Where is Hitler? Heaven? or Hell? - Part 1

There is this part in the book (Conversation with God Book 2 “An uncommon Dialogue) where in Donald, the author and God discussing on group consciousness. Donald ask God what do You mean by the term “Your Group”, then God answered him “Group Consciousness is something that is not widely understood – yet it is extremely power and can, if you are not careful, often overcome individual consciousness. You must always, therefore, endeavour to create group consciousness wherever you go, and with whatever you do, if you wish your larger life experience on the planet to be harmonious. If you are in a group whose consciousness does not reflect your won, and you are unable at this time to effectively alter the group consciousness, it is wise to leave the group, or the group could lead you. It will go where it wants to go, regardless of where you want to go.”

In Book One Donald ask God about Hitler, in relation to group consciousness, God said to Donald, The Hitler Experience was made possible as a result of group consciousness. Many people want to say that Hitler manipulated a group – in this case, his countrymen – through the cunning and the mastery of his rhetoric. But this conveniently lays all the blame at Hitler’s feet – which is exactly where the mass of the people want it. But Hitler could do nothing without the cooperation and support and willing submission of millions of people. The subgroup which called itself Germans must assume an enormous burden of responsibility for the Holocaust. As must, to some degree, the larger group called Humans, which, it if did nothing else, allowed itself to remain indifferent and apathetic to the suffering in Germany until it reached so massive a scale that even the most cold – hearted isolationists could no longer ignore it. You see it was collective consciousness which provided fertile soil for the growth of the Nazi Movement. Hitler seized the moment, but he did not create it. It’s important to understand the lessen here. A group consciousness which speaks constantly of separation and superiority produces loss of compassion on a massive scale, and loss of compassion in inevitably followed by loss of conscience. A collective concept rooted in strict nationalism ignores the plights of others, yet makes everyone else responsible for yours, thus justifying retaliation, “rectification,” and war. Auschwitz was the Nazi solution to – an attempt to “rectify” – the “Jewish Problem.” The horror of the Hitler Experience was not that he perpetrated it one the human race, but that the human race allowed him to. The astonishment is not only that a Hitler came along, but also that so many others went along. The shame is not only that Hitler killed millions of Jews, but also that millions of Jews had to be killed before Hitler was stopped. The purpose of the Hitler Experience was to show humanity to itself. Throughout history you have had remarkable teachers, each presenting extraordinary opportunities to remember WHO YOU REALLY ARE. These teachers have shown you the highest and the lowest of he human potential. They have presented vivid, breathtaking examples of what it can mean to be human – of where one can go with the experience, of where a lot of you can and will go, given your consciousness. The thing to remember: consciousness is everything, it creates your experience. Group consciousness is powerful and produces outcomes of unspeakable beauty or ugliness. The choice is always yours. If you are not satisfied with the consciousness of your group, seek to change it. The best way to change the consciousness of others is by your example. If your example is not enough, form you own group – you be the source of the consciousness you wish others to experience. They will – when you do. It begins with you. Everything. All things. You want the word to change? Change things in your won world. Hitler gave you a golden opportunity to do that. The Hitler Experience – like the Christ Experience – is profound in its implications and the truths it revealed to you about you. Yet those larger awarenesses live – in the case of Hitler or Buddha, Genghis Kahn or hare Krishna, Attila and Hun or Jesus the Christ – only so long as your memories of them live. That is why Jews build monuments to the Holocaust and ask you never to forget it. For there is a little bit of Hitler in all of you – and it is only a matter of degree. Wiping out a people is wiping out a people, whether at Auschwitz or Wounded Knee.

Then Donald ask, So Hitler was sent us to provide us a lesson about the horrors man can commit, the levels to which man can sink?

God replied, Hitler was not sent to you, Hitler was created by you. He arose out of Collective Consciousness, and could not have existed without it. That is the lesson. The consciousness of separation, segregation, superiority – of “we” versus “they,” of “us” and “them” – is what creates the Hitler Experience. The consciousness of Divine brotherhood, of unity, of Oneness, of “ours” rather than “yours” / “mine”, is what creates the Christ Experience. When the pain is “ours”, not just “yours”, when the joy is “ours”, not just “mine”, when the whole life experience is Ours, then it is at last truly that – a Whole Life Experience.

Where is Hitler? Heaven? or Hell? - Part 2

In book one, God and Donald were talking about the good things and the bad things...where in God said “I do not love “good” more than I love “bad.” Hitler went to Heaven. When you understand this, you will understand God.

In book one, it is very clear that God said that Hitler is in heaven, as what Donald recalled, he then ask God “Why Did Hitler go to Heaven”?

God answered, because Hitler did nothing “wrong.” Hitler simply did what he did. I remind you again that for many years millions thought he was “right.” How, then, could he help but think so? If you float out a crazy idea, and ten million people agree with you, you might not think you’re so crazy. The world decided – finally – that Hitler was “wrong.” That is to say, the world’s people made a new assessment of WHO THEY ARE, and Who They Chose To Be, in relationship to the Hitler Experience. He held up a yardstick! He set a parameter, a border against which we could measure and limit our ideas about ourselves. Christ did the same thing, at the other end of the spectrum. There have been other Christ, and other Hitler. And there will be again. Be ever vigilant, then. For people of both high and low consciousness walk among you – even as you walk among others. Which consciousness do you take with you.

Donald still hesitated, he ask God how he could have been rewarded for what he did?

God said, First, understand that death is not an end, but a beginning; not a horror, but a joy. It is not a closing down, but an opening up. That happiest moment of your life will be the moment it ends. That’s because it doesn’t end but only goes on in ways so magnificent, so full of peace and wisdom and joy, as to make it difficult to describe and impossible for you to comprehend. So the first thing you have to understand – as I’ve already explained to you – is that Hitler didn’t hurt any one. In sense, he didn’t inflict suffering, he ended it. It was the Buddha who said “Life is suffering.” The Buddha was right.

But even if I accept that – Hitler didn’t know he was actually doing good. He thought he was doing bad!, Donald said.

No, he didn’t think he was doing something “bad.” He actually thought he was helping his people. And that’s what you don’t understand. No one does anything that is “wrong,” given their model of the world. If you think Hitler acted insanely and all the while knew that he was insane, then you understand nothing of the complexity of human experience. Hitler thought he was doing good for his people. And his people thought so, too! That was the insanity of it! The largest part of the nation agreed with him! You have declared that Hitler was “wrong.” Good. By this measure you have come to define yourself, know more about yourself. Good. But don’t condemn Hitler for showing you that. Someone had to. You cannot know cold unless there is hot, up unless there is down, left unless there is right. Do not condemn the one and bless the other. To do so is to fail to understand. For centuries people have been condemning Adam and Eve. They are said to have committed Original Sin. I tell you this: It was the Original Blessing. For without this event, the partaking of the knowledge of good and evil, you would not even know the two possibilities existed! Indeed, before the so called Fall of Adam, these two possibilities exist. There was no “evil.” Everyone and everything existed in a sate of constant perfection. It was, literally, paradise. Yet you didn’t know it was paradise – could not experience it as perfection – because you knew nothing else. Shall you then condemn Adam and Eve, or thank them? And what, say you, shall I do with Hitler? I tell you this: God’s love and gods compassion, God’s wisdom and God’s forgiveness, God’s intention and God’s purpose, are large enough to include the most heinous crime and the most heinous criminal. You may not agree with this, but it does not matter. You have just learned what came here to discover.

One of the best story right? Anyways, I just want you to reflect on this things Everyone who will be reading this article.

The Parable of the Little Soul and the Sun

There once was a soul who knew itself to be the light. This was a new soul, and so, anxious for experience. "I am the light," it said. "i am the light." Yet all the knowing of it and all the saying of it could not substitute for the experience of it. and in the realm from which this soul emerged, there was nothing but the light. Every soul was grand, every soul was magnificiet, and every soul shone with the brilliance of My awesome light. And so the little soul in question was as a candle in the sun. In the midst of the grandest light - of which it was a part - it could not see itself, nor experience itself as Who and What it Really Is.

Now it came to pass that this soul yearned and yearned to know itself. and so great was its yearning that I one day said, "Do you know, Little One, what you must do to satisfy this yearning of yours?"

"Oh, what, God? What? I'll do anything!" The little soul said.

"You must separate yourself from the rest of us," I answered, "and then you must call upon yourself the darkness."

"What is the darkness, o Holy One?" the little soul asked.

"That which you are not," I replied, and the soul understood.

And so this the soul did, removing itself from the All, yea, going even unto another realm. and in this realm the soul had the power to call into its experience all the sorts of darkness. and this it did.

Yet in the midst of all the darkness did it cry out, "Father, Father, why hast Thou forsaken me? Even as have in your blackest times. Yet i have never forsaken you, but stand by you always, ready to remind you of Who You really Are; ready, always ready, to call you home.

"You may choose to be any Part of God you wish to be," I said to the Little Soul. "You are Absolute Divinity, experiencing Itself. What Aspect of Divinity do you now wish to experience as you?"

"You mean i have a choice?" asked the Little Soul. And I answered, "Yes. You may choose to experience any Aspect of Divinity in, as, and through you."

"Okay," said the Little Soul, "then I choose Forgiveness. I want to experience my Self as that Aspect of god called Complete Forgiveness."

Well, this created a little challenge, as you can image.

there was no one to forgive. All i have created is Perfection and Love.

"No one to forgive?" asked the Little Soul, somewhat incredulously.

"No one," I repeated. "Look around you. Do you see any souls less perfect, less wonderful than you?"

At this the Little Soul twirled around, and was surprised to see himself surrounded by all the souls in heaven. they had come from far and wide throughout the Kingdom, because they heard that the Little Soul was having an extraordinary Conversation with God.

"I see none less perfect than I!" the Little Soul exclaimed. "who, then, shall i have to forgive?"

Just then, another soul stepped forward from the crowd. "You may forgive me," said this Friendly Soul.

"For what?" the Little Soul asked.

"I will come into your next physical lifetime and do something for you to forgive," replied the Friendly Soul.

"But what? What could you, a being of such Perfect Light, do to make me want to forgive you?" the Little Soul Wanted to know.

"Oh," smiled the Friendly Soul, "I'm sure we can think of something."

"But why would you want to do this?" The Little Soul could not figure out why a being of such perfection would want to slow down its vibration so much that it could actually do something "bad."

"Simple," the Friendly Soul explained, "I would do it because I LOVE YOU. You want to experience your Self as Forgiving, don't you? Besides, you've done the same for me."

"I have?" asked the Little Soul.

"Of course. Don't you remember. We've been All Of it, you and I. We've been the Up and the Down of it, and the Left and the Right of it. We've been the Here and the There of it, and the Now and the Then of It.

"And we've done it by agreement, so that each of us might experience ourselves as The Grandest Part of God. For we have understood that...

"In the absence of that which You Are Not, that Which You Are NOT.

"In the absence of 'cold', you cannot be 'warm'. In the absence of 'sad', you cannot be 'happy' without a thing called 'evil', the experience of you call 'good' cannot exist.

If you wish to be a thing, something or someone opposite to that has to show up somewhere in your universe to make that possible."

The Friendly Soul then explained that those people are God's Special Angels, and these conditions God's Gifts.

"I ask only one thing in return," the Friendly Soul declared."

"Anything! Anything," the Little Soul cried. He was excited now to know that he could experience every Divine Aspect of God. He understood, now, The Plan.

"In the moment that I strike you and smite you," said the Friendly Soul, "in the moment that I do the worst to you that you could ever imagine - in that self same moment.... remember Who I Really Am."

"Oh, I wont forget!" promised the Little Soul. "I will see you in the perfection with which i hold you now, and I will remember Who You are, always."
