With the deafening sound of thunder and the blinding light of lightning brought in fear of the unknown. This has infiltrated within us the fear of a higher power and the belief in its very existence. Over many centuries this belief over the existence of this dark force prevailed and have survived to this day. Today this seems to have become a massive business Empire supporting many lives and their livelihoods under the name of religion. To top it off many crimes against Humanity and against Humans are done under the cover of religion. We hear of this each and every single day in the news. Man is one and the creator is one so why are there so many religions? Because today we can have one religion and tomorrow someone can start another one. At the end of the day it is BIG business and there is money tied to it with stakes getting higher and higher each day, with each religion competing for economic dominance and power. Each of which is a business Empire designed to capture it own market share. The more members or followers they have, the more influx of money it makes and holds.
We are what we eat. Junk in ? Guess what happens. We are paying for real food but what are we getting in return? Food and water are very sacred to our bodies. Moreover our individual bodies are much more sacred to each of us.Without considering so we cannot exist. So why are we dehumanizing our bodies by eating tainted food and drinks? Bottled drinks and processed foods bring in billions of dollars to companies each day. But it is our body that is taking its toll on its consumption. Our body does not tell us, but it is suffering in silence. When something has to give, it takes upon itself all the diseases that we have invited in. In the end we lose. So what we eat matters. We have a decision to make here, to eat healthy or to each junk. Each come with its own ramifications.
Today we hardly see our neighbors, let alone know them. Time to use bartering in to get our old ways of socializing and connecting back. Today each of us are confining ourselves to our homes and locking ourselves in. Where the air is stale and with each member locking themselves in each of their rooms with their own entertainment centers and TV’s, we hardly get to talk to each other and to breathe some fresh air by going outside and soaking up some Sun. No wonder most of us are suffering from Vitamin D deficiency and other related ailments. Exercise is non existent. Face to face communication is non existent. Written scripts are fading out fast. Mutual Respect has become extinct. Consumption of junk food plentiful. Of real food, this does not exist. 90 % of any supermarket has junk or processed food within it, the rest is filled with so called fresh produce and just 1% is supposedly real food labelled Organic. Why is real food 3 times the cost where as artificial junk is very very cheap and is packaged for the masses? No wonder we have all sorts of diseases popping up that come in with strange names. Obesity has become a global epidemic.
Animals are in a way predictable. We know that the big cats, elephants, rhinos and hippos do attack to defend their territory, their mates and their families. But Humans seems to be the most dangerous species because THEY are completely unpredictable. Any News that we hear in all News channels all over the World can attest to that. These do make BIG waves which do ripple outward affecting families and society in general. Crime seems to pay and honesty seems to be hiding in the closet. This is whom we have become. We are an unique species put on this planet to do amazing things by creating and sharing. We have the power to do much more. We have billions of dollars set aside in defense budgets but none for peace. There is no money in peace but there is in war. We have been doing this to ourselves for centuries and it seems that we are for sure heading in the wrong direction to our own self extinction.
Lets take USA for example and use it for illustration purposes. This country has say 310 million citizens. If each of the citizens are given $1 million tax free ONE TIME ONLY by it’s government, that sums up to $310 million dollars. This is a drop in the bucket. Most people can live off this and fend for themselves throughout their lives. Meanwhile they can still continue working as they have always been, but the major difference here is that they will be working as productive citizens WITHOUT THE FINANCIAL STRESS of struggling to pay bills and juggling their daily chores. Any new immigrant who becomes a citizen is given the same $1 Million with the added condition to work and contribute to society. Any child born is also given that same privilege at birth, but that child or anyone related cannot touch than money until that child is 24 years of age where maturity sets in. This might be a simple solution that may help mankind get back on their feet and live life instead of chasing money all their lives, WITHOUT EVEN really living LIFE.
The key here is educating ourselves and educating others of what we know by pure sharing of knowledge. It does not cost us a thing. Sharing knowledge is also sheer happiness. We are wired and designed to give and not to take. It brings in the happiness of sharing something which we know with others. Also knowing that it has benefited someone somewhere is priceless. Many have taken whatever knowledge they have accumulated over their entire lifetime to their graves without ever sharing it with anyone. So it has become a dead end in this instance. But had that person shared that knowledge with many people, each of them could have made a massive difference in the lives of many. So sharing does go a long way to the recipient than the giver. To the giver he or she has just handed over the baton to the next person. Remember we are just RENTERS of this beautiful planet. Once we are gone, we are gone for ever back to Earth. By doing so, We have just got ourselves recycled. We come in naked and leave the same way out with nothing in hand. Our life on this Planet lasts only milliseconds in Geological time line but for us it is in fact our entire lifetime. No wonder it is called LIFE TIME. We would understand it much better by dissecting our individual lives and our time on this beautiful blue marble floating freely in the dark black infinite space.
Decluttering our lives will do us good and make us feel much better than any material possession. It also simplifies our lives. Minimalism and veganism are two faces of the same puzzle. Both go hand in hand. Back then we were required to hunt and kill animals for food to ensure the survival of us and our families. Today there is no need to do so because we do get all the same nutrients from fresh vegetable and fruits that we are supposedly getting from eating meat. Marketing is big mind changer and advertising has done an excellent job in marketing meat and dairy products thereby bringing in animal cruelty and death to many animals through slaughter. It’s also what we are being told that makes up our own mindset. But we are intelligent individuals capable of making intelligent choices which are good for us and not following upon being conditioned by someone somewhere who is calling the shots. It is our live and we need to have control over it. If we give up control over ourselves someone will gladly take over the spot and control us and our lives. We need to start looking outside the box in all facets of our lives.
Looking at the recent past many people got burnt and ended up in bankruptcy for no other fault of theirs other than being ignorant. In the feeding frenzy that preceded this, anyone and everyone had jumped on the bandwagon to grab the money that was in fact up for grabs. When the dust settled, the major players had taken off with the loot smiling all the way to the bank. Meanwhile the ones who remained went under one by one and started sinking until it had reached epidemic proportions disrupting the entire financial system leading to its collapse. The people who had made it big may have really made it big to last several generations and the poor who believed in creating their dream had their dreams shattered even before it got a chance to rise. This is the power of being financially illiterate and guess who pays the ultimate price of financial ruin. This title is also been given to a financially illiterate individual.
We also have a remote control for everything that we do these days. We do not even have to get out of the car to open the gates or the garage door to enter our home. The remote does it for us. Same goes with our smartphones. These days we can open or close our doors, switch on or off a fan, an air conditioner control the temperature of our homes, the sprinkler system, all can be controlled right from our smart phone which is remotely controlling all aspects of our home and business life. We can even answer the door of our house from halfway across the World from another continent and even see who is at the door and talk to them. Security system can also be interfaced with many other features including motion sensors, facial recognition, heat signature and what not.
Without our teeth and their supporting structure we will be unable to move through life without effective and efficient masticatory power. Imagine that a lion gets injured in the serengeti. A lion can only survive if it stays and remains healthy. Now if this lion gets injured in a fight and has a fractured jaw, it will become incapacitated and be unable to hunt and eat for itself. Other animals do have the capacity to sense when an animal becomes weak or sick. Now even the king of the jungle becomes prey. Hence jaw and muscle power do play out very much in our survival as it does in the lives of all animals that we see around us.
