It has been interesting to read comments from yesterday’s post. The amount of emotion coming from people in relation to the 26th of January is huge… Emotion of all types, some guilt, some shame, some sorrow, some anger and some staunch patriotic happiness fueled by some kind of deeper anger. Whatever it is it all falls under the banner of the human ego and unfortunately over time we have been conditioned to live most of our time driven by the ego. It actually doesn’t really exist, it isn’t a physical thing like the heart or the brain and it’s validity is often questionable as it can never be a very true representation of the individual because it is made up of so much complex conditioning gathered through time, not only from our childhoods, but from the generations before us. So many horrific struggles endured by humans around the world have been fueled by ego and to this date most of the worlds major decisions are made in this fragile state. People, if we are able to put ego to the side ( which is incredibly hard) and take a breath together then things become quite clear. The wrongs of the past are nobodies fault, it’s all ok, it is what it is and the guilt, pain, shame etc don’t need to be taken on by the individual, it’s pointless. it’s also ok for us to celebrate this beautiful country and be proud to be Australian. A day for that is indeed important. However the truth remains that the 26th of January does represent horrifying acts of terror and war to a lot of people in this country and that’s ok too, the ego doesn’t need to react to that. People commented that by posting those truths I am creating more division among people but the truth is the division was created long ago and sweeping things under the rug (something we were conditioned to do in this country) may temporarily make us feel a little more at peace and free from tension but it still keeps the division at large. By changing the date of Australia Day it would show that we have the ability to put ego aside and begin to walk forward as humans United but also give us the opportunity to remember that the day should mainly be about country and all plants and animals that inhabit this land and sea.
