As Human Beings we are not actually meant to be violent to each other, BECAUSE we have language ability. We speak, there fore we are able to discuss anything, and especially nowadays, when we can literally speak one another’s language or know someone who can. Even in the very rare occasion that we don’t – such as tribes of natural people’s living in the Amazon – we can easily make do, with all that we now know about each other.
Chimpanzees, a close relative also in the Primate family with a reckoned 98% identical genetics to us, require violence. Chimpanzees can be invaded by another group, and nothing short of violence sees that them living through an invasion. They may even kill one another, pulling each other apart with bare hands. They are not able to speak about it. They do not have brains that can allow this.
It makes no sense for human beings to be engaged in activities more suitable for another species entirely. Our brains are the size they are, FOR our language ability, FOR our creation of language that we need to use. It is the very intent at thought that creates for us, the necessary neuron pathway. This is the reason it is the size it is, It is designed to give us adequate ample space for whatever creation, of whatever we will need to say within our lives. We always have the ability to create just the right thing to say for any situation.
I honestly feel comfortable with humans of any language, and I prefer to learn of theirs, or do without a spoken one, rather than use any attempts at English. I do find French to be my natural ‘filler’ language as I learn one, as French is a natural language that can fit with others, English – as it is an intellectual construct rather than a natural language for us – does not fit with others very well at all. Before we shape anything into a word, we use a tone that carries meaning, and we can read faces/expressions/body language. Certainly our language does not separate us at all….more our vocabulary…whatever the language. When I travel, I tend to end up among those who have a similar vocabulary, and therefore a similar sense of priorities and interests. The language difference may make finding these people a little trickier, but difficult and impossible are not the same thing at all..or even anywhere close!
Our Vocabulary = Our Intellectual Reasoning Ability. Imagine all the words you know and can use to speak with, in a bag. Then imagine the size the bag would need to be, taking up space within your head. This, is then what you have available for considering something.
If the bag is little, as it was with my mother – and I use that term in purely a descriptive sense – you have room to consider only the basics, or what is in front of you directly. This smaller size vocabulary is where you will find most root chakra, survival core behaviors of violence, such as gangs, mercenaries, hardcore violence. Basic survival vocabulary.
The larger the vocabulary, the more complicated the reasons for violence need to be, for those humans to bond with it as an idea. They need to be able to make elaborate excuses for such a basic survival core base chakra primitive activity, before it makes any sense to partake in at all. The larger the vocabulary, more complicated ideas, reasons or excuses need to be given to engage people in it, such as is promoted when countries are at war or religions are at war.
Survival of something, is usually required for a reason, and also rewards of payment in some way, albeit a wage, allowance, guaranteed security or ‘career, guaranteed career or allowance for your spouse, guaranteed education for your children, respect, and or honour.
But really, there is nothing our language ability cannot solve. And, if respect is naturally returned to all humans – or naturally reclaimed as we do need to give it away – then what appeal do any of the above have for us?
Warring is just habitual. Warring is just familiarity, and has been going on for so long without reprieve that it is relied on as a mainstay for the economy. These are the reasons it is still occurring. It is a regular habit, and no one has looked at alternatives to this. The English language has relied upon violence – and invasion – in order to spread. The wives of soldiers were commonly teachers to be able to ‘educate’ new British colony people’s, as was the case in my own British family. My very brutal mother, was a soldier and a teacher.
The state of the world and countries as we know it, has formed out of a reliance upon violence, violent invasion. and continual warring. Countries actually engaged in combat are just the tip of the iceberg , or think of the combat as where the waves hit the shore, and the rest of the world is the ocean behind the wave. Many countries also are involved by benefiting in some way perhaps monetarily from supply and involvement. We tend to only hear reports about, or see on T.V the ‘front’, hands on part of it. These people can feel very isolated from the world, as though no one knows or cares.
Many situations we have going on in the world, are from decisions made in haste for assistance with a war. Entire people’s have been uprooted and placed in the lands of others, as an exchange for another countries assistance in a war. Then these people are at war against each other, even to this day! But, it was not even their doing to be moved around like pieces on someone’s game board! They were both equally disrespected historically and I do not consider their issue is with each other at all. Yes I am speaking of Palestine and Israel for this example.
It just comes down to the simple reason that it is habit, and put in place by ignorance. Our ancestors did not know enough about ourselves. Warring and violence established as a way of life by our ignorant ancestors is still at play. Ill-health, misery and poverty were the reasons fear-filled, minimal vocabulary human beings, travelled the world in search of more for themselves. They had no other ideas, of how to better their situation. They were very undeveloped inwardly, as they used all their available creativity on developing inventions. Those of us in hotter countries than England, had greater opportunity for inner or self-development, as conditions were more suitable in a climate sense.
Being cold, and needing to constantly be doing something to keep warm, sparked these of us on, to think of more ways to make things better…more ways to improve a hard gruellling situation. They were desperate, desperately unhappy, and with mentally ill royalty ruling over them!;)
My Aunt has a saying hanging in her kitchen, that I always covered with a kitchen towel when I was there. It read “If you want a helping hand, look at the end of your own arm.” This is still the very real belief underlying much in Britain. It is the most un-community minded, unhelpful ‘culture’ of people I have experienced. They did not ever have, in their entire history, an era of no violence. Countries invaded by Britain, often only needed to become violent in reaction to their experiences of Britain. To ‘out- do the British’ I call it.;) They have within their history, memories and behavioral practices and even entire philosophies, that are peaceful and healthy. Britain does not have this.
My Grandma had a large collection of dolls in National costume from all around the world. It was contained in special cabinets, in pride of place in her living room, and it further sparked my interest in how the history of the world and human development had taken shape. Britain’s National costume was only military uniforms, but the others showed wonderful designs of color and imagination, and definitely, many various roles and pride-filled activities, aside from warring behaviors.
Instead of relying upon them, relying upon English speakers, we need to be helping THEM. Instead of acquiescing to a false ‘better way’, we need to be guiding THEM. Instead of enabling more ignorance to be in place, we need to be knowing of ourselves. Instead of pandering to them, we need to be giving them direction.
It is just way easier to continue as is now with this warring, though it is not sensible, effective, respectful, knowledgeable or kind. It takes courage to break away from what is familiar for us. But this is what we need to do. It is ridiculous that we as a human species are carrying out activities more suitable to chimpanzees and allowing ourselves to decline in ability.
Everyone needs to consider this, as we all affect one another, our energy all overlaps, our activities all have consequence. This just was not known of, or understood when the habit of warring was put in place. It is a bad human habit, that needs to be prevented..like nail biting or like picking your nose. It is beneath us, and it is holding us back from what we actually, really came here on earth to do!
