A Peace Deal That Leads to Peace

A peace agreement between Israel and the UAE has been announced, supported  by Donald Trump and Jared Kushner. There has been resistance to the plan by the Palestinians, who feel betrayed, and the Iranians, who very likely see a House of Cards being build against them, and from others, such as Saudi Arabia.  Jared Kushner commented yesterday when asked about silence from Saudi Arabia on the Israeli-UAE agreement, "You can't turn a battleship around over night."  

Saudi Arabia is a battleship? What does it take to "turn the Middle East ship around?"

The Middle East brings together diverse cultures and religions. It has been a crossroads of civilization since our distant ancestors left Africa. Most of the time it is a land where people tolerate each other, other times it is a place where the power games create chaos for a long time. One of our projects is the Catholic Church in America project, which works to undo the damage done by the Christians during the Crusades, when they went into the region and attempted to take it through military might.  

In our Faith of the Pure Ray project, we place the world's seven major religions into a pie-shaped circle based on the planning process. Each of the religions teaches the principles of one of the stages of the planning process, but each also plays a favorite power game. Christianity teaches the principles of creativity, but plays the power game of Pride, which leads to wars.  Christianity and Islam oppose each other on the circle. Islam teaches the principles of Equality, but its favorite power game is Anger, which leads to terrorism. When Muslims stand in protest that they are not being treated fairly and equally, if the Christians don't listen, and instead put them down, the proverbial pendulum starts to swing. Judaism teaches the principles of Productivity, but plays the game of genocide--based on judgment--because many Jews believe they have been victimized by the Arabs, and it pulls the pendulum into the depression, and causes the pendulum to revolve, bringing in the other religions. The Fourth Element counters the rotation and brings the pendulum back to the midpoint. The Fourth Element is Buddhism, which focuses on the principles of prosperity. The Faith of the Pure Ray project enables anyone to start the process to create a solid financial foundation. 

Ironically, the conflict in the Middle East is based on lack of prosperity. 

The Trump family are real estate developers who have invested in properties all over the world. Israel has disputed lands, and the UAE are wealthy Muslims who would see investing in Israel to create a sense of prosperity and to end the regional disputes a wise investment, but the principles of prosperity taught by Gautama Buddha are not the same as the principles taught by Donald Trump and Jared Kushner. Opposing Buddhism on the planning circle is Confucianism, which teaches the principles of functioning from your capacity. China is focused on the principle of capacity, but is not a shining example of everyone functioning from his or her own capacity because of the power game of Greed.  The sense of creating prosperity in the Middle East region to create a lasting peace comes from enabling the people to prosper based on their own capacity, not being offered jobs working at Trump hotels. The first principle of a global renaissance is that everyone on the planet must function based on his or her own capacity, not working at jobs that are second best.

One of our organization's goals is that everyone is able to have satisfying and fulfilling jobs, meaning to apply one's talents and gifts to create a cash flow. The same applies to nations based on natural resources, and the benefits go to the people. 

In a recent post, I focused on how world peace requires a paradigm shift in one's thinking. We are all living in a world that is based on illusion rather than truth, facing 180 degrees from where we think we are, so peace is elusive. You cannot bring peace by waging war, yet nations spend billions on national defense. This week's agreement between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and  Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak moves US troops from Germany to Poland. It is not a peace agreement. It is meant to be a defense agreement, but Donald Trump has attempted to undermine NATO. What are the principles associated with defending your nation? 

Our Light Source invention demonstrates that the seven principles of equality, liberty, freedom, compassion, abundance, capacity and tolerance make a nation unbeatable. It is not military might, because wars and genocides are based on power games, and the games go against Universal Law. They are meant to compensate for lack of power, and so power grabs always lead to a loss of power. 

This time period is known as Armageddon, which means the silly things people do, so the illusion is very strong right now. This is the prophesied time of "wars and rumors of wars." The schism has divided the people, so before peace deals will lead to lasting peace, the schism must be healed. Mankind must turn around.

What will turn the ship around? 

Our organization is introducing eight proposals each year, and several for the first year focus on Middle Eastern nations. Israel is not among the first eight nations, but Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Kuwait are, and so is Cyprus, if that is considered a Middle Eastern nation by the people of Cyprus. All eight nations fell into crisis based on a sense of judgment.  Each proposal functions like sophistry to turn people around, or lessons mankind will learn and then apply in our global society as the plan for world peace becomes a reality. 

The first lesson is where true power comes from. Does it come from a strategic location in the world, a strong military or having vast wealth?  True power comes from assuming responsibility. Contingent on the first lesson is understanding the power games no longer work. The strongest military in the world collapses its power base when it attacks an innocent person, as demonstrated by Rome when it crucified Jesus of Nazareth and by George W. Bush when he crucified Saddam Hussein.
