2012 - Do the Ten Commandments hold the Solution to the World's Problems?

In these current times, it seems that to human beings nothing is sacred anymore as we're basically all set loose on a 'path of spiritual awakening' withing the principle of 'to each his own', wherein each human seems to basically be free to find their own truth, when there used to be a time not so long ago when everybody still went to church, prayed and believed in the ten commandments of God as our moral code.

As our capitalist system grew over time, religions like Christianity made way for the 'Religion of Self', where the holy gospel of God as what is written in the bible has been replaced by 'the Secret Law of Attraction' with the central belief-system being 'the Pursuit of Happiness' through accumulating wealth and our priests are now people like Oprah, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Bashar and other 'modern day Guru's' who's message is to seek your hearts true passion and basically focus all of your attention on yourself and personal accumulation of wealth - apparently breaking loose from the 'shackles' of religious traditions, rules and dogma where one was required to 'obey' the word of God as some entity seemingly separate from oneself.

It is at the moment clear to see if one were to look at the situation in the world on every level (political, social, economical, ecological) that capitalism, as this glorified idea of personal desires being the single most important point in the entire universe to which all life must bend and bow, isn't quite working out as well as hoped and planned. The consequences of having been consuming the earth within actually believing that resources our infinitely provided as if earth is some magic pot of gold at the end of a rainbow that never runs empty, are now starting to show in many ways, for instance in our world-wide debt crises (as an obvious result of no real understanding of how our economic system actually operates), nature going crazy (as an obvious result of no real understanding of how our ecological system actually operates) and human beings going insane by revolting, striking, killing each other and killing themselves (as an obvious result of no real understanding of how our human mind system actually operates).

So within all this mess in the world currently, human beings are looking for themselves, looking for the purpose to life because they start to feel lost and desperate - which explains the whole New Age Movement and the belief in 2012 as apparently 'The Year of Human Awakening'. And as we see that the whole point of 'individualism' as what consumerism basically represents has only caused us to make one big fuck up of our world by not having equated the actual consequences of our actions here - perhaps we should look back on more 'peaceful' times when human beings didn't seem so lost within themselves and looked like they had a sense of purpose, morality and principles to live by.

Let's have another look at those Ten Commandments of God for instance, as what our forefathers not so long ago lived by - we may find the answer to our unrest and general 'fucked-upness' and after all, history should be investigated as it is the very foundational structure which the current systems in society are built upon and it is in essence that which our parents have taught us as what was given to them by their parents as the knowledge and information that form the belief-systems that make up the way we see and experience the world and ourselves.

So, let's have a look at these ten commandments from the starting-point of considering their practicality in providing us with a real-live liveable solution for life on earth:

ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'

TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'

THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'

These first three commandments are already in fact about pretty much the same thing, which is God trying to establish just how awesomely almighty and great he is - though when it comes to actual support with regards to life on earth, they prove themselves to be quite useless. So, that's a shame - three out of ten commandments wasted, lets hope/assume God knew what he was doing when writing these.

FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'

Oops, there goes another one - again God on his self-glorification trip.

FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'

Ok, we may be able to work with this one - so lets examine shall we? How does honoring your father and mother contribute to establishing actual world-peace for all living beings? Firstly it seems pretty odd that out of the billions of beings in the entire world, I would have to basically only really listen to what just these two beings have to say and not because they are really special and have special super-powers with which they can save the world, but only because these two people just so happen to have created me. It seems to me that this statement has a rather deceptive effect, because based on this commandment one would be inclined to believe that for some reason my parents are more special and important than everyone else in the world, which makes absolutely no sense except for those who want to be worshiped by their offspring so they can feel special and powerful - which is total abuse because if we look at the practical implications of this commandment, this would imply that basically human beings don't have to honor earth as the plants and the animals as that which is life or anything and anyone else but only these two beings as 'mommy' and 'daddy', for no other reason than pure chance and coincidence. It is easy to see that this would make a convenient justification for a lot of abuse done to earth, the animals and other human beings that are not 'my parents' because apparently 'I only have to honor my parents'.

SIX: 'You shall not murder.'

Yeah, I guess this is a cool one - though this should be evident as part of the natural expression of my being. It's almost as though God is assuming that I will murder if he does not forbid me to, which means that he's basically calling me a murderer already within this commandment - and that would actually explain a lot when having a look at the behavior of humans in this world, where most are walking around with thoughts of anger, resentment, spitefulness and hate towards another though still restraining themselves from actually putting it into action and then some will actually go and kill other humans because they become so driven by their inner thoughts of anger and hate that actually exist in each human. Thus apparently proving that we need God to tell us to 'not murder' - though actually when having a look at this situation in common sense, the fact that murder exist in the first place is because we never bothered to investigate ourselves as to where, how and why we experience these thoughts and emotions of anger and hate towards others because we've come to simply accept that this is who we really are, murderous beings as that is what God is actually implying in his commandments.

When really it would have made a lot more sense if God would have made this 6th commandment look more like this:

"SIX: 'If you see and/or experience an emotional reaction and a thought of anger, resentment, hate, jealousy, or spitefulness existing within yourself - do not allow yourself to be directed by it and realize yourself as a self-responsible being. So, forgive yourself for having allowed yourself to separate yourself from and give your power away to these systematic thoughts and emotions as though they come from a higher power and thus apparently have power over you. Realize yourself as God as oneness and equality as all that exist."

Now, this commandment we can work with - because herein the responsibility of each human being is implied, wherein the human being is not just a slave or inferior being in relation to its own inner experiences and reality itself, but it is shown that it is in fact self-responsible in all ways, with the responsibility to always do what is best for all living beings in oneness and equality.

SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'

See commandment SIX

EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'

With this commandment we again lack any form of expansion or explanation as to why a human being would want to steal in the first place - it is really as though God assumes that the human being is a lying, cheating, stealing, manipulative, hateful sack of shit that needs to be contained through these commandments to be able to more or less live together with the rest of humanity. Moreover it seems that God has not grasped the concept of 'tracking down the root and weeding it out permanently' which is done through introspection and taking self-responsibility wherein one is only able to really stop something (like a desire/behavior/thought) if one is fully aware of where it comes from, how it was created and how self is responsible for its existence. So, it's a shame that God didn't mention this in his commandments as it would have assisted humanity immensely in existing on earth in the best way possible (unless obviously that was not God's intent for the human).

NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'

TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'

What strikes me as interesting about commandments EIGHT, NINE and TEN, is that they clearly imply that there exist some form of desire towards 'having certain goods' within the human that will then result in stealing, bearing false witness and coveting the neighbor's house - though God failed to mention completely where this desire comes from or what it is based on.

When we have a look at reality, all human desires to have goods are based on and result from our current monetary system of capitalism wherein we have to compete with each other in order to survive instead of working together and wherein some humans simply are left out of the system for some unfortunate reason or another. Yet, if we lived in a different monetary system that is here to support each living being equally and where humans learn to cooperate rather than fight each other, we wouldn't desire to steal, bear false witness or covet another person's goods because there would be no need to.

It's fascinating that God himself seems to, within his very commandments, already assume that the capitalist system is like something that is 'attached' to 'life on earth' and inherent to life itself, when really it isn't because it is an economic system that has been created by mankind over time that could in fact easily be changed.

In fact, it should be changed as the capitalist system has proven itself to be very unpractical, not supportive of life and generally abusive towards human beings, animals and earth and quite frankly we can do much better - the only reason why we never bothered to search for solutions as alternative systems that serve to coordinate human co-existence is because of God and his commandments wherein God himself has set the human up to be quite limited, short-sighted and ignorant in its view on life and itself, by tacitly implying that 'capitalism is life' and therefore all human behavior that is the result of the capitalist system of 'survival of the fittest', like rape, murder, theft, adultery, abuse, etcetera is apparently 'who the human being is' and consequently the human will need these ten commandments to keep the human 'in check' and to apparently ensure a relatively 'peaceful' co-existence ... how convenient.

So, the conclusion when having investigated whether or not these ten commandments will or ever have really provide(d) a practical, workable, real-live solution for the human being to co-exist in a peaceful way here on earth with all other life-forms, is that the ten commandments have in fact proven themselves to be quite deceptive and very dis-empowering towards the human being, and it is clear that God must have some hidden agenda to apparently want to make the human believe that Capitalism as the 'system of survival of the fittest' has in any way got anything to do with life on earth while it is actually clear that Capitalism has done nothing but destroy life on earth and make life on earth impossible, having turned the human being into an insane lunatic that takes absolutely no responsibility for its actions or for its own existence.

And if we at this moment believe that we have left this whole 'God' and 'religion' point with the ten commandments and the worshiping behind us, without having even investigated how it came to be in the first place and without even realizing that who we are at this point as humanity is nothing but a continuation of history as belief-systems of previous generations that in some form or another have mutated in something else that only better serves the ego of the human we are sadly mistaken - as everything that we have ever done and are doing at this very moment has been based on this idea/belief that 'capitalism is life' as how it was professed by God himself in the first place.

There will never be a 'grand awakening of the human mind' as the apparent solution to the mess that we're in as long as we refuse to take responsibility for ourselves here on earth and for all of life that is here and as long as we refuse to consider that what we are doing and who we are at this moment is nothing but a continuation of history - so therefore we will have to forgive ourselves first, wherein we walk backwards through our history, investigating who we are, why and how, to then re-establish ourselves as self-respecting, self-directive, self-responsible and overall trustworthy beings that can be trusted with taking care of life on earth.

Investigate Desteni where you will find the tools of self-forgiveness, self-honesty and self-corrective application to be able to see through the deception that we as humanity have always been living and to get to the core of what is really here going on on earth - and to stand up for/as life and walk the change that is needed to establish a Heaven on earth as how life here was always meant to be.

Also check out an Equal Money System as the solution for earth we've been waiting for, that do not follow these bogus rules of a bogus God that brought us nothing but misery.
