It was only recently I discovered that the Allies bombed various Swiss cities during WWII.
Of course the Allies then went on to charge various Germans with war-crimes at Nuremberg.

Comment on Amor Fati and the Path of Devotion – Love Of Fate by Afshin Nejat http://www.kawther.info/wpr/2015/04/19/amor-fati-and-the-path-of-devotion-love-of-fate/comment-page-1#comment-64655 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 04:30:48 +0000 http://www.kawther.info/wpr/?p=33276#comment-64655 It is not possible to reconcile this form of simple pantheistic monism with the moral requirements of ethical dualism, which states that Good and evil are distinct and irreconcilable. If you claim that evil beings “are god, too”, and that their victims “are god, too”, then you have god murdering god, raping god, devouring god, putting god through hell. Why? But this behavior exists, and is “part of the universe”, so why is it that Yoga doesn’t actually condone it?

The truth is that this sort of monism is a metaphysical “paper tiger” and has no logical or moral power. What is real is the conflict between Good and evil, and evil cannot be treated as equally divine, or really even at all divine. Divinity has the moral high ground only insofar as it is capable of destroying this cancer within itself, so if Yoga is to applied to anyone, it is to applied to the “God” which has yet to embody HIS duty to destroy evil and live up to the characteristics which make “Divinity” a noble title.

But the whole interpretation of Krishna’s teaching to Arjuna is long ago distorted into a false picture of what is truly being taught. Krishna is explaining to Arjuna precisely this: Take up arms against evil, do your duty, stop complaining about how horrible the battle is, take the side of righteousness and avoid fleshly concerns which destroy the moral senses in favor of the physically entrained bodily senses.

Gnostic interpretations of religion are the only way to properly reinvigorate them into a meaningful teaching for humans with any moral and cognitive relevance going beyond mere Machiavellian pragmatism.

Comment on Amor Fati and the Path of Devotion – Love Of Fate by maybeperfect http://www.kawther.info/wpr/2015/04/19/amor-fati-and-the-path-of-devotion-love-of-fate/comment-page-1#comment-64654 Mon, 20 Apr 2015 02:16:30 +0000 http://www.kawther.info/wpr/?p=33276#comment-64654 It might be possible that everything is and always has been perfect, in every essential sense, regardless of our apparent capacity to be conscious of the concept. I mean, what’s the sense of being God if you can’t manifest your will in your life(lives,) so what’s not to love? God might be the only one who knows what we really want, and we may be given it(or had it manifested in us) whether we know whether we are or not. What’s not to love?
Apparently, God is accomplishing whatever is necessary to maintain infinite existence. What’s not to love?
Our sole regret, could we be said to have one, might be that we are incapable of being adequately grateful, and that if there is such a thing as a mistake, that we might have failed to live up to the role we have been asked to play within the apparently infinitely magnificent majesty of it all, defying human description. What’s not to love?
For “me,” the question seems, which attributes of the creator might I strive to emulate? But then, I suppose it might depend on who I am at the end of the day. Or perhaps I should say who we all are at the end of the day.

Bhaktivedanta Swami.I highly recommend it.

Comment on The Latest Episode of Ethnic Cleansing in Jerusalem by Helen http://www.kawther.info/wpr/2015/04/02/the-latest-episode-of-ethnic-cleansing-in-jerusalem/comment-page-1#comment-64608 Fri, 03 Apr 2015 04:35:35 +0000 http://www.kawther.info/wpr/?p=33185#comment-64608 how about we start forcing the jews out and off the lands that were occupied by pals before they came in and stole it? how would that work for the thieves? 90% of these so called jews are European.. they never had any right to that land to begin with.. just because they converted doesn’t make this their land!! the fact that many of the people of those lands started out jews and converted doesn’t mean they they don’t belong to that land.. when jews ruled that land thousands of years ago they ruled it for 90 years and an area smaller than Jerusalem was what they ruled.. people need to learn their history, since the jews refuse to learn theirs..

Comment on The Latest Episode of Ethnic Cleansing in Jerusalem by Eileen K. http://www.kawther.info/wpr/2015/04/02/the-latest-episode-of-ethnic-cleansing-in-jerusalem/comment-page-1#comment-64606 Fri, 03 Apr 2015 02:41:55 +0000 http://www.kawther.info/wpr/?p=33185#comment-64606 This is nothing new; the Zionist authorities have been violating Article 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention for decades (this Article forbids any occupying nation to replace the population of the occupied with its own citizens). For decades, Israel has been doing just that – replacing the indigenous Palestinian inhabitants of E. Jerusalem with fanatical Jewish settlers, many of whom had originally arrived from the USA. If it had been any of the Zionist Entity’s neighbors doing the same, the MSM would be screaming bloody murder – hypocrisy at its worst.
