Peacemakers


 

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of god”, is a verse from the book of mark in the bible.

This verse continually pops up in my head, for various reasons. But one of the main reasons is a situational context that never fails to remind me of the contra dictional and hypocritical nature of christianity.

Around the age of 11, I was really trying to understand my environment, find my place in it, and begin to build a network of familiars that would stay with me through my life. It wasn’t a conscious effort, it’s simply a part of growing older.

During this time I read the bible numerous times, found many holes in stories, drastic contradictions, outright reversals in doctrine, and teachings that I could find no reference to.

My father was a preacher. One of the aspects of that job was to do research. To look up translations from Greek to English, and the adaptations and substitutions as the english language changed over the years. Another aspect of that research was to try to make sense of certain things.

He told me once that it was his duty to use his knowledge to help regular people understand what the bible meant. So I thought he could help me, I was very wrong in that. But not entirely.
What I was wrong about was he didn’t want to help anyone understand the bible better, most preachers don’t. What they want is people to accept what they say, and their authority. When that authority is questioned, they flip out. Nearly every preacher or priest does that, some are just more subtle than others.
One thing my father always preached about to show jesus to be all knowing, was him sitting in the temple at the age of 12. These verses mainly.

“[46] After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. [47] Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. [48] When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

[49] “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” [50] But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

[51] Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. [52] And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. ”
If jesus knew all this as to amaze TEACHERS at the age of 12, would he not know that being a peacemaker he would be called a son of god?
Like this right here.

Ye have heard that it hath been said , Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do . He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

The Jews answered him, saying , For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said , Ye are gods?

If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came , and the scripture cannot be broken

Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified , and sent into the world , Thou blasphemest ; because I said , I am the Son of God?

If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

But if I do , though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know , and believe , that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen : that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed , neither shall there be after me.

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour .

I have declared , and have saved , and I have shewed , when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God

Now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard FROM GOD

Countless examples of jesus following and reiterating the jewish laws and ways to jews who apparently didn’t know their own beliefs. He called himself a son of god AND a son of man. Because he was only a man, born of a man and woman, but he devoted his life to being a peacemaker, and in their laws and ways, that would make him a son of god.

It’s like an Elder seeing a good person and adopting them to their family, calling them their son or daughter. They are not saying this person came from me, they are saying this person is in my heart like my own blood.

For the jews it is obvious if you read these verses they saw god as ultimately a peacemaker, and the living that chose the life of a peacemaker were taken into the heart of god as his own children.

Perpetual creation? Part 1 energy


 

Another discussion a brother and I were having, where I shared my view of creation as perpetual motion in an open system.

I know it sounds like I was trying to use science to base my viewpoint, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth, I only used perpetual motion as a description for a larger picture.

To clarify, I’m using the definition of perpetual motion in the context of both and neither definitions.

Basically an open system that sustains itself, but also a transfer of energy in and out as to seem endless or continual to a certain perspective, that actually is continual. If you are lost already, I’m not surprised, and I will try to explain in a way that makes sense to others.

Do you consider the only fuel for your life the food you eat, if so, why?

Everything has a limited amount of energy, and to continue operation, we need to introduce fuel, for the body that is food, but what about the heart, or the mind?

Everything is connected is some way, why would we exclude the heart/mind/body from that connection?

They are in fact so connected as to effect the function of the other. The heart depressed will bring the mind and body down with it. The mind worried will make the heart fear, and the body shake. So on and so on, one always effects the other.

If you break down the body to the very “building blocks” it is energy.

So what is the mind, and the heart? This I do not know in a way I can describe, but I will try and share what I see.

The mind can be shared, so can the heart, telepathy and empathy are the words used today.

Tele pathy from the Greek meaning, Far off suffering or feeling, not really accurate to say “mental communication” is it? But it is interesting to wonder if the Greeks considered emotions to come from the mind.

Em pathy From the Greek meaning inside suffering or feeling. So maybe they didn’t think emotions came from the mind, now I’m confused.

Anyway, mind language, and heart language, we’ll go with that for the sake of clarity.

In my experience few people realize just how much everyone talks with their mind and their heart.

We recognize body language, why not heart and mind language?

From my experience people get worried, and feel violated when they realize they transmit their thoughts.

My experience also shows me that if everyone heard the heart language, they would break. The enormity of the suffering, darkness, rudeness, etc. that is ever increasing is a heavy weight to carry all the time. Most people don’t want to recognize this now, and they surely wouldn’t want to feel all of it.

But enough of that tangent, back to languages. The mind, heart and body “speak” to each other constantly. They are one of a whole, no matter how much we may try and suppress one or the other.

In this “speaking” energy is shared, if you have ever seen the old Celtic trinity, it’s like that, ever flowing. This symbol is much older than the Christianity that adopted it to assimilate, and it is rooted in every white person from that land.

My people, and many other first nations, use the medicine wheel, I will not say all, because I do not know that for sure.

20120207-071251.jpg

We see four, celtics saw three, but there is a shared knowledge of the mind heart body between the two.

Anyway, this sharing of language and energy, is not limited to what makes up humans. This same circle is in all life, formed different ways for the place in the circle, but it is still there.

A tree speaks in these, as does the bird that lives in it, or the rabbit that makes the home in its roots, or the grass that grows at it’s feet, or the mother it sets it’s roots into. All speak these three languages, besides their own particular language.

Everything we interact with shares this language with us, and we with it.

Selective hearing is a perfect description of what I see. A man that does not respect his woman, will not give her his ear, and listen to her when she needs to talk through what is troubling her. The exact same thing has happened between humans and all the nations around us. For some they still respect, and they still listen, but the full communication has been forgotten over time.

We Cherokee have stories that include lines of long ago when the animals spoke with us. This is not a myth, a fantasy story, or just a story to entertain children. It is a story to remind us of what was, how we lost this I don’t know, someone might, but I don’t.

Anyway, this language is an energy, like our voice travels on waves of sound, so do these languages travel on waves of other forms of energy.

As far as my understanding goes, there are multiple layers overlapping each other that we exist in. The mind would be one, the heart another, the body another, yet another is life.

The best analogy for this I have seen so far, is sunlight shining through glass, crystal, diamond, water, the atmosphere, etc. Where the light containing many waves of light is separated into different colors. A door to a house with designs and beveled glass will throw rainbows for example. We see the sunlight as a whole, not all the different colors. But the sunlight shines in all these colors at once to our eyes, and we do not see the layers of light separated. For some reason I’m like a prism.

20120207-065131.jpg

I don’t know another way to describe this, but there is a “balance energy” that flows into, through, around, all things. Life and death flow intermingled within this. So do masculine and feminine. Positive and negative.

This flows through us, and within us is a “circle with two halves” positive and negative. When we are happy or angry, we produce and access this balance energy. Whichever we take into our heart, we share with others, happy or angry. It flows into us like a river, and out like “liquid spheres”.

Everything feels and reacts to these spheres we send out. Watch a child when you are angry, but silent, an animal when you are afraid or willing to kill, all around you when you are filled with peace.

The environment around you isn’t dependent on actions alone, but thoughts, and feelings.

When I lay on a grassy hill, close my eyes, let my body relax into the grass, forget the rocks that I am laying on, listen to the wind flowing through the blades of grass, the birds in the trees, I find a calm.

When I keep this going, I focus on the peaceful feeling inside me, I let all the troubles, worries, stress, noises, go away.

When you calm yourself, find that peace in your own heart, and let it become all you are, these languages begin to get loud enough you can hear.

I thank the grass for its softness, the wind for its gentle touch, the birds for their beautiful songs, and I thank creator for making it all.

Here is a link to one story of long ago and languages.

http://www.cherokee.org/AboutTheNation/KidsArea/TraditionalStories/24591/Information.aspx
It cannot become a contest, something to win, or an achievement. You cannot worry about not doing it right, you cannot try to hear these things.

The only way that has ever worked for me, is to not think about it, not try to do anything, just let the peace flow through me. Appreciate the place I am in, and the beauty in nature around me.

These two are sine waves. Sound, ripples on a pond, follow this pattern, but also so does the atmosphere.

This, is a diagram of air flows and currents around the earth. Imagine a coil like the one below running north to south around the earth. See the dots and Xs on the coil? Put them alternately in line and compare them to this diagram, and you can see one circle turning the other.

20120601-143347.jpg

This is a magnetic field around a coil. Notice the circular fields at the curves of the coil. Stretch this coil out, to look more like a sine wave, less compressed basically.

20120601-121647.jpg

This diagram shows more detail about the circular nature of the atmosphere. Which is easily evident simply by watching clouds and paying attention to winds.

20120601-123621.jpg

This is a diagram of a hurricane, notice the same circular pattern in the clouds, that was described in the earth diagram, third from the top.

20120601-155230.jpg

This is a diagram of the Parker spiral the magnetic field of the sun produces. Consider this same process conceptually coming from the earth, making waves of energy resulting in the alternating circular winds in the third diagram.

20120603-184003.jpg

This is an artist rendering of our galaxy. I often wonder about these “glowing center” renderings, if we can see stars so far away, how is it we never see this glowing center? I used this to show the placement of the earth, but also to show the arms of the galaxy. Compare this rendering to the diagram of the hurricane, and remember how the winds turn.

20120603-184112.jpg

This shows the solar plane in relation to the galactic plane. Notice it is nearly 90 degrees. As the spiral arm of the galaxy turn, just like in a hurricane, it carries the earth around with it, and the circular nature of the galaxy being just like that of a hurricane, sets the planets spinning.

When I began to learn about this energy I see and feel, I was taught to track it. How and where it began, when it changed, how it was the same and different than other things in creation.

I’ve already said energy for the body comes from the food we eat, and that was the first example I was taught. To understand how something tangible for everyone worked, it would help me to understand the things selective to me.

More on this in living…

Just like our bodies have an energy, so do plants and animals. When we eat these things, we also consume an energy. We know about the nutrients, but few know about the energy consumed also.

If what we eat is corrupted, be it pesticides, genetic restructuring, various chemicals from the water, the plant or animal is in turn corrupted, and the nutrients and energy we eat are in turn corrupted.

Corrupting the body weakens it, allowing diseases that would normally be dealt with to take hold. It also lowers our tolerance of the mind and heart. We become more impatient, less flexible, less adaptable, quicker to anger, slower to compassion.

Those are also an energy produced. Our bodily fuel and fitness depends on how well the energy from the mind and heart are transmitted. In electronics, if you have poor quality parts the transmissions and receptions will be degraded. It is the same basic concept in the body, it is simply a living technology, instead of one built of dead separated and transformed things.

Fire flickers at a certain frequency depending on its fuel. An experiment was done at stone henge and another at a stone henge replica in Washington, testing the effects of drums reverberating within the stone enclosure.

http://soundsofstonehenge.wordpress.com/

It is known that a steady tone repeated will effect the beat of our heart. It is also known that sound waves at a certain frequency change the wave patterns in our brains.

It is known that alpha waves at certain frequencies alter what we perceive. That certain people who have claimed certain extra senses have varied wave patterns in their brains.

Plug up an AC adapter to a wall plug but leave it detached from a charging source, can you hear the high pitched whine coming from it?

It is known that electricity generating stations emit an electro magnetic field at such strength that it can cause “hallucinations”.

What do you think the blanket of electro-magnetic energy caused by all the electricity we produce causes?

I have read about chakras, acupuncture, and the like. I have experienced acupuncture and it works, though I knew it would if done properly, as I see the energy points they describe, and know a bit about how they work.

I see “fire spots” in the bodies energy system, and I see them elsewhere some seem to be described much like the chakras are, but I will not use those terms because I do not follow that way, and have no idea of their teachings and what they mean. So I will call it like I see it.

Fire spots I guess could also be described as sun spots, as they are round, very bright, and warm. I call them fire spots because you can look at some fire, depending on the intensity, of course the sun is fire, so it’s a bit of apples and oranges.

Also because when a person is weak, they resemble embers or coals. The sun as we see it, only sets and comes again. That weakness can come from many sources. Stress, diet, lack of enough fuel, among a few.

Like a fire, when the fuel is used up, the fire dies. But if fuel is continually added, the fire will stay lit. Or like a storm, fuel or lack of fuel.

This is an ultraviolet picture of spicules swaying in alfvenic waves on the sun.

Notice the similarities between these two?

http://celldynamics.org/celldynamics/research/cytokinesis/index.html

If one of these eruptions caused a small mass of liquid from the sun (about the size of the earth there) to separate, and it being liquid made a sphere in space as liquid does, then as it distanced itself from the sun it cooled, a crust would be made on the outside.


Notice the similarities in magnetic fields?

Fear


Of all the things working against the people no matter what nation, one of the major things, is fear.

As a boy things happened to me that made me learn how to deal with fear. I had to learn how to overcome it, not just continually fight it, but how to not allow it to appear in the first place.

Growing up knowing this, I saw in others how their fear will effect them. Even I, having learned so much early on, continually saw things that brought an irrational fear. It taught me that no matter how much you know, you will always encounter new things.

As I began dating not knowing how to be good around women, as in respect for them, learning about them, seeing they are different and learning to accept that, and not understanding that seemingly good people can do hurtful things and not fully realize it, I got burned by women, trying to learn, understand, figure out how I was supposed to act, and find a woman that matched me.

I realize now that I hurt the women as much as they hurt me at times, and just as I did not mean to hurt them, many times they did not mean to hurt me.

But this hurt built a larger and more extensive “fortress” to protect me from getting hurt. Realizing this in myself I could see this in the women I had dated.

This defense led to a fear, that fear led to making up problems. Seeing troubles where none existed, seeing hurtful actions when she made an innocent mistake.

Holding onto these hurts, stresses, etc., was described to me as carrying stones. More weight added to you than you need to carry. It is a very accurate description.

But relationships are just one small aspect. Protecting is another aspect. Growing up I would see others, or get into situations myself that taught me what the laws were, I would also read up on the laws as best as I could understand for the particular place I was living at the time.

In learning these laws, and trying to conform to them, I came to understand that they are extremely restrictive for those that follow the law, yet extremely lenient for those that break the law.

Talking to men and women, I could see their non-confidence in the law protecting them and their families. I could see in myself as well as others, that this non-confidence, coupled with the restrictions gave man and women both a helpless feeling. Where if a wrong was done to them, the person might get caught, might not, but even if they did, thy would serve a few years or months in jail, then be out to do it again.

These all added together create a fear. A rational fear but an unresolved fear as well. That leads to irrational thoughts and feelings. A cat bumps a window climbing on the window sill, and it’s someone there to break in.

Crime isn’t punished to the extent it needs to be to stop recurrence. When a man feels a need to protect his family, but has to delegate that protection to another, in his heart, he loses a large piece of who he is, he is delegating the responsibility to his family to a total stranger. That creates a detachment from his responsibilities, and will bleed over into other things. But it also creates a worry that his family will not be protected, that worry can and usually does at some point, lead to fear.

Many women still look to the men around them to provide protection. I have seen women deny this, but then shortly after do that very thing. I see nothing wrong with it, as long as it doesn’t become a crutch, or something that gives away their freedom or strength.

Being raised in a Christian environment, I was taught to fear creator, the love of creator was taught, but it was done so in a way that suggested the love was conditional. It was also taught that causing fear was a good thing. Putting the fear of god into someone is a good example of this.

Using fear to get anything done among your community is no way to go about things. If someone comes to hurt someone and you need to protect your own, I think making them fear would be applicable. Our old ways used extreme punishments according to this society. But they worked. Apparently the laws now aren’t working, as anyone can see.
