Middle East and Humanity Now

Apr 08, 2006 09:22 AM

Sufilight,

I cannot disagree with anything you wrote below.

I believe present-day theosophical movement is pretty much about repeating the same ideas (which are eternally valid) -- and it is scarcely able to relate those grand ideas to actual situations, both in individual lives and collectivelly.

As we hardly look at our own movement with the clear goal to improve it, we also avoid looking at the challenges which face humanity now. Ethical, envrinmental, poliical-military.

The Middle East crisis is at the crux of human karma now. It should be part of our job to understand it.

Therefore I invite you to expand your views about that, please.

I hold that HPB/Masters' teachings on centralized, intolerant religions is of key importance for going ahead in terms of theosophical movement and for human development. But this hypothesis of mine cannot be tested, and duly investigated, if we do not look at actual facts taking place right now.

Some 80 persons were killed in Irak as they went out of a religious ceremony yesterday, Friday, April 7th. Shia Moslems mass-murdered by Suny Moslems suicide bombers.

In Palestine, Palestinians fight Palestinians.

The circle of hatred seems to expand -- and everything which expands will later retreat, as Philosophical Taoism rightfully explains.

The first sign of retreat may be this recent phenomena: the growing violence among Moslems; ripening karma leads violence back to its cause.

The old trick of authoritarian Arab regimes using hatred against an external enemy (Western society as a whole) to avoid the domestic consequences of their own utter corruption --- is ceasing to work.

The same can be said, in part, of the industrial-military complex in the USA and the policy of Mr. G. W. Bush. USA's democracy is very good, but I cannot say the same of the military-industrial interests in the USA, which have a tendency to fabricate military enemies in order to keep and enhance their profits. North American people is just about to awaken to new levels of vigilance about that.


So, Sufilight and friends, tell us more about Middle East. We should be able to exchange our different views about that caleidoscopal mystery -- a mystery which hides a promise of peace.


Regards, Carlos.

Hallo all,

My views are:

Allright.
This is a short answer to your question:

I hold it to be true, that most theosophical teachings, which are used by
Theosophical groups
and organisations are targetting a western audience or westernized
audience - and certainly not a Middle Eastern one. This is - today - in our
present informations society not an expression of compassion or altruism. I
find it to be an expression of westernized narrowmindedness.

Today we have the western massmedias overwhelmingly influence on
communication around the globe. The western massmedias are with their news
flashes and the like creating a distorted image of the Middle East. And they
have succeed in fooling many beginner Theosophists and even Theosophical
teachers on what the Middle East is.

M. Sufilight with peace and love...
