I know it is not as prevalent today, at least not in America where I currently reside. But for generations this idea has persisted among humans that some humans, by winning the genetic lottery, are better than other humans. These humans look down on their fellow humans and have referred to themselves in the past as royalty. This post is addressed to anyone out there that still has this delusion.
Were I to cut you open, you know what I would find? The same blood, organs, muscles and bones as I have, were you to slice me open. Your blood is not blue. It is not somehow more pure. You might have a better red blood cell count or something like that. But ultimately, your blood is exactly the same as my own.
The only value your blood has, the only value it can have, is the value you give it, and others stupidly agree to. I no longer contribute to this collective unconscious agreement. I no longer buy into the idea that there is any such thing as royal blood or bloodlines. All I can see is something like we can see in pure-bred dogs – a lot of inbreeding for some stupid ideal, the reasons for which have long since been lost to time.
The circumstances you were born into, the genes you happen to carry – none of this makes you special. Your stubborn belief in your specialness only serves to drive a wedge between you and other humans. It is a divisive mindset. When you see yourself as above and separate from another, it makes it easier for you to hurt them. This banner of separation humans have been waving for thousands of years is the source of all conflict, all war.
If the “touchables” or royalty in India saw the untouchables as their brothers, as their sisters, as connected to them and one with them, it would end generations of suffering. For a place where everyone goes to seek enlightenment, India is one of the least enlightened countries in the world, perhaps second only the Muslim countries like Iraq and Iran. If you turned to the one next to you and could see God sitting there, you would not continue to act the way you do.
You are free to believe whatever you want, and if you want to believe that you are in some way better, go for it. But understand that this is a belief, not a fact. It may be a fact to you, and the circles you hang out in. But in the eyes of Creation we are of equal value. God is in each of us. We are connected, we are one, and this is our true value, this and the essence of who we are. Those are the only things that survive long after your physical form has perished.
Who are you inside, as a person? As a human being? Are you truly living to your full potential? Are you following your dreams and passions? In what way are you contributing to the whole of humanity? What legacy will you leave behind, that has had a definite, positive impact on others? Or are you gliding through your life, expecting everything to be handed to you, contributing nothing, expecting the world? If you were laying on your deathbed, right now, could you honestly say you have no regrets? Do you like yourself the way you are, the way you treat others?
Answer these questions honestly.
Egypt is filled with the crumbling aspirations of those who wanted to be revered as gods. Some of our most beautiful architecture is dedicated to those who had wealth and power. Yet little else of their legacy remains, besides dust and bones. So many lives have been sacrificed on the alter of someone’s ego. This idiocy must stop! And it starts with us, from this moment on, refusing to buy into this crap any longer.
