Today I want to share an excerpt that I have taken from a book I am currently in the process of reading called “conversation with God” by author Neale Donald Walsh. The reason why I want to share an excerpt from the book, is because that it relates to the “destonian process” that I am currently undertaking, called “the 7 years to life process”. Now, whether this “destonian process” has been proven effective or not is still up to me to decide and realise, as I am currently in my 3rd month of practicing this alleged process on a constant basis. One thing that the “destonian process” purports is that the system we are currently in will eventually be changed in order to support all life forms on this planet – through a system that they have dubbed “equal money system”.
So, with that in mind, I have come to stumble upon an excerpt from the book that I am currently reading which parallels what the destonian are suggesting. Since it was so eloquently presented within the “conversations with god” book, I decided to share it here, so that my readers may know that a new system which honours life can be possible if we but collectively decide to change the current one.
What follows is taken from the pages 228 to 230 from the book “conversations with god, book 3”. To place into perspective, the author of the book asked “God” why we haven’t made progress as a society towards a better quality of life for all living beings. This is what “God” answered (in italics):
It has to do with the first human cultural myth, and with all the other myths which necessarily follow. Until they change, nothing else will change. For your cultural myths inform your ethics, and your ethics create your behaviour. Yet the problem is that your cultural myth is at variance with your basic instinct.
Your first cultural myth is that human beings are inherently evil. This is the myth of original sin. The myth holds that not only is your basic nature evil, you were born that way.
The second cultural myth, arising necessarily out of the firs, is that it is the “fittest” who survive.
This second myth holds that some of you are strong and some of you are weak, and that to survive, you have to be one of the strong. You will do all that you can to help your fellow man, but if and when it comes down to your own survival, you will take care of yourself first. You will even let others die. Indeed, you will go further than that. If you think you have to, in order for you and yours to survive, you will actually kill others – presumably, the “weak” – thereby defining you as the “fittest.”
Some of you say that this is your basic instinct. It is called the “survival instinct”, and it is this cultural myth that has formed much of your societal ethic, creating many of your group behaviours.
Yet your “basic instinct” is not survival, but rather, fairness, oneness, and love. This is the basic instinct of all sentient beings everywhere. It is your cellular memory. It is your inherent nature. Thus is exploded your first cultural myth. You are not basically evil, you were not born in “original sin.”
If your “basic instinct” was “survival”, and if your basic nature was “evil”, you would never move instinctively to save a child from falling, a man from drowning, or anyone from anything. And yet, when you act on your basic instincts and display your basic nature, and don’t think about what you are doing, this is exactly how you behave, even at your own peril.
Thus, your “basic” instinct cannot be “survival”, and your basic nature is clearly not “evil”. Your instinct and your nature is to reflect the essence of Who You Are, which is fairness, oneness, and love.
Looking at the social implications of this, it is important to understand the difference between “fairness” and “equality”. It is not a basic instinct of all sentient beings to seek equality, or to be equal. Indeed, exactly the opposite is true.
The basic instinct of all living things is to express uniqueness, not sameness. Creating a society in which two unique beings are truly equal is not only impossible, but undesirable. Societal mechanisms seeking to produce true equality – in other words, economic, political, and social “sameness” – work against, not for, the grandest idea and the highest purpose – which is that each being will have the opportunity to produce the outcome of its grandest desire, and thus truly re-create itself anew.
Equality of opportunity is what is required for this, not equality in fact. This is called fairness. Equality in fact, produced by exterior forces and laws, would eliminate, not produce, fairness. It would eliminate the opportunity for true self-re-creation, which is the highest goal of enlightened beings everywhere.
And what would create freedom of opportunity? Systems that would allow society to meet the basic survival needs of every individual, freeing all beings to pursue self-development and self-creation, rather than self-survival. In other words, systems that imitate the true system, called life, in which survival is guaranteed.
Now, because self-survival is not an issue in enlightened societies (“God” refers here to other societies in the universe), these societies would never allow one of its members to suffer if there were enough for all. In these societies self-interest and mutual best interest are identical.
No society created around a myth of “inherent evilness” or “survival of the fittest” could possibly achieve such understanding.
So, to close this entry, I really encourage all people to read the series called “conversation with God” by Neale Donald Walsk, as I feel that it portrays the most universal idea of a “God” if there ever was one.
