The healthiest, happiest or the wealthiest people?
Which of these should be guiding other humans, influencing how they lead our lives?
Certainly not the most unhappy and most unhealthy ones of us, yet this is precisely what occurred historically, and why we have the problems we do the world over.
Sure, these miserable unhealthy folk had devised an economic structure, but one that was suffering, with mass widespread poverty. Fear induced creativity – from a place of emotional illness – brought forward the thoughts to steal what was required from others.
“They are so much happier than we are” are references I have, as English invaders first observed native/original Australians, and native tribes people of other countries also. And “how miserable they are except when they drink that fire water” also referenced from the native Aussies observing their pasty English-speaking invaders! 😉
All these sad, ill people wanted was a better life, and here was opportunity to learn, but ‘lost’ and not free to make personal choices but to act under order from others. Others, who may have had pronounced mental illness.
Every argument was made to be able to lawfully steal and kill. Perhaps declaring “they would die out” are “a lesser species” as even further argument for obtaining for themselves, all that was in front of them.
And so the race was on…as the rest of Western Europe with maritime ability, went on its ‘grabbing spree’ like the first day clearance sale of a bargain basement store!
We are still doing things the world over, not from personal decisions and choice, but because it is the way of our country or language, and maybe we have no choice. WE are each doing what we are told for reasons of a better life, and protection of what we know and believe.
Our religious books have kept all of us – without exception – from harmonious living. They all contain both truths and inaccuracies, and require updating.
So much we still do requires healing, then our new improved creativity can be put in place, with good intent for all.
How perfect it is that we have all the knowledge in the world on how to do this, and that solution-seeking creativity is our Human special skill! 🙂
