'I can't find ANYONE in history that's done what we need done here.' SL (vlog, Transcript)


Poor Audio on this - I suggest you read the transcript below while watching.



It was months ago that I had the realization that during a mild depression like I'm in now, while exploring the reasons for my depression, realizing that what I was trying to figure out how to do neither Gandhi, nor Jesus, not Martin Luther King had succeeded in doing. This was quite a realization for me. As usual, such profound realizations are immediately of benefit but take a long, long, long, long time to unpack in terms of their full implications - years, many years in my case, often. In the last several days I've begun a process that will probably last a week for part of my time each day, anyway.

I'm thinking more deeply about the people throughout history that have had any impact whatsoever on moving others in the direction of sanity, Loving. Having done that for a few hours in recent days I find the realizations I'm seeing depressing. Maybe surprising only to me, but depressing, and enlightening. I'm not thinking of anyone, with the possible exception of Teresa of Calcutta, that has had a significant success in moving groups of people out of insanity, out of affloholism, and into sanity, Loving, Universal Brotherhood. Gandhi before he died was deeply depressed, as near as I can tell, profoundly, near totally saddened by what he viewed as his life failure. His goal, he suggested, was never to ultimately the liberation of India. He said on numerous occasions that he would sacrifice that in a moment if he thought it was not ultimately leading to a massive, broad increase in brotherhood (my words not his) but that's what he was indicating. And he realized before he died that he had not caused a mass movement toward brotherhood. Rather all he had done was achieve the short 'use' of brotherhood to achieve the aims of Head and Flesh, the liberation from Britain.

And I guess I'm realizing for the first time why he found that so depressing. It wasn't some superficial moralizing. It was the brother realizing that he had not cured the disease, but he had pushed back some symptoms, but not cured the disease, and he could see where the disease would lead.

Well, Jesus you say, He was a great success. He moved masses of people. No, not in the direction that He wanted. In fact his teachings have been used infinitely more successfully by the forces of Evil, the church for example, than the forces of Good, the handful of Saints throughout the ages.

Not Martin Luther King, Jr. Almost immediately with his death, the Goodness that he embodied evaporated from the others who it had infected. Oh, but we revere Dr. King; we just built a memorial to him. No, we revere him the same way we revere Jesus, in our own image of Head and Flesh. No. Dr. King's spirit is dead. Knowledge of him in our Head and our Flesh is there, but his Spirit? For all intents and purposes, Dead. The Spirit of Gandhi for all intents and purposes is dead. The Spirit of Jesus for all intents and purposes is dead. Whereas he would have had it proliferated, and stay dominant on the planet.

No one has remotely achieved the only salvation for humanity now that we've brought ourselves to the edge of the cliff of global environmental armageddon.

For your interest maybe, it will not happen the you'll find that Loving's gone and blown his brains out, or anything similar. That's not what this is about, that's not where this is headed. I hate to see how bleak it is, but more than that I hate not to see the Truth, because in the Truth, if there is any hope for any constructive action whatsoever, its to be found in an understanding of the Truth.

Over the next week or so I'm sure I'll be reporting out on this work that I've just scratched the surface of, of reflecting on people and movements as it relates to a mass movement from the insanity of Head in charge, to the sanity, the only sanity, the Heart being in charge. And this is the first of those reports.
