Nifty! Thank you for this uplifting contribution!
When a man stands this tall all we ca do is look up.
Boy have I got a lot to say about what I'm posting next.
First it is the music of the spirit it sings of truly germinal truths.
I have often said here in these forums that
"Sacrifice alone has the power to help this world."
Only when that which is high places itself beneath that which is low can that which is low be raise up.
This knowledge I have from The I Ching. and a Chinese way of thought dating back 3000 years.
This way of thought continues though time to meet me in my time of need.
And to bring me to a beneficial understanding of my world.
I was not born to this way of thinking but rather I was dropped off in the middle of the Christian-Judaic tradition and told to find my own way home.
I have no Idea why my path led me so far afield that my views on many important topics can only be expressed with a great deal of back tracking to provide a proper context for what I'm wish to say.
But one basic tenant of the knowledge I journey so far to find, can be found in all the major religions..
"Sacrifice alone has the power to help this world.."
And that this sacrifice consists of the higher placing it self below the low to raise it up. Why is this a sacrifice?
It is because the higher could of it's own nature rise to heaven.
While the lower is oppressed by the heavens and cannot of itself rise.
So the very thing that oppresses the lower alone has the power to raise it up.
How is this to be done?
There is but one way this CAN be done.If the Higher should postpone it 's inevitable rise and instead of following it's own nature to go upward it sinks downward until it is below the lower and only then does it allow itself to rise.
And in that ascension elevates the lower so that it proceeds the higher in the highers return to heaven.
The higher was on a mission. The Higher did not have to accept the mission, It choose the mission, rather than to ascend as it's nature requires of it. To instead sink that the lower might receive it's due.
So on to my post. This man is one deep and beautiful thinker, why he could even be Chinese!! LOL
Yet he comes from a totally different tradition..basically your tradition.
Give this old jew your time and he will elevate your understanding.. He stands at the very beginning of time and sees with holy eyes what much of two religions have been blind to.
He brings revaluation to all traditions that seek to serve God.
Now don't you pass him by ya hear? LOL
A fellow traveler
Listening at the feet of this Rabbi I'm reminded of another Rabbi, a fictional Rabbi
One that thrilled and blew me away with his naked honesty.
He was a creation of the Sopranos crime family series.
A woman who has been paying off an obsequious Priest for years,
To save her conscience, begins to fear for her soul.
She wants a more unbiased opinion on her chance of escaping hell.
So she goes to see a Rabbi famed for his gentle nature and deep wisdom.
She tells him every thing, the murders, the robberies, the black mail, the drugs and the whores that comprise the Sopranos family business.
She tells him I know all these things are wrong and very damaging to people.
How do I save my soul and the souls of my children?
At last the Rabbi speaks and wrights for her a prescription to save both her and her children.
You must go home.
You must take both your children by the hand and taking nothing with you but the clothes on your backs leave that house forever, Go to a shelter until you can find work and make a new home for yourself and your children.
You must never again take even a dime from a source you know is anathema to God.
He didn't even try to pull his punches. After all her soul was at stake.
Alas the devil won that round.
I am pleased to have pleased you.":O}
Mr Robeson was a great man.
The entire Communist scare was another STUPID action by entitled people. Communism has never threatened the people of the United States in the USA. I suppose the working theory of the monsters in charge of this great land was "If the Communists are bad then the Capitalists are good."
IMHO, the Capitalists have darn near destroyed this country. Communism has burdened other countries, not this one.
Very interesting and very enlightening. Thank you VERY much for guiding us toward this great man of learning.
