What exactly does it mean to be privileged? Some may say it means to be born into a wealthy family, others may say it is consistent exposure to love.
I’ve been thinking that people either wish to do nice things for others, or they do not. If they do, it does not mean the receiver is privileged, it is a simple gifting and receiving.
The gifter is known either as kind-hearted or selfish. If there are no ‘strings’ attached, then kind … if something is expected in return, then that makes it rather selfish … my view.
Too often in this experience we are given things, kindness and space only for the sake of return, which is expected. This is not really kindness, although many will deny that, saying it is too! Truth is, if the receiver decides not to play the game and return favors, the gift is withdrawn.
Is humanity capable of doing good for others without the need for repayment?
I envision a world where people do for each other, out of kindness and not the need to be repayed … but they will also receive, for this is the way society will work, constantly paying it forward. If a person gives to someone, they may not receive from the same person, rather they may receive from another along the line of folks who choose to reciprocate in a system of sharing and caring.
It is when someone decides to keep, to horde the goods that a sense of lack begins. We can see how this very thing is happening today, it has caused severe lack in many areas of this world.
Release ~ it seems that only a few are accustomed to releasing stuff, and the number of folks capable of truly releasing their hearts into love is decreasing. There has been too much damage done … will we ever be able to turn it around?
Privilege. Can it be considered such if benefit comes from one who has taken from many, horded it, and determined a select few who will benefit? I do not think so, for I see it as a benefit from selfish habits and actions, while others suffer. That isn’t privilege, it’s shameful. And it is a trap for anyone who chooses to play the game.
