Tea at Tympani Lane Records

World Message of Peace
 

It is late Summer night after the cool of evening rain at Tea at Tympani Lane Records. The EBook of poetry The Grif and Other Conversations: poetry from the street will be launched soon with video installations. This book of poetry is inspired by The Muse, my street musician friend who creates street theatre and the work of Beat Poets. The poetry is written in the voice of a Black woman in dialogue as she drives cab all night. I have written The Angel EBook of poetry inspired by The Muse, Archangel Gabriel and "The Eye" angel statue by David Altmejd. I am planning a photo installation to be included with the poems. In the background The Midnight Sun is writing and 4 lyrics await music. Some photographs are needed for the EBooks of poetry The Grif (Part II) and On watching snow falling. It is quiet night.

The following are some thoughts on gun violence in North America . . .

“ Democracy don’t rule the world, You’d better get that in your head; This world is ruled by violence, But I guess that’s better left unsaid. “
- Bob Dylan (Singer/Songwriter/Musician)

“ . . . You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him. “
- Martin Luther King Jr. (Clergyman, Peaceworker, Political Activist)

“ Writing saved me from the sin and inconvenience of violence. “
- Alice Walker (Poet, Author, Activist)

“ The West is a culture that is eating itself. “
- Rebecca Banks (Poet/Singer/Songwriter/Musician/Writer/Artist/Philosopher)

“ A culture that ignores signs from God is already dead. “
- Rebecca Banks (Poet/Singer/Songwriter/Musician/Writer/Artist/Philosopher)

“ Life is meant to be a journey, not a sado-masochistic hell. “
- Rebecca Banks (Poet/Singer/Songwriter/Musician/Writer/Artist/Philosopher)

The silent insanity of the entangled economy and culture in the West is growing into loudness, punctuated by seemingly random acts of violence, from suicide to gun violence. Domestic violence exists but it is the surprising violence of shooters in public spaces that is even more terrifying and perhaps more difficult to understand, as a lone gunman unloads on people he may only be distantly acquainted with or may not know at all. Regularly in the news, a gunman is reported to have entered a public place and wounded and/or murdered people in the ordinary course of their day.

In my opinion, committing murder may be the end result of having too many lovers, the sexual violation issues make people angry which may cause them to act in and suicide or act out and murder. Committing murder may also be the end result of being cursed (because you can’t get your marriage to work out happily in covenant) or having cursed, causing people to bully you until you pick up a gun.

The following is a list of gun violence in North America, it is mostly school shootings (a handful from Canada) and some notable assassinations/massacres.

This list is not exhaustive by any means and does not include seemingly random violences of domestic violence or occasional assassinations of everyday people. It does not include the approximately 500 missing and/or murdered Indigenous women in Canada.

Columbine: "Since the 1999 Columbine tragedy there have been sixty school shootings, double the rate seen in the previous decade."

The following insights were gleaned from life experience, 9 years of Deep Process Work and reading the news reports.

Anatomy of a Shooter:

- screwed up love life (they are cursed by someone or have cursed someone or are karmically impure because they have had too many lovers)

- may have had more than 5 lovers so are karmically impure

- they are outside the Community and may be being bullied

- lonely and isolated socially

- may be drug addicts/alcoholics

- soul colours may be discordant

- may be being raped under hypnosis (someone is “working” on them)

- large egos, self-centered have a tendency to act out if frustrated

- may be frustrated in work opportunities/aspirations

- usually men



Cure:

- happy intimate longterm love relationship

- better mentoring and discernment in love preventing sexual violation issues and karmic impurity

- a society that doesn’t ignore signs from God

– wait for a sign from God to know who to marry and stay karmically pure (consult the Oracle/local Psychics for information)

- karmic redemption for having too many lovers (through a calling for work or an arts calling)

- use of drugs/alcohol in moderation

- inclusive Community with creative interventions

- release work (deep breathing with physical exercise)

- journal keeping

- a society without a vested interest in economic drivers, social control or elite body double security paradigms

- benign cultural power paradigms (no cursing)

- everyone is socialized in the culture and the ways of the Spirit

- help people with their love lives and disseminate the Spiritual rules and live by them

- use of the internet could make them feel more connected

People’s love lives are often full of suffering in North America. It is a complicated mess when people curse their ex-lovers love lives and are cursed often causing sexual violation issues through serial relationships. Plus there are unofficial rules of love lives/the economy that may contribute to poor choices in marriage partner. When people leave relationships and are beaten on by the Community until they return, if the relationship wasn’t discerned properly this is like being tortured.

The manipulation of peoples love lives so that an entire set of people that look the same all have partners that look the same (an elite security paradigm) – I suspect the elite heads are happy (everyone else maybe less so) when the heads relationship ends the house may be expected to move (causing sexual violation issues) or if the people in the “house” are not suited enough (their psychological characteristics aren’t the same) or if the ”house” argues and can’t decide who is getting who – all these possibities set up sexual violation issues that lead to addictions, violence and war. The more people suffer, are unhappy in their love lives (celibacy, serial relationships, unsuited marriages, karmic impurity) the more they drive the economy. This love life paradigm is very expensive in suffering leading to addictions, suicide and gun violence.

(whoever is controlling the houses may have a vested interest in geopolitics/economic drivers and creating internal strife so they can take over the country? People have misconstrued ideas about who they are suited for (the guy with the smallest dick syndrome) and whoever constructs the most violence wins the girl? Someone is trying to save the capitalist economy by making everyone whores/economic drivers, making the place self destruct in addictions, suicide, gun violence? . . . )

Because the basic unit of the family is being eroded (people are getting married less) the world is going into sendup, creating conditions of violence. The more unstable families are (because the parents aren’t well suited) the less socialization and care the children receive, making a world of broken emotional people who are more likely to have broken love lives, in a broken sex toy economy, that revolves around drugs and alcohol, suicide and murder. It makes a society of people not at home and is expensive in terms of health care, welfare and quality of life.

Conflicted love lives + reduced employment (intrinsic to the nature of the computerized economy) = chaos (violence, suicide, murder possibly leading to war).

The background violence of life in North America is incredibly expensive. This society values excellence, sex and monies and the handful of people who survive being cursed who are leaders with exceptional talents that drive the economy. I suspect serial sexual relationships are very emotionally painful for most people and very commonplace in the modern world. The fallout from these paradigms is very expensive, it is a slang system based in social control, elite security paradigms and entertainment, valuing the product more than the person, sacrificing emotional well-being and 1,000’s of lives due to addictions, suicides and gun violence, this culture is out of step with the Holy Spirit.

In the New Economy gone is the heart of darkness, cursing should never connect in real time, people should be in well-suited part-time work, in happier marriages on a sign from God and the Community could be more interactive, so that people are better taken care of. Disparity issues would be lessened with real dialogue and a minimum monthly income, low cost housing and being able to get what you need for less monies, for barter or for free often with the help of the Internet. The New Economy based in the computer ushers in an era of communication and combined voices for peace, quality of life and enough. Signs from God are absolute truth meant to free the innocent and help keep covenant marriages in the society, creating a Community of peace and ultimately a world of peace.

The Way of Peace,


love,

Rebecca
