Welcoming the New Year.....

The dawning of the New Year is a moment when we look forward with hope;
we make resolutions to improve ourselves,
to change those weaknesses that seem to make our lives more difficult than they ought to be,
or to change things that our friends tell us makes us disagreeable to be around.

When we make these resolutions,
we do it in the hope that the problems of the year just ended will dissolve
and that the year ahead will be a period of health and prosperity for our families, friends, and ourselves.

Unfortunately, when we look at the state of the world, there is no real hope that such wishes will come to pass.

Let's face it.
People have been trying to change the world for thousands upon thousands of years.

Doesn't seem to work, does it?

At least not as far as producing any sort of improvement.
Sure, there are those who will say that with electricity life is easier,
with modern medicine we have eradicated many life-threatening diseases,
with automation we are able to produce goods for more and more people,
with modern agriculture we can feed many more people than was possible with the family farm, and with modern communications we are in instant contact with the world.

The problem is,
there are still millions who starve every year, hundreds of thousands who die in hospitals of illnesses contracted in the hospital for some other ailment
or from the drugs meant to cure something else,
millions of people are out of work and can't afford the "good things" in life,
not to mention the billions of people living in poverty in the "undeveloped" world.

So, for those who claim that the world has improved,
it probably means "My life and the life of the people I know is better,"
provided they are living in the Western world.

However in recent years not even this is true for many people.
With each year, things get worse: more and more unemployed, a deteriorating sense of security coupled with a rising sense of fear for the future.

The US is now in Iraq and Afghanistan killing thousands of innocent people in order to impose its rules and to ensure safe conduct for oil. This is being done in the name of the pompous, "we know best" illusion of "democracy."

The two most dangerous countries for the well-being of the entire planet are still holding their titles.
The US remains in the hands of a religious cult.
Israel remains in the hands of a religious cult.

We talk about a lot of things.
For thousands of years men and women have expounded philosophies, religious doctrines, moral codes, laws, rules, and regulations to improve the world,
but none of them have worked.
We are, on the way of this brand year 2005, on the verge of a worldwide holocaust.

We have the weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, to wipe all life off the face of the planet.
As if that were not enough, numerous groups, particularly the Israelis, are working on ethnic specific weapons, that is, biological killers that will strike according to the victim's genetic code.

While this is going on,
Mother Earth appears to be taking things into her own hands.
The human body fights an infection through fever; looks like the planet is trying that on us. Global warming, series of earthquakes ringing the planet like a bell.
In the skies, the sun fired off several geomagnetic storms our way this fall,
and sunspots are way up; so much activity so long after the current solar maximum was due to end is more than odd.

Globally, human values have been replaced by market values, technological values, military values, and material values,
if these terms are not oxymorons.
Not that this is new.

We live in a world of science and religion created by and for anthropoids,
for people who are incapable of having a critical thought, who seek their intellectual nourishment at the breast of Hollywood.

Well, if we can't "change the world," then perhaps we can change ourselves.

Rather than trying to reshape the world into something it is not,
our work is to learn all we can of the lessons this world has to offer.
Having learned these lessons,
we will no longer fit,
we will move on.

By reading the signs of the times,
we can come to the inner conviction that we no longer wish to remain in this mad world of the anthropoid.
Coming to this conviction is not, however, enough.
Once this decision is made, once the fire is lit,
the torch that can lead us to a new world,
it must be maintained and made to burn ever stronger,
with greater and greater heat.

It is the work on the self that stokes the flames,
the desire for contact with your eternal and real self.


The heat burns away the dross that obscures this self.
What is this self?

It is love.


When you touch this love within yourself,
you will know that you have touched the Eternal.
It is there that you will find the faith and hope to go on.
This is not the love that comes from internal chemistry,
the passing flash of the hormones or physical desire.
It is the creative force that lies dormant within each of us,
both the path home as well as the destination.
It is Love:
you, and me,
and the fabric of our existence.

Our distance left to travel is measured in our distance from this flame within ourselves.....

How true,

I will further assume, Most of the human are living in the dream world too, just to figure those values....i think , your matreial value there is also comprised of moral value...no matter we reach the moon, that counts tongue.gif,

The last paragraph is simply admirable, truely some sicks are incapable to keep the standerds of their natural human value but tends towards the unnecessary critical thought. As you said [nourishment at the breast of Hollywood]

As a human being we are not perfect, We have not been provided enough knowledge and information,thus made us human. But the lack of this natural intelligence sometime cause a human to be motivated by over-confidence, that really fails and we remain, informless in the end.

Happy New Year.

M_T,I would like to thank you heartily for writing this great topic.Probably,I would be a person to welcome a new year without any resolution. I had no time to look back at my life,to analyze what I did wrong in the past. Probably,this is the right time to try to improve thyself to become a perfect man.Thanx for opening my eye blink.gif .... smile.gif
