No I'm sayin;

"Having separate self consciousness doesn’t mean you are really separate, but
it does mean having a total ‘illusion’ of separateness from everyone and everything
else in the Universe. And when a person truly believes they are separate, they naturally
focus on themselves. And when someone believes they are separate, and they
focus their attention, and their energy, on their ‘self’, this naturally leads to ‘self’-
ishness. This is very important my son, pay close attention. This is the BIG issue.
The Big problem of all problems. The only REAL problem. As silly and simple as
it sounds, it is serious - simple selfishness is the root of all problems and ‘evils’
that exist on Earth. This is one of the greatest, most important teachings to understand,
so say it back to me - selfishness is the root of all problems and ‘evils’ that
exist on Earth.”
“Ok. Selfishness is the root of all problems and ‘evils’ that exist on Earth.”
“Good. And again, how does this selfishness come to exist?”
“Uh...”
“Where there is such separate consciousness as humans have, everyone perceives
everyone else in an ‘us and them’, and a ‘me against the world’ fashion.
When this occurs, which it naturally must with separateness, there will naturally be
attempts to get, or take, from others, and keep others from getting what you have.
It is perfectly natural, and in its own warped way, logical. And where does it all
leave us? Where there is separateness and selfishness, there will be strife, discord,
injustice, taking from others, harm to other beings, creatures, the environment,
etc.. So when someone says something about the problems of the world being
from political parties, or greed, or money, or war, or lust, or vanity, or carelessness,
or whatever, what do you say?”
“That they are only branches. The root of all problems, all evil, all suffering,
is selfishness.”
“And why is there selfishness and thus all these evils?”
“Because it is the natural outcome of separate self consciousness - of thinking
you are separate from the Universe, and thus all things in existence.”
“And so what is the only cure for evil, suffering, and all problems?”
“Losing separate consciousness and selfishness by regaining consciousness of
our Oneness with everything. Universal Consciousness.”
“And how can one regain Universal Consciousness?”
“Through Unselfish Love, self-sacrifice, caring, giving, seeing the illusions of
self consciousness that we carry with us in our mind, and breaking them.”
“Please don’t let the teachings that promote Oneness be misunderstood as
promoting a ‘one world religion or government’ where oneness and peace are
enforced by human rule or dogma. Nothing could be further from what we mean
to convey. We are first of all proponents of freedom, and free will. I’m talking
about an internal way of being, a consciousness, that includes sensitivity, compassion,
and freedom - and caring about all people, creatures, all creation, as much as
you do about your self.
“Are you saying all governments are bad?”
“No. Just incomplete, and that they won’t ever solve all the problems, or work
properly unless people themselves changchange inside. Certainly, some governments are
formed just to wield power for an elite group over the people. But sometimes gov
ernments are formed to administer, and insure justice between all the separate
beings it controls, but no form of government can really ‘work’, or last, when separate
consciousness exists. Why? Because the people running the government
have the same separate consciousness, and when they get power, you see the worst
of selfishness, and they can appeal to the selfishness in the populace, to get what
they want. When you stop and think about these things it is easier to understand
why the Children teach that only when all people have Universal Consciousness,
and everyone is primarily governed from within by the Universal Spirit, will there
ever be peace & harmony, and freedom from tyranny on Earth.”
“Why did you say it that way - on Earth.”
“Because there is so much more, and the Earth is just...."
