The moment terrorists had entered into the offices of Charlie Hebdo, history was already unfolding before our eyes. Once the terrorists piloting the airliner had the twin towers in their sights, it was already too late. When it comes to understanding the true, metaphysical origins of terrorism, war, genocide and evil, it is too late to grasp the root cause after the blood has been spilled. We can never prevent abominable chaos from occurring in the first place by addressing the terror after it has already happened.
When catastrophe strikes, the sentence and decree of judgment has already been executed and now the entire tragedy with all of its implications lies in the domain of first responders, police, governments, hospitals, undertakers, the media, therapists, doctors, prescription meds and tranquilizers all of which are designed to help us cope with -- but not cure -- the pain and unspeakable suffering that has afflicted our world and our lives.
This particular domain of coping with horrific tragedy lies outside the scope of spiritual doctrine. Thankfully, there are plenty of caring and sharing people who come to the aid of others to help them through trauma and unspeakable suffering.
It's interesting to note that the course of human development and texuralized, codified spiritual movements took great evolutionary progress some 4000 years ago. Most spiritual paths have always addressed the root cause of any problem for the sole purpose of preventing it from happening to begin with the intent of curing. Not coping.
But the cure hurts.
And because it hurts so much, the organized religious establishment, to a large degree, throughout history, feared the promotion of advanced literacy and social progress.
THE STRUCTURE OF REALITY
There are two levels of reality:
Cause and Effect.
The so called "metaphysical" reality and physical reality.
The realm of pure consciousness and the world of matter and mechanics.
What ever happens in our physical world is always an effect and never the cause. The cause lies in the domain of human consciousness. Consciousness creates our reality.
This is how it works:
The human body is made up of both realities, the Cause and the Effect.
Consciousness (not intellect), or soul, is the major cause level.
The intellect, governed by the ego and the desires of the human body is the minor cause level, the realm of effect.
A human being's free will is to either listen to the urges of the body and ego, or to seek change and allow the will of our soul to shine through. This is a difficult task by design as the ego has been given full control over our true consciousness and it hides it, like a blackout curtain, so that only the ego is heard in our mind.
The ego has full control over the microphone, impelling us all day long with self-centered desires and bombarding every moment with self-centered thoughts, fears, jealousy, insecurity, anger and rage.
Unleashing the power of our soul is what life on earth is all about. Struggling to silence the ego and find our true consciousness is the very meaning of life. But our ego conceals this truth as well.
The world is set up the exact same way. Humanity is one unified body and soul.
The soul of humanity has but one single lofty purpose. Getting rid of the ego consciousness. Unleash the beauty of the soul. Give instead of take. share instead of receive. Impart instead of horde. Let go instead of hanging on. Be accountable, not a victim.
When individual people allow their own ego to rule over their soul, this is mirrored in the world. This is mirrored in our politics as well. It's why some nations seek to rule over other nations. Some religions seek to destabilize or eradicate other religious faiths. When our ego abuses our soul, then the manifestation of ego on these levels brings abuse to the rest of humankind.
When we allow our ego to damage our soul; then national, cultural and religious ideology will damage our world.
When religious ideology allows for selfishness, and the blind sightedness of ego to control it, then the only result is for the desire of destruction. Why is this? It's the need to control the other.
When the selfish intent of our ego manifests doctrinally, then negative militant, radicals seek to rule over the relatively peaceful majority.
So the worst of the worst wind up making all the headlines and bring darkness into our midst. Let's be clear about this: if ego manifests and manipulates itself under the guise of a religious organization, legal and political establishments are under the rule of the darkness; it's our fault. Everyone is at fault. Not just "their" fault.
This is a harsh truth.
So what can explain why many true inspirational spiritual leaders are also despised?
When a great terrorist act occurs, as far back as 2000 years ago, when Jerusalem was turned into bones and blood and the second temple was crushed, the spiritual council of Judaism, at that time laid the blame, not on the Romans, but on the Jews. The Romans were the effect. The current Dalai Lama said the same when the Chinese invaded Tibet and sacked Potola Palace in Lahsa; that human behavior and self-interest and egocentric envy and intolerance was the cause.
Let's put it into simpler terms.
Most great traditions say that our collective soul is actually the heart of the body of humanity. The fabrications of the mind are like the various organs of the body. When the heart fails to furnish the body with blood flow, there is a heart attack or stroke or gangrene. This is the cause of terrorism. Period.
Terrorism is a spiritual heart attack or stroke. Hatred and terrorist cells are gangrene and disease caused by blockages in the spiritual arteries by the bad fats, which is the ego. The ego is the fat that clogs our spiritual arteries causing disease.
There is a lack of Light-Flow (Spiritual blood-flow) because the heart, isn't not transforming and we humans aren't performing our role as spiritual beings, light givers to all the nations of the world.
This is caused by the lack of conscious insight in the most organized religions to reveal the soul. For example, if one takes the Bible literally, without understanding the metaphoric implications as a way to establish moral codes, then he is in the domain of the 1% body, the domain of ego and this is the lowest level of consciousness possible.
Consciousness of the soul means we question and probe beneath the literal scriptural texts and find sublime spiritual truths and insights that will unify all of mankind and bring forth genuine, metaphysical Light that will banish the darkness that dwells in the human heart. Only then will the purpose of the scriptural texts be revealed, which is to wage war on one's own ego, not on one's external enemy.
However, it takes work. If paradise and a peaceful planet were given to us as though it were a free lunch, we would be nothing but automatons, charity-cases, the recipients of a divine charitable hand-out. And that cannot possibly create a happy contented, free willed thinking human being. It just won't work. It's not our nature.
The truth in any form or situation isn't hidden from us, but you must seek it out, like an explorer. You must earn it by desiring to take the challenge. A process of self discovery.
THE TRUTH BEHIND DARKNESS
Being the very cause, creators and discoverers of truth, and seeking, the peace and the unending pleasure that we all desire is far better than just being a charitable recipient of a handout.
This is the greatest gift that was given to humankind; having the ability to create the very existence that we are destined to receive.
Think about it. Is there a better joy when we build a business from scratch and make a fortune? Is there anything more delightful and meaningful for a scientist than to discover something like the laws of physics instead of it being downloaded into our brain at birth? Is there anything more rewarding and thrilling than writing a best-selling novel that blows the minds of readers around the world? Or being the inventor of the computer, the wheel and the light bulb?
Succeeding by our own effort is the sweetest gift of all. And so it is with the truth of life because that truth, or a comprehensive understanding of human nature has the power to lead to the understanding of existence. Therefore it is the most difficult truth to find.
TWO WAYS TO UNITY
There is a lot of spectacular unity unfolding now in France, just as unity swept the United States for a few weeks after 9/11.
But then it left.
There were articles written just a few weeks later about the firefighters of New York were arguing and fighting with the police on a street corner in Manhattan. When 9/11 struck, there were no more Democrats or Republicans. Everyone was an American. Just like today, everyone is Charlie and everyone is a citizen of France.
A few short weeks after 9/11, self-interest returned to America and partisan politics returned, dividing this nation like never before in history.
There are two ways to taste the sweetness of unity:
1. Unspeakable horror shakes us to our bone and suddenly we feel a kinship with our fellow-man and unite. But it soon wears off.
2. Proactively eradicate the human ego, which is painful and scary, make no mistake, but then the result is the sweet taste of unity that we all experience during those precious moments after a disaster.
Why take the road of suffering to unity when we can get there proactively, without pain?
When we truly uproot the human ego, think beyond solely dedicating ourselves to making our happiness manifest, then we can help manifest other people's dreams come true. You know what happens then? This shift in human consciousness raises our consciousness and suddenly new inventions and innovations that can rid the world of famine, pollution, poverty, will be revealed into the physical world.
We accelerate progress exponentially. Instead of going from horse and buggy to train to car to airplane to 747 and then to rockets, we can skip all those stages and get to the perfected technology that will transform the world in every conceivable way possible.
So how do we arrive to this point? We get there through continuous suffering or we can get their through inner change.
So far, all the technological advances of humanity have come as a result of pain and suffering and war and death. What a stupid way to evolve.
If we just wage war on our own ego instead of our fellow-man, we can get to paradise and immortal existence in a virtual heartbeat.
But, the hard and harsh truth is this...A man would rather die physically, than have his ego die spiritually. It's the toughest war on earth to wage. But the victory offers the ultimate: a world of peaceful coexistence.
It's a war of life (positive change) and death (of ego).
If you want to contribute to the end of terrorism, war, poverty and disease, start fighting your own ego and treat the very people in your life -- friends, enemies, family, business associates -- with little less ego. Your impact on the world will be immeasurable.
The whole purpose of our existence is to infuse our consciousness with light, which allows us to win the day-to-day battles so that our personal lives and this world begin to undergo change.
Make no mistake, crime is down in the United States. New York, for instance has experienced a drastic drop in robberies and violent crimes that politicians are calling "extraordinary." According to the FBI, crime is down all over the US, not just one year, but its declining every single year.
The same thing is happening in the UK. According to the Guardian:
Crime is falling. Murder is down. Violent crime generally is down. Property crime is down. In fact, almost every category of criminality that you can think of is declining. Here is the even better news. This is not a blip. The downward trend is now very well established and can be traced back over many years. And here is the funniest bit of this news. No one is really sure why. Those who think of themselves as experts on the causes of crime confess to being nonplussed. The majority of them predicted that a prolonged economic squeeze could only lead to more crime. They are scratching their heads trying to figure out why the opposite is happening.
There is so much good news happening all around the world but the negative media only reports the bad news because the ego rules over our soul so the negative news rules over the good news.
Many of the most obscene and unspeakable acts of darkness, including molestation and human trafficking, are being brought to our attention as never before in history. But make no mistake, this is not a new phenomenon, it's just that these abominable activities have been kept in the darkness for millennia. It's now being brought to light and to our attention though the vehicle of mass media in marvelous, technological ways that haven't existed before. We have the opportunity to manifest real creative change.
The same way sunlight shining through the blinds reveals previously unseen dust particles floating in the shaft of sunlight, spiritual light or divine consciousness and awakened human consciousness can shine a harsh light on the negativity that manifests in our world.
We help all those social causes by changing ourselves. That is the front line of war.
Being the change you want to see in the world.
Of course, the negativity that we humans manifest in this world will keep the headlines filled with terrifying and frightening news, concealing all the good news that also happening in the world. And it will make us feel helpless as we discover more of the monstrosities that are taking place in the world. All of this is to numb us into inaction.
But now we know better.
Each of us becomes a candle in the world when we diminish our ego and self-interest and then more darkness is removed. And at the same time, we pour a light onto the problems that have remained hidden in the dark for centuries so that we can direct our consciousness to heal those issues as well.
Fighting darkness with darkness only creates more darkness.
Fighting darkness with light creates less darkness and more light.
The choice is ours.
It always has been.
