some thoughts about our time

MY THESIS ABOUT OUR WORLD TODAY AND THE UPCOMING CHANGES

I’m convinced, and this is my thesis, that without Immortality and Reincarnation there is no justice on this earth or anywhere else in the universe. All of our deceased loved ones and related leave untold grief and suffering. Lifetime suffered injustice can only be balanced in a next life, therefore I postulate a “Philosophy of Immortality”.

Without the in many places proven fact of reincarnation, and thus the Immortality of the Soul, life would be meaningless and worthless.If we had just this life, in which life takes us by chance in a rich or poor environment free from mental and physical history, it would be pointless to seek justice and purpose. For a life with no return much is inexplicable. Only with a more permanent life school life achievements of prodigies and geniuses can be explained. In a life alone, we could never learn everything.

Religion has the task to connect men with God and to remind him of his immortality. In this task, they must promote the love for all creatures peacefully and harmoniously and undertake political, economic
and scientific cooperation in this matter.

In a world without a creator, a world based on a random basis, there can be no justice. Even on the basis of probability, pure mathematics, this world would have never been able to develop so purposefully and quickly. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of, humans behaves quite intuitive, and regardless of his views and beliefs, as if they were immortal, especially when it comes to there own importance and power. Wills, tombs, inscriptions, monuments and art in general, are evidence of this “understanding of immortality”. in a carefree matter of course we speak of intellectual giants in poetry, music, philosophy and science of “Immortals”.

On the other hand, we experience the rigorous pragmatics of today’s merchant caste of science, religion and politics, which all assessed only from the capitalist profit standpoint, and thus generations after them condemned by their atomic radiation and its toxic waste into the air, land and of living water. To focus on economic grounds to oil and nuclear energy, rather than looking to alternative energy sources in the same mass and to promote, was regarded as reasonable. This, even though we thus decimated flora and fauna to produce solely to individual products in abundance, and market this financially profitable. With regard to our resources has indeed a rethinking taken place, if also in market-based considerations, and that belies the urgency of environmental problems.

Power-oriented and economy-dependent politicians and scientists do not tire of praising us a world in which it does not pay to grow old: a world full of unnecessary technology, waste and ever-increasing threat to life caused by the capitalist mindset of the sales growth and full employment. We might know better:

Since the automation, there is not enough work for full employment of all people. We had time for a more reflective and more fulfilling lifestyle with less consumption and more quality of life.

But the planet is overpopulated and resources are unevenly distributed. Lack of education and poverty, to help our power-hungry politicians to find the necessary soldiers for their wars. The current monetary system with its global dynamics generates even more injustice and violence and brings only a powerful few real benefits, however it still enables to manipulate the population to a great extent. But even this power zone loses influence.

I am therefore convinced for a long time that major changes will occur in the coming years. Currently, the financial crisis is helping with the globalization in the emergence of a new awareness of the relationship between all with everything and thus indirectly promotes a harmonizing unity consciousness.

But even this power zone loses influence.

We are animated by the consumer economy with a sense of lust and esteem, that promotes desires and vices, and seems to get along without morals. Controlled by media dominating leading figures from politics, economy and religion, a highly efficient propaganda successfully manipulates our behaviour. The same forces determine, in its role as a regulatory authority, and defense agency representatives and their submissive role models for us. As the founder and sponsor of universities declare Orthodox Theologians and Church Leaders of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, with religious dogma everything for sin, what their power and dignity could be detrimental, thereby forcing them subordinate priests and teachers (and to a large proportion even the current politicians) to unbelievable contortions of their thinking and feeling.

Similarly, dominant business representatives and politicians act as sponsors of universities, we speak of cooperation and influences on goals and results of the research.

Liberating truth is still suppressed until today, it will be approved by the powerful people of this world only insofar as it supports power or market values. Slowly, however, cracks emerge in this power structure.

Today, virtually in all countries are economic interests and criminal organizations in the background of these policies. As long as we believe in such manipulated doctrines, neither this nor afterlife is desirable, because even in the afterlife, there is no paradise, on the contrary, it threatens eternal damnation and endless purgatory. Of course, no reasonable person wants to be immortal in such a world. We must therefore ask what went wrong in the past two millennia of Christianity, that to date Roman government structures and medieval wage systems dominate all classes of people. The overstatement of profit and efficiency in all spheres of human existence, shows the loss of meaning and dehumanization of our society.

Alternative belief systems, monetary, economic, energy, transport and working models have therefore today only after large catastrophes or inevitable changes their still limited opportunities because of our
dominant capitalistic belief system.
This  capitalistic system will now begins slowly to come to its limits.

Nevertheless, there is now a total planetary binding legal construction, the ethics of human rights, a not to be underestimated instrument of a just world. At the time impact still seems small, for an institution like the one in Rome (in 2003) founded ‘International Court of Justice’ must be constituted first and can only slowly be effective. Today’s real opportunity to accuse of war crimes is in itself a big step to a fairer world.

Modern media promote the formation of a more humane and peaceful coexistence of all Earth citizens. Fast and uncensored data transmission gives also the poorest people from Third World countries the opportunity to participate in all knowledge and all the political and economic details.

The awareness of the global context can produce a new solidarity, and prepare the way for the fact that all human beings are brothers and sisters and to realize it in peaceful coexistence.

I would like to help this solidarity with this website and the Study Program, »Consciousness and Meditation«.
