My view on politics
My views on politics are as follows:
When I was a child I lived in East Germany where the communist party won the elections with an overwhelming majority of 96%, every time! I wanted to be free of that and escaped this miserable place. I learned that in most democratic countries, what is often seen is a left and right wing of the either conservative or democratic houses and congresses, with smaller movements of socialistic, ecologically, religiously, or commercially-thinking (and all sorts of) political parties. In many countries and political systems voting is either viewed as a right or a duty, depending on the laws, and sometimes obligatory, as it was for us in East Germany.
I never voted in my life and there is a good reason for that. I feel that if I would vote I’d agree to accept the political system, which would automatically lead me to giving my power over the freedom of choice away. Why would I choose to give someone else the power to rule over me? I absolutely do NOT want to give my power away for others, sometimes incompetent and corrupt individuals, to decide over my or my fellow earthlings destiny.
Measured on levels of consciousness, we are all connected on deeper levels and when we focus on this connection and take responsibility for our actions, words and thought processes, we’d likely come a lot further and faster than being stuck in rivalries for majority votes, arguing over who’s viewpoints are right, or wrongly judged, while being generally misguided, misled and manipulated into tax-slavery and consumerism. So many people end up to aim for fame and money instead of spiritual illumination and liberation and there is a reason for that other than that they are not ready.
The news channels and newspapers are full of political reviews, views and comments by puppet politicians, when behind the scenes other forces decide what rules to play on. These man-made laws are enforced by law enforcement and when necessary, violently. The unnatural laws are not often in synch with the natural and cosmic principles of nature. As a result of this imbalance our ecological habitat, the Earth, is going increasingly out of balance. The political meme keeps on existing because people generally accept, often blindly with their votes, to live under the rule by … In Germany political parties and agendas are the main topic of daily news reports and tons of money is wasted on this non-sense system that could be either; used in better ways or cut in taxes a lot!
But who decides things if politicians and the political system would be abolished? The people do? The people rarely take the authority to think for themselves. Although, it’s not that easy to rethink life over, to understand what’s real, contemplate the big questions, and come up with the best solutions. It takes time to do all that and it’s a lot easier to vote for groups of populists one easily relates to.
Some time ago (2006) I foresaw an entirely different way on how we can decide over our destiny as a species, as planetary stewards on global proportions. Do we need to buy Earth’s freedom back (land) when it is so very possible to do what we must with the technology we have today? It’s not that difficult to implement intelligent solutions when brilliant minds are at play, but first and foremost we all have to realize what we have been doing and what Socrates and Plato came up with eons ago, is not working any longer. Socrates also believed that democracy without educated masses, educated in a broad sense of being knowledgeable and responsible, would only lead to populism, with the criteria to become an elected leader without competence. This, Plato said, would ultimately lead to the demise of a nation. Don’t we see this in the world today? Why are not the wise leading us? Where are they? Why does it feel like the blind are leading the blind?
In 2015: 13,600,000,000,000 Dollars, that’s 13.6 trillion, have been spent on war, world wide. Only 10% of that annual spending war-budget would deliver clean water, thus permaculture gardens (aka paradise), to everyone on our beautiful Earth! 1% of each EU nation’s GDP pays for the European Union’s politicians and once the UK has left, 2% are necessary! Mr. Trump has politically pushed all NATO nations this week to spend more money on war. Why? Simple! War is profitable, like mining gold and oil in the Amazon rainforest that is destroying the lungs of our Mother Earth, our host planet! Homo sapiens thinks of itself as the superior and most intelligent species on this earth. I agree; superior in stupidity!
Politics urgently needs to be stopped because the logic politicians follow is flawed. Life is not based only on matter and money is not the basis of reality. People are not inherently violent, but when conglomerates always profit from selling weapons to opposing sides, people get hurt. And who gets hurt retaliates. That’s one law of nature; cause and effect, or KARMA! Just like brokers on stock markets or any other markets, weapons producers, big pharma, energy and oil companies, etc. always profit from each sale when the common folk pay the big debts and fines with their livelihoods, and who’s responsible for that? I’d say; lawmakers, aka; the politicians, who make claims to create big changes for the masses when in essence they think for themselves and their monetary agendas that are not always in the best interest of the people. If they were, the people would not be taxed to pay for war as it is the case in the USA, where 50% of all tax money goes to weapons productions and war budgets. Isn’t that insane?
I often have heard people say that they can’t make any changes to the big system, but why vote for such systems? Why vote for exploitation of the masses and profit for a few? Politics is nothing else but a smart front for structuring society with the aim that profit rules. The political system is paving the way for multinational corporations to do havoc on this planet and the majority of the people does not seem to matter or care.
Perhaps all is cosmic (choice) anyways and who chooses is a matter of philosophical debate, but not political! The middle path is what interests me a lot and I choose that. This is my, and anyone else’s, birth right. What Gautama Buddha said a decade and a half ago makes a lot of sense to me, even today. I resonate with words of wisdom like that and systems of teachings that help the individual to evolve and thus transform society into a much more functional way of collaborating peacefully and cohabiting harmoniously.
You can see yourself in the mirror (of life) when you really want to and are ready to look deeply. Then you will see the Buddha nature in you, as it is equally inherent in all of us. Beginning to see that in others helps to recognize who we really are. It brings peace and understanding instead of talking or listening to none-sense (on TV), such as; selling weapons while complaining about refugees from war countries, or asking the majority to give their votes while taxing the masses to oblivion and building walls to keep the poor away from the rich. It’s so obvious to me, isn’t that to you too – my political view? Why buy into politics and give energy to voting for a left or right wing of an evil bird that’s not a bird at all, but a war-plane, a drone with hidden agendas, security cameras and weapons that’s aiming to control the masses.
Don’t we all have to start with us to make those peaceful changes and conscious choices? The outside will automatically change when we have changed, or rather dared to. Dare to change and begin by looking within. The simple tool for that is meditation. Close your eyes and begin to see … the real in you, the real in me. When we understand what’s true, we can not ignore what can not be ignored for ever and in that sense, politics make no sense to me. In fact, I don’t see politics in the future. It has no substances of it’s own. It is part of the grand illusion. When that breaks apart, reality shines underneath in a brilliant light. Nobody cares what to decide then, because it’s already all perfectly aligned and we all can listen to that, with ease. Then we are guided naturally into what we need to do in the moment. And this is LIFE at it’s best, with an enlightened perspective 🙂 SHINE!
You don’t have to follow anyone. Just listen to your heart and cultivate your unique view. You might already know that everyone is already a perfect manifestation of source energy. We can all learn how to tune into our divinity and vibrate at the highest level naturally, especially when we make that our life’s goal in every moment, to enjoy being fully present. When I look inwards, all questions arise and are answered. Tuning into the cosmic frequency, this channel inside myself, makes me act from this place, where love rules (the cosmic kind).
With Love, Omananda
