Can we heal our differences?

Can we heal our differences?

By Jon Rappoport

December 23, 2013

Is it possible? Is it possible to do without invoking and pushing a particular belief?

It appears that we are here to supply an answer to that question—all the while trying to fend off men who are determined to capitalize on our disagreements, exacerbate them, and use them to their advantage.

Even love, which is said to be the ultimate answer, is, in the hands of some, a business, a promotional tool, a political angle, an astounding perversion of the real thing.

I’ve met a few people who sold that article, and behind the scenes they were anything but compassionate.

As a child, I was suspicious of the love merchants. Their words were right, but the tune always sounded off: manufactured, tinny, layered on top of something else that was hidden.

I can offer this testimony. The love coming from one person can change a life, can open a door into a place never before seen. It is shattering. It exists beyond any suspicion of it. It has no doctrine, no prophet, no need to win, no cause.

It doesn’t count followers or converts. It lives, minute to minute. It creates trust, even in one riddled with doubts. And in extreme circumstances, it would lay down its own life.

And if it did, it would feel no need to create an institution in its name.

It’s impossible to account for it.

The world has such people in it.

I hope you have one.

They have seen through so much insanity and climbed so many mountains, and they do more than endure. They emerge, time after time, with their hearts whole.

These are heroes without banners or celebrations. They don’t require public conflicts to make themselves known or to prove their loyalty.

They delight in their own experience of others, and they offer help from their souls without pause.

Every society has used these people as models upon which to build myths and stories…but the actual people are here, and remain unknown.

They are paradise without structure. And it remains for everyone else to grasp more and more of their truth, without bending it or using it.

This is the struggle that began with the first glint of light on this planet, and it continues.

Let us celebrate the unsung, who need no celebration, in this season. The millions and millions of them.

Exit From the Matrix

Though it may not seem so, I have no quarrel with people of faith, faith in a particular God or prophet or messiah. I may say their faith is rendered and driven through a symbol, rather than a reality, and they in turn may think I’m wrong or crazy, but that’s of minor importance. I have no quarrel with their basic faith. We both believe in life everlasting, but with different shapes and meanings.

We both have an urge toward “greater and better.” And we both have experienced human beings who come to us with such genuine love, what we once were is transformed.

That is what I’m talking about here. And when you add to that golden group of transformers the mothers of babies, the number of extraordinary people in this world becomes even more than the millions I referred to.

Which makes one wonder: what is clogging up the human bloodstream? What is preventing the outbreak of peace? What is prolonging the suffering?

I have written and spoken much on that subject, and will continue to do so. But for now, I’ll leave it at this: born out of the infinite well of imagination, solutions to our problems abound everywhere, and have already been launched. In the coming year, I hope to present some of them with compelling descriptions. Why can’t 2014 be the year of solutions?

Thank you, Laura, always and forever. Thank you, Michel. Thank you, Greg. Thank you, Lawrence, Cori, and Eve.

Have a happy holiday season, everyone.

    Thank you Jon, have a happy holiday season also!

    Thanks so much for the beautiful expression of these thoughts.

  4. Messenger At The Crossroads says:

    Simply fabulous, Jon. I’m deeply touched. Solutions, yes! From many quarters there have been many recitations of the problems, but we need resuscitation, not recitation. You say rightly concerning symbol and reality… whoever “abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him”. Thank you, and may your holiday and the coming year be full of love.

  5. AmericaBeautiful says:

    Well done, Jon. Beautiful thoughts, well written, and so important to ponder.
    Merry Christmas to you and your lucky loved ones.

    Thank you Jon for who you are, and sharing your wonderful insights via your writings. Happy Holidays to you and your family as well. I’ve referred to 2013 as the Year of Awakening… and welcome 2014 as the Year of Light. May all beings realize their own authenticity.

  7. Börje Melin says:

    Beautifully said, Jon. Best of the season to you and yours too! This is the heart of the matter for all of us. Love simply is; spins no doctrines, faithful followers or expectations. Thanks for saying it so clearly.

    Barbara’s life and passion was her family. Nothing was ever too much for Barbara as she was one of the gentlest, kindest people you could ever meet. So much so that even at breakfast time on their farm everyone got to choose what they wanted to eat, from cereal to toast to cooked bacon, sausages and eggs. And it didn’t stop with Barbara’s own large family, as she would cook for everyone’s individual tastes and requests every time her extended family and friends visited. Barbara’s house was always overflowing with hungry mouths waiting to be served her delicious meals and baked treats. Never once did Barbara complain about the daily chores that never ceased, day after day, on their farm life. She would simply roll up her sleeves and deal with problems as they arose with poise and grace. Her genuine love of family and life was eternally reflected in her warmth and consistent daily dedication of love to her family’s needs. Even in Barbara’s later years when she battled cancer and endured indescribable pain, her concern was always for how others were feeling and how she felt so terrible for causing disruption to everyone’s lives.

    All those, including myself, who were fortunate to know Barbara were touched by a very special person. In our world today we tend to look for success as being something that is achieved outside the home and yet it is an honor to find oneself in the presence of a supremely advanced human being as they never ask the question “What do I want from life?” For in their unsung wisdom, they already know what life needs from them. Barbara’s daughter beautifully captured the essence of her mother’s personality in these simple, yet deeply profound words: “Mum didn’t just love. She made you feel loved.”

    • Love begins w Jesus Christ. She sounds like many wonderful people, but eternal life is not about doing good works, it is about knowing Jesus as a Savior.

      • Lee says:

        What if knowing Jesus’ savior message led to a road to finding the essence of his message inside oneself, to choose to save oneself, to find love within oneself by eliminating all interpreters between oneself and one’s creator and in doing so co-create directly with one’s creator without conflicting and distorted interference in dial-up?

        In my journeying throughout eternal life I have brought myself to here and now, not to select and surrender to someone else’s creative ideas and experiences of eternal life, but to continue living and expanding my eternal life by expanding creation and co-creation – Here, Now! But this is, of course, because my participation in eternity is miraculously allowed to be eternally different to yours, and yours to mine. I experience eternity eternally, not as a place far, far away, waiting for me to be gifted with permission to enter, because I have already entered it, and its alias, its moniker, is LIFE.

    One of your very best, imho! Happy Holidays and I look forward to reading your inspired work in 2014. Blessings and love…

    It’s been a pleasure and honor to correspond with you this year Jon, have a wonderful holidays with the ones you love 🙂

    Reblogged this on Laura Bruno's Blog and commented:
    This one did my heart good!

  13. Thanks Jon. Appreciate and admire what you write, say, think and inspire. Douglas McNicol.

  14. OzzieThinker says:

    To truly love, aside from infatuation and duty, you must affirm and covet (in the positive sense of that word) those that repulse.

    For eternal peace to begin, there can be no more repulsion.

  15. bleak says:

    Thank you, Jon, for expressing so eloquently and thoughtfully what is essential. All the best to you and family this holiday season.

  16. brad says:

    Whew, deeply perceptive and spot-on insights; leaves me speechless.

  17. Lorie Levine says:

    all is not lost , thus, healing is still possible or already a moot reality

  18. C. Burkey says:

    Thanks for this really great article. Have you seen the Tom Shadyac documentary called “I Am”? It’s well worth it to watch. Your article reminds me of it. I watched it again yesterday and it really is mind-blowing.
    I wish I knew a way to love/reach those people in my life who are so embedded in the Matrix that they think I am somewhat crazy. All I can do is be here, I guess. It’s knowing what to say sometimes that drives me to despair.
    Happy New Year, Mr. Rappoport!
