FOR YOUR CONTEMPLATION: INDIFFERENCE AS THE ESSENCE OF INHUMANITY


Dare to join your planetary sister in actively creating an inner consciousness where indifference, cruelty, hate, racism, intolerance, arrogance, contempt for other, and injustice of every type; is to be amazed at and wondered of - not accepted or shrugged off as part of the social norm.

Your planetery sister understands it is challenging and difficult work to change your perceptual planetary reality when society has silently, insidiously, installed perceptual filters in your consciousness and defined for you what are the acceptable cultural/ethnic norms.

How many will come to this blog and think in some form or manner that your planetary sister is a little too sensitive, or is getting upset about things that occur in our society which are accepted as being "just the way it is", or just a part of the planetary social consciousness?

As planetary beings we are meant to be so much more than we are.

And the mechanism for planetary change is located in the heart of the planetary vehicle we all use for time-space travel -- the planetary body.




"I wanted to change the world.

But I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself."

--Aldous Huxley



Quote: "Indifference is the essence of humanity" is from the work of George Bernard Shaw who lived from 1865 to 1950. I know, I know, this darker side of planetary consciousness has been around for as long as we have been embodying as human beings on this planet. There have been and continue to be, so many who bring the same message of compassion for 'other' and the need and joy of planetary interconnectedness, to us. They have come in many forms, as the Holy Ones (holy ones), (P)prophets, the humanists, the intellectuals; for thousands of years on this planet, they have conveyed the same message in the many different ways planetary beings have needed to help them heal and evolve in consciousness.


For your Contemplation:

The Human Family - An Idea Whose Time Has Come by Julie Redstone

Expanding the Spehere of the Heart by Julie Redstone


Julie Redstone is your planetary sisters Spiritual Teacher. I give credit to at least of 70% of the things I write on this blog to be directly influenced by her teachings and my tutorship with her for the last 12+ years. I give 100% credit to my soul for the way I see/perceive/live my life on this planet. This consciousness was already in me, as it is in you my planetary brothers and sisters. It always has been, it always will be. All we need to do is remember the "truth" of who we are and then live it.

peace

RACISIM 101: RACISM AND 'REPORTING' CRIME: CROSSING THE LINE ETHICALLY AND MORALLY IN THE NAME OF RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION


Wow.

I found the following quotes (in black type) from a NOLA website who purports to be a righteous NOLA citizen just trying to help... "With this information, citizens hopefully can take precautions against becoming a victim." And that they are just "Chronicling some of the recent crimes in the heart of New Orleans..."

Your planetary sister is deeply troubled by what she read on this website - the trifecta of racial self-righteousness, dehumanization of other, and cruel indifference based on racisim .

Wow... I just can't believe that someone would really think that cloaking their racism and hate in the name of righteous indignation would somehow give them a free pass for their ethical and moral corruptness. The racial hate I took in was so intense. The racial innuendo's, the racial profiling, all so very troubling.


The italics are the author's.

Since we can't give you the punks' names or show you their pictures because
they're juveniles (wouldn't want to scar the little dears for life),
here are their descriptions: one was a skinny dude, 5'10" tall and weighing 130
pounds; the other was a little pipsqueak, 5' tall and weighing 100 pounds. And,
yes, at least one of them was wearing a "hoodie". Remember: "See a hoodie,
report a hoodlum.
" One was from Baton Rouge (your mama know you're down
here robbing white folk?
);

The victims flagged down a passing police car and pointed out a gang of
young punks running across N. Rampart Street. Police officers on foot pursued
the miscreants into the Iberville Housing Development (doesn't it warm your
heart to know we provide a refuge for the less-fortunate
?)

--If you are not from New Orleans, the Iberville is one of the few public housing areas actually open.

--The majority population in the Iberville, is composed of Black New Orleanians, hence the racial innuendo.



If someone wants the address of the sight where this came from e-mail me (your planetary sisters e-mail address is on the sidebar) and I'll send you the link.

Otherwise, the name of the awful website where these horrible quotes came from, is not going to benefit (by having their site linked to mine and getting extra traffic from search engines). Nor does your planetary sister want to be forever linked in cyber space to a website which she finds morally and ethically corrupt.




“Everybody comes from the same source.
If you hate another human being, you're hating part of yourself.”
