Causes of violence / Seven Social Sins. Part 1
1. Wealth without Work:
Ill gotten gains, thievery, burglary, rip-off artists, swindlers, high tech swindlers and the like. There is no positive value in this negative way, of acquiring of goods or monetary values. When you actually work, you learn to appreciate values of what you have earned. You have a better sense of self worth and the knowing, that no law enforcement will come to take you away and imprison you, that will rob you of your freedom, because you earned your money and goods the right way, and broke no laws.
2. Pleasure without Conscience:
Just do it! I can do whatever I want! If it feels good, do it! It’s all about me! To hell with the consequences. Have you ever heard that? Have you ever said that? WOW! that is something to say isn’t it? We have to take responsibility of ourselves better than that. That is all selfish stuff there. Selflessness is the way to go. Live, let live, and help live is the way to go. It’s no all about me, it is all about us as a human race, there is no division in Spirit. We must embrace our consciousness at the superconscious level where all creation and life is born. To share each others pain and suffering to help create a better world, period. When you are doing things for a greater-good you release the selfish mind into the fire and out comes the positiveness of the higher-mind, whereas you have taken control of your conscience in a good way for you and the rest of the world. Take control of yourself, or spred your evilness, like an out-of-control-disease that infects everybody, and cause violence.
3. Knowledge without Character:
Knowledge is power, but without character you have a non-human, with no conscience, no feelings about what we have actually done to others, while we were manipulating our knowledge of their weaknesses over them. But we know what to do about that. Character makes up the human presence the way you show respect, how you care for others, showing dignity and empathy to another sentient being. Knowledge and caring shows character while deflating the personal ego, which allows empathic feelings to rise to the surface and build character. An educated fool, is someone with great knowledge, but uses it in an unwise manner and destroys themselves and their followers, by making fools of others, and then, they to, act as fools as well. The result of this is also unmitigated violence.
4. Commerce without Morality:
Manufacturing plants of any kind, gambling casinos are a fine example. We have to have jobs, to make a living and prosper. But if these self same businesses are only in it for the money, somewhere down the road we will start to suffer and become loss in our own greed for wealth and excess. We get caught up in the riches and forget the humanity. At some point the forgotten humanity of the workers will have low moral, lost of esteem and fall away to lower self values and decay inside ourselves. The work that these poor workers do is shoddy, incomplete, careless or no ethics, no pride in themselves or their work. If more attention is paid to others in a fair and equitable manner geared toward positive prosperity and building up the working stiffs by paying a them a good salary, health care, moral building skills, and a sense of self-worth, pertaining to each and every one of their peoples, we would thrive and grow, with no place for lack and low morality, that brings on depression and hate and violence at home. There is no concern as to what is going to happen to the neighborhood, it suffers complacency, apathy, blight and then death of the neighborhood. All life is drained out of the area because of greed and officials with their hands in the piggybank sucking the last breath out of a neighborhood, for their sake, not the people, in order to make a big profit margin for themselves.. Again, to hell with the neighborhood, I am making money. The effects here is a loss of spirit, the heart and mind has been ripped out of the fabric of humanity here, a loss of hope, especially for the poor that lack the power to fight back against the authority. At least this is how the poor people feel. Immediately, the people that can moves out, leaving homes and businesses in despair and blight and death. No hope? They have loss sight of hope. Then violence is not far behind. It’s definitely coming. No jobs anymore, families falling apart, no money to buy even the smallest of needs, then we go to drugs, prostitution, robbery, theft, assaults and etc. to survive. Breaking all of the laws to just make it thru the day, then you are imprisoned by the law enforcement. All because of greed and misuse of funds for a few to reap a high profit. To hell with the majority. Violence will live in this environment of lack of needful things. Bring back good commerce to help rebuild morality before we all perish and leave behind a Ghost Town.
5. Science without Humanistic thought:
Lets explore the heavens, and try to find another earth billions of light years away, so we can populate it. We will probably screw it up too, just like we have already done on our home planet earth. Genetic Research, in order to develop the super-human or maybe sub-human to do our menial tasks. The harder you work the body the more beautiful it becomes, so what is going to happen to our physicality when these machines do our physical jobs at a maximum level? We are going to waste away, that’s what. The wasting away has already begun. You can see it in the physiology of our own bodies right now, as the machines slowly take over our physical work ethic.. Now we are angry and upset because our bodies don’t look right anymore. Look to the machines and excessive technology. The wise-geeks are making money off of us, and we just “follow” them right along like puppets on a string. No humanity there. Developing drugs for human use and pretend that it is a cure-all for what ails you without extensive research to see what happens to us, because the creators of these selfsame drugs wants to make money NOW. We don’t quite know what is going to happen to the people that ingests these potential drugs yet, but, let’s see what happens. Lawsuits in a few years or so, from people getting sicker and dying, looking for a cure-all in a pill in with no real success, only side effects, more sicknesses and eventually deaths and then lawsuits. No humanity here, but plenty of opportunities for violence.
6. Worship with Sacrifice:
Prayer, Meditation and Fasting is needed along with supplication to help the human develop into a more upright righteous person from within. Alas and alack, along with that your conscience will be raised and your eyes will be opened to see and discern more clearly. The ugliness around you is what you will have to depart from in order to save yourself. Friendships may have to be dissolved, move away to another area. Loved ones may be sacrificed, because what they do is not right in your eyes, as well as the eyes of God and the Law. Save yourself, dust your feet and flee from this way of life. You will be sacrificing yourself in a positive way. In the long run you will grow into a more wholesome and mature individual by saving yourself first, then you can return and save the rest of your friends, family and maybe a stranger. When you sacrifice yourself for the sake of righteousness toward another human or thing, reciprocity will come to you in different forms to assist you and reward you for your spiritual endeavors. You will have conquered violence and established peace inside your own self. This act alone prevents violence from growing and living inside of you. You are free. And so shall it be.
7. Politics without Principles:
Everyone knows what Politics are all about. You read about it in the papers, on TV, the radio, Twitter, Facebook, CNN and etc., all seems to have gone bad or astray, just a bunch of hyped up useless prattle and dramatic language to beguile and sway you for votes, and promise you anything that you want to hear. All of the Politicians, up to and including the Presidents of the world are being grilled, in the courts for some type of misbehavior or misspoken words supposedly taken out of context or a despicable act or dictatorship attitude of selfishness. Principles are a basic truth, and the law. The reality comes out when the law is broken and an investigation is activated, to root out the basic truth or principle of the misdeed or mismanagement of the thing at hand. Once again, no conscience of the people here, just power play amongst themselves, one political faction against another, while we the people suffer and resort to violence to try and get some type of satisfaction, from these politicians that we put into an official leadership status to help us thrive and prosper in this world as one, and not to rule over us. Remember this; God said ” for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the Heavenly realms. Peace-be-still. Meditate on these words of wisdom. And set yourself free of violence. Excessive violence destroys, Love heals all things. Love is the creator, thru faith and grace.
