We Can Bring Forth a New Birth a New World♥ From The Ashes of The Old

A crime against humanity is the effect of transforming hundreds and hundreds of thousands of tons of maize, of wheat, of beans, of palm oil, into fuel for the greedy giant oil corperations, is absolutely catastrophic for the Earth's hungry people.'The world price of wheat doubled in one year and the price of corn quadrupled, leaving poor countries, especially in Aisa and Africa, where poor and destitute have little money to pay for the food needed to feed their children or themselves.

There are solutions are available, but most have been blocked by those with cooperate interests. For they would involve a nonprofit collective effort to stop the cycle of poverty experienced by individuals and entire countries. We are rich in resources for ending poverty and there are many individuals and organizations who want to be involved in just this effort. We can change the statistic that 10 million people die each year because they don’t have the financial means to survive, or suffer ravages of Malaria approximately 300 million cases occur annually worldwide, and one to nearly three million people die of malaria each year. We could, as a family, put an end to needless sickness and poverty by a shift in consciousness and recognizing that we are all indeed one people, one community.

Perhaps first we must learn to recognise and address, that for many the state of being in spiritual poverty is a condition of not realizing the need to see and love all of humanity as one family. It is a veil of ignorance that obscures the truth that we all, all humanity and all creation, are interdependent and interconnected. Spiritual wealth is the opposite of individual greed and corruption. The coin of the spiritual realm is a conscious realization of compassion and empathy to want for another what one wants for him/herself. There are people with a lot of money who are inwardly impoverished; materialistic, shallow, selfish and cruel. And there are people who are inwardly wealthy with very little money. Not to glamorizing the state of poverty; even though some of the most happy kind and loving people I have known, have been among the poor. It’s absolutely possible to be inwardly wealthy and outwardly rich. However, a better life, and the basic needs of all beings on the planet could be met. It’s a matter of consciousness, of individual and collective values within a society and its leaders. And as the old corrupt empires fall into dust, it’s up to each and every individual to become involved.

Your thought advocates Judaism, Brahmanism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. In my thought there is only one universal religion, whose varied paths are but the fingers of the loving hand of the Supreme Being. In your thought there are the rich, the poor, and the beggared. My thought holds that there are no riches but... life; that we are all beggars, and no benefactor exists save life herself. Many a doctrine is like a window pane. We see truth through it but it divides us from truth.
~Kahlil Gibran
