds today to act, to think, to relate, to treat others from that place within us where God lives and where we can draw upon Infinite Mercy, Infinite Patience, Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Understanding and Infinite Love when dealing with each other.  This is called, “creating a Heaven on Earth.”

God has given us freewill to make our own choices.  These choices of actions, feelings, emotions, thoughts, beliefs and more, – we make these choices every minute of every day.  As humans, we are a mixed bag of all of these, including being judgmental and condemning at times.  With that, it’s not unheard of our wanting God to follow our lead and be like we are, judging who and what we judge, rather than us follow Christ’s lead – being patient, forgiving and merciful – letting go of judgement.

Thank you, again, for your comments and question.  This is how I answer, and I’m sure it is very different than many others’ answer.
