Parents who maintain their socially-given identity cannot be the true guardians of the child, asserts Harry Krueger. Published in Wake-up World on June 7, 2016.
Train up a child in the way he shall go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
– Solomon proverb
Knock on any door and inside will be found those responsible for the stolen lives of children. Instead of being protective of the child’s destiny, those caretakers are following the same protocol that was done to them as children. They are training up the child so that it will forever reflect the civility of the present culture. Used here, civility means psychological clones.
Parents who maintain their socially-given identity cannot be the true guardians of the child. The true destiny of children is to possess their own pristine awareness and to respond to life’s challenges from that state. The guardian’s true role is to guard, by first protecting the child from those who feel it is their duty to mold (clone) the child into the image liken onto themselves; to provide the space where completeness can come to fruition.
The true nature of the adult child will reject all ideologies because belief is not reflective of its prime directive. Mind (the aberration of the memory-senses complex) has deceived the guardians into believing what their true role is. Mind needs the patriotic spirit (energy) that will fight to protect the status-quo. The guardians are presently interrupting the child’s completeness process. Their role is to see that there is no disruption of the child’s energy flow.
From childhood to adulthood the chances of the child reaching its flowering (completeness) is extremely rare. The fragrance from such a being would be considered as unacceptable. The adulthood of such a being would see itself as a stranger in a foreign land. Societies believe they function at their finest with clones and drones and not with those showing independence.
The government and other social institutions have at their root the same directive, to influence the direction in which the energy (the Force) is already moving. So long as the energy remains undivided, it cannot be used by any outside source. It remains under the direction of Intelligence (the mysterious expression of all that exists). However, when the energy is fragmented, it no longer is capable of understanding that which is self-evident. The divisive (fallen) state is the cause of all chaos, confusion and delusion.
Presently our energy is not whole. That divisiveness is responsible for our being in a state of limbo. On the one hand we are captors of mind, and on the other hand there is no possibility of being the carriers of life’s pristine expressions. In ancient writings this conundrum is spoken of as “no man’s land, the drifting between heaven (Intelligence) and hell” (mind as chaos, confusion and delusion).
Clarity will again reign in our lives when through the apperception of Intelligence there is a pristine witnessing of our daily life’s responses. So long as we remain mind-fixated and not pristine awareness-centered, we are doomed to endlessly repeating our lives at the residency of doubt, despair and hopelessness.
Mind is a cradle snatcher that is constantly seeking energy for its present and future glorification. It does this by implementing into the child’s memory cells false images that are not compatible to its true identity.
When the prime directive is fully operative, we become Nature’s newest addition into the family of species. We human beings are unique among other life forms, we carry the seed of a prime directive that makes it possible to not depend on the physical environment for its responses to life’s challenges. Animals and other species depend solely on the physical environment (and its challenges) for their growth and survival.
With the arrival of human beings, instinct was no longer the only means to fulfill life’s expressions. With our arrival in the universe, Nature made a quantum leap and for the first time severed the thread of mechanicalness. As the first of its kind, we represent Nature’s complete cycle. We are the direct responders to life’s challenges. We are the universe’s Alpha and Omega. Our birth heritage is to no longer live under the laws of mechanicalness but rather to follow the Intelligence through the sensitivity of awareness. Freedom does not mean doing the will of mind but rather to express our gift of not having to function robotically. There is only one energy operating in all life forms. Our life is different, not better.
Because of an unintended dysfunction, we became side-tracked from our completeness. To get on track again Nature needs the assistance of the guardians to again bring the cycle to completeness. The success of Nature’s grand experiment remains with those responsible for the child’s care. The confrontation is now between good (pristine awareness) and evil (mind) both of which are battling for the soul (whole energy) of the child. As far as Nature is concerned, all its creations are perfect and so it does not interfere into the adjustment process. It is up to us to get it right and if not, Nature will eventually reject us. Through the pristine listening and guidance of apperceptive discernments flowing from Intelligence, we have the ability to transform from our present state.
Mind’s survival depends on its certainty that is a reality and not an aberration of its imagination. Mind can doubt many things, it cannot doubt its own existence. The ability that it can do is mind’s false belief of its power. Mind’s desires cannot be fulfilled without the energy of existence. So that it can endlessly pursue its hopes and dreams, mind has deviously seduced us into believing that we, as pristine consciousness, are mind. Our semi-hypnotic state is sustained by the hoaxer of all hoaxes, mind.
The moment we accepted the role as charlatan, we were instantly cast out of the garden of choiceless (effortless) living, to our present state where false beliefs (given by others) are accepted as the norm. From that tainted pool are spewn forth the misguided responses that are perceived as our daily relationships.
What is presently functioning are endless imaginary images believing themselves to be independent autonomous entities. We are not many, we are one (pristine awareness). Our prime directive is to serve as life’s pristine expression. Our flawless design gives us the ability to end the flow of energy to our captor (mind).
Through the process of apperceptive discernment we will realize how and why our life has been stolen. Knowing that you know the truth shall set you free, the first step (pristine witnessing) is also the last step in the resurrection (bringing to attention or use again) process. Life expressing itself through Intelligence is the meaning of life.
That meaning, that life is my wish for you.
California-based Harry Krueger has spent the past 43 years working to awaken humanity to concepts of peace, freedom and consciousness. When he was 35 years old, he discovered a book by Sri Krishnamurti (which he read 7 times in a row) and it changed his outlook and consciousness forever. Harry is now 88, and has never looked back.
