A spirit

April 24, 2012

A spirit about to be born begins to day dream of what life might be.  Being a child only happy at play, and learning how to be an adult.  Wondering what will be seen and touched and felt, guiding a path to maturity.  The dreams the goals the accomplishments and the defeats.  Will the life lead leave an everlasting impression on humanity?  Not if the spirit is born into poverty never imagined, and dies as an infant before living a life, because we still have not learned to live together as one.  The more people are educated to see the vastness of the universe, the more pointless fighting is seen.  The ability to pass knowledge to the next generation has helped us progress so far into a future unimagined not long ago, we are now able to provide that all of the next generation can be guaranteed a chance at life and can progress farther faster when we do.  It is when people let money separate them from other people progress slows down.  Money, made to make trade easier, becomes a tool of oppression when people let money define social status.  As we all know, it is not money that makes one respected and admired.
Leaders of the world have led civilization to the breaking point time after time in pursuit of more wealth used to separate and suppress by force.  How many fortunes have been invested into building weapons of fear instead of in technology to advance and enlighten the world we know.  The entire world rebels against tyranny.  Empires are built on trust and faith in fellow citizens, and crumble when truth and justice are corrupted. The uncorrupt are not to blame, those that you see every where working hard every day are innocent and outlast empires.  Let those that value money over humanity go insane playing a game you can only win by not playing.  The value of wealth is in how it is spent, like the value of a hammer depends on what it builds.  It is up to the people to ensure leaders remember the gaol is to build a better future for all.  We need not resort to violence, only to keep working and maintain our humanity.  Only animals that can’t find a way to work together fight each other.
