I have a theory about the Middle East- maybe it is crazy, I do not know. All those people live above vast oil fields. Oil fields consist of long-ago dead animals and plants. It must be like living above a vast graveyard. Could this somehow be affecting the people there? Or is it religion alone? Why don't these people understand that if they unified, they would be a vast power on Earth? I am re-updating this question because I am worried about the continuing unrest in the Middle East- Syria and Afghanistan, in particular. I am hoping that there is someone from this area on IQ that will explain this unrest to me; also, I wanted everyone to reconsider the oil theory...I really, really believe that people are not meant to live above oil! Peace on Earth, Jai

@Jaianniah - a few days ago in Connecting the Mind-of-God and the Law of Attraction you posted a message clearly stating that thoughts create your reality. Now here, in your updated question, you are promoting a "fear-based" thought that people are not meant to live above oil. Perhaps you ought to read your own "Mind of God" message again :)

@Stingray - Wow! Stung by the Stingray! Good job! You are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!!! I would like to point out, however, that I have this tendency to "shift around" in personality...I believe you would say that that is the reality I "choose" to believe. I cannot "choose"; the abuse was so horrendous to me that it actually caused me permanent brain damage....I have not figured out a way to change that or create a "new" reality- yet. But I am getting there, I think...more below...

(16 Feb '12, 10:18) Jaianniah

But as I learn more and more about what you have been teaching and the LOA, the more I am coming to see that I can believe in a complete healing; if I think it, it WILL HAPPEN! Right? Thank you! Forgive the long-winded comment...I would like your respect someday...it would mean a lot...TY...Jai

(16 Feb '12, 10:20) Jaianniah

@Jaianniah - The only person's respect that should matter to you is your own...to yourself :) In all your postings about yourself that I've read, there's an underlying theme that you are "wrong" or "broken" in some way. Why not consider a different point of view? ...that you might just be perfect the way you already are because in being like this it gives you a unique perspective that can help others, and when you are ready for a different kind of perfection, you can become that too.

(16 Feb '12, 10:59) Stingray

@Stingray - Wow! Right again...This week has been a powerful one for me, with lots of revelations coming my way...Thanks for "teaching me"...I never looked at it that way...as being imperfectly perfect! Jai

I have never seen large clumps of soil or land drifting off into space so the entire Earth must be recycling itself so it follows that everyone on Earth must be living above long-ago dead animals and plants...it's just varying amounts of long-ago. So your graveyard theory might not perhaps be the real reason.

I've heard all kinds of theories about the Middle East situation over the years.

Some of the more interesting and intriguing non-conventional reasons involve disruptive Earth energy centers based in that region (some suggest under alien control), last-stand battles between the forces of Good and Evil over missing knowledge from Atlantis, and even a Stargate/Portal hidden in Iraq. It's good fun to explore and research all this stuff.

I don't really have much idea what started it all off but I think it's pretty clear (to me, at least) what keeps it going.

It's basically a bigger version of a schoolyard fight right now.

You know the type of thing...one kid pushes another kid. The other kid pushes back. A friend of the original kid pushes that kid. And then another kid from the other side joins in and pushes back. And so it goes on, escalating rapidly in fury.

Soon you have a major brawl with everyone in the schoolyard fighting with each other and no-one cares what they are fighting over. In a seemingly endless cycle, they are just hitting back at anyone that hits them.

It's interesting how much hatred and venom the different sides in the Middle East have for each other. Their children seem to be conditioned into it from an early age. And we truly have reached the situation where no-one really knows anymore why they are fighting. There's all sorts of justifications like land, oil, religion...but I think it's just fighting for the sake of fighting now...because we've reached the point that it is all that some generations have ever known.

The Law of Attraction applies equally to groups of people as it does to individual people. So a group, full of hatred, can only really vibrationally manifest more vibrational matches to hatred from others which, if they observe it and act upon it, causes more hatred from them. And so the cycle just perpetuates.

How will it end?

I don't know really.

How do you stop a schoolyard fight when even the teachers are involved? Looking at the way that other similar situations have eventually resolved themselves (such as the British vs Irish terrorism situation, or even the toppling of the Berlin wall), it seems that the mass opinion of the people involved eventually just got tired of all the hatred and fighting.

Growing up during the terrorism in N.Ireland I would agree that the majority of the people just got tired of all the BS and bloodshed. I agree that generational conditioning definitely plays a big part in such disputes and it is amazing what seemingly normal people will do when caught up in a mob mentality.

(06 Feb '10, 14:06) Michaela

Living above vast oil fields affects these people all right, not because it has the karma of dead animals in it, but because oil is a source of vast wealth and therefore a source of much contention and disputes.

I am a Middle East resistant, in the area I live in there is no oil under the ground and yet still there is war. In my country we joking that it is like Mondial about every four years a battle must blow on so are we manifesting it? :)

I want tell you something about Middle East countries, not in all countries there is oil but yet in the most, and where there is oil, gulf area, there is so much secure such in Dubai, and where there is no oil there is war and battles, as in Lebanon and Palestine.

And the war in these countries is not occurred among themselves, it is between them and some another western country.

So from the LOA point of view which I believe in what happen is:

In Middle East people think it is good to be victim, and they are here to fight and fight till god will interfere and rescue them, and as they think that they only got being victims.

Leaders in western country think that they should lead and control these little wealthy countries and that is their reality, so war is created.

In the countries where there is oil and wealth people avoid war and enjoy wealth because they think wealth, in others people think they can’t be lead and they must fight and they fight.

I went through 3 to 4 wars, and my family members think more wars will come, in the recent war local people could win and not be victims so now they think war is far because they are strong and not just victims and the other country will think twice before creating one, and four years passed and still no battle so far, they think different and get something different, and even in the same country war did not effect the whole country, for example in Lebanon it only attacked South area where people believe their role in life is to fight and suffer where in North people think of enjoying life, and they are not involved in war.

Also in Middle East there is the theory of conspiracy, west world is conspire to control them, as they did during world wars, where Europe convinced them to fight with them against Hitler in return they will assist them to end the Turkish predominant over them and what they did was occupying their countries, this thought is planted in their minds and they get no other reality but being occupied and be a victim and even aggressive with strangers.

If some western person is kind with you, it is due to a policy of conspiracy because he wants to take something so be warned and do not trust any western person and the enmity is larger and larger as these are the predominant thoughts.

So it is not about oil, ground it is only about thinking the same thoughts of being victim and threatened and the thought of west to must be the leader because he born to lead.

When I introduced to LOA science I found a huge resistance and could hardly be believed, it is conspiracy to forget god. And because I used always to think different I attracted LOA acknowledge.

I admit that being from oriental back ground effect my manifestations some times unconsciously but I am good so far, and I can have the balance between being oriental and law of attraction believer which is also the core of the oldest ancient theory of what you think you are!

So was I objective in answering this question? ;) :)

Thank you so much! What a wonderful read you gave to me, an American...I needed to read what you had to say, I needed that information! We should send a reporter from the major newspapers to your house to tell America what is REALLY going on in your lands...+10 for a great answer! <3 Jai

(16 Feb '12, 17:57) Jaianniah

:) :) and it is good that I was objective when it comes to suffer and war rationality shakes. When Orientals change their thoughts that promote suffer and pain as a path to heaven and must be experienced, war could be expelled and they can enjoy life, and when west believes that universe is unlimited, oil is not depleted so there is no need to fight to get it,as they believe it is available anywhere it could shown even in their countries, change our thoughts to change the conditions.

(17 Feb '12, 08:02) r0la

You can make the same conclusion about Africa and Africans. People there believed they can’t rule them selves then they attract occupations.

When LOA is applied for humanity results will be marvelous. Let all be blessed :) :)

I have read some place (long ago now so I know not where) that, the battles supposedly started with Cain and Abel. They are the first two whose tribes had formed between Jewish and Arabian which at that time were no different but that separation and hatred from each and "We are right! No we are right!" Attitude that neither side would give up on, started the first waring.

The closest thing I can think of in America are two families The Hatfield and the McCoy families, They were two families that hated each other for generations and generations, shooting each other it was a personal war. All because of "Your great great great great great great x 10 grand dad said this to my great great great great great great x 10 grand dad!" It seems these grudges last so many generations all the children know growing up is "we hate them they are no good", the reason long long forgotten replaced with just a generic "they are bad people." I see this same thing in the middle east on a large scale spanning the countries.

It is a difficult thing to grasp, I remember hearing a comedian (American comedian) say he was over in the middle east and asked why one boy was fighting and boy replied the "his grandfather killed my grandfather" the comedian answered "oh now I understand that is terrible", "when did this happen?" The boy replied "Over 2000 years ago!" "Wow now that is grudge!" the comedian said.

Middle East with its struggles requires a deeper reading to really grasp its events, wars and fights. A conclusion after a visit for couple weeks or months is a superficial conclusion in my view.

What you read is something related to thousands of years which was the state of most people in that period of time such Romans and Europeans including Imperators and their crazy stories and wars.

(21 Nov '12, 12:03) r0la

The causes of recent struggles are totally different and the western world has a huge role in that, which western world never admit just see those people as barbarians only think about killing each other.

Let me tell you another joke from an Arabian Comedian which says: America kill us by wars and we kill her by hurricanes.

(21 Nov '12, 12:05) r0la

Which according to vibrational world is a true fact or it could just be their ‘the eastern’ manifestation to the 'killer' America in their predominant thoughts.

Oil and wealth has played into the disputes in the middle east in recent years.

When you go back to ancient history there was even more wars and killing. The fertile crescent was conquered by the Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Hittites, and Egyptians. The reason the fertile crescent was so contested is because of the two major rivers that form the "crescent", the Tigris and the Euphrates.

Afghanistan: The graveyard of Empires. Afghanistan has been contested since prehistory. Greeks, Romans, Persians, Arabs, and Islamic influences have all tried to control Afghanistan. As of the modern era, Russia and Great Britain have been the outside powers attempting to occupy the country. In 1842 Great Britain suffered their greatest defeat in the history of their nation while in Afghanistan. The United States is still fighting there not to mention the 30k troop increase.

Oil fields do not consist of long-ago dead animals and plants.
It is a lie that all of us were taught in school.

The YouTube link below is from an interview with Colonel Leroy Fletcher Prouty, who definitely had far more access to the truth of what's going on than most of us as he was closer to, and served under many of the decision makers on this planet.

Many of us here, including myself only have access to information through the internet and the mainstream media, but didn't actually live through and witness the events that created the rules by which our society is managed.

This man, however, was there and witnessed things that most of us don't get to see.

Below the link to the YouTube video is the link to the Wikipedia article on Col Fletcher Prouty.

What amazes me is that the Wikipedia article on him has not destroyed his credibility yet, as they usually tend to do with anyone who questions the status quo.

I would strongly suggest that most of you save the version of the Wikipedia article as it exists today (Feb/2012), somewhere on your personal computers, because most others on people like him have changed over time to discredit the individual.

this is the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ6bt9Yk0Tw

this is the Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Fletcher_Prouty

This end note of for r0la's benefit.
Much of what r0la is saying in confirmed by this Colonel if one is willing to read the other books and interviews that were done by him. But it is up to each one of us, (including me), to decide how much ignorance is beneficial for us to stay within our point of view.

Well I think it all runs deeper than the riches oil and worthless sand. Oil would not have worth if we humans didn't give it that. After all thousands of years ago on some island currency was shells. We naturally think how absurd. Some day when we are not oil dependant someone will think the same thing of us.

I think that this whole problem is lying with unforgivness. People are not forgiving the sins of their brothers as if they were their own. That is sad but we see this everday, everywhere. How many times have you cursed someone for cutting you off in traffic, but you yourself have done the same thing at least once. Someone on the outside would look at that and say this is all so silly...you are just driving your car why the need for agression. But they have not endured the offence like you have. The same with the middle east. We can look upon this and say this is all crazy becasue we have not lived their pain. Yet we expect them to be albe to drop this issue and we cannot even see clear enough to forgive our own disgressions. Unfortunately until we all show more love compassion and forgivness and start putting that positive energy into the universe this sickness of unforgivness and grudges will hang over us and poison us, our minds, and our loved ones. We all need compassion in giving and receiving.

Plain and simple.. the vast wealth beneath the sand makes all of them greedy and ignorant and this is no less evident when you see these people in north america massing together and doing whatever it takes to help the cause... Where I'm there is every example of how they don't hold any regard for people that are not like them... themselves subhuman and willing to kill women... children... their sons... their daugthers... for their greed and hatred of the western world successes despite the many many wars fought in north america for the struggles of Canada, the USA and Mexico...

One day there will be no one left there to raise a AK47 into the air and fire random shots, there will be no one left to kill... and no one in north america willing to help anymore... leave your wars and hatred in the middle east, do not bring it here...

well i will say this it is not about oil it never was.think about it they know there is oil from just a fee hundred years ago.when the british came to dig oil. and they are in conflict since a fee thousand year. jesus told them if you live by the sword you will die by the sword. love your neigbor as you self. and do not do what you hate,who is with out sin be the first to cast a stone. but they say we see and hear and their sin remains.



the only sword that you should have is the sword of your mouth, the sword of truth.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+6%3A10-17&version=NIV

the word is truth.

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
