Are bureaucrats really destroying the world? Ask this question to a hundred people and you’ll receive just about the same number of dissimilar responses. Various words ranging from Government, Bureaucrat, Democrat, and Republican are sure to be amongst the most popular. It’s quite possible the second most common terms will contain such words as Terrorist, DHS, TSA and we certainly can’t forget the various religions of the world as for sure they’re not going to be far behind. What you won’t hear though is the words WE ARE! We are at fault. Nope that one just isn’t gonna come up in the conversation my friend no matter how true it actually is.
As obvious as it’s played out all through history a correct answer eludes most of us every time. Last I checked we were all born human beings and everything that followed is nothing more than a labeling of one sort or another. The informed person is actually aware of this fact but it’s so difficult to master this form of thinking it still even seems to elude most of them. However there is a key difference with the more informed. The difference is that these people catch themselves, then go back and alter their thought patterns to reconfigure and then reassess with an open mind followed by a new reevaluation.
This is a very difficult configuration to stay on course with WHY? Because this type of thinking doesn’t work in the same on/off light switch mentality that most have become used to. You have to constantly be catching and correcting yourself to master this type of flow as if falls under living in consciousness rather than memorizing something that you’ve read. Secondly it takes time to accomplish.
Perhaps this is why it’s so difficult for highly educated folks to get it. They’re used to studying a specific subject in a book then regurgitating the same processed information in the form of an answer in efforts to acquire the passing grade. It’s all On/Off learning. It produces a diploma but in no way causes one to think in an open minded form of consciousness. No wonder so many feel at some point during their later years of life short changed and unfulfilled. Learning life is not the same as experiencing life.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many of these people in my life and while they may describe it in many different forms they’re actually all saying the same thing. May I suggest to you the following? You’re never going to find yourself without first getting lost. A comfort zone is nothing more than a prison with softer walls… but never the less is still a prison. While you won’t buy back time you will start to feel surer and much less afraid of changes that must occur to carry you onto the next higher plane.
While there are so many reasons why WE ARE the problem for the way the world is I could write a lengthy book about it. However I would like to present an example of how words have been misused thus misunderstood over the past few decades. It’s a very important point as this is in a big way part of why we’re heading in the direction we are.
I’ve had the privilege of actually seeing this with my own eyes and it was nothing short of OUTSTANDING!! Through experience I’ve come to learn that greed is actually a good thing. In fact greed can be great if allowed to be. Read on and I’m sure you’ll see where this leads and fully agree to the above by its ending. It’s an excellent example of how over time we’ve lost what the real meaning of so many words are really about. No wonder why most of us are traveling in circles lost in the abyss.
There are two seas that run in the land of Israel. One of these is fresh and full of fish. Stunning greenery and foliage embellish its shores. Many trees grow deep roots and consume its nourishing waters. Many families have settled there and their children play happily all along its banks. The river Jordon feeds this sea with sparkling clear water and every kind of life is better off because of its existence.
The river Jordon flows on south into a second sea. Here there are no fish living in it, no birds surround this sea because no trees can live on its shores. No child’s laughter can be heard and neither people or animals will drink of its waters.
What makes this vast difference in these seas? Certainly not the river Jordon. It empties the same good water into both. Not the soil in which both lie nor the country as both are the same.
This is the difference. The Sea of Galilee receives but does not keep the Jordon’s water. For every drop that flows into it another drop flows out. The giving and receiving go on in equal measure.
The other sea thinks it’s shrewder, hoarding its income jealously. It will not be tempted into any generous impulse. Every drop it gets it keeps. The Sea of Galilee gives and therefore lives. The other sea cannot sustain life. It is named the Dead Sea. There are two seas in the land of Israel. There are two kinds of people in the world.
Hope you now understand that one cannot give what one does not have. Thus being greedy and acquiring is hence a good thing if it flows through you and passes on to others. What’s happened is the masses having misunderstood the deeper meaning of greed lost the true definition of all of its contents. What they’re actually describing is the meaning of what hoarding is not greed. Hording is for sure a negative trait and the world suffers tremendously because of it.
I’ve linked several interesting articles and a couple of short You Tube’s below. I would suggest that you take the time to review each one as I cherry picked them for their content. Content that I know you’re gonna need. Pay attention to the Expat’s Personal experience.
By vast amounts not understanding such examples I’m fearful many will simply be relocating to another geographic location without actually changing their lives one iota. In order to make changes in your life you have to first make changes in your life. Until next time this is Barry in DR.
