My response to AJC columnist Jay Bookman’s article today on his blog: (Link: http://jaybookman.blog.myajc.com/2017/02/23/opinion-a-myth-for-every-purpose/
Interesting and thought-provoking article.
What it highlights to me is that we are breaking into another layer of consciousness as a human race and we are going through its growing pains of mental and spiritual chaos.
However, as I reflect, I realize that there have always been different versions of reality. i.e., the white and black versions during my childhood of Jim Crow in Georgia. Moreover, there have always been layers of truth based on the levels of consciousness one can contain in one’s awareness. That is where our artists excel.
However, today, I see the manipulation of truth deliberately to present what one sees before oneself to be called its opposite, or lies with malevolent intent. That lie is Satan at work (maybe not Satan as a person, but Satan as a cosmic force). But, Satan does not exist, you say. Do not be too certain in your assurance of that.
That kind of malevolent and conscious lie is evil personified, and deep in their hearts the people who perpetuate those types of lies know that they are lies and that they have become liars, as a result of their conscious lies. A spiritual truth in this universe is that evil destroys, victim and perpetrator, alike.”
