The Price of Ignorance

Image

The recent racist rant of the LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling and the subsequent lifelong ban and 2.5 million dollar fine imposed has once again caused a firestorm about racism in America. It is a sad day in a repeated ad nauseum saga of ignorant folk doing what they do best, they are dumbing down a society who has longed for all humans to be seen as just that human, no matter what color the skin. In a country where our history is at best abhorrent when it comes to the treatment of those of color, most of us find it hard to stomach such ignorance almost 60 years after the civil rights movement. For those of us at a certain age, we remember the 60’s and the horrific treatment of African Americans, and then in 1992 we lived through the nightmare which was Rodney King being beaten mercilessly by the corrupt Los Angeles police. That was followed by reverse racism when white truck driver Reginald Denny was ripped from his 18 wheeler and beaten to unconsciousness during the fall out of the Rodney King trial which rapidly sparked the LA riots. We thought we turned a corner only to have racism rear its ugly head once more and in a colossal way…the O. J. Simpson trial. It did not take a Mensa member to see how obvious it was that this was an open and shut case yet once again ignorance had its way and fed the division in this country.
I secretly think the world rejoiced when Barack Obama was elected as President not necessarily because of policies or campaign promises but because it seemed to prove that America had grown up and was choosing value verses color. It had nothing to do with politics for many people but more it had to do with a historical moment in time which many never thought would arrive. It was the same when Nelson Mandela was freed from prison and elected as the President of South Africa. The world seemed to sigh in relief at the elevation of a man who such injustice had been hurled upon for more than 30 years.
Now we have the Nevada rancher who conservatives where taunting as a hero for battling the government over grazing on government lands. His fall from grace was swift and politicians everywhere abandoned him like the nuclear bomb he was when he spewed out idiotic racial comments like spitting tobacco. This rancher in his 70’s and Donald Sterling the Clippers coach in his 80’s has to make you wonder if these guys are brothers from another mother. But sadly these are the old guard, the good ole’ boys network which is now a thing of the past, or at least we all hope it is. They are falling right and left because society is finally, painfully struggling to either evolve or go backwards. With reality shows blasting the consciousness of anyone surfing to find an intelligent show and the elevation of the lowest forms of ignorance running rampant it is high time we get something right!
But we have to face the truth or the reality of racism. As in the two cases mentioned above, you cannot change some people because they simply don’t know they have done anything wrong. Both Bundy and Sterling are completely and tragically oblivious to what is acceptable and what is now socially unacceptable. They are incurable not because they are not intelligent people but simply because they do not have the soul capacity to understand the fundamental fact that all human beings no matter what race, creed or gender are equal.

A Forest Interlude

Ariaa Jaeger

I made my annual pilgrimage to Salzburg, Austria in September to attend the premiere of a dear friends new movie and to promote my new book “Ariaaisms~ Spiritual Food for the Soul” which made its debut on Amazon.com in early September. I have traveled to Austria every year for more than 20 years now ever since my near death experience in the Alps which altered my entire life path.

Walking on cobblestone streets where Mozart walked each day as the smell of baking bread hovers in the air while ancient cathedral bells clang still telling time in the old fashioned way, are a few of the many reasons I am always drawn back to the same vacation year after year.

This trip provided me several new and wonderful events, one of which I would love to share with the world as it moved my heart and soul into high places…

Who Are You

Historically there are so many lessons woven into the Easter story. Sadly more than 2000 years later, society has not improved much. We are bombarded daily with the ignorance of the hateful, the hardness of the indifferent and the drama of fame whores. Reality shows are filled with women beating each other up and becoming famous by feeding their victim mentalities and men are showing us how ignorant and cruel they can be with every slaughter of dolphins, whales, harp seals, elephants and rhinos not to mention all of the other things they kill including the human spirit. I know one very wealthy woman who was on an airplane when a dying man who clearly had only a few hours of life left, boarded the plane to take his seat next to her. He was drooling and had horrific tumors on both arms, his hair thin from treatments. She was more concerned about him drooling on her fur coat than she was about this suffering and dying man. In that moment I was mortified and of course stepped up to help him. Twitter and Facebook has given voice to the fools who think their rude and hateful comments are of value. Bullies, haters and bottom feeders are winning the battle between the light and the darkness and sadly those who are not particularly intelligent fall into their cesspool of evil often joining them by staying silent. Society has become loud, opinionated and arrogant and has forgotten the basic element of compassion and being soft. Softness and deliberateness in the use of your thoughts and words not only adds to the energy of love but it feeds the light and raises the vibration within the world. Kindness, compassion and taking the attitude, “there but for the grace of God go I” is the path of wisdom and sending love to those who are so tormented within that they have lost all self respect and personal dignity is the way of the peaceful and profound. I hope all of you will take the Easter weekend beginning with Good Friday to reflect on what you are adding to the world and how you are viewed by the world in your actions. While caring what others think of you is not the goal, ask yourself if you would want to be your friend? Would you want to hang around someone who is hateful, negative, ignorant or mean? Would you want to align yourself to those who feed the light or those who feed the darkness? Choose wisely and eliminate anything that drags you down and keeps you stuck on stupid or feeds the fire of dis-compassion, not just because it is the right thing to do but because your karma will return to you and probably when you have the greatest need. ~Ariaa Jaeger~ Ariaaisms Spiritual Food for the Soul ~ copyright 2014Image

 

What’s Eating You?

I will never grasp the concept of celebrating disease. People pat each other on the back for “surviving” cancer and taunt it like dangling a live bomb in front of those who never even considered it could become their reality. In my spiritual evolution, I was taught by some of the greatest sages of all time that to look upon anything will actually imprint it to your consciousness. Additionally I learned that “fighting” cancer, a cold, the flu or any other sickness will only cause it to stick around longer. I learned in my own death experience that to end a dis-ease you have to address the emotional cause, the reason the body has manifested it to begin with. Most of the time FEAR and HARBORING are the culprits to cancer. Cancer is an eating away of the self. Louise Hay, author of “You Can Heal Your Life” has healed herself of cancer not once but several times by addressing and healing her emotions. Other notable minds like Dr. Masuro Emoto, author of “Hidden Messages In Water” have proven the concept that your inner and outer dialogue contribute to altering your bio-chemistry which in turns lowers your vibration or electromagnetic field thus allowing disease to creep in. Spiritual teachers have known for ages that the human body is programmable by thoughts, language and words. Scientists have recently proved that you can reprogram your DNA with positive words and frequencies. http://www.zengardner.com/scientist-prove-dna-can-be-reprogrammed-by-words-and-frequencies/
Yet more than 70% of the world’s population, most of them intelligent and educated, still cater to the notion that they are victims to their diseases AND they relish in posting pictures in social media of their treatments, their scars, their sores and all the other sorted details of their excruciating journey into learning and their souls growth. WHY? Why would they attract and create disease? Often the very attention they are now getting is precisely what they needed to begin with. Many times it is simply fear that they have allowed to eat away at them and sometimes it is just to prove to themselves that they are far more resilient than they knew before their diagnoses. Recently someone on Facebook posted about their sickness “journey” and one person actually commented, “Thank you for taking us to Chemo with you!” I often wonder why those who have been given a grave prognosis even bother to indulge in radiation and chemotherapy which ravages and rapes the body and robs the patient of quality of life and buries the family in horrific debt when all they get from it is a few more months of incapacitation they call life. In what are severely obvious terminal cases why would you waste one day in a hospital when you could be using that time to create videos for every important day your children or family will have in years to come. Why not travel while you still can and see the world, make great memories with those you love and LIVE instead of filling your body with nuclear waste and being sickened more so from it.
Now I am not trying to offend anyone or sound like a hard ass but folks you have the power to overcome ANYTHING the body can manifest and if you are really attuned to your soul, you can address what is emotionally ailing you long before it turns into an actual disease. I do have great compassion for those who would choose such a difficult path and I praise God that I overcame my own trial when I clinically died in Austria in 1993 only to return to the living with an entire new way of thinking. You can choose to stay stuck in a limited, victim mentality or you can choose to EVOLVE. Why would you want to wallow in sickness and celebrate disease unless of course it is serving you.

Floodgates of Flow

 

It is normal to want to be loved and admired, but as you grow spiritually, you grow more comfortable in your own skin. The goal for all spiritual beings is to dissolve the ego’s need to be fulfilled. Ego is the one absolute saboteur to all things spiritual. They are in direct conflict with one another. Those who are spiritually evolved do not need validation because once you are attuned to your inner divine nature, you are keenly aware of your own worth. Additionally, with that much power at your disposal, you become acutely aware that you must remain humble and even-keeled. Too much emotion expressed on either side of the spectrum, can trigger a dramatic avalanche. Over the years I have fried computers, shorted out telephones and murdered televisions, all from expressing extreme emotions. Whether it is happiness or frustration, energy is just that, energy. It moves like a living creature and extends from the awakened spiritual being, as a living, life force. The old adage, “To much whom is given, much is expected,” takes on a profound meaning. When you recognize the enormous responsibility which comes with living a life empowered, you open the floodgates of mastery.
