Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejad, speaking at Columbia University, sent out the shockwaves that you might expect of a holocaust denier who has said that that Israel should be wiped off the map.”
An article in EDGE Boston, observed that CNNs Jeanne Moos presented the views of an expert in reading facial expressions. Said the face-reading expert, ”He tried to paste a smile on [as the crowd at Colombia jeered him for his remark], but actually, an anger expression came up under that [showed] actually, he got rattled by it.”
To this face reader, noticing temporary mood is a relatively trivial exercise, even if the mood belongs to a world-class fanatic who happens to be president of a nuclear-weapon-building state neighboring Iraq. Technically, that expert for CNN was an expression reader, not a face reader, or physiognomist.
As the latter sort of expert, Ill comment a bit on the leaders deep-down character, then lead you into an analysis one level deeper. Follow me into the aura of Mahmoud Amadinejad only if you have a strong curiosity and a strong stomach.
For 5,000 years, physiognomists have urged students of human nature to examine each persons most extreme face data. For the Iranian leader, that would be his ultra-down-angled eyebrows.
Really, have you ever seen a more extreme example, whether on an extremist or some peaceable gent down at your local Seven Eleven? To interpret this, I’ll use my modern-day update of the ancient art of physiognomy, Face Reading Secrets®.
On friend or foe, interpretation of any face data involves both a talent and a potential challenge. For Amadinejads long sloping brows, the talent is a long memory about the past.
What, for a holocaust denier? The mans personal list of loyalties and hatreds goes back even longer than mere 20th century historical fact. The challenge would be an inability to let go of the past. Judging from the mans public pronouncements, I find it likely that this challenge hasnt been overcome yet especially once you glimpse the guys mouth.
Even a casual observer of human nature will feel the rage packed in there, like eight great tomatoes in a little bitty can of Contadina tomato paste, only way less delicious.
So lets go beyond the obvious and use the deeper perception of physiognomy.
First VERY about that mouth is the shortness. The lips are also extremely muscular in texture. His pursed (even wallet-like, super-compressed) lips only make that texture more intense.
Like it or not, muscular lips do go with a talent: sincerity as a communicator. Does Amadinejad bow to Mecca each morning, then follow his prayers with Death to all Jews, gays, and other people who meet with my disapproval?
Does he really, really, truly, sincerely believe? Not having been invited recently into his personal quarters, I can’t say Yes based on eavesdropping. But his mouth sure tells that tale. And I must add that his muscular lips correspond to a talent for impassioned speech, an ability to move peoples emotions.
What would be the corresponding challenge? Sounding shrill. Thus, the Iranian president is a highly effective speaker on behalf of his chosen cause, both a true believer and shrilly intense.
IT GETS SCARIER
To find the man beneath the hate speech, check out his aura.
I’ll be teaching how to do this, along with some face reading workshops (the really wild one is semi-hosted by Elvis) in Massachusetts, at Circles of Wisdom this coming week. Join me tomorrow, Friday, if you can, for the free intro. (Info is at http://www.circlesofwisdom.com .)
What shows beneath temporary emotion? I’ll read:
Mahmouds heart chakra databank about What he really feels, deep down.
And there I find a heart as cold as ice. (No global warming here, honest.)
Hatred is wrapped around Amadinejads heart as a kind of perverse sales strategy. The man uses hatred, anger, and such to help with his larger passion, which is unquestionably power.
Now Ill choose one more chakra databank to read on him, because even if we had all day, who would want to linger in the energy field of this guy? Lets check out
His version of reality at the root chakra databank.
(What, you think that everyone here at Earth School lives in the same reality? Then you might have even more to learn here than I do.)
Welcome to ‘Toon Town. Here in Amadinejad-Root-Chakra-Ville, you couldnt find more extreme black-and-white. Bad guys! Heroes!
Yes, you’ll find good and bad galore, only his inner domain is populated with way more bad guys than good. Now comes the part I find truly interesting. For him, bad IS good, in the sense that anger fuels energy. Amadinejad feeds off anger the way that a vulture feeds off death.
To me, earth isnt just a spiritual school but a world of polarity, where positive and negative balance out, night follows day, winter comes after summer, hangover follows ones witty performance at the bar, and so forth.
You are reading this article, I suspect, because you care to be informed about your world. Probably you also care about being a good, following the rules. You have people you love. You may even follow a religion, whether organized or what I call disorganized. I do all of these good girl things, do them passionately.
Well, maybe people like us should get down on our knees, not for a very long time, admittedly, more like half a second, to thank folks like the Iranian President.
He has generously agreed to serve the world by taking the role of bad guy. He might balance out the equivalent of, say 5,000 do-gooders like you or me. Hey, it’s a nasty job but someone has to do it.
What’s the best way to keep a nasty-bags like that from getting any stronger? Don’t be scared of him, not for a minute. Fear and rage taste better to his aura than even ooh, think of something really gourmet delectable, maybe Coca Cola?
Take a tip from what Omigod-Big-Scary-Mahmy did yesterday. Paste on a smile. Laughter would work even better.
