The flesh, the war!
The human being
The flesh is this psychological share of our heart that is born in the animal world, our human genetic descent, which will obligatorily lead us since our birth, and more or less throughout our life. As of our design, it will start to be educated by force's reports, and will be subjected to what dominates it. It will draw some from the images that will allow to it by assimilation between them, to make the distinction between what it interpreted from good and evil.
According to education and real-
In childhood, each one will thus have more or less difficulties to accept limits to his egocentrism, necessary to his own survival in the group. This is why the conflict's notion will be with more or less great importance according to the child, and of course, according to the way of the parents to manage it.
As well renewed, as this carnal share will be by the Holy Spirit, we will always have access to it, if we give it reason. Since the fetus' conception, this construction appears and grows while adapting to the needs for survivals of its environment, while keeping a more or less good harmony with its kinds. As long as the contact with this environment will remain in the superior part of the received values, this construction will assert and be consolidated oneself in a presumption of fundamental truth of its values, and will remain acceptable for the concerned entourage. In opposition to this dimension, the problem will come when this environment does not correspond any more to its understanding of the received image, then will be born the: Conflict!
It's why being children, some unquestionable more sensitive, could be reprimanded simply by the word or a gesture significant for them, and others will have to be corrected more severely. The incidence of a soft or severe method will not appear inevitably on the behavior and the character of the adult person in a favorable environment, because the carnal of this one having been more or less subjected to image to which he will have normally given reason, he will know not to have to go beyond it. They are there the so important limits for the balance of the child then the adult, who are variable according to the individual and his background of life. The carnal share, the human share so, will have been rationalized by a mental or physical pain in order to be able to cohabit with its kinds, without too biting them, without too attacking them, without too hypocritically alluring them, without dominating too much, without too much letting themselves crush, while remaining oneself in a good balance.
Although the conflict is essential to the construction of our soul, according to its management, it will produce a stable or unstable construction. In will of tranquility, we would like to generally avoid it as an adult, but it is an error to shirk it. It will be settled by a simple movement of the glance for certain children, and others a little more severely. As of his stage of fetus, the child will thus begin to receive signals that will enable him to make the difference.
In this world of the flesh, there cannot be education without conflict situation, without initial balance of power. Although difficult to manage, these conditions are necessary; this is why they should be approached with serenity from the adult. Each one of these conflict situations is the food of the soul, in the construction of our initial individual logic. The conflict will have been positive when it brings the child to acquiescence, which will raise him in the bases of values in respect of the others. It will be negative, when it brings him in an uncontrolled dominant attitude or a crushing of his personality.
It's in this way that our soul resembles a river of mountain, near of which we would stand on a bank, and we should go across each time we meet a given situation. At each situation met one or more bridges would make it possible to go over to the other side of the valley. When this situation is known and controlled, we always borrow the same bridge and that gives satisfaction to us. The difficulty however arises when we are called into question in our usual schemes or we meet an unknown situation, especially if we must interpret it quickly. According to our position of the moment, attitude of mind in which we are, we then employ one or the other of these bridges.
More they will be in altitude close to the source, more they will be stable and robust, because will be easily anchor on a solid rock. Their length will not be very large, because the small river, and the mountains nearby one of the other, but they will remain fundamental values. If they were badly built, it will be more difficult to go up until them, their altitude being raised, but will remain in spite of that the principal communication routes. They are the bridges of our first understandings, created by each one of our relations and clash parents children in our first years. They are fundamental for our balance in the received context, because are firmly fixed at solid rock devoid of major part of sediments that become little by little our personal analyses.
The conflicts will not have always appeared to the parents besides, because in the parent-
It is indeed often easier to use the strong manner, rather than the soft manner of authority. Although it can be sometimes necessary occasionally, it is easier to make it too strong, rather than balanced. In opposite, it is quite obvious that to sit a bridge between two slopes of mountains, the tool used should not be the small brush, as to give a reproving smile, although sympathizing. Conceived to resist many years the vintages of the strong torrents of the life, it would otherwise quickly be destabilized as of the first rises of water, to see as soon as it would be taken like reasoning, especially at the adulthood.
In mountain, a bridge generally is built between two rock escarpments, nearest one the other, than can be the other parts of the slopes. They are for the child, principal times of parental contacts whose the child will keep pictures and limits of behavior in connection with the remainder of the society. Many "tools", necessary to the preparation of the two slopes of mountain, are placed at the parents' disposal. They go from the encouragement in the demonstration of love of the child, to the more or less severe reprimand.
If it is normal to take tools corresponding to work to realize, it is generally not useful to use the dynamite, which would destroy bases of the rock escarpments, and to be a benchmark for the child. This dynamite is often only an unforeseen anger or violence of one or of the two parents sometimes even between them. In his egocentrism the child then sees there as a personal implication of which it does not understand necessarily the meaning. An open hole can occur then, in the soul of the child, being able to go until sweeping one or more already existing reference point.
We simplify the problem, bringing back it here to the unit of a person or a group. If we add the family and fraternal circumstances, environment external or simple disunion of the couple, we would realize quickly that one can endeavor to build in a direction, it is easy that one other overthrows it by an deformation of the already accepted references, individual or collective. This all the more reinforces the complexity of our individual reactions.
The initial bridges are the foundations even of the individual and in general will be very frequently used thus very stable. For other persones, it can go of it from minefields in minefields. If the one who lived these minefields finds at the adulthood the impulses of his first years he sees the slopes not too distant, so that he would like to make the move towards possible parental references for example. He will however generally reject them, by fear to find a suffering identical to that lived in the childhood, which he could not support any more. More time will have passed, more the river will have widened, and less easy to him he will be walking across it, but more he might to feel himself rejected in his refusal of personal acceptance. If he then tries to apply what he thinks to perceive by far, his acts will be of such inaccuracy and influenced per so many of other received values, that all that will take him away from his aim: Recognition and love of his parents for example!
This is why it is so important to live since youth, an parents-
The first youth passed, little of bridges will be again built, and the majority of those already existing will be used, strengthening themselves in their presumption of truth or deteriorating. The valley will have widened, the slopes will be calmed down and the cultivable ground that are the reasoning, will often produce a more unstable construction of those which will be possibly created. The torrent will be generally less impetuous, but like it will be more abundant, it will remain difficult to traverse it.
The topography of the soil is changed, the mountains are more low, but the length of the bridges is greater, and their foundation more difficult. The shores are varied, and the universe of discovered widened. They appear through extra-
In order all these bridges build through upheavals of the life remain durable and reliable, it will thus be necessary to withdraw more and more alluvia of reasoning to sit them on a firm ground, if not their own weight would made them fall down. It is one of the reasons for which, when we meet God, it is necessary for us to become again like a child. They often are very difficult circumstances which will have led us there, reason for which the conflicts generated by this situation must be managed in a positive way to be advantageous. In most cases it's unfortunately very different, and can produce the destruction or the great deterioration of the original bridges used by the individual. The major part become then exclude them from our company, that we find having nothing to do roaming about the streets, fault to have been able to support the pitfalls of their failures. We are indeed much more fragile than we can suppose it when all is well; because for example we have suffered from incomprehension of our father or mother in our childhood or we have simply believed it, we have then condemned them and have retained this judgment in an subconscious way at the adulthood. We will often reproduce situations similar to those of our parents by opposed attitudes, but also extremist. It is why God gave us the fifth Commandment, (Exodus 20-
To honor his or her father and mother, indeed brings these basic essential references to the construction of all human.
If this advice is given to the children, others however are for the parents: (Ephesians 6-
Because the logic of the man is created by the conflict, the suffering and misfortune, this one does not enable him to meet the love in its true dimension!
The Old Testament is in nothing different of the new, although many keep from the old, the image from " the one who likes well, punishes well ", in order to correct with excess. There is in this proverb the balance, of whom those which assert it bring a bad image. We could read, whom loves his child before himself, can bring to him any good thing in balance, and by love for him, never in the excess neither of violence, nor weakness, in balance thus, to make him victorious of the life.
In order to be able to go further, as good as we lifted the curtain on the "divine birth monarchy " , I would like to raise a taboo of religiosity 1, which tends to interpret the "flesh" only in the sexual intercourse. It's right, Jesus said (John 3-
1) Religiosity: Effect of the sensitivity on the religious attitude, leading to a vague personal religion.
Did He fix these limits of the flesh, to the only sexual intercourse? Obviously not! If it were the case, that would like to say that all that is not sexuality is Spirit. He thus gave it for any attitude born from the heart in the animal kingdom and by the animal kingdom, that it is question of the human feelings that one can consider the best or the worst. The dimension of the flesh depends indeed well on the animal kingdom, of which sexuality forms part when it is just related to the only needs from the body, exactly as Adam and Eve. It's why it was so impossible for them to enter in the God's kingdom, after to have eaten tree of knowledge in comparison with their conscience. This conscience which is the image of God the Father in us. The "flesh" can indeed reproduce only what it knows, and what it recognizes exists only in dimension "domination / submission". It's indeed important to do the difference between submission by inferiority recognized, or submission freely agreed proven of heart like coming from God by respect of the established responsibilities, which concerns then the Spirit of God.
We thus could almost write concerning the flesh "responsibility = superiority / submission = inferiority". It is exactly what unfortunately lived and live again too much couples and families, believing by-
The flesh seeks the value in which it was formed, and in which it is thus glorified. It leads us to act as it learned how to make it for all that can bring merit to him, feeling grateful for its domination or submission, as well physically, intellectually as spiritually. We thus reproduce what we know, by assimilation with a particular situation, and gradually our soul builds itself.
It is not for that matter built really alone, because it is subjected or to "the Spirit" or dominated by "the spirit" which leads it. Don't worry, when we speak about the spirit with a small "e", even if we then do not speak about the Spirit of God, we do not speak especially about "demonic" spirits but much more incitement towards certain "feelings" adapted more or less well to a particular situation. It is a human dimension on which the enemy of our souls takes his rights, even if the Holy Spirit is also the one who can lead us. We will lingered over more time in detail in the following chapters.
Let us return for the moment to the carnal dimension of a person having lived all the mine holes resulting from the various explosions, which have sometimes left him without real constructive references. They can be for certain of them, feelings of rejection, for others complexes of inferiority, for others again inconstancies...
Their management can be difficult, because they can unfortunately do great harm, by major mental deteriorations. Those who live them can possibly note them, but without understanding them nor to be able to cure them. Sometimes these feelings push these persons in ends who make to look themselves like bad, to see "worst". If they are vaguely conscious of their problems, they possibly ascribe all their misfortunes to only one wound remained gaping which they turn over in their mind indefinitely, but do not understand that their bad behaviors are due to another of these wounds.
Those, with the bridges of our examples, are like cavities covered superficially with a fine clay film or even with a sun reflection which veils to us perception of it. As long as the person is in a thought situation, she avoids them almost naturally, but fall the foot inside each time that she meets it in a spontaneous situation. These traps disappear indeed from the conscious memory, but remain more than active in the spontaneous reactions, which take then the short cut of the spirit, without having time to pass by the supervision of our analysis. The resentments or revolts hidden under appearances of pardon due to the forgetting, suddenly give unexpected behaviors by feeling of injustice and assimilation to a first received image, even if the person acts to the opposite in conscious situations.
This human share is ours, and we even are very attached to it, because it is "our life ", our behaviors, and if we change some we get the impression not to be "ourselves". Oh! They create us sometimes difficulties these behaviors, and in certain parts of our life we would like to see them disappearing; but like we have forgot the reasons of their appearance and that they are necessary for us to protect us against the evil which we suffered or would be likely to live again, we keep them without knowing it in the dimension in which they really trap us. They remain and become even what we call: Us!
We don’t like that others touch to this share of ourselves, it is our protection bubble, that we consider us strong to possess. This consideration generally does not exist in a perceptible way to the individual, except in the cases of the wounds not closed again where this one "interpret them" like intellectually justified.
In all the other cases, this "interpretation", does not exist any more in a conscious and calculated dimension. The most numerous wounds and also the most pernicious, are however those of which we are unaware, because relatively few people circulate with gaping wounds.
All these bad stones that are detached from the bridge each time we put on the foot, to see bridges with half blown up by shooting of mines in childhood, reflect our subconscious, our spirit. All the traps are set by our human nature, and all the more affect our behaviors that we are made unconscious by what is called scientifically, neuronal pruning. Less we remember of it, more we thus assimilate it to “ourselves”. If we remembered of it, we would have opposite to it our calculated free will, whereas this set produces a short-
Why ourselves? Because the person is more spirit than body. If what we see is the body, that we live, that we “are" is spirit. That leads our soul to compared itself with the “conscience", the Father's image to which we have access, to the contrary animals. The comparison between the behaviors of our soul and that of our conscience is done in us through deforming mirror that are the carnal feelings of our subconscious, our spirit, which is born under the carnal supervision of Satan or the mirror of the Spirit of God who is the Holy Spirit given by Jesus. Carnal dimension, although "spiritual nature" is in connection with the lower spirit, and it is what we look for the moment. That of the Holy Spirit is also spiritual, but faithful to the God's image. It is through this exact mirror that God wants to make born-
The rewriting of this set can be only made through our thoughts, our words, and especially our “reactions". It is what we will look in the following chapter.
As long as we live in the initial state, only carnal dimension is in us. This is why God created the man in a spontaneous way in an existing human or not, which divides already the Christians into two groups. Extremely old traces from bodies deemed human, leads some to believe in a form of evolutionism, adamantly refuted by other who preach the thesis of the spontaneous generation. If it is more and more scientifically proved that a creator is at the origin of our creation, and not a banal stroke of luck due to fortuitous circumstances, both are right however according to the dimension that they look at, of the body or the soul, but both fight nevertheless. First conflict!
The subject not being however with the evolutionism or the spontaneous generation, let us return to our bridges. As we saw, the former generations complied to the letter with certain biblical interpretations, about the correction sometimes severe and often exaggerated by the man. Since May 68 and its "Hippie revolution" more idealized by hallucinations resulting from drug than by the realities of this world, we often passed to the extreme reverse. It arrived even a time when to make a remonstrance to a child became a form of ill-
The problem thus doesn't come from the children, but from the parents, i.e. grandparents of today. Some others of these "grandparents" would want the opposite and to return to the strong and brutal manner, from where a rise of reciprocal violence and an increasing incomprehension between the generations.
It seems since 2001 and the re-
What did it thus occur? By fear of taking a too powerful tool to dig the bridges foundations, like had perhaps done it the preceding generations, we took for to dig nor a pickaxe and often, not even a shovel, but a brush, perhaps sometimes a feather duster. However if these children, become adolescent or adult, live a conflict higher than the "feather duster", they feel attacked, but for lack of reference mark, they can find amusing to play with bombs which kill the others. They don't accept the reprimand, but consider to have rights, because they passed in the dominant position, even if this one leads some of them to living in the street, not to subject itself to the laid down rules.
We get today our sloppiness of yesterday, in front of again one time, a balance that God wanted to give.
Did not He say us ? In (Matthew 10-
Are not sparrows two a farthing? and not one of them comes to an end without your Father: But the hairs of your head are all numbered.
Then have no fear; you are of more value than a flock of sparrows.//
Although our hair is in general at the sight of all, I don't know someone, except perhaps the bald people, to have such a knowledge of themselves. All the more reason as regards that is hidden, buried under all external appearances and which are amassed in our soul. These appearances, our doubts and our presumptions lead however us often to behaviors which we consider bad for others, even though we consider them good for ourselves. We condemn the others then, without knowing their underlying thoughts. We compare ourselves, with OUR eyes. Those there do not risk to contradict to us!
In this case our analysis actually comes from the source which imposes to us our reactions and not our conscience. We contradict then such behavior, such value, such rules, such law in order to be able to live correctly and peacefully in a world of peace it seems to us. Poor of us, we would be although in the country of Robinson Crusoe, each one on our island.
As we saw in the preceding chapter, the human not being able to change itself, and each one being different from the other, can he really build an ideal universe at his own dimension?
It is not the human which we must condemn through these thoughts, but that he feels as being himself and which is only one image hidden in his soul. Even worse is the collective memory, because identified sometimes as postulate basic in which we assimilate the precepts of God.
