The Importance of The American Flag

American Flag


Everything exists because of its energy. It is the lifeblood of any organism. When the energy of the body is used up and it is not able to keep up its regular functions, it dies. The same concept applies to the life of groups and establishments. If there is not enough energy to run a group, it will dismantle.

The forefathers understood this concept. They understood the need to perpetuate and maintain the establishment of the United States of America as a living organism. They did this by infusing it with so much energy in the form of passion, pride, sacrifice, and integrity. And just like banks store money, a strong symbol is the storage tank for all the energy that a group needs. The forefathers understood this. That’s why they painstakingly created a flag that was worthy to represent all we stand for as a nation.

It is the same flag that generation after generation of Americans have lived and died under. The flag is the holding tank for all energetic residual of our collective struggles and victories. It holds the conviction of every American soldier in battle fighting through each onslaught. Every soldier’s sacred moments of triumph, and billions more, are contained in the symbol of the American flag.

Practitioners of energy work know of a sure fire means to energetically neutralize something. It is by either physically or symbolically burning it. It’s the best way to cleanse anything of the unwanted energies. That is what is being done when someone burns the American flag. They are neutralizing it of all the passion, sacrifice and dedication that has been accumulating in the archives of our American pride.

That’s why it is so offensive when someone burns the flag. They are taking it upon themselves to burn off the sacrifice of many generations. They are like spoiled children who want to destroy something sacred just to get a moment of attention.

They need to know that the passion they feel for the cause of the month is like an anthill next to the mountain of discipline and dedication of the generations of soldiers who fought and died for the cause of freedom. Energetically they are trying to empty all the reserve lifeblood that was poured into the symbol of the American Flag through their overt act. It is their misguided attempt to feel powerful.

There are two reasons that someone would want to burn the American flag. The first reason is because they’re ignorant of the ramifications of what they’re doing. In that case they need to be protected from their actions. The second reason is because they know exactly what they’re doing. In that case they should be treated as a traitor and we, the collective group of Americans, should be protected from their overt act. Whenever I have seen a flag being burned, I see it as an act of treason.

Every American can assist to refill the reserve tanks of American pride by displaying the American flag in reverence. Honor the troops and their service. Support them in every way. Send Love to America in your daily prayers and contemplations. Make it a priority. People like to complain about the government but that just dissipates its effectiveness. We are all like spoiled teenagers who don’t fully comprehend the magnitude of our privilege.

Respect our President. Respect him for being a direct descendant of the process of freedom that started with George Washington. Many who claim to be patriots and tear down the president are actually burning the flag of freedom. You can’t know the subtle and overt influences that are being balanced through his position. They are things that would crumble a lesser man. If you don’t respect him, respect the process that the forefathers laid out in their wisdom.

Also, by perceiving other Americans as the enemy, we are using a strategic war practice of divide and conquer on ourselves. We are hurting ourselves. Divide and conquer is a political tactic that each American should reject. It takes integrity to see the similarities in others rather than seeing the differences.

Respecting our differences is the glue that the forefathers saw as holding us together as a strong nation. We are the United States of America, not the divided states of America. We can all show our patriotism by respecting the rights of all the individuals who make up our great nation.

I never understood why people choose to burn the flag. Defacing a symbol of freedom, particularly freedom of speech seems contradictory. The beauty of this country is we have a right to protest. The problem is how people use that right express their views. There are more positive and productive methods to voice your point of view. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, this is very informative, I strongly agree with this posting. When I was young I once read a book with the phrase “Unity of Purpose”. How powerful of a statement, it can be very related to the unity of the flag, we are nothing indivisually, but have so much momentum when we are associated with a common purpose!

Great Post!

What a great topic to discuss, especially since Flag day has just passed and we are not about to celebrate the 4th of July. Our founding fathers put a lot of thought into how the USA would be and our flag is a direct reflection of everything we stand for. There are methods of disagreeing or responding politically through civil disobedience as opposed to committing a crime. Yet, people choose to see only what they want to see instead of educating others to help them understand their perspective. This article clearly demonstrates that struggle. I couldn’t have said it better myself. It is something I intend to print and share with friends as we celebrate this 4th of July. God Bless America!

What a great post! I’ve always felt deep passion for this country and it hurts to hear people tearing down the president or (even more painful) see them burning our flag! I lived in Texas for about seven years and got to experience the powerful synergy of a highly patriotic community. I loved that energy.

I could never put my finger on why it made my heart ache so deeply when I saw our flag being burned, NOW I understand.

Fantastic job. I’m going to go out and get a fresh new flag for our house this summer.
God bless America!

This morning i was commenting on a topic in Arabcrunch it was about (Mark Zuckerberg) & i was surprised by one of the persons who leaves his comment saying :<>
I did relate the two topics because they are pointing the same thing the respect of what is sacred , the American flag or any other flag must be definitively respected because it is the symbol of me, you and us , the symbol of freedom dignity …when this one is badly treated by burning means ,the one who did that did not respect this me, you & us in other hand they want to provoke the us which is not acceptable and may be can lead to very bad consequences .
I m not American but i love America & American people & never politicians can be the measure for a hall nation , the nation is stable but the politicians are changeable .
god bless all nations so that every body on this globe can enjoy the happiness of friendship & peace !

I’ve never really agreed with any type of patriotism to one specific country because I believe in unity through knowledge of worldwide issues, but it’s a fair statement to make – however posts like this make me realise how we must adhere to certain expectations on a global scale and not just localize everything, as much as Americans would like to see the internet as their playground, this is still a global forum, and as such it’d be nice to see mention of the freedom and liberty ‘you’ afford others, that is lamented and lauded constantly but from what i have seen only ever exemplified on an individual level. Take care and thank you for this post.
