Condition Yourself for WarSubmitted by Sincerus on Sun, 01/27/2013 - 15:17
Have we been born into the New World Order, destined to become New World Orphans? Remember that saying, you reap what you sow? Well, it's almost harvest time. We have been allowing our Government to sow seeds of destruction, vengence and hatred in all corners of the world. I fear these people can not ever come to love us after the injuries we have done to them. Can you imagine being a child born ten years ago in Afghanistan? Growing up with nothing but drones, bombs, destruction and death -- and still (if lucky enoughh?) living in the midst of it!?!?
My gut is telling me there will be many, many more wars coming in the not so distant future. The powers that be are becoming desperate to keep the curtain pulled down over the illusion that many in our society have fallen prey to. I will not delve into the illusions, because many of us here have already pulled that curtain back.
There will be more physical wars, but I feel it is important, to remember, to understand that there is also a spiritual war going on. A war for/of mind and soul. A war of ideas. We must condition ourselves to battle these wars on all fronts. This is a war of Principles.
In the court of public opinion, the curtain is already inching back, little by little. I think with a little patience, the illusions will dissolve, and the people will recover their true sight. Then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost.

I would like to end this post with a story that was passed down in my family. The story of the Black wolf and the White wolf. It's an old cherokee tale that I think is worth sharing.
“Grandfather, why do people fight?”. “Well” the old Cherokee replies “we all have two wolves inside us, you see. They are in our chest. And these wolves are constantly fighting each other”. . “There is a white wolf and a black wolf. The black wolf is filled with fear, anger, envy, jealousy, greed, and arrogance. The white wolf is filled with peace, love, hope, courage, humility, compassion, and faith. They battle constantly”. Then he stops. “But grandfather, which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “They both win.”
“You see, if I only choose to feed the white wolf, the black one will be hiding around every corner waiting for me to become distracted or weak and jump to get the attention he craves. He will always be angry and always fighting the white wolf.
But if I acknowledge him, he is happy and the white wolf is happy and we all win. For the black wolf has many qualities – tenacity, courage, fearlessness, strong-willed and great strategic thinking – that I have need of at times and that the white wolf lacks. But the white wolf has compassion, caring, strength and the ability to recognize what is in the best interest of all. You see son, the white wolf needs the black wolf at his side. To feed only one would starve the other and they will become uncontrollable. To feed and care for both means they will serve you well and do nothing that is not a part of something greater, something good, something of life. Feed them both and there will be no more internal struggle for your attention. And when there is no battle inside, you can listen to the voices of deeper knowing that will guide you in choosing what is right in every circumstance.
Peace, my son, is the Cherokee mission is life. A man who has peace inside has everything. A man who is pulled apart by the war inside him has nothing. How you choose to interact with the opposing forces within you will determine your life. Starve one or the other or guide them both.”
