ONE THOUSAND YEARS OF YESTERDAYS-.
Imagine how postive would be to be able to capoture and file for an accesible access one thousnad yaers of wonderful yestrdays. All of this being accomplished under the wise guidance of God as He dicates our inner selves with such vital information.
The latest discoveries of some of my students and me have come to reinforce the exercise in obtaining reliable insights from some places, people and events from our past lives. The monitor from our computers plus some special instrumental music and adding some pleasant fragrances from first quality Indian incense have done wonders. Let’s always keep in mind that we as spiritual beings posses a total memory in our minds, so our brain which belongs to our human beings can get information from our total memory if we do it in a kind subtle way, suggesting never commanding to obtain this important data. We get easily lost in time and in space. The amazing results have helped us to get out from what seems to be a self-induced state of amnesia. We usually experience sharper and with more appropriate atmosphere sights and perceptions our emotional state awakens and becomes a very useful tool on this.
First it is highly recommended that for two whole weeks on a daily basis we get lost in two dozen different scenes, landscapes. It would be a wonderful action just to observe scenes in which no man-made constructions would be included at all. To observe doesn’t only mean to use our sight, but our other perception as well; for example our smelling sense, our listening skills, and our touching perception even our taste. So on the next two weeks, step by step let's add some little man-made constructions. By doing the above owe will succeed in making very reliable mental-emotional frameworks to work later on. For example; roads on which some fences made with stone would appear, next some stone bridges, the some far away castles, walls, temples, churches and houses. Another tip is always to realize the cardinal point on which we are heading, so from time to time we will turn around to face the opposite direction on which we are travelling. This simple action will help our brain to build a reliable framework regarding taking and following directions. We must allow the free manifestation of repressed emotions and forgotten very deep feelings.
Our next two weeks will be spent observing how people are dressed, staring to notice their sandals, boots, shoes etc, the pants, skirts, belts, blouses, shirts and hats. Were we on foot or on horsebacks even carriages? It will be very romantic to be able to recall admiring many fool moons in different settings.
Now, we can experiment the wonderful not polluted sunrises at different environments, for example at beaches facing the Atlantic Ocean and other times at beaches facing the Pacific Ocean, next we can imagine being standing up near an oasis, other times facing a wild river, afterwards facing a brook, a lake, a pool, yes an old pool.
Our next suggested action would be using a tree which seems to be standing alone in the wilderness , next we will sit down under the shade of this wonderful tree and start getting its vitalizing oxygen and just start enjoying our thinking by being grateful to the Divinity for these amazing harmonious moments.
Yes, I remember that guy. I believe it was the fellow from a certain part of Toronto who kept coming on here over and over insisting on fighting some nationalist fight and trashing Arabs. I don't see why people have to come here for nationalist agendas exclusively and then lecture others. They should go see shrinks, not us.
Talk to us about the Christian population in Lebanon. Enlighten us about the Mawarneh. Since I'm so ignorant about it what can you tell us about them from your own upbringing. Maybe I can relate....Are the Christians the only ones who have fears in Lebanon in 2012 out of the 17 sects? Can you care to elaborate on these issues? By the way, not all Lebanese Christians live in perpetual fear, and there isn't one faction among the Christians. I see no evidence that you're connected to the Christian Lebanese community, and as one who has been, and I don't see the evidence that you are. Can you give some of the liturgy that any Maronite would know? I will start. You can complete it, Samir: Qadishat Qadishat.... Prove you are who you say you are. You have no specifics about Lebanon.
There is only one reason why there has not been any peace in the Holy Land for the last 65 years: Israel would not accept the decision of the umpire, the UN. Israel was told to LET THE REFUGEES RETURN and Israel blocked their return. THAT IS THE SOLE REASON FOR ALL THE FIGHTING.
Peace has nothing to do with any negotiations or agreement. Israel is likely to continue doing exactly what she wants, until she is prevented from doing so, by a real military threat from a power that is superior to Israel's military might. That is one way that peace will come.
It is possible there will be some kind of steady decline in Israel's might, due to a loss of confidence, and then a gradual merging of the 2 States.
For the time being, Israel wants exclusive control and use of land that is owned by Arabs. There will be peace when the UN, US and EU decide they want peace. They would demand a One State Solution, and would insist on the return of all refugees. They are likely to do this because, to do otherwise, would jeopardize the international illusion that they support democratic values.
ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, PEACE IS COMING. The Arabs will get their land back, and the 2 communities will start to interact in an equitable and respectful manner.
Didi you read about the Conference that was held in Hevron, yesterday? There is loud talk about annexing Judea and Samaria to Israel or at least applying Israeli law there. As Basil pointed out, there is strong talk about ways of getting the Arabs to leave and one of them is to buy out or expell all the Arabs that have Jordanian citizenship.
Your talk of wanting to get something that is not yours back only makes the Israelis and Jews madder and you will realize too late that Jews and Israelis will fight back and you will be left with neither a state or land.
Make nice and you may get somewhere make terror and you will get NADA.
I haven't really ever seen a "Lebanese" person giving such vague comments about Lebanon and showing so much more interest in Israel than Lebanon. It's bizarre. C'est vraiment bizarre, mon ami, tu sais?
Sussan. ALL I CAN SAY IS "GO ISRAEL GO"
The Palestinians and Muslims will not give you a day of peace if you fold. It is your land. Keep it and treasure it. I SUPPORT YOU AND PRAY FOR YOU. PEACE OF JERUSALEM UNDER JEWISH RULE.
Tim. I must have slept through the period of time when Hamas stopped ruling Gaza. Perhaps you can fill me in when that ostracization took place. Jews do not throw their opponents from rooftops. Who are these so called opponents in Israel that you are talking about. What about Arafat taking over South Lebanon and making it into his own fiefdom?
No because Hamas presently rules Gaza. But Hamas won the Palestinian elections of 2006, yet they do not rule both the West Bank and Gaza. By emergency decree allowed under the Palestinian Constitution, Al Fatah has rule over the West Bank, so Hamas has been ostracized to Gaza, where they are running the economy atrociously. As for throwing people off rooftops, is this something that you witnessed during Lebanese Civil War? Opponents within Israel are clearly people like the assassin of Yitzhak Rabin. No, he was not thrown from a rooftop. As for Yasir Arafat, first of all he is dead. Second of all, the Palestine Liberation Organization is no longer in Lebanon. Third of all, we all have to deal with events by current standards, and it sounds to me that you are still traumatized by the 1975 to 1990 civil war. We can all commemorate the past, which is the reason why Yad Vashem exist, but we all cannot be consumed by it. Because we cannot go in and negate the past. What has happened, has happened.
OK. Let the past be the past and lets start with today. Israel is in control of Judea and Samaria so lets not bother to talk about it, as what happened before today is the past. You know , it is a Croque to say that the PLO is not in Lebanon. Yes I would like to commemorate the past, but only past accomplishments and remember as a lesson past failures.
BTW, if in the current or the future Hamas or Hizbulla tries to harm civilians in Israel this forum will not make a peep if Israel deals extremely harshly with them. And lets agree when the past ends and current history starts for discussion purposes.
Why let the past simply be the past? Why won't you answer the question about extremism on both sides? You talked about the PLO taking over parts of the South well so did Israel with its SLA proxy army. Did you forget that part? Did you also forget that the Israeli Defense Forces left the Lebanese Forces (Phalangists) vulnerable in the mountains in a very sudden way as recounted by Commander Paul Andari who was on the field? Paul Andari protested about how Israel left them vulnerable to the Druze, and they did get shot at badly. Go read Paul Andari's account of the war. Since you can read Lebanese, it's called "Hathee Shahadatee". This is my witness. Again, I had friends who fought on the front lines. That's why many of the Phalangists don't share your love for Israel. I guess you're not aware of that past. The only groups that remained allied was the SLA, the Cedars. The SLA men who went to Israel were treated like traitors by Israel, though they risked their lives. What's your answer to Andari's charge about how the Phalangists were left exposed? The SLA wanted to continue fighting, but the way Israel didn't coordinate things or plan things, they could not at all. They had to fold.
Israel didn't even properly coordinate its withdrawal from Lebanon with the the SLA. As a fellow I knew who was super active in the Lebanese Forces who definitely did not like Syria, he said that Israel was bad news, and it did more harm than good. Some believed Israel would save them, but it only disappointed them. Are you sure you want to discuss Lebanon?
I do not think you are going to get an answer from him, because you are dealing with nothing more but a bitter old man. If we are going to discuss peace and coexistence then that bitterness, regardless who it is from, has to be put aside.
Fortunately, after awhile it is seen that these types of individuals, are just going to viciously attack others, regardless you they are, and they get banned. You can say it is a form of censorship, but would not I also get banned if I keep telling everyone I would kill them if they do not agree for me? That is what we are trying to alleviate, but others just want to feed into it. For the best way to address it, is by learning about each other. Also, it is by looking into ourselves, and learning about who we are. I was 17, before I knew anything about my Hungarian Calvinist and Sephardic Jewish background, but it made me interested in learning who everybody else was too.
