Mental Disorder, Moral Decline, and Internal Division
Misused People Gifts – Part 4
Remember that the northward people-group represents those who live in Europe and throughout the entire region of Russia. This group is unique in the same way that the other three groups are unique. This northward people-group is known for exploration, trailblazing, and setting out beyond their borders. They are people who are willing to explore the greatest ends of the world. We hear their stories throughout history. When people thought the earth was flat, it was this group of people who set out to see. They challenged this limiting thinking and set out to discover that the earth was actually round. When this group becomes a victim of misuse and abuse or their gift, it is used in a negative way. What we find is devastation and damage just like we see in the rest.
Here’s what it looks like. This people-group will perform the tasks to explore, to conquer, and to settle at any cost. This people-group will perform their gifts without having boundaries or limitations in pursuit of a goal. They will sacrifice other people-groups, put themselves in harm’s way, they will give their lives for this exploration, and they will do whatever it takes to reach a destination and goal. Here’s an example. Think back to the race for space exploration. It was the United States or the northward people-group in America and the people in Russia or the Soviet Union who are also members of the northward people-group. They were in a battle to get to space. This people-group were in a fight amongst themselves to stretch their borders beyond earth and they did so no matter what it cost. Money. Lives. No matter what the cost. No matter what the risks, they took mankind to a greater place and it didn’t matter what the cost was to achieve such a goal and that’s what the challenge to this great people-group.
While I and no one else has a complete list of all the devastations or the challenges that plague the northward people-group when their gift is misused and abused, I do have a few ideas that are easily identifiable to get you thinking.
You see, the northward people-group deal with mental disorders and mental challenges like stress in a more observable way than any of the other people groups that we’ve taken notice of. What I mean by that is, they have more and apply more pressure to themselves in their pursuits. They internalize things much differently in longing to accomplish. When compared, the other groups will take life as it comes their way. They use what’s within their boundaries, what their environment gives them, but not this northward people-group. They won’t be satisfied with what the environment dictates. The northward people-group are known for climbing to the highest peaks on earth, searching the deepest canyons, and exploring the deepest darkest caves. These pursuits create mental anguish and mental challenges in their determination to explore, discover, expand, and inhabit.
When misuse and abuse occurs, a byproduct is moral decline and moral battles. This people-group is constantly evolving, changing, and stretching its borders, as a result its morality, ability to centralize, and its beliefs are altered by the places and cultures of those places. This group is constantly shifting because of its nature to explore, to expand, to go beyond, to conquer, to take on new territories, and new habits. As a result, their environment is intermingled, intermixed, and intercultural to say the least. The greatest example of this will be the United States of America where the northward-people came, inherited, and created what is known today as a melting pot. Therefore moral behaviors shift, perspectives change, and what’s held as true doesn’t hold true as much. It’s constantly evolving, giving way to a place where there is increased chaos and conflicts.
There is no other people-group that fights internally or has internal conflicts as much as this people-group does. For example, genocide is one of it’s biproducts as seen with “the Holocaust.” At first I didn’t see this until…I started to research and study it out. It actually plays itself out in colonization which means a group of people decides to separate and detach from the centralized group. That’s how the United States was formed. One sect of the northward people-group decided to abandon the British sect or the European area and migrate to what was called the New World.
Listen to that terminology, they called it the New World because they wanted to go elsewhere. The same thing happened again and again as they explored the remaining portions of the Americas. The exploration and colonization of this people-group is unending. Due to this constantly evolving dynamic into these different places, the result is evolution and adaptation. In other words, this people-group is constantly morphing and changing with its environment. They divide, they conquer, then conquer, and divide. Groups within the group begin to form. What really caught my attention is what’s happening in the United States, which is the same in the United Kingdom (UK). While it’s a little harder to see in the UK, the United States demonstrates sects within the group through a process called democracy.
Democracy is simply a group’s way of having internal conflicts at the same time remaining one group. In fact, there’s so much conflict that during the election periods half of its people swing one way while the other half swing another way. This people-group has found a way to come in and out of division, they have forced themselves to be one, otherwise the nature of this group would continue to cause the group to break apart. That’s one of the ways in which abuse and misuse of this people-group occurs. It takes force or government to keep something like that gift contained and keep the people-group combined. Democracy is the way this group has decided to agree to disagree and that’s the only mechanism in history that has allowed them to keep their gifts in check, which is how it’s really been abused and misused.
Each time this people-group is challenged in negative ways, it creates turmoil, stress, and mental disorders. This group suffers with higher morality decline, lacking ability to determine what’s adequate, standards begin to drift away, and internal conflicts bring this group close to the point of war, civil war and even world wars. This group entertains and threatens nuclear catastrophe which demonstrates the extreme lengths and measures (abuse and misuse) of the group. Because it’s in their nature to expand, explore, and colonize new areas at any cost, they’ll sacrifice sons and daughters. They will sacrifice religions and lands. They will give up businesses and sell off possession to accomplish the goal. Whatever it takes to achieve that goal becomes a mechanism for them, which is abuse and misuse.
Lastly, the northward people-gift is what gives us the opportunity to transform the world. When used properly, this gift has the potential, as it has for many years, to bring global continuity. This group brings everyone on earth together in ways that no other people-group can. The truth is these are God’s people and just like the rest of the people-groups, He has used this northward group’s gift to promote His plan for the earth.
Question: What are some other ways in which abuse and misuse of this northward people-group’s gifts can be seen?
