Wow, I didn’t realize it’s been so long since your post. I’m sorry for the delay. I didn’t mind your interpretation – I was quite surprised when you mentioned Huna because it was Huna that I first studied when I was starting to try to figure out how all of the ‘psychic’ stuff works.
I was impressed by Huna because it respected the power of the emotional self. I have found that eastern and western paths seem to be afraid of this part of humanity – or say ‘rise above’ your emotions neither point of view ever resonated with me because no only have I ‘felt’ my way through life but I have felt other people’s stuff all the time too – and I KNOW when they are lying to themselves – but you can’t tell them because they honestly don’t feel what I feel from them. It’s very weird.
Oh, by the way, I have a theory – it sort of relates to the Jungian idea of people being dominant feelers or thinkers – you know what I mean? Anyway that’s not really important – but see I’ve always thought that the academics of the world – the people who ‘run the show’ – are more thinkers not really in touch with their emotions exactly. Whereas the ‘common every day rustic’ (a term I take from the movie EverAFter – did you see that? Quite fascinating in terms of the ideas of ‘truth’ or ‘fairy tale’ and a great interpretation in my opinion) – the rustic, they weren’t educated out of being in touch with that emotional part of them. So they were seen as ‘lesser’.
I think the anti-intellectualism is a sort of backlash to this attitude. That’s not good either since it’s out of balance as well.
Which sort of brings me back to Huna. I finally found a spiritual philosophy in which I recognized my experiences and understanding.
I’m not sure what you mean by Holy Spirit –in terms of it relating to Unihipili because I’m not quite sure of what that means – but I understood that the Unihipili was the part of us that could connect to our higher self most easily.
On the other the higher self had a hard time getting through – the Uhane – the conscious mind.
And right there I think that explains a lot of our problems today – too much ‘in your head’ stuff.
But the problem is – people are, in reaction, to heal, turning to their emotions and thinking that just feeling was all they needed. And Huna knew – that though the Unihipili – emotional self – could more easily connect to the Higher self – it also was easily misled by emotions of others and the spirit world.
I think this matches what all sorts of spiritual paths say – that the spiritual realms can be this huge temptation for people on the road to enlightenment. And here we have the source – the person opens to their emotional self – links with spirit and energy and is then misled – following that ‘magic’ as if it is the higher self/superconscious or connection to God/or God you might as well say.
What you said about emotions making people do things is true. I read that there were something like 7 emotions that motivated people to act. Fear was one and I think hope or love – anyway some positive ones were there. I have been wondering about energy though so I wonder if a message is using fear – and so it puts more fear out there in the world – then how does that help over all?
I know that this video is on a site where the idea of the ‘elite’ is not a scary thing. My comment initially was in considering the idea and expressing it to people who are not on the suspicious observer site.
Every audience needs a different approach.
There’s something you might like to know about the internet too – basically it’s not really helping to create a world where people learn things because the search engines are geared to give back to people what they already have searched on. Remember when you posted your song about the Cowgirls and guns? I didn’t know that this was an actual event. If I had, I never would have commented the way I did. When you were angry about what I said (my assumption since you responded eventually, if I remember correctly in red letters and all caps) I really couldn’t figure out why you were so angry since my perception was that it was just a story.
I was stunned to realize it was an actual event. I thought if it was that big of a story – why hadn’t I heard about it. And the reason is – I don’t search on the things you search on so what the engines feed back to me is different from what you get. I put in cowgirls and guns and the story came up on the second or third page.
Part of that could have been because I live in a different country – but I read that people who are in the same country, same jobs, same political affiliations even can have different results based on what they have previously searched. Since most people don’t look past the first couple of pages of results – that means instead of opening our minds to new things, the internet is reinforcing what we already believe.
You will start to see the world more and more through your own glasses – and that means more and more isolation between groups of individuals. Instead of people finding their similarities and finding things on which to build (and what but that will eventually erode the power of any ‘elite’?) – people find their differences reinforced and that basically means we end up with a modern day version of ‘tribalism.
Not so much of a coincidence that the term ‘my tribe’ is coming back into use.
Anyway, to round up – I just want to say – if this information is important for everyone – and I believe it is – it’s not the people who are already believers or already on the ‘suspicious observer’ site that need to be told – it is, truth be told, the people who have followed the democratic or liberal point of view since they have been told a story in order to promote environmental legislation.
And before it sounds like I’m saying ‘dumb liberals’ I would like to add that every single party looking for power does this – free trade is another case in point and I know you probably promote that. So if you want to talk about why that serves the elite -
I’d be happy to go there
- remembering of course, the Huna wisdom that our emotions can be misled and get carried away – by spirits and just in general.
