The Perpetrator and the Victim

I read the following statement this week – It’s a very controversial and sensitive subject.  What are your views on this ?. . . .

“It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, to hear, and to speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering.”—Judy Herman

A Spiritual Riddle – The Darkest Shadow -By CordieB

I am the tallest, darkest shadow to fall upon the hearts of men;
I have caused enormous calamity, failure and sin;
With me in a heart, humans seldom ever win.

Such a cold, dark, shallow shadow am I;
I bring on fears and tears, causing humans to sigh, asking why?

I’ve destroyed countless relationships, successes and faith;
I’m quite subtle, yet very strong is my wrath;
All minds and hearts will inevitably at times see me in their path.

All humans encounter me, some more than another;
You see, insecurity is my sister and worry is my brother;
My father is fear; suspicion, my mother.
I embrace souls at night like a new found lover. 
If you are not carefull, I will suffocate you under my dark, thick cover.

Like a blanket of dread, I cover my prey;
To release yourself of my wrath, you must kneel down and pray;
Stay thankful and hopeful, live day by day.  

I’ve had many second-guessing what’s wrong from right.
I cause anxiousness, apprehensiveness,
and can make hearts uptight;
But my shadow is very easily overcome by the family of light . . .

For the bright light of hope, faith, and love shine so bright
And they bring courage, security and trust to join in the fight;
Such illuminosity, clarity, and brilliance is their light,
It will cause my dark, deep shadow to fade and disappear straight into the night!

A Spiritual Riddle – I Sometimes Guide you on your Journey . . .

 

______________________________________________________________

I’ve guided multitudes of earthly beings through many dark nights

I’ve been a beacon of hope for many a man lost in his flight

Although I’m quite illuminous, I have absolutely no light energy alone . . .

I’m blessed by the light of my brethren to co-create life from cold stone

As long as my universal family shines, then I shall shine too . . .

And I, in-turn, humbly reflect that ambiance of light unto you.

So I can aide you in finding your way from the lost journey afar

And  thus, you might illuminate another who may not know whom or where they are.

Like many, I sometimes have dreary days and nights when I feel so alone,

When I’m blocked from my light source by dark storm clouds of energy unknown.

I realise it’s all an illusion, for my light soure remains true, bright and clear

But when you’re lost in dark pastures, tis hard to let go the false fear.

So in today’s midnight, I remind you even a blind man can see the light bright,

For they are not blinded by false perceptions of absense of love’s light.

You see, the blind see beauty in realness . . . and truth without lies . . .

They don’t look for false answers in the suns, moons or skies . . .

They feel warmth in kindness, compassion and love . . .

In darkness, they are guided by inner awareness, not from detachments thereof;

They love, hate or feel indifference to us for ourselves in the mist of life’s rugged race . . .

They most brilliantly  see the love in our hearts–in spite of our physical face!

Visionless, they see the hatred in our hearts, in spite of physical beauty

Like a blind child or man, we should all stress to make it our duty . . .

To look into the true hearts of children, women, and men . . .

See all people as they really are, not pre-judge by their hair, face or skin.

But you needn’t close your eyes to see the light . . .

You can have 20/20 vision and still use your insight . . .

If you’ve accepted and embraced the blessing of inner vision and true clarity

Then you understand, I once was lost but now I’m found; was blind but now I see.

But alas, I will guide you in your journey, it won’t be too late or too soon . . .

I’m a luminous guide in life’s dark forrest, I am simply . . . . (click below for answer)

The Lady with No Face (A Spiritual Riddle)

I read this riddle today written by Oscar Basurto Carbonell, who is the  author of innumerable writings related to Self Knowledge, Healing, Art for Good Health, Meditation and Spiritual Science.      Oscar is also an accomplished artist, who has been painting since his early years.  He has a great knowledge of the ancient science of techniques and designs of the Sacred Geometry, of the Ancient Symbols and of Healing Energy.

What a beautiful adorned bride! Nobody has ever been able to run away from your charm. The door of heaven and hell is open with your kiss. You always bring assistance or weeping. You are the river that leads to the sea of eternity. And also the moon ray that is diluted in the darkness. You are always passionate and faithful. Required by some and despised by others.Nevertheless, you always impose your presence. Your absence has never occurred in life. And from the old ones to the children, everyone answers your call. What is the reason to love you? What is the reason to hate you? You are in an inevitable way, the most real destiny and the deepest embrace. The weeping of death and the joy of eternal rebirth are in your voice. And you are who reveal the mystery. You are who conquer fear.  To read the rest of this post, please visit http://healingquotes.wordpress.com/2008/03/08/the-lady-with-no-face-for-reflection/
