Religions and religious practices in societies have evolved over many life times. When religious practice is focused on worship and not on having reverence for that which is created we have individuals that loose their relationship with life itself.
When an individual put their focus on dogmatic practices they are a slave to their conditioned mind and they few life from a narrow minded and short sighted perspective. Their religious practice follows man’s laws and not Divine Law or Gods law. “Love your neighbor”. What has become apparent with dogmatic practice on is steadfast on their belief. Their actions are such that they suggest, “I will love my neighbor when my neighbor follows my religious practices”. “I will love my neighbor only if his skin is the same color as mine”.
When an individual is expressing prejudice towards the beliefs of others they are actually blind to their own violent nature.
Humanity is mostly under social hypnosis, it is seen when individuals follow a set belief structure. The thing is beliefs exist only in the mind as a thought form. When one says “I believe”, they are actually saying “this is what I have accepted as truth it is not yet my knowing”. When one says, “I know”, it leaves no doubt as knowing comes from direct experience. Yet your knowing is not always the full truth for that which your mind experiences is influenced from past programming The mind can only perceive that which it is willing to accept.
The ignorance of the mind is seen when the individual ignores the evidence and not willing to see the truth as a result of deeply held beliefs.
We must end bigotry and intolerance and distill out of the human psyche the propensity for violence as seen in how we view and treat each other and our land if we are to save our world and each other from our inherited destructive behavior.
A society that looks at behavioral issues as needing justice is a society that is perpetuating violence. Justice creates violence! Anger perpetuates violence. Fear perpetuates violence. It is in being conscious and conscience to the ones that have behavioral issues as needing love the most. The love I speak of is a love not known by many they are held to the conditioned state of judgment.
The love from which life is born is without condition. This means it is in full understanding of one’s behavior and sees what is driving the actions of individuals and nations. To say humans need Divine Justice is a contradiction of Unconditional Love. Justice perpetuates violence. “An eye for an eye”, perpetuates violence.
Looking at the actions of self and others without a full understanding of the trained response creates ignorance and perpetuates violence. When court systems and those that work in the system are trained in understanding human behavior and seeing beneath the behavior is an abused child one that had his/her innocence stripped away at no fault of theirs will open doors of understanding and empathy will follow. It is a vicious cycle of unconsciousness to only look at the behavior without looking at the underlining situation driving the moment.
When the church and the court system no longer has a mandate of punishment but that of restitution there will be peace in the nation and the world.
Restitution does not perpetuate violence. Restitution does not mean “an eye for an eye”. For this will never restore the heart back to its innocence. When the heart is restored the brain will be restored and rewired to its innate state of empathy.
Restitution for both victims. Restitution is also for the one perpetrating the behavior and the one on the receiving end is:
1. The act of restoring to the rightful owner something that has been taken away, lost, or surrendered.
2. The act of making good or compensating for loss, damage, or injury; indemnification.
3. A return to or restoration of a previous state or position.
When an individual has the capacity to see that a person’s actions are driven by past programming, past pain and suffering, they will know compassion and true love will follow.
They have lost their will and their actions are driven by their imbalanced brain and conditioned mind.
Emotional immaturity is seen when anger blinds one to the harm there actions are doing and this anger is passed on to another when they do not have the eyes and ears aligned with a soulful heart. Justice is not compassion and only perpetrates more violence. It is imperative to remove all systems that perpetuate justice by restoring the justice system to the judicial system.
In some African tribe, when someone does something wrong, they take the person to the center of the village where the tribe surrounds him and for 2 days say all the good he has done. The tribe believes each person is good but sometimes people make mistakes, which are really a cry for help. They do this to reconnect him with his good nature.
Just say no to violence see all children, as a child of your God for all are indeed ONE! There is only one creative life force which is called God which has many names. “When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system: he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind” J. Krishnamurti
