It is not that I ask that you close your eyes to anything, but rather I ask that you open them to something else.
What "fight" are you talking of? What conflict do you count yourself part of?
Is your time on Gods earth a time of "your war"....or is it more like being a guest in someone elses home?
You lay claim to the middle east as though it is yours personally. Like you are being robbed personally.
Governments will always be corrupt. Do you not see that? You dont have to be....that is YOUR freedom.
I would never ask another free man to bend his knee. No free person wishes another to be a slave. It is intolerable to a free spirit.
Ask your self this. Would the west be interested in the resources of the middle east if powerful men had not offered them? Take for example South
America or Cuba....
Everywhere the power elite of a territory has opposed the west as an ally it has not set up shop. Everywhere it is offered a recompense for its
business it stays.
You think every ounce of precious metal and drop of oil in the middle east would go to the people if the west was openly asked to stay away?
Asia is richer in monetary value of its combined resources then the middle east. South America is still virgin, holding vast unknown resources just
under its dense jungles....why is the west not everywhere there?
Because some countries have not been asked the west to do business with them by the ruling elite there. That is why.
Take Egypt. Muslim brotherhood robbed the nation of Egypt of a true election. 10% voted and the puppet that won had only a 56% percentage of those
votes. So about 5% of the population asked for his leadership.....WHY?
Because the true power of Egypt is not foolish. They know the generations of their houses will stand wealthy no matter the dynamic on the street and
in the hearts of the people.
The west is not omnipotent...and it is not a belligerent oath crashing into other peoples houses drunk on oil.....it is a sly fox that is asked to
visit by the master of the home.
Everywhere the west is in force, it is there upon the request of those that OWN the country or territory that needs to be intervened. The true power
of any nation is not aligned with the true identity of its people. It is power unto itself. The same is true of even my own home.
I could get caught up on all that and commit to "my war" against it, but that would be dumb and sinful.
I am too busy trying to stay true to my truth. I am too concerned with my family and my personal struggle to overcome my human condition to even
entertain the thought out of arrogance that somehow....I am needed to wage a war against or fight an enemy I alone chose to stand against.
It is very arrogant if you think about it to think that God needs you or myself to fight another bipedal animal known as "man" in order to stop him
eating more than us or being more comfortable than us because he collects more shiny metals, rocks, and million year old organic rot in the form of
If that is his choice then so be it. I am none the less for it.
Why take any banner or symbol made by man and then think it somehow sets you apart from mankind or a particular man. God is not in "your war" or my
"home". God is not concerned with such things. Why would he?
That is only important to you and myself. Are you indispensable to God? He needs you as you are now?...youre perfect? Oh really?
No one is. Humanity is not.
You must focus on your own personal growth and well being. The world is not yours to decide what to do with it or how best it should be. Not even your
"HOME". That is not easy to accept. But it is true.
We are guests here. No one has claim to this world....not even a master in his home. We all die and leave to others what we are not truly.
Our spirit has a home. Our home is completed when we return. Nothing we think is ours in this world will be anyones eventually when enough time
All through that, of generations of men being born and killed,God exists. He is not a loan shark giving land and well being to people in exchange for
He does not "need" us to do a thing. WE NEED to make it back home. That means that every ounce of our being must be focused on that task. Not the
intervention of worldly events that we think need our attention.
That is not being a sheep. all the contrary. Only enlightened souls make it home. The rest stay in the "hotel earth"....like guests fighting over the
best room. Some even end up working there and the hotel becomes their home, like some sort of house slave.
The rest...well they are just passing through. Just visiting. Here for what ever reason personally, but ultimately en route to home. That is their
concern. Getting there.
What is your goal? being part of "heaven" (excuse the word) or being part of a more perfect earth according to you?
Let empires rise and fall as long as good men can still walk the earth.
what more do you want? You can still be a good man.
Why judge others, even the most evil of our lot? Is that your purpose?
You work here or something?
