41 – Truth is stolen from us, so we can be turned into killing machines.

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau, the sites where madness, horrific efficiency, and appalling cruelty reached some of the highest levels Humanity has experienced in recent History. It made me cry.

How can we be so cruel? When did the human animal turn into the only creature on earth that tortures and slaughters their own with such deliberate cruelty?

And the scary thing is that it continues to happen – look at the siege of Palestinians; the atrocities being perpetrated with our consent; the silent complicity of the churches, synagogues and mosques; the prostituting of Education to turn out promoters of greed, consumerism, and destruction. We are under the domination of a caste of men without morals, without compassion, without a trace of vision other than their own voracious greed and tenacious bent to obliterate the nurturing side of human nature.

Blinded by a terrible ignorance about the fragility of the environment on which our lives depend, these men are destroying our chances for survival by stubbornly re-enforcing a Paradigm that perpetuates the lie that we can ravage the same environment that gives us life without having to face the consequences for our actions. Under their leadership, humankind has turned into a mindless machine on a path to self-destruction.

Yet as much as Knowledge is denied to us to keep us ignorant about our true nature, and as Fear is constantly created to keep us subservient to a destructive Paradigm, the Truth remains that we are intimately interrelated with everything in Nature through the indelible Universal Blueprint from which we unfold:

As everything in Nature:

  • We gather energy sources from our environment to form a cohesive and thoroughly interconnected body.
  • We unfold, step by step, entirely dependent on a balance between the consumption and release of the energy sources that fuel our motion, development, continuity.
  • We are given temporary possession of an utterly unique, self-generating, self-perpetuating body; yet we unfold, if unobstructed by environmental deviations, into a common structural design. We are Unique and
  • We are endowed with a relative degree of freedom to transform and be transformed by the movement of Evolution; we are catalysts for transformation.
  • In equal measure to the significance of our legacy … what we give to the world, what we take away … we become part of the future.

“… he became his admirers.

Now he is scattered among a hundred cities

and wholly given over to unfamiliar affections,

to find his happiness in another kind of wood

and be punished under a foreign code of conscience.

The words of a dead man

are modified in the guts of the living”. *

The beauty of what we truly are is stolen from us to turn us into blind followers of a caste of men without morals, without compassion, and without a trace of vision.

Why can we not see beyond their machinations when what they are hiding from us is the Truth that we are all created with a degree of freedom to transform ourselves and our world?

Share the knowledge.
