On Terrorism and other matters

Written by 

We Make Efforts To Value And Make Our Egos And Bodies Real; Terrorists Make Efforts To Destroy That Which We Value So As To Teach Us That They Are Not Valuable And Real

 

Everything in the world has positive and negative aspects to it. Terrorism has horrific aspects to it but it also has a positive aspect to it. How?

We human beings denied our true selves, formless spirits, and identify with false selves, separated selves, egos and bodies and defend those false identities.

Our entire world is an attempt to protect our false selves and their houses, bodies and society (material civilization). Terrorists come along and attack and destroy our ego selves and bodies. We feel scared by what they do.

The lesson in terrorists act is for us is to stop valuing the valueless, our egos and bodies; terrorists are teaching us to not value our egos and bodies, to let them go so as to remember our true selves, spirit. In that sense terrorists are trying to save us from identification with the false ego and body by destroying our egos and bodies and body based civilization hence return us to the awareness of our true selves, unified spirit.

People desire to live in egos and bodies and terrorists, in effect, say to them: we will destroy that which you value and show you that it has no value by killing your ego and body. They do not mind dying while killing people (which show that they also do not value their own bodies and egos...if they did so from love they would be liberated from attachment to nothingness hence are saved).

TERRORISTS ACCENTUATE FEAR HENCE ARE BAD PEOPLE; GOOD PEOPLE ENHANCE LOVE

Terrorists traffic in fear; they have managed to get Americans now to live in fear and seek ways to protect themselves; they are financially bleeding Americans dry, making them spend billions of dollars to protect themselves and in the process may bankrupt the country (not to talk about the inconvenience they now cause folks at airports and other ports of entries into the country).

AS LONG AS PEOPLE VALUE THEIR BODIES THERE WILL ALWAYS BE TERRORISTS TO TEACH THEM NOT TO VALUE THEM

There will always be terrorists in the world because as long as people choose to live in egos and bodies and value those there will be those who want to show them that egos and bodies are nothing by destroying that which they value.

Aspects of governments are terroristic for they are used to get the people to behave as told to do, obey laws that they serve the ruling classes; if the masses do not obey those laws they are arrested and jailed.  Of course, most aspects of governments are positive, for people need to have laws and obey laws if they are to get along with each other and live in safety. The point is that law making and law enforcement, that is, government, has its positive and negative aspects.

TERRORISTS CAN TAKE OVER THE WORLD; MUSLIMS DID IT IN THE PAST

Given peoples identification with egos and desire to protect their egos and bodies, terrorists can threaten to kill them. Terrorists do randomly kill some of people to get the rest of the people to accept the terrorists' idea of how people ought to live.

Islam began as a terrorist organization; it used intimidation to take over the Middle East after Mohammed died (Mohammed himself used intimidation to take over Mecca). In the present, Muslim terrorist organizations such as Boko Haram in Nigeria are taking over parts of Nigeria and ISIS is taking over parts of the Middle East.

Colonialism was based on terrorism; Europeans used intimidation to colonize the world; White Americans took over America via terrorism. Native Americans used terrorism to intimidate each other and take each other's lands before white men came to their world; therefore, Native Americans were not immune to terrorism; as for Africans, as we speak, they are still terrorizing each other; Asians did and still do the same. Thus, terrorism is a human issue; it is not limited to any segment of humanity.

KILLING TERRORISTS IS DOING THEM AND SOCIETY A FAVIOR

Killing terrorists is doing them and all people a favor, for in the dream of separation they make people live in fear; fear accentuates living in ego state hence the dream of separation; what awakens people is loving them so that they live fearlessly, not wanting to live as egos and bodies; love returns people to awareness of unified self, whereas fear separates them from that real state.

SICKNESS AND PAIN IS ATTEMPT TO PROTECT THE SEPARATED SELF

Self-consciousness is enhanced by pain and fear. If you have physical pain and or sickness you must be conscious of your body and hence conscious of yourself. Therefore, self-consciousness is an attempt to protect the separated self in body. Self-consciousness is often an attempt to protect a big grandiose self.

NARCISSISM IS AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE NOTHINGNESS SEEM IMPORTANT

Narcissism is a futile effort to make ones ego and body seem to have worth when one is aware that they have no worth.

We all have a bit of narcissism because we all try to make our egos and bodies seem important when deep down we all know that ego and body are nothing, they do not even exist.

Narcissism is part of our efforts to value nothing, body and ego. This is what this world is all about; to be in the world is to value nothing, value what does not even exist for body and ego do not exist.

JOURNALISTS REPORT ON THE ACTIVITIES OF NARCISSISTIC POLITICIANS

Journalists and reporters write on the activities of politicians, businessmen and athletes, those in the arenas playing for attention and in the process obtain a little attention for themselves.  They are powerless feeling folks.

THIS WORLD IS A LUNATIC ASSYLUM, CHARACTERIZED BY DELUSION AND HALLUCINATION

We are permanently in formless spirit yet we made ourselves desire a separated self hence see a material world that makes separated selves possible; we see a world that is not there by believing that it is possible to see what is not there as there.

On earth, in the dream we see what is not there thus we are hallucinating; we believe what is not true as true, that we are separated selves housed in bodies, hence we are deluded.  Life in egos and bodies is always insane.  To be on earth is to be insane, period.

I am insane; you are insane; we are all insane. The question now is what we do with our individual and collective insanity, deny it or heal it?

Normal folks totally believe that the world is real, they deny their unified spirit selves so they are completely insane; they are living in pleasant insanity, I call normal folks pleasantly insane people.

Neurotics question the reality of the world; they doubt the reality of the ego, body and world but instead of accepting that they are not real they use their minds to recreate a better self, other people and social institutions and world and try to bring those illusions into being hence they are living in disturbed insanity; they are full of fear and anxiety and anger (all used to protect their imaginary ideal selves, bodies and world).

The world cannot be improved, for it does not exist; all attempts to improve a dream are mere waste of time. Accept that the world does not exist and do not wish to improve it.

Even the improvement of people and the world given by the Holy Spirit in the world of light forms is still insane, albeit lovely insanity.

EACH INDIVIDUAL IS DOING WHAT HE CAME TO DO

Each individual is doing what his individual dream and our collective dream calls on him to do and you cannot make him behave differently. He chose a body, parents, DNA, society that enables him to do and experience what he is doing, and since he is part of us we all chose for him what he chose.

There is no such thing as individuality separated from other people; in spirit we all share one self, unified self, the one son of God and experience whatever each person chooses to experience (we each play roles for each of us to experience whatever he wants to experience).

WE ARE ALWAYS IN LOVE, UNION WHILE DREAMING HATE, SEPATRATION

If you want to return to sanity then do not wish for ego separated self and its body; tune your ego and body out and revert to the awareness of your formless self; your real self is formless unified self which is love; that real self, perfect love is always already there but you overlook it to see a separated self and supporting world.

REAL LOVE DOES NOT MEAN TRYING TO IMPROVE PEOPLE

Real love does not mean working to protect people's bodies and egos; it does not mean giving people material things. Love means affirming the real self in people; this actually requires one to do nothing.

Of course, in the here and now world one has to materially provide for those around one; this is not love but the dictates of practical matters; helping people enable all of our egos and bodies to survive on earth.

LET US DO SOME PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY: HEAT AND ENTROPY

Heat always moves from a hotter to a cooler region and warms the cooler region up; in the process the heat energy is lessened; heat loss leads to entropy (second law of thermodynamics).

When we burn wood we release its stored energy from the sun; we release oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen in the wood. Burn wood and you reduce it to energy (from which it, matter, came); high temperature  transforms solid to heat, light, sound, motion and electricity and chemical energies; electrons are released from atoms and those turn into the light we see when we burn wood.

HOW THE BIG BANG PRODUCED MATTER

Consider that water(liquid) cools into solids (ice); here, high vibrating atoms and molecules  (H2O)slow down and become solid (ice); when heat is added to that solid ice  the atoms and molecules in it begin to vibrate at a faster rate and melt into water (liquid); when we boil that water we reduce it to steam (gas). Thus we have transformed matter to its three states and can retransform those to pure energy (heat, motion, sound, light, electricity etc.).

The Big bang began as pure energy (radiation); when its heat cooled down it became (particles, atoms, matter).  Thus the Big Bang produced energy, matter, space and time (there is another form of matter called plasma; here, electrons are not attached to nuclei).

Thereafter, he worked in the mental health field and was the Executive Director of two mental health agencies. He subsequently left the mental health environment with the goal of being less influenced by others perspectives, so as to be able to think for himself and synthesize Western, Asian and African perspectives on phenomena. Dr Osuji’s goal is to provide us with a unique perspective, one that is not strictly Western or African but a synthesis of both. Dr Osuji teaches, writes and consults on leadership, management, politics, psychology and religions. Dr Osuji is married and has three children; he lives at Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
