Brain power commensurate with changing the world’s civilizations into a set  of enlightened societies is an inherited birthright. We’re not the perpetual angst and aggression manifested in our endless cycles of “violence and war”.

This addiction and compulsivity to wage war is symptomatic of a diseased mind, poor judgment and virulent emotions. Embracing stress and ignorance as an integral requirement  of reality, provides many with the means to fit in with fellow sufferers and secure some semblance of protection and comfort from the herd.

Refusing to examine the deeper and richer meanings of life, many have resigned themselves to a worthless and empty existence devoid of dreams, potential and principled aspirations. An authentic experience, empowered by attributes associated with Self-Actualized and Self-Realized instruction, were never provided to them. Consciousness expansion and awareness enhancing lessons were not a part of their education. Without a dramatic intervention, incomplete and underdeveloped human beings; behave as such throughout their lives.

Commemorating the purposelessness of it all, many drudge on attempting to distract and numb themselves from their painful realities, by whatever means necessary. Not to worry. At death, they’ll all gather for our “Celebration of the Life that Wasn’t Ceremony”. The illusion must be maintained for future generations.

Conditioned and indoctrinated by systems of education, government, technology and entertainment to believe just about anything; we’ve become acculturated into societies propelled by restlessness, irritability and discontent. As a people, what have we become? It’s difficult to break free from that which we’ve been programmed to become.

We’ve not been groomed to create a world capable of demonstrating love, compassion and kindness to all. Better yet, how about just putting into place some leaders with a modicum of integrity, honesty and incorruptibility.

Brain size and power are not the problems. The manner and methods in which our brains are trained, is the root cause of the unrest and division that exists in our lives and world. Brain training satiated with materialistic drives and desires on how to get more, in the hope of filling the emptiness within,  has been a delusive and dismal failure.

I’m disturbed by a determined and potent force that is unwilling to recognize that our institutions can be governed in a better way. Districts and systems that will not provide  students with a ‘complete curriculum’ capable of significantly increasing their academic achievement and creative genius, while expanding and enriching every child’s intellect, consciousness and awareness; are a lingering malignancy with lethal consequences. Innocent children and their malleable minds, are yearning for nourishment and authentic instruction capable of inspiring and projecting them into the an unrealized infinity, whereby their designs and visionary acumen will bring on an ‘age of enlightenment’. A new way of living, viewing the world, doing business and experiencing oneself.
