Build on the Spark of Divinity in Creation

We have to backtrack on weapons proliferation to fight for peace and rely on the spark of divinity that is the bedrock of the creative process. If humanity goes against what drives creation we will be consigned to the dustbin of history like others before us. We will self-destruct with our present lifestyle, mindset, and that will be poetic justice, unless we heed the writing on the wall.

Divided World

We are at each other’s throats all the time going by news headlines. Is it because we lack the wisdom to balance and align with the creative process that includes the good, the bad, the positive and the negative? Whatever our beliefs are, we try to coexist, at least the vast majority of us, and that applies to all species. Then why should the bad and the negative set our agenda, cloud our thinking, make us look behind us in apprehension all the time? Can they not also be brought on board with positive energy for an inclusive ride? I heard a view that we are here to serve a sentence for our past karma with a life that gives us no respite! We have to fight for peace of mind that proves elusive, and even forage for food every few hours despite the conveniences of a “civilized” world. Our efforts do not translate into world peace, even a semblance of it, to last a while. With the passing of each generation we tend to accumulate the issues that divide us with even countries looking to settle old scores – we do not allow the dead to bury the dead, meaning, leave the past behind as nothing can be done to erase history. There are the few everywhere to stoke the flames of hatred based even on race though for all practical purposes it is one world especially for the ordinary people. I have my folks sporting different nationalities; one cannot have the best of all worlds all the time!

Divinity in all Species

We take few as cantankerous, beyond repair. But scratch the surface, there is a spark of divinity in each one of us, even in the most ferocious of animals; in fact, they live and let live and hunt only to satiate hunger or when felt threatened. I can hear the voice of Steve Irwin, the wildlife conservationist, speaking about the incident that killed him – “mate, it is my mistake; it was I who intruded into the territory of the stingray and it did what comes naturally to it when felt threatened!” Such attitude shows compassion of those who come into contact with all types of creatures that can cause even death. Even then they attack only when provoked, as a last resort, when cornered without a means of escape. That shows there is divinity in them too as they mind their own business, coexist. Of course, come to think of it, even humans kill to eat – an inconvenient truth that we try to sweep under the carpet!

Actions and Consequences

When we talk of world peace most are resigned – it is not going to happen, just forget it! We need all the weapons for defense and even offence. We have to keep fighting for peace with more and more powerful weapons – to keep ahead of the enemies! That ends up as a never ending process towards all out destruction with some having a take to achieve salvation to appear before their God with blood of others in their hands – mission accomplished! Then only the truth will stare at them in a way like pregnancy after some “harmless” fun! Are we ready for the consequences of our actions of killing the innocents like the irresponsible not wanting to face the realities of their actions after the fun! Every action or even inaction of ours has consequences. Even the lions are aware of the risk they take to fill their stomachs but they know they have little choice.

Reality Bites

How to move ahead to higher ground of coexistence other than by eliminating all enemies through mass killing – of course, that proves a momentary Pyrrhic victory as they are a many-headed hydra! The way could be only through building on the divinity in each of us. I have seen rough and tough folks but with hearts that are loving and compassionate, ever ready to help those in need. On the other hand are those who get into wealth pursuit and lose a lot of goodness in them when the race proves overwhelming to stay ahead! All countries and their leaders have soft corners, divinity inside them. It may not be apparent but they will react positively to the right chord, words and approach. After all, no one wants to start the killing machine themselves but when pushed to their limits they can be like a tiger cornered. And when it is started it becomes tough to stop and may require many nuclear bombs now to knock sense into us! And start from Stone Age again!

Wisdom lies in Oneness of Humanity

It is time we all have a change of attitude, heart, to look deep within to realize we are all same. Leaders have to act for their countries but they also have the ability to douse the flames of anger in their people. For that they need the wherewithal of weapons of peace more than those of destruction. With the right approach what applies to one country will suit all others too. Let us not forget it is mostly the circumstances that mold us and when given the right opportunity and mindset we are the same. There is divinity inside us all and that is waiting to manifest itself with the right touch and emotions. Why bottle up the good for the bad to dictate and decide our agenda? We have seen it all and have to be led by what is right to benefit the whole creative process, and take over the role of co-creators. Onward, forward, into higher realms of existence is the way and our attitude decides our altitude without leaving anyone by the wayside, a truly inclusive ride guided by the spark of divinity that we are born with but lying dormant, needlessly suppressed now. Everyone is eager to get into the bandwagon but the fear is of getting rejected. Let the basic truth of creation shine through overriding barriers created by us of religion, race, countries, et al.

It seems like there are two types of people, those that want peace and those that make money from hate and war.

Yes Mark, there is the vast majority like us - 99% - who make our lives worth the while. But the 1% holds the levers of power to suit their agenda especially in poorer countries. They manage to corner the riches of the land, by fair means or foul, and dictate the terms. Even in democracies the boss remains the same all the time!

Now there is an oil war with Saudis slashing prices to drive out competition so that they can exercise their stranglehold, dictate to others, on oil prices. That means almost the entire rest of the world will be beholden to few. When renewable energy takes hold, it can well mean energy will be almost free with the march of technology as nature's law is to give it free without frontiers! siva

I can certainly see where you are coming from here siva, and yet even if we see mankind now as the enemy of the creator, destroying more than what he creates, is this necessarily bad, in a plan that must even include this possibility in it somewhere for it to be all-encompassing. Future generations at least if there are any will learn from our mistakes I hope, and it looks like this will be before we ever do!!

A change of attitude now is all that it takes, as you said, but is it possible now when we have gone so far away from seeing how to do this, or even of wanting to.

Well engineered article here siva, not condemning, just spelling out what is.

Thanks Spirited. Some believe nothing moves without His will - so we are all doing His bidding. However, I take a view, and as some believe God loves us more than others, humans have the role of a co-creator to help the overall process of creation, and are in a way trustee for "lesser" beings. But our lifestyle betrays a total lack of gratitude and regard for others - now it is all out war, exploitation of resources built over billions of years with the rich getting richer at the cost of the poor!

I have to repeat Einstein - "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." My main take is for the 99% to step forward and say - we have had enough and you have had enough; enough of living at our expense as nature is borderless and your rewards cannot limitless. Even the greatest of scientists were not after wealth though their deeds benefited humanity even though few others managed to use the breakthroughs to their advantage.

We have become pessimistic and cynical in our outlook to the extent we think nothing can be done to reverse the process of decay. I feel a shift in consciousness will do the trick so that our "life sentence" here is made a heaven - siva

Thank you Rama-ji for your encouragement for my efforts. I pray that our leaders are imbued with wisdom, compassion and courage to unite for world peace so that coexistence comes naturally to humanity too like for other species. Crocodiles and hippos have no issues as also elephants and ants share the same space. Namaste - siva

Thank you Utah Jay. Despite having an inner awareness of how blessed we are, we prove ungrateful with our actions that revolt against the creative process. Maybe, we have just enough time to change our ways. We should start with disarmament - siva

We are blessed that the majority follow the inner awareness but few take advantage. Sadly, the latter are allowed to dictate our agenda.

Einstein said - The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

Dear Siva, very true that the spark of divinity is in all of us, but the biggest problem is how we can harness this divinity for the sake of world unity and peace. Nations and peoples are at loggerheads because of ego, greed and power-madness. This is the biggest problem man is facing in this unsettled world of disharmony. How can we awaken that spark of divinity for legitimate and humane purposes? This is an insurmountable conundrum! Frankly I don't know how this riddle can be solved! In fact the problem is getting worse by the day!

Thanks dear Subra for your considered take on this issue. We have to see the bigger picture but we are carried away by raw emotions trumping reason. We have to love creation in all its facets - now we are so negative that we are led to hate other gods except our own! This is childish as everything is part of the creative process.

The possibilities are endless but we have to have a shift in consciousness and I do hope it need not wait for another World War for us to understand the basics. Love is so fulfilling and hate is the pits and we should do the right thing. In our world some close an eye on few butchering others till they become the victims!

Our inner divinity has to be awakened through our faith in the oneness of humanity while recognizing the uniqueness in each of us - siva

Thanks for sharing this wonderful article.....you're right when you say all of us have divinity in us. A collective consciousness of this fact can work wonders!

Thanks Ritzwitz, we are from the same source but with different capabilities, passions and thoughts. It is the oneness of creation at work, also the uniqueness in each of us.

If there is only one Creator, why hate and kill another - after all we are from the same source and will return likewise? A realization through collective consciousness should take us away from the present turmoil - siva
