One of my wise and witty Facebook friend, posted: “Sometimes I feel that we are living in the middle ages… Only with suites and IPhones.”
I have to agree with her, with a grin on my face…
We do live in the dark ages, and only are slowly awakening to see the light…
As a society, we are still locked into dark, unenlightened thinking, where those who contemplate the true nature of reality, are considered “fringe”….. while those who pursue business, political and consumer oriented activities and goals, are considered level-headed and down to earth.
We got it all backwards.
It takes no genius to look at our societies and to see why people are rioting, looting and rebelling.
People are unhappy…
They live lives of quiet desperation, until given an opportunity NOT to be so quiet…and then they make their discontent heard.
We live in societies where those who are happy, keep it to themselves, because they do not with to be bragging….
I do not wish to get into the many, many reasons that people are unhappy and discontent.
It is not any different in England, than it is in any other parts of the world…..
Although….. There is an additional element in England to divide people even farther.
It is the class system.
The class system of servants and lords, royalty and the titles bestowed on those close to the royal family, is indeed a feudal social hierarchy, that stands agains basic human equality principles.
No matter how hard you will work, how fine of a person you will become, and how high you will rise in your service to society, you will never be on par with the “elite” of England, that has done nothing but be born into the “right” family.
How foolish and unenlightened it is to continue to support a monarchy in our day and age?…
How foolish it is to keep supporting this inhuman concept, as if it is a “charming harmless tradition”, and not to understand that it is harming indeed… dividing people by classes and degrading to the human spirit.
In places where the class system does not have a long history (that continues into today,) as it is in the UK, a system that condemned people to life long servitude… Of maids, butlers, etc….
People are discontent because they live lives that are devoid of meaning and soul.
Every one of us, has a strong inner notion that we are worthy of more… and just do not get our due recognition, ease, love and blessings in our lives…
It is true that we must bring it into our own lives, and not to hope to get it granted by the government or society, but it is also essential to have equal opportunity to do so.
A life lived here on earth, MUST include a search for meaning, for our true identity, for our connection to one another and to LIFE as a whole.
Without it, the spirit of men will always be restless and lead to discontent.
We have a birthright to equality within all of our societies.
We have a birthright to understand who we truly are and awaken to realize our Divine Powers.
We have a birthright to live happy lives, filled with activities of our own liking.
To educate our kids to grow to be independent thinkers and NOT just to fit into the rotten system so they can advance in their unfulfilling careers…
Titles, social hierarchy, lucrative careers, social status and fame, are all hindrances to your progress to enlightenment.
Seek them not…
And do not honor, envy or crave anything or anyone based on their fame, money or statues.
It will lead you nowhere in a hurry.
Learn to understand that the GREATEST treasure here on earth….is YOU!
