Heartland Security


By Robert Cinque

Humanity’s long history of self neglect and abuse has resulted in a world in which suffering and brutality are considered normal and inevitable. Even spiritual luminaries like the Buddha proclaimed that life itself is suffering and taught his followers to renounce desire in order to reach liberation. Is life really suffering? Is there truly such a thing as Original Sin? Overpopulation? Scarcity? We are constantly being bombarded by news of threats to our well being and how we need to rely on our leaders and experts to rescue us. Fragmented, bewildered, hungry, and clueless, we stumble forward eating the crumbs that have been left for us in a path that leads to more and more despair, confusion, and desperation. Are we really threatened by ruthless enemies who must be destroyed or are we being hoaxed into a fear based position? Here is my answer:

Life continues to arise in spite of countless deaths, therefore, death is no threat to life. From the mortal bodymind’s point of view, death is indeed a threat and must be avoided at all costs. Does the fact that we die mean that we are actually threatened? Is there really any way to avoid our vulnerabilities? An even more important question is “If so, should we?”

I have noticed that our vulnerability as born beings is easily exploitable and is being used as a method of control by those who purport to have our best interests at heart. However, the great value of our vulnerability and enormous sensitivities are far more important than the way in which we use them, and allow them to be used against us.

They are doorways into the central core of the heart.

Far from being mere liabilities or weaknesses, our vulnerabilities as human beings represent our greatest opportunity for illumination and realization of life, or truth, itself. Those who promise us security and safety are false prophets who themselves are scared to death. The great news is that our actual Self, the sum total of all Existence, is not threatened at all. Change and death only prove this and are reasons for great confidence in life, not doubt or despair, which is how we routinely interpret them. Change and death keep us sensitive to the preciousness and sacredness of the Presence of Life and are our great allies in the living of an inspired life. Feel good promises and campaign rhetoric are not going to sustain us for very long. What we need is Food, not pictures of food.

How did we get into this mess? The short answer is that we have misinterpreted the data of our experience. We have assumed that we are threatened by change and death and that we must cling to the shiny trinkets sold to us by the smiling but dreadful faces of the religious and scientific intelligentsia.

The first lie we unknowingly swallow is that individuation means separation and that we are marooned on an island of flesh. This assumption is just that, an assumption that we plaster onto our actual situation, which is unity and coherence with all of life. This is easily verifiable and Factual and can be observed everywhere. Humanity has traded its birthright for a bowl of porridge and, so far, has been led around by the nose by cunning minds for centuries. We are like the mother with 3 kids who puts up with her husband’s abuse because she figures she has nowhere else to go. She is so vulnerable to her love for her children, she puts up with abuse for their sake. The human race is bewildered, in shock, and easily manipulated. The Nazis, for example, learned how to program people by shattering the psyche through torture and trauma and to then insert false ideas into their victim’s vulnerable minds. In the same way, humanity is being electro-shocked and programmed into panic through black psy-ops like 911 and the economic crisis.

Underneath all this garbage shines the Wonder and Glory of Life, in all its Innocence and Grandeur, radiating everywhere in all directions. It is up to us to see through the lie and stand in the actual condition in which we all inhere: seamless continuity between consciousness and matter, God and self, whole and part. Separation from Life, from God, Truth, Love is not even possible. The ego, the assumption of separation, of abandonment and betrayal, has, in fact, never really existed, except in the imagination of countless millions of individuals. It appears to be real but is in fact something we are slathering on to Reality which is always completely free and egoless and under no illusions about its own nature as all pervading Presence. This Life, this Consciousness, what we call God, is all that exists. No individual has ever had any actual existence independent of This. There is only one Self and you are it, You in your entirety, not just this personality we call “me”. God became man, the Word became flesh, the Face of the Divine Being shows up everywhere like a Grinning Fire. There is no reason to emotionally withdraw from this and become a dangerous psychotic who eats pictures of food, starving to death, endlessly insane and extremely hostile and dangerous. This monster leads its creator around like a whipped dog.

It is up to us to reclaim our actual position as conductors and embodiments of the infinite Current of Life and stand as free beings living passionately and intimately with, and as, Existence itself…the Heart of All. We have bought and sold so many lies that we now live in a plastic world that we think is Reality itself. Overcoming this self imposed illusion is the most needed and urgent task for all of us and represents authentic spiritual practice that produces real results in the real world. I suspect that the wool has been pulled over our eyes as Nature’s intelligence test, to see if we will accept what we are told or will realize the actual Position that we are in.

Christ is reported to have said, The wheat will be separated from the chaff. This is accomplished by flooding the world with shiny trinkets and false gods, to see who will take the bait and who will see that there is a hook hidden within it.

There is a famous painting at the Vatican, which depicts the hundreds of scholars and priests commissioned by Constantine, marching toward Nicaea where the books of the New Testament were chosen and adopted as sacred dogma. Leading this august body is the Greek god Mercury who flies in the air ahead of the entourage. Why is a mythical, pagan archetype leading the most important Council of Christendom?

Mercury is a poisonous element that is mixed with gold ore as a way of extracting the gold from the impurities and detritus with which it is chemically bound in rock. The mercury bonds itself to the ore, leaving the gold behind. In the same way, the poisonous lie of scientific materialism and religious provincialism binds itself to the hardened heart of Man, leaving the Gold and the Wheat, free at last.

 

Waking up in Prison

Authentic spiritual practice and discipline are founded and grounded in responsibility, not beliefs or metaphysics, which are way downstream from What is always already the case: seamless unity between matter and consciousness, self and God, part and whole. Our emotional recoil, our collapse from Reality, from Love, our assumption of separation from Truth, creates the stressful search for unity and meaning, which cannot be found because we are pushing it away. Truly, there is no discrete entity living inside my head or heart, there is only Reality fractalizing into versions of Itself that I call “me”. Failure to make this distinction results in a confusion that prevents me from being intimate with That which lives itself as me and everything else. The part is lived by the whole and there exists a deep and passionate intimacy between the two.

Thus, to “repent” means to turn back from our foray into identification with one side of the equation (matter/body), and, to “sin no more”, becomes a sacred commitment to face and embrace Reality’s descent into the body, that which I actually am. That’s right. I am the living, embodied Presence of Reality and so are you. We are embodied consciousness, intelligent Light that creates appropriate forms for its expression.

You, for example.

Waking up to this already existing Fact is crushing and humbling and illuminating because it outshines my assumption of separateness, (egoism) and relieves me of the burden of being a searcher, a somebody. Yes, I am a “somebody”, an individuated being, a self, a personality, but it’s not separate from God any more than a whirlpool is separate from the River.

We are the whirlpool and the River, human and divine, intimate with each other, lovers that are simultaneously “separate” and one. We are only apparently separate which is the way Reality incarnates, making endless distinctions and variations of Itself, playful themes and modifications of its own intense Dynamic. To assume that organic distinctions in Nature, such as the leaf on the tree, is evidence that the leaf is separate from the Tree is what creates egoism and suffering and the search for God. However, it is not God who is lost and must be found. It is we who are lost and must step back from the ludicrous and arrogant assumption of our separation from Truth (Reality), which is Love and Unity of all Life. There is only One Life living Itself as all beings and worlds.

All techniques and remedies and solutions to our self created problem, spiritual, religious, psychological, political or otherwise, are doomed to not only fail, but to guarantee our endless enslavement. It hurts to be an ego and going to the doctor or priest only hurts more because he, like us, assumes our problem to be real. Instead of telling us to take our hands off our throats and our fingers out of our eyes, he gives us a prescription for the pain and sets up another appointment. This is like waking up in prison and asking the warden for a better pillow as a solution to our feelings of despair and longing. Break out of the prison! The door isn’t even locked! We think it’s locked. It isn’t.

All the grievous maladies and injustices in the world stem from this spiritual error and nothing will change on planet earth until we wake up from our exclusive identification with a separate self, a false self, and be Who and What we already are: Love embodied, the Word made flesh.

    I enjoyed reading that, Robert. It certainly makes a change from what we are accustomed to reading on this site. It gives us a much-needed respite from the rough and tumble of politics, drawing us gently into the numinous world of the Spirit.

  2. #2 by Xanadu on April 2, 2009 - 7:43 pm

    I see you’ve been influenced by Emersonian ideas and Oriental mysticism. Specifically, by Vedanta.

    Are you of the opinion, by any chance, that life is a dream? Are we all shadows on Plato’s cave wall? Is everything the magic of Maya?

    A response from you would be appreciated.

    A full-length article on an anti-Zionist site, and the word “Jew” not mentioned ONCE! How did you manage it, Robert? :)

    A commenter on Henry Makow’s site savethemales.ca writes:

    “I’m a daily reader of the news at rense.com. I recently logged onto rense.com at my local library in Cody, Wyoming and clicked on one of your [Makow's] articles linked there only to get an odd error message censoring your site. I was appalled. I don’t recall the exact wording on the warning but I do remember two words which were “intolerance and hate”. It said something to the effect that the website I was attempting to view was unavailable due to its content which promoted intolerance and hate. I sat there dumbfounded.

    Is this America or communist China? This was the first and only time I had ever seen any form of censorship while viewing any website at my local library. The Rense site pops right up, but any of your articles linked are censored. I’ve seen other sites that I think are a lot more intolerant than yours so I wonder how and why your site wound up on some “list”. Who is the judge and jury here? The ADL? The JDL? This is an outrage.”

    http://www.henrymakow.com/anti-semitism_means_never_havi.html

    Why do I mention this? Because the same thing is happening in libraries THROUGHOUT AMERICA. And it happened to me TODAY in Britain where I am a student.

    Mark Glenn’s websites are all on the banned list. So is Rense, Ziopedia, Marwen Media, and dozens of other anti-Zionist websites. In fact, almost ALL my bookmarks are banned by these vile Thought Police whom no one elected!

    Imagine my surprise to learn that even THIS site

    http://theoccidentalobserver.net/

    was BANNED AS A HATE SITE!!!

    It is where the highly distinguished scholar, Professor Kevin MacDonald, author of the groundbreaking The Culture of Critique, posts all his articles. Prof. Macdonald is a tenured university professor! And we are not allowed to read his articles in British libraries. Amazing!

    Yes, IT IS OUTRAGEOUS! Who is doing this to us? Who is taking away our basic freedoms?

    Don’t ask! You already know.

    They spin their evil webs all round us and they are slowly killing us . . . in the same way as they are killing the Palestinians!

    Good article, Robert, you have lots of interesting ideas that need further exploring.

    Here’s a video of George Galloway, recently denied entry to Canada, being interviewed by Dr Hesham Tillawi. Thought you might be interested.

    ISRAEL GETTING TOUGH WITH AMERICA : “FIGHT ANOTHER WAR FOR US — OR ELSE!”

    In an interview conducted shortly before he was sworn in today as prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu laid down a challenge for Barack Obama. The American president, he said, MUST stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons — and quickly — or an imperiled Israel may be forced to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities itself.

    “The Obama presidency has two great missions: fixing the economy, and preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu told me. He said the Iranian nuclear challenge represents a “hinge of history” and added that “Western civilization” will have failed if Iran is allowed to develop nuclear weapons.

    History teaches Jews that threats against their collective existence should be taken seriously, and, if possible, preempted, he suggested. In recent years, the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has regularly called for Israel to be “wiped off the map,” :) and the supreme Iranian leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, this month called Israel a “cancerous tumor.” (Gosh, how can he say such a thing?)

    Timely article, Robert Cinq. The older I get, the more I realize that this world is a theatre — a battleground in which an ancient war is being waged: the war between Good and Evil.

    The idea that Good has already won, is, it seems to me, wishful thinking.

    One has only to look around to see that Evil is gaining the upper hand.

  8. #8 by Lasha Darkmoon on April 3, 2009 - 10:33 am

    Evil is now incarnated in the state of Israel. Here you see all the ingredients of evil being tossed into a seething cauldron of hatred: the systematic genocide of a people, the deliberate incineration of women and children, the heartless landgrabbing and demolition of houses, the uprooting of olive trees, the daily humiliation at checkpoints, the settler brutality, the sadistic cruelty of the politicians who are no better than war criminals. The list goes on, and on, and on…

    Here we have the New Sodom where the Beast of Revelations has set up his throne, and where the Whore of Babylon reigns over the kings of the earth, giddy with the wine of her fornications.

    “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter!”
    (Revelation 9:12)

    Israeli FM questioned over fraud

    Israel’s new Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has been questioned by police for at least seven hours over corruption allegations.

    Police said Mr Lieberman was questioned under caution on suspicion of “bribery, money-laundering and breach of trust…”

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7979666.stm

    So what’s new?

  10. #10 by Xanadu on April 3, 2009 - 2:31 pm

    How many children did Israel kill in her recent 22-day rampage in Gaza?

    I will tell you: 410. That’s just over 18 children a day! Isn’t that’s CHILD MURDER?

    Accidental deaths? Collateral damage? Don’t you believe it! This is a deliberate policy.

    In an infamous speech delivered on October 25, 1972, this is what Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir said: “I cannot sleep at night knowing how many Arab babies are being born this same night.”

    All Israelis, it seems, have Golda Meir’s nightmare: the fear of of being demographically outmaneuvered by the Arabs. Help, too many Arab babies!

    So what do they do to solve this problem?

    They cull the babies! Like King Herod of old, they slaughter the little children systematically.

    This is the only country in the world where child murder is official government policy.

    “If you want peace, prepare for war.”
    Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s new Foreign Minister

    http://www.presstv.com/detail.aspx?id=90273&sectionid=351020206

    Thank God we have Avigdor. With a man like this at the helm, Israel need never fear. Avigdor, who has wrongly been called the “Jewish Hitler”, is basicaly a man of peace. Like Ariel Sharon. He knows that the only way to get peace is to make war. Yes, I know that sounds paradoxical, but let’s face it — how else can you achieve peace except by wiping out all your enemies?

    Mercy? Forget it. You don’t show mercy to cockroaches. You just get out the spray can and kill the little critters.

    In our case, we obviously have to kill a lot of Palestinians. It can’t be helped. They’re in the way. If we don’t kill them, they’d kill us. It’s either them or us.

    Arabs in general are a threat. Not only to Israel, but to mankind in general. They really do want to destroy western civilization. Scratch a Muslim and you will find an Al-Qaeda terrorist. There’s no difference between the average Muslim taxi driver in New York and Osama bin Laden. All have murder in their hearts.

    That’s how I feel, anyway.

    And if you don’t like hearing what I have to say, f**k you! I’m sorry if I sound a bit nasty, but I’d like to assure you that I’m really a very nice person.

    No, seriously: Jewish Telegraph Agency reports that Richard Goldstone, a trustee of Hebrew University with close ties to Israel, will head a United Nations inquiry into Israeli war crimes in Gaza. :)

    http://jta.org/news/article/2009/04/03/1004223/goldstone-to-head-unhrc-gaza-inquiry

    Unbelievable.

    How that grab you, Mark? Are you pleased to learn that a major UN investigation into Jewish war crimes in Gaza is to by headed by a Zionist Jew?

    I bet you are.

    I guess irony isn’t dead. If Genghiz Khan were alive today and killing Palestinians like flies, I bet he’d get the Nobel Peace Prize. :)

    Well, Avigdor Lieberman is alive and well — Israel’s new Foreign Minister — and he hopes to solve the solve the Palestinian problem by drowning Palestinians in the Dead Sea!

    So I guess they can give the next Nobel Peace prize to him — the new “Jewish Hitler”, as he has been called.

    A recent quote from Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s new Hitler:

    “We want to relieve ourselves of the burden of Palestinian populations, not the[ir] territories.”

    http://original.antiwar.com/stephen_green/2009/04/03/visa-for-top-netanyahu-aide-in-question/

    What Lieberman is saying hardly needs translation: THE PALESTINIANS ARE A BURDEN, BUT NOT THEIR LANDS.

    He is recommending ethnic cleansing. Drive out the Palestinians and grab their lands. Outrageous.

    Yesterday we heard again how how Mark Glenn’s blog, along with dozens of other good anti-Zionst sites, had been banned in public libraries throughout Britain. The same sites are also banned in public libraries in America over which the Jews have gained control.

    You are expected to get your news from the Jew-controlled mass media exclusively. A daily diet of lies will keep you nicely misinformed. They will fill your mind with distractions, trivia and sexual titillation.

    It now seems that even those non-Jewish American journalists who are graciously permitted to write for the New York Times and other such lie factories are only too aware of their mercenary status. They openly admit to being intellectual prostitutes.

    Read my next post and decide for yourself.

    “WE ARE INTELLECTUAL PROSTITUTES”

    John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, was one of America’s best loved newspapermen. John was asked . . . to give a toast before the New York Press Club, and in so doing made a monumentally important and revealing statement. He is quoted as follows:

    “There is no such thing in America as an independent press. You know it and I know it! There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did , you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.

    If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth: to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it. We are jumping jacks; they pull he string and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men.

    WE ARE INTELLECTUAL PROSTITUTES!”

    Jonathan Tobin, Editor of a Jewish weekly, summed it up when he said in the Jewish Chronicle (AUGUST 25, 1995, p. 19): “The freedom of the press belongs to those who own the presses.”

    Meaning: the Jews.

    The Jews decide through magazines and newspapers, TV and Hollywood, what goes into your mind. Beware of the lies and the poison that is being fed to you.

    F***ING ANTISEMITES!!! F***ING NAZI C*NTS!!!

    My blood is boiling. I am in a froth of rage. I’ve just seen this CARTOON done by a VICIOUS antisemite and I want to KILL EVERY GOY IN SIGHT.

    It’s by a guy called Pat Oliphant.

    The Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Anti Defamation League (ADL) have just denounced this bastard for his political cartoon on Gaza, labeling it as ANTISEMITIC! They say cartoon’s fanged Star of David is NAZI IMAGERY. Damn right it is!

    This disgusting cartoon, published in newspapers across the country on March 25, 2009, shows a headless, goose-stepping Nazi wheeling the Star of David about like a mad dog, fangs horribly bared, and it’s about to DEVOUR this fleeing Palestinian woman holding a baby labeled “Gaza.”

    Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, says the cartoon is meant to denigrate and demonize Israel. That’s exactly what it does. This f***ing cartoonist deserves to have his b**ls cut off! I’d do it MYSELF if I had a f***ing knife. Sh*t-faced c*nt!

    Mark Glenn, this is partly your fault. Your evil writings have probably influenced this antisemitic c*nt. You should be shot. Just take a look at this cartoon, you heartless Son of Satan, and tell me it doesn’t want to make you throw up:

  22. #22 by Arctic Fox on April 7, 2009 - 5:34 pm

    On second thoughts, no. Mossad would have to be really desperate to employ such dumb clucks.

  23. #23 by Vindix on April 10, 2009 - 2:56 pm

    An excellent article. I have a very few minor differences with one or two of the smaller points contained within, relating to metaphysics, but otherwise , great.
    It sometime takes work to discover what you’re speaking of, its worth it.
    Thanks
