We live on a single, solitary planet and yet so many different universes exist here. Some of us live in glistening palaces with servants, experience extravagant travel every day and every conceivable luxury. Some of us live in high rise apartment blocks and work all the hours god sends though we never have a penny to our name. Some of us live on the streets and know only cold and hunger. Some of us live in nice homes and although we will never be wealthy, we are still able to afford the odd luxury trip and sleep in a comfortable, warm bed… Some of us are home makers, some of us are missionaries, some of us are priests, bankers, princes and shop assistants…and all the billions of variations that exist in between…
Each of us has a completely different existence to the next person and no matter how poor we feel we are… there are always millions of people on the planet who experience far worse realities than ourselves every day. There is such a large divide between the richest of our population and the very poorest. There is even a vast divide between the poor and the poorest. It is amazing that so many different kinds of experience exist on one planet but it is also heart breaking and sad that the nicer realities exist at the expense of most of the more terrible realities.
We have created a world where we are expected to clamber over each other to get to the top of the human pile. We are pitted against one another for our very survival. For one of us to succeed, another must fail. It is the human ‘race’ after all.
There is only one way that all of the suffering can end. One way that the world can begin to heal and repair. There is only one way which will see us all survive. I groan inwardly at this point in my post as I know that no one wants to hear this… It is depressing and inconvenient… so my apologies in advance, but it still needs to be said.
Our world is in a free-fall right now. We can no longer fight against each other for survival. Only together, do we have any hope of surviving what is to come in the next twenty years. Trust me, if you think things are bad now… you haven’t seen anything yet.
I’ve spoken about this before. It is a subject that is never acknowledged.
The only way we survive what is about to happen…is already happening… is if we begin the process of unification
We cannot continue as we are. Our world must shift in attitude and in reality.
We can no longer be a world full of countries with their own agenda’s. We cannot see each other as ‘others’ anymore.
What I am asking requires a huge shift in the consciousness of this planet. It requires sacrifice and compassion and faith.
Let me explain this another way…
If I was to offer you a choice today…. We can save the planet and most of the people on it. We can save our species and our children’s future. All you have to do is be prepared to give up your current reality and exist in one which may see you having slightly less in some ways, than you currently do…
…Less designer clothing (Do you really need them to live anyway?)
…Less – in terms of an abundance of food (how much do you currently waste each week in any case?)
…Less in terms of eating out – food is no longer an item that can be used for fun (it won’t do your waist any harm, will it?)
To mention but a few…but there is also:
…less guilt and sadness as you enjoy a relatively luxury existence while others suffer and die in poverty and strife…
Less stress as you spend all of your life working…
More… family time…
More friends…. more love, more laughter and true interaction with others.
More appreciation of nature and beauty…
More understanding of nature and the universe and ourselves as you have more time to think.
More in terms of quality of life though you may not see how right now.
More time for creativity.
We have a vast abundance of financial resources…food resources…material resources.
We have scientists who cannot currently fix problems since their employers are preventing them from doing so as it keeps their current product prices high. We have advanced technology which is being repressed for similar reasons…
Our world is backside-foremost.
Let’s try and spell this out again…
We need to become a singular, unified planet
We need a singular (modestly paid) government whose sole purpose is to utilise our resources in a balanced fair way without any thoughts of capitalism getting in the way. Everything on this planet belongs to every one of its citizen’s. No one person should be able to acquire abundance above the general level of the other people on the planet. No one person is more important than any other person.
Just because we are born on one land mass, does not mean we have the right to claim it as our own to the exclusion of others…nor do any other landmasses have the right to prevent us from living there because we were not born in that place. We own nothing here. Nothing can come with us and nothing is truly ever ours.
Until the term ‘country’ ceases to exist as a meaning of separate entity….and a singular government is placed in charge of our planet with the sole aim of legislating and managing our global resources for the good of all… we are all utterly screwed (putting it bluntly).
A lot of land masses who are too interested in working on behalf of their own populations can never work effectively to tackle the global problems that exist in our world. Why should they? They are not their problems. It is not those people who get them elected to their nice highly paid jobs.
I don’t comment on current affairs usually. I simply sit and fume as I know my opinions have no weight anywhere and no one listens to anything I have to say. I sprout a very inconvenient truth… and I know that even those who may agree with all of this will come up with an abundance of reasons why it could never happen. That is just a convenient reality.
We have the ability to fix most of the problems that exist on our planet if only we could grow up as a race and evolve.
Capitalism has been in control of our realities and our minds for a very long time. It is about to drive us all into extinction… sadly it already is.
The monopoly game is over…will someone please throw the goddam board off the table!
The sad truth is… that no one will even consider this option until it is far too late to change the path we are on. We never learn…we go through this every time. This is not the first lifetime I have given you all this same lecture…and it won’t be the last time that you don’t bother to listen to me.
I know I will be long gone before anyone even thinks this may be a good idea. I usually am…
I just thought that for once I would talk about my views on things going on in the unreal world instead of the real one… (sorry this world is the unreal world to me lol).
Have a good day people… many, many others are paying for it… so you may as well enjoy it.
