Dear Diary, page #5 – Four Steps to a Better Existence

(Detail of «Danny Boy» by Francisco Bravo Cabrera/All Rights Reserved)

If you asked me what my formula for how to make a better world, I would not hesitate to reply that it must be governed by artists, poets, writers, playwrights, composers, dancers, choreographers, musicians and all those who have worked to educate themselves, better themselves and through that effort have tried to make a better world, govern. I do believe the Czech Republic started out that way after they rid themselves of communist oppression.

1- To make the country better we need to change the government right away. The wise have to be allowed to govern, like in Ancient Greece, who was governed by wise men of philosophy. Politicians are motivated by greed, ego and the quest for power. Some are so enamoured of power that they force their people to behave in ways that no one wants to, at least no one who loves freedom.

2-We have to educate our youth much better than we are doing now. Schools should not be centres of indoctrination as they are now. They should be places to form those who will eventually hold the reins of the country. In schools there should be, above all else, discipline, order and respect. Students have the obligation to respect their teachers, to obey them and to perform all their duties according to the norms and to complete their assigned work. They will have time enough for free expression, something typical and admired in youth. But first they must learn to be correct and respectful citizens. Peace depends on justice and justice on education.

3- We have to know how to be one with nature. We are not extra-terrestrials. We are part of the Earth as much as plants, animals, the wind, the clouds, the seas and everything else that lives in our environment. The Earth has consciousness and wisdom and we must learn to approach such knowledge. There are many ways and most of them lead to wisdom. We must learn to close our mouth and open our ears for at times the wind itself speaks to us and comforts our weary souls.

4- Finally, man must purify himself. We must let the spirit, the Great Spirit of our existence to create in us a pure heart and to renew us from the inside. Alone we are not, together, united with the Spirit, we are…

    The 4 minutes and 19 seconds of meditation music and scenery were just what I needed at the end of a busy day. Thank you. And, yes, we need wise people in government around the world, schools that prepare our youth to become good citizens and good leaders, and we all need to thank God for the world He has given us by caring for the planet and all people.
