One Earth Spirit

“They think to order all things wisely; but having rejected Christ they will end by drenching the world with blood.”

– FYODOR DOSTOYEVSKI (1821-1881) Russian novelist The Brothers Karamozov (1880)

368-1Men and women in rapidly increasing numbers around the Earth are now taking action to end the violence in Gaza. Why are millions of men and women concerned about the tragic situation there? Because there is something inside of every human being that brings about feelings of compassion upon witnessing harm and pain experienced by fellow human beings. That “something” is intangible; that which cannot be touched. That something is incorporeal; not consisting of matter; without material body or substance; of spirits or angels.

Message: Geneva II Syria Peace Talks

Blog Group Logo“There are only two kinds of men: those righteous who believe themselves sinners; the others sinners who believe themselves righteous.”

– Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

This video may give those who are attending the Geneva II Conference in Switzerland a greater focus on what is at stake in their discussions. It is some thoughts from refugees of Syria who have become displaced from the tragic situation brought about by some of the “grownup world leaders” on this planet.

People across the Earth were able to breathe a collective sigh of relief upon learning of a possible diplomatic route in lieu of military strikes on Syria. Katrina Vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation magazine, and Andrew Bacevich, veteran and professor at Boston University, discuss how significant this newest development in international relations is on Democracy Now.

Could we be witnessing the beginning of the end of war as a means of resolving differences in this world? Has the ability of men and women all around the Earth to instantaneously access truth with their keyboards played a significant role in the recent astonishing events regarding the Syrian crisis?

Answers to these questions will vary according to a person’s level of experiences, awareness and knowledge of the causes and circumstances of wars and killing. We can imagine some saying that war will never end because it is simply human nature-the way it has always been. Some will be slightly encouraged that world leaders have chosen to explore non-military options. Others will say that the year 2013 marks the beginning of the end for war.

Few will be able to make arguments that worldwide, instantaneous access to truth did not play a significant role in the current events regarding war and peace in Syria and the Middle East. More will credit the people’s access to truth as significant to the “no” vote in Britain’s parliament on military actions in Syria. Some will consider people around the world being able to gather knowledge and truth about the Syrian situation as highly significant, leading to the people’s representatives in government to execute the people’s will.

The majority of the citizens on this Earth do not want any more wars.

Humanity is witnessing the beginning of the end for war.

And The World Will Live As One.

“Not one statesman in a position of responsibility has dared to pursue the only course that holds out any promise of peace, the courage of supra-national security, since for a statesman to follow such a course would be tantamount to political suicide.”

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) Last written words, April 1955

Why did John Lennon and Yoko Ono create the song “Imagine”? Where did they find the ideas, what books did they read, who from the annals of history did they admire, when did they come to awareness of the potential for humanity experiencing higher consciousness?

Why do we as people create what we create? Where do we find our ideas, what books do we read, who from the annals of history do we admire, when will we come to awareness of the potential for humanity experiencing higher consciousness?

After discovering ideas, books, admirable men and women, and awareness of humanity’s ability to live on this Earth with a higher consciousness, what drove these souls, John Lennon and Yoko Ono?

Upon experiencing in the same way as every person does, discovery of ideas through writings from admirable men and women, ideas we approve and which give us some sense of pleasure, give us the sense of possibility of a way forward for the human race that is higher and nobler, what drives us?

What is this thing called higher consciousness that men and women have written about, that people discover, approve and derive some pleasure from? Is it possible that the entire world can live from this thing called higher consciousness?

When would be the ideal time to strive for this thing called higher consciousness? Today? Tomorrow? Next year when we have more time? Maybe when we retire and really have time for it. We see that maybe now would be a good time to advocate for a higher consciousness, with all the lower consciousness events occurring on Earth.

But we are not sure, this has been written about, and talked about, for thousands of years and nothing seems to change. Warring and killing have always been occurring. Maybe it is human nature and I have to face the facts on this. Maybe there is nothing I can do to change things.

Let me think about this now. If I delay my effort to achieve higher consciousness what will happen? What if I decided to make whatever effort is necessary to achieve higher consciousness now?

Higher consciousness could be seen as every thought we have which involves appreciation of the qualities of love, peace, brotherhood and oneness. These are the qualities we as human beings can first imagine, apply in our lives, and are the best options to choose for any chance of happiness on this Earth.

Humanity must strive with all its might for higher consciousness now.

The first step is shedding tears for all the men, women and children on this Earth who are suffering.

The next action is imagining a new way, and then choosing love, peace, brotherhood and oneness.
