Jesus followed the call for universal love found in the Damascus Document found among the Dead Sea Scrolls of the Essene cult to which he belonged. He challenged the orthodox Jewish idea that God was the vengeful, murderous Anunnaki Enlil/Yahweh who belonged only to the Jews. Instead, Jesus “promoted the universality of God. As far as Hebrew regulators were concerned, the Jews were God’s chosen people.
RITUAL OF FORGIVENESS FOR HARM OUR ANCESTORS & ANCESTORS OF OTHERS INFLICTED
By Sasha Alex Lessin, Ph.D., Chief Focalizer, World Peace Association
Close your eyes, breathe deeply.
Picture your ancestors or even you yourself harming other people.
Next, IMAGINE YOU STAND BEFORE REPRESENTATIVES OR THE PARTICULAR PEOPLE WHOM YOUR ANCESTORS HURT.
LOOK IN THEIR EYES. SEE THEIR HUMANITY. SEE WHAT THEY LOVED, SEE THE HARM YOUR PROGENITORS OR YOU INFLICTED UPON THEM.
EMPATHIZE WITH THEIR PAIN AND THE PAIN OF THEIR DEAR ONES.
TELL THEM YOU CAN FEEL THEIR HURT. TELL THEM YOU WISH TO STOP ANY ILL FEELINGS BETWEEN YOU AND THEM.
ASK THEIR FORGIVENESS. RECEIVE IT.
THEN IT’S YOUR TURN. TELL THEM YOU FORGIVE THEM FOR THE HARM THEY CAUSED YOU OR YOUR ANCESTORS OR KINFOLK.
IMAGINE YOU AND THEIR REPRESENTATIVE PUT YOUR RIGHT PALM ON EACH OTHER’S HEARTS. LOOK IN EACH OTHER’S LEFT EYES UNTIL YOU FEEL THE SAME CONSCIOUSNESS RUNNING THROUGH BOTH OF YOU.
SAY, “I HONOR THE DIVINE IN YOU.”
