Sweeping dirt from the surface does not help prevent the virus in the roots of thinking which again rises to consume humanity till the roots of education are cleared with teaching positive thinking, contentment, peacefulness and self respect as a part of the educational curriculum and family upbringing
Negative thinking spreads from a suffering individual to mass consciousness, from micro to macro levels, and multiplies suffering for all .A negative focus of thinking, leads to inherent corruption, dis-satisfaction as the dominating internal focus , criticism of optimism, impatience, fear of losing fame or surface reputation, complaining attitudes, and mass aggression in the form of terrorism and wars. As the inner disharmony surfaces up, individual bodies face diseases/abuse. alcoholism, drug addictions and the planet Earth throws up suppressed negative energy to restore its inner positive balance in the form of floods, epidemics or violence .
Once the dirt shows up on the surface , the authorities desperately seek to erase the dismal picture without looking into the cause, which arises from the roots of the educational system . .
A sustained focus on the need to improve physical accomplishments at the cost of sacrifice of inner understanding, which begins in childhood as a side-effect of the general focus on ‘what is missing ‘, leads to development of greed overruling need, in adulthood as the mind-set that seeks continuous improvements moves to a cycle of greed which redefines ‘need’ as an endless, disproportionate craving for more. Greed leads to restlessness, obesity, alcoholism and corruption which lead to rising frustrations and anger in mass consciousness.
Instead of correcting flaws in the educational structure, there is a search for Who to blame when conflicts escalade. Subsequently, the visible flaws of government policies, terrorists and criminals are blamed almost as arbitrarily, as famines are blamed for lack of water supply.
Metaphorically, just as the primitive man passed responsibility of every problem on the rains, in the modern day, the government policies of the day are conveniently blamed for all unrest in society while individuals escape responsibility . However, the government as a macro unit, reflects the problems faced by individuals as micro units.
Once the individual mind’s dominant vibrational point is set on an energy cycle of being negative & restless, governments cannot control violence by sweeping dirt from the surface. Peacefulness is eroded by focusing on negative aspects of life and complaining about injustice, without understanding that there is virus in the roots of behavior.
Children learn more by imitation of adult behavior than preaching . Since domestic violence, bullying, abuse or threats, continue as tools for teaching children , violence in adulthood or bullying is an accepted norm when these children grow up to be leaders. Economic dominance is used to threaten other nationalities because it is traditionally assumed that competition is necessary as Earth is a scarcely resourced planet, wherein bullying & monopolization help to survive.
Logical methods of reasoning are ignored as violence and competition offer faster methods of achieving an outcome, even though it does not change inner mind-sets to positive. Criminals and terrorists are created because there is an inherent belief that competitive violence helps in instilling obedience. Wars are planned for by competing armies, being maintained at the cost of sacrifice of emotional/ human development.
Even entertainment in the modern world revolves around competitive sports, competitive dance programs and the paradigm of defeating the weak. People waste hours to relax by watching cricket and soccer matches because the hormonal ups and downs created by competitive situations, work as addictions . There can be far greater relaxation created if the same amount of time and energy was invested on meditation , sleeping or just being in a peaceful or positive state of neutral detachment . Relaxing the sense organs helps in improving health and happiness while watching sports or eating junk foods have negative effects on being peaceful or healthy. Yet, the war games are created and cultivated by adults enjoying the virtual emotional killing as happens in video games .
The same war mind-set spreads to real life from the sports field, and creates religious fights, terrorism and crime thrills. The more criminals and terrorists are killed, the more they get created further as the focus of individual thinking remains on enjoying competition.
The abusers who exert negative power to win success ,feel most anxious, bitter and unhealthy themselves . However, abuse continues to rule as competitive success is glorified – be it negatively exerted or positively responsible. Just as children get away by obtaining good marks through cheating, adults get away by obtaining power by side-lining ethics and betraying mass welfare .
There is no distinction made between negative power and positive power as minds are conditioned during childhood by the educational structure which does not teach a distinction between positive power ( success with understanding , satisfaction and happiness ) and negative power (success without contentment which reduces peacefulness or happiness).
A balanced mind would aim at addressing both spiritual and material needs so that happiness and health improve in self and others; but a competitive mind aims at success even if the pursuit deteriorates health and peace of mind for self and everyone involved. .
However, due to lack of training in schools, the spiritual aspect of life is ignored as irrelevant. The mind which is trained on the basis of competitive success fuels the need to defeat and kill others to survive itself, as an individual, a country or a religious sect.
There is no awareness of concepts like Spiritual Evolution , Emotional Management and Emotional Intelligence, because the spiritual or emotional aspects of life are neglected in mass education systems. The child’s mind trained on constantly seeking improvement, is never allowed to be different than uniform .
Since, it is unusual behavior to be peaceful or content , training in peace and happiness is left to a trial and error process instead of being customized by using methods of Emotional Management which has several techniques for creating happiness , as a deliberate choice just as good health is created as a deliberate discipline . However, the total focus of education remains on teaching technical, mathematical or scientific skills which makes children feel like non emotional robots obeying masters.
Adults who start thinking like robots become mechanical in approach, feel sad and empty in all free moments and usually suffer from bad health but do not understand why there is negativity in their life. Robots can only obey or feel lifeless and when human beings are trained as robots are, they become as clueless about how to create happiness by using love, care and positive thinking . This insistence of obedience over teaching emotional evolution creates imbalanced adults who escape into shopping , sports, alcoholism or eating fatty foods; whenever any emotional problem comes up; instead of applying an organized emotional problem solving process to resolve issues.
Deliberate escapism from emotional conflicts release negative hormones which subsequently creates diseases in the body and anxiety problems in individuals . ( The healing aspect of Emotional Management is given in my books : A Course In Emotional Management & The Creation Of Happiness: the Energy War, a soul’s perspective )
However, in the modern era, just as famines have been controlled by water management through a focus on technological development, the ‘famines’ of contentment and happiness need to be controlled by training children to be content and peaceful as a part of school curriculum from childhood..
Children need to be trained to sleep more , rest more and do activities at intervals so that focus is on quality of performance rather than the quantity of work. Training in peace needs to be cultivated by disciplining children to sit and be silent for at least a minute in every hour so that the mind gets into habituated to being in peace with practice.
Quality of performance automatically increases multi-fold when inner free space is created in the subconscious mind as a deliberate practice.
