The Soul

Picture: Marc. Chagall. (1945) - The journey of men towards the creation of soul. Painting entitled "The juggler": in the middle there is a character with the body of a man, the face and wings of a bird (freedom and dignity.) It stands on the circus ring: it raises its left leg up to its face (the difficulty of learning from one’s mistakes) and is wearing a watch on its arm (it marks the course of time.) Picture: Marc.

All the religions, without any exception, believe that men have had a soul since their birth.

Throughout the history of mankind, Giorgio Gurdjieff is the only one who has astonishingly said: "You don’t have any soul."

The only one! Despite the various religions.

Gurdjieff stands out from the crowd and claims that men have no soul; therefore, the place intended for the soul is actually empty.

Anyhow, we may try to create it.

 

Just like G. Gurdjieff, I know that we have come into this world with a soul, but the idea that men are born with a soul acts as a hindrance.

It has let men fall into a deeper sleep: yes, you are born with a soul, God is within you, the kingdom of God is within you, what should you do now?

Work hard to reach those things that are not within you, such as money, power and reputation; since no one says: "Every child is born with money (I am not referring to the money belonging to one’s parents or legacy!), every child is born with political power, every child is born with a reputation." Nobody says that.

These are targets to be achieved.

Freedom, awareness, God - whatever you may call it - must be discovered, and it often requires great efforts.

It is hidden, dozy; it must be enlivened and brought to maturity.

It must bloom and bear fruit.

Conversely, I think that you were born free, with equal dignity, respect and rights. ... otherwise, we may quietly keep on telling lies, choosing beautiful words which thus lose their meaning.

We are not the same.

In this article, I would like to focus on Violence and provide an insight into all its various aspects.

It goes without saying that the approach to violence takes on either an objective or a subjective connotation depending on the subjects who use violence, i.e. the oppressed or the ruling class.

Put simply, it is impossible to equate the violence of the "Settler" with the violence of the "Colonized person": the violence of the Settler against the Colonised person and the violence of the latter against the former; these "two" kinds of violence are clearly distinct.

In fact, the violence of the Rich and the violence of the Poor are not the same thing: the Poor actually fight against the root of the power and try to redeem themselves from the violence suffered, which in turn addresses the weak and urges the poor to put the blame for their failure on the lowest, forever repeating the reasons underlying their own failure and oppression.

Obviously, the violence of the Poor who wants to take the place of the rich, thus vexing those who are equally poor or even poorer, looks like the violence of the Rich, since it is based on the same feelings of envy, oppression, grudge and revenge.

This behaviour feeds the violence of the Rich and is also responsible for it.

This violence-revenge does not express the urgency to totally overcome one’s status of exploited or exploiter, as the "grudge" does not rely on "the Last will be the First, and the First will be the Last, so that there will be neither First nor Last."

However, from a logical point of view, the violence used by the "Rich" is different, because the rich can draw on countless resources to act in the name of beauty, magnanimity, mercy, pity and in harmony with the whole world, while the Servants are needy and deprived of the enlightened rationality, therefore they are generally less free and aware than the Rich or even than those who are neither rich nor poor, but released from opposing antagonisms.

Someone asked us: "Modern prophetism often talks about God, so what is God for you? And what religion do you profess? What is the meaning of this word? Are there any other Gods? If so, who are they?" 

A. as soon as you cease to be, you will become God.

However, please remember that Modern Prophetism has always regarded this entity as "The Great Light", I will tell you why later on.

But now let’s focus on God.

God is nothing special; God is our actual essence.

God is our existence.

If I tell you that you are God, I am just saying that we exist, you exist!

In our own language, existence and God are synonyms.

Even the trees and the animals are God, just like the stars and you all.

And you, who are reading these words, or you, who have contacted me, are God!

Maybe you did not know it.

In fact, you may not be aware of your divine nature.

But we are aware of it!

And when we become aware of our divine nature, we can also realise the divine essence of the others.

Therefore, it is hard for me to tell you how many Gods there are.

They are countless ... All the living beings are Gods, but each of them features different levels of acknowledgement, accomplishment and awareness.

 

Now let’s focus on the tenth right: Meritocracy.

Democracy has failed, we cannot ignore this fact; we have gone through various types of governments: aristocracy, kingdom, democratic city-states and now the whole world is exalting the idea of democracy.

However, democracy has never solved any problem, but rather has introduced new ones.

Precisely in the light of these problems, Karl Marx assumed the dictatorship of the proletariat.

I do not support this idea, since my own assumption goes far beyond democracy.

Democracy means "a government coming from the people, promoted by the people, intended for the people." But these are just words!!

For example, in India there are nine hundred million inhabitants: how can nine hundred million people exercise their power?

They must choose a delegate. The population does not rule, but chooses a ruler.

What are the criteria underlying this choice? How do they choose their representatives?

And, above all, how do they choose the right ruler?

Have you ever been taught democracy?

No, not at all. Ignorant masses can be easily controlled.
