Pedophilia: Forgiving the Unforgivable

by John Boodhansingh of Zero Mindfulness



A lot has been circulating lately with regard to the world elites being heavily entrenched in sex trafficking and pedophilia.

The light being placed on this issue (and innumerable other atrocities) will only become brighter. As this occurs, there will come a time, seemingly any day now, when “conspiracy theorists” will finally be justified in their claims, when the elites will have nowhere to turn, when the mass media will be unable to keep the truth hidden.

When the truth is broadcast the world over, the streets will be unsafe for these people to be seen. The anger and need for vengeance of average men and women will be so intense that the criminals, if not imprisoned or hidden away, will be, well, as George Bush, Sr. had once said about the truth of the Iran-Contra affair: “If the American people ever find out what we have done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us.”

Feel with an Open Mind

I’m not going to suggest for a second that when anger or any other intense emotion arises with regard to whatever comes into public awareness that these feelings aren’t felt.

I would like you to consider, however, why this is happening and how such tyranny can exist.

An Insight

I recently saw a video on YouTube that had to do with the pedophile elites. Pictures of the inside of Tony Podesta’s house were some of the evidence provided. All over the walls were grotesque photos and artwork of sometimes naked and sometimes minimally-dressed children.

I’d immediately been struck with the following insight:

This is not about pedophilia. It is, but it’s not. It’s about people who had lost their innocence in childhood in unfathomably horrible ways and have chosen to “reclaim” that innocence by grasping at shadows externally rather than seeking healing and truly reclaiming their innocence within.

Ignorance Isn’t Bliss, but Knowledge Isn’t Necessarily Bliss, Either.

Some time ago, I’d written a blog post titled: “You Are Your Parents”. The same line of thinking applies here.

The people responsible for such perversities are rehashing what they’d learned as children and are seeking externally for what they perceive to be lost within themselves.

I can imagine that many people would argue, “But this is vile. These people should still know better.”

These kinds of arguments are completely irrelevant.

When you were in college, did you, for example, ever buy alcohol for someone who was underage? And did you know better at the time?

When you were a teenager, did you ever egg someone’s car or pee on someone’s lawn?

When you were a kid, did you ever steal a candy bar from the grocery store or lie to a friend?

Have you ever done these or other unkind and unwise things as an adult?

I bet you’d known before you acted that you would be wiser not to lie or cheat or steal. I bet you’d known that if you were to get caught you’d be in deep trouble.

But you’d done it anyway, whatever your reasons might be: peer pressure, the need to feel alive, on a dare, need for approval, or whatever—all of which are directly correlated to your negative childhood programming.

The only difference between what you are guilty of and what the elites (and their associates) are guilty of is the intensity of the childhood trauma and specifics of programming.

People can’t fathom how anyone could be a pedophile, for one, because they’ve never been a pedophile, but also because they don’t understand their own selves. In not understanding themselves, in not understanding the workings of their minds, emotions, and behaviors, they cannot understand the mechanics of life or others.

Yet it’s really not complicated at all. In fact, it’s quite simple, and we can begin to learn these mechanics easily enough just as soon as we look within.

Self-Awareness

When we cannot understand ourselves, we perceive ourselves, more or less unconsciously, as powerless victims of a mean existence. We therefore blame other people and events for the woes we experience.

Contrarily, as we come to understand ourselves, we come to understand life, we come to understand others, and we come to see that rarely are we victims of other people and circumstances but we make ourselves as much, if only in our minds.

This recognition allows us to see others for who they are—the same as us—regardless of their words and actions. This recognition opens us to compassion and forgiveness.

As Long As There Are Players, There Is a Game.

We all want a better world, and this world can be.

But this world cannot manifest if we choose to instead play the dualistic, separatist game of “them not me,” if we continue to think and act like the elites are somehow different from us.

No, you and I and our neighbors are very most likely not guilty of innumerable crimes against humanity as the elites are. But we are all woven of the same fabric; we are all created from the same Source, and we will all go back to the same Source.

Had any one of us had childhoods like the childhoods of the elites, had any one of us experienced the horrid depths of torture, sexual abuse, and God-only-knows-what as children that would shape us into psychopaths and then grown up beset on all sides by such a hate-driven culture, we would do the same as adults.

With no alternatives, with no healing, with no compassionate ear to hear us or hand to lift us up, we would do the same as adults.

Forgive

Be disgusted, be angry, feel whatever discomforts come up and release them, for that is the path to healing.

All the while, make no mistake as to what I’m saying: the behaviors mentioned here are wildly distorted and must be stopped as quickly as possible; the criminals involved must be taken out, whatever that may mean.

But also, know yourself so you can know others, and forgive them.



Resources

In a similar vein, I highly recommend reading For Your Own Good: Hidden Cruelty in Child-Rearing and the Roots of Violence by the late Alice Miller.

In this book, one prominent individual who Alice examines in regard to childhood trauma and its expression in later life is Adolf Hitler.

Based on what Alice states, it seems that most authors have made Hitler to appear as we all know him: a ruthless dictator with an unshakable persona.

However, what Alice had found in the memoirs of those who had worked most closely with Hitler is that, for example, he slept very poorly and would often wake in the night screaming in terror; that he would regularly spend long periods of time sobbing.

She’d also discovered in her searches that, unlike what most biographers had written to promote the idea of a parentally supportive upbringing, Hitler’s father had physically, emotionally, and psychologically abused him excessively on a daily basis.

Alice Miller

I’ve read multiple books by Alice Miller. She was a brilliant, outside-the-box thinker who started a direly-needed transformation within the areas of psychology and raising children.

Where understanding childhood trauma is concerned, I think her book Banished Knowledge may be holy writ—it’s just that powerful and crucial for clear awareness. I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed many books in my life, but I’d never actually wished I’d written someone else’s book myself—until this one! Banished Knowledge is a must-read for parents and parents-to-be.

To note, if you pick up an early edition of Banished Knowledge, be sure to read this first.
