- Jun 2, 2003Oh, yes, of course, to make them conscious of the game of
social/personal interests, and false identifications. The game of
power and authority. In short, the game of the worst of the ego
thing. Conditioning, the pretention of the system to make you enter
the system, for the sake of the system. Nausea.
But it shall be important that you can watch this for yourself. If
you are deluded, it is quite difficult to teach your children and
anybody about delusion. So to help others, first help yourself. If
we are conditioned, if we believe in systems, authorities, laws, the
shoulds and shouldnt's, well.......quite difficult to teach any
children to be aware, and much less free from the influence of the
owning thing, of the game of consumism and all the isms as fascism,
etc. (What about comunism, budhism, christianism, hinduism, judaism,
and all these isms?????) Certainly love hasn't been called lovism.
Aware-ism? Ok, so let's be aware (discrimination)of the good parts
of the isms, if any.
PS: Love, truth, righteousness, peace, non-violence are out of any
