We’ve discussed the illusion of “Peace at any price.” Now we must look the opposite direction. We could call it this: “My country at war is always right.”
To understand this illusion it would help to look again at why such a high percentage of Germans supported Hitler when on hindsight 999 out of a thousand see him as obviously wrong.
One reason he was so successful was that he controlled the populace through fear on the physical plane. Those who did not conform were tortured, imprisoned or killed.
Then on the astral plane he projected the image of one who was unstoppable and always achieved his goals. Acquiring several nations without firing a shot made him a hero.
On the mental plane of illusion he did a number of things that tricked the people into supporting him.
He controlled the information that was fed to the people. This included the press, publishing, radio and education.
By giving the people wrong pieces to the puzzle and suppressing correct ones He was able to manipulate the people toward any illusion he desired.
For instance, many question as to why he was supported in starting World War II by invading Poland when Poland seemed to be doing little harm to anyone.
The reason is that he projected an illusion to the German people that Poland was doing harm to Germany. Hitler fed his people the information that there were many Germans in Poland and they were being mistreated and persecuted and needed to be liberated. Thus many Germans supported the invasion as a righteous war of liberation.
The Germans were caught up in the wrong reason to go to war which is: “Forcible expansion of your nation’s territories or dominion.”
This was the real reason for the war, but because of illusion the Germans thought they were supporting the cause of freedom.
Hitler had one significant advantage during his war. There were no protesters as we have had with the United States. If anyone protested in Nazi Germany they suffered imprisonment or worse.
Many wonder why so many Germans seemed to support the persecution and elimination of the Jews.
Again, this same thing happened. Through the control of information the Germans were taught that Jews were a part of a banking conspiracy which controlled the world and were responsible for the hard economic times the country was having. They were taught the that Jewish race itself was evil and were satanic from the beginning of history.
As the Germans absorbed this propaganda many had no qualms about persecuting and destroying their own neighbors just because they were Jews.
This brings us to the next illusion. Just as there are two sides to the illusion of war even so are there two sides to all illusion. The principle behind the illusionary hatred of the Jews plays out in racism, hatred of other groups, religions, countries and peoples.
Of course an incomplete picture causes this hatred, but the question that must be asked is: “What are the missing pieces?”
To discover the missing pieces we must look at the effect the incomplete picture causes. It causes one to look at his neighbor and see one who is different in a bad way – so bad in fact that they are often seen as evil or a child of the devil himself.
Question: What is a missing piece that will cause one to cease hating his brother and accept him?
Question: What is the other side of the illusion here? If seeing strong differences is one side of the equation, then seeing sameness is another. Explain this illusion of sameness and why it is also destructive.
I came across this tidbit. It may not be exact truth but it seems headed the right direction.
Vibration Study ~ Dr. David Hawkins
In his book “Power vs. Force,” Dr. David Hawkins provides the results from a study of the vibrations we hold in different states of consciousness, emotion and perceptions.
This is a very short synopsis of some of the basic information you will find in “Power vs. Force” and Dr. Hawkins’ work.
The chart below is a listing of emotions and consciousness with a corresponding number that is attributed to the vibration of those emotions and perspectives. The higher number, the higher the vibration. The lower the number, the lower the vibration.
Fear / Anxiety 100
Desire/Craving 125 (based in a more of lack consciousness)
The work of Dr. Hawkins further states:
You vibration alone (not your direct actions) impacts humanity as follows
~ One individual who lives and vibrates to the energy of Optimism and a willingness to be nonjudgmental of others will counterbalance the negativity of 90,000 individuals who calibrate at the lower weakening levels.
~One individual who lives and vibrates to the energy of pure love and reverence for all of life will counterbalance the negativity of 750,000 individuals who calibrate at the lower weakening levels.
~One individual who lives and vibrates to the energy of the illumination, bliss, and infinite peace will counterbalance the negativity of 10 million people who calibrate to lower weakening levels. (approximately 22 such sages are alive today… but don’t let this stop you!)
~One individual who lives and vibrates to the energy of grace, pure spirit beyond the body, in a world of nonduality or complete oneness, will counterbalance the negativity of 70 million people who calibrate to lower weakening levels. (approximately 10 such sages are alive today).
