Much needs to change in our world, and while this was clear before Covid-19, the pandemic is highlighting festering issues and creating a space in which to re-access current modes of living. New and just socio-economic and political systems are required together with positive values that encourage the good. Mankind needs to learn to share, to live more simply, to cooperate and to create a world free from conflict, and the planet needs to be allowed to heal. The list is long, but everything is interrelated.
Underlying the various crises facing humanity is a crisis of identity. Identifying almost exclusively with the form (physical body, thoughts and emotions), we believe that we are separate - from one another, the natural world and from that animating force to which we give the highly charged name of ‘God', whatever that may be. The belief in separation is firmly held and is constantly perpetuated by the structures of the day - social, economic, educational, and so on - it conditions relationships, is a source of deep seated psychological conflict and fear and cloaks the truth.
The reality is Oneness; all of life is interconnected, whole. The essential first step in the process of renewal (for us and the planet) is for humanity to see itself as one, and from this realization to design systems and ways of living that cultivate and strengthen the experience of oneness. Humanity is a family, a group, large and diverse, consisting of unique individuals with a variety of gifts and qualities, all sharing the same constitution and inherent nature, and all suffering from the same or similar fears and longings.
Belief in separation has led to the creation of divisive unjust systems and a ‘dog eat dog' mentality, a widespread acceptance that man/woman is inherently selfish, greedy and driven by pleasure. As we transition out of the present dying order and into the new, many people are challenging this false idea and calling for a shift, not only in the modes of living, but in ways of thinking.
Oneness and Fragmentation
One of the most significant characteristics of our times is the polarization between large sections of the population. There is the worldwide movement towards collective action, greater tolerance and cooperation, and, rooted in the past, the converse reaction towards tribal nationalism, the aggrandizement of the Nation and the success of the individual at the expense of the group: Unity or Oneness in opposition to Fragmentation or Separation. On the noisy surface at least, fragmentation is in the ascendancy, and unity, although often warmly refered to, rather like a much-loved eccentric relative, is held within the margins and spoken of in condescending unrealistic terms.
Fragmentation constitutes the normal, if totally unnatural, way of things; it characterizes virtually every aspect of life and describes the state of mind of most, if not all, of us. Where competition exists (and it's hard to find anywhere where it doesn't), where ideology dictates and [Ron: Talmudic materialism and seperatist] nationalism triumphs, fragmentation, like a giant jigsaw puzzle, will be found scattered across the mind and the society, in chaotic, yet familiar disorder.
Motive is also a primary factor in the creation of fragmentation and the belief in separation. Any kind of motive - noble or ignoble - creates fragmentation, and where is there action free from motive? Desire, which sits alongside motive, colors all activity it seems, polluting and corrupting as it passes from one form to another, one discontented agitated mind to the next.
[Ron: I disagree. Motivation is central to spiritual existance. Motives and desires can be positive or negative. Human beings can be motivated to love or hate, or to be indifferent. The Creator is LOVE and to be compatable with creation creatures need to love. But humans have been gifted with free will and so they can choose to love, hate or be indiferent. Those who are not motivated to love cause disharmony, fragmentation, division and dissolution within self and the world. That negative motivation is mistakenly focussed on self to the exclusion of others and everything. THAT is the cause of aggression, misery and dystopia in our world. Arguably it is vital that humans develop the ability to know and love self and others. Jesus the Christ put it this way: 'Love your neighbour (everyone and everything) AS yourself (we need to learn to accept and love ourselves) FOR the love of God (ALL)'.].
Generations have been systematically conditioned into believing that this is the way to live, that we are separate and must compete with one another to survive; that greed, selfishness, social division and tribalism are part of who and what we are as human beings, and that there is no alternative.
[Ron: Actually humans on this planet have been deliberately socially engineered for millennia by satanic forces that have used the progeny of Cain and others to demonically control almost everyone using demonic Talmudic mind control ideas and techniques. That mind control has become almost universal and pervades virtually all religions and all other organs and aspects of human life and culture on this planet. To get some idea of how it has been done and its effects see eg: Judaism and Christianity - Two Thousand Years of Lies - 60 Years of State Terrorism - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Judaism-and-Christianity---Two-Thousand-Years-of-Lies---60-Years-of-State-Terrorism.shtml].
According to the Doctrine of Division it's good to ‘love your country' above all others, flags are saluted, anthems of obedience and loyalty sung, conditioning the mind young and old. To compete to be the best and to overcome your enemies or competitors essential, if we, as separate divided human beings are to survive and prosper, to fulfill our potential.
This fundamentally misguided, and false approach has led to the creation of a deeply divided world, to brittle unkind systems of governance and control that perpetuate violence and social injustice, creating a frightened world community at odds with itself and the natural world, to say nothing of ‘God'. Fragmentation is division and where division prospers so does conflict, internally (psychologically and physiologically) and externally.
From this fractured state of mind decisions flow, personal and collective, political and corporate. The negative results of which we see in our own lives and in our societies; endless wars, needless poverty and acute economic inequality, social division, relationship break down, mental health illnesses, climate change and the widespread collapse of ecosystems, etc., etc. Fragmentation and the fervent belief in separation defies the natural way of things, which, if allowed to flow unimpeded, is ordered and harmonious. It crushes brotherhood, sews mistrust and suspicion of ‘the other', and obstructs totally the experience and realization of our innate self; that essential reality that, beyond the time bound constructs of thought, we all are. That is our true being, and when actions proceed from that unified non-fragmented place harmony ensues.
If we are to move out of the crumbling chaos of the old and create a new and just civilization in which humanity can live peacefully together for the first time in our long and painful history, we must first of all recognize that we are one; that all of life is interconnected, something we know in theory, but disregard in practice.
[Ron: Arguably most people do not know these things in theory or experience them in practice because our religions, governments, educational, science and cultural institutions have been thoroughly falsified and Talmudically infused with false scientific information, histories and teachings; AND deliberatly dumbed down by stupifying factory educational, cultural and media systems.].
The new forms and ways of living that must emerge need to be based on and encourage expressions of brotherhood and compassion. This will establish a living cycle of love; yes, perhaps unsurprisingly it's all about love, and the absence of it. Unity is an expression of love.
[Ron: The inability of this author to even mention the teachings of Christ Jesus in his discussion of these issues highlights the effectiveness of the Talmudists' elimination of knowledge of the real basis of the Christian civilisation from whence we come. Consequently this author talks somewhat vaguely about 'brotherhood', 'compassion' and 'unity'. A moment's reflection should tell anyone raised in the wreckage of Christian civilisation that the basis for 'a living cycle of love' has to be an understanding of the attitude of unconditional love exampled by the life of Jesus the Christ. Unless individuals and communities seek to understand and emulate Jesus' unconditional love in relationships with others, their words about unity and brotherhood become like 'tinkling cymbals and sounding brass'. The Talmudists know this and that is why they have spent the last 2,000 years attempting (and largely succeeding) to erase knowledge of Jesus' existance from human consciousness.].
The creation of a fertile ground in which harmony can come into being is a great deal easier than might be imagined. As humanity collectively demonstrates (excluding the minority) in times of need, underneath the outward shows of cruelty and selfishness, mankind is good; remove the obstacles (fear, desire, competition etc.) to compassion and that unifying force - love, which is our very nature, will naturally and spontaneously express itself. As the shoals of fish swimming in the previously polluted Grande Canal in Venice show, remove the noise and pollution, allow the filth to settle to the depths and the waters become clear by themselves.
