WHAT CAUSES SPIRITUAL TURMOIL?
We, Ourselves of the Collective, have found this question asked by a Human Being whom We Love, Ser Ichabod. This is one of the most enduring and ever-changing questions that a metaphysician can ever face. The Meditators are asked this question or some version of it millions of times a day by the pleading Souls from more than 110 races of Creation. Never is the answer de rigueur or simplified for it cannot be. To do so with such and entreaty would be to reduce the Human being’s brain to an organic computer when in reality it is the seat of the Soul, the personality and the House of Clouded Reason.
Spiritual turmoil is caused by a Sentient Being becoming so used to not caring or thinking that they become uncaring and unthinking in all realms that do not apply to their advancement within the society of their species. Such a loss of spiritual footing has caused nuclear warfare no loss than eight times on five planets in the Milky Way galaxy– once on Terra itself. There is no harmony in harming others. Determining when it is better to be at Peace or to be at war is decided simply by saying it is always better to be calm; to be at Peace.
Terrans are a fighting species because of their weak bodies and strong minds. Species that are strong of body and weaker in the depth of their sentience rarely ever go to war for it is too taxing upon their Souls. H L Mencken often says in speeches at press clubs across the Hellac Empire, “How many wars have dolphins fought? Where are their nukes?” His reason is penetrating and Mencken is powerfully grounded in his understanding of the true nature of metaphysics. The dolphins have no wars because as a Sentient Race their currency is calm and the joy of their short but energetic lives.
Human Beings struggle with this daily because they are herd animals that have broken a covenant with themselves in tha name of individualism. There is nothing at all wrong with the beauty and uniqueness of the One, however, there is a price to be paid for cutting the spiritual bonds that ties Man to Man and Woman to Woman no matter the color of their skin, their desired gender for the pleasures of the flesh and their ideals derived from their religious traditions. That sword that allows you as an individual to choose a tribe based on created ties also cuts into your Souls so deeply that you can kill. Suicide, the cancer of the Soul is a powerful dis-ease indeed and it is both a slow acting acid in the mind and a fast acting radionuclides that shatters everything it touches with unseen waves of energy. No situation that seems to be so great a loss can be solved with self murder. The loss of one’s spiritual tether with life is a state of turmoil that comes from such a hatred of the current state that one cannot realize that a new day is on the horizon and that change is the only other commodity in all the Known Worlds that does not sleep. Of course, Love rests not, nor does it slumber, but it waits in the depths of every Soul who realizes that love is the purpose of Life.
