School children all take the same aptitude tests and are scored on their ability of comprehension, never once being coached, or inspired to be their true selves, having their natural talents nurtured.
Same with the law … those that were young and careless having committed minor offense, hurting no one, are lumped in the same group as those who viscously create harm and havoc in the world, prevented from living freely even after decades of proving their great and powerful contributions of good.
These things we do … or lack to do … follow us throughout our days, ALL the way to the end of life.
In today’s world I look around and shake my head, feeling sorrow as I see an incredible lack of care, in the instantaneous self righteous judgements, and of the stifling of creative force in the youth.
Those without benefits are shunned and omitted from opportunity, which in turn causes anger, outrage even, for those with better support systems get the benefit while they without eat the crud left behind, struggling to survive, sometime barely holding onto their sanity in an extremely chaotic world.
There is no balance. Judgements made are not well thought out and considered. Focus has been, and increasingly so, on self … the normal response from so many is, “screw you and the horse you rode in on”, not even noticing that those they judge cannot even afford the invisible horse they imagine they see them riding.
Once again it is the need for power, the need of feeling important and authoritative which rules minds. No longer is there wise determination, well thought out understanding and solution. Power to hold the reigns of another’s life in ones hands and determine their ability to contribute is tempting to those who have been given the right.
Fear of the loss of this imaginary power drives lives … and eventually it will be recognized as the illusion it is. They will understand that their strength is actually weakness, and those they deem weak are actually very strong, having weathered mighty storms.
We’re coming full circle, the cycle is near complete. There will be a return to the path of true care and compassion … for each other, for the earth, water, and air … for self. What we have known for so long, that which has birthed error and lack, will be left behind.
A new day is dawning, and all people will be recognized for the value they bring to the table. All people will be honored for their contributions, large and small. No one will be deemed greater than, or less than, any other.
Count on it.
