The Cuckoo Establishment
We need constant reminders that inspire us to practise, to tame the mind and break free. These reminders can take the form of positive associations or aversion. Each results in clarity, and the accomplishment of realisation.
It’s important to be aware of the influences that keep the population in financial and mental poverty.
A Cuckoo is nature’s cheat. A bird that lays an egg in another species’ nest, first removing one of the existing eggs and so taking its place. When the chick hatches, it kicks out the other eggs. The host birds then frantically feeds this over-sized parasite.
The Establishment generally denotes an elite that holds power or authority in a nation or organisation. The Establishment may be a closed social group which selects its own members (as opposed to selection by merit or election) or specific entrenched elite structures, either in government or in specific institutions.
We assume that the “establishment” in any country is there to care for us. Not so. We actually relinquish our sovereignty to it. They do our thinking for us! Everything that goes on in society is for the establishment’s benefit. We are the experiments for their longevity. Wealth doesn’t filter down, it filters up. It is a question of ‘the market’ v ‘society’.
These wealth accumulators hide inside society, to be fed and cared for by an unwitting populace. They look like us, but are parasites.
Our education class system is bent toward filtering out candidates to sustain the establishment. If we want to know who the inner establishment is, look for those who have this longevity: the aim of the establishment is to remain in power and it doesn’t matter who is in “government”. Everything is controlled, even our minds. While we think we have freedom, we are enslaved. When we realise we are not free, that is the path to freedom.
Have we all been “cuckooed”?
Had our intelligence replaced?
How scary is that?
Now, that’s a reason to practise!
The illusions in our mind
have to be constantly maintained,
as we might wake up at any moment!
The great secret:
We have always been free.
