Wisdom Blog Series 2: Love and Hate
[Wisdom from Channeler Rana of Year 2150 AD: Chapter Two: LOVE AND HATE: Booklet “The Prophetess, Conversations With Rana (and Jon Lake, Ph.D. Student, who went to sleep in 1976 and awoke 174 years into the future in a culture known as the Macro Society),” Published 1976] [EXERPT from a larger collection of conversations compiled by Thea Alexander]
Using the limited micro view, you can only like or love others who enhance your ego by providing you with pleasure, power, or possessions. Micro pleasure is the result of what happens to your power and your possessions.
Remember that first, pride, then the physical body, in that order, are man’s two most valued micro possessions. Thus, whenever you see yourself hating or disliking others, you will find that they have threatened your possessions or your power.
Taking a more evolved point of view you will see that when you hate anyone what you really hate is yourself; first, because you were inadequate to get, or keep what you wanted which damages your pride; secondly, because every other person is a part of our universal macro self.
Hatred of others is very often hatred of self, resulting from our inability to accept, appreciate, and grow from, and thus, forgive our own failures. People often collect their failures, Jon, and carry them through life like some horrible shadow to be ashamed of. This nibbles perniciously at one’s self-concept. From a micro view failure is often seen as a terrible thing that lasts forever.
If you have but one life, when youth is gone all the opportunities that require youth are gone forever. Thus, growing old is growing failure. Death, then, is the ultimate failure—particularly ‘sad’ when it happens to the young. “What a tragedy,” micro man says.
If you believe that failure is bad, unjust, and forever, then it is impossible for you to like yourself when you fall. AND we all fail for as long as we live and continue to present ourselves with opportunities to experience new challenges, as long as we GROW!
As your failures accumulate, your self-hatred increases until you hate yourself so much that the pain becomes unbearable. Then if you can’t remember that in the long run blaming others doesn’t help, you will use the psychological defense mechanism of displacement and displace your self hate on others in order to temporarily reduce your painful burden of guilt (self-hate).
Micro man likes and loves himself when he is able to temporarily forget his many guilt’s or failures. Therefore, anyone who helps him forget (that is, deny unpleasant realities) is a friend who can be liked or loved, depending on the degree of amnesia he stimulates.
Macro love, on the other hand, is unconditional love, because it sees the Macro reality that all is one and that what is perfect for its time and place.
From a Macro view every experience is perfect since failure or success, good or bad, pleasure or pain, are merely micro, one sided, views of the perfect whole which includes both sides.
When you can see that all is one, there can be no possessions to cling to, no failure that is not also a success, no pride that can be damaged, and no limits to your power to experience everything and anything that you desire to experience and believe you will experience.
Only from a Macro view can you love yourself and others as parts of yourself.
Only from a Macro view can you balance micro hate with Macro love, and perfectly balance negativity with positivity.
Only from a Macro view can you remember who you are at all levels. This is because the Macro view includes the whole microcosmic-Macrocosmic continuum, which presents man as an infinite series of ever-greater selves, from the smallest to the greatest (as with a series of concentric circles or ever larger pyramids within pyramids).
Micro love and hate result from desperately grasping for pride, power and possessions.
Macro love results from walking through life with an ‘open hand,’ which clings to nothing, lest it crush the very object (person?) which rests lightly on its palm.
From the Macro view there is no reason to cling desperately to the parts when you have the whole—forever!
Thus, you who give up everything, gain everything; and you who try to hang on to everything, lose everything.
As long as you protect and cling to possessions you will experience pain, fear, hate, and one war after another.
Hate, then, is the result of mentally separating yourself and your belongings from the rest of the universe.
