A Planetary Soap Opera
[thoughts from ~burning woman~ by Sha’Tara]
“Man was created in the image of God (of the gods). So the ancients believed and taught. “There is nothing new under the sun” states an ancient wisdom text (Ecclesiastes).
“As below, so above.” (An important awareness, as expounded by the Teacher, YLea.
Earthians love drama, theirs and that of others. Endlessly, pointlessly, daily, they create and re-create their dramas and melodrama-dramas. They suffer in them and entertain themselves with them. All of their systems rely on drama to promote themselves. Their divinities – whatever they believe in – are nothing if not complete drama. All advertising is based on drama. Fashions and fads are drama. Love affairs, their successes and more obvious failures: all drama.
Why is drama so popular and necessary to life on Earth? The only conclusion is because every Earthian was “created” to be an actor who performs on cue. Life on Earth is basically pointless, beginning nowhere, leading nowhere. Rich or poor, famous or unknown, what is the difference in the end? Where’s the payoff, whether one is a good or a bad actor? Whatever is being said has already been said; whatever is being done has already been done. You cross the Mediterranean Sea in a trireme or fly across in a private jet… and the difference is?
If the Earthian actors were permitted to realize they are but bad actors in an endless soap opera some would probably be intelligent enough to question the wisdom of repeating the same moves ad nauseam. To keep an entire world as an on-going live performance over hundreds of thousands of years for the entertainment of sophisticated galactic watchers requires great skill on the part of script writers and producers. Some Earthians do wake up to the fact that all is not as it seems here. These “actors” are summarily written out of the production: the show must go on.
I have always wondered about the necessity of maintaining vast numbers of unknown and innocent victims — those tens of thousands who die each day of preventable causes. Who benefits from this? Not Earth, certainly. But these “extras” are necessary to the drama. All those deaths make it so much more real. How long would wars remain popular if no one died in them?
Would we not be moved to resolve our gross planetary injustices if the power to do so was really in our own hands? Actors say what the script tells them to say and do what they are told to do. So, without committing suicide, how do we get off the stage when we realize we really do not like the part assigned to us?
