- Isn't it time we began working to systematically (re)introduce higher understandings and refined ambitions back into the human ideologico-political space/s? Undesirable, destructive violence is a symptom of a lack of power, which means: a lack of control, of responsibility, a lack of vision, of ambition, of courage and of hope.
Hmm.. perhaps a matter of perspective..
All that a person does is but a little bit more noise in the fray. But your noise can be directed more toward what you accept as a positive rather than merely turned loose such as to undirectedly become a negative. Thus children are taught, tires are checked, calculations are made, violins are tuned, roses are purchased, wine is chilled.. all merely in a effort to direct the noise a little more toward the positive. Just try to learn the difference between positive and negative, BEFORE you choose, before the choice of spouse, before the child is conceived, before the child is taught, before the politics is chosen, before the belief in the need to lead others into war and domination.
Homosapian has gotten himself into such a state that he cannot truly resolve any problem without resolving all problems. And though he has been prepared and given the answers, he is not quite ready to understand how to do that. But if you want a short glimpse into the future...
Nothing has ever, does, or will ever exist without inspiration. What you call "violence" is inspired from many directions. All behaviors are inspired by too much of their opposite, seen as a threat. The opposite of your Violence is none other than.. Peace.
Life cannot and will not abide by any extreme. Life tolerates every form of extreme up to a point, but tip the balance of life too far, and no matter who you are, no matter what great power you wield, you will be overcome, possibly to death. Life will not tolerate control by anything but the whole of itself of which is neither Man nor order of men.
God did indeed create Ahdam, as God creates all that has ever existed. But though it was written that God said, "this is good", I assure you, that wasn't The God speaking. To try to control the life of another beyond their will, is a sin/error in jusdgment. If such control is discovered, which it always will be, the controller will be destroyed.. always (hence the need to hide behind the fig leaves). Stop trying to control the lives of others beyond their will, without their knowledge and agreement. As always, Life tolerates the effort.. up to a point, a point before which one was to have learned of his sin/error. Homosapian does not learn quickly.
All violence is inspired by perceived need, the perceived hopes and threats that indicate violence is the best choice. The simple mind, seeing threat most readily, attempts to use threat against violence, threat against threat, fire against fire, hatred against hatred. But as any fire marshal will tell you, such can only lead to a better resolve when carefully controlled by "the experts".
When the experts, the generals, the politicians, anoint violence to be used against violence, they no longer call it violence, but "justified war". Yet it is still one element of life attempting to control others. Life will tolerate only a limited amount of such dominion.. from ANYone... anyone at all or any order or group.
Thus the lesson that is finally learned (not too distance from now), is that Life shall not be controlled by worship of pyramid orders, socialist structures. Even the shape and form of a pyramid is only limitedly tolerated by Life. Look at any of the trillions of forms of life. Try to find a single one in the form of a pyramid. Pyramids can only exist as long as life itself protects them and that protection is forfeit upon too much effort to dominate the one doing the protecting.
The balance between Violence and Peace is called "Harmony". Life and all that exists depend on and protects its own harmony, without which it has no life or form. Thus focus not for or against the opposite poles, but rather on the essence of life itself, the harmony that defines the very soul, definition of Life. Stop merely pushing in an opposite direction such as to cause a tide that you cannot control. Increase the effort instead to seek more of what life actually is rather than merely the effort to destroy what it is not, consume all energy in the direction of maximum harmony both within oneself and between oneself and all immediately surrounding, then one has disinspired, removed the energy from, the cause what his life isn't. That which maintains its harmony, cannot perish.
Without the threat of disharmony, replaced by the hope of harmony, the sins of Violence and stagnant Peace have no inspiration and lose their right to exist.
A) learn what "Harmony" means
B) learn the difference between "Self-harmony" and "Controlling the harmony of others"
C) learn to stop trying to control the lives of others.
D) learn to focus on increasing the momentum, the energy and swirl of your Self-Harmony, your own lives.
E) learn how to teach others why they would want to do the same.
F) learn how to teach them how to do the same should they choose to.
Life cherishes the harmony within life.. wherein there is neither Peace nor Violence, but eternal perpetual motion; dancing, thinking, singing, feeding, building, restoring, and resting.
When that day comes, there will be no more room for violence nor its inspiration. It will find no need.
Until then, one has no option but to try to learn for themselves and
- LEAVE OTHER PEOPLE TO THEIR OWN LESSONS AND ACCEPTANCE.
- STOP TRYING TO BE THE INVISIBLE "IMAGE OF GOD", CONTROLLING ALL LIFE. Invisibility is absolutely metaphysically impossible.
.. and try to not forget again, that genocide equates to suicide.
Until such lessons are learned, the sin/error in judgment, the suffering, and the violence will continue.
