New York Times: The New Suicide Bombers: Larger and More Varied Pool, By
JAMES BENNET

http://www.nytimes.com/2002/06/21/international/middleeast/21SUIC.html

the "Larger and More Varied Pool" of folks that this article describes, and
it's analog within the Citizenry of Israel, constitute a single,
direct-measure of elevated [and augmenting] population-wide TD E/I.

such tends-strongly to come-up-against the threshold of the "volitional
diminishing-returns decision" [AoK, Ap7].

the route-to-safety is discussed in AoK, Ap7 & 8.

safety does =not= exist in "meta"-'level' "Inversion", but in Seeing that
the elevated TD E/I can, and will, empower folks' nervous systems to
'climb-obstacles' that've, formerly, blocked progress toward Peace... iff
[if and only if] the high-TD E/I condition is not 'moved away from' in
attempts to 'avoid' its inherent 'discomfort'.

'steel' yourselves with respect to achieving the Loving-Thing, and draw your
behavior to-it, little-by-little, working, always, to present Invitation to
folks 'on the other side of the line' to do the same.

See your Future as you Hope it to be.

See the Needs of your Children.

See the Needs of the Children 'on the other side of the line'.

Same-Stuff.

ask yourselves what can be done to breath Life into what you See.

then, don't 'worry' about being-'awkward'.

doing that which is unfamiliar is =always inherently-'awkward'.

hold your heads up when your own folks, all around you, 'ridicule' the
haltingly-awkward 'steps' you take, but, after double-checking that they do,
in-fact, lead in the direction of Love [in the direction that leads to what
you want for your Children] take them, anyway.

don't 'worry' about the 'anxiety' within.

the folks 'on the other side of the line' experience the Same-Stuff, too.

=Honor= each other, across the 'line' that 'divides' your populations.

=Respect= one another.

Why?

because, the 'intensity' you experience is the Same-Stuff as the 'intensity'
that folks 'on the other side of the line' experience.

Peace is a Courageous undertaking.

Respect that.

Honor yourselves.

Honor the folks 'on the other side of the line'.

Know that doing the unfamiliar thing is =Hard=.

Celebrate each small-'step' in the doing as the Triumph it is.

it's been Abstract Ignorance that's been the =only= thing that's been
thrusting your populations out from within-the-realm-of-Hope.

Remove Abstract Ignorance.

that's what your brilliantly-capable nervous systems do, if only you do not
'move away from' the "meta"-phase elevated TD E/I.

this, too, is automated, but doing it is an act of Will, and it's through
it's unfolding at the 'level' of Volitional-nervous-system function that
doing-it imbues you with Seeing-Clearly Stuff. [that is, although it's
automated, all of its stuff is 'visible'. endure, and everything becomes
clearly-visible.

but you've got to stay-on, allowing the 'intensity' to exist within.

'move away from', and you Choose to not reach your Hope.

and remember, all 'aggression' constitutes such 'moving away from' [AoK,
Ap8], because it's 'goal' is the elimination of the internal 'intensity' via
retention of that which is merely-familiar, rather than migrating to the
merely-unfamiliar stuff in which your Hope Exists.

it's jaw-hanging that such 'wispy' stuff has been the Determinant, while
you've looked-upon the Slaughter in your midsts, 'on both sides of the
line', but such is Truth.

stay-on.

meet.

talk.

Honor each other for Doing the Truly-Difficult thing.

find your way through Dispair.

find your way through Fear.

don't 'move away from'.

Honor each other.

Respect each other.

talk to each other, while knowing it's Difficult.

respect the 'awkwardness', inherent, for what it =is= - indication that
there's Striving toward that which has not been done, but which must be
done.

that's all the 'awkwardness' means.

don't 'belittle' one-another with respect to such.

do 'just' the opposite.

as that which is unfamiliar becomes familiar, through your Courageous
experiencing of it, the 'akwardness' disappears, your 'step' becomes
increasingly-strong, and your Hopes go from 'glimering' to
Concrete-Existence, right before your 'eyes', through your Choice, through
Action founded in your Choice.

Choose Love.

How?

carry the Needs of your Children in your 'Hearts', =always=. let such be
your Guide.

ask yourselves:

"How will this [that's being proposed] impact my Children's futures?"

"How will this [that's being proposed] impact the Children's futures 'on the
other side of the line?"

when you want to 'give-up', think about what 'giving-up' will mean for the
Children, on =both= sides of the 'line'.

you'll Know you're going to make-it when you find in your 'hearts' that you
cannot 'give-up', =not= on your own behalves, but be-cause you see that your
Children's futures exist, or not, in the stuff of your Choice.

this Child, and everything the Child could be, and all that the Child could
do, all the benefit that the Child could bring to folks, on both sides of
the 'line', will be =LOST= if you cannot endure the simple, but arduous,
transition from familiar Hatred to unfamiliar Love, Respect,
Honoring-each-other.

and why not do such?

after all, that which is in-you, and that which is in the one on the other
side of the 'line' is =exactly= the Same-Stuff.

your 'fear' is the other's 'fear'.

your 'Hope' is the other's 'Hope'.

your Love for your Children is the other's Love for their Children.

don't 'move away from' 'just' because it's unfamiliar.

do the Work inherent in transforming that which is unfamiliar into that
which is familiar.

don't 'give-up'.

G-d made all of us Better-than-that.

Godspeed.
