We create our own stories, our own gods and reshape our own peoples We also create our own demons and enemies.
An old retired fighter once said to a traveler, "we learn not run from the enemy, but go towards them." In learning, his new pupil destroyed his heart and his lovers. And them, destroyed their own in turn. The traveler sits with piles of stories of all kinds now, from all over the world, in a library shelf like a white elephant of impotent rage in his room.
For decades the populations of the world have been subject of mass experimentation by its overseers.
In other stories, a people's Creator has gone mad working for his human creations which required using toxic chemicals to turn their raw materials into life, while working to reveal our own gift of growth from attachments and into self-knowledge, compassion.
For decades also, populations of the world are kept apart from their own full living potential not because of some evil or mad Creator or some insanely depicted required competition towards reproduction or respect.
Rather, because we continue to face our tasks through our mistakes and failures, knowing our deadly blows from through those we reject, shame and escape from, as our teachers of compassion if not more than those that we gravitate to or already belong and accept as our own.
Thus continues perhaps the stories of people's potentials outside of their fear's many perverted versions. #
