Are You Choosing the Game of Unity or Separation?
Divide and conquer strategy is proven to be effective in defeating the strongest countries. It breaks the most loving families, and dis-empowers the strongest leaders…
How is this relevant to you?
Most compassionate people split their energy out of good intention, but end up suffering as the result. You’ll understand HOW as you read this.
Divide and conquer wouldn’t be so effective if it was obvious. It always starts as a noble cause, which seems to be fair and important…
“Let’s put minorities in power” – this idea was used by Germany to rule Rwanda and Burundi in colonial capacity. They created a divide between Tutsi and Hutu which resulted in a continuous genocide. While this example of Africa may seem far-fetched, here are some causes that may be familiar to you:
“Women have been abused, they need protection” (aka #metoo) or
“Weapons have killed people they need to be destroyed” or
“Drugs cause addiction, they need to be forbidden”…
No one in their right mind would argue that these causes are worth addressing. That’s why it’s very easy to gather people in large quantities to support the causes
There is always something or someone to be blamed for the perpetuation of the “cause”…. and here lies the TRAP:
The real problem remains hidden while an attack is launched on something on the surface which is easy to blame.
Primitive logic says:
“People die from gun shots – guns are the problem
Women get abused by men – men are the problem”…etc.
Taking a pill may temporarily remove a headache, however, the pill is addressing the symptom, not he cause.
Both problems mentioned above as an example, are the outcomes of emotional pain and accumulated trauma, which cause people to act violently. Yet, it’s overlooked what drives people to behave adversely. Instead, there is a resistance rising against the behavior itself, which can merely suppress it, but not eliminate or prevent it.
The Divide and Conquer on a Personal Level Happens When:
While people are fighting an EXTERNAL “enemy”, they are in a state of INTERNAL WAR.
An “enemy” is thereby given a power by the very person or people who are fighting against it. And the war becomes self-fueled and self-perpetuated. And even if one “enemy” seems to fall dead, a new army of “enemies” arises.
People are breeding their own enemies while running away from them or trying to wrestle them to the ground.
“What you resist persists” says it.
No matter if which reason is used for resistance and separation, it always creates more resistance.
Fear creates more fear
A need for protection creates more need for protection
… you get the point
External peace cannot be created by someone who is in the state of internal war…
Focusing on what you WANT for yourself and others yields vastly different results than fighting against what you don’t want.
Giving all of your attention to what you choose and appreciate creates more of it.
The common questions that arise are:
How can we just ignore people’s suffering?
How do we prevent something tragic from happening again, if we don’t address it?
If we forget about the history, then we’re not learning from it…
WHAT IF… painful experiences were there to create an opportunity to choose?
WHAT IF… there was a GIFT in every adversity?
WHAT IF… nothing was wrong with our world or its people?
And whatever you choose to see as “wrong” with the world or people, you’re inevitably co-creating.
This does not mean being meek or a pushover. This means staying in your TRUTH regardless of what others do or think around you.
This means making your choices without disapproving other people’s choices
This means honoring everyone’s right to choose for themselves, even if they choose suffering
And acknowledging that everyone is equally powerful and equally privileged in the eyes of the CREATION. No one is inherently deprived or weaker than anyone else.
When you’re priding yourself with being philanthropic or giving, the Beings who receive your generosity willingly place themselves into a position of perceived disadvantage so that you have an opportunity to experience yourself as kind and generous…. This way both experience mutual care and love through giving and receiving.
If there was no one ready to receive, giving would not be possible
If there were no diseases, healing would not be possible
If there was no hunger, satisfaction from a meal would not be possible
There is duality to everything.
Accepting ALL aspects of creation is an art of ultimate harmony.
I will stand for health, prosperity, safety, kindness, joy, bliss, ecstasy, miracles, freedom, love….
And I won’t join any protests….
And even me making the latter statement and writing this post puts me slightly in resistance to the concept of protests or separation itself.
At the same time, I’m human, playing the same game as everyone else. often forgetting who I am, believing in the illusion and feeling the pain of it.
Yet, the moment I RE-MEMBER with all there is, my freedom is reclaimed
As part of our human experience, we chose to forget, who I AM…. (incorrect grammar is purposeful here…)
And the game we came to play is to reclaim who I AM in the midst of illusion of separation.
Next time you feel like protesting against anything, USE YOUR ANGER to fuel your action towards your desires and dreams, not for fights.
