Can You Be Spiritual and Still Have Enemies? (Pt. 1)

Hetepu (Peace & Blessings) Family.

It will be MLK Day here soon and just in time because the other day my best friend sent me a djvlad video of an interview with Michael Jai White.  I have been a longtime fan of White’s martial arts movie since the 1990s and I am glad he continues to do films. Anyway, in one of the videos, he shatters the myths about Shaolin monks, ninjas and how most of the celebrities we see in the film doing martial arts are really actors and not combat martial artists the way the films portray them. It was a really good interview but the one subject that came up about Shaolin monks is how people were coaxed into believing Shaolin monks still existed because of the television series Kung Fu.

Now, for those of you who have read other posts that I have done, you know that I talk about this television series a lot because it portrayals “spiritual people” as these meek individuals walking around barefoot living an ascetic lifestyle.  It is really too bad that this TV series, which was originally pitched by and supposed to cast the legendary Bruce Lee in the lead role, ended up with David Carradine because Lee was considered to be too Asian.

The television series Kung Fu starring David Carradine.

It might have got some real Eastern philosophy inputted into the series, but instead those of us who grew up watching this series got a lot of fake imagery on what it meant to be a martial artist and fake imagery on what it means to be “spiritual.”

Consequently, I heard an individual the other day say on dealing with enemies, “When you’re really spiritual. Enemies, do not exist.”

Are you FRIGGIN kidding me? Then, the whole Story of Osar with Hru battling Set was about what? Your friends? I hate when people get spiritual concepts mixed up and have no commonsense.

Yes. Technically we do not have any enemies because we are all gods and goddesses, but if an individual does not recognize their divinity and they oppose you. They are your enemy.

Family. Being “spiritual” does not mean being “naïve” or “stupid.” I have said it before and I may be the only one who has said it because I approach Kemetic spirituality from a shamanic perspective, but Osar symbolizes an individual who is “too spiritual.” This is why he was murdered by his younger brother Set.

It does not matter how “spiritual” you are, you will always have “haters.”

The character Morpheus in the 1999 film The Matrix says it best when he told Neo about the agents. He states:

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so  inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

When Neo looks at the woman in the red dress who turns into an agent. Morpheus tells Neo when he asks if it was the Matrix:

“No. It’s another program, designed to teach you one thing: If you are not one of us, you are one of them. “

Morpheus continues by saying that agents are sentient programs that can move in and out of software while still being hard-wired to the system.  In other words, agents are our enemies which are people who act solely based upon their feelings because they have no spiritual culture.

Understand. This does not make us better than them or vice versa. It simply means that you being a “spiritually” minded individual recognizes that the Divine is within you and everything, including your enemy.  The Divine is within a poisonous snake but you would be a fool to put yourself in danger by appealing to the snake’s higher self.

Commonsense is what a lot of us (myself included) lost from watching fake spiritual shows like Kung Fu. We must remember that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, so we must protect ourselves and defend ourselves if necessary.

Again, technically we do not have any enemies because we are all gods and goddesses, but if an individual does not recognize their divinity and they oppose you. They are your enemy.

Hetepu.
