There are those amongst us that will point to some miracle, some wonderful outside force that will bring salvation, that will unite humanity, that will endow special powers, some spiritual and extraordinary godlike presence that will make “it” alright.
Woo-hoo, weird stuff. here comes a “GOD-type-thing” that will cast the demons into utter something or other, that will make it all better.
Like a Saintly Savlon or Momma’s kiss or the “Moon-Power” or aliens or something.
All better now?
Are you being led that way?
Are you being pointed towards an enemy, a race, something to hate and vilify?
For a time there, I believed this stuff myself.
Somebody somewhere greased the wheels of my psyche and caused me to slide, clever bastards.
I hoped for it, wished for it, like some misguided "christian" or "muslim" or whatever, (no capitals here!), awaiting the coming of some lord, some god, someone who wouldn't be afraid and who would cut through the bullshit.
Someone who would lead.
Someone who would bring salvation.
Someone whom it felt right, maybe, to bow down to.
An epitome, a distillation of what we know to be right.
The incubus of a new several millennia of bullshit, no doubt....
It will be offered to humanity and is being offered right now in a variety of shapes yet to coalesce into "The One".
Same old, same old.....
You are no fool.
There are some pretty clever arseholes out there, the same arseholes that sold christianity to the 60’s love freaks of the first century A.D. and the 60‘s love freaks of the anti-Vietnam war movement (you know, today‘s smug property holding ex-hippy pensioners).
The same arseholes that sold Mohammed to the Arabic peoples, the same arseholes that sold Communism to the Russian peasants and Nazism to the Weimar Germans and “Democracy” to the rest of us.
The same arseholes that paid for all of those things, with your “money” (you know, that thing we have been taught we can’t live without.....ahem!.... )
Then I came to realise that if there were such a god-thing it would be a consciousness that was universal, and wouldn't give a damn about prayer or temples or churches or special clothes or weird rituals (chopping the skin off the end of your dick, cows being sacred, women wearing hats but guys not (in “church“), et cetera, et cetera, ad nauseam) but would expect you to have a good life full of fun, would expect you to do no harm, would expect you to understand what was real, what was fundamental to this uniqueness that you experience;
the uniqueness of life in this universe.
Rest assured, you are special because you live and are sentient.
It’s what you do with that uniqueness that counts.
And what are you (or I) doing?
And then I came to the understanding that this consciousness is within all of us, that there is no god but us, that the world is of our making and that everything is our fault.
If things ain’t right, it is because we...
lack the will, lack the courage, lack the organisation and lack the direction to sort things out, make things better, wipe the tears of self pity from our eyes and envision what could be and should be because we have the power, the authority, the common sense and the ability to make a heaven on earth.
We have the numbers.
It’s called a majority.
We allow ourselves to be misdirected and so despoil our host planet because we expect some sort of outside agency to produce, like a magician from a hat, some special power, some special effect that will bring us all together finally at the threshold of success and change the world.
WE have to do it ourselves.
There has been prophecy.
There has been.
Now, it is down to us, alone.
We few 6.5 billion friends, separated by an evil tradition of enmity foisted upon us by those whose interest and survival depends upon that infantile and blatant lie.
We are one.
This is the truth they seek to hide from us and are having great success in doing so..
Beware the pied piper that will lead you from that truth into some new religion, some new artificiality (Green politicos, Global Warming Tax vampires and the rest.)
The next “Jesus”........? Why not? This bullshit worked on the vast majority historically and at the moment, and why fix it if it ain‘t bust?)
There is a world not too far in the future, a world free of hatreds, a world free of pollutions, a world free of the threat of destruction, a world of help and be helped, a world of friendship, a world of love, a world of beauty, a world of health and longevity, a world of wisdom and sagacity, a world of pleasantry, a world of safety and freedom from fear.
It will be the first civilisation.
It’s a world we must make for ourselves.
No help from a “god”.
No planet nearing......
No special alien intervention...
Just us, and the hive-mind of love that we can create......
Momentarily, consider this:
We as a specie manage to house ourselves, feed ourselves, give ourselves health and warmth, entertain one another.
We fall down on this in places.
And yet this should not be so.
Please consider the fact that there are 6.5 billion of us.....
Intelligent, sentient beings connected together in a myriad ways with an enormous resource available to us.......
A resource that our ingenuity and compassion could utilise to create the very heaven on earth that religions promise but never deliver....
There is space and resource for a much greater multitude.....
There is the availability of resource (don’t swallow the lies of the eugenicists that control power, water and food)......
The future rests in our hands.
The provision of health, longevity, happiness, freedom from fear, balance with nature and resource, free energy, an end to war, an end to the stupidity of greed.
No child should die from wickedness, as they do daily.
Their young lives and the hopes of their mothers and fathers squashed beneath the vanity of someone’s nationalism or misplaced fear or bullying jingoism or downright stupid nastiness.
No soul should be driven to evil.
We have that in our power.
That power is Love.
Olive backwards is Evil 0.
An anagram of I Love.
Peace and Love to you.
Don’t worry, you are not alone.
