His diary said: “April 4th, 1984!” April! It seems that April is a very famous month! And our hero wrote in his diary his THOUGHTS! “Thought crime is death,” he said as they said for him to say. April is the fourth month of the year! Is it still allowed to continue with the diary? Yes? Good! So April is an excellent fourth month of the year, and it looks like, is somehow connected to March! May 4th is also an exciting symbolic date connected somehow to April. What the hell are you writing about? You might ask!
Well, it is just a brief inspiration from the film 1984 about the book with the same title of one George Orwell.
Someone said,” For those with eyes to see, coincidences are clad in shining light!”
Philosophy of good news came into life with the though to sharpen awareness there where it already existed, to awake it there where it was sleeping, and to boost it further where it already passed the honing process. Awareness that our mind is capable of activities outside of the margin of official psychology paralyzed with many useless definitions based on statistics. Our mind contains all universe!
That is not new. It is just suppressed as we somehow got lost in the oneway street heading towards the wall.
You might disagree, it is normal, but I strongly think that the basics of the system of our civilization are made of, human, humble, genuine concern for the goodness of people, even that there are, always, issues to address. Universal rights are recognized, thus allowing each man to try to feel free! And, it looks like, that In the process, the system is penetrated by the greed of minority serving another less than a minority.
That brings me to one colossal book called Philosophy of Freedom, written by Rudolf Steiner in 1894 and revised in 1918.
Quaranteen or popularly called, the old, made new, expression, “Lock Down” for everybody to understand is generally a great opportunity.
Even with masks introduced, gloves also, social distancing definitely, swimming in pairs only, and statistics from just as great intellectuals in their specific fields, we got the opportunity to meet ourselves!
Such a beauty to experience self, the one we did not have time to meet, the one that we forgot that exists! Becoming free?!
However, all those statistics masters did not let us be reminded that Josef Stalin said approximately: “It is not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count that count!”
Who is guarding the guardians?
In his book “Philosophy of Freedom,” Mr. Steiner is taking us to the journey towards ourselves.
Talks about “free will” and motives behind it. Lectures ( in 1894) that instead of different sciences trying to penetrate into separate realms of human life, there “must be a knowledge,” which seeks to synthesize the parts of each science taking man back to the “fullness of life”!
Our education system has changed from then onwards! From general knowledge towards the “specialized” one! You visit many of the specialists of any kind to find out that their understanding, awareness, feelings about life are so shortsighted and out of touch with common sense. Just empty.
In 1906 General Education Board of the USA, financed by Rockefeller foundation, issued the following statement:
“In our dreams…people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present educational conventions [intellectual and character education] fade from our minds, and unhampered by tradition we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or men of science. We have not to raise up from among them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen, of whom we have ample supply. The task we set before ourselves is very simple…we will organize children…and teach them to do in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.”
No need to comment.
This subject is so vast that quarantine diaries will continue to address it. However, let me share some of the thoughts of Mr.Steiner, a new “friend” of mine from 1894. Exited that this book came to my site and that I read it.
Apart from statistics, there is a feeling we all think about, and that is love.
His opinion was that love depends on the mental picture we form. More idealistic, it is becoming more blessed! Love is not the expression of “bare sexual instincts.”
To continue, even we say that love makes us blind, the good qualities are making love to actually open eyes. Those good qualities can pass by us without notice. For those that grasped them, love is awakening their soul. “No mental picture, no love.”
Whatever and however and ever, one is certain!
We can find anything outside of us, only when we find that something inside of us.
The day of this diary is Day 28, one of the days of April 2020.
