Food For Thought – NonViolence

In light of some recent events,

Battles of the body beget more bodies, battle of the mind beget division which leads to battles of the body, battles of the body….

—————————————————————————————————————

Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
Hate multiplies hate,
violence multiplies violence,
and toughness multiplies toughness
in a descending spiral of destruction….
The chain reaction of evil —
hate begetting hate,
wars producing more wars —
must be broken,
or we shall be plunged
into the dark abyss of annihilation.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Strength To Love, 1963

Nonviolence is the answer
to the crucial political and moral questions of our time:
the need for man to overcome oppression and violence
without resorting to oppression and violence.
Man must evolve for all human conflict
a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.
The foundation of such a method is love.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech,
Stockholm, Sweden, December 11, 1964

Illusion of choice
We live in very trying and testing times, everything seems very divided (this is a technique called divide and conquer) and many are uncertain about many things. You are either here or there left or right, “conspiracy nut” or sane, Democrat or Republican. This is called a “false dichotomy,” in which you are only given two choices (likely chosen for you), when there is the possibility of a third or more.I’ll let Peter Joseph do the rest of the talking.

Culture in Decline 9:24

“Those little people you elect into office each year, they have owners too, and don’t you forget it.”

I remind everyone who reads this of the principle of Microcosm and Macrocosm, so if you think people are being controlled on a smaller scale, imagine what it’s like for the “Controlling Elite” they are probably controlled on a scale you couldn’t even imagine, there is a commonality for you, a reconciliation. They bear the brunt of it as the figureheads but the ones who control them are far behind the scenes and for that I can empathize with them. I think some of them are really trying but you can’t imagine the pressure they must be under. It is a chain reaction, they can only be freed if the people under or above them free themselves, because of the pyramid (scale) power structure. So, I wouldn’t ostracize them for what “they” supposedly have done of their own accord. I sometimes can sense that some of them would like it to change but they don’t know how and they wouldn’t know how to break it to you even if they did.

To comment on the article above, I don’t think the world necessarily needs to be “good or bad,” If we make the world good, that’s just swinging from one side to the other and I truly believe “what goes up, must come down.”¬†And you can’t just go from one to the other, all that energy has to play out. It simply needs to have choice returned. The option to choose to be “good or bad.” Right now it is very regimented and restricted.
