[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: October 2005]
[faldec] I recently wrote a paper for an English class. In it I was discussing racism in America, a subject I particularly dislike. It occurred to me writing the paper that it is all related to choice and that many people would choose the relatively “easier” path of sticking with other fragments that are at least superficially the same then to build relationships with those who are different. Again, all being chosen. What is your view on this?
We believe that much of what passes as “racism” is merely “prejudice” and cannot be compared. Racism is far less of an issue within your world than your world wishes to make it. Racism has come to include every misunderstanding and misstep, along with the legitimate instances of hate-based rejection and harm.
We use the words “rejection” and “misunderstanding” for convenience of language. True rejection and misunderstanding do not exist.
In response to your question: Race divisions based on familiarity are nothing more than remnants of tribal mindsets that were once quite valid. In a world that is moving into Mature Soul consciousness, “tribe” that is based on anything superficial is strongly offensive. Fragments do not gravitate toward, and remain within, their race simply because it is “easier,” but because of cultural and societal influences and pressures. In your Mature Soul world, it is becoming more and more difficult to have loyalty toward your own Race, Culture, or local society. One is seen as ignorant, rejecting, or lazy, if one chooses that stance. One “must” be multicultural, racially-diverse, and capable of maneuvering within any foreign society.
While this is a natural evolution toward Mature Soul consciousness, your world still exists within a Young Soul Paradigm, so the maturity is not quite there for that pressure to be processed. In response to that pressure, then, and regardless of soul age, many will simply revert to the superficial definitions of “tribe,” no matter how capable one is to expand beyond that in a meaningful way. This leaves many fragments with the mental and emotional levels of diversity sustained, but not the physical diversity. This creates a lack of physical evidence that diversity is, in fact, seeding among your species and that becomes a focal point for a grand scale of karma shared among the races based upon your own ancient history as a sentient race. In other words: while racism dies down tremendously, and while the mental and emotional capabilities of individuals rise toward diversity and multicultural comprehension, the physical expression of this is still locked in “familiarity patterns.” This familiarity acts as a sanctuary for the process of adjusting to redefinitions of “tribe,” leaving many to believe that a true division exists, when it does not.
Our view, then, is not that the divisions are based on how “easy” the choice of division might be, but that these divisions are in place because transformation happens quite often from the inside, out; not by merely eliminating superficial symptoms. In fact, what is happening in your world is a True Healing. You are simply not aware of what healing looks like, or what the process is, because your systems of healing are based on alleviating symptoms as quickly as possible; not actual healing. Many fragments have been tricked, or have tricked themselves, into battling the symptoms. Some of you may sense this, finding repugnance with the current superficialities of “political correctness” over genuine healing.
