Our Spiritual Declaration: Buddha and Buddhism

Chapter 22: Buddha and Buddhism


1. Buddha was born Siddhartha Gautama around 563 BC. "Buddha" is a title later given to him meaning "The Awakened One" or "The Enlightened One".

2. Buddha was born to a wealthy family in the town Lumbini, located in the kingdom of Kapilavastu (modern-day Nepal). Many believed Buddha would mature into a great king or religious leader. Being a king himself, Buddha's father wanted his son to inherit the throne, and Buddha was shielded from religion to lead a rich, worldly life.

3. At age twenty-nine Buddha realized wealth wasn't the path to the enlightenment he sought, and the young prince journeyed outside his castle. The king unsuccessfully attempted to remove the suffering citizens from his son's view; however Buddha meet an old man, a diseased man, a corpse, and an ascetic (one who denies himself worldly things).

4. Well-educated, wealthy, groomed for royalty, and being a prince, Buddha experienced four of the six steps on the Path of Humanity (knowledge, wealth, self-improvement, authority). Buddha left his luxurious life to walk the last steps, religion and society, in what Buddhists celebrate as the "Great Renunciation".

5. Buddha fled his palace to lead an ascetic life. He was taught meditation by a hermit, rejected all material possessions, fasted, and practiced self-torture.

6. Eventually, Buddha rejected extremes for a "middle way". He sat beneath a Bodhi tree (pipal tree) and swore not to leave it until achieving enlightenment. After forty-nine days of meditation, Buddha discovered his Divine Light.

The Four Noble Truths
7. The Four Noble Truths are concepts Buddha found permeate all life.

8. The first truth is everyone suffers. All in life will suffer mentally and physically. We must accept this truth in order to solve it.

9. The second truth is the cause of suffering is craving and ignorance. Necessities of life we must crave to survive, but beyond this we desire things which bring us suffering. Ignorance prevents us from knowing what is good and bad - what will cause suffering. Believing is an end also causes suffering.

10. The third truth is to end suffering we must eliminate craving and ignorance. The state of being where suffering ends is "Nirvana". Achieving Nirvana is Buddhism's goal.

11. The fourth truth is the path to end suffering, the Noble Eightfold Path. Going the "Middle Way", avoiding extremes, is part of this truth.

The Noble Eightfold Path
12. The first step of the Eightfold Path is the "right view". To view the world correctly, bear in mind the Golden Rule: "Do to others as you would have them do to you." Realize free will is a natural right, but avoid situations where free will interferes with another's ability to exercise that right. Remember the best action equally benefits yourself and others.

13. The second step is "right thought". Views give birth to thoughts; therefore wrong views lead to wrong thoughts. Knowledge and wisdom are needed for proper thoughts.

14. The third step is "right speech". Practicing right speech means to avoid lying, slander, harsh words, and useless speech.

15. Lying is communicating what we believe is untrue. Attempts to maneuver around the truth are thwarted by asking one to "tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth", as in an American court. This statement reveals the spirit of truth. "Tell the truth" is self-explanatory. "The whole truth" means to not withhold any relevant, truthful information. Withholding information isn't technically lying, but it violates the spirit of truth. "Nothing but the truth" restrains one from mixing false information with the truth.

16. Slander is injuring another's reputation by untrue, spoken words. This creates division in all things. "Where no wood is, there the fire goes out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceases." -Proverbs 26:20 We're usually angry with a person's actions - not the person. Slander rarely resolves a wrong committed.

17. Harsh words are used to create sin: % talk), wrath (fighting words), pride (self-praise), gluttony (excessive words), sloth (procrastination), covetousness (talking about things we desire), and envy (words spoken in jealousy). These words keep us suspended in suffering.

18. Useless speech or "small talk" is part of society and can't be avoided. However, excessive useless speech can be avoiding by remembering, "Ignorant people talk about other people. Average people talk about places, times, and events. Wise people talk about ideas."

19. The fourth step is "right conduct", which comes naturally if our actions mirror proper views, thoughts, and speech.

20. The fifth step is "right livelihood", a job beneficial to society. Trading , alcohol, animals for slaughter, arms, slaves, and poisons is forbidden in Buddhism.

21. The sixth step is "right effort". This means preventing, suppressing, and rejecting detrimental thoughts while encouraging and maintaining productive thoughts.

22. The seventh step is "right mindfulness". We must become aware of our thoughts and actions, separate ourselves from them, and analyze how others would view them.

23. The eighth step is "right concentration" - complete focus on one thing at a time.

Rebirth
24. Karma is a major component of Buddhism. Karma is the cycle of actions and the end results. Buddha explains if a bad action fails to produce suffering, the unwise consider the action good, but if it produces suffering the action is seen as evil. Good actions, resulting in no happiness, the unwise see as evil, and only when happiness is produced will the act be seen as a kind deed. Using the imagination to see long-term effects is essential.

25. Three doors unwholesome actions enter through are the body, voice, and mind.

26. Unwholesome actions of the body are , stealing, and sexual misconduct.

27. Unwholesome actions of the voice are lying, harsh speech, slander, and gossip.

28. Unwholesome actions of the mind are greed, anger, and delusion.

29. The heavier our karma (wrongs committed in life) the deeper our souls drop in the spiritual realm, and this determines how we'll be reborn. For example, thieves in this life may be reborn as hungry ghosts.

30. Determining the weight of our karma: repetition and persistence of bad deeds, willful intention, absence of regret, quality and indebtedness. Repetition applies to how often the deed was committed and persistence to how zealous we were in committing the deed. Willful intention takes into account if the action was premeditated, without premeditation, or al. Absence of regret reveals the fortitude of our conscious after performing the act. Quality and indebtedness applies to the victim of the act: mother, teacher, minister, animal, yourself, person killed in self-defense. Karma affects us in this life and the next.

31. Neutral karma occurs when elements of good and bad are missing, for example, you accidentally step on an ant.

32. After rebirth we find ourselves in one of many places. In eight hot hells and eight cold hells, the worst karma is tortured and exhausted until its end. Eternal damnation doesn't exist in Buddhism.

33. Higher than hell is the realm of hungry ghosts who suffer hunger, thirst, heat, and cold. So sensitive are the ghosts, the moon scorches in the summer, and the sun brings no comfort in winter. Attachment and obsession with material objects causes souls to be reborn as hungry ghosts.

34. Above hungry ghosts is the realm of animals, which lead miserable lives compared to humans. Causing this rebirth is preoccupation with animalistic desires (sloth, wrath, . . .)

35. The human realm is next where both happiness and suffering exist, and we can practice the Dharma (rules of religion). It's extremely rare to be reborn a human therefore necessary not to squander life.

36. Higher than humans is the realm of demigods or angels who have more intelligence and pleasure in life. Generosity causes us to be reborn as demigods; however a life of jealousy and envy results in being reborn a demigod who fights in vain against gods.

37. The highest realm is gods who have the most intelligence and pleasure in life. After a time the gods are reborn and sink to a lower realm due to pride.

38. The human realm is the only place the cycle of rebirth can be broken by practicing the Dharma, where free will can be exercised, and where we have knowledge of good and evil.

39. Humans have afflictions of ignorance, craving, and clinging - leading to volition and becoming which leads to suffering of consciousness, form, the senses, contact, birth, old age, and . Actions of past lives lead to habits which come natural to us in this life.

40. In going the Middle Way, Buddha teaches us to avoid excessive sin, resulting in rebirth in a lower realm. Don't strive for rebirth in a higher realm; because the loss of that realm causes the greatest suffering. Performing good deeds simply to gain entrance into Heaven isn't the correct path.

Three Characteristics
41. The first characteristic of existence is our temporary state. Existence in this life is short, ever-changing, and realizing this we must rush to achieve enlightenment.

42. The second characteristic is suffering.

43. The third characteristic is negating the 'self'. Outside personality, intelligence, body, and spirit, the 'self' does not exist.

Five Aggregates
44. The five aggregates are form, feeling, perception, volition, and consciousness. First we encounter an object - a 'form'. Then we have 'feelings' about the object. Next, we have a 'perception' through feelings and act toward the object. Then we categorize the object, an act called 'volition'. Finally, we whirl around emotions and thoughts about the object, until this whirling feels real and solid - which is called 'consciousness'.

Enlightened Ones
45. Of those who found their inner Divine Light, arise four categories: Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Pratyekabuddhas, and Arhats.

46. Perfectly enlightened ones are called Buddhas. Some believe Buddhas are projections, sent from God to teach us, like Siddhartha Gautama. In Islam Jesus wasn't physically crucified; rather God made it appear so, and three days later Jesus returned to conclude his teachings. Humans can't dictate the course of a Buddha's teachings. "That they said (in boast), 'We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah' - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not - nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise." -Koran 4:157-158 Churches overly focus on Jesus' resurrection, neglecting his teachings. "An evil and erroneous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 'For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.'" Matthew 12:38:-40 Jesus warns against those who seek merely a physical miracle. Many churches proclaim the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus is central to faith, and by diminishing these events brings injury to the wisdom of Jesus - claiming so is a lack of faith! Remember the beast of Revelation, "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to ; and his ly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."-Rev 13:3 How many will go astray? Perfect Buddhas (teachers) are projections sent from God to enlighten.

47. Bodhisattvas enlighten themselves yet forgo ending reincarnation to enlighten others.

48. Arhats are enlightened, never to be reborn.

49. Pratyekabuddhas become hermits of society to achieve enlightenment.

50. "Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." -Buddha

51. To begin meditating put a cushion on the floor, sit on the edge of it, place your left ankle on the right thigh and right ankle on the left thigh, straighten your back, hands on your lap with the left hand on bottom, concentrate on the tip of your nose, and focus on your breath going in and out.

Why don't you keep letting muslims rape your sisters, Queer bait. Take the knowledge for what it is. No one is forcing your here.

This OP left the building long ago. Which means the thread is dead. And the OP most certainly was fake. I mean, who of the elite controlling this world would ever make threads? For what reason? If in control, why bother intervene?

As for the subject of the thread. Way back since he/she responded. So, move along, this subject is dead.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Because elites like to make money. Given the choice b/t wholesome Brady Bunch & Little House on the Prairie or something filled w/ sex & violence, the unwholesome entertainment makes more money. That's human's animal nature. Sex, drugs, that side of life is a control lever for society. They are methods to keep ppl distracted. This doesn't mean it's a correct way to live, but they're simply control mechanisms.

Then why are "elites" passively forcing everyone to kill their lives in the beginning by thinking about sex all the time when you advocate the side of this not being a right way to live your life? How does it help?

Whenever there will be the point when people will learn something new you will do your usual thing of whiping out the intelligence of the country and revriting the history, which will persuade them that they all came from monkeys again and they will degrade even further.

I've been reading this thread for over two years. It has really changed my outlook on many different things and opened my mind quite a bit. Especially about God. I always had a hard time with a God that does so many senseless things, with petty human emotions like jealousy and anger. The Yaldaboath, Sabaoth, Pistis/Sophia information really helped me understand. Keep up the good work!

Our Spiritual Declaration: Mahavira and Jainism

Chapter 23: Mahavira and Jainism


1. Mahavira was born in India around 549 BC, and is famous for spreading Jainism. At age 30 Mahavira renounced material possessions and spent twelve years seeking enlightenment. Though not its founder, Mahavira was instrumental in spreading Jainism.

2. The twelve vows of Jainism: peace in thoughts, actions, and words toward any living thing; truthfulness (but silence if the truth will harm another); abstaining from theft; chastity (except with a spouse); non-possession of material items (use what is needed and give the remainder to charity); limiting worldly activity to a single area to prevent sin from spreading; limiting use of consumable (food, drinks) and nonconsumable (land, shelter, clothing) items; avoiding purposeless sin; meditating forty-eight minutes daily; limiting the time for performing worldly activities; live as a monk for a day; and donating to religious students.

3. Three characteristics Jains strive for are right perception or faith, right knowledge, and right conduct.

4. Some Jain monks and nuns shave their heads and wander barefoot. A nomadic lifestyle is stressed to prevent unhealthy attachment to a location. Devout students own few possessions - alms bowl, staff, devotional material. Touching the opposite is sex is taboo. Food monks consume is given to them, as they aren't allowed to cook, grow, or store food. Monks can neither beg for food, eat between sunrise and sundown, nor eat in view of others. Some Jains drink water only for beverage.

5. Strict dietary laws are observed among Jains. "Tamasic" foods are forbidden, including alcohol; tobacco; meat; fermented, overripe, stale, and leftover food. Meat, poultry, fish, and slaughterhouse byproducts are frowned upon. Overeating is considered taboo. "Rajasic" foods are allowed but recommended to be avoided - foods too spicy, hot, sour, dry, bitter, salty, stimulating, depressing, or mood-altering. Soft drinks, coffee, tea, caffeine, chocolate, salt, and eggs are considered rajasic. "Sattvic" foods are acceptable - herbal tea, honey, seed, nut, butter, cheese, milk, fruit, vegetable, bread, and cereal.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Thanks. I'm trying to do the Spiritual Declaration in a general chronological order so alot of biblical things came up first, since the Bible is one of the oldest major religious issues. Old Testament isn't my fav thing to write about; because it's thin in morality applicable to modern times. As the chapters go on the theme will shift from religion, spirituality to philosophy since human history took that shift.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Our Spiritual Declaration: Confucius and Confucianism

Chapter 24: Confucius and Confucianism


1. Confucius was born in northern China around 550 BC and is popular for promoting ethics in Asia. Below are teachings of Confucius followed by commentary.

2. "To govern means to rectify. If you lead the people with correctness, who will dare not to be correct?"

3. Confucius emphasized leading by example. The state of a society, in part, reflects what that society's government holds most important and reflects the effectiveness of that government.

4. "Chi K'ang asked Confucius about government, saying, 'What do you say to killing the unprincipled for the good of the principled?' Confucius replied, 'Sir, in carrying on your government, why should you use killing at all? Let your evinced desires be for what is good, and the people will be good. The relation between superiors and inferiors is like that between the wind and the grass. The grass must bend, when the wind blows across it.'"

5. The tone set by a leader has an effect on those under authority.

6. "Someone said, 'What do you say concerning the principal that injury should be recompensed with kindness?' The Master said, 'With what then will you recompense kindness? Recompense injury with justice, and recompense kindness with kindness.'"

7. Rewarding injury with kindness promotes evil, diminishes the power of kindness, and instills no thought to consequences.

8. "If a man takes no thought about what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand."

9. We must apply imaginative forethought to our actions.

10. "When a man is not in the habit of saying - 'What shall I think of this? What shall I think of this?' I can indeed do nothing with him."

11. All good begins with knowledge, and evil arises from lacking knowledge. Knowing comes from questioning.

12. "The way of the superior man is threefold, but I am not equal to it. Virtuous, he is free from anxieties; wise, he is free from perplexities; bold, he is free from fear."

13. Anxiety, ignorance, and fear are the most widespread distractions from development. Anxiety and fear accomplish nothing but defeat. If a problem is solvable, then there's no need to worry. If a problem is unsolvable, no amount of worry will solve it. Realize the difference between worry and thought. Using anxiety's energy to learn and realize a solution wipes away the three great distractions.

14. "To lead an uninstructed people to war, is to throw them away."

15. Here underscores another example that knowledge conquers all.

16. "Hsien asked what is shameful. The Master said, 'When a good government prevails in a state, to be thinking only of salary; and, when bad government prevails, to be thinking, in the same way, only of salary - this is shameful.'"

17. Viewing wealth as an end rather than a mean leads to corruption. Confucius was adamantly against self-interest and corruption in government, which always trickles down into all parts of society.

18. "Can there be love which does not lead to strictness with its object? Can there be loyalty which does not lead to the instruction of its object?"

19. Love and loyalty brings leniency and freedom to mind, but remember all things have dual natures.

20. "The sage and the man of perfect virtue - how dare I rank myself with them? It may simply be said of me, that I strive to become such without satiety, and teach others without weariness."

21. Confucius was humble and shunned being the object of worship.

22. "Learn as if you could not reach your object, and were always fearing lest you should lose it."

23. Learning never stops with age.

24. "I would not have him to act with me, who will unarmed attack a tiger, or cross a river without a boat, dying without any regret. My associate must be the man who proceeds to action full of solicitude, who is fond of adjusting his plans, and then carries them into execution."

25. Think before acting, but always be flexible in thought.

26. "When fasting, he (Confucius) thought it necessary to have his clothes brightly clean and made of linen cloth."

27. Upkeep during a fast parallels a teaching of Jesus: "Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily, I say unto you, they have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; that thou may appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly." -Matthew 6:16-18 Performing good deeds in secret is the most divine act.

28. "If, because a man's discourse appears solid and sincere, we allow him to be a good man, is he really a superior man? Or is his gravity only in appearance?"

29. Judging others by substance rather than appearance is difficult yet necessary to end suffering. Appearance is the main trait humans toward which humans will show bias.

30. "The man of perfect virtue is cautious and slow in his speech."

31. An effective genius is able to relate an idea to the widest audience.

32. "Tsze-kung asked about government. The Master said, 'The requisites of government are that there be sufficiency of food, sufficiency of military equipment, and the confidence of the people in their ruler.' Tsze-kung said, 'If it cannot be helped, and one of these must be dispensed with, which of the three should be foregone first?' 'The military equipment,' said the Master. Tsze-kung again asked, 'If it cannot be helped, and one of the remaining two must be dispensed with, which of them should be foregone?' Master answered, 'Part with the food. From of old, has been the lot of men; but if the people have no faith in their rulers, there is no standing for the state.'"

33. All things begin and end with faith.

34. "Tsze-kung asked about government. The Master said, 'The art of governing is to keep its affairs before the mind without weariness, and to practice them with undeviating consistency.'"

35. Dalai Lama compared the mind to a mirror for the world's problems. We reflect problems in the mirror to better examine them, yet the problems' weight doesn't carry over to our mirror (mind).

36. "The superior man does not promote a man simply on account of his words, nor does he put aside good words because of the man."

37. Separate art from the artist and words from the speaker. Wise words are often lost due to the speaker's reputation.

38. "Tsze-kung asked, 'Is there were one word which may serve as a rule of practice for all one's life?' The Master said, 'Is not shu (reciprocity) such a word? What you do not want done to yourself, do not to others.'"

39. In this Confucius laid down the Golden Rule, warning against using our free will to hamper another's ability to exercise free will.

40. "Tsze-chang then asked, 'What are meant by the four bad things?' The Master said, 'To put the people to death without having instructed them - that is called cruelty. To require from them, suddenly, the full tale of work, without having given warning - this is called oppression. To issue orders as if without urgency, at first, and, when the time comes, to insist on them with severity - this is called injury. And, generally, in the giving pay or rewards to men, to do it in a stingy way - this is called acting the part of a mere official.'"

41. "To be fond of learning is to be near knowledge. To practice with vigor is to be near magnanimity. To possess the feeling of shame is to be near to energy."

42. "The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home."

43. Family is the only natural institution. All other institutions are human's design and rely upon the strength of the family.

44. "Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance."

45. "Learning without thought is labor lost."

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
If you're wondering what suddenly happened in Egypt - Chinese & Russian elites have interfered w/ Globalist elite plans for the Middle East. Remember I said the Arab Spring was a method for Globalists to install radicalized govs to later attack Israel and start WW3. The Chineses & Russians have started undoing what Globalists did by ousting the radicals in Egypt to install a moderate. Chinese & Russians also prevented plans to install radicalized govs in Syria and Iran. In Syria they used force but w/ Iran a threat was made of a joint Russian/Chinese indirect attack (by supplying nukes and advanced weapons) on any invading forces in Iran, and China threatened economic warfare if Iran was invaded.

Now Globalists will have to make more deals w/ China. I'm not sure what this would be. Previously the concessions came as moving more jobs from America to China. USA has no more jobs w/ which to bargain. China will prob be granted access to natural resources of any invaded land. This was the deal made for Chinese approval of invasion into Afghanistan and Iraq. The major deal China made trillions on was the agreement struck for the fall of Communism in eastern Europe and Soviet Union. China didn't want to see communist rule cut in half across the world but esp didn't want an unstable Soviet Union on their border. The West, esp America, made a deal to move millions of jobs to China in exchange for Chinese to allow Soviet Union's fall. Nobody questioned why China sat back and watched communist nation after nation fall, but that's the reason.
 Quoting: the darkness comes

This makes a lot of sense. I often wondered about it myself. The real deal.
They weren't exactly shaking their fists about the recent Korean crisis either.
The trick is, there's an unwanted side-effect: those fallen-apart "Communist" states are rapidly approaching the level of life in China, instead of the West where they were hoping to arrive. Hungary's wages are only double of China's these days. But we don't have the ideology of Confucianism. There fore it is dangerous. Russia especially. There are angry crowds controlled by mafiosi. They could be like Germany in the thirties: feeling duped.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Because elites like to make money. Given the choice b/t wholesome Brady Bunch & Little House on the Prairie or something filled w/ sex & violence, the unwholesome entertainment makes more money. That's human's animal nature. Sex, drugs, that side of life is a control lever for society. They are methods to keep ppl distracted. This doesn't mean it's a correct way to live, but they're simply control mechanisms.

Then why are "elites" passively forcing everyone to kill their lives in the beginning by thinking about sex all the time when you advocate the side of this not being a right way to live your life? How does it help?

Whenever there will be the point when people will learn something new you will do your usual thing of whiping out the intelligence of the country and revriting the history, which will persuade them that they all came from monkeys again and they will degrade even further.
 Quoting: The Russian

 Quoting: the darkness comes


Ok, so let me draw the image you've created in my head.

Elites are pushing people to do distructive things for control.
You are saying that elites are doing it "for the greater good".
Greater good is impossible to coexist with the control of world government. The control over people defeats your "greater good" purpose. A so called, double standards.

Here's another version: you are trying to hide the knowledge by filling it with 99% of b/s, because if people would know everything elites are doing, you wouldn't survive a day.

Simple attempt to stop the law of time and maintain your satainc mass-elitest pyramid system. The reason for the reduction of world population - it's hard to control everyone and knowledge breaks loose. For instance, did "you" gave North Korea the tutorial on how to make a nuclear bomb?

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
I am just reading through the new material. I am amazed at Christopher's description of sex and loving, it concurs with my experience from a spiritual perspective.

It is a very succinct summary worthy of a "new religion." And it is radically different from what most popular psychology suggests these days, but C. G. Jung would certainly approve of it.

Another thing that is not in the standard books is the wrath of Yaldabaoth on the Jewish people who escaped his tricks when moving out of Egypt.

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
Our Spiritual Declaration: The Art of War

Chapter 25: The Art of War


1. War is the last resort in disagreements. A just nation or person must never strike first. As the sun will rise tomorrow, evil will seek to destroy what is good. Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” is a simple, basic guide for warfare. The following is critical advice from “The Art of War”.

2. “The art of war is governed by five constant factors: moral law, heaven, earth, the commander, method and discipline. Moral law causes people to be in complete accord with their ruler, so they will follow him regardless of their lives, undismayed by any danger. Heaven signifies night and day, cold and heat, times and seasons. Earth comprises distances, great and small, danger and security, open ground and narrow passes, the chances of life and . The commander stands for the virtues of wisdom, sincerity, benevolence, courage, and strictness. Method and discipline is marshalling the army into proper subdivisions, graduations of rank among officers, maintenance of roads so supplies reach the army, and control of military spending.”

3. “With seven factors I can forecast victory or defeat. Which of the two sovereigns possess the moral law? Which of the two generals has the most ability? With whom lie the advantages of heaven and earth? On which side is discipline most rigorously enforced? Which army is stronger? On which side are officers and men more highly trained? In which army is there greater consistency in reward and punishment?”

4. “All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, seem unable. When using forces, we must seem inactive. When we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far.”

5. “There is no instance of a country benefiting from prolonged warfare.”

6. “In war let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns.”

7. “The captured soldiers should be kindly treated and kept.” Kindly treating prisoners of war destroys the evil image enemy propaganda paints.

8. “In the practical art of war, the best thing is taking the enemy’s country whole and intact, not to shatter and destroy it. It is better to capture an army than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment, a company than to destroy it. Hence, to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme intelligence; supreme intelligence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” In Operation Desert Storm, American planes heavily bombed the Iraqis, took aerial photos of the destruction, and dropped copies of the pictures on the enemy. Many Iraqi soldiers surrendered when seeing what they were up against. This psychological tactic saved many lives.

9. “It is the rule of war: if our forces are ten to the enemy’s one, to surround him; if five to one, to attack him; if twice as numerous, to divide our army into two; if equally matched, we can offer battle; if slightly inferiors in numbers, we can avoid the enemy; if quite unequal in every way, we can flee from him.”

10. “There are three ways a ruler can bring misfortune upon his army. By commanding the army to advance or retreat, being ignorant of the fact that it cannot obey, this is called hobbling the army. By attempting to govern an army the same way he administers a kingdom, being ignorant of the conditions in an army, this causes restlessness in the soldier’s mind. By employing the officers of his army without discrimination, through ignorance of the military principal of adaptation to circumstances, this shakes the confidence of the soldiers.” Hitler made many mistakes listed. He staged a lengthy war, ruled his army like his country, and caused destruction. This resulted in Germany’s social, economic, political, historical, and intellectual ruin.

11. “Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.” Germany drove deep into Russia, reaching Stalingrad, but crossing the massive area took its toll on German troops, who would lose over three hundred thousand men in the Battle of Stalingrad.

12. “We can form a single united body, while the enemy must split into factions. Hence there will be a whole pitted against separate parts of a whole, making us many to the enemy’s few.”

13. “Rouse him, and learn the principals of his activity or inactivity. Force him to reveal himself, so as to find his vulnerable spots.”

14. “Military tactics are like water; for water in its natural course runs away from high places and hastens downwards. So in war the way is to avoid what is strong and strike at what is weak.”

15. “We are not fit to lead an army on the march unless we are familiar with the face of the country – its mountains and forests, its pitfalls and precipices, its marshes and swamps. We shall be unable to use the environment as an advantage unless we make use of local guides.”

16. “Now a soldier’s spirit is keenest in the morning; by noonday it has begun to flag; and in the evening his mind is bent only on returning to camp. A clever general avoids an army when its spirit is keen, but attacks it when it is sluggish and inclined to return. This is the art of studying moods.”

17. “It is a military axiom not to advance uphill against the enemy, nor to oppose him when he comes downhill.”

18. “Do not swallow bait offered by the enemy. Do not interfere with an army that is returning home.”

19. “When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.”

20. “There are five dangerous faults which may affect a general: recklessness, which leads to destruction; cowardice, which leads to capture; a hasty temper, which can be provoked by insults; a delicacy of honor, which is sensitive to shame; over concern for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.”

21. “Camp in high places, facing the sun. Do not climb heights in order to fight.”

22. “After crossing a river, get far away from it. When an invading force marches across a river, do not advance to meet it in mid-stream. It will be best to let half the army cross, and then deliver your attack.”

23. “If forced to fight in a salt marsh, you should have water and grass near you, and get your back to a clump of trees. In dry, level country, take up an easily accessible position with rising ground to your right and rear so the danger may be in front and safety lie behind. If you are careful of your men and camp on hard ground, the army will be free from disease of every kind, and this will spell victory.”

24. “If his place of encampment is of easy access, he is tendering a bait.”

25. “The rising of birds in their flight is the sign of an ambush. Startled beasts indicate a sudden attack is coming.”

26. “When some are seen advancing and some retreating, it is a lure. If those who are sent to draw water begin by drinking themselves, the army is suffering from thirst. If birds gather on any spot, it is unoccupied. Clamor by night betokens nervousness.”

27. “We may distinguish six kinds of terrain: accessible ground, entangling ground, temporizing ground, narrow passes, precipitous heights, and positions at a great distance from the enemy.”

28. “Ground which can be freely traversed by both sides is called accessible. With regard to this ground, be before the enemy in occupying sunny spots, and carefully guard your line of supplies.”

29. “Ground which can be abandoned but is hard to reoccupy is called entangling. For this ground if the enemy is unprepared you may go forth and defeat him. But if the enemy is prepared for your coming, and you fail to defeat him, then, return being impossible, disaster will ensue.”

30. “When the position is such that neither side will gain by making the first move, it is called temporizing ground. In this position even though the enemy should offer us an attractive bait, it will be advisable not to stir forth, but rather to retreat, thus enticing the enemy in his turn; then, when part of his army has come out, we may deliver our attack with advantage.”

31. “With regard to narrow passes, if you can occupy them first, let them be strongly garrisoned and await the advent of the enemy.”

32. “With regard to precipitous heights, if you are beforehand with your adversary, you should occupy the raised and sunny spots, and there wait for him to come up. If the enemy has occupied them before you, do not follow him, but retreat and try to entice him away.”

33. “If you are situated at a great distance from the enemy, and the strength of the two armies is equal, it is not easy to provoke a battle, and fighting will be to your disadvantage.”

34. “An army is exposed to six calamities, not arising from natural causes, but from faults for which the general is responsible. These are flight, insubordination, collapse, ruin, disorganization, and rout.”

35. “When the common soldiers are too strong and their officers too weak, the result is insubordination. When the officers are too strong and the common soldiers too weak, the result is collapse. When the higher officers are angry and insubordinate and the enemy gives battle, before the commander-in-chief can determine if he is in a position to fight, the result is ruin. When the general is weak and without authority; when his orders are not clear and distinct; when there are no fixed duties assigned to officers and men; and the ranks are formed in a slovenly manner, the result is utter disorganization. When a general is unable to estimate the enemy’s strength, allows an inferior force to engage a larger one, or hurls a weak detachment against a powerful one and neglects to place picked soldiers in the front rank, the result is rout.”

36. “The art of war recognizes nine varieties of ground: dispersive ground, facile ground, contentious ground, open ground, ground of intersecting highways, serious ground, difficult ground, hemmed-in ground, and desperate ground.”

37. “When a chieftain is fighting in his own territory, it is dispersive ground. On dispersive ground I would inspire my men with unity of purpose.”

38. “When he has penetrated into hostile territory, but to no great distance, it is facile ground. On facile ground halt not, and see that there is close connection between all parts of the army.”

39. “Ground, the possession of which imports great advantage to either side, is contentious ground. On this ground attack not and hurry up the rear.”

40. “Ground on which each side has liberty of movement is open ground. On this ground do not try to block the enemy’s way, and keep a vigilant eye on defenses.”

41. “Ground which forms the key to three contiguous states, so that he who occupies it first has most of the empire at his command, is a ground of intersecting highways. On this ground I would consolidate my alliances.”

42. “When an army has penetrated into the heart of a hostile country, leaving a number of fortified cities in its rear, it is serious ground. On this ground gather plunder, and ensure a continuous stream of supplies.”

43. “Mountain forests, rugged steeps, marshes, and fens – all country that is hard to traverse: this is difficult ground. On this ground keep steady to the march and keep pushing along the road.”

44. “Ground which is reached through narrow gorges, and from which we can only retire by tortuous paths, so that a small number of the enemy would suffice to crush a large body of our men: this is hemmed in ground. On this ground resort to strategy, and block any way of retreat.”

45. “Ground, on which we can only be saved from destruction by fighting without delay, is desperate ground. On this ground fight and proclaim to your soldiers the hopelessness of saving their lives. For it is the soldier’s disposition to offer an obstinate resistance when surrounded, to fight hard when he cannot help himself, and to obey promptly when he has fallen into danger.”

46. “Skillful leaders know how to drive a wedge between the enemy’s front and rear; to prevent cooperation between his large and small divisions; to hinder the good troops from rescuing the bad; the officers from rallying their men.”

47. “There are five ways of attacking with fire: to burn soldiers in their camp, to burn stores, to burn supply trains, to burn arsenals, and to hurl dropping fire against the enemy. The materials for raising fire should always be kept in readiness. In attacking with fire, be ready for five scenarios: when a fire breaks out in an enemy’s camp, respond at once with an attack outside the camp; if there is an outbreak of fire, but the enemy remains quiet, bide your time and do not attack; when the force of the flames has reached its height, follow it up with an attack if practicable; if you can attack with fire from outside the enemy camp then do so and not wait for it to break out within; when you start a fire, be windward of it.”

48. “None should be more generously rewarded than spies. The five types of spies: local spies (inhabitants of a district), inward spies (officials of the enemy), converted spies (getting hold of enemy spies and using them for our purposes), doomed spies (spies we report to the enemy), and surviving spies (spies who bring back news from the enemy’s camp). If a secret piece of news is divulged by a spy before the time is ripe, he must be put to death.”

49. Never be the aggressor. Use war when all other options to subvert have been used. “America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom.” –John Quincy Adams

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
There will be a chapter, maybe even two, on Jesus; because he's the most influential figure in history. I'm only in the 600BCs right now though so he'll have to come later.

Jesus didn't conquer Satan or evil at all though. Neither did "God" - even tho it was the false god, Yaldabaoth, in the book of Job. Remember when god said (I'm paraphrasing) to Satan 'where have you been?' and Satan said 'walking to and fro on the earth but where have YOU been?' In other words Satan's working was clear everywhere but where was god in all this? Either way that was the false god in Job. It should have been a big red flag to ppl their god would torture his most ardent worshiper just to prove a trivial point - that Job would continue to worship. Worship me, worship me, worship me is all the false god who appears in half the Old Testament demands. Wouldn't a just, true God not care for something petty as worship? Wouldn't a just, true God just want ppl to be good ppl?

Thanks. I'm trying to do the Spiritual Declaration in a general chronological order so alot of biblical things came up first, since the Bible is one of the oldest major religious issues. Old Testament isn't my fav thing to write about; because it's thin in morality applicable to modern times. As the chapters go on the theme will shift from religion, spirituality to philosophy since human history took that shift.

This thread has changed my worldview as much as anything else I've read, so all the more reason to question you ;) Keep the juicy readable chocolate coming

Re: Elite Family Insider Returns for Q&A
The part on Lust - p370 - made me rethink how I relate differently to the men and women I like in my thoughts and emotions (I am a hetero male).
I see women more from the outside, like facing me, whenever lust is an influence, and I see them more from the inside when emotions or spirituality are the main issues. I.e. visually, I can see the world from their perspective - to some extent.
I relate to the men I like on the basis of identity, i.e. visually it is as if they were parts of me or if I were part of them.
I relate to all old people and children as if I lived part of their experiences (from the inside).

Which explains why I usually have problematic relationships with my women partners...

PEOPLE! Try this for fun. Ask "Christians" to name off 5 MIRACLES Jesus performed. Near 100% can. Then question their ability to name 5 points of his WISDOM, his teachings. About one-third utterly fail.

"Jesus died on the cross."
"Jesus was born from a virgin."
"Jesus turned water into wine."
"Jesus conquered Satan."

We hear this over and over and over. The miracles should have been excluded from the Bible. It would've weeded out the serious from silly. If you need a miracle to believe, then you'll be a great Antichrist fan. Wisdom, knowledge is more important than miracles. Starting w/ knowledge/wisdom humans can perform miracles. We can bring people back to life. We can cure disease. 3D printers can make food as Jesus did. Through knowledge/wisdom *WE* become the gods rather than the sheep and shepherds.

His wisdom is prophecy, what he says will happen will happen. Nothing we will do will change that. The farther we go in seeking wisdom the farther we go away from our Father in heaven who will give us all that we need. What you say about us becoming the gods is rubbish I don't want to be a god. I want to serve God and God alone.

Worship the Creator not the creation.
