I exult in the new law signed by Governor Newsom that puts some spine in California penalties for child trafficking.

. . . .
“Treachery of the eyes” according to the Qur’an 40:19 … occurs when, in private, a person views pornography or feels lust towards another person. These are actions of which a person might feel ashamed if someone else were to know of them.
Treachery of the eyes is quite the fashion on the internet today. Many people suffer from addiction to pornography, for instance. Some adults seduce young children. These adults may wear masks, and film these acts, and sell the film online.
When this happens to children, then every time someone watches the film in which the act was performed, the mind of the watching person sends thought forms filled with lust into the minds of these children.
The minds of these unfortunate children are filled up with the trashy thoughts of the porn viewers. As children, they may lack the skill to toss out the offending foreign thoughts and replace them with their own good thoughts. If this is the case, then the children’s minds become like a city dump, full of trash.
Children to whom this awful thing happens grow up with the challenge to clear out the trash thoughts that have been poured into their minds. They have quite a job before them … one upon which they must place an effort and exert their will to live pure, clean lives every day, until the bad karma that has come to them can be reversed.
Everyone has a chance to live a good and pure life. It is important not to despair, but to face this challenge … to face this adverse circumstance … as a child might need to face any other adversity in life.
For instance, a child might find he or she must leave earthly life at a young age. Yet the child might, through cultivating a cheerful state of mind, confront this great adversity in the best way possible, and so the child might offer a wonderful example for his or her family … an example of facing very bad circumstances with courage, and with a happy heart.
In the same way, the awful adversity of being a child victim of sex trafficking can be reversed, although not without steady effort on the part of the child.
Because I see, through clair vision, the awful impact of child porn on the mind and on the emotions of the preyed-upon child … an impact almost universally not understood in today’s society … I deeply rejoiced in reading that California Governor Newsom four days ago signed a law to make commercial sex trafficking of a child into a serious felony.
This law goes into effect on 1 January 2024. On that day, child trafficking will become a “three strikes” offense, which can lead to longer prison terms, and even sometimes to life imprisonment when a child trafficker is caught.
My deepest, heartfelt thanks to Governor Newsom for this change in emphasis of California law. I am certain our common good has been rightly analyzed and addressed.
In love, light and joy,
