Where Do We Go From Here?
What kind of hellish life are we leading? "What do you mean?" you may ask while questioning your own disbelief: "The United States? Are you kidding me? Why we are the greatest nation in the world!"
Yes, we are the champions of standardized hero offerings like McDonald's, Burger King, the Koch Brothers and many, many others who are stifling our freedom, health and well being. In so doing, we are participants of the destruction of our children's intelligence as reflected in the "No Child Left Behind Act" (which is nothing less than standardized corporate brainwashing) while also reestablishing a medieval, feudalistic culture with landowners (i.e., banks) and corporations (e.g., Monsanto, Cargill, etc) running the "Kingdom".
Many have seen this pattern in the United States as one with the Fascists of Germany during WWII. Indeed, there has been some mention of George Bush's father, Prescott, being involved with the Germans during the war.
Indicating a larger pattern, George Bush SR was implicated by researchers who spoke to a more organized plot to kill Kennedy than the lone-wolf patsy, Oswald.
I too wonder about Oswald's murder. What purpose was there behind his execution? Was it the suppression of truth?
In posting these, I'm NOT saying I am 100% convinced of anything. All I'm saying is, "Mm, how does this fit the big pattern?" It's the BIG PATTERN that we need to confront and change. Debating the specifics while revealing the "holographic web" (holographic meaning the part mirrors the whole) is what is imperative.
My question in this article is: "What are we to do about it? Ask the Koch Brothers to stop being sociopathic?" "Oh, just give us our unions and paychecks and we'll be good David, honestly we will!"
No way should we fall to our knees for the sake of a criminal's profit. "No, I am NOT falling to my knees to pray, David!" Hopefully you'll send the same message to the man. I know, I know, the church often sides with David Koch. But, the church is more interested in control and domination and NOT your evolution. The church is simply the policing of David's subjects, i.e., us.
The true message of Wisdom is: "Ego! (our rational minds): Wake up to your depths and stop being a damn fool!"
How many times does one get kicked in the butt before he or she says, "Enough! I am refusing your abuse! I am leaving your backside behind!" Picking up a guitar to play at this point doesn't cut it, unless that guitar is inviting you towards action. (I do want to mention that I think that while the message is passive, it does entice us not to be passive. Otherwise, I would not be writing this article and using the song to support my thesis).
The problem we are questioning is HUGE! It's grounded in at least 6 to 10,000 years of history. This is when the Bible's "Book of Genesis" was written. It very well could be a metaphorical writing about what was going on in the human psyche at that time. It is imperative to remember that the movement was called "The Fall," meaning it was a time of stifling our evolution.
It doesn't matter if you are a theist, atheist or anarchist, which is really a refusal to put one's self into any theological or philosophical coffin. For me, that is the deepest religion in its epistemological form, "religere," which means, "to bind together." When we let go of "philosophy," THEN, says Goethe, "Give them the stone of Sophia (Wisdom) and you'll find philosophy gone, and what's left? The Stone!" becomes reality. The stone is simply our de-conditioned mind. In mystic terms, this IS the virgin birth.
Can you see now why the governments and religious institutions wanted to kill that Child in you and me?
Your reading and my writing IS religion. It is our binding together regardless of our being in agreement or not. Its all play, a back and forth. Yet, that back and forth is our being able to inseminate and become pregnant with a new way of being.
I'm not about to say, "You should follow me." Nor should you follow anyone else. A teacher is one who inseminates your thoughts, not control them.
