Personal And Global Relationships

The idea that you don’t drop bombs on people you’re trying to become friendly with, needs very little explanation, wouldn’t you agree? As humans, we all live on the same planet in relationship to it, and to each other, therefore, all our issues of importance, become secondary to the single objective of achieving good relations with one another. Once you have achieved good relations with another person or country, you’ll find that most of your issues will become extinct! You may now be thinking that I have the cart before the horse, and that, solving our most prevalent issues is what actually leads to good relationships. That is a natural line of thinking that the world promotes, which defines exactly why we “don’t” have good relationships with one another.

When our global energy, intent and focus, is spread out over a million different issues, the objective of achieving good relationships becomes “subservient to the settling of those same issues,” and as a result, achieving good relationships with each other becomes simply a theoretical dream, that has become globally, very hard to achieve. Alternately, when we all make the idea of achieving good relations with each other, “our primary objective,” then all our major issues become subservient to our main goal of achieving good relations with each other. Now we are in a position where we can can ask ourselves the question, “does bombing this village or town back into the stone-age, support our major goal of achieving good relations with these same people?” When every single political economic, or ecological action we think to undertake, becomes viewed in terms of our single objective of achieving good relations with one another, the actions we ultimately end up taking become beneficial, because we are choosing the highest good for the greatest number of people.

So achieving good relationships with people, comes about as a result of having that goal as your primary objective. The rest has to do with asking the right questions, such as, “will this idea or action take us closer to, or further away from, our major objective of achieving good relationships, on both an individual and global scale?” Currently, you may be thinking that this concept is way too simplistic to be effective, and equally hard to implement. It is a whole lot easier to simply do nothing, and stay within our current system, which has been proven itself over thousands of years to be totally ineffectual! Understand that large power structures have no intent or desire to change the status-quo, and that real change for the better usually starts with some grassroots movement, which over time, has garnered a lot of individual support, and become a force to be reckoned with. The world is a great place in 2016, and it is getting better because of the easy way we’re able to share information with each other. Now is the time to analyze the information we have been fed in the past, to determine if it is still relevant and factual, in the world of tomorrow, that we want to construct.

In conclusion, it is my opinion that world issues are a smokescreen, and a hindrance to the goal of achieving world peace, because of the way they diffuse our focus and energy over a very broad expanse of petty issues of far lesser importance, which are usually based on regional self-interest. Relationships are what life is really all about, and achieving good relationships with one another is what makes life work, and so it should be our first and foremost goal.

Suffering

Suffering. What is it, and what should we do about it, if anything? Should we just concentrate on our own suffering, or concern ourselves with the suffering of others? First, lets consider that people approach this question from all levels of consciousness, from the vibrationally highest to the lowest. Therefore, while the question may be consistent, the people who are asking the question, are not. Because people are both the same, and different, how does that impact the answer? Suffering is both physical and mental anguish. The physical suffering is self-explanatory. You stub your toe and it hurts, plain and simple. Mental anguish, or mental suffering is something different. You get asparagus for supper and it nauseates you, however, your mother makes you eat it regardless, and you feel like you are going to hurl with every bite. Meanwhile, your older brother is wolfing it down like there is no tomorrow, and he is starting to eyeball your portion, and making signs that you should put yours on his plate when mom isn’t looking. How can two people experience two opposite reactions to the same phenomenon?

This last question in itself, tells you that much of the suffering in life is based on a personal belief about what is joyful and what is not. You do not experience joy, because something is intrinsically joyful. You experience something, and then label that experience as being joyful, and from that point forward, you have now developed a bias toward that experience, which will taint all future similar experiences. Now in addition to this, we should add that while nothing is intrinsically joyful, things are experienced as vibrational realities, and these are not open to speculation of any kind, therefore, the higher the vibrational reality you are experiencing, the more likely you are to label it as being joyful.

Should we help those who are suffering? Well my answer would be yes and no. If you believe that there are experiences on the Earth plain that people should never have to go through, in this or any other life time, then I guess the answer for you would be yes, because of your beliefs. If you believe that everyone on Earth is here primarily for their own development, and that all experience leads to more a complete, and expanded consciousness development, then the answer for you would be no. Additionally, if you consider that the vibrationally highest response to every situation, is the most loving response, then some of you will interpret the act of alleviating suffering as being loving. Other people may interpret the act of allowing people to experience, what they need to experience in order to facilitate the expansion of their consciousness, as being a loving act.

On Earth, as well as in other realms, we have both individual and collective experiences and agendas. Therefore, all questions always have to be looked at and answered in light of those two realities. One could even say that there is an answer for the individual which is the little picture, as well as one for the collective, which represents the bigger picture. They could be the same or they could be different depending on the question. So, while we have touched on some highlights surrounding the topic of suffering, there are still some questions which remain unanswered for some people. We have however, given plenty of food for thought about the topic of suffering, and I hope this has widened your perspective on the matter.
