Nationalism Produces War


Nationalism always produces war, hatred, bigotry; and class, wealth, and racist divisions. The

illusion that has duped nationalists in all countries, is that whoever the chosen few are in their corner of Creation, whoever and wherever that is, they think they are better, more powerful and more worthy than the rest. They are not.

It is out of fear, lack and want that they spawn lies of scarcity, insane ego and hate. There is also a bottomless greed that sets in, mistakenly thinking all the riches of money, land, and anything else they deem to be of value belongs to them.

Nationalists do not deserve life, nor a better quality of life, more than any other classification of human being who is different from them.

The right to life is God given, not manmade.

Nationalism is not to be solved by bringing about further nationalism, which is only an avoidance of the fact that despite their pigeon hole view of life, they are not better than anyone else.

Nationalism is a poison to a country. It is the problem to be solved peacefully with intelligent diplomacy, not a goal to be attained through manipulation, lies and war. Nationalism is what divides people, not unifies them.

The separate spirit of nationalism is spreading like fire all over the world. Nationalism, under the guise of patriotism, is cultivated and cleverly exploited by those who are seeking further expansion, wider powers, greater enrichment. On one hand each one of us takes part in this process, for we desire these things on a much smaller scale, in our families, jobs and social circles. Conquering other lands and other people provides new markets for goods as well as for political and religious ideologies, as if that is a good idea.

Has it ever occurred to us that it is possible to improve new markets for goods, as well as promoting political and/or religious ideologies with peaceful intelligence? It is possible to have peaceful resolution here all over the world, even now.

Nationalism, the patriotic spirit, class and race consciousness, are all ways of the self, and therefore separate. After all, what is a nation but a group of individuals living together for economic and self-protective reasons? Out of fear and acquisitive self-defense arises the idea of “my country”, with its boundaries and tariff walls, and various walls of separation, rendering brotherhood and the unity of humankind impossible.

It is because of nationalism, ready to defend our sovereign States, our beliefs and acquisitions, that we must be perpetually be armed. Property and ideas have become more important to us than human life, so there is constant antagonism and violence between ourselves and others. By maintaining the sovereignty of our country, we are destroying our sons; by worshiping the State, which is but a projection of ourselves, we are sacrificing our children to our own gratification. Nationalism and sovereign governments are the causes and instruments of war

Freedom: People Do Not Give You Freedom ~ God Gives You Freedom


In the purest sense and ideal definition of the word, freedom comes from our Creator, not other

Freedom Is A Divine Gift For Everyone Everywhere.

people. People do not own people. People are born as Divine Creations in full freedom in mind, body and spirit.

Some people misuse their God-given freedom to oppress, suppress, abuse, threaten, rob others of their freedom, incarcerate people unjustly, in every way imaginable. Some people misuse their freedom and basically incarcerate themselves with addictions and poor life choices.

The balance and restoration of freedom comes in when those of us who can, bring freedom to each person, families, neighborhoods, states, countries, and the world at large. We, as a people or as an individual, do not give freedom. We restore freedom. When people, as individuals or as countries, cannot stand up for their God-given freedom themselves, we can stand up for them in integrity and justice, to restore their God-given freedom.

The point is, all people are born as free human beings in love as a Divine Creation, before they are taught to fear, accept oppression, accept bullying, succumb to other’s rule over themselves, no matter where they live on this Earth. It is incumbent upon all human beings alive on this planet at this time to bring this Earth back into balance by the restoration and practice of freedom. It is a matter of realigning our thoughts, words and actions with the truest sense of the meaning of freedom.

Jesus teaches freedom. The Buddha teaches freedom. Masters and Ascended Masters teach freedom. Why? Because God is freedom.

It is in freedom that we choose our own belief system, not the belief system dictated to us by any person, group or country.

It is in freedom that we live as the free human beings as the Author of All Life intended, with dignity for all genders, all races, all ethnicities, all creeds, all people everywhere without exception.

It is in freedom that we choose our political affiliation, without threat of voting rights and ramifications.

It is in freedom that we have a right to think they way we want to think, and live the way we live, and work, and play, and relax, and rejuvenate.

Freedom is freedom.

Any person, place, event, country or situation that does not exist in the full God-given freedom, is a challenge and opportunity for the rest of humanity to bring freedom to the forefront of life. The key to God-given freedom is operating in peace, love, understanding, forgiveness and empathy. This is the ideal, and an ideal that is not practiced in all countries. But it is a valid option. It all starts with a concept.

Practice freedom. Cherish freedom. Teach freedom, at home, in social/educational/civic/religious and political circles.

Love freedom.

THE DIGNITY OF THE HUMAN RACE


The dignity of the human race is universal. It knows no boundary to any country, or ocean, north pole or south pole, or equator. The human race in every country has equal amounts of dignity. The northern countries do not have more dignity than the countries south of the equator. There is not more dignity for the human race in the countries east of the prime meredian, than for the human race who happened to settle in the countries to the west of the prime meridian. There are no borders on dignity.

The dignity of the human race encompasses all nationalities, and favors none of them. All nationalities have the same measure of dignity, and no nationality is excluded from the human race allottment of it. Dignity of the human race circles tall human beings, short human beings; human beings with red, brown, black, blonde, grey, white and blue or streaked hair; human beings with freckles, moles, dimples, bumps and bruises, or any other stereotype human beings are catergorized in.

The dignity of the human race is blind to economic, or any other kind of status. Financially poor human beings of planet Earth have the exact same amount of dignity as human beings who find themselves richer in terms of financial wealth. Human beings who have more buttons, or beads, or animals, or cars, or flowers, or boxes, or shoes, or clothes, or vacations, or food, or houses, or boats, or motorcycles, or anything else they can think of, have just as much dignity as those who do not.

The dignity of the human race crosses gender. The entire human race, which includes all human beings, not just some human beings, have equal amounts of dignity, regardless of being male or female, or any kind of division they can imagine.

Dignity of human beings everywhere does not come from other human beings. There is nothing a human being can do to earn dignity, nor pretend not to have it. Dignity for all human beings is a Divine gift, freely given, without conditions or reservations, and above all, is beyond human judgement. Human beings are not in charge of who gets dignity and who does not. Human beings are not in control of the Divine Creator, who created all human beings, with dignity in equal measure.

Over the centuries, some human beings have fortified, bolstered, promoted, and taught the dignity of human beings across the entire planet; while other human beings have misused their egos, their insane egos, to attempt to squash, step on, undermine, eliminate, mask or rob the dignity of all human beings given them by their Creator.

The dignity of the human being is not in the hands of the human beings with the most power or fear tactics over certain groups of human beings, for example at work, socially, civically, environmentally, politically, or even in their own families. The dignity of the human being is in the hand of each individual human being. It is God given.

Illegal Immigrants ~ Really? You Would Be Surprised


The note on Woodie Guthrie’s guitar notes that his music kills fascist ideas, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.

Let’s see, who are really illegal immigrants in the USA? Who are the people we count as illegal aliens? Who counts as legal residents of the USA? How far back should we look, to the

Just over 250 years ago, most of the central and southwestern USA was Spanish/Mexican.

Native American Indians? Well, no, we should not go back that far because we would all be illegal aliens. Looking back at the history of the United States of America it is easy to see why the USA border with Mexico is such a hot spot. However, Mexicans were here before we were, and many of them never left. They still live on their original homestead. Some Americans think they are immigrants when in fact, they were here for generations before we got here.

Spanish/Mexican land greatly exceeds the land mass of the 13 colonies in 1763.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shall we count the Spanish/Mexican people who lived here in 1763, prior to all our wars with them? Shall we include those people in the land before we arrived in all the conquests and purchases? When you think of it this way, who are really the aliens?

There has got to be a better way for people of conscience, to resolve our current immigration dilemmas, that do not include a gun to someone’s back or face, and deportation to this

nations’ children who are in this land of “freedom” trying to make a better life for themselves and their families.We can be so short-sighted. For Americans living here now legally, it was not that long ago, not even 200 years ago, when our very own grandparents and their grandparents were immigrants to this country.The scarcity mentality has infiltrated the minds and greedy hearts of a few of those among us. We need to broaden our horizons and find creative solutions that do not include the destruction of human integrity, that place all non-American people in the same category as drug lords.We need to address crime issues, but often it is the illegal immigrant who is the victim of the crime, not the perpetrator.

 

 

 

Here are the words of “This Land Is Your Land,” by Woodie Guthrie:

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND

words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:

This land is your land, this land is my land

From California, to the New York Island

From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters

This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway

I saw above me an endless skyway

I saw below me a golden valley

This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I’ve roamed and rambled and I’ve followed my footsteps

To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts

And all around me a voice was sounding

This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The sun comes shining as I was strolling

The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling

The fog was lifting a voice come chanting

This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was walkin’ – I saw a sign there

And that sign said – no tress passin’

But on the other side …. it didn’t say nothin!

Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the squares of the city – In the shadow of the steeple

Near the relief office – I see my people

And some are grumblin’ and some are wonderin’

If this land’s still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

Do You Own Things Or Do Things Own You? Repost


change is goodPossessions are a 2 way street. We can own possessions, and they can own us. At first this is obvious. We have carefully and often painstakingly selected the things we have. We have chosen the things in our home, including our home, and things all around us, on purpose. These things serve a purpose, even if that purpose is to make us feel good by looking at the art of it, or feel good by being in and around these things. But when do things stop serving us, and we start serving things?

This is a good question to ask ourselves from time to time; because it is by the very nature of time that things begin to own us. It is almost as if our things begin to take a life of their own on, require cleaning or maintenance, and demand replenishing. Our things can even begin vying for our affection, and can consume our every thought, if we are not conscious of it. Things need protection. The more they shine, or grow in value, not only do we want them, so do others. Then we transform from taking care of our things, to safe guarding our things, which is an entirely different matter.

When we recognize that we are serving our things, more than they are serving us, we lose focus of what is really important in our lives. Why do we have the things we have? Do we want to keep up with the Jones’, peer pressure, or for appearances’ sake? Are we hoarders?

The remedy is simple. Like most problems of life, decision is the answer. Indecision is the complication. Decide to solve this problem, unless you like being a slave to your things.

Begin. Begin anywhere. Begin throwing away everything broken, or torn. Get a dumpster. If we didn’t wear it last year we won’t wear it this year. Give away everything that does not serve us. Donate to humanitarian causes to help the poor among us. Go through your things, again and again.

When we streamline our life, then things will not own us. Our homes will not own us. Debt will not own us.

Being debt free is freedom.

Being item free is freedom.

Being free is freedom.

When we are free, we can truly reassess what is important to us, without the clouded vision of false values.
