If man had a mission to accomplish on the Earth, he failed it
Lost in the foggy midst of time there is an image, called
God, painted with the colors of traditions, superstitions and the
fear of the unknown. These colors, furthermore, are tainted by greed,
lust, egotism and paramount ignorance. And this image is centered
in the ego, in selfishness. It belongs only to your self and to no
one else. Whoever you are, this is the plain truth.
"...it is a Knell, That summons thee to Heaven, or to Hell."
Forgive me and, for a while, forget your personal god: because that is an image of something that you cannot encompass, because whoever you are you can have but a shallow understanding and deep ignorance of the same, because that image - split unequally in well over seven billion minds is, itself, but an infinitesimal tile of a grandiose cosmic mosaic, because that intelligence is that which men call God - spread within a multitude of beings but, as such, veiled to them by the mysterious immensity and beauty of the cosmos while, on a cosmic scale, it is an impersonal, neutral and ego-less intelligence though, within its 'creation' - even if this term may somehow be unlikely appropriate in this context - it assumes an individual ego, the me, you, or them who bring about an evolving social system.
This intelligence has a mission to accomplish, hidden to us, a mission which cannot be understood by the multitude of beings within which it thrives, not until they act in unison centered on a common frequency, a frequency to which we give a name which, veiled by selfishness, greed, lust and pride, we do not understand, that is, love, just like that other name - god - which we so much misuse, veiled by tradition, ignorance, superstitions.
That is what is meant by "If man had a mission to accomplish on the Earth, he failed it", there is little if any doubt that we are on the wrong path: we turned that image, our reality, against ourselves. Whether this wondrous planet and a great brain were given us by chance or 'divinely' is beyond the grasp of our knowledge. The mission was to develop our inner qualities, a peaceful way of life, and a better environment. Our choice was technocracy and monstrosity.
