I read somewhere that The U.N. is suggesting to put a ban on criticism of religions. Particularly this direction, if true, suggests a response to Muslim’s growing sensitivity for criticism on their religion.
Personally I’m not buying into it, though melodramatic over-sensitivity seems to be ever growing in all corners of the globe.
From my experience, from discussing religious matters with Muslims, it seems that Mainstream Media has been building up this agenda of only Muslims being overly melo-dramatic when it comes to criticism on their religion.
When observing Social and Mainstream media, Muslims feeling marginalized and oppressed in collective discourse, seems justified. It seems that the whole world is terrified of Islam, and given the seemingly growing acts of terrorism, people feel justified.
It is often conveniently left out, that among real terrorists, Muslims generally come in third after Jews and Christians, which again reminds us that the mainstream agenda might itself be biased. I myself who have studied history of propaganda, religions and philosophy, and read both Lippmann and Bernays, am convinced beyond doubt that there’s an agenda, but it’s out of scope for this reflection.
It might in this context be appropriate keep in mind that The U.N. – which in my mind represents Babylon the Great and consolidation and symbolism of Satan’s world dominance – has founded United Religions Initiative. That even the Jehovah’s Witnesses have submitted to the authority in this respect.
They claim to submit only to Jesus and have for over a century marketed themselves door-to-door as the only religion standing up to Satan’s world dominance but this act in itself, to me, supports the conspiracy theory that they may well have been founded by Freemasonry as an agenda to divert people who are seekers of infinite depth in spiritual understanding into a well defined, and imprisoned, corner of conscious.
Yet again, this is out of scope.
In my work as a Prophet I have made an effort to keep a very open mind towards diverse understandings when it comes to religions at large. I have spent a lot of time studying Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Zoroastrianism in particular and other religions on the side, in varying degrees. I find all religions at fault when it comes to Idolatry and have in various places discussed that in particular.
I condemn the doctrines, the ideologies themselves, their applications at large, but not the people who have faith in them. There is in my mind a great distinction between the ideology itself and the people believing in it. Even one can add a third viewpoint – as a twilight between the bright side of the moon and the dark side – for people confessing to believe but being obvious hypocrite or a bigot.
In many cases I have used Social Media to have discussions with people around the world who believe in Islam, or shall we say; wish to share the faith of The Prophet. Often I have found their knowledge of the life of Mohammad to be lacking and almost always I find them lacking when it comes to knowledge about the content of the holy Qur’an (or Koran).
I have even had episodes when devout Muslims tried to convince me of some teaching in the Hadith which clearly contradicts the teaching of Mohammad. That in itself doesn’t matter to me personally. It is often the case with people, of all creeds and ideologies, to be convinced of something while lacking proper knowledge.
To attempt to educate everyone about the illusions of their own worldviews, would drive the sanest saint mad in a few days.
Faith in what ever form, and whether the subject matter is metaphysical or physical, always touches your heart and moves you in some way. How it moves you or what it moves you toward, or away from, is always personal, sacred, and transformative in some way. It doesn’t matter whether it is based on ideology, theology, superstition or subjective emotionality.
If you are absolutely convinced of something which is greater than yourself and willing to let it move you, it will become a living force in your life. I myself got indoctrinated into a specific religious sect when I was twenty years old. Although I left the congregation three years later, after intense and in-depth study, I continued for almost two decades to believe the doctrine which I learned in those three years.
I continued to add to and build upon the teaching – sometimes shredding parts of it – until the day came when my spiritual maturity enabled me to become an apostate of that faith and turn exclusively and absolutely to pure and simple Monotheism. This I have explained in-depth in various degrees in both written and spoken form and published on-line.
From my experienced perspective of not only studying religions, ideologies and generic philosophy, and living through active application of my own faith, and simultaneously growing with it and having it growing in my conscious in many wondrous ways; I have a unique perspective on how faith moves people and how important it is – whichever the subject matter – when it comes to build a solid foundation for ones life.
This is why I see a growing trend in our modern Humanist or Secular worldview (in the Industrial Ghetto) that more and more people are becoming interested in Islam as a faith, whether as protagonists, searchers, or antagonists. Islam is a real monotheist branch and has in many respects been less diluted by Idolatry and Mysticism than i.e. Christianity and Judaism.
It moves people, from whatever standpoint they see a religion, when it is evident and obvious to people outside the faith that it is more vibrant and powerful to move people than other religions around it at the same time. This always moves people who stand outside it.
Some people become interested to learn and study while the less firm become frightened or antagonistic.
As I see it, the Humanist worldview has nothing of substance to provide people with, as spiritual nourishment goes. This creates a vacuum in the lives of millions of people. Over time people begin to realize that the Social Engineers of our Industrial and Indoctrinated society are using brainwash, and subliminal coercion, to keep people confined, and they quickly become disillusioned.
The first step on the way out of that spiritual desert is the world of Marginal Media, then Conspiracy Theories and usually the angry and distrustful version of it, eventually leading people towards a voice of strong spiritual convictions and commitment. Many get stuck in new ideologies, often for years, until they realize that they discarded one truth for another, but many never come to that point.
You become sensitive when you truly believe in something and when it becomes a part of your identity.
This is why Christians in the west aren’t really sensitive to attacks on their faiths anymore. Yet when you lose the substance of metaphysical meaning – which invariably is based in the undefined of spirituality but sometimes in devout faith, you become afraid of the raw culture of faith which still has substance of meaning.
Hence we discover how afraid the humanist culture is of Islam, and in fact of any consolidated doctrine capable of moving people to subject their spiritual inner and outer life to it. That Muslims feel insulted when criticized of idolization of Mohammad or i insulted regarding the concept of a Caliph, or any other teaching of the Hadith or Qur’an, is simply a symptom that these people believe in the substance of the spiritual aspect of their faith and lip-serving Christians and others in the world feel threatened by it.
On a personal note, I often refer to earlier prophets of Monotheism as “my brothers.” Every time when I do this in my video discourse, which is published on Youtube, I ask myself when a devout Muslim will pour his anger over me. It is well known that many Muslims do not tolerate any discourse which “they might interpret as defamation of Mohammad.”
It is taught, in the Hadith and not in the Qur’an, that he were a perfect example of a most perfect human being, and hence has been thoroughly idolized.
The fact is that every prophet of Monotheism from the first to the last; is a human being, both male and female. Every single one of them would have described himself – or herself – as a frail and imperfect human being, a simple messenger to bring inspiration from God, the most high, into the world in order for other imperfect humans to use for their spiritual benefit. That’s where it begins and ends.
In the same fashion keep in mind that all messages from all prophets of Monotheism were written down by others than themselves, and often after they had passed away. Noone knows how much may have been, or may not have been, lost in translation. Notice the choice of words; lost in translation is not the same as being omitted or blatantly changed by i.e. authoritarian clergy or bigoted teachers.
Neither the holy Qu’ran or The Bible were written by God but inspired by God, through prophets and later sanitized by supporters of the faith transformed into a regulated or formed religion. People often overlook the subtlety of these distinctions. People tend to be blind to careful choice of words or the difference between written or recited teaching, the latter can namely change through centuries while the former tends to become static and Masonically chiseled.
Ages of culture is a flavor which here comes to mind. If we would look at all prophets of all religions being inspired – or illuminated – humans who were harbingers of spiritual insight to their contemporaries, we can easily see a timeline emerging.
Rarely where at any given time through the aeons of history, spanning the entire globe, two prophets working simultaneously. It should be self evident to a diligent initiate of inspirational and transformative content, that “The Last Prophet” is a lost in translation concept for “The Latest Prophet.”
We can so easily see that God sends spiritual food to humanity in correlation to the spiritual maturity of the collective mind at any given time. Sometimes in short intervals and sometimes in long. Which brings me to the famous question, so often heralded in mainstream one-sided media: Is Islam a religion of peace or of hate and war?
We are not peaceful beings, start with yourself and analyze the shadow recesses of your soul or the story of your ancestors and their work.
A religion cannot be a religion of peace, nor hate and war. It is a path from evil tendencies of the human soul towards the tranquil illumination and transformation of that soul. Pure and simple. How people interpret that path, is a reflection of how powerful their own shadow is.
Let us take the concept of Jihad for example. The pure meaning of that concept is “resist the bad and lead it towards good, it is within yourself.” It is true that the propaganda of terrorism, and it seems that some angry and misguided souls submit to it in action, that this concept is explained in different terms to people outside Islam, but you will never find a true Muslim believing that evil propaganda, only frightened and shallow people do.
You can use selected versions of history and bigoted analysis to explain anything you want to gullible and shallow people who are afraid of their own shadow. For example, how many people in Europe and The U.S.A have considered that the blood of an Iraqi is just as valuable as their own? How many of us have been reminded in the public discourse that it is easier to find fault with external foes and aliens than in our own back yard?
How many of us have been taught to be active participants in the shaping of our own culture, rather than passive voters? This is exactly what deep and motivating faith requires of us, that we ourselves have to be active and responsible in shaping our own community, and the spiritual nourishment of ourselves and our families. Does uri.org teach you how to do that or to submit to Babylon of the United Demon-Nations?
