The Real Revolution.

October 22nd, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

There is much upset in the world. No one trusts anyone else. This is true individually and collectively. Mossad spy on the CIA, the CIA spy on Mossad, both Spy on MI6 and MI6 on them. And we’re all supposed to be friends. The basic problems are that people can lie and people can be selfish.

People are not born to be selfish. This is a cultural artefact of our societies. Other societies are less selfish, more caring and in the past whole cultures were this way.

“Conspiracy theorist” is such a misnomer. The whole history of human politicking is conspiracy.It’s not theory – that is just fact. One side playing off two others or more, each faction hiding it’s hand, secret collaborations between supposed enemies. The history books are full of it.

Now we live in a highly fragmented world. The things we have in common are often suspicion of the other, fear of the other and an unwillingness to be open.

Things have to change. There has too long been an elite that rules and the rest who are ruled. And this is killing our planet, for those who rule can not make decisions that are in the best interests of all – as some of them truly believe they must, and often do not do so as they wish to maintain their class status as rulers.

The real revolution will not come from shouting on sandboxes, joining in rallies or “fighting for freedom and justice”. The real revolution will come from millions of people waking up to reality: to the fact that the elites are merely in place because we believe the lies and shroud of secrecy they pull around themselves as a cloak. Yet this realisation alone is not enough.

The heart of the real revolution lays in many individuals taking a hold of their own lives, looking deeply inside and dealing with the anger in their hearts and hatred. The real revolution is about peace. Inner peace developed through self knowledge leads to wisdom and it leads to manifesting peace around you in your immediate environment.

“We have to fight the elites”, some would say, to remove their power. We don’t have to do this. We have to be aware of  our own perceptual filters and limitations and go beyond them. We have to see they are only in the position they are in because the great mass of humanity has been trained to be stupid and accept the status quo.

Individually, and collectively, as millions wake up and choose not to accept the status quo but quietly go about their business being beacons of inner peace and manifesting that as outer peace and wisdom, then life on this planet will change. Then social conditions will improve.

But you can not fight for your rights, your rights are yours – they come from natures law, not man’s laws. The only thing standing between them and their realisation is a lack of inner peace and wisdom in enough people. For any other solution to this problem leads to division and fighting. Divide and rule is one of the keystones of the way things are. The revolutionary transition to a peaceful world can not come from a game of “them and us” – that is the game the elites like to play.

We have to put down the bat and walk away, and do something useful and wise with our precious time on this earth.
