The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise that is attributed to Sun Tzu, a high ranking military general and strategist. Recognized as the oldest and most successful of books in Asia it has had an influence on Eastern military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu emphasized the importance of positioning in military strategy, and that the decision to position an army must be based on both objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective beliefs of other, competitive actors in that environment. Such can be gleaned when looking upon the Chinese and Russian collaboration in the Middle Eastern conflict and their global economic confrontations with US-Anglo imperialist.
Sun Tzu asserted that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through the numbers, but rather demanded an agile state of being empowered to achieve quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. General Sun Tzu contends with the rigorous western models of thought. But rather posits planning works in a controlled environment, but in a changing environment, competing plans collide, creating unexpected situations.
Sun Tzu embarks upon a global construct combining language of the visible, invisible and spiritual through the iconic symbols depicted as (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth; (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline. Sun Tzu advancements of a wholistic paradigm historically put him at odds with much of the Euro-based and flat earth societies. As Christians the European societies found the loftier engagements of academia better suited to the Greek mindset. and so chose to live the majority of our existence advancing the inquisitions, debating the principles of the doctrine of Christ.
Where the spiritual was largely shunned and the religious leaders chose to focus upon laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works; faith toward God; doctrine of baptisms; laying on of hands; resurrection of the dead; and of eternal judgment. So, we crafted for ourselves two dimensional realities. And burned at the stake those who saw life through a different lens.
Nonetheless, the diverse societies of the world did engage the invisible realities as is evidenced in the work “Autobiography of a Yogi.” Dr. Rebecca Brown’s “He Came to Set the Captive Free.” Pre-Islamic mythology does not discriminate between gods and demons. The jinn are considered as divinities of inferior rank, having many human attributes. Whereas many in the faith based scholarly communities relegate miracles, speaking in tongues and the dynamics of the invisible realms as superstitions from a by-gone dispensation. These manifestations are no longer needed now that perfection has come to us in the form of the completed scripture. Such then becomes the company line.
But, General Sun Tzu writes, “All warfare is based on deception.” Having ability to properly assess the overload of information raining down upon us and extracting what is necessary to uncover the singularity driving global circumstance. It is an endeavor nigh on to impossible for the average person. Hence, social engineering of the collective mind, is made fit to serve as commodities for the ruling classes, and can be reduced to formula.
Before President Trump came upon the main stage with the message of “Make America Great Again!” We were a nation deceived with slumber and sleep as the United States systematically prepared to bail out the European banks. There was no hesitation in pouring billions of the American taxpayer’s dollars into an Apartheid Jewish Nation of Israel. Where, we in essence did underwrite the oppressions of the Palestinian people.
But our government representatives could not find the resources to extend unemployment, stop foreclosures or halt shipping American jobs overseas in order to acquire access to a more exploited labor pool. Or we did stand in silent consent and failed to halt President Obama’s rampage through sovereign nations, his murderous drone attacks upon American citizens, Arab Muslims. While we orchestrated the murder of foreign and domestic leaders seeking self-determination as required to bring forth a more humane response to our collective pain.
Subsequently we must conclude that the first weapon of our warfare is the ability to now access and know the truth in its seven dimensions. Whereby, we are no longer enslaved by circumstance. But are rather moved having ability to make an informed decision about our very survivals, are empowered to achieve quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Before all lines of global communication are severed by censorship and the technologies of the super powers of darkness. Whereas the Apostle Paul states that the warfare is for our minds and in this series we shall address the seven dimensions of truth needed to make us free.
