Greetings Radical Seekers!
My wife, Jane, and I recently spent some time in Alabama. We were deeply saddened and surprised by the depth of inequality we witnessed.
At the same time we were deeply moved by the very important work of Mr. Bryan Stevenson - curator of The Legacy Museum in Montgomery Alabama. Mr. Stevenson is shedding light and spreading awareness as to the mistreatment inflicted upon black Americans in our current judicial system. Mr. Bryan Stevenson deserves the Noble Peace Prize for establishing a Peace congress to end racism through an honest and "RADICAL spiritual transformation process" called - the Legacy Museum.
Being born a white Christian man. I can only say that the Holy Spirit used that experience to show me racism in an entirely new light, I was wrong in my previous views concerning racism, but I was not a bad man for being wrong about racism. Racism is brought about by the fear of others.
I have termed the "New Jerusalem" as Montgomery Alabama to my Christian friends precisely because of the profound affect The Legacy Museum had on my wife Jane and I.
The Holy Spirit will use anything we allow Him to use if we will just step back and let Him lead our way.
It truly is very important that this information be distributed to both the black and white communities so that racism and silent racial segregation can be eliminated in only one generation, THIS ONE! and not a thousand years from now.
Nonviolence is the only way for any lasting permanent change to occur in regards to racism and concealed segregation. First the mind must be purified by any preconceptions of what racism is and how it was caused.
Understanding racism requires one to not have to be persecuted by its hate; one only has to LISTEN to the Holy Spirit’s Answer for WHY racism occurs. Comparable to; one does not have to be affected by cancer to see he or she doesn't want it or its effects.
Racism occurs because of the erroneous belief in differences.
Only man sees differences, God, our Loving Heavenly Father (Source Energy), sees them not. This understanding comes as a result of accepting the Atonement. The Atonement healed sin, entirely AND eternally. Sin is mis-thinking to be corrected not punished. This knowledge is the result of the RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ to the Kingdom of God.
Mind purification by the Holy Spirit requires that we LISTEN to the Holy Spirit and then do what is ADVOCATED for you to do. In the case of racism in America, the white man and woman must have their preconceived notions about slavery healed and corrected spiritually. This is done by the Holy Spirit within the Kingdom of God, the mind.
The "new Jerusalem" or pilgrimage destination for the American Christian who wants to learn about unconditional love, can be called Montgomery Alabama, the "starting place" for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Downtown Montgomery is more peaceful and quieter than any other major city or state capitol. It is possible only because of the healing that is being manifested through the Legacy Center and its Museums.
The ultimate destination of the pilgrimage being EJI.org ; for the purpose of a spiritual transformation and lightning fast release of all racial and religious bigotry. This exposure to the effects of racism can only be described as a dramatic revision of your Christian walk. When this occurs by your WILLINGNESS to love Thy neighbor as yourself, the Holy Spirit of the RESURRECTED Jesus Christ makes His Presence known within the Kingdom of God - the mind.
Both blacks and whites have been so damaged by the current racist system that neither group has been able to appreciate fully the insanity of the current judicial system. Young Americans must now lead the way. They must now take charge of their own destiny and not leave it in the hands of aging sons of men and women who lack faith in unconditional love.
The new generation has unconditional love and sees the insanity of harming its neighbors "at home and abroad." What has the result of a 30-year middle eastern war been?
This forces us to ask the question why both black and white (conservative or liberal) in the "Church" resist the message of Jesus Christ to love thy neighbor as yourself?
Where are the Christians? We must love our enemies to experience Heaven.
As injustice becomes legislated through unjustified wars, and through unthinkable and absurd prison sentences due to the fear of others, a NONVIOLENT RESISTANCE becomes a duty. How it is applied comes through prayer and meditation.
There can be no system of justice
where there is no justice in the system.
Because someone lies it does not make them a lair. Because someone steals it does not make them a thief, and Because someone kills it does not make them a murderer. At home or overseas.
Change begins WITHIN. INSIDE THE PEWS and not inside the polls. The true CHURCH is where true change happens. Dr. King and the Mahatma both recognized the futility of violence to help at all in the silent oppression we call racism.
Racism ends when we realize that Jesus Christ resurrected and death is a spiritual sham based on false beliefs about our Savior’s whereabouts. Racism produces the wars of the world. Christians going to war is an incongruity on a scale so vast, it puts the "experience" of Jesus out of reach due to a faulty understanding of what Jesus Christ taught. He taught HIS DISCIPLES to act NONVIOLENTLY at all cost, ALONG WITH teaching HIS METHOD of Salvation from death to the unbelievers. This afforded/and still AFFORDS, HIS DISCIPLES the awareness of Eternal Life without the interruption of death.
Of course this is Insane to a world made mad by Christians killing one another in an attempt to gain large stacks of green paper strips and metal discs that this world deems valuable.
There is another experience that is available HERE AND NOW. Understand this: The "future" has ALWAYS BEEN 100% imaged. Thus, the "past" ALWAYS will be an hallucination brought about by improper thinking.
What can this mean except that we are in an ever-slippery condition that Jesus Christ calls "hell." Never knowing, "what's gonna happen next?" Jesus Christ's Holy Spirit KNOWS what the future has in store. Knowing time as FOREVER NOW.
To completely understand time and space requires the disciple to unconditionally love everyone.
Forgiveness 70X7 is the religion/method. The Holy Spirit WITHIN is now the means/the Way.
LISTEN, then be still to know what to do. Feel the fear and do it anyway!
KNOW THAT EVERYTHING anyone is looking for IS WITHIN.
"The Kingdom of God is within you!"
~Jesus Christ teaching HIS DISCIPLES 2000 years ago
Once this FACT is even dimly grasped by the DISCIPLE, the way is open to change the things we can no longer accept.
With love and gratitude,
David and Jane
