What is the true meaning of war?

ApotheosisWhen I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr David Hawkins, we discussed how in the 20th century, there was war taking place in some place somewhere in the world 97% of the time. Despite all the technological advances and the rising level of human consciousness, we have been at war for 100% of the time in this century. The corporate-owned media behave more like mouth-pieces for those who gain most from war.

Let’s get one thing right. War is a business. Governments who purport to be propagating freedom and democracy by invading sovereign nations have no intention of liberating those whose land they occupy. In fact, their own country is far from democratic or free. What democracy exists are token gestures to appease the public. The people who gain most from war are the Military-Industrial Complex and Central Banks, which are all owned by a small group of industrialists.

If you haven’t seen the movie, Zeitgeist, then I urge you to watch it as it explains the nature of money creation excellently. War is the most expensive business any government can partake in. The money to pay for war comes from the public via loans from Central Banks (owned by private individuals). Your money feeds the war machine  with all the devastation they cause. Last year $1.7 trillion dollars in 2012 particularly by the USA, China and Russia. Today’s latest British news include the killing of three British soldiers in Afghanistan, bringing total British soldiers killed to 444 since 2001 when the allied forces invaded the country. Of course, the statistics for civilian lives and casualties are far greater in number. These people whose lives are taken by militia are called ‘collateral damage’ just like some kind of minor side effect of war. The reality is that most wars lead to the deaths of far more innocent men, women and children than soldiers.

I have wracked my brain on many occasions on whether any military is needed at all. I wish it were the case that humans were evolved enough to live in peace without the threat of conflict. In reality, every country does need to have some form of military on standby perchance some lunatic or groups of lunatics decide to threaten nationals. Humanity’s collective consciousness is still not high enough to avert such dangers with diplomacy. However, when a government is controlled or even owned by corporations, especially from industries that profit from war-mongering, then the probability of war is very high.

Solutions? Perhaps we need to revisit our definition of democracy. Who is the government accountable to – the people or corporations? Are the transactions, activities and sponsors of politicians transparent to the public on a daily basis? How long do we wish to tolerate fear-mongering by politicians, the media and those who are in places of power?

The greatest solutions will not come from those who are already running an old corrupted and corruptible system. The change that needs to take place must come from oneself. We must questions our own modus operandi and ask questions such as:

  • “Do I operate from a place of fear or a space of lovingness and compassion?”
  • “Am I driven by past conditioning and programming or am I heart-centred?”
  • “Am I taking orders from my head or listening to my intuition and following my heart?”
  • “Am I authentic, transparent and working from integrity?”
  • “What am I doing to make a difference to the lives I am touching right now?”

These and many more questions need to be asked of oneself. What is the point of replacing one corrupt leader with someone else who is corruptible. I am sure the vast majority of those who end up in positions of power probably had very good intentions at the beginning of their life journey. There is no doubt that we need to change from within before we expect others to change. War is not going to go away too soon. The people who propagate it have far too much invested in conflict to give it up without a fight. However, we can and we will replace the war-mongers one funeral at a time. Even they cannot live forever. The challenge is to replace our leaders with those who are lovers of peace, balance and harmony.

Love, light and peace,
