There are the few, that rose to be heads of "units of people" back in history. These people put themselves forward in the pursuit of power over multiple families, overriding the authority of the heads of those families who, on the whole, were peaceful. Once power over one tribe was established, some of these "leaders" would seek further power over other tribes, an endless pursuit of power, an addiction to control. This behaviour resulted in peaceful peoples migrating away from the troubles and setting up new units. Sure enough over time the psychopathic element of the human condition either rose within the peaceful units or invaded from other tribes. War it seemed was inevitable, it was just a matter of time.
As units became tribes, tribes concurred other tribes and became states and nations and nations became trade partners and eventually continental superstates the same behaviour has propagated except the budgets for war have become bigger and the weapons more deadly.
The majority of each population do not want war, the majority want to get on with raising their families without the threat of violence and bloodshed. But despite governments of democracy, despotism, dictatorship and communism, nothing seems to stop war. There is always an excuse, religion, retaliation, striking first just in case, threatening behaviour, governments suppressing there own people and so on, the list is endless but the route cause is the same. You could call it a mental illness.
The drive that drives a psychopath to be in charge is the same drive as a controlling spouse, the same drive as a murderer, or rapist, the same drive as road rage, violence outside bars, sexual deviancy and any other manifestation you can name that controls, abuses themselves or hurts other people. That drive is a drive that takes over the mind leaving the "person" who represents that mind as a passenger, or a shell hosting the drive that is forcing or coercing them to carry out the act in question.
This drive is a kind of brain washing, whether that be through the high class educational institutions of our "leaders" or the mosques of Islam, or the teachings of Christianity, or the brainwashing by the mainstream media or the drug induced intellectual coma of legal drugs such as tobacco, alcohol, food additives, pharmaceuticals and, more recently, the effects of the internet.
The mind can be fooled, programmed into carrying out acts that would seem insane and cruel, so long as it is devoid of responsibility. Hence the "god told me to do it" or "we had to do it in defence" or "i hit him first in case he hit me" arguments you here so often. The issue is that once the doctrine is in place it is very difficult to remove or reprogram. The issue is the same as a beaten dog whose old master wore a hat, the dog will always hate men in hats.
So from our point of view as awakened spiritual beings, what does all of this mean? Well, in a sense we can see it in the five senses as simple psychological tricks and programming. A shadowy hand of an elite system on each side creating "leaders" who carry out there bidding after an indoctrination of ideology and dogma. We can also see this on a deeper level too. Some people who have been very ill know that at the point at which the battle for survival is on, a battle happens not only on a biochemical level, but a psychological and spiritual one too. The images and sounds that repeat and circle are a mix of psychological trauma and a representation of our experience of the "ether", the energy that surrounds us all. For many they see a bright light, for some they see dark, ghostlike demons. The demonic presence denotes that the sufferer has a specific frequency to their energy being and they should not ever let go, because to let go would mean giving ones self to a darker energy level. These darker levels are where humanity's issues are, they control the mind, creating patterns of behaviour that, to those who are outside of the situation, seem insane. Inside the dark loop of consciousness though, everything seems reasonable and that is the mindset of elite governments, terrorists and fanatics of all types.
Meditation, reflection on past events, thoughts of future peace will help calm the mind but only the use of high energy intense love can heal the sick. The elite on all sides are a lost cause.
