OUR EDUCATED SOCIETAL APPROACH TO LIFE IS A TOTAL DISORDER
How it has evolved. Used to be a promissory note for gold. Gold was what held the value, the note was invented, for ease of travel, as gold was simply too heavy to carry around upon one’s person.
Then the gold was removed.
Money became unbacked by anything.
Meaning, only a measurement remained. Of what used to be there. But no more. Meaning, a representative of nothing at all. Other than itself, and a comprehensive agreement, it has value. When in fact, it does not. Out with our agreement, that it does. It is a paper and it is a number. A symbol for wealth. With nothing behind it. A wealth, generated in our imagination, and printed out of thin air.
Not a note anymore that one might take to a bank, and request one’s compensatory weight in gold. Now, the note itself becomes the value.
Only it’s not, only it is. It’s a complex story. The evolution of money.
We all want it. Our society runs on it. The highest in our society are those who possess the most of it. The wise do not lead our path, there is no place in the running of our society by the most visibly intelligent, only a position for money, a position, for what mankind, in his deep psychological confusion, values the most. More, than life, love, care, harmony, peace and meaning.
We are drunk on our desire for more paper and more numbers. This is what we call 'success', and a hunger for this success is instilled into every child’s brain during twelve years of mandatory enforced authority led, competitive 'education'. We are programmed to find value and meaning in our lives, only in a sense of 'becoming' and seeking to ever gather more numbers.
Hardly surprising then that the economy becomes higher considered than the life of a child.
Money, is valueless.
It is nothing. A piece of paper or a number, is nothing valuable.
A promise, until the promise becomes broken.
You can’t eat money, can’t drink it, can’t use it to shelter under, can’t clothe in it, it is a number. And numbers are only measurements. Why do we live our lives dominated by pointless measurements? Why do we not just share what people need to what people need and forget all this educated self interested becoming, and the greed which arises from this classroom instilled behaviour?
High levels of measurement offers power in this corrupt, disordered and broken society. Domination over the lives of others. Those who dictate, and those who must toe the line and obey. Those who live as Gods, one in a hundred of us apparently, very poorly named ‘elitists’. Manic mechanical automated machine like gatherers of more than they could ever need in a world of immense suffering and need.
Our ‘success’ is a needle point ever narrowing down to the solitary one who owns most, the peak of a dark shadow casting over a pyramid shape of control and so he who controls and manipulates most, he who sits on the peak of the pyramid and all others, those below, those who serve these Gods of highest numbers. The Gods of pointless measurement between the members of the forgotten human race, forgotten to numbers.
Our bought out governments corrupt themselves, lose their humanity, in the pursuit of higher numbers, our monarchy constantly demands more of the paper and numerical stuff, despite owning uncountable quantities, our CEO's are ever giving themselves million number rises, our pharmaceutical corporations are more interested in billions of numbers than in our health, our scientists sell out to the highest number offered, we have an industry which profits from constant war, generating numbers of immense proportions, we invade and kill millions in other nations, for access to what they have, to turn it into numbers that we want to have more of, even if we already have the most and more than we could ever need.
Could we collectively be more insane?
This is what we call our order! And we wonder why things have turned out bad. We must be insane to live like this.
The deep insanity we face in the world today, the deepest insanity seen in such a long time, is related to this inner educated desire to reach a higher measurement. And I don’t think it can ever heal, other than in stopping it. It needs to end.
Stopping it, is healing it. It can’t be built back better.
How do you build the worst, most stupid approach to life which ever existed back better? How do you turn Beelzebub into a boy scout? Sometimes, you got to just tear something down, tear it down so bad that it can never arise again, understand it’s absolute pointlessness, see the devastation it is causing and start all over again. Let the old way die, for a new way to find it's footing.
Sometimes, the stopping of what is actual, if actual is a demonic and divisive and destructive ground, is a better idea than any ten year plans, seeking their own projected outcome in modified continuity of that which truly - needs to end.
Must, come to end.
The problem with ever seeking 'more', which is the approach to life our society is built upon and the approach we have been brainwashed to automatically follow in life without question, ‘progress’ so called, is that ‘more’ is a destination one can never reach.
There is always more.
Never a ceiling for the man who seeks always to become. There is always more to gather.
Never a moment of fruition, never an arrival, ever another corner to turn, another hill to climb, another goal to score - for there is always more. Then there is more, then some more. More is infinite seeking, infinite gathering, infinite stupidity, to seek more than you could ever need, and deny what is needed, to another, who truly has a need for more. More of a need than any centenary billionaire, who certainly, has more than he will ever need.
And yet we are always seeking more. Regardless how much we have. For these numbers pulled out of thin air, carry a sense of power.
Witness, the source of all corruption of our world.
We have been raised to this idiocy and we have been raised, above all else, to comply to the voice of an authority. Unquestioningly, and without concern for the level of intelligence, (or not) the authority possesses.
Regardless, of how much ‘more’ I already have. I want still more. I don’t want bread and butter; I want to fly to Mars! Some own practically the whole world, and still want more. The King of England owns a full one sixth of the land surface of this planet, but still demands more. Still hungers after more, as if this were the purpose of all our existence. Top and titled, to bottom, and degraded. This is order, to the unquestioning and machine like traditionally minded among us. And that, unfortunately is most of us, this sickness is not only found in the machine like lives of the limited rich, it seeps through the entire consciousness of all of humanity.
Like a big dirty black oil spill corrupting clear and clean living waters.
‘More’, is apparently what we all want. Our God, is more.
Not God, not life, not care, not harmony and meaning, not what these words points to, which is all a pipe dream today, a wish, our God is ‘more’.
We serve ‘more’ every day. We want more money, more wealth, more homes, more cars, more yachts, more planes, more friends, more confidence, more sex, more power, more decadence, more control - more, more, more. We are never fulfilled, we are always seeking, more. More experiences, more ideas, more philanthropy, (with little understanding of the word), more government, more religion, more God, more conflict. More foundations, though less tax. More, death, more suffering, more injury, more irrationality, more madness, more breakdown, more chaos.
More. More more.
When is more enough? Never.
When is more more than enough? Always.
Why are we so pointlessly seeking high measurement, recognition, fame, applause, to be at the top, forever seeking to better what we are? Because, we are acting as machines in the programmed approach to life ingrained into our brains during a highly corrupting 'education'.
Do we seek to fill our lives with the illusion of a number, because we have nothing of any true value in our lives? We live inwardly on words and images. We have no true living ground to our lives. Is this the reason we fill our days and nights in such mechanical accepted societal idiocy? The gathering of more than we need.
Empty hearts with no understanding of life, seeking to find meaning. Finding it in numbers and the corruption of bought out power. The greater the outward show, the higher the numbers, the greater the inward poverty and lack of meaning in life to be found.
And we are led by such people. For we are led, by the highest numbers.
If we are ever seeking to ‘progress’, have we ever stopped to look at what is ‘progressing’? Is it worth continuing? Really? Have you looked? Is this crazed movement which tears our world to pieces and renders our lives intolerable and meaningless, this ever thirsting after ‘more’, is this natural?
Or is this educated into us?
Nature, or nurtured into us all?
Get to the top of the class? Get ‘more’ points. Get more money. More power.
Become. Becoming, denies, being. Seeking into a future, denies awakened living in this present moment. What is more real in life? The concept of a future, or the present material world in front of our senses?
We are in a very difficult situation today, because we need to find societal change, and yet that which most needs change, are the structures we find security living in within life. Anything which divides us is toxic to our lives, because division brings conflict, and conflict brings death and suffering. And our wealth, our education, our religions, our politics and our nations all divide us this day.
Our nations are destructive only in their very presence, because they divide us as human beings. Our religions, the same, political parties, the very same, ideologies, ditto, secret societies, NATO, UN, EU, governments, WEF, WHO, all billionaire foundations, all and every organisation which is divided, fragmented off from our lives, and has its own self-interests central to its continuity, is a source of division, and so a source of conflict to humanity. Our very approach to life at every level is bringing our destruction.
We can see this, right?
What divides humanity comes to conflict us and we all divide, because we all act from thinking, which is limited to the considerations of past experiences, (thinking is knowledge recorded from past limited experiences), and so always acting in ignorance, bringing chaos to our lives. This inner approach to our lives is educated, courtesy in part to the whims of a previous century global 'elitist' - John D. Rockefeller.
We charge bought out politicians with the task of healing our world, yet the same politicians are the very people mainly responsible for destroying our world which needs healing, from their previous selfish led actions. We want leaders, and our leaders break our legs to walk on their promised roads to our own conceptually accepted salvation, which strangely, never arrives. Many of our politician’s live lives of undeserved reward and opulence, while we continue to sleep on streets, and starve, and suffer under their collective ‘governance’.
Self-interested governance, is only a corruption.
Our political bought out minions promise ever a better future, while none ever take steps this day, to bring deliverance from an abysmal suffering present moment for so many. A promise of food in years to come, does nothing to satisfy a hungry belly this day.
There are no numbers to be gained in helping the poor, only in delivering into the hands of the greedy insatiable rich, more of what they do not need. To corrupt our world all the more, that they may gather all the more, which is the last thing they need.
This, is our order.
Now is the only time to judge the efficacy of our system, not in the future. If it is not functioning well now, unless there is a change, (and there can only be change now), life will continue to be the same in our future, because the future, unchanged, is a continuity of what we meet now.
Davos sits in session at great expense every year, claiming to seek to be working towards a more inclusive world. By considering only the opinions of the richest of us, which happens to be their own members, those highest in pointless measurement between human beings on this journey towards the destination of no destination, the journey towards more. Davos is practising exclusivity in its every breath to bring a promised conceptual inclusivity to our world. Anyone else see a blatant contradiction?
Our issue is a complex one, and to understand a complex problem, must you not approach it very simply, knowing nothing about it? It must tell you it’s story, you need only be quiet. As simple or as difficult as this may be.
Our divided organisations, nations, religions, ideologies, wealth, class, politics, charities, foundations, billionaires, royalty, elitists, celebrities, organisations, even the poor downtrodden of people in this world, we are all seeking the same. ‘More’. What is seeking more?
Don’t tell me, can you look? Can you learn? Can you find out?
What is it seeking more? You? What are "you"?
Is this all only an educated program in our brain cells, hijacking our memory, devised and implanted during school years that this was the only acceptable approach to life? Success, is the aim. The bite, the pull, the hunger the trap. Seeking more, into a conceptual future built upon our limited past, divides and isolates us all, and divided people are easy to manipulate and conquer. ‘More’ is a movement in psychological becoming.
Can this educated seeking to become ‘more’ in an imaginary future, stop?
This is an educated and illusory way of living, this present moment, contains all that is real, we meet life here, in completion, not in a concept of a future, written from our past enforced and accepted understandings continuing infinitely, ever seeking a movement of becoming 'more'.
The danger is this.
We are making our own ‘wealth’. A fake wealth, providing a road to power. And the domination of the lives of so many of us, by the lives of the very few. But only because we agree it to be so. It has no validity outside of our agreement. Numbers are numbers, as we are about to find out, the dollar bill is not worth the paper it is printed upon. Homes, food, shelter, clothing, tools and ability to use them, these, are where the real wealth lies in life. And an understanding of life. Not being a machine, ever seeking ‘more’. The greatest of treasures lies in man’s ability to relate freely to another man. Impossible, when we relate through ideas. And becoming, success, self-interest and greed, are all ideological in nature. These all reside in the area of our inner thinking.
Impossible to relate to the life of another, when all we seek is our own self-interest in accumulating valueless numbers in an imaginary projected sense of future conceptual time. Could a man be poorer ever, than owning the entire world, and still never having enough? And being so poor in his outlook, that he is unable to share?
Every deeply selfish billionaire is wasting his life or her life, accumulating a pitiful large number, imagining this is bringing ‘wealth’ to that life. Numbers, have become our wealth. It’s laughable. It’s so childish and so stupid. So unthinking, and so robotic. To live a life gathering what you do not need. Is it the power which is sought after? Is it that accumulating numbers, provides a sense of being more valuable? Giving meaning to an otherwise completely empty life? Is it fear, of being nothing? Is it seeking to find value and meaning in an otherwise valueless and meaningless life?
There is order to this Universe, it could not function otherwise. But us? Humanity? We are finding greatest value printing numbers out of thin air. And fighting over who has the most, and giving the power over the lives of all others to those most inflicted by the very same insanity.
We limit the direction of this flow. All who have a lot, limit the direction of this flow, into their stuffed and overfilled bottomless pockets.
We all want more. None more, than those who have the most.
Even centenary billionaires, are constantly involved in generating more. You see the problem? We are becoming limitless, in our divisions, and so in our limitations. And our lives, are becoming that of a gathering machine. Heartless and soulless.
There is another problem, and it brings a heavy heart to a man’s life. If a man has any sensitivity left in his societally abused life, that is. And we have all, in one way or another, been abused.
This is not a caring world.
We have lost care and love and compassion and empathy. We only care for ourselves and those closest to us in our lives. Those who please us. Those we know. Those of our class. Those of our memory, who we have shared past experiences with. Those of our beliefs, those of our kin and those of our wealth. (Paper and numbers generated out of nothing at all).
We live deeply selfishly, which is another integrated educated competitive conceptual expression, accompanying a scholastically programmed movement of becoming of ever seeking ‘more’.
Why? Is this fun for us all?
I think this should be the first question on the whole consciousness of the whole of mankind from the first moment they awaken every morning for the rest of our lives, as long or as short as that may be until we see the answer.
Why are we living in a pattern of always seeking ‘more’? Even when we have more than we could ever need. We have an unrecognised neurosis among us. "UINEGS" - Unstoppable Insane Never Ending Gathering Sickness.
And this inner movement of constant becoming is dividing us and tearing our world to pieces. Because we are each moving into different conceptual futures.
Oh, and by the way, when you are 'becoming', you have lost your freedom this day, you are occupied, busy conceptually. Committed. The cost of our becoming and seeking future success, is a lifetime lived in psychological slavery to conceptual time, which destroys all relationship.
Just a small point.
Becoming divides us, man against man, sees the most insecure among us seeking to control the lives of others, in a pathetic squabbling for who sits in the golden thrones, and sees those of us who only ever sought to live life peacefully, stood upon by ignorant people living machine life existences, in their hunger for domination over the lives of others and ‘more’, that they may continue to do so. For what exactly, it is difficult to decipher, other than collective insanity.
Of all of us.
Educated, collective, accepted and unquestioned insanity.
Why is the ‘economy’ and not our lives, our primary human consideration? Too sane?
The answer lies surely, in our thinking. The seat of all our divisive knowledge. The root source of our every action in life, is our thinking, and our thinking divides us, and leads us into divisive actions, which come to conflict.
Our self-interest comes from the inner movements of our thinking, and we were trained in what to think, during school mandated years at an impressionable age. Not how to think. The missing ingredient, to a happy life. The understanding of the human psyche.
We have not been trained how to think, because that would have been too dangerous to all traditional ‘order’, seeking continuity of its privileged place in authority, providing ability to continue to own most of the numbers.
And so to sit in societal corridors of power into eternity, owning all, and being very happy.
Our educated societal approach to life, is a total disorder.
You won't end this insanity of ever seeking 'more' in any of the self righteous Davos men and women, this is what provides meaning to their lives. But can you end it in yourself? For unless as a race we come to put down what is a completely false approach to our lives, how will we ever be in a position, to find the true one?
Hello to all, I am a 60 year old man who has spent the best part of his life studying the teachings of J.Krishnamurti. My name is Henryk. I am rather unimportant, although what I talk about on these pages, has great importance. Particularly today, in this dark world, led by men of infinite wealth, unfortunately without the intelligence to match. My work here stands on the shoulders of that of J.Krishnamurti. Without this man's passion and great life understanding, this website would never have existed. His effect on my own life has been immeasurable. A man of infinite vision and wisdom, who spent over 60 years of his life travelling the world and discussing life and societal problems. Krishnamurti passed away in the 1980s. Anyone interested in the nature of discussion in the content of this site, will likely find great interest in the work of Krishnamurti. Hundreds of videos may be found on YouTube. There is a link above dedicated to his work to which new content is planned to be regularly added. The beauty of truth in life, is that it is identical for each one of us. Truth is the place we all come to meet in unity. And truth belongs to no man. Only pointless opinions, divisive, traditional, educated into and gathered by us, may be claimed as ownership. The change in our world so desperately needed this day, is within us, not external to our lives. All man's actions begin in the area of human thinking, it is this needs understood and brought to revolution. Thanks for taking the time to visit, a few posts are being added to the site weekly at the moment, when I find time. If you would like to support the work here, you can do so from the price of a cup of coffee each month, contributors are invited to online discussions. If you would like to contribute, our Patreon page may be found at the following address: www.patreon.com/rainbow_warriors.
