Our society has been divided ever since Donald Trump appeared on the political scene in 2015, after he announced his candidacy. Trump was and is an outsider to the world’s permanent political class, and the puppet politicians in DC, who have standardized corruption. Even today, at the end of 2021 when Trump has been off the scene for ten months, mass media is all about Orange Man Bad.
Trump came along at the exact right time to expose the dark underbelly of U.S. society: the endemic corruption of our government in DC, the child and human trafficking at the southern border, the drug trafficking (opiates and fentanyl), and the criminalization and weaponization of our justice system. It’s all out in the open now. Even though Trump is no longer in office, he is still the fulcrum around which the division is being exposed. Watch the mainstream news if you don’t believe me.
Donald Trump himself is not the preeminent divider. From a Big Picture viewpoint, he’s not that important as an individual. It’s what he represents that’s important. He is a change agent, a human placeholder for a set of historical forces, or a “fourth turning,” that is reshaping society. Trump is the key energetic force around which the division in our society has taken shape. You either love Trump or hate him; very few people are indifferent toward him.
Good vs. Evil
He is the embodiment of the good vs evil meme.
The division in our society is based around the concept of good and evil.
There has always been a division in the human psyche around good and evil. This is a primitive concept suitable for a small planet and a human race that is still adolescent in its belief systems. Good and evil is a made up concept; it doesn’t exist in the realm of higher consciousness.
In order to achieve peace on earth, the good and evil meme (which is at the heart of karma) must be worked through until it is seen that people are simply making choices using their free will.
One person’s good is another person’s evil. Like all false dichotomies, both sides “flip” depending on which “side” you are on. That’s because there is no truth in the concept, which is used to create division and hatred. Good vs. evil is a karma generator.
Free will >> Karma.
“But killing is evil. There are certain prohibitions given by natural law, and God.”
Killing and even murder are divinely sanctioned. That is clear from even a cursory examination of human history and current events. It is a denial of reality to think that killing is prohibited by God.
“You are nuts,” you say. “World peace is a world without killing and violence.”
Sure, but how do you get there?
“Well, we have to get rid of the violent people. Then we can have peace.”
But how do you eliminate the violent ones?
That’s the 64 trillion dollar question. As Einstein once said, “It is impossible to solve a problem with the same consciousness that created the problem.” World peace can never exist in a consciousness that supports the confrontational good vs. evil meme.
The denial of free will and the good vs. evil meme lead to absurdities. Consider the Ohio State-Michigan football game, or any national sports rivalry. People on the Michigan side are praying to God to make their team win, because the OSU team is evil. People on the OSU side are praying to God to allow their team victory over the evil Michigan side. OSU has won 14 of the last 15 games, so the OSU folks say that God is on their side! Please, let’s abandon these adolescent concepts, which appear in every facet of society. God doesn’t care which “side” wins. The Creator is hoping that humanity will finally wake up to the ideas of free will and tolerance.
Intolerance and Free Will
Good and evil result from intolerance. Intolerance is essentially a denial of free will. Intolerance creates good and evil because people resist the actions or statements of others. They take sides. They take sides because they are unwilling to recognize the choices others make, and are unwilling to accept the idea that free will is divinely granted to EVERYONE.
The Great Experiment on earth is a test of free will and tolerance. It’s not a test of free will tempered by natural law, God, Spirit, or whatever system of ethics you follow. It’s a test of unlimited free will, granted to us by the Creator.
It has nothing really to do with love. “Love everyone” is an absurd concept. Do you love the neighbor who lets his yapping dog outside at 5 a.m. to wake you up every morning? Do you love the driver who cuts you off in traffic? Do you love the guy with a gun who is breaking into your house and attacking your family? Of course not.
On the other hand, if you were a loving person would you attract a person who breaks into your house?
Love is wonderful and it would be fantastic if everyone could love all people. But in this age of division it’s simply impossible unless you are a Divine Master (in which case you’re not on this planet – you have already graduated).
Peace on Earth
The key to peace on earth is twofold:
1) Accept the clearly demonstrable existence of unlimited and unconstrained free will.
2) Tolerate the beliefs, opinions, and actions of others even when they disagree with yours. This comes under the heading of, “tolerate fools,” or “I can’t create in the experience of others, but I can create in my own life.”
It’s a lot easier to tolerate than it is to love.
To tolerate, all you need to do is remove your agendas from the lives of others.
“But… but… the world is a messed up place and I need to change it.”
No. Change yourself and tolerate the agendas of others. Frankly, nobody cares about your agenda, unless you have produced a visionary program rooted in tolerance and cooperation. In that case, people will voluntarily flock to your cause and you don’t have to impose your agenda on anyone.
Persons who impose their agendas on others have little understanding of self or life.
People care about their own agendas. That’s what free will allows everyone to do. So let them get on with it, and you get on with yours in a spirit of tolerance. Then people find intersecting areas of interest and combine forces. Eventually the whole planet agrees on one thing: today we are not going to be violent in order to get our way.
Tolerance and Love
Peace on earth doesn’t require loving everyone. It does, however, require tolerance of others. Peace on earth doesn’t mean the darkness is eliminated. That comes a hundred thousand years into the future, when we are all Masters.
Even when peace on earth comes, there will still be division and darkness. BUT, a tipping point will have been reached in human consciousness. The vast majority of people will understand that fighting the darkness will just recreate the duality, thus reasserting the old “good versus evil” paradigm.
Good and evil isn’t a natural law. It’s a human-made meme. It comes from being unable to understand what free will is. Free will means you can think and do anything. Fascists, communists, dictators, and sociopaths throughout history object to this because it interferes with their agendas. They think there’s one right way. Their way. That road is paved with 100% failure, killing, misery, and death.
It’s a lot to ask just to be tolerant. But it’s a lot easier than trying to love everyone, particularly when others do nasty things to others, and to the planet, that seem outrageous to you.
The first step to peace on earth is understanding free will and its unlimited sanction to create your own life. The second is recognizing that other people have free will just like you. This can be summed up by a simple statement: Tolerating the actions of others is essential to happiness because – just like at the football game – the higher power is not going to intervene on your behalf.
If you don’t get this then you have to make others comply with your agenda, and that’s an impossible task that just creates more human misery.
