Dear Ones,

Shall it be atheism or communion with God? … Also, parliamentary process as compared to honing of alternatives in lively, but detached debate. An edited Summary follows the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

Well, so, this morning, on the astral internet, there was a theological discussion, and it was so cool! Theological discussion is one of my favorite things, because it goes straight to the source of reality … of who we are and what our purpose is in life.

And it answers the big questions, you know? The huge questions. So, I recently came upon a group of people who are very learned in their way of discussing it. And I would say the way that they do it is better, even, than what they call the parliamentary process, where everyone has a chance to state their point of view. And everyone votes on that. And then that becomes the way that things are for people.

The way that they do it is highly respectful, and very insightful … very learned. Very cool. A very cool what might be called ‘Soul resonance’ when they discuss. I have a feeling that they way that they do that … is it called ‘elocution’? … that way of talking, is going to be close to the way that we people of New Earth relate to each other in harmony, and make decisions about what vision we want for Earth, and for the children of Earth, and for the future of Earth, and so forth.

Setting all that aside, let me get down to the point that was made this morning. I had made a point … I remember the exact day. It was maybe 20 years ago … My good friend at the time, he had a friend who was an atheist … an absolute atheist. And I was experiencing ecstatic states of union with God. And so, my point of view was completely different from this person’s point of view.

And so, we were all sitting down for lunch, right? And so, the topic came up: Is there a God? This person’s name was Charlie. He and I were talking it over. And he said:

Prove to me that there is a God! 

You cannot say that there is a God … There is no proof; it was like that. So I just waited for an answer, for a minute.

And the thing that came out … you have heard of this … was this

When a fish is swimming in the water, it doesn’t know that there’s water there. That’s just its home … Its home is the water. 

And in the same way: Here we are in physical form, swimming in God. And we just don’t know it, because God is all around us. Everything that we see, is God. And we are part of God.

And I remember, Charlie got really aggravated over that, because it’s the kind of response where the logical mind cannot step in, you know? He is still kind of mulling it over in the back of his mind right now, 20 years later, I suspect … I’m sorry, Charlie, I didn’t mean to upset you!

So anyway, this morning that topic came up again. And I started out with the argument I had offered Charlie. And another person on the astral plane added a refinement; they honed the talk.

I do not know the exact words to use, but you start with a proposition, and you either prove it or disprove it. And along the way, as you are coming up with what is more true, you hone the details of the truth. Ok?

So, on the astral plane, what this other person said … which I thought was very wise, was this …

In the same way that a fish doesn’t know that it’s in the water, unless there’s a little ripple in the water that it can sense,  we humans don’t know that we’re within God, unless God sends us a ripple of grace, through the Holy Spirit. 

That’s pretty cool, huh? So, we feel the grace, just like, back at the time when Charlie and I conversed, I was feeling this wonderful presence of God, through the incoming grace … the Divine grace of the Holy Spirit. And that is how I knew! That’s how I knew what to say to Charlie. And that’s how I knew that there was a God.

And so, I am very grateful for this astral talk this morning, that clued me in to quite a bit. I hope there are many such discussions in the future …

Not only about whether or not God exists, and whether or not we are feeling the influx of grace into our hearts and into our reality … into our families, and into our communities, and into our nations, and all over Earth. Whether we are feeling Christ’s love coming in, and touching us, and lighting our lives.

But also, the nuts and bolts: What are we going to do? What are we going to do about better education for children? What are we going to do about wise leadership for the world? What are we going to do about careful husbanding of the resources of this planet? And so forth …

All those questions can be dealt with in the same way: With that kind of Soul resonance, that kind of wisdom. Seeking the truth; seeking the real nature of things; finding out the true solution to things. Rather than standing within ourselves and saying: This is the way it has to be! [laughs]

Because where we are … in the Now … the way it has to be, changes on a dime. Changes in a second flat. And we, ourselves, have to be poised … like a skater on an ice rink … Ready to change. Ready to whirl around. Ready to stop on a dime. You know what I mean?

It is really exhilarating. I am very glad to be alive now. And I am very glad that you are sharing this journey with me.

Talk to you later!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

The below video is about the shadow of the personality and the shadow of the group. There is an introduction on signs and portents, and on the draining of batteries.

Beneath the video are an edited Summary. After that is an Outline of the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I have quite an interesting story for you about the shadow of the personality and the shadow of the group, coming up in this particular video. But I thought first it might be interesting to talk about the portents and the signs that I experienced right before and right after doing this video, as it was rather stellar.

Alice’s Perilous Tales

The Near Head-on Collision. I had the notion … and I was driving down the street, looking for a quiet place to do this video. I was going to turn into the parking lot of a shopping center … I thought that might do. And I turned into the middle lane, the central lane, with the hope of turning left into the parking lot.

Right after I did that, a man traveling in the adjacent lane, but in the other direction, decided to pass around a car that was in that lane by illegally entering the center lane, and then speeding back up, and going back in, having passed that person.

In turning into the center lane, he turned directly into where I was. And at the time that he realized that I was there, what he needed to do was to stop his car, there in the center lane. But instead he decided to go back into the center lane, and there was a car there, so he could not get through.

Fortunately that car noticed that there was about to be an accident, as this man moved into an adjacent lane to avoid me; and he decelerated just in time for that man not to hit me and not to hit him.

So that was a near miss, and it is a portent. It is a portent that you are stirring up the Satan world … the black magic world … and you are changing things in the electromagnetics of the ‘shadow’ … and that you should watch out for your own welfare and so forth at that moment.

The Draining of My Car Battery During the Filming of the Video. When you change the dynamics of Duality … even if it is with journalling or a blog … there are unexpected things that happen; that was one of them. Here is the next one …

I turned into the parking lot. I parked my car, and I started to record the video. What happened then was that I heard in my mind someone saying: Don’t do that. Don’t do that. Don’t do that.

When I hear that sort of astral chatter, I assess what it is that is causing that admonition. I have heard it before. Typically it happens when the power of the Dark is broached … when the power of the Dark feels threatened in this Duality. And in this instance I felt that to be the case too.\

Next, in my heart chakra I felt a ‘knifing’ … I felt a pulling out, a ‘knifing’ outward, of the energy … that ‘something else’ was pulling out the front funnel of my heart chakra. In the astral realm, this ‘something else’ could be interpreted as negative astral entities.

I felt this pulling out of that energy … pulling out this way [left hand motions horizontally outward from center of chest] … and then I felt the battery of the car drain. The car was stopped.

Electronics Malfunctions as Indicators that a Hologram Changeup Is Taking Place. I finished the video, and then I tried to turn on the car, and the battery, that had been working fine before, would no longer work. This draining of batteries is something that happens when there are changeups in the illusions; whether in your own personal hologram, or in the whole Earth hologram, or in the galactic hologram … wherever, there are issues with batteries draining.

It could be the battery of your watch. It could be your cell phone stops working for awhile. It could be your television (I assume … as I do not watch television), or your computer. I have had computers go off for awhile too.

I recall one day during an X-flare when three phones stopped working … two mobile phones and the land line … and the computer … all at once! But the car worked. And on the occasion I am describing in this blog, it was the car that stopped working, but the camcorder worked.

What that means is that there is a big changeup happening; it is like a software change. It is like an upgrade on a computer, when everything goes into ‘downtime’; you just cannot get anything done.

And in this case the drain of the battery … you know, I do not know the answer to this yet. But many other people have noticed that this happens. For instance, here is another person’s video that mentions how a process of transformation of dark energy to love (in this case by means of a crystal grid, but in my work, through the power of the heart chakra) drains energy from batteries …

Video: “Adam, The Crystal Grid Maker – Diamond Triangle Grid,” by Danielle Garcia, 11 October 2012 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gATikM_3Sds

Thus I feel it is better to do transformational work away from batteries (and electronics) …

Mind Mud and Anger Amongst personnel at an Auto Parts Store. To continue: I could not get the car going, so I got a jump, and I went to an auto parts store. There I had great difficulty. There was a ‘mind mud’ thing going on, both with the people there, and with my intention to resolve this issue. There was anger in the air, also, on the part of other people.

Summary of That Day’s Portents and Omens. So these were three separate signs that something important was going on …

  • The near head-on-collision with an aggressive driver 
  • The draining of my car battery during the filming of the video, and
  • Mind mud and anger amongst personnel at the auto parts store

The Geostorm That Followed on the Heels of These Portents. Then the next day a big geostorm came in; it is still happening right now [26 October 2016], although it has subsided greatly. A lot is going on …

Subsequent research has led me to propose that dynamic changes in Earth’s magnetosphere, such as those that take place during geostorms, may cause optic nerve impulse anomalies that result in unusual visual input …

Link: “Do Geostorms Cause Sensations of Pain and Visual Hallucinations in Human Beings?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 3 June 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-d0U ..

That might account for anecdotes about ‘mind mud’ and ‘cognitive dysfunction’ during Solar Events, and also for anecdotes about visions of higher dimensions during those times. Whether these visions are true, from the perspective of greater Incoming Light being available to our planet during geostorms, or whether they are hallucinations, is another topic, which I feel to be worthy of investigation …

Link: “Alternate Realities: Are They Real?” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 7 October 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-ept ..

From my own stance, the visions that people have while Solar Events are taking place … whether negative or positive in nature … have remarkable cross-cultural similarities. Why would this be? Have the similarities to do with the structure of the human brain? Or have they to do with the structure of the Universe? Do the perceptions of the human brain reflect the structure of the Universe? These are questions for one far wiser than I … Perhaps that person is you, dear reader!

……….

Here is the portion of the video that I filmed in the parking lot …

I have a topic to discuss right now; it is possible it will be developed more on a future date. This has to do with some of the opposing energies … the ‘shadow’ energies that are opposing right now on Earth, and are about to disengage.

The Shadow of the Personality

First I would like to talk about ‘shadow’ energies. You may have heard of the ‘shadow of the personality’. This is the subconscious and the unconscious energies of one human being’s energy field; the ‘shadow of the personality’. That is to say, those emotional energies that are not socially acceptable; emotions that are negative, and thoughts that are negative or antisocial, and that typically are repressed on most people … although not in all. So we have the shadow of the personality.

The Shadow of the Group

And then also we have the glomming with groups that is going on right now. The glomming has to do with emotions as well. And so we have gloms of emotions that are negative … certain energy threads that are negative. And these I call the ‘shadow of the group’.

As the Awakening proceeds, the energies of the shadow of the groups are coming to the surface, because groups are not totally ungrouping. If people were to ungroup from groups, then there would not be a glom of the shadows of the groups.

But as it is, many people are sticking with the familiar notion of being in a group, and so there are these shadows of the group that are interacting with the shadows of other groups.

When we have a group that has a natural antipathy toward, or hatred for another group, we have a kind of a ‘tangle’ … a kind of a ‘tango’ … if the other group hates that group in the same way.

One such ‘tango’ that I spoke of recently had to do with the shadow of Islam (which has been much promoted in the news media) as opposed to the shadow of Judaism (which has not been brought so much to the Light, until I did a blog recently, to do with religious fanaticism …

Link: “Disclosure and the Fate of Religious Radical Extremists,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 5 October 2016; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-6dd ..

If people were to unglom from groups, then we would not have the shadow of the group; but as it is, many people are sticking with the groups, and group shadows will need to be dealt with.

Latitude as a Factor in Group Gloms

Lots of times group gloms have to do with latitude; they have, I feel, to do with electrical energy on Earth. And so, somehow or other, these groups will be on the same latitude, or on similar latitudes, and they will have a natural antipathy; that is to say, on the unconscious and subconscious level … on a repressed level … and not so much talked about on the social plane, you see; or sometimes so. [Then follow comments that have been moved to above.]

Vatican City – Washington DC Latitudinal Glom

Along those lines, I have another kind of religious issue to discuss with you: I have yet to check the latitudes, but I feel that there is a glom between the Vatican, in Italy, and Washington DC.

The glom is fairly close in latitude, but not the same; DC is at 38.9072° N, and Vatican City is at 41.9029° N. This glom is disappearing, but it needs to be brought to the Light, and looked at with the conscious Awareness, in order for that to happen.

This glom has two black magic counter-weights: The Black Mass and the Black Magic Secret Service (the ‘Shadow Secret Service’). The former, the Black Mass, has to do with refusal to submit to the authority of the Pope and the Vatican, and is aligned with the energy of the Knights Templar. The latter, the Black Magic Secret Service has to do with individuality, refusal to submit to authority, and the notion of the many freedoms that we have as Americans. Here is more on each …

The Black Mass. You may have heard about the ‘Black Mass’. This is a black magic ritual that is used to discredit the Holy Mass that takes place in the Catholic Church. It is a black magic ritual that was, I think, first devised by Catholics who had some difficulty with the rulership, the Vatican. And so it was devised by Catholics as a means of discrediting the authority there.

And the feeling that was there … the feeling of hatred, or of desiring to undo other people … the desire to undercut other people; the desire to do them harm … that feeling made the Black Mass and the people who participated in it … like the Knights Templar … transformed them to the shadow of that group, of Catholicism.

Right now in the United States, as the noosphere is clearing, there is a great upwelling of black magic to do with the disappearance of the negative astral beings that I have discussed in many blogs in past years. What is left is the noospheric detritus from their tenancy on Earth during the long Age of Darkness that ended in 2012. In group gloms, the shadow represents the black magic detritus of the group, and the clearing taking place is the clearing of the shadow, of the black magic.

United States: A Provincial Outlook on World Policy. There are vast skeins of dark energy here in the United States, to do with individuality … refusal to submit to authority. This, in a way, is fundamental to the American way of life, this notion of freedom, and the many freedoms we have as Americans.

But there is a dark side to this. I think this has to do with the notion that we Americans have the right way of doing things, and that is far superior to that of other countries, and so therefore we have the right to offer a kind of patriarchal influence on the world that will provide other countries with a better way of life … but that does not necessarily take into consideration their free will, as peoples, to organize and develop their own country notions. So there has been a kind of provincial lack of understanding of the free will of other peoples to create countries and their own notion of how it should be.

Of course, in addition to an idealistic notion about the actions of a country, there is also the ‘shadow’ notion. And that notion has in this case to do with commercial interests, corporate interests, and so forth. And so from time to time there are ‘pinpoint strikes’ and other small force invasions, and military presences in other countries that are intended to promote our image in the world and also our commercial interests.

The Black Magic Secret Service (‘Shadow Secret Service’). This is not unusual; there are many nations that do this; but it is important for me to mention it in connection with the glom effect, because in a way … through our intelligence community, for instance … we are extending ourselves through the world in our own interests, but also what is considered to be the interests of humankind, because of our notion that our way is best, right? And it is best for us Americans.

So there is a notion of controlling others. And during the process of the Awakening, this notion has, to some extent, inverted and turned into a notion of controlling American citizens instead. Jade Helm, for instance, is an example of that kind of momentary inversion … I think to do with anxiety over the great changes that are taking place in the noosphere during the clearing.

Along with this has come up a notion that I call the ‘Black Magic Secret Service’ (or the ‘Shadow Secret Service’). This is, I think, a play on the astral term ‘black ops’. It is sometimes expressed in other terms, such as ‘Black Magic CIA’, ‘Black Magic Homeland Security’, ‘Black Magic Interpol’ and so forth.

On the clair plane, this energy of the Black Magic Secret Service seems to be very opposed to the Vatican energy. It is an energy that seems to stand for all the things the Vatican does not stand for … such as, for instance, abortion; the right to abuse, rape and kill women;  and until recently, the right to be homosexual; the right to have an atheistic or pagan point of view; and the right to practice black magic.

And so, in terms of dogma, this energy is more aligned with the Knights Templar in regard to serving Baal or some other form of Satan, and opposing the energy of Catholicism and of the real-life Secret Service. In other words, this energy represents the shadow of a large world group, in the same way that the shadow of the personality represents the energies we set aside and repress as unacceptable to our fellow man.

So we have these two strands of energy that are clearing right now: The Black Mass, and the Black Magic Secret Service (‘Shadow Secret Service’). Neither of these is truth in the current reality.

Conclusion

Right now, I am not trying to take any kind of temporal action … any kind of physical action. I am just pointing out the noospheric existence of these two strands, and hoping that the people involved … such as, for example, the Catholic community; and on the other side, the Secret Service community … will just take a look at their own emotional structure, and find the portions of emotion that are negative, and work with eliminating that, so that their organizations can successfully accomplish the good aims that they have in mind for the world.

That is my thought on this. I hope I have not upset anyone. I hope that everyone will go well with this clearing, and be at heart’s ease with it, and find true happiness and joy with it. You all take care with your emotional clearing, and your expected outcome of emotional honesty and continuity with the Eternal Now.

OUTLINE OF THE VIDEO

First there is a discussion of the portents before, during, and after the making of this video …

  • A near head-on-collision with an aggressive driver in the opposite flow of traffic (a sign that the dynamics of the Satan world, the shadow world, and the power of the Dark are changing)
  • The draining of my car battery during the filming (along with a discussion of batteries draining during changeups in the illusion and in the power of the dark during the Awakening), and
  • Mind mud and anger amongst personnel at an auto parts store

And now, on to the information that was the occasion of these portents; information to do with the shadow of the personality and of the group.

When we have a group that has a natural antipathy for another group, we have a tangle; especially if that group returns the feeling of hostility.

If people were to un-glom from groups, then we would not have the shadow of the group; but as it is, many people are sticking with the groups, and group shadows will need to be dealt with.

As the astral beings negative have cleared from Earth, what remains to be cleared is the noospheric black magic detritus of their tenancy on Earth. In group gloms, the shadow represents the black magic detritus of the group, and the clearing taking place is the clearing of the shadow, of the black magic.

In the video, I suggest there is a group glom between Washington, DC and Vatican City. The glom is fairly close in latitude, but not the same; DC is at 38.9072° N, and Vatican City is at 41.9029° N. This glom has two black magic counter-weights: The Black Mass and the Black Magic Secret Service.

The former, the Black Mass, had to do with refusal to submit to the authority of the Pope and the Vatican, and is aligned with the energy of the Knights Templar.

The latter, the Black Magic Secret Service (perhaps related to the term ‘Black Ops’) has to do with individuality, refusal to submit to authority, and the notion of the many freedoms that we have as Americans. The dark side to this is the thought that we American have the right way of doing things, and so therefore we have the right to offer a patriarchal influence on the Earth.

In past this has caused, to some extent, the feeling that we are controlling, or attempting to control, peoples beyond our borders.

In recent times, there has been an occasional inversion of this energy thread, so that it has turned into a notion of controlling American citizens instead. The public perception of Jade Helm is an example of this.

On the clair plane, this energy of the Black Magic Secret Service (or ‘Black Ops’) seems to oppose everything that the Vatican stands for: Such as abortion, until recently the right to be homosexual, the right to sexually abuse children, the right to abuse, rape and kill women, the right to have an atheistic or pagan point of view, and the right to practice black magic. So, in terms of dogma, this energy stands more with the Knights Templar in terms of serving Baal, or some other form of Satan, and opposes the energy of Catholicism and of the real-life Secret Service. In other words, this energy represents the shadow of a large world group, in the same way that the shadow of the personality represents the energies we set aside and repress as unacceptable to our fellow man.

I am hoping that those in the Catholic community and those in the Secret Service community will look to their own groups, and find the shadow energies they feel at ease to clear, so that they each may proceed well with the Awakening process.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I thought I would talk just for a moment today about religious freedom and religious tolerance in the world today. And I would like to compare two different examples of that …

Astral Story about a United States ‘Weapon of War’ to Destroy People of Islamic Faith

One is complete fantasy: It was an astral story that I heard the other day … actually, a very terrifying astral story. But fortunately, because of my timeline shifting skills, I was able to get out of it pretty quickly, without pondering it too deeply. Nevertheless, in retrospect, I think it had a good lesson for me.

The astral story went like this: There was a thought that there was a type of weapon of war that the United States could employ, in the fight against the people of Islamic faith that have that point of view of doing just about anything to uphold their religion … and who are willing to resort to violence in order to do so.

On Islam and Faith in the One God. First I would like to say that my understanding of the Islamic faith is that those people are very much in the minority of all the people, worldwide, who have that faith.

And second, I would like to say that I went, two times, in Los Angeles to a place that was explaining the Islamic faith. There they had people who were Islamic, and other people, like me, who were just learning about the Islamic faith. And there they taught a saying, or prayer, that many Muslims, people of Islamic faith, say all day long, every day … all of their waking hours.

And the prayer went like this: La illah el Allahtraditional meaning: There is no god but Allah. You may have heard of it. It is pretty famous. The feeling that I got from it … although it might not be quite literal, is like this: Allah, of course, is their name for God. And the feeling that I got from the saying is that Allah, or God, is all that is. So another translation of the prayer might be: There is no god but God … meaning that all the ‘gods’ of this world are laid low by their love of the one God who created and sustains all that is.

And they would feel that prayer, and say it with their hearts all day long. And I got to thinking: Wow! What an incredible spiritual practice, for people to remember God every day, all day! Do you not think?

On Christianity, and Walking with Christ. Now we of Christian faith, we might have our own way of doing it. We might call it walking with Christ … imagining that Christ is with us, in His great compassion, walking by our side all day long. And that is our way of doing it.

America Was Founded on the Principle of Freedom from Religious Freedom. We here in America … This country was founded by spiritual, religious refugees who were not able to practice their own faith in their own land. And they came to America, despite the great peril of the journey across the ocean, and the hardships that would face them … in many cases, death; death both of the grownups and of the children … many perils that would face them in their new life in America because, with their deepest hearts, they wished for spiritual freedom.

So this is the cornerstone; this is the purpose of America in the world: To represent freedom of thought, freedom of expression, freedom of religion. The greatest liberty that a person can have, and still be in accord with the needs of the community around him, without hurting anyone else … the most liberty that he or she can have. So there is that.

Timeline Shift to Escape from the Astral Story of the ‘Weapon of War’. Now back to the astral story, a horrible astral story! And it went like this: There was a weapon of war that had been designed, in the fight against the Islamic extremists, that would target anyone who worshiped God in that way, and destroy them … that would home in on the mini-noospheric thought wave of that person who was repeating in his heart: La illah el Allah … La illah el Allah … and destroy him.

This was the thought: That we would destroy someone because of their religious belief. And immediately I said: I am getting out of this astral story! … And I optimized my timelines, and I got out. You know? … Because that is not for me. Liberty and justice for all: That is for me.

That notion is a kind of a fear-based notion, that people of other religions might represent a threat to us, you know? … That any religion might be anti-American. To think of that! Just to think of that!

To my way of thinking, all religions are welcome in America. People of all creeds, all faiths; people of all races are free in America. You know? That is how I see America.

Legends of the Sikhs of India

Sikh Faith Compared to Islamic and Hindu Faiths. Now I am going to take a story from about 500 years ago, I think it was, from ancient India … well, not too ancient; not modern, though. At that time, there were a group of people called the Sikhs. Sikhism was a very unusual religion, because it had some qualities of the Islamic faith, which believed in only one God, Allah. And it had some qualities of the Hindu faith, which was also very prevalent in India at that time.

The Hindus, in contrast, worshipped God in many different aspects. Hinduism is considered, in these modern days, as being a polytheistic religion … having many gods.

So the Sikhs came along. The Sikhs believed in one God. And they also offered, in their morning prayer, the “Japji Sahib,” a variant of that belief that was in line with the Hindu teachings. And the feeling was … as I understand it … that there were those people who related more to the polytheistic notion of God; and there were other people who understood and were in Soul resonance with the monotheistic notion. Somehow or other they combine both notions.

SIkhs: Respect for Women. The Sikhs, the highest point in their history, I felt, had to do with their support of respect for women, which was unheard of in that time. There was a wonderful prayer that was in the Sikh prayer books about why we should respect women. I loved it …

Link: “SIri Guru Granth Sahib,” page 473 … http://www.srigurugranth.org/0473.html … Search the passage beginning: First Mehl

To paraphrase, that passage conveys this meaning: Where would men be, without women? How might they be born, except through the labor pangs of a mother?

How might they be married, except to a woman? Who might be their lifelong friend, except their wife? And without her, how might the future generations of humankind be born? 

Should a man’s wife pass on, will he not seek another wife? To this wife, shall he not be bound, as it was with the first wife, that he loved?

Why, then, would any man call a woman bad? Even a king is born of woman. Every woman is born of a woman. There would be no one on Earth, were it not for woman … no one at all.

Nanak, the great wise teacher of the Sikhs, declares: It is only God who has no need of a woman. Let us praise the blessed and beautiful True Lord, who lights up our faces in his Great Court. –“Siri Guru Granth Sahib,” page 478

Sikhs: Protecting People of Other Faiths. In addition to this respect for women, they also believed in protecting people of other faiths, and standing up against and fighting against injustice anywhere in the world. There were very brave, courageous men in that group.

There came a time when the Muslims … I think it was the Muslims of the Mughal Empire … took over India. Now I am not speaking against the Muslims here; I am just giving an example … The Muslims required that all the Hindus be converted to the Islamic faith at that time. They would capture Hindus, as I recall, and if they would not convert, they would feed them to the emperor’s dogs, or execute them in other awful ways.

Now this story is not really about Hindus and Muslims. It is about freedom to worship as we will. And the Sikhs saw it in that manner. Though they were very few in number, they aligned themselves with the Mind and Heart and Will of God … the one God that they believed in … and they fought, one against 1,000, or 10,000, in protest against the emperor’s very cruel policy. And so they were all wiped out … They were wiped out for the concept of religious freedom.

On Upholding the Principle of Religious Tolerance

I would just like you to take a look at those two examples of a way to live a life … you know? Do we live in fear of other people who are different from us? Do we threaten to destroy people, just because they are different? Or are we accepting of differences … or even willing to defend, with our last breath, the liberty of each person to worship as they will?

Many religious wars have been fought, down through history. So I am not against the Muslims because of the things that happened in the time of the Mughal Empire. 

The one story, above, was in favor of the Muslim faith being able to worship as it will; the other story was in favor of the Hindu faith being able to worship as it will. And I might add, in these days of atheism, the importance of allowing people of the Christian faith, in the United States, to express themselves as Christians in the world today.

God bless and keep you all. Love you lots! …

On Separating the Concept of Violence from That of Discrimination Against Religions

Wouldn’t you know it, I have a postscript. And this has to do with violence and religion. I think we need to separate the issues of violence and religion. To my way of thinking, violence expressed through religion is not religion … but rather, like a dark strand of energy that is sometimes mixed up with religious belief.

You know, the Christian faith went to the Crusades with a strand like that, long ago … a strand of Darkness that included violence and war. And I think probably every religion has dealt with this issue of violence within it.

But all religions tend towards the Light. The purpose of religions is to tend towards the love and Light that are the Universe, and that God expresses through the Universe.

So this issue of violence, I think is a separate thing. People are entitled to believe what they wish. But violence is a crime against the world community. That is how I feel. So in our own minds, when we say: This terrorist activity must stop … we are not speaking to religion. We are speaking to terrorism. You know what I mean?

You are welcome to disagree with me. Food for thought! Love you all.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — “Constitution of the United States,” public domain (1)

THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF SIKHISM

Here are the basic principles of the Sikh religion:

  • securing justice for humankind, whether social, political, economic, or religious
  • safeguarding the fundamental rights of humankind
  • protecting the saints; uprooting the wicked
  • guaranteeing dignity and equality for all humankind
  • maintaining peaceful co-existence among all religions

Their principles caused the Sikhs to fight against the Mughal Regime in India, as it was violating human rights and causing massacre of the innocents. The upshoot was the establishment of a sovereign, independent Sikh State.

The Sikhs had come into contact with these Afghan and Mughal invaders as the invaders passed through the Punjab … the Sikh homeland … on their way to invade Delhi, India. The Sikhs were greatly outnumbered, but their spirits were aligned with God’s plan for Earth. Their noble cause was based on social and moral responsibility toward humankind. And so, they were willing to lay down their lives for their God. The resultant struggle and victory is an uplifting example for all the world. –adapted from http://americanpunjabinews.com/files/Chapter-7.pdf ..
