Deep disagreement with the actions and/ or views of others – it is a regrettable part of the human reality. We often encounter these deeply felt oppositions as political diversity, or philosophical disagreements, or interpersonal or social clashes etc. And, we don’t all handle these disappointments in the same way.
our response to these difficulties takes one of two diametrically opposed courses. Either we choose to assign blame and, in
turn, hate (thereby amplifying the problem). Or, we choose, instead, to pursue a remedy which
leaves our nobler ideals intact and in play (thereby truly conquering the issue
instead of amplifying it).
sounds right. Right? Well, maybe not to those who have already
chosen the option of blame and hate to cope with such conflicts. Indeed, those are hard minds to change. But, in an effort to do so, let’s just play
out their scenario using a higher magnification of the whole process.
with, let’s begin at the real beginning place.
And, those headwaters do not lie in this physical dimension of
life. They absolutely lie in that larger
metaphysical dimension of life where both God and Satan originate.
dimension, Satan, long ago, gave rise to a war between himself and God. And that war has now also engulfed this
physical dimension of life as the struggle between good and evil, between the
Light and the Darkness.
It is a
conflict which revolves around only one primary issue: Who gets
to be the authoritative truth-giver? In
other words, whose interpretation of life’s circumstances shall be considered the
correct interpretation? Or, said still another way, whose value system
will rule, God’s or Satan’s?
values can be accurately described as a system of principles which always produce
and promote peace, order, and universal good.
Satan’s values, on the other hand, can be accurately described as always
producing and promoting self-determination – thus, leading to a world based on
the chaotic idea of “every man is a truth
for this treacherous belief system is to pit each man against every other and
even against God, Himself, to create universal social conflict which will in
turn defeat God’s benevolent influence in this world. So, our disagreements with each other, from
interpersonal to international, become a very valuable psychological opportunity
to both the demons and the dark-hearted human minions who serve the
tactical use of that opportunity is not complicated. Their proddings are always aimed at deepening
and emotionally inflaming those disagreements as a means to both bloodshed and blindness
– a blindness which keeps one from seeing God’s more noble and truly effective solutions.
with others is, indeed, a regrettable part of the human reality. But those disagreements only become more
pervasive and more lacerating if we embrace the whispers of the Darkness.
