Israelis and Palestinians

It is unfortunate that Israelis and Palestinians can't find their way to peace.

Both Israelis and Palestinians have the same ancestry - Abraham, and yet now, they are fighting and killing each other. They forgot that they were once brothers.

I pray that they find peace between them. I pray that the United States stand on a more neutral side helping both Israelis and Palestinians to find their peace. I believe that the 'terrorists' problem arise in part because of the mistreatment of the Palestinians by the Israelis, and the United States often stand by Israelis.

The Israelis have a long history of oppression, and perhaps, that is why the United States stand by them, feeling sorry for them because of the Holocaust situation.

But the United States should step back and play neutral. It may stem the tide of the 'terrorists' attacks. Not because we are afraid, but because it is a better choice, just like a father doesn't take sides when his children are fighting. He helps them find peace.

Manifest Your Spirituality in the Physical World

This blog site is developing behavioral problems. Even after several times entering correct User ID and password, it still doesn't let me in. So, let me get my main message across to you, in case, I can't get back in.

Many people ridicule George Bush ... he uses a lot of reference to God. I don't know how George Bush receives his message from God, but it takes a lot of courage to reveal this to the public. I will share with you some of my experience. In fact, I was hoping this site will be a site where we can share experience such as this. Each of us is like a sensor, able to sense certain things, but unable to sense other things, and if we combine our senses, we can see a bigger picture of what we are seeing. Instead of arguing who is right and who is wrong, we just combine our effort, and each of us gain from each other's experience. Internet technology gives us this potential.

Some of you have not experienced God personally. Some of you have been taught to worship God. Now, I ask you to be 'Christ/God - like' in your way. That is a big jump, I admit. But this is the message I have come to tell you. This is the time. You hear the urging from God Himself in these passages.

And what is 'Christ/God - like'? It's unconditional love. From that base, you make your decision. Although the world seems to be in chaos, I do see signs of it emerging.

I use the Taras as examples. Taras are Buddha of Compassion, expression their compassion in different ways.

You can be like White Taras, taking good care of yourself and sharing your wealth with others.

You can be like Green Taras, putting the needs of others before you, serving society.

You can be like Avalokiteshvara, teaching and reminding people to be compassionate toward one another.

There are many ways to express yourself.

But above all, envision the Highest Version of Who You Are and express it.

Warren Buffet donates to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Bill Gates, the richest man in the world, has announced that he will be investing full time to his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations that address health, education, and poverty issues.

And now, Warren Buffet, the second richest man in the world, has pledged to donate 80% of his asset to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

These people know how to make money. They are secured. They are giving back to society. Wow, doesn't news like that inspire you? I hope Warren Buffet provide the example for other people to follow.

Communism and Religion

I have always thought that communism springs from Karl Marx theory, an economic theory, which advocates for resource sharing, as opposed to the capitalistic theory, which advocates for market forces deciding.

The implementation of communism requires big government. Big government is not necessarily bad. Big government that choose to serve people, work in partnership with business can be a good thing. It's the corruption in government that brings about trouble. But that corruption can exists in communist society as well as capitalistic society, or even a monotheistic society.

When a person sits on top of that big chunk of money - ie. from tax collections, it is very tempting to dip his/her hand into it, hoping nobody will notice that it is missing. It happens in governments, it happens is businesses, it happens when you find money on the street that doesn't belong to you.

Now why did the United States fight Communism? Is it because it is against Communism in principle? or in its implementation, those countries who choose to practice Communism are generally anti-religion. According to a recent analysis that I heard from NPR, it is for the latter reason. Are there any country that are religious and practice communism as well, I wonder? Are religion and communism mutually exclusive? It doesn't seem to be. In fact, it can be very compatible. But again, ideals sounds good, but it is in the implementation that we hit a snag.

We've seen the collapse of communism in Russia. Are we on solid ground in our capitalistic model? I would say that this capitalistic model has created such an imbalance, a large gap between rich and poor, that it too, is at risk of collapsing. It creates a lot of unhappy people, and some of these unhappy people can choose violence to get their message across.

We have to get creative and create a better model.

God explains ...

The incentive to succeed, to make the most of one's life, should not be economic or materialistic reward. It is misplaced there. This misplaced priority is what has created all of the problems we have discussed here.

When the incentive for greatness is not economic - when economic security and basic materialistic needs are guaranteed to all - then incentive will not disappear, but be of a different sort, increasing in strength and determination, producing true greatness, not the kind of transparent, transient 'greatness' which present incentives produce.

'Living a better life' is a proper incentive. Create a 'better life' for your children is a good incentive. But the question is, what makes a 'better life'?

How do you define 'better'? How do you define 'life'?

If you define 'better' as bigger, better, more money, power, sex, and stuff (houses, cars, clothes, CD collections - whatever) ... and if you define 'life' as the period elapsing between birth and death in your present existence, then you're doing nothing to get out of the trap that has created your planet's predicament.

Yet if you define 'better' as a larger experience and a greater expression of your grandest State of Being, and 'life' as an eternal, ongoing, never-ending process of Being, you may yet find your way.

A 'better life' is not created by the accumulation of things. Most of you know this, all of you say you understand it, yet your lives - and the decisions you make which drive your lives - have as much to do with 'things' as anything else, and usually more.

You strive for things, you work for things, and when you get some of the things you want, you never let them go.

The incentive of most of humankind is to achieve, acquire, obtain things. Those who do not care about things let them go easily.

Because your present incentive for greatness has to do with accumulation of all the world has to offer, all of the world is in various stages of struggle. Enormous portions of the population are still struggling for simple physical survival. Each day is filled with anxious moments, desperate measures. The mind is concerned with basic, vital questions. Will there be enough food? Is shelter available? Will we be warm? Enormous numbers of people are still concerned with these matters daily. Thousands die each month for the lack of food alone.

Smaller numbers of people are able to reasonably rely on the basic survival appearing in their lives, but struggle to provide something more - a modicum of security, a modest but decent home, a better tomorrow. They work hard, they fret about how and whether they'll ever 'get ahead'. The mind is concerned with urgent, worrisome questions.

By far the smallest number of people have all they could ever ask for - indeed, everything the other two groups are asking for - but, interestingly, many in this last group are still asking for more.

Their minds are concerned with holding on to all that they have acquired and increasing their holdings.

Now, in addition to these three groups, there is the fourth. It is the smallest group of all. In fact, it is tiny.

This group has detached itself for the need for material things. It is concerned with spiritual truth, spiritual reality, and spiritual experience.

The people in this group see life as a spiritual encounter - a journey of the soul. They respond to all human events within that context. They hold all human experience within that paradigm. Their struggle has to do with the search for God, the fulfillment of the Self, the expression of truth.

As they evolve, this struggle becomes not a struggle at all, but a process. It is a process of Self-definition (not self-discovery), of Growth (not learning), of Being (not doing).

The reason for seeking, striving, searching, stretching, and succeeding becomes completely different. The reason for doing anything is changed, and with it, the doer is likewise changed. The reason becomes the process, and the doer becomes the be-er.

Whereas, before, the reason for reaching, for striving, for working hard all of one's life was to provide worldly things, now the reason is to experience heavenly things.

Whereas, before, the concerns were largely the concerns of the body, now the concerns are largely the concerns of the soul.

Everything has moved, everything has shifted. The purpose of life has changed, and so has life itself.

The 'incentive for greatness' has shifted, and with it the need for coveting, acquiring, protecting, and increasing worldly possessions has disappeared.

Greatness will no longer be measured by how much one has accumulated. The world's resources will rightly be seen as belonging to all the world's people. In a world blessed with sufficient abundance to meet the basic needs of all, the basic needs of all will be met.

Everyone will want it that way. There will no longer be a need to subject anyone to an involuntary tax. You will all volunteer to send 10% of your harvest and your abundance to programs supporting those whose harvest is less. It will no longer be possible for thousands to stand by watching thousands of others starve - not for lack of food, but for lack of sufficient human will to create a simple political mechanism by which people can get the food.

Such moral obscenities - now commonplace among your primitive society - will be erased forever the day you change your incentive for greatness and your definition of it.

Your new incentive: to become what I created you to be - the physical out-picturing of Deity itself.

When you choose to be Who You Really Are - God made manifest - you will never again act in an ungodly manner.

I expected there would be an increase in surveillance after 9/11.

Individuals seeking to do us harm successfully got on our shore, successfully planned and executed its plan. How did we miss it? We didn't pay attention.

I expected more vigilance after 9/11. It's understandable that they go after bank and communication records to see how they have missed it, and use it to prevent future attacks.

What I didn't expect was a declaration of war on Iraq. A group of individuals started this, and we invaded a country.

While I understand the increase in surveillance, I hope they don't abuse the power they have.

Even though the past has been a dark place, I continue to hope the future will be a much brighter place.

As you see these horrible events around you, I hope there is something within you that is clicked. Next to it, you find out that this is not Who You Are. And with that, you start to remember Who You Are. This is what I hope. Disasters can have a great transformative power.

Once you remember Who You Are, looking at these events can be even harder for you. But it can also be a force within you to change things around you for the better for mankind. This is what I hope.

After all, one of the purpose of this site is to help bring the Christ/God within you to come out and help mankind in this hour of need.

A Discussion with a Pro-War Activist

This discussion serves to increase our understanding.

Each person makes his/her choice based on his/her world view perspective. The following is a perspective from one pro-war activist.

On Osama bin Laden
He thinks that Osama bin Laden may takes after Mohammed. Mohammed was a warrior and prophet. He was one man, but he inspired many to take arms and conquered many territories. The problem with Osama bin Laden is he wants to take on the whole world.

Iraq is not Vietnam
He lived under the Communist regime and he hated the Communist. However, he conceded that the Vietnam war was a mistake. America get screwed when they listened to the French. America should not get involved. Vietnamese may kill many during the Vietnam War, but they don't broadcast to the world. They don't do beheadings and show them to the world.

Why we don't talk to Mullar Omar
He asked if I have seen Mullar Omar shot a woman in the head for watching a sport event and broadcast this to the world? He can still remember her brain matter splatter out on his TV screen. No, we don't talk to people like that.

His country 'lost' because of the same tactics
The 'enemy' hides in the crowd, and we don't shoot at crowd, and the 'enemy' escapes.

What are his suggestions?
The 'enemy' doesn't play by the rules, and if we play by the rules, we lose. Sometimes, we have to break rules to play at their level so they understand.

Here is a thinking from one person. But it may shed a light into why the administration is doing what it is doing. While I don't advocate this is the way forward, but you can certainly understand this way of thinking.

Friday, June 16, 2006


It is unfortunate that Bush sees Iraq as part of the 'War on Terror' and insist on fighting.

Many people says that Iraq is not Vietnam, but I do see some similarities.

America's reason for entering Vietnam was 'War on Communism'.
America's reason for entering Iraq was 'War on Terror'.
(The reason for this Iraq War, however, keeps shifting.)

When America entered, Vietnamese has to choose on which side they side with.
Iraqis, probably also has to choose ... with America or with the insurgents.

Vietnamese just want to live on their land, without having to choose.
Iraqis probably also just want to live on their land, without having to choose.

The Vietcong initially used inspiration to recruit, and later resorted to terror to recruit. If you are with America, they'll kill you.
The South Vietnamese also use threats ... if you are with the Communists, they'll kill you.
And outside, the bombs from the Americans.
It's your own country, and you are afraid to walk out. You are afraid to talk. Everyone is a potential threat to you ... even someone who seems to be your friend ... he/she maybe a spy for the other side. Fear is the predominant emotion. There are times when you are getting tired of your own fear, and would rather risk death than living in fear like this. And it is ironic ... once you lose the fear of death, that is when you feel liberated. You can kill me, but you can't intimidate me. That is easy for me to say. I have no family. But if you have a family, you fear not only for yourself, you fear for your spouse, you fear for your children.

It seems the same pattern repeats here. That is why you see Iraqis are targeted as well, not just Americans. Just replace 'Communists' with 'Terrorists'. It seems they read the North Vietnamese tactics - how a small country defeat a powerful country. Different weapons of war, but similar psychological tactics.

Well, you know what happen when America left and what happen to those Vietnamese who have sided with America. Re-education Camp, where horror stories abound.
I don't know what the end of the story in Iraq is.

Yet, look at Vietnam now. I've heard many positive stories from people who came back there to visit. The younger people no longer have the kind of hatred that the older generation have. Thank God.

Well, I came from a world where that kind of chaos and disorder occurred, and it's not fun. I do not wish it to be for the Iraqis. Yet Iraqis must face it because America chose Iraq as the base to fight the 'War on Terror' just as Vietnamese had to face it because America chose Vietnam as one of the base to fight the 'War on Communism'. Is America really helping by being there? Is this a good way to fight the 'war on terror'? What is the 'war on terror'? Aren't we causing the terror as well by coming in there with guns and planes?

One World Government

God explains ...

I am speaking of a world in which two things are guaranteed:
1. The meeting of basic needs.
2. The opportunity to go higher.

With all your world's resources, with all your abundance, you have not yet managed those two simple things. Instead, you have trapped millions on the lowest end of the socioeconomic scale and devised a world view that systematically keeps them there. You are allowing thousands to die each year for lack of simple basics.

For all the world's magnificence, you have not found a way to be magnificent enough to stop people from starving to death, much less stop killing each other. You actually let children starve to death right in front of you. You actually kill people because they disagree with you.

You are primitive.

The first mark of a primitive society is that it thinks itself advanced. The first mark of a primitive consciousness is that it thinks itself enlightened.

This can be achieved through two shifts, two changes - one in your political paradigm, one in your spiritual.

The movement to a unified world government would include a greatly empowered world court to resoved international disputes and a peacekeeping force to give power to the laws by which you choose to govern yourself.

The world government would include a Congress of Nations - two representatives from every nation on Earth - and a People's Assembly - with representation in direct proportion to a nation's population.

Yes. Your U.S. Constitution was God inspired.

The same balance of powers should be built into the new world constitution.

There would be, likewise, an executive branch, legislative branch, and a judicial branch.

Each nation would keep its internal peacekeeping police, but all national armies would be disbanded - exactly as each of your individual states disbanded their armies and navies in favor of a federal peacekeeping force serving the entire group of states you now call a nation.

Nations would reserve the right to form and call up their own militia on a moment's notice, just as your states each have the constitutional right to keep and activate a state militia.

And - just as your states do now - each of the 160 Nation States in the union would have the right to secede from the union based upon a vote of the people (though why it would want to do so is beyond Me, given that its people would be more secure and more abudant than ever before).

A unified world federation would produce ...
1. An end to wars between nations and the settling of disputes by killing.
2. An end to abject poverty, death by starvation, and mass exploitation of people and resources by those of power.
3. An end to systematic environmental destruction of the Earth.
4. An escape from the endless struggle for bigger, better, more.
5. An opportunity - truly equal - for all people to rise to the highest expression of Self.
6. And end to all limitations and discriminations holding people back - whether in housing, in the workplace, or in the political system, or in personal sexual relationships.

It would require nothing. It would produce, voluntarily and quite automatically, a redistribution of resources.
All people would be offered a proper education, for instance. All people would be offered open opportunity to use that education in the workplace - to follow careers which bring them joy.
All people would be guaranteed access to health care whenever and however needed.
All people would be guaranteed they won't starve to death or have to live without sufficient clothing or adequate shelter.
All people would be granted the basic dignities of life so that survival would never again be the issue, so that simple comforts and basic dignities were provided to all human beings.

Your thought that these things need to be earned is the basis for your thought that you have to earn your way to heaven. Yet you cannot earn your way to God's good graces, and you do not have to, because you are already there. This is something you cannot accept, because it is something you cannot give. When you learn to give unconditionally (which is to say, love unconditionally), then you will learn to receive unconditionally.

This life was created as a vehible through which you might be allowed to experience that.

Try to wrap yourself around this thought: People have a right to basic survival. Even if they do nothing. Even if they contribute nothing. Survival with dignity is one of the basic rights of life. I have given you enough resources to to guarantee that to everyone. All you have to do is to share.

Suicide at Guantanamo Bay

There has been an increasing attempts of suicide at Guantanamo Bay. Many were averted, but three has been successful.

Are you surprised at this? We are holding people without charge indefinitely. Imagine yourself in that situation. How would you feel?

It's unbelievable that some people would say this is a tactic. Can't you see what they are telling us - the condition is so bad that death is preferred. These people should be tried as quickly as possible, so they can move on with their life - one way or another.

And if they harbor anger against us because we have hold them unjustly, well, we have to face the consequence of our poor decision ... well, George Bush's actually.

Iraq Prime Minister wants US troops out

Iraq Prime Minister expressed his desire for US troops to move out within 18 months. President Bush is hesitant about this.

I've seen many polls asking questions about - Should the US troops stay in Iraq and fight or cut and run? What kind of a question is that? Let me rephrase the question for you - Should US troops do the fighting for Iraq or should Iraqis do the fighting for themselves?

I don't want another Vietnam to happen. What the Vietnamese wanted was the US to remain in the background, play an advisory role, and support them, and allow them to do the main fighting. Sure, perhaps they are not as good as Americans as fighters, and casualty will occur, but when they fight for their own country, they have a sense of pride within them. With Americans in the front, and often treat them as third rate citizens, they lost that sense of pride, along with development of resentment within them, which they are too afraid to speak out. It was a dysfunctional team.

I hope that does not happen in Iraq. Americans should think about moving into the background, and let the Iraqis do the fighting for themselves. Our presence there can irritate the insurgents and give them reasons to attack. Do not think of it as cut and run, think of it as changing tactics. Sure they can say a lot of things that anger us - don't let it. We can say we'll help them rebuild their country, but there need to be peace. They need to learn to make peace with their neigbors. Stay as neutral as you can.

With the death of Zarqawi, they might do many insane things. Rather than fight back at them, just show up the mirror, so they can see themselves. In the meantime, we should spend our energy doing positive and constructive things.

America might do a lot of bad things in the past, but it can change. Change is something America is very good at. It is a young nation, yet it surpassed just about every other nations. Now, it gets into a bit of trouble. Why? It might be because it thinks it is a powerful country, and it can do anything, and if not careful, it can abuse its power.

That is the challenge for America. Will it get stuck in its old ways of thinking, or it can change. Be the example. We can change.

When followers are told that Americans do all these bad things, and now they see us do all these positive things, they will start to have some doubt within themselves. Are their elders see things as they are or do they have some long grudge within them?

We can be the force for positive transformation.

Al Zarqawi's Death

I find myself feeling sad as I heard news of the death of Al Zarqawi's death, just as I feel sad as I heard news of the death of Saddam's two sons. From what I have read, they have created horrors in many people's life.

All babies are born innocent, and somehow, through their life circumstances, they are led down the path where they decide violence is the path for them to achieve what they want.

George Bush proclaimed this is a success. Is it? Is killing a target a success for him? He knows the insurgents will fight back. The insurgents are not afraid of death. It seems their tactics are to blow themselves up, among other tactics. To them, Americans are occupiers. You cannot have troops on a foreign land and say you are not an occupier. You are. That is why he speaks of a long war. How long do you intend to stay on a foreign land and keep on killing? What is the difference between your killings and their killings? How come your killings are just and their killings are unjust? Is killing the method of resolution for conflict?

Al Gore decides not to run

As I go around and ask people to see the 'Inconvenient Truth' movie, I am surprised to find that there are many anger within people.

Some are upset because Al Gore didn't even win his own state, and therefore doesn't even speak highly of him.

Some doesn't want to go because that would put money in Al Gore's pocket and they don't want to do that.

Some said that because he said he invented the Internet, and that's a lie, so anything that he says shouldn't be trusted.

Some said that he was the vice president and he couldn't push the issue ... in a way, they think he would be ineffective.

Some said he speaks in a condescending way, and they don't like it.

Some said the data can be manipulated. If he wants to convince the public that there is the issue of 'global warming', he would select the data that would support that data.

Some said that Congress are basically 'pigs in the same trough'. Both Democrats and Republicans are bad. There should be another revolution, they said. These people no longer cares for the little people, they said.

As far as Obama is concerned, he did make a good impression on them, but then they said, they don't think America is ready for a black president nor a woman president.

Oh well, maybe it's good that Al Gore decides not to run. The field is hostile out there. I thought the issue of 'global warming' would be good, because it would make nations think about something that is bigger than them. And after they work together on an issue of common interest, they look at each other and see how silly they have fought with one another.

Obama would be a great president too

As I think about possible presidential candidate that might undo George Bush's mess, Obama would be a good candidate too. The way that he talked can really bring people together, and that is what we need.

We really need a good leader to heal this country's divisiveness and improve the image of this country.

Christian Blind Mission International

Christian Blind Mission International dedicate itself to serving the poor and those with disabilities. For only $35, you can help someone from blindness. Also, they are also asking for prayers. See if you can help them. I include the link on the side. If you do decide to help, I would like to know.

Too often, we hear how much people make, and this can create envy and competition in people. Let's emphasize on the giving aspect. After all, life is about giving. Anyway, it's one of God's ideas.

If the giving aspect is emphasized, not only do we recognize the giver but we also encourage this activity. Wouldn't it be nice if people compete on who is giving more? Too often, we emphasize on the negative.

I know, Americans like their privacy, and God thinks transparency would be better After all, don't we tend to behave better when we think He sees everything, and there is nothing we can hide from Him. This is His logic.

Of course, the choice is yours.

An Inconvenient Truth

If you have not seen Al Gore's film - 'An Inconvenient Truth', you should.

He explains Global Warming that is pretty much undeniable. You can visit the website for more information on what you can do to help alleviate the problem.

I admire his dedication for spreading the word.

Wouldn't it be nice to have him as a president next term so he can refocus the issue on global warming? That would be problem that the world can work on, and maybe the 'terrorist' problem goes away.

Of course, we have to help him on pressing the Congress on this issue.

An Invitation/Challenge to my Readers/Visitors

We have been talking about Group Consciousness. For those who visit this website frequently, you probably have the 'Christ/Love' Consciousness, that you want to be loving toward one another, and you want to create a better world which serves everyone.

I include many passages from 'God', not only because I believe it might help some of you out there living in this troubled world, but also to say that He is a part of us and His ideas are welcome in this group. We are living in the world that constantly say - separation of the Church and State, well, I don't know about the Church because I don't go to Church, but God is a part of me, and I cannot separate Him from me.

All of these passages serve as the first stage - to make you think ... and hopefully move you toward 'Love' Consciousness. The next stage - Word. To declare yourself. Do you have that courage? Can you declare that you are 'Love'? Do you remember God said the power of the word 'I am ...'? Can you do this? Once we have a group of similar consciousness, I hope we can move to the next phase ... Action and Manifestation.

E-mail me at and I will include you in this group. In this way, you can share your ideas, your views, your stories, your inspiration ... and make this web site more dynamic and interesting. And together, we can think up of something to improve this world.

The Hitler Experience

God explains ...

The Hitler Experience was made possible as a result of group consciousness. Many people want to say that Hitler manipulated a group - in this case, his countrymen - through the cunning and the mastery of his rhetoric. But this conveniently lays all the blame at Hitler's feet - which is exactly where the mass of the people want it.

But Hitler could do nothing without the cooperation and support and willing submission of millions of people. The subgroup which called itself Germans must assume enormous burden of responsibility for the Holocaust. As must, to some degree, the larger group called Humans, which, if it did nothing else, allowed itself to remain indifferent and apathetic to the suffering in Germany until it reached so massive a scale that even the most cold-hearted isolationists could no longer ignore it.

You see, it was collective consciousness which provided fertile soil for growth of the Nazi movement. Hitler seized the moment, he did not create it.

It's important to understand the lesson here. A group consciousness which speaks constantly of separation and superiority produces loss of compassion on a massive scale, and loss of compassion is inevitable followed by loss of conscience.

A collective concept rooted in strict nationalism ignores the plight of others, yet makes everyone else responsible for yours, thus justify retaliation, rectification, and war.

Auschwitz was the Nazi solution to - an attempt to rectify - the 'Jewish' problem.

The horror of the Hitler Experience was not that he perpetrated it on the human race, but that the human race allowed him to. The astonishment is not only a Hitler came along, but also that so many others went along.

The shame is not only that Hitler killed millions of Jews, but also that millions of Jews had to be killed before Hitler was stopped.

The purpose of the Hitler experience was to show humanity to itself.

Throughout history, you have had remarkable teachers, each presenting extraordinary opportunities to remember Who You Really Are. These teachers have shown you the highest and the lowest of human potential.

The have presented vivid, breathtaking examples of what it can mean to be human - of where one can go with the experience, of where the lot of you can and will go, given your consciousness.

The thing to remember: Consciousness is everything, and creates your experience. Group consciousness is powerful and produces outcomes of unspeakable beauty or ugliness. The choice is always yours.

If you are not satisfied with the consciousness of your group, seek to change it.

The best way to change the consciousness of others is by your example.

If your example is not enough, form your own group - you be the source of the consciousness you wish others to experience. They will - when you do.

It begins with you. Everything. All things.

You want the world to change? Change things in your own world.

Hitler gave you a golden opportunity to do that. The Hitler Experience - like the Christ Experience - is profound in its implications and the truths it revealed to you and about you. Yet those larger awareness live - in the case of Hitler and Buddha, Genghis Kahn or Hare Krishna, Attila the Hun or Jesus the Christ - only so long as your memories of them live.

That is why the Jews build monuments to the Holocaust and ask you never to forget it. For there is a little bit of Hitler in all of you - and it is only a matter of degree. Wiping out a people is wiping out a people, whether at Auschwitz or Wounded Knee.

Hitler was not sent to you. Hitler was created by you. He arose out of your Collective Consciousness, and could not have existed without it. That is the lesson.

The consciousness of separation, segregation, superiority - of 'we' versus 'they', of 'us' and 'them' - is what created the Hitler Experience.

The consciousness of Divine Brotherhood, of unity, of Oneness, of 'ours' rather than 'yours/mine' is what creates the Christ Experience.

When the pain is 'ours', not just 'yours', when the joy is 'ours', not just 'mine', when the whole life experience is Ours, then it is at last truly that - A Whole Life experience.

Group Consciousness

God explains ...

Group consciousness is something that is not widely understood - yet it is extremely powerful and can, if you are not careful, often overcome individual consciousness. You must always, therefore, endeavor to create group consciousness whenever you go, and with whatever you do, if you wish your larger life experience on the planet to be harmonious.

If you are in a group whose consciousness does not reflect your own, and you are unable at this time to effectively alter the group consciousness, it is wise to leave the group, or the group could lead you. It will go where it wants to go, regardless of where you want to go.

If you cannot find a group whose consciousness matches your own, be the source of one. Others of like consciousness will be drawn to you.

Individuals and smaller groups must affect larger groups - and, ultimately, the largest group of all, which is ALL humankind - for there to be permanent and significant change on your planet.

Your world, and the condition it is in, is a reflection of the total, combined consciousness and everyone living there.

As you can see by looking around you, much work is left to be done. Unless of course, you are satisfied with your world as it is.

Surprising, most people are. That is why the world does not change.

Most people are satisfied with a world in which differences, not similarities, are honored, and disagreements are settled by conflict and war.

Most people are satisfied with a world in which survival is for the fittest, 'might is right', competition is required, and winning is called the highest good.

If such a system happens also to produce 'losers' - so be it - so long as you are not among them.

Most people are satisfied, even though such a model produces people who are often killed when they are judged 'wrong', starved and rendered homeless when they are 'losers', oppressed and exploited when they are not 'strong'.

Most people define 'wrong' as that which is different from them. Religious differences, in particular, are not tolerated, nor are many social, economic, or cultural differences.

Exploitation of the underclass is justified by the self-congratulatory pronouncements from the upper class of how much better off their victims are now than they were before these exploitations. By this measure, the upper class can ignore the issue of how all people ought to be treated if one were truly fair, rather than merely making a horrible situation a tiny bit better - and profiting obscenely in the bargain.

Most people laugh when one suggest any kind of system other than the one currently in place, saying that behaviors such as competing and killing and the 'victor taking the spoils' are what makes their civilization great! Most people even think there is no other natural way to be, that it is the nature of humans to behave in this manner, and that to act any other way would kill the inner spirit that drives man to succeed. (No one asks the question, 'Succeed at what?')

Difficult as it is for truly enlightened beings to understand, most people on your planet believe in this philosophy, and that is why most people don't care about the suffering masses, the oppression of minorities, the anger of the underclass, or the survival needs of anyone but themselves and their immediate families.

Most people do not see that they are destroying the EArth - the very planet which gives them Life - because their actions seek only to enhance their quality of life. Amazingly, they are not farsighted enough to observe that short-term gains can produce long-term losses, and often do - and will.

Most people are threatened by group consciousness, a concept such as the collective good, a one-world overview, or a God who exists in unity with all creation, rather than separate from it.

This fear of anything leading to unification and your planet's glorification of All That Separates produce division, disharmony, discord - yet you do not seem to have the ability to even learn from your own experience, and so you continue your behaviors, with the same results.

The inability to experience the suffering of another as one's own is what allows such suffering to continue.

Seperation breeds indifference, false superiority. Unity produces compassion, genuine equality.

The events which occur on your planet - which have occurred regularly for 3000 years - are, as I've said, a reflection of the Collective Consciousness of 'your group' - the whole group on your planet.

That level of consciousness could best be described as primitive.

Gay Marriage Ban

George Bush's reason for banning gay marriage is amazing ... that union between man and woman create stability for society. Has George Bush look at the statistics?

If George Bush enjoys his marriage, why would he deny others to have this experience? It reveals his intolerance, just as his intolerance for other issues. It's this kind of intolerance that leads us into trouble.

George Bush actually teaches me a lot. He challenges me. I didn't know I can get this angry until George Bush came along. And when I calm myself down, he would say or do something that challenges me again. Thank you, George Bush.

George Bush should focus his energy on important issues, such as creating peace for the country and the world, by acting in a peaceful manner, and not threatening the world with endless wars if other countries don't do what he wishes. George Bush should focus his energy on seeing that Americans basic needs are met. There are many homeless people in this country. Anyway, that is what good leaders do. They care for the people. George Bush can be a great leader if he choose to. He has that potential.

US agree to talk with Iran with conditions

When asked what mistakes George Bush have made, he said that he has used tough language, the 'cowboy' talk ... I thought there would be some hope.

But here, I see US impose conditions on Iran before talk, and what they want - that Iran stop their nuclear enrichment program, and this is right after Iran declared that it is their sovereign right to do so. What kind of talk is that? With conditions, with threats? It's insincere. It's dead on arrival.

I hope other countries are mature enough to see things through, and they have been doing that. The United States is like a child with a temper tantrum.

The United States is used to have power and it is losing power. Forceful tones like that doesn't help. By power, I mean respect ... not military might.

Haditha mishaps

By now, you probably have heard about Haditha mishaps. Many people want to punish these soldiers, if it was found that they have killed civilians.

I want to enlarge your understanding since I grow up in a country of war. Iraq is not Vietnam, but there are many similarities that these soldiers face.

These soldiers are Marines. They are armed and trained to kill. They are put in a hostile situation (war). They don't know who are friends and who are foes. They constantly face danger every day. When in doubt, they probably kill, because if hesitant, they may lose their life, or their companion's life. The Marines have a lot of pride in themselves. I am sure news like this hurt them deeply. Nobody likes to kill innocent people.

I don't know what actually happen. But we have put them in a difficult situation. It is the unfortunate outcome of war. Things like this happen during war. Anger and frustration can flare up, and with a gun in hand, things happen. I hope that we learn from this.

History and Politics - Hiroshima and Nagasaki

God explains ...

In the United States, you do not teach your children everything there is to know about your country's decision to drop atom bombs in two Japanese cities, killing or maiming hundreds of thousands of people. Rather, you give them the facts as you see them - and as you want them to see them.

When an attempt is made to balance this point of view with the point of view of another - in this case, the Japanese - you scream and rage and rant and rave and jump up and down and demand that schools don't dare even think about presenting such data in their historical review of this important event. Thus, you have not taught history at all, but politics.

History is supposed to be an accurate, and full, account of what actually happened. Politics is never about what actually happened. Politics is always one's point of view about what happened.

History reveals, politics justifies. History uncovers; tells all. Politics covers; tells only one side.

Politicians hate history truly written. And history, truly written, speaks not so well of politicians, either.

Yet you are wearing the Emperor's New Clothes, for your children ultimately see right through you. Children taught to critically think look at your history and say, "My, how my parents and elders have deluded themselves." This, you cannot tolerate, so you drum it out of them. You do not want your children to have the most basic facts. You want them to have your take on the facts.

To stay with our example, do you really imagine it was absolutely necessary to drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima? What do your American historians say about the many reports, by those who claim to know more about what really happened, that the Japanese Empire had privately revealed to the United States its willingness to end the war before the bomb was dropped? How much of a part did revenge for the horror of Pearl Harbot play in the bombing decision? And, if you accept that dropping the Hiroshima bomb was necessary, why was it necessary to drop a second bomb?

It could be, of course, that your own account of all this is correct. It could be that the American point of view on all this is the way it actually happended. That is not the point of this discussion. The point here is that your educational system does not allow for critical thinking on these issues, or very many other issues, for that matter.

Can you imagine what would happen to a social studies or history teacher in Iowa who asked a class the above quesiions, inviting and encouraging the students to examine and explore the issues in depths and draw their own conclusions?

That is the point! You don't want your young ones drawing their own conclusions. You want them to come to the same conclusions you came to. Thus, you doom them to repeat the mistakes to which your conclusions led you.

Your world has run amok! On this I will agree. But your world has not run amok because of what you have allowed your schools to teach your children. It has run amok because of what you have not allowed them to teach.

You have not allowed your schools to teach that love is all there is. You have not allowed your schools to speak of love which is unconditional.
