Encouraged To Take Offence At Self-Identity
As long as people are encouraged to believe in an image of themselves, they will never realise the real thing – that we are, first and foremost, consciousness, pure and simple with no identity. The belief in a self-identity causes division, and is meant to. Even school children gang up = politics.
If we could realise our unity, we would be kind to one another, and there would be no chaos or confusion. As long as we feel different, we will suffer, and others will profit from it.
Take language: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, old Norse/Scandinavian … they all seem very different but, at their root, they have a commonality, just with different pronunciations. Once we know the trick of substituting sounds, we can get the gist of what is meant, more or less. It’s shown that Germans can probably understand old English better than the English can. 🙂
Nowadays, gender and race are added to the ingredients of confusion, and you may even be shunned or arrested for that confusion. Evil takes any small friction and exaggerates it. It’s how hatred and wars are started. It’s political = group bias.
Shunning: to persistently avoid, ignore, or reject someone.
From Old English scunian ‘abhor, shrink back with fear, seek safety from an enemy’.
This is especially prevalent within spiritual groups …
Know thy true self to be pure consciousness.
“This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
– Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Our reaction is our constant teacher,
and is always with us.
Everyone has experienced every emotion possible,
and that is why we can empathise
– if we are honest.
