More Signs of Awakening

People — both Jews and non-Jews — have been sending me articles and videos indicating that large portions of the Jewish community have begun to explore their Shadow, recognizing that true external peace only comes from inner harmony between the rejected other and the conscious “I.”

One of the best articles I’ve seen is by Miriam Sitrin, “Not in Our Name — Taking Back Judaism from Israel.” This is a powerful piece, definitely worth the click-thru. A second piece is the timely reprint of a 2010 article: The Nature of Exile Part 2, The Solution Starts by Understanding the Problem, by HaRav Ariel Bar Tzadok. This piece directly addresses the need for exiles of any sort to reclaim the exiled parts of themselves so that they no longer feel the compulsive need for fear, prejudice and projection, which result in tyranny and violence. Again, definitely worth the click-thru. This piece appeared in the most recent KosherTorah.com newsletter. Although it does not directly mention the outrage at current events in Gaza, this piece speaks loudly to the need to change strategies and work for harmony.

Both of these pieces warm my heart, because they encourage people to reforge their own identity, separate from what political leaders insist their identity must be. They demonstrate courage to begin fathoming the horrors done in their name, and this process, though obviously one for Jews right now with regard to Israel and Gaza, is one that every human being on this planet must do if we are ever to transcend the old, bloody paradigms. Thank you to the Jewish community for exploring the dark underbelly of religion, Israel and politics.

I will close with two comments, one from Burt Lopestri left on the “Not in Our Name” article: “I respect the Jewish Community for airing their views. I wish some of the Muslims would do the same by rejecting those hijacking the Muslim faith by invoking Jihad. If this is not who you are say so..!!”

The next comment is my own warning to Jews and to anyone else doing difficult Shadow work that involves recognizing lying leadership and betrayals by those they trusted with their hearts and lives:

Now that you have reclaimed your power, keep it. Recognizing that the old ways have failed, the old guard will look to promote a new leader, same as the old leader or group, likely in 180 degree opposite clothes. The pendulum swings. Remember this feeling of empowerment, and retain it. Only through personal responsibility can we maintain an awakened, compassionate society, free of manipulation by those who would control the masses. You have come this far. Keep going! Please, for yourselves and for all of us, continue that inner work.

Blessings and Gratitude,
Laura

    Thank you Laura! This is so heartening to see. In response to the comment at the bottom, there already are lots of Muslims doing exactly that. I read a wonderful article years ago by a Muslim scholar who explained how the people using the word jihad for terrorism were not using it correctly and how the whole hate driven cycle of violence is completely antithetical to the real teachings of Islam. I don’t recall the title or author right now, I read it in a print publication around 2003. I have seen other similar things online as well. The majority of humanity desires peace and most people do not choose to be violent even despite incredible oppression and violence done to them.

  6. That’s great to hear, Ohnwentsya. If the Muslims would come out in full force as the Jews are doing right now, it could stop the slaughter and violence in their tracks. 🙂

  7. Laura,

    Just a short aside…I read a channeling that the Divine Mother Isis was returning to several points of earth for a short while over the next months…

    She is presently sending her light and love over the Middle East….she is one of the more powerful forces here at this moment of time…

    She has returned…try connecting to her…

  8. I hope everyone will come out-and it appears at least on Facebook for instance, that more and more people are doing so.
    I think in some situations, unfortunately, the people speaking out against violence has not created change because the driving forces of the violence are entrenched groups such as the neocons in Israel’s government being funded and supported by their warmongering counterparts in oyr (U.S.) government.
    The bottom line IS the bottom line for them, and tge aggression is always predicated on securing resources-no matter what excuses they use to gin up support from the TV addicted masses:-/
    We will need a very massive majority to take a serious stand against our taxes being used to blow up living beings in order to stop these persistent outbreaks of death and destruction that are as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Mali, etc and now the most recent in Gaza that are just a much bloodier version of the toddler tantrum “I WANT THAT!!”.
    I’m hopeful because more people are becoming aware of the REAL causes and so should be less likely to fall for the absurd propaganda.
    The hardest task will be for those who literally are attempting self defense to recognize that violence is rarely effective no matter how unfair or insane the situation. Because those who use the resistance of the oppressed for their own ends by funding and arming it, are often much less obviously self serving than those grabbing land, natural gas reserves, oil etc.
