This Earth is one undivided unit. We have divided it into many nations. Not just that, we have armies standing around each division, and we keep quarrelling and fighting every now and then. Earth itself cannot be broken into fragments, if broken then no one would survive. Are we being truthful while living with the belief that Earth is fragmented? This is something to think about. How entrenched are we in our own lies, this is its example.
Nationalist thinking is based on the lie that “Earth is fragmented”. Nationalist constitutions describe “rule by power centre”. “Rule by power centre” in essence is - Controlling mistakes by more mistakes, controlling crimes by more crimes, controlling wars by more wars. Constitutions of some nations also talk of public welfare. The underlying thinking there is – if all have money then they can all fight and survive. All of them declare that “life is a struggle”, that “struggle alone ensures survival”, etc. Are these declarations true? These declarations are at the root of all lies. All families, businesses, education etc are buried under these lies. Some try to escape from these lies, while others remain buried. Now we want a fundamental change in education.
