Ultimate Fulfillment 86

by Christopher Lovejoy on November 28, 2015

In my experience, harmony with infinity, with infinitude, with infinite potential, with the field of infinite possibilities, is not an easy relationship to establish, not an easy relationship to master, as or when we apply the will to “making it so” in contrast to being a witness to “letting it be”.

If all we did in our lives, day after day after day, was to “let it be”, to let it be easy, to let whatever happens be okay, harmony in our lives could be taken for granted; it would be everyone’s default position: the infinity of unity would be tapped with ease; everyone could live in harmony.

In my relatively peaceful part of the world, in Toronto, Canada, where I now reside, I look around and I see a separate peace prevail. True, I don’t see a lot of fear in people’s eyes, but I do feel and sense a pervasive weariness and unhappiness; I feel and sense the cool, even chilly, divisiveness of a palpable vibe of mistrust, or else I observe the busyness of a hurried nonchalance as people go about their business.

In a world where a less-than-human species is steeped in separation and exclusion, at work and in play, in the news and entertainment media, under the pall of a deeply conditioned, controlled, conformed, contrived consensus reality, harmony with others, in keeping with infinity, is not an easy experience to come by. In a world where the human capacity for concentration has been reduced to no less than 8 seconds (less than goldfish, who can hold their attention for 9 seconds), we have allowed ourselves, thanks to our ubiquitous devices, to be easily distracted, easily deceived, easily manipulated, easily addicted, easily controlled. We are a calm, comfortable species being led to the slaughter.

In short, we deserve to die – in soul, body, or spirit (take your pick).

This is the ugly reality that I see lurking in the shadows pretty much everywhere I go, online or off. We have been subdued by prison-planet surveillance, by the sanctimony of political correctness, by subtle depopulation and eugenics agendas, by the occult accumulation of global political and economic power so concentrated as to take the breath away. We have settled into a very narrow bandwidth of possibilities.

In the darkness of all of this reptilian coldness, greyness, meanness, harshness, fakeness, a glimmer of harmony for humanity can be seen, if one knows where to look. No, you won’t find it in the politicians (who have been conditioned to follow someone else’s agenda), you won’t find it in the mainstream newscasters (who have been scripted into oblivion), and you certainly won’t find it in the enforcers (who are being turned into rabid abusers and murderers, “just following orders” the best way they know how). Quite simply, you will find it, this glimmer of hope, in those who would speak, are speaking, and are willing to speak truth to (abused, abusive) power in the face of rejection, ridicule, and retribution.

Remember, everyone wants everyone else to “stay calm and chive on”.

In a way, this is precisely what we need to do for the sake of harmony, in keeping with unity, in tune with infinity. By contrast, however, this is precisely what we don’t want to do, paradoxically speaking, if what we want in this world is to establish genuine peace and prosperity for one and all.

In ancient China, during the Western Zhou Dynasty (1046-771 BC), peace and prosperity reigned for one and all because the people of this time knew well the value of divine authority and guidance, which inspired Confucius, some centuries later, to draw on its faith and wisdom.

Confucius advocated a set of five cardinal virtues whose roots drew on the soils of filial (paternal) piety and brotherly love. These patriarchal soils, if tilled with care, yielded the flower of benevolence (the first virtue), whose fragrance made the practice of righteousness (the second virtue) tolerable – and desirable, if informed by propriety (the third virtue). These three virtues, practiced consistently, provided wisdom (the fourth virtue), which in turn allowed faith (the fifth virtue) to feed the soils well enough to make them worthy of cultivating benevolence.

One could, in light of the matriarchal emphasis of today, in keeping with the socially engineered agenda to keep global population in check by reversing the polarity between masculine and feminine in favor of the feminine (by feminizing men, by masculinizing women, and by confusing the boundaries between the two), view these virtues in a more motherly, sisterly light, but I think the results would be the same: filial (maternal) piety and sisterly love, if tilled with care, could very well bring about peace and prosperity for all, but the peace would be submissive and the prosperity subdued.

These five virtues – benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and faith – planted in the soils of filial piety and brotherly, sisterly love, hold out the hope for a pentagonal stability for China (and beyond), even in this day and age. Sacred unity would enable divine harmony to prevail with the hope that the fruits of peace and prosperity could be picked and enjoyed by everyone – not just by a privileged few.

And yet, … and yet, what are we to make of the persecution, since 1999, of a growing minority in China known as the Falun Gong or the Falun Dafa, whose numbers are said to have exceeded 100 million? Under the leadership of Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, persecution was extensive, covert, even brutal, including the use of unspeakable torture, organ harvesting, and outright murder for the more intransigent practitioners. With a recent changing of the guard and the rise of the more fatherly Xi Jinping at around the same time that the fatherly Pope Francis came to power, such persecution has been dampened. Indeed, mere mention of such persecution has been deemed verboten by those “in the know”.

Why is this so?

Because such persecution is an ugly stain on the body politic of China, not at all in keeping with the five cardinal virtues that would bring stability and harmony, peace and prosperity, to a growing, thriving economy in China and to a growing, thriving international presence.

Note well that righteousness is sandwiched between benevolence and propriety. “Be nice and play nice”, and righteousness will find its own way without calling attention to itself in such obvious and embarrassing ways. The lovely and talented Anastasia Lin, crowned Miss World Canada, and recently declared persona non grata, denied a landing visa to Sanya in China, and barred from competing for the title of Miss World, has not been playing nice with this potentially volatile issue. She wants it to be known globally that China has a grievous human rights record. If she were to win the title of Miss World, she could very well realize her goal, but at what cost to the social and moral fabric of China?

Truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance – the three cardinal virtues in the lotus of love that Falun Gong practitioners practice with conviction – are not compatible with the cardinal virtues of Confucius that would bring pentagonal stability to the house of harmony that could be China. For one thing, the lotus of love paves the way for matriarchy; for another, the loss of righteousness as virtue would leave the populace of China vulnerable to predation in a world where predation is par for the course. Anastasia, you mean well, but there is a broader context to consider. Perhaps, in time, the leadership in China will find it within their hearts to come clean, but now is not the time. Not yet.

I am deeply saddened when I read about the persecution of Falun Gong and I am deeply sympathetic to those would advocate on their behalf, but I am also aware of the complexities of a world undergoing profound change, away from enslavement and into empowerment.
