An article from the October 2012 issue of THE STAR BEACON.

Is violence ever justified?

         Interesting question, and one that has been asked forever, it seems.

John Cali:
         One of my favorite spirit guides is Seth, channeled by Jane Roberts. Seth once said this: “There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred. There is no justification for murder.”
         And he said this:
         “No one dies who has not made the decision to do so. Your existence before and after death is as normal as your present life.”
Most of our world today condemns violence, hatred, and killing. But many are also able to find justification, at least under certain circumstances, for violence, hatred, and killing.
         For example, the institutionalized, legalized killing called “capital punishment.” That phrase is a euphemism which I suppose is intended to help its advocates avoid admitting it’s killing, plain and simple.
         According to Amnesty International, 96 countries had abolished capital punishment as of December 2010. As they said, “...more than two thirds of the countries in the world have abolished the death penalty in law or practice.” That’s a good thing. But other countries, including the United States, still practice it.
         Here's Spirit:

         We agree with Seth -- violence, hatred, and murder are never justified. But, as John said, there are still countries and individuals who think (and practice) otherwise.
         Let us briefly give you our perspective on this contentious subject.
You are all, as you say, “children of God.” But beyond that, you are God.
         We define God as all that is. Everything that exists is created by, and part of, God. No exceptions. That includes all people, animals, plants, etc. -- even so-called “inanimate” objects.
         Given that perspective, it’s easy to see how harming even one small part harms the whole. You, who are God, are harming yourselves and the whole when you harm any part of creation, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. It cannot be otherwise.
         So every act of violence, hatred, or killing comes back at you like a boomerang. Your violent, hateful, or murderous thoughts and words (not to mention your deeds) contribute to the further wounding of your world. Your calm, loving, peaceful thoughts contribute to the healing of your world.
         It’s that simple.
         However, as Seth also said, “No one dies who has not made the decision to do so. Your existence before and after death is as normal as your present life.”
         That is certainly true. So there are no victims or villains -- only co-creators of your experiences. But that’s another subject for another day.
         For this day we’ll leave this discussion by urging you to consider more deeply any thoughts you may hold of hatred or revenge, or anything less than loving. You are all connected and interwoven. What you do to others you do to yourselves and to all that is.
