51 – Imagine Knowing …

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

We are taught that War is a Necessity, that there will always be enemies (even if we have to create them).

Imagine knowing that this is a lie.

What we are not taught is that War is one of the most profitable businesses in the world and the reason why, even with no evidence of an enemy, it is constantly financed and provoked. War, instigated to satisfy unconscionable greed, kills the innocent by the thousands and thousands. This is an atrocity.

We are taught that Religion is Salvation, that there is no Heaven without it (even if we have to create it).

Imagine knowing that this is a farce.

What we are not taught is that organized Religion is one of the most powerful forms of control by deception. Religions lie to their followers to keep them under their spell; they incite division, fear, and intolerance without a hint of apprehension for the horrendous consequences of their actions.

Under the focus of our current scientific methodology on Reductionism we cannot comprehend what 90% of our Universe is, nor fathom how the Human body can turn energy sources into the phenomenon of the self-reflective mind, yet we are taught that this is the only way to understand Reality.

Imagine knowing that this is an error.

What we are not taught is that this limiting methodology is re-enforced and vehemently defended because it gives most scientists a false sense of control over Nature, because it nicely fits their equations, and because it remunerates them handsomely.

So if Politics, organized Religions, and Science deceive us, where do we go for Truth?

The Truth is that YOU are the most amazing Natural Living System we know of in our Universe. And overcoming the indoctrination of organized religions, the control of warmongering political doctrines, and the limitations of our current scientific methodology, this Truth will open your mind to the wisdom that, as all living systems, the Human body evolves through more or less universal stages (conception, infancy, youth, adulthood, maturity) into a design that abides by environmental rules – no more cells than needed to proceed healthily from one stage into another, no unchecked growth without distressing the continued existence of the body, no stability without equilibrium between our intake and release of energy sources.

The Human species unfolds through more of less the same stages as the Human body. We are struggling to advance into the next stage in our development, but our exponential growth and unsustainable level of consumption are out of balance with the environment, and as a species we don’t know how to re-value and re-balance ourselves even if our bodies have been doing it for millennia.

Imagine Knowing what we are not even allowed to consider: That in our own bodies we have the Knowledge to re-value and re-balance our relationship with our environment.

Imagine Knowing.

50 – On Evolution (Part II) …

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

It is incredible to realize our capacity to understand complex issues – to have deciphered the code of the DNA Helix, to have figured out the exact distance to Saturn so we can send little cameras to settle into stationary orbits and send us back images of the planet, to have figured out that our Solar System is a tiny element in one of the arms of an immense Galaxy, to have opened windows to the world in little screens we can hold in the palm of our hands – and yet we do not question the blatant lies of politicians and religious leaders.

Why?

Their lying is oftentimes so outlandish that it would be laughable if it was not murderous. They lie to keep us on a destructive path to serve their insatiable greed completely disregarding the horrible consequences of their obscene egotism: War, Siege, Genocide, Divisiveness, Ignorance, Hate, Poverty, Cruelty, Rape, Starvation.

They use the colossal force of our hope to deceive us and manipulate us into conformity. They obscure their contempt for us and for the natural world behind promises they never plan to honor. Their horrific crimes are absolved by their exclusive “elitist” rights. They aim to obliterate Knowledge and Reason by bending the young mind into blind obedience.

But the force of our evolution is bigger and wiser than they are. Although the control of current religious and political doctrines has lasted for many centuries, new technologies are awakening in us the awareness of our capacities to effect change in a world without their greed. They have the weapons and the wealth to try to control us and infiltrate our endeavor to obtain Freedom and Fairness, but we have the power of our sheer numbers – billions of us – and non-violence terrifies them.

Evolution, as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary is: 1 – the process by which different kinds of living organisms develop from earlier forms, 2 – gradual development.

Evolution is movement, and movement is change. Nothing is static in Nature. We are evolving into more interconnected and informed Human beings. This liberating force of our evolution in knowledge and technology threatens religious and political power, and this is why they try to restrain it.

Evolution is a primordial force that takes us through gradual and learning processes into greater levels of complexity and order. Natural systems (our bodies, our species, our planetary system, our galaxy) evolve from creation to dissipation in stages of escalating events. But natural systems are vulnerable to the challenges of external and internal fluctuations; if the system is able to overcome the challenge, it then re-structures itself into a new and usually greater stage of complexity. But if it doesn’t, the system goes into a crisis that may lead to its disappearance. Challenges are the fuel of Evolution. They create instability and prod the system to find novel ways to adapt. Systems are forced, either instinctively or by its own determination, to re-evaluate, to re-consider its development, to transform.

We are entering such a challenging crisis in our evolution: We have grown to unsustainable numbers and are overwhelming the environment in which our lives totally depend. But instead of addressing the urgency of the crisis, the individuals making the decisions for us, are intensifying it by perpetuating the disastrous recipe of unbounded consumerism and perpetual growth.

I believe that for us to overcome this crisis and step up to the next level in our evolution, our challenge is to overcome this primitive, deceitful, destructive and cruel World Order, and enter a New Order based on peace, equilibrium between growth and natural resources, freedom of religion without the incitement of division, and advances in education, technology and health available to every child in the world.

We are not helpless – we are pure Potential.
