Though it is true that on a physical level that we didn’t choose our parents but in personal development we often say to clients who have issues with a parent that they did choose their parents on a spiritual level. And we choose them, and all our challenges, as our parents gave us the opportunity and environment to learn from in order for us to ‘grow’.
Therefore, you can see some sense in this but what about the five or six million who died in camps during WWII? Did they have a pre birth agreement with Hitler and cohorts to suffer so?
The answer is yes, plus the WWI as well. They are both linked to each other. Let me explain.
Those that died in the concentration camps, you could say that they offered themselves or better still, they co-operated to demonstrate what brotherliness could be like, to bring out compassion of other people. Just like other episodes in history like the slave trade for example.
Hitler and the Germans were only compassionate to themselves i.e. blondes and blue eyes, but if you’re compassionate to yourself then you must be also be compassionate to your neighbour as we are ONE.
The Germans acted out this way in order ‘to carry the shadow of Europe’ and possibly the world. It all came out. I’m sorry to say but it reflected and showed itself how cruel and aggressive we all are underneath as we are all as ONE!
The 1st and the 2nd World Wars highlighted this misunderstanding of the concept that we are ONE. The focus was on half are good and half were bad.
Carl Jung understood and wrote about this back in 1933 before the war started and Germany’s part in both wars in getting this message across. Unfortunately, history about why the Germans started a second war again is only focused on the surface economic reasons.
The wars have shown us an opportunity, a new way of looking at things, in a brotherly interactive way.
How well do you think we have learned this? When we look at the various wars still going on today, some you can’t even split genetically, they are brother killing brother.
And what are our or your pains that we have chosen, taking us?
Walk in Peace;
Walk in Beauty.
