It is any wonder that there are all these troubles present in our society – when our internal nature is not regarded as a necessary function, and is constantly disregarded in the structures we live with.

How can it be that the lawmakers don’t want this fact acknowledged in society? These people do not want it recognised that we are individually dependent on our life force, absolutely without the influence of any other person.

If this fact is recognised, the position of power they believe in would not be able to function, they would have to concede to equality instead of controlling others for their own satisfaction, wealth and prestige that their assumed authority gives them.

A regard for the nature we are dependent on would have to take priority. Fact check: close your eyes and count to twelve then open them. What is it that gives you this ability? Our own internal awareness enables our perception before engaging in the thoughts of other things. It is our thoughts that affect our feeling, ability and enjoyment of life; it is not what others say and do.

We have been educated to forget this fact by distraction. How else can we feel the love of living, free of any form of tax and control structure?
