Who invented war?

Humans. It rose because of imaginary things we created in our minds and how we then put importance on them and then slowly fought over them. Today we are doing the same thing. Our entire world is in the imagination right now. Our economy is inherently dependent on it. Hint, hint, MONEY.
Much agreed. Fighting is part of the life cycle. There must be a struggle. There must be a time to rise above, and in order to rise above and become better, there must be something to rise over, or something to become better than.
We did. I know that’s an oversimplified, obvious answer… but I meditated hard on a parallel question of why, in this space and time, we still have violence in our world. I was on shrooms and had a good 3 hours to break that down into smaller questions, but it always pointed back to we did it and are responsible. I think if we treat each other more kindly we can pacify the evil, destructive intentions that can grow in someone who is unhappy or mentally ill. I kinda had a god complex during the trip, wondering what I could do to help these troubled people and transform them. The conclusion I came to was that we all need to treat each other like gods deserving the highest love and respect, even the worst of us. I later watched “3 magic words”, a documentary on netflix about spiritual philosophy. Their 3 words were “I am God” and suggested that if everyone could realize this, that it’d be an immediate, internal shift of the mind into a higher, “christ-consciousness” (my own term). And with everyone on that level, war, violence and the worst of our world would end as no one wants to send god off to war, punish god, imprison god, starve god, etc. When we realize each life is as valuable as our own, we can forgive even the most ‘insane’ avatars of god’s consciousness and heal the thorn in our species foot.
@versai, Indeed if god were good, he would not allow evil. If god were god, he could do anything and should stop evil! This then leads to us being the responsible ones. We are it, god, brahman, the universe, and by every thought, action, and reaction we shape the world around us.
