Vladimir Putin addressed the U.N. after having actively accepted the invitation into Syria’s war. All things being equal I thought I’d proffer my observations too:
“Few does power not destroy.” Edgar Cayce 3976-13
Who, at the U.N., has been destroyed via power? In a world of more than 7 billion shades of gray what’s the objective measure for crossing over the line into world class evil?
One such benchmark is Imperialism.
When Adolf Hilter first became chancellor of Germany, Edgar Cayce stated that he was capable of being a truly good statesman, and that some of his policies were even spiritual in inception. Hitler would govern well as long as he didn’t engage in imperialism. Evidently Hitler crossed over to the dark side when he decided to annex other people’s property.
“(Q) Explain the relation between the information just given regarding Germany and the changes for this year, and the information already given through this channel on Hitler.
(A) Read that, my children, that has been given; that there was the destiny for the man, if he did not allow Imperialism to enter in – and it is entering. Hence must be called into question.” Edgar Cayce 3976-15
Cayce also spoke of Russia’s karma as a nation now overreacting with social expansionism in order to compensate for having been ruled so selfishly during the Tsarist era. Russians honestly, on a profoundly deep level, regard themselves as the world’s policemen against extreme capital selfishness.
“Europe is as a house broken up. Some years ago there was the experience of a mighty peoples being overridden for the gratification and satisfaction of a few, IRRESPECTIVE of any other man’s right. That peoples are going through the experience of being born again, and is the thorn in the flesh to many a political and financial nation in Europe, in the world…
(Q) What is the name of that nation referred to?
(A) Russia!” Edgar Cayce 3976-8
Notwithstanding this protective intent, evidently imperialism, as with Hitler, causes serious degradation. Mr. Putin, as a long-time self-professed Imperialist, has been personally spiritually destroyed ever since he adopted this as policy. Western imperialism to procure natural resources isn’t any better. Both Russia and the U.S. are being led by people who have been personally spiritually destroyed. These are people who evidently never learned from their mothers the common decency of not taking other people’s stuff.
Our nations seem to be a long way yet from recognizing Universal Law as pervasive and unavoidable.
In his book Nonzero, Robert Wright concludes that, based on increasing complexity and desire to connect with each other, we may be on the threshold of a new phase of development involving the creation of a unified global consciousness. Pulitzer Prize-winning biologist E. O. Wilson has posited that, genetically speaking, unthinking submission to the communal promotes the fitness of the members of the collective group.
These are “Big Picture” trends about which it can be sometimes be challenging to maintain an optimistic perspective, given the imperialistic quests by some of the larger world nations, when the inevitable path to peace may exceed the observer’s lifetime. Patience and long-suffering (no one’s favorite), according to Cayce, are repeated Godly attributes.
Meanwhile, until nations come around and measure up ethically to a Sunday School child, it looks like we’re going to have to exercise the recurring lesson of patience.
See my post re. Putin when he first advanced into the Ukraine.
