Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
The US President and officials in his administration believe in outward remedies to the ills of this world based upon their adherence to particular political, secular, and religious philosophies. The basic idea that, if you acknowledge and address the grievances of people (like use government to give them jobs) they will stop terrorising and killing is political agenda based on the false assumption that outward lack is the cause of killing and terrorism. The cause of terrorism is a conscious anchored in and a conscience informed by outward forms. Even people with no lack of material want terrorize and kill.
The answer to terrorism of all kinds is a conscious anchored in and a conscience informed by the immediacy of Presence itself. In Presence, identity transcends outward forms whether traditional, secular, religious, political, conservative, liberal, etc. Traditional forms are often the basis for killing and terrorism; even Christian tradition forms, as are progressive or liberal forms and conservative forms.
It is amazing that political people just stay anchored to ideologies that at best have no impact on and, at worse, fuel even more of what they are fighting against.
Adherence to outward traditional, liberal, conservative, secular, political, and religious form is the core of the problem. It is the source of the rot. Identity with any outward form, that is, a conscious anchored in and a conscience informed by outward forms, rather than the direct and immediate experience of Presence itself, is the cause of terrorism. Poverty or lack of education has nothing to do with it. Rich people murder as well as poor. Rich people are terrorists as are poor. Educated people murder and terrorize as do uneducated people.
Outward governmental, religious, and educational institutions are not the answer. They are the source of the problem. There is another way. This way anchors faith and identity in the immediate experience of Presence itself as the very essence of individual conscious and conscience. The experience is not ideologically, theologically, intellectually, or institutionally anchored; it is directly inspired by the experience itself. This way is eternal life even in the expired and dead forms of intellectualized being.
The way of outward (expired) man is the way of the world. They way of inward (inspired) Presence is the way of eternal life.
