Is Killing the Same as Murder?
This is related to a previous post about the difference between force and violence. To murder is to kill, but to kill is not necessarily to murder. The same direction is applied with force and violence, violence is force but force is not necessarily violence.
Kill vs. Murder
Kill = to end a life.
Interestingly, tue, tuer in French which means to kill, comes from Latin tutor: I guard, protect, defend
It would seem kill/tue in French derives from guard/protect/defend-ing. We can infer that killing is only killing when it is used to guard, protect or defend oneself, whereas murder is not. This is the causal factor. Initiation of violence vs. defense against an aggressor.
Murder = “unlawful killing”
from PIE *mrtro-, from root *mer- “to die” (see mortal (adj.)). The spelling with -d- probably reflects influence of Anglo-French murdre, from Old French mordre, from Medieval Latin murdrum, from the Germanic root.
In which law is it unlawful? Natural Law! There is such a thing as lawful killing in Natural Law. When the Sacred Feminine is disregarded, nonviolence and nonaggression are violated and someone violates another to the point where they try to end their life, the self-defense of the Sacred Masculine is allowed to use force to end that unlawful violence and violation of rights, to whatever force necessary to end that violence.
Further validation comes from the Old Testament 10 Commandments. The translation of “Thou shalt not kill” is intentionally false, as it is really “thou shalt not murder.”
Even in the Strong’s Concordance they do not want you to understand this truth fully,
Exo 20:13 Thou shalt not(H3808) kill.(H7523)
raw-tsakh’ (H7523) (R-Tz-H)
A primitive root; properly to dash in pieces, that is, kill (a human being), especially to murder: – put to death, kill, (man-) slay (-er), murder (-er).
But in a dictionary that uses etymology, we can see the difference between kill and murder yet again.
To murder (to deliberately kill).
Murder: the crime of deliberately killing.
That is the real meaning of the Hebrew word R-Tz-H
Killing isn’t necessarily immoral. We can kill in self-defense if it comes to that. Murder is a form of killing, but it is immoral, as there is no right to do so. The Sacred Feminine principle of nonaggression and nonviolence has to be violated, a violation of rights, a violation of Natural Law, in order for self-defense to be enacted. Murder is initiation of violence by taking another’s life that caused no harm to anyone, did no aggression or violence towards another being. Killing is a causal response (self-defense of the Sacred Masculine) to an effect and violation brought upon you against your will (violation of Sacred Feminine nonaggression and nonviolence).
Understanding the applicability of Universal Cosmic Natural Moral Law for our nature of sentient animate being is different than the Laws of other sentient animate beings. We have a unique element of consciousness where we can create things that did not previously exist, for the better, or currently for the worse it seems. With great power comes great responsibility. We have great power to affect the external world, our actions and behaviors collectively produce the ways in which we live on this planet. We have Morality with our manifestations of consciousness. Actions have consequences. We can and must learn the Cause and Effect mechanism to Natural Law to recognize right from wrong, and live as moral beings.
Our actions and behaviors towards other innocent sentient animate beings are a part of us, and Universal Cosmic Natural Moral Law applies in everything we do. If we enslave other innocent sentient animate beings, then we are not truly living and embodying Natural Law, Higher Self, Higher Will, Truth, Love, Good, Right, etc. If you think you actions of support, consent and participation in the enslavement, exploitation, harm, suffering, violence or murder of other innocent sentient animate beings is not part of what you do and who you are currently choosing to be, then you do not understand yourself or Natural Law.
We can create wonderful good, and we can also create tremendous evil. There are also grades in between. So long as we embody aspects of wrongdoings and evil towards other innocent sentient animate beings, we are merely living in partial embodiment of Natural Law and are still supporters of slavery. Only Truth can allow you to cross the divide of apathy, ignorance, cowardice and denial about what you participate, support and consent to in your actions and behaviors. Our minds are powerful, and we can delude ourselves about what we are actually participating in.
We are very good at lying to ourselves, better than our ability to lie to others. It is time to let go of illusions by seeking out and embracing the Truth in all matters. Murder and enslavement of human actions applies to all sentient animate beings. The Laws of Cause and Effect, Karma and Behavioral Consequence are specific Universal Cosmic Natural Moral Laws that apply human beings alone, according to our nature as a species, just as other species have their own Laws. We are not meant to imitate other animals. We have our own path,a s they have theirs. Our includes morality, knowing and living by what is right and wrong to become more integrated, awakened, self-actualized, self-realized, self-governed sovereign beings living in true freedom and prosperity on this planet and universe.
Doesn’t that make sense? It’s in the original meaning of the words. Let me know what you think. Peace.
