Talking about what choices we make in life, my painting "Mammon"

We live in a world, where we are in service.  Sometimes, like America's president, to themselves,  but mostly to others we care about. Our children, we should all be in service to. Sometimes a parent, a spouse, brother, or sister. We do this to build our support group, A community, a family. 

Today self serving greed, and unbridled passions, have taken us from a tribal commune, to a narcissistic, spoiled, dog eat dog mentality,  that breaks down the cornerstone of what is right and wrong in society. 

We can choose to be in service to those around us, (whether family or not) to serve the greater good. We could, like most people today, choose to serve Mammon, (money) or GOD. 

Some only see service as a military exercise, where, we are told we support our Brothers in arms, to use the familial term, while actually killing those who oppose our tyranny. 

Service is not, a fast food job at a drive up window, although literally it is.

We serve each other everyday, how we choose to do it makes all the difference in the world. Will we do it spitefully? Only recognizing an eventual payoff? Will we do it altruistically? Understanding that those we serve, could be ourselves one day?

Consciousness is a shared experience.  Grace only comes, when we see those before us as a mirror. I am you, and you are me. Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

Today's corporate environment only erodes the human condition,  to a point of contention, and competition. There must soon come a day, when personal gain becomes an outdated modality. When the human beings unite for a better world, where war, incarceration, slavery, usury and indenturment, murder, and greed, become a thing of the past. 

Choose today to be in service to a complete stranger, to make their day a little better. If we all did this, we could have a Utopian society,  based on true goodwill,  and peace.

I challenge all who read this, to reach out to those in need. Help, without promise of repayment, without expectation of a Ouid pro quo. To give your own spirit the rise of vibrational frequency it sorely needs. Be in service. Learn absolute altruism. 

Become a member of the Human race, devoid of bigoted indifference. 

Essentially Love your neighbour as yourself, and open your heart to the possibilities.

Nicely done. Formal religions, I always find, are only concerned with their own followers or those who they might be able to convert. There is very little empathy and acceptance of difference in the world these days and that is a shame.

Jesus would never have approved of it, neither do I, they're mostly grifting confidence schemes, Elmer Gantry style hoodwinks. Besides, God doesn't need the money. We need to love one another, skip the non profit, tax dodging organizations all together. If you do so, pray for my fellow countrymen on fire at the present, bloody awful situ in Aus. And Ta mate?

Damn that was well said.

Tribalism just doesn't work on massive scales, only in communes.

Sad that our connection to nature has been displaced by mass psychosis driven by the greed of a few.

Mammon! That's cool. It would be funny if the lemmings had inadvertently been praying to Mammon all along and not the classical Christian God. All hail Beezlebub!

Righto mate.
So many people today, only visualize success as a financial pinnacle, as their soul withers from greed and lack of empathy. Being in service to those around us in need, is where the real reward of humanity lies, as we are all in this together. I recall Michael Tellingers story from Africa about the philosophy of "Ubuntu" from the Zulu, which translates "I am, because We are." Essentially the belief that the universal bond of "sharing" is what connects all humanity. Although I can't give any kudos to Beelzebub, ($atan/$anta) whose greed and avarice is the basis for all inhumanity, I can recognize Bob Marleys wisdom in seeing the imperfect as acceptable, and most likely more reliable.

Bravo! Well said!
Money is the root of all evil. Greed is the seed of destruction. If only we ALL could love each other despite of our differences. The world would surely be a better place. Kindness and Service are gifts of love; we must give baby step at a time.
Great sentiment Dewey. Write On!
