Lately all I see in the world is division. We are divided by our race, by our color, by our religion, by our bank accounts (or lack-there-of), by our language, by how many followers we have on Instagram and Twitter.
. . . Divide and conquer. . .
We are taxing our friends and family. Favors are done for favors, not out of kindness. Altruism has become selfish and giving isn’t free. Everything revolves around power. Power over money, power over others and power over the earth.
. . . Give to the near of kin his due, and also to the needy and the wayfarers . . .
We have become a world of greed. Greed for food, greed for material things, greed for power. We have abandoned our morality, we have abandoned our spirituality, we have abandoned our humanity. To be humane was having or showing compassion or benevolence. We do this no longer. Compassion is attributed to weakness. Strength is the equivalent of power and money.
Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth are now Virtuous. Humility, Kindness, Abstinence, Chastity, Patience, Liberality and Diligence are the new Seven deadly sins. The world is upside down and backward.
The only salvation that we have left is reform. We need to reform the way we think, reform the way we feel, the way we learn, the way we walk and the way we treat each other. Hell is upon us. It is not some faraway place as described in religious books. It is here, on earth and we have made this its home. Evil is not the Devil or Satan or demons, Evil are we who have corrupted everything that is beautiful.
The more things change, the more they get worse. . .
. . . and somethings will never change.
No matter how I see it, no matter how I try, the only solution to all that has gone wrong is for the guardians of this earth to come forth. Come forth and reveal. . .
