I received this Email and I sympathize with its cause. But at the same time I do feel that such goody gestures don’t get us any where. usually its only the 0.005 percent of the whole population that actually think in such idealistic birdy nam nam fashion, the rest of the majority. The 99.05 percent basically hate each other and would rather have the other vaporized in a gascious ball of fire.
Basically its a tale of two rascals who in their deepest guts would rather have the other done away with for good – And I think any genuine and authentic engagement can only begin when the two rascals accept that they are basically two rascals who would rather be glad to have the others balls incinerated in sulfuric arch’s of volcanic fire.
Accepting that one is a rascal is the sort of humility that is wanted here. One has to first realize that there is something wrong with us and only through such humility can any real and authentic engagement with the Darkness that we have spawned..initiated.
I was once asked as to what is my response by one Bob regarding London bombing and I am summing up my response (paraphrasing it as a third person report)
“Rajiv says (which is me) at another place in his dialogue with Bob where he tries to get behind Bobs straight and masculine response which asks us to take strong and bold stand/action against Islam in such a way that it will force every Muslim to condemn the terrorist and themselves seek out the culprits and handover the terrorist to the responsible authorities.
He says that the Sep 11 incident and the London Bombing as well as war in the middle east, Iraq has released tremendous resentment that is bound to have global consequences, But thats just one aspect of the picture, on the other side we have two modern Idiots like India and Pakistan exploding nuclear Bombs, Nations trying to model themselves on Developed and developing paradigms, to the continued thinning of Ozone layer to massive consumption of renewable energy to growing poverty and disillusionment in the poor countries who in spite of all the promises keep growing poor[er], to the rise of Aids and other preventive disease all this has made the world a dangerous place to live.
These Dangers according to Rajiv is created by Humans and not some extraterrestrials, God or some Devil, Demon. These are Evil we human have inflicted over our own-selves, the immediate cause may be geopolitical, social and economic but that’s just the surface, there are deeper causes, and these deeper cause lies in the very core of our hearts and minds and that it is here that the fundamental revolution has to occur.
It is the inner life of Wo/man in general that has produced the outer political and economic state in the world and so it is here in the very the inner life of humanity that radical transformation needs to be initiated and worked vigorously.
As I see it, and you are free to agree and disagree, we are entering very troubled times and we has no answers to it., and if religion, spirituality and psychology cannot and would not bring clarity into matters at heart, and our future, and does not equip us with the ability to look at things and issues without self deceit and illusions, it will always ends in self-deception and death of consciousness.“
Ahn..the now the Email. “The Birdy Num num”
I just signed an urgent message calling for unity following the attacks in Mumbai. Read the email below – Thanks
Dear friends across India and the world,
We’re all feeling the shock of the awful attacks in Mumbai. All our hearts go out to the victims and their families.
The attacks were aimed at our people, our prosperity and our peace. But their top target was something else: our unity. If these attacks cause us to turn on each other in hatred and conflict, the terrorists will have won. They know that hatred and chaos feed on division. As radical extremists, their only hope of winning is by turning the rest of us against each other.
Let’s deny them that victory. We’re launching a message to extremists on all sides and all our political leaders, one that will soon be published in newspapers across India and Pakistan. The message is that these tactics have failed, that we’re more united than ever, united in our love and support to each other, determined to work together against terror and call on our leaders to do the same. If millions of people sign it, our message will be unmistakable, click below to sign it and please forward this email widely:
It’s time to speak out, let’s do it together.
