THE RED PILL

DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE

 

Are you in the protection and care of a shepherd?

I ran across a facebook post this morning, that read something like, when your beliefs are challanged, you can turn away or stand up, we must stand up and persevere and be as shepards to protect the flock. I wanted to jump all over this one but decided to use it to teach myself something. Here is what I learned so far.

I decided to learn the meanings of the words shepherd, sheep, flock. I will leave it up to those that read this post to see for themselves if they have not already done so. This took me to searches of images of Jesus with sheep. I selected one particular image of Jesus carrying the sheep and it led me to an article entitled Soul Food, keeping my eyes on Jesus.

It contained pretty much what I expected, bible verses and such but it wasn't until I reached near the end of the article that shook me a bit. The article pointed out the back story of shepherds carrying a lamb or sheep. If a shepherd had a rebellious lamb or sheep that would not follow a shepherd, the shepherd would break the animals legs and carry it around their neck until the animals legs would heal. By the time the animals legs would heal the animal would have become used to being next to and close to the shepherd and would never wander off again. The author of the article then states some of you have had your spiritual legs broken and you have nobody but god, but quit whining about it because its the best place you could ever be in your whole life.

People think of the shepherd protecting the flock, but the only reason the flock is protected is because the shepherd is either going to use the flock to survive by fleecing, selling, eating or breeding. The shepherd is identified as the protector but all the while is the same one who comes to take from the flock. The protector is only saving the flock for his or her use. The image of carrying the animal around his or her neck gives the appearance of love and care but it was the shepherd who snapped the legs of the animal to make it obediant and dependent.  So the shepherd says beware of the wolves who appear as sheep, but it sounds to me like the sheep should be equally aware of the shepherd who appers to care for them.  As Dr. B has attempted to point out, if you see yourself as the sheep or in the flock you are already in trouble.

The power to enhance perception is of the utmost importance.

@ Brandon, your response reminded me of the conversation in the film, The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Polygraph Operator: I'm going to ask you a series of control questions. Are you currently in a seated position?

Klaatu: Yes.

Polygraph Operator: Are you human?

Klaatu: My body is.

Polygraph Operator: Do you feel pain?

Klaatu: My body does.

Interesting perspective on the image of the man holding the lamb. I have some pictures of an archaic version and of course the young man's complexion is much much darker. Reading this made me think....  Would i rather be born into a culture where people are using the physical or mental to control the actions of people?  I'm thinking that my answer is physical, being that the mental controls the physical. Then i think about Dr. Black saying... "A god can't be made into a slave, nor can a slave be made into a god" and that makes me think that the Mind of a God cannot be enslaved. No matter what you do to me, no matter what you teach me and no matter where or how you try to lock me up... the I in me is Free.

More perspective on the lamb comes from Aries, the season of spring, the springer point in the blueprint of the arch, etc... These symbols are so layered!

Indeed Dr. B.  So many willingly place themselves in the flock as well.

@Adisa-Sheep are trained to NOT, look for the path to freedom.

Adisa-You are now engaged into what this is about, and that is the process of learning how to learn in order for the first steps to be taken that "can" lead onto the path toward SELF.
