207 – How do we get back on track?

Monday, October 15th, 2018

The progress we were making early in our evolution towards developing an intellect capable of understanding, not only our relationship with our own selves but our relationship with the Universe from which we are nurtured into Life, was derailed by Greed – unreasonable, unsatisfiable, destructive, and selfish greed for power and material possessions that has thrown us into an environmental crisis of global proportions.

For reasons that elude Reason, as humankind assured its survival when becoming the dominant species on Earth, the pace and essence of trying to understand our self-reflective intellect and our relationship with the Universe from which we are engendered, was somehow trampled by Greed – Contention overruled Nurture.

It so that the great majority of our schools teach children not the arts of Understanding ourselves, but those of Craving.

This is at the root of humankind’s monumental paradox: It has taken us eons of evolutionary time to grow consciously aware of our capacity to reflect upon ourselves and our presence in the world, and yet we allow Greed to kill it.

How do we get back on track? How do we sever ourselves from what clouds our Reason? How?
