BLESS OUR ENEMIES

As the Native Americans reminded us; "No tree has branches so foolish as to fight among themselves."

FREEDOM FAN SAID: "Ms. Cornell I know you are a woman of faith, who advocates turning the other cheek and loving your enemies as Christ taught, but while that represents a beautiful ideal, I do not find that a workable solution for dealing with the world's evil."

MY ANSWER: If not now, WHEN? When will we use our principles? When will we try the one thing God commanded us to do? There's always an excuse not to trust Christ's command. But you are ignoring the divine principle which governs the universe. God is love. We are commanded to love one another, ESPECIALLY when the enemy is as grim as this enemy. You are completely ignoring the spiritual principles God gave us. And if we actually stopped making the enemy so powerful with our obsessive focus on him, and go about God' business of creating a beautiful, clean, proserous safe world for our children -- focusing on God, love and beauty, the enemy would never have any power over us. It's our attention to him that makes him bigger. WHAT YOU FOCUS ON GROWS.

These simple metaphysical principles are the absolute answer to all the strife in the world and in our personal lives.

IF NOT NOW, WHEN? When will fundamentalists of every stripe, get it?

Standing up to evil, renouncing it, and seeing the Christ Truth in your fellow man, no matter how deceiving appearances are, is the key. But to retaliate on the level of engaging in fear-based obsession and magnifying the enemy, only makes the "enemy" larger. This is a spiritual law. Violence against innocents on the hopes of killing militants, is always wrong. There are much more clever and thoughtful ways of annihiating an enemy and it starts in your thought about them. They diminish when the nations of world unite to reduce their power. Not by creating more violence! We are feeding the violence and darkness by fighting it. We are giving it more power. But it has no real power. Just like darkness has no power of its own. LIght is an actual source of energy. Darkness is the absence of light.

Blessing your enemies is the divine law, the Christ Truth, and never fails to work when applied properly.

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you...

"For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Don't even sinners do the same? what merit is there in that?

To return love for hate, now that is the right way. That is truly holy.

Anyway, it's hard but every single time I think hateful thoughts about Muslim terrorists, or George Bush or intolerant "Christians" I turn my thoughts to love. The hardest people to do this with are ex-friends and family.

It works, even if you can only do it 9 times out of 10. It changes everything.

Why do people keep arguing about God when God is simply love? Who can argue with human kindness? Asking to prove God is like asking to prove you love your kids. Love is actually the energy of our focused attention on good, which is another definition for God. You can be attractive even if you're not "good looking" because if you radiate love, you attract people. This energy is molecular. Einstein's Unified Field therefore is love, which is God. Science proves God; the two are not mutually exclusive.

The concept of loving our enemies is the entire point of Christ's mission. That and his healing "miracles," (which he told us we are all supposed to be doing, and which are another form of NOT FIGHTING OUR ENEMIES -- our thoughts of disease, our thoughts of shame, guilt, anger, regret. To focus on people who hate us or want to kill us, or to focus on what we don't have, or on a disease in our bodies, is "embodying" our enemy, giving it life.) Christ's miracles have been buried by pharisaical, fundamentalist thought. These healings are actually based on natural law.

Also, to allow the terrorists to define our lives for us, to "hop" to their commands and live in fear of their threats, is to give them too much power.

Christ's "new law" in the New Testament was revolutionary! Moses' laws were the "thou shalt nots." Christ brought the Beatitudes (which mean "Blessings" and were all focused on a HIGHER LAW -- the law of LOVE, a spiritual way of dealing with life. "Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall inherit the earth or the kingdom...

Why don't' modern-day pharisees get it? Why can't they see themselves? Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Tom Delay, Tim LaHaye, Bush, Cheney, Coulter are bogged down in primitive eye-for-an-eye Old Testament thought. This will get us nowhere but to chaos and hatred.

We have to be progressive enough to realize life is spiritual. We must put our eyes on God and trust God in national and human relations. Fighting our enemies in preemptive strike, CHOOSING WAR is against God. How can they call themselves Christian and be so full of hatred that they would go out of their way to create enemies, torture, corruption and deceit? Why do they have such a sense of entitlement, of hoarding wealth? We, the American people, do not choose war. It is against everything our forefathers wanted. We need answers.

Thoughts rule the world. We can lift our consciousness above what the material senses tell us. Then we will see heaven on earth.

Act "as if" you really trust God, instead of fear-based human manipulations. If you really follow Christ, you will be able to stare a lion in the eye and he will back down.

For a "pro-life' culture the right-wing people on my main blog sure love death and war. They are reeking of hatred for their fellow man. They advocate more and more violence. It's such a strange hypocrisy, hating one's fellow man, sight unseen, and being willing to bomb innocent civilians in order to catch a few embedded "insurgents" in the name of Christ, yet willing to kill Democrats (as Ann Coulter advocates) over frozen fetal cells and embryos that will never become children.

Why do you think God put us all in different colors and tribes? So we can overcome the easy way: hatred for our fellow man.

It's easy to fight those who hurt you; the higher law calls on us to love those who hate us and seek to hurt us.

Then we will see miracles begin to happen in human relationships.

There are 1.5 billion Muslims. They want peace. Only fundamentalist extremists (in all religions) preach intolerance. To those who do so, look in the mirror.


Einstein did say "goodness, truth and beauty are laws in the universe" as is harmony. Play the piano and you'll hear it. Kiss your child and you'll feel it. Go outside and breathe in the sunshine while playing with an amazingly beautiful striped animal or a butterfly. Bring coffee to someone who thinks you hate them.

I agree Lydia,

Christ didn't seek war on those who sought him harm.

He prayed for them and forgave them. Its to bad our leaders in both parties ignore that thinking.

How come prayer never works for me?

Oh, I forgot, how can I possibly expect it to work for me when it didnt work for Anne Frank and millions of other innocents who are far more worthy than my person.



Now I,ll probably here the age old excuse: "Maybe God had special plans for them."

LOL :D

Ahhh......the comfort of illusion.

Lydia,

You words bring warmth to me on a day when I posted perhaps the saddest thing I ever have.

JMM,

Prayer works only if you pray with your heart and not with your mouth. But more, prayer works best when you pray for the strength to do what must be done, which may not be what you think should be done.

Nice Carl, however, I cant help but think that such a reasonable analogy is nothing more than self brainwashing in an effort to accept futility in a harsh environment.

Hi Lydia,

It's curious... finding this. :) I came from your other blog.

You speak the truth. But Jesus instructed "know them by their works". We all know, especially in today's World that talk means nothing. Which is sad in itself. And please believe, I am not implying anything about you. I don’t know you, and I don't judge. I leaned that lesson long ago. :)

You don't know me any more than I know you. But I was drawn here. And it feels like a good place to be. :)

And Krista,

You are right. Jesus never sought harm on anyone. But he always knew that his Father, Yahweh, wrath would be terrible! Which is why Jesus prayed for them and asked his Father to forgive them.

Look what Yahweh did to Jerusalem, Babel, Soddom and Gemorrah. Even God the Father has his limits.

The good news is, the more I learn about Yahweh, and Jesus... the less there is to fear. :)

I have to admit... The current situation in the USA makes it very difficult for me not to become angry, and I do at times lash out at some, such as Coulter or the current Administration. I am not perfect, and don't pretend to be. And I don't say that as an excuse either. I do work on it. I know who and what I am. And I am no hypocrit. Yahweh knows what is in our hearts. And only a fool or an unbeliever would try to lie to Him. :)

Well... I didn't intend for this to become a book! LOL

I wish you all, peace and best wishes.

Heres Lydia Cornells “unpublic” cold and heartless e-mail to me regarding worfs attack on a young girl and labelling her a 10 cent whore:

“But it's free speech. As long as no one uses foul language.
more later,
Lydia “




Heres Lydia Cornells PUBLIC outrage towards FF for calling British Gary a fascist.


“British Gary,

You're right, I'm sorry. I hadn't seen the rude post by FF until now. I had no idea he called you a fascist!

FREEDOM FAN owes you a big apology”

Battle not with monsters lest ye become one; for when you look into the Abyss, the Abyss looks into you.

Do not fear your enemies. The worst they can do is kill you. Do not fear friends. At worst they may betray you. Fear those who do not care; they neither kill nor betray, but betrayal and murder exists because of their silent consent.

Nietzsche

The only people backing War of any type, seem to have a monetary tie, hence the need to "stay the course" no matter what the human cost is ; (
A very sad state of affairs in this day & time ; (
