Children are born inherently free to meet life through the senses. Life met this way is the same for every child. Free of the inevitable distortion which educated conceptual language brings to life. Free from viewing the world through eyes of belief, patriotism, political or ideological allegiance, eyes, of division. The mind of mankind is a product of tradition in part and a legacy of a brainwashing education. An 'education' designed for the benefit of the traditional long standing structures of the divisive society the child is born into.
The mind of humanity centres, lives and breathes around an inner conceptual sense of 'self', which is human 'ego', which is a conceptual remembered image of what we are.
This inner scholastic programme runs on an unquestioned background of conceptual values. The value of belonging to a larger divisive group, a nationality, religion, ideology. The value of seeking 'success' which is a continuity and growth of a past remembered into a conceptual future, which is a continuity of that past. All this inner movement, common to all mankind, uniting the human mind in one conceptual movement, is also the root cause of all divisions within humanity and between man and man, nation and nation, religion and religion, one conceptual view against another conceptual view. This inner movement of of words and images and concepts, lives within the memory cells of the human brain and is a constant and continuous movement seeking growth and continuity and above all, a conceptual ideology of 'success', which is to aggressively battle against all other men in an act of self interest, which is a subtle form of violence we endearingly name 'competition'.
This inner movement, this continuity of ever seeking pleasure in possession, in the repetitive sexual act, in isolated accumulation, is the act of inner concentration which denies a child-like awareness to the whole of life.
We narrow interest down to a concept named 'me', represented by the given birth name.
And so, we have come to lose all connection with life as it is, and the present moment and time, which is the only place we can arrive, which is the true lost ground of our battle weary lives, is ignored, in favour of seeking a better 'future'. The future we seek is a concept, which is stored knowledge in the human brain cells, and so our lives value more the conceptual than real, and as each of us carries differing conceptual valued images inwardly, by virtue of the traditional concepts brainwashed into our lives dependant upon the divided piece of ground and it's values and religious ideologies and traditions, we lose all relationship between each other, and we lose all sense of love and care for each other. And we end up in a world such as this we meet today. A monstrous affair, in which thirty six trillion sits in tax havens for the benefit of a few who have most earnestly sold any true relationship to what life is, at the expense of the many, who are billions in number, and whom, among their number, the poorest of children die at the rate of one every five seconds from starvation.
A holocaust in number of little children every year, unseen and uncared for, as each and every human being holds greater interest in their minds and hearts for a conceptual way of living, as a conceptual 'self', isolated, seeking more, blind to the decaying tragedy of the real world before their eyes, yet out of vision, concealed behind walls of words and images ten feet thick.
This 'educated' artificial ingrained approach to life is not without great loss, for all gains in numbers and power and domination over the lives of others. Due to living this way, we live more in a programmed computer like existence. We have lost love and relationship, care, and compassion. In it's place, we have come to value self interest, which is the interest of a conceptual bag of words and images within. We ever seek pleasure, and so we have invited pain, which arises when the pleasure we seek is thwarted, or the pleasure we so desperately hold onto, is taken away or lost.
We have denied our true born free life existence of great mystery and beauty, for a conceptual slavery to the demands of an inner allegiance to an inner recorded authority and a conceptual approach to life rooted into our brains during twelve years of childhood 'education' and enforced memory drills.
This insane way of living, isolated from the lives of others and the Universe which gave birth to us can be ended. But the journey to where and when we are, is not for the faint hearted. It demands that you die to how you live this day, for the false, the conceptual, the illusion, the word, cannot coexist with the supreme majesty of life met unburdened by this inner movement of toil, through the senses and with a completely quiet mind.
The first step is the last step and the first and last step is to come upon the ability to view this complicated inner societal programming in freedom.
