We are One

Racism

Racism is a structural issue and not an individual issue. How many people do you personally know who are racist? I mean those whom you hang out with often. Certainly none of my friends are. I remember my Grandfather was to a small degree, but I see him as a product of a culture. You see we are like those whom we spend the most time with. It is in our nature to be copy cats so to speak. So it is a gift when someone mirrors the opposite of who we are. This helps us define the person we wish to be.

So what do I mean by structural? I mean our race/cultural mind is racist. I mean it is built into the system on a foundational level. We live in a duality so for every yes, there is a no. For every white there is a black. Society of course softens and manipulates this to be less than obvious, though if you look for the duality it stares you in the face. What Spirituality does is ask you to see beyond the surface into the soul of the other. It asks you to be color blind. This is difficult because the ego mind or mankind is asking you to do just the opposite. Cognitive dissonance results from the conflict which arises. Thus all the unrest surrounding racism. To be perfectly clear though, most of the rioting we have observed of late is connected to economic inequality and not racism. Certain groups use the news and manipulate it for their purpose. Which has been going on since the beginning of civilization I might add. Racism is just the excuse. Everyone has an agenda so don’t knock them for expressing theirs. As the saying goes, we all get what is coming to us! As I like to say, what you give – you receive. At the foundation, folks are re-acting to their fears. We all have the choice to act or re-act. Acting comes from Love, compassion, and a concern for others. Re-acting is always fear and comes from outside the self. Thus the “re”acting. Get it? Action comes from your core as a choice and expresses who you chose to be. Reacting comes from the fear that surrounds us all. It is reflected back from other self. Fear, False – Evidence – Appearing – Real. The ego offers it up as reality… it is not. Fear is like a riptide that pulls you down and unless you let go, it will finish you. Go with the flow means to center into yourself and let F.E.A.R. dissolve into the nothingness which it is.

The dictionary version of racism states it is about differences perceived in others. From where I sit, we are all different, so discrimination(seeing differences) is natural. Of course people are attracted to those they perceive to be like them. It is a process of identity. It is a process of belonging to something greater than the self. It is a perception of loving. “Projection makes perception.” (ACIM) So Racism is a form of self love.

Our social structure of the haves and have nots is also once again, not racism but economic inequality founded in duality and the need for polarity. Mankind’s incipient need to label and mislabel leads to disharmony and anarchy! Society will never reflect equality, because it cannot by its very nature! The landscape may change, People of Color may someday be the majority and controlling “race” but the beast will be the same. So our take away here is to love and judge not. There will always be a gradient of social structure based on differences, at least here at this level of the journey. I think what folks sense is the next stage or density of existence, 4th density. (see LawofOne.info) For now we need to work on learning our lessons and accepting our roles in this density of self awareness (3rd density). We are One means simply there is no other. There is no out there, out there! There is no one to discriminate against but the self.
