In Search of Truth and Freedom; A Path from Ignorance to Awareness (Book) - 2/25/2010 9:42:26 AM|
I expressed my view of the purpose of life in a poem here:
I believe everyone has precisely the same purpose of life - the fundamental thing life on this whirling space pebble should accomplish.
We look at a fact, derive meaning, assess value, determine mission, and realize purpose, IN THAT ORDER, if we want to get it right.
I shall discuss all of those in a future article.
Feel free to respond.
In Search of Truth and Freedom; A Path from Ignorance to Awareness (Book) - 9/22/2007 12:05:02 PM
This book is a powerful analysis of material existence and our connection to the higher spheres-- the most profound I have encountered in my lifelong search through religious history, philosopohy, and scientific discovery...
"In Search of Truth and Freedom" makes a significant contribution to our slowly expanding awareness. And, with it, Dietmar Rothe makes my list of "the world's 100 greatest thinkers."
Key Teachings of Jmmanuel (Article) - 1/26/2008 11:30:45 PM
The teachings of Jmmanuel are absolutely in line with the emerging field of alternative archeology. Scholars such as Zecharia Sitchin have set the record straight concerning our forgotten and deluded past when it comes to who are we, why are we here and where are we going. It is no longer a question of who is god and what is religion, but rather now a question of what must we do to free ourselves from ignorance and evolve to a higher spiritual plane.
Before you make comments on a subject that you have little knowledge of you should familiarize yourself with the hard and painstaking research that many highly reputable scholars and scientists have endured in order to find the truth while breaking through the hardened and intentional brainwashing of our forefathers. I for one appreciate Dietmar's pioneering research into a document that I for one will study until the pages fall apart and the words are no longer legible, then I will buy another copy and do the same.
The teachings of Jmmanuel are to be taken seriously and not disregarded as a hoax or fabrication from the human mind. When you begin to study the true nature of the spirit and the words of Jmmanuel you will realize that it is truth. There simply is no other way around it. First it will feel kind of warm and fuzzy and then it will gain momentum until you are left realizing that this is not a joke and then it will hit you and burn in your heart like the hottest flame. Once you have set your foot upon the path of spiritual enlightenment you will inevitably arrive at these conclusions at some point in time.
The original document was written in Aramaic and at the very time of "Jesus'" life here on earth. Having been found by Eduard Meier and Isa Rashid and then translated and encoded by the same into German it was then brought to the public and published at a very high cost.
Dr. Rothe, Thank you for your research and academia into the subject. It has helped me, and I'm sure a great many others, gain a greater understanding of our purpose and intention here while bringing to light one of the most important subjects facing the human condition as we know it.
Euthanasia or Murder? (Article) - 4/27/2005 9:32:36 PM
Unfortunately, it was Terri herself who wanted to be pulled off the life supports. The jurors and the judge both acquiesced to her wishes, which were that she not be kept alive through intervention if she ever became incapicitated and to be allowed to die a natural death. In that sense, the judicial outcome was a victory for Terri and her wish to die a natural death.
Personally, I would prefer to battle it out on the feeding tube until Father Time and Mother Nature made their decision despite anyone else's best intentions. But Terri had stated otherwise. And the jurors and judge acquiesced to her.
What made all this difficult to ascertain was that her parents denied that she made any such wish and accused her husband of creating the alleged fiction, who they painted as a greedy money-grubbing opportunist. I admit that I too was inclined to view the husband in this light.
But after careful deliberations, the jury found that Terri wanted to die a natural death and they let her do so. But her parents wanted her to keep on with her struggle to live, but they had to watch her die unable to intervene.
But worse are the tens of thousands of innocent mothers, children, farmers etc being bombed and melted in Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, and covertly Iran in the quiet names of oil and opium.
The U.S. and Britain are entering the third year of the war in Iraq and the fourth year in Afghanistan.
Increasingly, many Americans believe that the war is over. They think that relatively few civilians and soldiers have died. They think that U.S. interests and Iraqi interests are best served by the continued occupation of Iraq and support for the sham democracy.
This is not the reality. Veterans For Peace (www.veteransforpeace.org) know that over 100,000 Iraqi citizens have died since the beginning of the war. Over 1,500 U.S. soldiers have died. Countless others have been wounded and maimed. And, although the pictures are not shown on corporate TV, large numbers of Iraqi citizens and U.S. and/or British soldiers continue to die.
Let us tell the truth about the wars and continuing occupations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, and coverlty Iran.

Very well written and informative.
Key Teachings of Jmmanuel (Article) - 3/22/2005 5:13:09 PM
You have an interesting perspective. I think most people are obsessed with learning of things which they could never know for fact. Such as, "Is there a God?" "Is this all we will ever come to know?" Is there life after death?" It is pretty scary to think that all we might be is a minature chemical factory, creating cosmic stuff in our own biological lifeform - lives in symbiosis with a planetary object - kind of way.
Your descriptions of our existence is quite interesting. I'm looking forward to reading more of it. Of course you do realize that there may be other possibilities that we just cannot comprehend because our primitive brains are not wired to understand - to envision - more that what we now know. In fact, I suspect it is entirely possible that the reason billions of people believe in a diety is a result of their brain evolution. I think those who can see beyond the Judeo-Christian-Islamic confines are most likely wired differently.
You say you have translated the scrolls into English. In what language is the orginal text written?

Thanks for sharing a beautiful poem and best wishes for the New Year.
A New Year's Message of Hope (Article) - 1/1/2005 1:24:25 PM
With sobriety, I began a lifelong journey with spirituality. I enjoyed what you say here, and see the wisdom and truth we should all search for. Years ago at an AA meeting I heard a statement which has stayed with me. "Religion is for people scared of going to hell, while spirituality is for people who've been in hell." Very well done.

Ode To Joy (Poetry) - 3/27/2013 8:16:51 AM
Thanks for the translation from German. The few times I've heard, “Ode to Joy,” I didn't pay much attention to the words because the music is so overpowering.

Ode To Joy (Poetry) - 3/26/2013 4:17:01 PM
You have indeed reached into the well of meaning of these beautiful lines, and that is what counts, I sang Beethovens Ninths in Ottawa somewhere around 1957 I think it was, there were about three hundred and some participants, with Uri Meyer, as conductor, sold out for two days, it was the German choir Concordia, I helped found, with three other freunds now all passed away; we helped facilitate the German intontations with Uri and much laughter. Thank you for the translation, it is a monumental piece of art in music by Ludwig van Beethoven, and of course Schillers deep well of poetry, as you so deftly translated, not an easy task indeed, I would think, you might want to try the Glocke next, ha, Danke, Jasmin Horst
Ode To Joy (Poetry) - 3/26/2013 4:14:27 PM
How beautifully and naturally you've translated the words and arranged them with lovely symmetry into "rhyme and meter."
You have performed a worthy task...congratulations!

Dietmar, ein greifendes liebesvolles Gedicht, entschuldige mein deutch, is ist schon lange her, aber hier is was kleines fuer Dich.
Des Liebesschmerz ist eine Qual,
Es schneid das Herz wie kaltes Stahl,
Er laesst des Sinnen keine Ruh,
Hatt so ein Liebesschmerz wie Du.
Bitte fuehle frei, die Fehler zu korrectieren, nochmals ein sehr schoenes Gedicht. bless ya!

You sure know how to communicate and evoke a mood,Dietmar, in this case, tender love. This is a sensitive, warm tapestry of words that shares a common human experience in such a fresh, original way. Could visualize "the sun has blushed and gone to rest". Wow!!!

Great poem. I wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy, and enjoyed the exceptional phrasing-- making it understandable to the average reader.

You truly are a guiding light, and a true spirit of the universe, thank you for powerful write! Jasmin Horst
Loyalty (Poetry) - 5/28/2007 7:23:58 AM
A thoughtful, insightful write.
In the oft-quoted line "to thine own self be true," I am reminded of the therapist's fundamental advice, "Know thyself," for it is difficult to be true to yourself without having first learned who you are.
Your poetry explores much of this and turns our attention to what is basic and important: "Seek wisdom now, unfold your spirit's might and find your way into the light."
AuthorsDen writer Jeanette Cooper has just posted her poem The Silence of Goodbye which speaks to the shallowness of friendships that quietly turn to emptiness, leaving us to to stand, sadly, "alone, above all else."
In passing, I must say I was struck by the glaring light of your phrase, "Darkness dwells in ignorance."
This is my first visit to your den site, Dietmar. It will not be my last.
Mission to Earth (Poetry) - 2/24/2007 6:09:55 AM
I found this poem fascinating -- so many thoughts akin to mine, and like a whole book of philosophy in one poem ... a gift for humanity. Thank you.
Loyalty (Poetry) - 2/13/2007 1:52:02 PM
Glad I popped by to read this gritty, no nonsense, poetic commentary.
Thomas Paine's Rights of Man came to mind as I read through this write. As a tri - nation (UK) we are far removed from his ideal.
There is indeed a clash between loyalty to first community, then society, then country, and now - if the re-emergence of the constitution so-called is pushed once more - Europe!
To thine own self be true? Fair enough, but as a people we are dependent and interdependent, thus we can't be in total isolation, and therefore loyalty to at least our collective survival is paramount. I get your drift nonetheless and wished the tenets of Paine were our guiding democratic principles. In their absence, our governing elites deserve no loyalty for sure - agreed.

A Day with YOU (Poetry) - 8/28/2006 11:47:53 AM
The time has come when you and I
Share tender feelings once again,
With candle glow soft on your face,
Stilling your eager lips, and then
Losing myself in your embrace.
poignant lines..delicious.. warm..sigh

Save Our Farmland and Honor the Trust (Poetry) - 3/29/2006 7:09:55 AM
My own grandparent's farm was sold, leveled and resold into peices. Land comes at a high price per acre here. From $50/acre in the 60's to $5000 now. Good money to be made. People want the rural lifestyle. Ironic that the growth here is destroying the very prize they seek. The first sign is when a Starbucks move in. The sure kiss of death is when they build another in the same town. I don't want to know what this place will look like in twenty years...

Bravo! I enjoyed this poem.
Loyalty (Poetry) - 1/16/2006 12:48:03 PM
Very good message. This reminds me of a Russian story where the soldiers follow blindly and massacre some peaceful people traveling home to their villages after worship. Sometimes we ignore our gut instincts and follow like sheep, afraid of being called cowards...when that is what we are if we can't stand up to what we know is wrong.
Loyalty (Poetry) - 1/16/2006 8:22:50 AM
I like this composition as it is in style, theme and message.
"Loyalty" has a bag-full of teleological/THEOLOGICAL and ontological and historic points to be discussed. The heedful reader will take a first class trip on this aircraft of knowledge and wisdom.
I have enjoyed reading "Loyalty", and have learned a historic-socio-philosophical lesson.
I salute You, Poet!

Save Our Farmland and Honor the Trust (Poetry) - 1/16/2006 7:39:50 AM
Growing up in a farming community, I saw the land shrink at an alarming rate. Wonderful fields that me and my sister rode our horses past...gone. We truly do need to reconsider.

Thank you for this. I agree. I live in Ca. I applaud what you are doing!

Very well written and expressed about how farm land can be taken or granted and sold to the highest bidder. people dont understand this is how we eat all around the world. Wihout it how would we all eat?
Loyalty (Poetry) - 1/15/2006 7:44:27 PM
Though I disagree and believe God alone is sovereign, I like your style and do accept some of your theories.

There is a powerful truth within this write. A message that will have many uneasy. Great write.

is no higher bliss than wisdom,
no better friend than knowing

These lines can stand alone to promote and encourage others to follow their creed. We ARE more than we appear. A strong write, Dietmar.

No Eye Equal to Wisdom (Poetry) - 12/2/2004 6:31:30 PM
you have unearthed metaphysical wisdom and the enlightened consequence of those who venture into the realms of universal perspective and the intrinsic knowledge that man is an evolving creature who adorns the quintessential energy of an expanding spiritual being ... it reaches into the potential of man's metabolic motion by securing the truism that we are more than we appear ...
No Eye Equal to Wisdom (Poetry) - 12/2/2004 1:13:16 AM
With mind and spirit healed,
true justice can be won for all,
a chance for peace – a lasting peace
... and the real war being waged is the battle for our minds and spirits. many deceptive and alluring illusions that would keep us enslaved to darkness (i.e. lack of wisdom, insight, higher consciousness) and separated from the possibility of peace within and in the world at large

May Your days be healthy, and may Your life be long, productive and blissful.
"Babylon 2003" is a composition to be studied with the eyes of a logical mind, in order to review its teleological and philosophical points dealt within its body and throughout its verselines.
I have learned from a profound socio-poetic-philosophical writing.
