Is the concept of the country the root cause of all evil ?

Human society is build around the concept of the country.

We have divided our world into countries  for economic or security reasons but the reasons on which the concept of the country was founded is no longer relevant today. The division of the world into countries is no longer needed today . But, we are fighting wars and supporting terrorism on a concept which is not even valid for progress.

In fact, the divisions created by the country walls, prevent technological progress as transfer of man force from one country to another becomes restricted. The flow of goods and services is also blocked by national customs and boundaries. Spread of social welfare gets lopsided as the advanced countries exploit the third world.

The common man does not have a negative intention but partakes in the exploitation. It is only big business or mafia gangs which benefit economically by creating divisions . The defense industry and manufacturing weapons is a huge , profitable business for several.



The following is an excerpt from the book IN SEARCH OF HAPPINESS ( how past lives affect the present , a soul's perspective )

The concept of boundaries started in the primitive civilization, and extended to countries over time. The primitive man needed the boundaries to save his belongings. He had a dearth of resources because he did not have the means to exploit nature’s gifts. That is why it was felt that there was a scarcity of resources, that there was not enough for r all.
Today, with so much scientific development, there is no such dearth of resources but human beings continue to feel as threatened of losing their resources. The fear arises due to our mental conditioning which makes us believe that resources are scarce and we have to compete and hoard them.

As souls, our energy moves in circles and we multiply those feelings which we focus upon automatically. We are mentally conditioned into believing that resources are scarce and we continue reinforcing that energy with our focus on fear of scarcity.
In our lives, we keep practically manifesting the scarcity due to our negative focus even when essential resources are no longer as scarce.

Resources today are unequally divided but scarcity as such does not exist as it did in the primitive times. This physical reality of fearing scarcity continues to get created because we focus so much on competition now that we keep feeling deprived in comparison to others. Thus, resources continue to appear scarce at an individual level because we cannot share them.

Metaphorically, if a poor man becomes rich, he may always remain afraid of not having money. He may hoard money because of his fear of losing it. Similarly, though, we now have access to far more resources than we ever did earlier, we continue to build upon similar fears through illusory walls of division on who can own and exploit them.

Because of these illusory divisions, there is lack of mechanism to spread the benefits of scientific development. Food is thrown away by some countries whereas in others people starve. Rich people feel poor without new cars and diamonds while the poor feel deprived anyways. Further, destruction is caused by wars and fanaticism. Wars are fought for economic reasons but sold to the public as being for the country’s honour and self-respect. Like Dev said - Honour is a created phenomenon.

Instead, if we could focus our mind on the feeling that there is abundance for all, we would multiply the energies of prosperity and abundance of resources. Scarcity would diminish if not focused upon as reality.

We no longer need to spend on armies for protecting the concept of countries. We need to spend on developing bridges which can help spread the benefits of economic development. Also, we need to spend on developing human intellect so that we can rise above the need for using violence because when we kill others, we also devolve ourselves, as souls, and fall in terms of our own peace and happiness.

As Dev said –“It is the oppressor who has to realize”
People who fund terrorism to increase their wealth and power, or to satisfy their fanatic needs, do not realize that they are losing their own peace of mind in the process. They live in fear and insecurity more than others.
A need to be rich, powerful or fanatic for the sake of it, without realizing whether satisfying that need is contributing our to happiness or lack of it, by itself, is a negatively conditioned  pattern of thinking. It indicates a lack of training in understanding cause-effect relationships between actions and resulting emotions.

We need to ask ourselves that if humanity was not divided into countries, would we still need to spend so much of our resources on maintaining armies?
If the World was One, would not enmity created by worrying about impending wars minimize? When we are aware that, energies multiply in areas we focus upon, positive or negative, would we   focus on division by maintaining armies?

Instead of teaching little kids in schools about countries and divisions, emotional training in oneness could be inculcated so that our future generations get conditioned into creating abundance and happiness from childhood, taking the world as ONE whole.


 The Old Man ( Dec's spirit guide from the celestial realms ) raised some questions about the fabric of the structure of human society through the messages given to Dev, when he said that - the concept of countries is the root cause of all evil and destruction. Dev further elaborated on this message by interpreting it as – Human beings have been divided into irrelevant boxes. There are walls where none existed.
We, in the human society, are so conditioned into being divided by the illusory walls of countries that we never question ourselves on whether the concept is relevant in today’s society or not.
