Terrorism: a Spiritual Perspective

This is a very deep and complex question that came from a fellow seeker:

“How is a peaceful spirit supposed to view groups like ISIS that brutalize people?
Looking at the truth, I know that the people who do these things are afraid, deep in ego, fear and illusion.
My eyes in this 3D world show me something different. Something violent. If people like that were threatening me or people I love, I don’t know how I could be a pacifist under those circumstances.
It’s so hard for me to know how to view things like this…..how to be peaceful in a world that is often dangerous…? I think a lot of people struggle with this…
Your perspective would be greatly appreciated…. ~  Manny”

When we are searching for the answer, it’s important that we look at the question from each level of consciousness.  Ego, Heart, Soul and Unity.  Each level will see the situation from a a higher and more evolved perspective.

 Level of The EGO –

Seen from the level of 3rd density physical consciousness, the body/mind/emotional system wants to protect itself.  The body perceives threat and has feelings of outrage and fear.  The body naturally wants to defend itself, protect its loved ones, and even move to protect its fellow human brothers and sisters.  If a group like this were threatening you or people you love, you’d probably have an innate impulse to fight violence with strong violence.  You’d probably have an impulse to stop the threat by any means… even by killing it.  This is what the ego does – it wants to eradicate anything that it doesn’t like.

Level of the HEART –

Seen from the level of 4th density heart consciousness, (which is the level Earth is evolving toward) the heart senses that the people who belong to the group ISIS are behaving this way because they are afraid, and deeply lost in ego, fear, pain and illusion.  Here is where we begin to see, and have compassion for, their humanity.  We don’t lose our 3rd density consciousness when we move up into 4th, rather 4th density awareness envelopes all the levels below it and shifts us into a new perspective from which to view the situation.  The heart naturally feels compassion, yet it balances it with the body’s perception of threat.  Here, we’re not so quick to pull out our guns and bombs.  We begin to consider a more diplomatic solution and a less-violent strategy if possible.  We see these people as human brothers, not as “the enemy” or dissociated “other”.  It is important to note that just because heart consciousness is softer and more inclusive, doesn’t mean that it won’t defend itself physically if all other attempts fail.  But it will defend itself more cleanly, and only for the sole purpose of keeping itself from harm.  The heart has no desire to do harm in return.

 Level of the SOUL –

Seen from the level of 5th density wisdom consciousness, the soul sees the situation with ISIS as a mutually agreed circumstance which is here to teach everyone on the planet what we are ready to be finished with (barbarianism) and how to handle it in a new way.  5th density envelops the awareness of all the levels below it, which allows us to see from a new and higher perspective.  From this place I become aware that the people involved with ISIS are playing the role of a part of myself – there is something in me that is still unresolved which is very much like the energy ISIS carries.  The work here isn’t to obliterate ISIS, it is to go inside and dissolve all the places in me that are scared, mired in fight or flight, and which would turn to killing if pushed into a corner.  Is there a place in me like that where I’d tear someone’s eyes out if they got too close to it?  That’s the place I have to heal.  When we each do this “mirror work” to heal ourselves, groups like ISIS won’t show up in our consensus reality anymore.  The soul sees that all dramas are consensual and purposeful for everyone.

 Level of the UNITY –

Seen from the level of 6th density unity consciousness, there is only acceptance and love for the people of ISIS.  Most humans rarely get a taste of this level, but some have what is called a “peak experience” where they are overcome by the awareness of this level for a short time.  If you’ve ever had a peak experience like this, you KNOW when you’re in this unity, that all is well, that ISIS is doing exactly what it’s supposed to do, and that humanity will figure this out.  There is no fear.  There is no defense.  There is just pure being, love, acceptance and understanding.

As evolving humans, it is our task to love every part of ourselves.  We can’t skip over any level, and we can’t skip over any part of healing.  And we can’t skip over any player in the drama of the world.  All of the parts need to be integrated in order to heal 3D.  There is one reason why we are here immersed in this third density physical world – and that is to dissolve the charge (fear) around every issue that arises.  We do that by accepting it, loving it and understanding it.  May we each continue walking, striving to always remember the Truth of who we are and what we came here to do.  And what did you come here to do?  You came here to dissolve fear into love.

Said another way – you came here to ascend 3rd density matter
into 4th density heart consciousness. 

That’s a pretty cool job.

    Wow. Thank you for this amazing response. You have amazing insight into this subject matter. My feeling is that many people struggle with these very issues in the 3D world. Your words help bring clarity and comfort in an understandable way. Blessings.

    My question is is ISIS real or another al qaeda – a construct of Western intelligence agencies designed to instil fear in the masses with the cooperation of the main stream media?

    • I cannot answer this question – I do not know. What I DO know is that ISIS is scary for people. Anything that’s scary needs healing to dissolve the charge around it. It really doesn’t matter whether something is real or unreal, if its causing fear, it’s our task to clean it up in ourselves. Much love for you, Paige
