21 – It hurts deeply to see the human spirit in chains …

We count on our political, religious, scientific leaders to be intelligent, visionary, rational, caring, true to their promises, so they can lead us into better lives and greater understanding of ourselves and our world. But instead, they betray us, they lie to us, they use the power we have given them to deceive us with the purpose to achieve their own agendas.

Their divisive religious dogmas coerce us into conflict and hate. –  Their dogmatic scientific method limits the avenues of knowledge by restricting inquiry into the spiritual and subjective side of human nature. –  Their unsustainable economic doctrines promote destruction and gluttonous consumption while pushing millions into horrible levels of humiliation, despair, and poverty. –  Their political and economic aims, aided by an unprincipled and gutless corporate media, are to build systems of power to manipulate us into extreme inequality and blind obedience.

And so, we are made afraid to question their intentions, even if their greed is enabling the destruction of our world.

The environment in which our lives depend is being pillaged, species are being decimated at unprecedented rates, innocent people are being killed by the thousands, and the corporate media hides the facts from us so the elite it cowardly serves can continue to profit out of wars and environmental devastation.

But the chains that imprison the human mind are made of old clay, they are brittle and breakable, they are of our own making, and they can be broken.

Imagine our transformation if we were free to demand discussion over the fact that, if we continue obeying the mandates of a narrow-minded, greedy, egotistic and vicious corporate elite, we will overwhelm, and even destroy the environment that gives us life.

Our existence can be immensely significant in the things we accomplish or in the changes we bring about … think about Einstein, Galileo, Rosa Parks, or even Hitler; we see our world differently because of what they did. We do possess the undeniable degree of freedom to affect not only our own development but the development of entire orders of organization. A true sense of Being in a world that sculpts us and can be sculpted by us, is not found in blindly following the dictates of others but following the dictates of our own yearning to create something that opens our minds to the world beyond the limitations of our organic senses, and to the Universe that pre-determines our existence yet sets us free to wonder.

If a neuron in our brain, endowed with the capacity to interconnect and extend the reach of its dendrites, can transform nerve activity into the realization of ideas and concepts, so a human being can transform the selfishness and greed that control our cultures into reverence for the opportunity we are granted to come alive once … this once … pregnant with the potential to make a mark in the world.

 “Help me. You see, we slip back, / without knowing it, from our advance, / into something we didn’t intend; where / we can become caught up, as in a dream, / and where we could die without waking.” Rainer Maria Rilke
