Tears That Nurture New Dawns
Clerical religions seem to be a force in which temporal agendas may be pushed in the name of the Eternal. Political and economic ideologies also assume a place at the table of the Timeless, the very word ideology assumes such discourse to have roots in Plato’s pristine realm of Ideals. How far that pretense has fallen!
A brief verse from the Quran has one scratching their head as to why Christians are being persecuted/slaughtered under an “Islamic” banner. (Disclaimer: Yes, and rather than a Divine judgement in which their Bible proposes, Christians too, are guilty of persecuting in place of their Creator).
“(And remember) when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me, and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will (all) return, and I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ.” (Quran 3:55)
In a world with a burgeoning population, depleting resources and conflicting ideologies (political, economic and spiritual ideologies) what we see is tribalism on steroids, in whose eyes justified pre-emptive defence is utilised until the threat to one’s ideology is removed. This will keep happening until we mature as sentient beings and accept the multiplicity of expression or there is only one ideology, accepted and universal manner of expression… (follow this option to its fullest conclusion in your mind).
Ever since Fire was gifted to man, we have been failing a Luciferic test of ages; as this continues and we harness incredible technologies yet are spiritually and ethically infantile, sooner or later it will be Goodnight Vienna.
But what can I do? I am just the small man.
Yes, you are a cog in the machine, yet without cogs operating as desired, the machine will fail to work. Lasting change will not happen with a generation who will die within the next 20 years. Lasting change is in the hands of our children and their children. The next 10 years in the world are but torment and ashes to the wind; use what time is afforded to you to nurture the leaders of future. Be the beacon through noble thought, word and deed. Ensure a fruitful legacy and prepare the ground today.
