Re: Rép. : [anthroposophy] The Cup or the Sword
Another way to describe my point...
There is that story about Kali...
There was a Demon that at each blood drop itwas shedding in the Battle of Good againstEvil, each drops were becoming in it's turn
a demon.. So the Strategy Kali used was to usea Big Mouth and Tongue as to Lick it all.
Let me[us] see that Story as the
Encompassing Power of the Word,
of the Tongue as a Sword. :)
-BlueI do see the metaphysics behind karma and violence.Yet I (with all these planets in Taurus) seek a practicalmorality in regards to terrorism. Is strict passivitycalled for here?Besides the 'sword of the word,' is there never a time whenwe should we collectevely take military action in a practicalphysical sense against Islamic terrorism or other memessworn to kill our loved ones and ourselves?(I know the knights of old would never think twice about donningtheir armor and riding off into battle)Would a strict passivity have worked with Hitler?How about in the case of a terminal malignancy in the body.Should we likewise resort only to the metaphysical'scapel of the word' and never resort to a physical scalpel?I was wondering what APs views are about this, too.(If indeed there is such a collective ethic)Love and LightBR
