Say religion: say fascism
Karl Marx said : “Religion is the opiate of the masses”–
(Long long ago (In the 1970’s) I wrote a sociology paper on communism.
Unfortunately I am unable to remember all my research and “googling” does not always give accurate information.
I could never understand why Marx was portrayed as some one evil?
Well yes, I can: He was criticizing capitalism.
And advocating sharing
I remember the conclusion of this paper was – that the only time true communism existed was in Israeli Kibbutz: and this is no longer the case.
It appears humans prefer to own rather than share.
When I think about it: we are programmed to compete: therefore we see others as someone we compete against.
We are programmed to buy and own.
If people believe that they will be rewarded in an afterlife or that “god” decreed something – they are not likely to rebel in order to change things:
The kings of old said they ruled by the will of the gods and were descended from same.
Religion was a way to control the masses
Now it is New Age “stuff’
We as humans attribute meaning where there is none!
We do not have some omnipotent being to please or displease Some one who will punish us if we are bad and reward us for being good. I obviously don’t believe in hell! Nor do I believe in karma. (The word actually translates to “work”) If we believe god or karma will change injustice then we wont try to do this ourselves
It was only at the beginning of my 65th year that I admitted to myself that I did not believe in God. I spent the greater part of my life looking for my spiritual home. Wicca suited me because we respect the planet and the earth as our Mother. Well, we did when I first started. Now that it is so popular, I think most “wanna bees” are only interested in spells and being different.
I have been trying to understand the nature of reality since I was seven years old. I have had a few theories since then. In the 1990’s I used the analogy of us living in a virtual reality and of course when “The Matrix” came to the screen so many people recommended it. The Matrix was/is a creatively brilliant movie with subtle satire.
I was in Women’s lib; Animal lib; Greenpeace; Trees for Life– all in an attempt to make this a better world – Women’s lib has gone to the extreme where men now need liberating! The other organisations are run by people trying to be trendy and so bound up with “red tape’ that they make things worse not better.
I am still a vegetarian and still care about all life forms with the exception of crocodiles ( including alligators ) and homosapiens!
I now realize I can only help in the microcosm of my own little home.
Humans use religion to justify not implementing zero population growth. I cannot understand why humans do not see that because there are way too many of us we take the homes and food sources away from other life forms and these other life forms eventually become extinct. Western religion claims to care about animals but supports a meat industry and drug companies that mistreat animals on the excuse that humans are more important.
If we credit some “Being” as having created this reality; this “Being” would have to be a sadistic psychopath. Every creature has to deprive some life form of its existence in order to survive. ( Its called eating) But also just breathing kills other life forms! As we breathe in micro organisms.
I believe everything that exists has a consciousness: And because of my clairvoyant experiences I believe everything survives beyond physical death. Pity: because there are a lot of humans who shouldn’t survive death especially when there is no hell for them to burn in!
Here endeth the lesson.
A SHORT STORY ABOUT HEALING THE BLUE PLANET
I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under the above title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:
(1st published 4th April 2017)
It is now 8 billion.
Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.
I wrote this as social satire and sympathetic magic
I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect
My excuse –I majored in sociology not literature 😛
I wanted to put my idea that humans are not indigenous to the planet
A few lines from this short story:
“Most humans think that those who live in harmony with the environment are primitive and inferior. Actually they don’t think.
They just mindlessly conform to what those in power and their entertainment media tell them.
They are really stupid but consider themselves superior to all other life forms because they talk:
They think if something or someone doesn’t talk they don’t understand.
They thoughtlessly destroy everything. They call some creatures vermin, when humans are the vermin. They kill insects and destroy all the trees despite the fact that insects and trees are essential.
And everything literally goes down the drain polluting the oceans instead of nourishing other life.”
In the following book I hope to help those who wish to develop their clairvoyant abilities.
In “The Clairvoyant Experiences Of A Sceptic” I told a few of my clairvoyant experiences.
Listening to others similar stories made me realize that
it is so much better if you can have these experiences first hand.
Kung fu tz (Confucius) say “Perseverance prospers”
So don’t give up – you will succeed
And use the recorded meditations in my blog
The clairvoyant Experiences of a Sceptic is not a literary masterpiece
but a true story. I majored in sociology not literature
I dont know the meaning of life:
nor understand the nature of reality:
I do know physical death is not the end.
And there are so many amazing stories omitted so as not to break client confidentiality.
The second part I wrote as therapy and had not intended to include.
It wasn’t included in the original l publication
( I started shaking when I tried to write about the abuse so it is badly written and a great deal omitted)
