All institutions combat evil, including the press of course.  Ecologists fight against CO2, the unions fight against the greed of their bosses, medicine fights microbes, the Syrian democrats fight Bachar El Assad, Bachar El Assad fights the Syrians who do not submit to him, the police fight speeding on the roads, etc., etc.  However in reality, Man must understand that nothing poses a greater problem than himself : man, be he rich or poor, big or small, here or there.

The Revelation of Arès does nothing more than show man that he is not a stranger to evil, because evil is not a calamity come from elsewhere; evil is you, man!  Therefore man, the remedy to evil is simply yourself.  This is why penitence is the only possible way towards Good.  It is because you have forgotten this that Good is profoundly sleeping.  “Oh, no,” some cry to me.  “When Monsanto manufactures and commercializes poisons, where is the evil?  Monsanto!  It’s not our fault.”  To which one can reply, “Well, then, why do you, man, work for Monsanto?  The lab technicians who see these poisons in their test tubes and under their microscopes, why don’t they leave, indignant, saying ‘What? Manufacture such poisons? Never! We quit.'”  “It’s because they have to earn their livelihood,” is the reply.  I answer, “But if Mr. Monsanto makes poisons, it’s because he also needs to earn money and be useful to those who use these poisons, who could therefore also be assassins.”  Etc., etc.  It never ends.

Lets summarize!  The Revelation of Arès shows us that each and every one must understand that everyone, whatever their level may be, rich or poor, young or old, is connected to everyone else. This connected-ness can only be born from an action: penitence.  Every person, from the janitor to the director, has their usefulness in the business called humanity which cannot function happily unless there is love for one another.  Otherwise even if CO2 is conquered, Monsanto’s poisons eliminated, Bachar El Assad in prison, pensions recalculated fairly, as long as sin remains, any solution to evil that is not spiritual will never be more than a mask of suffering, like the mask worn on a nose at the Venetian carnival.  If The Revelation of Arès is insistent, it is because sin or suffering or simply evil, persist.  The Revelation of Arès is for all times; it is particularly for our time which is agitated and sometimes tempestuous.  William Shakespeare, who at times was prophetic, has King Lear say, “‘Tis the time’s plague when madmen lead the blind.”  It is against this misery that The Revelation of Arès thunders to awaken Good which is the only remedy to Evil.  Love opens the eyes, contrary to what many think.

 

The Key to Good in the World

In His immense Wisdom, with The Revelation of Arès, the Father gives us a very simple key: penitence, to unlock the door that will permit Good to enter the world.  Perhaps we do not insist enough on this simplicity as realization of His Design.  Mankind expects the complications and obscurities of the legal system—laws are the base of the legal system and there are so many, even jurists are becoming lost.  Man has in his heart, in love, the code which enables him to put away in a closet all legal codes.

We must awaken love, make a hole in the indifference, coldness, laziness, ice…prelude to frozen specters…so that Good, too far removed, may return.  What has man become?  Not only condemned to die—each of us is, only the moment of execution varies—but miserable, hungry for peace and happiness yet incapable of giving himself that peace and happiness.  Everything becomes quite complicated in this world, so much so that this complication agitates and derails the mind, prevents the fulfillment so necessary to happiness.  I was having lunch a short while ago with my grandchildren and I said to myself: they are preparing their baccalaureate exams, soon they will enter institutions of higher education, and the worries of life will begin.  The preparation of peace, the solution to the worries, is in the love they will give, because one only receives love if one gives love.

…people no longer know what justice and happiness is

“…people no longer know what justice and happiness is.  They don’t understand that happiness depends only on themselves.  If they expect a good world, they must begin by being good themselves.  They must understand that happiness depends only on themselves and not on an ideology or laws…  You want happiness?  You are the master of the situation!  Start practicing love, peace making. thinking with intelligence free from prejudice, and you will begin to change the world.  Another world?  It is our job!  It is not the job of politicians, intellectuals.  At the end of the day, we are the only masters of the game…”

Brave Cyclamen

brave cyclamen

Come wind, rain, hail (haven’t seen much sun), this cyclamen has been blooming bravely for several months bringing a spot of cheer in our dreary weather.  Not bad for a spur of the moment purchase on sale at a supermarket.

Before clicking to post here, I was looking at the weather report (red alert for wind, waves and high water) and skimmed some comments people had made.  I was surprised to see some saying it is God punishing us.  I have read that the greater part of the French people are atheist.  I don’t believe that God intervenes in such a direct way as to send storms on the bad guys, but I do believe there are consequences, often random, all the way down the line resulting from our actions.  Another comment said we pay enough tax, we should be able to choose our weather.  People are losing confidence in the system and rightly so as it cannot provide the solution to our problems.  Only inner change, manifesting in our deeds and ways of being, can bring about a better world.

Things may look bad but I have hope, like this bright cyclamen.  I am counting on my fellow human beings to develop their divine nature, the one our Creator breathed into us.  This is the message given in The Revelation of Arès.
