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.
