Lesson In Empathy #2: Questioning Vs. Accusing About Cultures.

Let’s get one thing straight. We will not get rid of culture in people. If we did, it would strip everyone of self identity and as a formless spirit-that’s great. As a human in a body in the physical world-that’s dystopian society.

Just imagine for a second a place where all humans were made to wear the same clothes (probably a neutral color), not be able to hold festive cultural celebrations, (no more Day of the Dead taco celebrations, or pub crawls for St. Patrick’s Day). We would look possibly different, but our accessories and clothes would be stripped away to stop any feelings of separation. It sounds a bit like the Giver, Big Brother, etc. This to me is not unity, this is oppression of the human spirit.

Quite possibly there could be a positive idea, but it may also cause a bit of a dullness and not a “zest” in life that we have today.

What I advocate for is to be able to rise above perceptions of different cultures and traditions and start to see all mankind as One. The Quran teaches that, and so do many other religious texts. It is time we start living this way. We do not have to look the same, or even think the same. But we do have to SEE the same things with our spiritual minds and hearts.

Example 1: People on the internet, or in person like to say things about other people’s cultures and religions..WITHOUT being knowledgeable about them. Now, there is no way that we can be knowledgeable about ALL cultures, traditions and customs. We don’t have enough time on the clock for that, but we can stop ourselves from saying anything definite without knowledge. We can start to ask more questions, than accuse people of things.

The wrong way of speaking:

Person unknowledgeable about Hindus: “All Hindus hate Jesus! I heard that from somewhere…”

*notice keyword is: heard. That means this person does not have direct knowledge about the subject and this is as accusatory statement with the exclamation point versus a question mark.

So here is what a conversation would have to look like from a person more aware to prevent wars:

Person unknowledgeable about Hindus:  “Do all Hindus hate Jesus? I believe I heard that from somewhere, but not sure if it is true or not. Can you explain your beliefs more?”

 

Do you see the incredible difference in humbling oneself to ask another to give them knowledge about something unknown to them, so that they can learn the truth and bring it forwards?  It really makes a difference how you speak to people. If you are not sure about a subject, or don’t have firsthand experience with it, please ask people if you have concerns, stop accusing and causing anger on the web or on the street. I am confident this behavior happens MORE on the web, that is why there is a lesson in punctuation here for writing.

We need to start to explore each other’s worlds more and in turn find many different dimensions to earth with its people. This is having empathy for others as well as stopping yourself from looking like the fool.

If you don’t know. Ask. Don’t make accusations first. The Quran teaches that you can never judge unjustly and I consider making accusing statements even judging, so please be mindful of this and watch what you say or write about people different from you. Try to look at things from their point of view.

A Lesson In Empathy #1: Manners In Public Spaces

This is of course not for those following my blog, they resonated with the words I have wrote so you are aware of this level of empathy. I thank you for taking time to read and to hold my hand energetically. 🙂

This is for those who have forgotten that part of themselves and feel a bit distant from others. They can not quite see the connection, but they happened to stumble upon my blog and are reading it right now in whatever time and place that they are at.

This lesson is not to condemn, nor ridicule. It is to REMIND you of what you are as a human and what you have the potential to create on this planet. I understand that most humans want peace and love. But many don’t know HOW to get it. I like to teach using personal examples since I find people connect ideas more to their own life to really take it in.

Example 1:

I was at the movies last night to watch The 5th Wave,  and I noticed that at a 9:55pm movie there were two babies in the theater crying. There were people talking loudly, not whispering to each other, texting with the light blinding others views. I was not the only one unhappy. I could here several times “hushes” from the audience to quiet the others down. My unrest happened most when I felt others at unrest. The rudeness of others was impeding on everyone’s experiences to relax and escape into a 2 hour film. The babies at the movies that late at night, is unacceptable. The movie was about aliens invading the world. Loud noises. bright lights. scary sounds were evading their little ear drums making them cry out for their mothers. One of the mother’s had her baby sitting on the stair in the dark, asking to be tripped over or stepped on by another. It took everything in my power not to run to that child seat and bring that baby to the mother and tell her not to keep him on the stair for others to step on in the dark. It was strange to see so many people unaware of others at the same time. Talking loudly was a couple sitting next to me about their dinner, and not the movie. Please wait and know there is a time for everything. If you have a small child please think about how the crying will affect other’s experiences when you bring them to an adult movie. I know others can relate, this is not an alien story to many.

When we share a shared space as humans, we need to start to see them as having the same need as ourselves. So thoughts have to literally become like this:

“If I bought a ticket to see a movie and spent my hard earned cash, then others have too and I need to be respectful and quiet to ensure that they enjoy themselves just as much as I do.”

I know it may seem like a little thing, but empathy starts this way. It is a seed that grows into a global awareness of others that rushes forwards.

So next time you are in a public space with others, try to imagine what YOU would like to get out of the experience and treat others in this way. Maybe you don’t care about your own experience and are wasting time and money, but then you need to go even further outside yourself to create peace for others.

When we start to see each other in this way in the public spaces we share in our communities, this will start to extend outwards towards others NOT in our public space and we will in turn will come together against injustices and stand up for what is impeding on other’s experiences.

Please share this not as a scolding, but a reminding of the empathic creations we were created to be. I am not perfect and need this reminding too. We are not inherently selfish, this is a choice we make. We know this because acting in this way once we become aware does not feel good. Emotions are a thermometer for how our path is aligning towards truths or falsehoods.

I Am Here To Stop The Wars: There Are Many…Join Us?

In a world torn apart by greedy geopolitical agendas that kill innocent people and leave cities in ruins, I am passionate for unity. I am so passionate about showing the religious unity within Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, because THESE are the factions that are warring together. I am not trying to out the pagans, or those other 4,000 religions created by split consciousness and personal ideologies. I am talking about the BIG ones that have millions of people involved in each and have had some sort of guide book presented from otherworldly sources. None of their books have told them to kill without consent from God..and yet their human nature has taken over their spiritual one. They have been taken over by Satan.

Not everyone, mind you, is warring together from these sects. If you look closely you will see the wise, polarized to good, experienced souls sitting back and reflecting on the “children’s” mess. Some of these souls have decided to take on the duty to alleviate the world of pain and suffering by teaching others about changing perspectives, forming unity with diverse communities, activism towards events unjust, and even protest against tyrannical leaders. Some of these souls know it is time to teach the younger ones some manners through peaceful means.

Let’s face it. The people in charge do not hold God’s honor or will in their hearts. They hold their own. They want the money, power, and control and are more likened to King Nimrod than ever a spiritual monk or yogi. This is not God’s fault. These men have took hold of the seats of power throughout history by oppression, threats, and fear using religion as a device. Machiavelli’s, The Prince, is all about using fear to control people and they have all used this. Pharaohs of Egypt did it. Hitler did it. Stalin did it. The Bolsheviks did it. It is what has been chastised by God for ages through burning bushes, and angels of Light inspiring the divine thought that this is wrong!

Wars are not created by those with God in their hearts. Their hearts are closed off from seeing the unity and feeling empathy for their fellow beings. Wars are about survival because they don’t have the faith to see God has a great plan and just trust….and let God. When you act in opposition to this plan of goodness and growth, you are going to experience resistance from those who are in alignment to the plan.

Yes, my soul is not new. It is connected to the others of the past who have wanted to put an end to the injustices, godless cruelty of the few in charge. If you look really deeply you will see all human activists who stood up for others had faith in God, and they allowed this sense of community work through them to preserve others. I am an Indigo child, born already with this “mission” to help get humanity back on track to unity and loving one another, living out the rest of our days in peace. God created me this way for the Divine Plan. I am not the only one, it is time to figure out and discover if you too were created to stop the wars and suffering.

Ask yourself, do you resonate with my words of unity? Do you see what I SEE? This isn’t about a secret society forming. This is about all our heads lifting to the sky and then around to each other, then down at our weapons we hold, and making that final and permanent choice to drop them.

I was an Indigo Child born with the DNA structure to be aware of this in the world at an early age, but it only has become more stronger and now I am an Adult Indigo, and I will tell you there are many. We just need to start using our gifts of sight, empathy, and alignment towards the truth together.  We will inspire the rest to follow by doing our duties and jobs on earth as servants to God. The rest will follow, and if they don’t they made a choice. I am confident that there are MANY Indigos out there…and so WE are going to be the saviors of humanity together bringing a new awareness in, born from the source of infinity. Are you ready?

If you are…then start to blog, write posts on facebook, create a website, make videos, write a book, talk to friends, heck…even stand on the street.

But here is what to “preach”. Don’t preach about condemnation or people going to Hell, people close their minds and ears off to that and it is not right to judge a soul…you have NO IDEA where that soul has traveled to on their journey and amends they have made. What you can do is teach about peace, unity, love, and oneness not as an idea, but as a teacher teaching the student new skills. That is why you are here. God created you to help humanity…you volunteered possibly…who knows…all I know is IF this is your mission and you felt it to be more than make money, have a family and die, then you know I am talking to you.

You are a teacher and a guide for other young souls. Start NOW. We don’t have that much time those in power are blind, and we must become the light that shines SO BRIGHTLY that all will open their eyes.

I am not affiliated with the illuminati or any group. I am an individual soul that decided to help humanity in times of great need. I know I am not alone and there have been many through history. It has been lonely until now. Do not look at me as a leader, please look at me as an “awakener” and rub those sleepy eyes, in the name of God and all things Good and worth fighting for on this earth.

 

Will you join this invisible community that is growing?

Why Do I Believe In God?

A man asked me today online, “what makes you so sure God exists?”

I took it as a moment to guide someone towards hope and faith, as it came quite sincerely and without insult, I answered him. I share with you guys too so you can share this with others if anyone asks you why you have faith or spiritual beliefs. I believe this was the best answer I have ever came up with, by showing the pattern throughout history.

Here is what I said:

Thanks for asking! I will tell you it is different for everyone, but for me it is because some of the most inspirational people in history believed in God. I connect to these people and what they say. They may not see God as the same, but they do not claim that God does not exist, only that God is far more incredible than we realize. Because of these people and their comments on God aligning to my thoughts, they confirm to me that God exists and carried them through some miraculous achievements.

I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.”
~Abraham Lincoln

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
~William Shakespeare

God used beautiful mathematics in creating the world.
~Paul Dirac

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.
~Anne Frank

The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him – that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
~Swami Vivekananda

I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.
~John Lennon

When the solution is simple, God is answering.
~Albert Einstein

I don’t stand for the black man’s side, I don’ t stand for the white man’s side. I stand for God’s side.
~Bob Marley

Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.
~Albert Einstein

I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God’s creation.
~Maya Angelou

God, as Truth, has been for me a treasure beyond price. May He be so to every one of us.
~Mahatma Gandhi

Heaven means to be one with God.
~Confucius

Yeah. I agree with these awesome people.

Edgar Cayce Was a Muslim Christian!

“There is a common bond we all share as a collective humanity: There is but one God, and we are all God’s children. In order to reawaken that sense of connectedness we share with one another, the readings state that the start of any spiritual journey should begin with the knowledge that the Lord God is One. Regardless of the name we call God or the religion on earth that we feel drawn to, there is but one Creator, one Source, one Law. In fact, perhaps more than anything else, this concept of “oneness” is the underlying philosophy of the Edgar Cayce readings.” Read more here:  http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/edgarcayce.aspx?id=3558

Belief in the One God or the Lord is One? That’s a Muslim, my friends. Even though he was a Christian, he was also a Muslim. Funny how that can work when you see unity.

 

Edgar Cayce, one of the most famous psychics of all time.

Edgar Cayce Was a Man of Understanding: Jesus in Islam.

“Essentially, the readings present Jesus as our “Elder Brother,” a soul who came to show each one of us the way back to our spiritual Source by perfectly manifesting the laws of the Creator. Part of His mission was to fully demonstrate the living awareness of the Spirit in the earth-something each one of us will eventually have to do. Therefore, Jesus’ life of service to others serves as an example for all of humankind. ”

~Excerpt from Edgar Cayce’s readings on Oneness.

Education in Religion: Seeing the Unity

I believe that God truly has tested humans to use our brains. We are not to read one book and close our minds off to others. It has helped me to see the unity by immersing myself in not just the Quran, but in many other spiritual books and religious texts. I took a quiz yesterday to see how much I knew about religion and I scored pretty high due to my study of it throughout the years. If you do not have knowledge about a certain religion, you should caution yourself to ever speak negatively openly about it in public. You may have your opinions, but without knowledge, they are just that and never facts. Go to the source of the religious texts to get the information about another religion besides your own. You do not have to believe in something in order to learn. If anything, it solidified my own path by reading what I didn’t agree with.

If interested in testing your knowledge about world religions from the pew research please go here:

This is some of the books that have helped me see and understand the Quran in an unifying and peaceful light:
