Steve is away at Lake Tahoe.
Perro is a way of speaking that all of us who are working together to build Nova Earth will need to cultivate. You won’t find it practiced much in public life because so many public figures today are venal, suborned, egotistical, etc., I’m sorry to say.
I really wish I could say differently but corruption is still rampant in our society, and especially in our public leaders. (No, not Obama. Sorry. I don’t agree.)
Just look at the judges found to be taking bribes for sentencing young offenders guilty of minor charges to Whackenhut prisons. Politicians are violating young children sent to them by Boystown. (1) Priests and bishops turn out to be pedophiles. Diplomats are on the take. Our world is a mess and speaking Perro is one attempt to emerge from it.
So now down to an informal attempt to outline it.
Perro was a form of speaking developed after the devastation of the Intergalactic Wars to see that no star wars like them happened again. It was a way of seeing that things went forward in a manner that did not generate additional conflict but sidestepped it.
There are usually only imperfect examples of it that happen in 3D because very, very few people are behaving or can behave consistently higher-dimensionally. Our dense bodies work against us. Social pressure and conditioning draw us back into conflict. Our vasanas and core issues trigger us.
Dr. Spock is a caricature of it. Capt. Kirk is a better representation. Sometimes military officers achieve it, but then they blow it with outbursts and egotistical displays.
Sometimes diplomats achieve it but then they scuttle it with their venality and other forms of corruption. You can’t speak Perro and not come from a clean place in your life. I don’t think it’s possible.
According to Archangel Michael, we used it in our hearing rooms at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.
I’d describe the way we spoke as impartial, neutral, unembellished, straightforward, and descriptive. I’d have to recapture it. I’m a wee bit out of practice. But if your life is in danger, as a refugee’s is, you’d want the person at the front of the room to speak Perro.
We had to speak that way or the Federal Court of Canada would have overturned us. I was only overturned twice in 1,500 decisions. I worked hard for that.
At the IRB, we were denied all contact with the public in any form so long as we were Members. A close relative once became entangled in a court case and I was forbidden from even calling her or having coffee with her. I could have explained many things to her but contact was strictly forbidden.
And you know what? I agree. That’s how we kept Canadian law (for the greatest part) clean. And my relative understood.
The best example of it remains a judge. Another good example is the proponents of “Non-Violent Communication.”
It involves communicating only the truth, and that, using factual language, from a place of balance, consideration, and moderation. Not easy to do.
It involves what Dragnet’s Det. Jack Webb called “the facts, ma’am, just the facts.” It involves “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
So if I were to define it, I ‘d say: Perro involves a way of speaking that sees us express the factual truth – and only that – in a way free of drama and an intent to wound, full of balance and compassion, with sufficient open and active listening to discern what’s true and important for the other person.
The more investments we have, the harder it is to stay with Perro.
The more the other person appears to us strange, threatening and dishonest, the more difficult it is.
Some of our sources ask us if we’re willing to give up our bodies to surrender to what is happening. Jesus told us to turn the other cheek and love our enemies. These examples suggest how difficult it is to be Perro, never mind speak it. But it describes the road ahead. That’s where we’re going.
I had a reading with Archangel Michael Sunday and if I have a chance, perhaps on the way down to Tahoe on the train, I’ll record what he had to say about the Greek language, which is far, far more ancient than ancient Greece. And used by many more in the universe than just the Greeks. Zorba, did you ever imagine?
