Three Poisons in Free West Papua Campaigns (3b)

General WPRA Amunggut Tabi stated in one of the briefings to his troops at the Central Headquarters of West Papua Revolutionary Army (WPRA) at Yako Village, Papua New Guinea that there are three poisons that have destroyed our campaigns to free West Papua, namely egoism, gossiping, and fear.

Discuss Again: Spiritual and Emotional Fear Across Melanesia

There is a mix of both spiritual and emotional fear across Melanesian peoples, in dealing with Indonesia in relation to Free West Papua campaign, but it appears that the most Melanesians actually have spiritual fear rather than emotional or natural fear.

Yes, there is natural fear among Melanesians in Papua New Guinea, but this fear only spread along the border areas between West Papua and Papua New Guinea, from Port Numbay (Indos call her Jayapura) to Maroke (Indos call her Merauke). They have seen their brothers and sisters from western side suffered, they mourned for their dead ones together, they met those fleeing from West Papua to Papua New Guinea. These make them have natural fear.

Compared to Melanesians in Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu, and Kanaky, they have never seen any single Indonesian around. They have never met any Indonesian solider or police. They have no direct experience of contact with Indonesian peoples. They never met Melanesians from West Papua crying or fleeing.

They just read from the news, the internet and electronic media. They just heard from someone in or from West Papua. But they have fear of supporting Indonesia. They have fear, but the source of fear is from inside, fear that has no cause, but fear that comes from inside a person. The seed of this fear is inside the person, it is not from stimuli outside. It is an egocentric fear, fear related to toe ego of the person, “me”, “I”, “an-an”.

What are the actual information that make Melanesians, particularly Melanesian politicians and leaders are fearful to talk about and support West Papua?

In addition to previous three “Fear-Factors” under the sub-topic “Fear Factor in Free West Papua Campaign“, we hereby add two more factors:

  1. The number one reason : fear of supporting the cause when the campaigns and campaigners are not united. Melanesian leaders are fearful of supporting West Papua independence movement is the fractions and factions within the Free West Papua campaign organisations and individuals. They choose “wait-and-see” approach when leaders or organisations from West Papua start talking about each other and attacking each other.

    Just read the history of ULMWP membership at the MSG and you will know this is the case.
  2. The reason number two is the “fear of breaking the international laws” by supporting Melanesians in West Papua who are suffering from gross and systematic human rights violations since 1 January 1962, when Indonesia militarily invaded Western New Guinea.

    Many Melanesian leaders are wrongly convinced that West Papua is legally part of Indonesia accordion to the Act of Free Choice carried out in West Papua in 1969, therefore, those individuals, politicians, leaders who speak against Indonesia in relation to West Papua is against the international Law.

    Indonesia also emphasizes the sovereignty principle in international relations, and this forces Melanesian leaders not to speak the truth.
  3. Reason number two that makes Melanesian in general and Melanesian leaders in particular are fearful of supporting West Papua independence campaign is because they are told that Indonesia is very strong military power in the South Pacific and they carry out intelligence and military operations across the South Pacific to tame and finally finish off any Melanesian leaders who support West Papua independence. Most people will mention assassinations of Iambeki Okuk, Laurenz Dloga, Hans Bomay, Theys Eluay, Fransalbert Joku, Nicolaas Jouwe, Clements Runawery, Wim Zonggonau and many others as examples of cases that can face those who strongly support Free West Papua.

    Rumours spreading in Papua New Guinea that “Indonesia is portrayed as brutal mighty military power that can attack and destroy Papua New Guinea within a day.”
  4. The reason number three is that speaking against Indonesia will not get anything financially, but not speaking against Free West Papua Campaign will get financial benefits, women benefits and trade benefits.

    As mentioned before:
    Indonesian diplomacy is famous with double “W”, = Wang – Wanita, i.,e, money and women. Look at those diplomats speaking against Melansian top leaders. Indonesia uses young diplomats, most probably ex-prostitutes, to speak against Melanesian leaders. Look at many Melanesian leaders who used to speak very loudly against human rights violations in West Papua and for self-determination, but only a few years later, or even a few months later, their mouths shut, no more hello Wantok, no more good morning Bro, let alone speaking against Indonesia.

How to Rise Up Beyond Fear

Hon Powes Parkop, MP, the Governor of the National Capital District of Papua New Guinea is the only Melanesian politician so far who have spoken openly and continuously that both Melanesians and Indonesians “must rise up beyond fear“.

He repeatedly reiterated that fear should not rule our future. We must speak from the heart, based on the truth that West Papua independence will bring great benefits to Indonesia as a modern and civilized nation-state. He says by occupying West Papua, Indonesia becomes isolated from the rest of Melanesia. Indonesia must come out and trust that the independence of West Papua is a new important era for Indonesia to become a great nation in the South Pacific, politically and more importantly economically.

From West Papua, Gen. WPRA Amunggut Tabi also repeatedly speaks in various occasions that spiritual approach is the best way to defeat or rise up beyond fear.

Note:

We are still talking about the third poison in Free West Papua campaign. The last two articles talk about the poison called “fear”. The coming two more articles will still talk about “fear”, as fear is the most disturbing mental and spiritual poison and right now it is a disease that cause us all Melanesians cannot get up for our rights, and too weak to get up and speak the truth.

Three Poisons in Free West Papua Campaigns (3a)

General WPRA Amunggut Tabi stated in one of the briefings to his troops at the Central Headquarters of West Papua Revolutionary Army (WPRA) at Yako Village, Papua New Guinea that there are three poisons that have destroyed our campaigns to free West Papua, namely egoism, gossiping, and fear.

We have discussed the two poisons in previous articles. We have looked into how the ego and “Nabok-Kabok”, poison human beings personally and socially.

We have seen that the most poisonous for an individual is the “ego”, and the most poisonous for a society, a group of people is “nabok-kabok”, or gossiping about each other.

It is the ego that produces the second poison and the last poison called “fear”.

“Nagabete” in Lani language or fear is rooted in the same seed, i.e., ego, self-centered image (an-an). Fear is the root of the poison, whereas the previous poison, “nabok-kabok” is the stem of the poison.

Spiritual and Emotional Fear

There are two types of fear. The most known one is “natural fear” or emotional fear, for example fear of pain, fear of darkness, fear of being interrogated, and finally fear of death.

The second one is spiritual fear, that is the source of fear, fear that has no cause, but it comes from inside a person. The seed of this fear is inside the person, it is not from stimuli outside. It is an egocentric fear, fear related to toe ego of the person, “me”, “I”, “an-an”.

Characteristic of a Fearful Person

  • Egocentric person will be fearful in almost everything and towards almost everyone.
  • The self-image of the egocentric person is reflected from others, not from inside herself/ himself as the inside of the ego is already poisoned by individualistic, self-centered view of the self and of this world.
  • Egocentric person does not trust anyone and even does not trust himself/ herself. There is no trust in the self.
  • Egocentric person will be fearful that nobody will listen to him and that almost everyone is against him.

In summary, the egocentric person will make a lot of noise about something or someone. Egocentric person will see everything and everyone, including himself/ herself as a problem and will bark to everything and everyone.

Exactly like a fearful dog, the fearful person will always make noise, will always find something to talk about, we never want to talk peace.

Fear Factor in Free West Papua Campaign

The first fear that took root inside all Melanesians in New Guinea was that Indonesia is brutal military power, the biggest in Asia, therefore, be careful to think, speak or act against the powerful militaristic nation of Indonesia.

This is shared by all Melanesian leaders, the only exception is Melanesian leaders in Vanuatu and some in West Papua.

The fear of being attacked, or killed planted by Indonesian and Australian secret agents took root and we are not doing things enough to heal from this.

The second fear factor across Melanesian leaders is the “fear of breaking the international laws” by supporting Melansians in West Papua who are suffering from gross and systematic human rights violations since 1 January 1962, when Indonesia militarily invaded Western New Guinea.

The third fear factor among Melanesian leaders is not getting financial support from Indonesia, to those personal leaders. Indonesian diplomacy is famous with double “W”, = Wang – Wanita, i.,e, money and women. Look at those diplomats speaking against Melansian top leaders. Indonesia uses young diplomats, most probably ex-prostitutes, to speak against Melanesian leaders. Look at many Melanesian leaders who used to speak very loudly against human rights violations in West Papua and for self-determination, but only a few years later, or even a few months later, their mouths shut, no more hello Wantok, no more good morning Bro, let alone speaking against Indonesia..

Gen. WPRA A. Tabi: There is No Struggle without Internal Conflict, So Do these 3 Things to Celebrate Life

The only way to end the internal conflict is to “stop from struggle” or the most extreme one is to “end” this life. Death is the beginning of peace, and birth is the beginning of conflict.

I mean conflict in a positive way, the act of balancing, of pulling and pushing, of up and down, of day and night, or male and female, of pros and cons, of sad and happy, and so on.

Gen. Tabi said there should be persons or groups that do not agree and even refuse the existence and activities of the United Liberation Movement for West Papua (ULMWP). We should not consider this as a problem, but we have to treat it as a task of this life to go through.

In other words, Tabi says if there is no dynamic of push – pull, up-down, like-dislike in whatever we do then you need to question “Am I alive? Am I doing something or not doing anything?”

So, he explains, when anyone disagrees with you, the first thing to do is “to thank God!”, for this life that you have does not belong to you, but you are just having this life right now, given by God, and He will take this life away from the body we have right now.

Thank Him for this life! Thank for ULMWP! thank for what we do in this life! Thank for what others are doing to us! Thank for all of it!

Then, the second thing to do is “send petition to God of what is happening right now, why and what you think about it.” If someone wants to attack you, or gossiping about you, or talking good things about you and praise you, then you must do the same thing to both parties, “Thank God and tell God about what is happening”.

Tell him everything and be glad God hears your prayers.

One important thing to remember is that the final decision should come from God. We only send petitions to Him. It is His will that should be and always be done on this life. Acknowledge this Law of Nature, the absolute Truth of God and accept it.

The third thing you should do is “forgive and forget everybody> Forgive and forget those who love, praises you! Forgive and forget those who hate, gossip and threatens you”. You forgive all, and forget all, without sentiments, without discrimination.

Tabi concinues, once you forgive and forget, both the ones that make you proud and happy and those who make you feel sad, unhappy and angry, then you will be become part of the pull-push, drag-push, up-down, bad-god, sad-happy mood and you become free from all, and become still and become pure.

You will not in a mode of fighting against the reality, but rather one of the participants in the pulse. You become yourself, not the self that others said about you or to you, and even not as you think about yourself.

If you try to act against or re-act on the opposite direction, then you are actually creating trouble for yourselves. When you pull something, you must accept that there will be push. At the time you throw a ball up, then you must know that the ball will fall down. When you do good things on this life, you must accept that there will be negative side of it. When you do your best to your people, be sure that there will be people who will not be thankful, but conversely will mock you.

That only thing we can be certain about in this life is that everything is self-balancing, automatically pulses. There is no life without pulsation, the balancing act according to the law of nature, law of life. When there is no one is against you or for you, then you must understand and accept that in fact you are not doing anything at all. There is no life in you! You are dead!

So celebrate life! Life is about struggle, moving, flowing, welcoming and refusing, happy and unhappy, worried and certain, calm and nervous, angry and love, …

Just welcome it! Just accept it. Just smile to it! Just celebrate this life!

This is the voice of the “Revolutionary Army”, that is, the revolution of the way to picture yourself, and the way you picture your world based on your self-image. This is the essence of the West Papua Revolutionary Army)
